We so look forward to our stays at this unique and charming B&B. Besides the well-appointed cottages, each with its own sweet personality, garden setting, and both individual and shared patio seating arrangements, the owner, Lindsay, couldn't do enough for us. The lovely little cottages contained many amenities thoughtfully placed to ensure comfort and delight the eye. An artist who works in clay sculptures, Lindsay is well rounded and informed, openly engaging in on just about any topic you wish to discuss. In the mellow breeze of a lovely afternoon under an umbrella on the well-groomed lawn, we shared an unhurried conversation on the area's history and recent events. We brought out appetizers and Lindsay provided crackers as we chatted until dinnertime. When Lindsay learned of our mutual friends in Sutter Creek, she graciously invited them at her own cost to a sumptuous breakfast in the morning. After dinner at Teresa's Place on Jackson Gate Road, we returned and found Lindsay still willing to assist with details of where we could listen to music or engage in other activities. When we appeared undecided, she offered her own dance floor, taking us into a converted barn and playing music so we could dance until ready for a peaceful sleep. In the morning we shared a delectable breakfast of gourmet omelettes, meat, fresh cut fruit, juice, and biscuits with homemade jam. We sat together, old friends in their 90's, parents in their mid-80's, to teenagers, my relatives and hers, reflecting on what a lovely time we'd enjoyed in this town I'd lived in from the ages of 3 to 12. After breakfast, we strolled the many brick walkways of the gardens between and among the cottages, admiring foxglove, calendula, lavender, and so many other plants of bright color and wafting fragrance. How we hated to have to depart.

We stayed at the Sutter Creek Inn during the week of June 14, 2010. We loved it! We chose the Woodshed Room, which was very comfortable. This room, however, does not have a bathtub, so if you need a room with one, you would want to chose one of their other rooms. The only other thing I thought was missing was a hairdryer, that would have been nice. The grounds of this property are lovely, and there is ample room to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Sutter Creek is quaint little town with cute little boutiques and shops. We really enjoyed Susan's, a restaurant and wine bar, as well as the Sutter Creek Cheese Shop where you can partake in cheese tastings. Service at the Inn was great and breakfast the next morning was delicious. We would definitely return to this property if we found ourselves in Sutter Creek again.
