Emma Nevada House for Victorian Days

4.2 on December 27, 2010

Susan and Andy are wonderful hosts always willing to share helpful tips on how to make our visit to the area special!

The room was great. It was beautifully furnished and had just the feel we were hoping for. The location was so close to all the restaurants, shops and bars. The backyard and porch was also quite nice. Breakfast consisted of a fruit bowl followed by a baked delight.

Beautiful Get Away Place

We've been staying at the Emma Nevada once or twice a year for about five years. The rooms are beautiful, the house very well kept, and the breakfasts are among the best we've ever had at a B&B. The inn keepers are delightful folks who revel in helping their guests with what to see and o in this charming town. We've stayed at dozens of B&B's in the US and UK, and this place is right up there at the top.

Quiet time

4.8 on January 25, 2009

We stayed at the Emma Nevada House in Nov 2008. The town was quiet as was the B&B. The rooms were comfortable and the hosts warm. We have reccomended it to others several times.

Love this place!
