History of the Yuba River
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.
