We spent a lovely week-end at Just An Experience, John and Carma are very hospital and make everyone feel like family. The breakfasts were fun, beautifully prepared and delicious. We would highly recommend it as a place to stay when traveling to the area. Doug and Jane

My family (2 adults and 2 children) stayed here over a weekend in August, and it was just perfect. We took one of the cabins with a loft, which gave the kids a space apart from us, and away from other guests when they got too unruly! ;) It was a good size, and have all the amenities we needed. John and Carma were the perfect hosts, and the breakfasts were great. It was nice to chat with the other guests, which was encouraged as we all sat on the back porch and enjoyed each other's company. If we get the chance to be in the area again, we will definitely stay here again! Thanks John and Carma!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights. We really enjoyed the cabin and the relaxing atmosphere of the entire place. John and Carma were outstanding hosts. By the 2nd day we felt like we were part of the family. The food was fabulous and the company of all the guests was wonderful. We will be going back for sure. It was a great experience. Thanks John and Carma! Sincerely, Gary and Carol

The owners of this B&B are spectacular hosts. The cabins are remodeled, historic cabins. Highly recommended.

My wife and I, and her family, visited this charming Bed and Breakfast last week. We rented both cabins and also a room with a private bath in the Inn. To say the least, we had a great time. The hosts were very personable and knowledgeable. The rooms were spotless and I was sorry we only had one night to spend there. We only ate breakfast even though they do offer dinner if you want it. After eating dinner in Virginia city, I recommend having dinner at the Bed & Breakfast. Their food was great. The orange juice was fresh squeezed by John and delicious. I would recommend this bed and breakfast if you are travelling to Virginia City.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Just An Experience and loved it! Carma and John are both treasures and their hospitality is unmatched. We relaxed & read in the comfy cabin, enjoyed 3 delicious meals which were graciously served and beautifully presented, explored Virginia City & Nevada City (both tranquil this time of year), took a nighttime soak in the hot tub, and did a lot of visiting with the hosts. Great fun. We plan to go back as soon as we can and bring others with us.

Ive been to Just An Experience over ten different times now. We used to go to the surrounding area to see all the history of Virginia and Nevada City and to enjoy the outdoors. Now we like to go just to visit John and Carma and get away from it all. Ive never met two more genuine people. They have taught us a lot about life. They are always willing to help and tell their awesome stories. They go out of their way to make sure everyone has the best time of their life. The food is amazing. You would think your at a 5 star restaurant. Everything is supremely clean and comfy. The scenery is great. Its very common to see local wildlife out on the lawn. In the fall you can even hear the elk bugle from the windows. Every time we come here its Just An Experience like their name says. There is no other way to put it. You do not want to miss coming here. It is the highlight of anyone's trips out to this area. Check it out and you wont be disappointed!
