We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Buttes over New Years weekend. Jim, the owner, was again very helpful and accommodating. He had updated his website to let guests know in advance what was open and closed in the area during the winter and we planned ahead by taking plenty of food and drink with us. We...

It is a perfect location for staying before or after hiking any of the great hiking trails like the Sierra Buttes overlook. We were there in the off season so not a lot of open restaurants nearby. However the friendly and informative proprietor (Jim) advised us to bring food, BBQ and eat in as (I believe ) ALL UNITS have...

This is a great place to explore an unexplored part of California. Very centrally located to great hiking and bird watching (Yuba Pass and Sierra Valley). We did the Round Lake and Sierra Buttes trail and both are excellent day hikes (get used to the altitude before doing the Buttes). The rooms are comfortable, beds good and Jim is a...

We stayed in Room 1, which has its own parking space. The mattress is really firm and great to sleep on. The patio next to room 7 is exceptional with a great view to the river below, and just a great place to relax or visit with friends and the new owner. Jim is most helpful for anything you may...

The 49niner Highway wends it's way through the spectacular California Sierra. The views are spectacular! A must place to see and stay, Sierra City. And, THE place to stay while in the bustling town, population 300 or so, is The Buttes Resort. Great rooms: impeccably clean; great views and the sound of the roaring North Yuba River. You can always...

We stumbled upon this great place coming of the Pacific Crest Trail, looking for any place to stay - and what a pleasant find it turned out to be! We were in room 11 (they all are slightly different) with a deck in the back facing the Yuba River, a big bathroom, fridge, TV/DVD, coffee maker & toaster. The room...
