Fodor's Expert Review Outside Inn

575 E. Broad St., Nevada City, California, 95959, USA

It looks like a typical one-story motel, but the Outside Inn offers a variety of unique accommodations inspired by nature or activities in nature (there's a climbing wall in the rock-climbing suite), in an ideal location to enjoy Northern California's four seasons. No two rooms are alike; ask about kitchenettes, full kitchens, suites, and patios, or the stand-alone cabin off-property. One room honors the town's Nevada Classic, the nation's second-oldest bike race, once won by Greg Lemond. Others pay tribute to wildflowers, river rafting, and fishing. Enjoy homespun hospitality with plenty of inspiration to get you out of the room and into nature.
