Visit Amador, California



While California generally brings to mind thoughts of beaches, waves, and hot summer days, wintertime can have its day in the sun as well! Visiting Amador County during the cooler months can be quite enjoyable and entertaining. And staying at our conveniently located Inn can make it even more so. We offer 10 beautiful acres nestled inside the El Dorado National Forest, and we also welcome your four-legged family member (we even have a dog run for your convenience). From shopping to skiing to gambling to gold mining — there’s something for everyone, even if the days are getting shorter and the temperature is dropping.

Kirkwood Mountain

If winter hikes and ski slopes are what you’re interested in, you won’t want to miss this place. Now you can stay less than an hour away from hours of winter fun. Located less than 50 miles from our Inn, you can enjoy all of the attractions offered at Kirkwood while not having to stay and fight all the traffic.

Jackson Rancheria Casino

Play some cards, maybe a few rounds at the slots, have some dinner, and enjoy a show — all under one roof. Here you’ll find card tables, game tables, and over 1,700 slot and video machines. No luck needed to have a great time at Jackson Rancheria Casino.

Entertainment for the Seasons

In Amador County, you can get your nails done, go for a new hair-do, and do some antique shopping. Want to get in the Halloween spirit? Check out the cemetery ghost hunt. You can also pan for gold at Black Chasm Cavern. So much to do, so little time!
