A California bed and breakfast in Colfax, the Sierra Sun Cloud Inn is a luxurious Gold Country bed and breakfast. This beautiful New England style Inn is located in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Secluded among towering Ponderosa Pines on a spectacular 18 acre hilltop estate, the Inn rests on a park-like setting. The 360 degree views of the Sacramento Valley and several neighboring mountain ranges gives you the feeling that you are truly on top of the world. The meticulously manicured gardens, the glow of the distant city lights and the clear starlite sky make this a perfect romantic getaway.

This was a fantastic B&B. So very peaceful. Our room was WONDERFUL and Guy couldn't have been a better host. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the company of other couples. We were there for our 51st anniversary and really enjoyed the relaxation and beauty of the grounds. Lot's to explore, Nevada City, Grass Valley, Lincoln and Newcastle. Can't get any better! Wine, beer, water and coffee available all of the time, so not to worry about missing a wine gathering in the afternoon. AND...we enjoyed watching the finals of NHRA Drag Racing on the BIG TV. SUPER...We love Sierra Sun Cloud and will return!

We stayed at the Sierra Sun Cloud Inn in the "off" season and it was the perfect place to unwind and relax. I had the best night's sleep I can remember (quiet and dark) in a long time. Guy is a wonderful host, cooked a delicious breakfast and provided detailed information about the area for our expeditions. We will go back again.

Beautiful inside and out

We were there on a Friday evening. It was wonderfully quiet. Not much going on there as there was only one other couple that evening. Owner was friendly and gave us access to the adjoining bathroom to the room even though it was not part of our room package, at no extra cost. I chose that room because the bed did not have a footboard. My husband is 6'6" so finding rooms in B&B's is tricky. It worked, though a king bed would've been ideal.

An evening in the clouds.

We had a most enjoyable evening. Guy was very hospitable, welcoming, and helpful with directions. We highly recommend the Sierra Sun Cloud Inn.

I went for a quiet get away with my partner and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! The owner, Guy, is very friendly and accommodating. There is a TV room with a huge couch, some funky DVDs, lots of channels, wine, tea, coffee, a pool table, a mini fridge, a sound system with laid back tunes, and seriously chill vibes! I highly recommend

DO NOT pass up the opportunity to stay here if you're in the area! Incredible views and peace on top of a mountain which overlooks the Sierras. A quiet, intimate and beautiful Inn with every detail of comfort provided. Wonderful, fresh gourmet breakfast to start your day as well. Guy, the host, was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. We will definately stay here again next time! Pat and Kim

Nice getaway

We truly enjoyed our quick getaway at Sierra Sun Cloud. The location was great, high up on a hill with expansive grounds making it very private and quiet. Guy is a gem of a host, very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the large guest area with the pool table and TV. Thanks again Guy!

Lovely, Relaxing stay in Gold Country

My mother and I had a wonderful time at the Sierra Sun Cloud Inn -- really beautiful spot on top of the mountain with gorgeous views and landscaping all around. Guy was a perfect host and we really felt at home. Our rooms were lovely and very clean. Only complaint would be to update the bathroom, but overall we just had a wonderful experience. Breakfast was great too!

A good night

My husband and I would have never found this place if it wasn't for my father in law. We enjoyed the quite setting in and around the bed and breakfast. The owner was very nice and personable, would do any thing to guarantee his guests a good night stay. Would return for a visit in a heart beat, but we will have to wait until we are again able to spend a weekend together.
