My girlfriend and I arrived later than expected. It was the 4th of July weekend. We had stopped to see fireworks at the county fair in Hayfork. Brian and Jeanne were waiting up for us on the porch. They were charming and welcomed us as if we were in their home. Our room was lovely and had the comfort we needed after a long drive on the scenic mountain roads. The next morning we walked along the street and checked out the many art and antique shops and the local history museum and the Chinese Joss House. Weaverville was full of history and it was all decked out for the 4th of July. Flags and bunting was everywhere and events were happening all weekend. We mingled with the locals who treated us as neighbors. We enjoyed breakfast at Noelle's Garden Cafe and dinner at La Grange. My girlfriend found some nice gifts in the hotel shop and then we played games in the parlour looking out on main street. I felt like I had gone back to a more relaxed time. I would like to have stayed more than two days.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel, originally built in 1861, was last rebuilt in 1880 after burning to the ground. We have painstakingly restored it to the original high ceilings and wood floors, attempting to recapture as much of the original charm as possible. Private bath with shower in all rooms, most also have claw-foot tubs with bubble bath. All rooms are air conditioned with ceiling fans; most also have gas log fireplaces, a welcome feature during our colder months. Prime retail therapy is to be had in our great little Emporium downstairs where everything from sterling silver jewelry to women's clothing to great gift items can be found. The emporium is open every day, 9am till 6pm except Sundays, 10am-6pm. That's every day of the year! ... more less
