"The views of the canyon and the sunrises were terrific! Our only regret is that we have to leave." A Former Guest Enjoy the Virginia City of the Late 1800's. Enhance your visit by staying in period accommodations at Virginia City's finest and oldest Country Inn. Edith Palmer's Country Inn was established in a Victorian home built in 1863, before Nevada began a state. Edith Palmer, an internationally renowned chef, started the Inn after she bought the property in 1948. In the year 2000, current owners Pat and Leisa Findley began to return the Inn to it's original floor plan. This lead to the discovery of the original use of the rock room to the rear of the property, an 1863 Cider Factory. These two buildings are joined by two adjacent Victorian Houses to complete the property. An additional 1870's house will soon become part of the inn.
This room upstairs has a queen bed and private bath. Furnished with antiques, you get a feel for life in the past. The view is extraordinary and this why guests come again and again. The outdoors is as peaceful as your room since the Inn has few neighbors. Access to the outside areas is down the stairs and out the door where you can sit on the porch and watch the world go by just like they did in the 1800's. Or, find a spot in the one of the gardens or patios to sit and read, enjoy the birds and wildlife, or take a nap. Nights are unusually clear for star watching in this quiet setting.
Nightly Rate: $135/$135
This downstairs room has a queen bed and a private bath. A sitting and reading area in a bay window makes the room seem like part of the outdoors. The room is furnished with antiques which give the feeling of staying in the house in the 1800's. This is probably the most private of all the rooms since it can only be entered through the areas of the Inn not always accessible to all the guests. The gardens and patios are only a few steps away and offer places to read, watch bird and wildlife, or eat a lunch you brought back from town. The clear night skies make stargazing amazing.
Nightly Rate: $125/$125

When we arrived our hostess was waiting for us. She checked us in and showed us around. At breakfast we she served a fantstic meal. While we ate, we talked about what we wanted to do while we were in Virginia City. We asked our hostess for things to see and do and she made a few reccomendations. While we sat there she gave us a little history of the city, places to go things to see and where the goasts were. Aperantly there is a little girl goast in a blue dress that shows up every once in a while. As we explored the town we constantly kept an eye out for the little girl in the blue dress. We had a geat time thanks to our host. We look forward to visiting Virginia City again and staying at Eidth Palmer's Country Inn.

Great place to spend a couple of nights. Leisa keep us entertained during our gourmet breakfast with information on the town of Virgina City.The B&B was located in a perfect spot with great views from our windows(James Flood Room), at the end of the street and very quiet. The rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. This was our first stay at a B&B we will be sure to visit this B&B again and will try out some others due to our experience at Edith palmer's Country Inn.
