History of the Yuba River inn

The Yuba River Inn was originally a piece of Gold Rush history. The Inn’s property was part of the Devine family farm in the 1800’s which supplied miners and townspeople with food. The property was purchased by the Tschopp family and was established as an inn with a swimming pool and cabin rentals. The Inn opened its doors for business in 1937. The one and only private swimming pool in Sierra City is located here. People traveled up Hwy 49 in busses for day trips and enjoyed lunch around the pool after the main building burned in the 1960’s.

Many famous news and entertainment personalities, authors, and song writers have spent time at the Inn, relishing in the solitude of the Sierras and rejuvenating their creative well-being.

Most of the original log cabins have undergone restoration and remodeling, with the exception of the main Inn building, which burned down in the 1960’s.

The Inn was purchased in 1988 by the Herzberg family who embarked on a full expansion and restoration. Today, the Inn is still owned and operated by the Hertzberg family. The vacationer will find genuine log cabins; each secluded on the forested property with private river access, restored and modernized for your family’s enjoyment.
