The Yuba River Inn

Ever been here ?      Earlier this month I did a post called "Vacation Much"  which was all about getting out there and enjoying your life this summer... Particularly up in the beautiful Gold Lakes basin  mountains of Sierra City ... I also mentioned how money is tight this year and we were gonna do our best to get up there later in the year ... Well it pleases me greatly to share that next week we are unexpectedly headed up to the Yuba River inn @ Sierra City  for a week !   The Yuba River Inn was originally a piece of Gold Rush history. The Inn’s property was part of the Devine family farm in the 1800’s which supplied miners and townspeople with food. The property was purchased by the Tschopp family and was established as an inn with a swimming pool and cabin rentals. The Inn opened its doors for business in 1937. The one and only private swimming pool in Sierra City is located here. People traveled up Hwy 49 in busses for day trips and enjoyed lunch around the pool after the main building burned in the 1960’s.
Many famous news and entertainment personalities, authors, and song writers have spent time at the Inn, relishing in the solitude of the Sierras and rejuvenating their creative well-being.
Most of the original log cabins have undergone restoration and remodeling, with the exception of the main Inn building, which burned down in the 1960’s.   Needless to say , I will definitely be posting lots of pictures of the area as well as some hiking stories and hopefully some unique wildlife footage also ...The last time I stayed here I had a big bear right on my porch one night and another evening there was a beautiful Grey fox at the back sliding glass door ... So , I am hopeful to get some more great animal pictures for you !
