Sierra City: The Buttes Resort; hotel review

cabin at The Buttes Resort in Sierra City, California
Highway 49--Gold Rush Country

The Buttes Resort  

230 Main St., (800) 991-1170, (530) 862-1170.  11 units (8 cabins + 3 attached rooms).  Most have kitchens & gas fireplaces.  Closed Dec-Mar.  No pets. 

Featuring a woodsy exterior reminiscent of a Swiss chalet, with fence cutouts in the shape of hearts, triangles, and crosses, the vintage cabins at The Buttes Resort are popular with hikers and fishermen.  Reception and lobby are in a cozy lodge room with a pool table, where shelves are filled with books, DVDs, and games that guests can borrow.  Guests also have access to a free fish-cleaning station, plus a good view of the river below and the buttes above is provided from a large communal deck with tables and chairs, barbecue facilities, and lounge chairs.  Located on a bluff high above the river, this lodging is within an easy walk of several restaurants and bars (the town is only a few blocks long).  Mountain water here is good right out of the tap, and a nearby trail leads down to the river for sunbathing and swimming.  Rooms 9 and 10 have a small private deck with dining table and chairs plus two chairs for relaxing in while looking across at the tree-covered Sierra mountains and listening to the river below.  Rooms 4, 7, and 9 have a view of the river.  All rooms have a similar attractive decor that includes walls partially lined in knotty pine, tweed-carpeted floors, and Venetian blinds.  Room 9 has a claw-foot soaking tub and 12 has a whirlpool tub.
