Circa 1862. Sitting on a bluff in a quaint landmark town, this historic rural home is listed in the National Register. Built in 1862, the brick Neo-Georgian farmhouse boasts English country gardens and a wonderful view of the Sierra Foothills. Enjoy welcome refreshments and beverages. Join the innkeepers for dessert in one of the parlors by the fire. Listen to the pump organ or piano, browse the artifacts, books and games. Sleep in a cherry spool, wrought iron or four-poster pine bed in a guest bedroom in the Main House; some feature clawfoot tubs and fireplaces. Indulge in the fabulous three-room Water Tower Suite with a separate entrance and deck, spiral staircase, clawfoot tub and wrought iron canopy bed. Linger over a gourmet breakfast with a changing menu in the sunny carriageway.
