Antique furnishings and Oriental rugs decorate the rooms of this 1857 Gothic-revival mansion, a fine option for those who appreciate the finer points of Victorian design. The building's brick exterior is trimmed with white-icicle woodwork. The hillside setting overlooks town. Red Castle features a delightful afternoon tea, by request, and morning breakfast buffet that is unparalleled among Gold Country B&Bs.

We returned to the Red Castle 20 years after we had first stayed there. It remains a charming inn with an exceptional location ... as long as you don't mind climbing the steps from town. The trees have grown up, making the place shady but a little dark. Our room had a lovely verandah. Furnishings are Victorian but comfortable, and the plumbing is modern enough. Excellent breakfast.
