Welcome to our Victorian home that we call the Crystal Springs Inn. Built in 1890 this home was a stopping point for weary travelers heading to Sacramento and San Francisco. 128 years later the home still carries the same charm and entertains travelers from all over the world. These days they come to the Crystal Springs Inn to rest, relax and use it as a home base for their outdoor activities.
Come and stay with us any time of year and enjoy the relaxing vibe and comfortable rooms. Each guest room is named for a crystal or mineral that identifies the rooms specific energy.
Crystal Springs Inn History
The home was built in 1890 as a summer home for Sophary Ever and then converted into a hotel by the Cothrin's in 1915 to welcome weary travelers on their way to do business in San Francisco and Sacramento.
In 1929 it was sold back into the Ever family to Genevieve Lehman who was the granddaughter of the Evers. Then in 1939 it served as sort of hospital for a Dr. Cherry before it was again turned into a family home in 1948.
Finally in 1988 the home was turned into the Crystal Springs Bed and Breakfast and went through extensive repairs and a complete restoration in 1992 to turn it into the home you can experience today.
In early 2018 Jodi and Jenn decided to relocate from Los Angeles and invest in a piece of history and experience life that so many pursue but never achieve. Today they share their home with those that want to experience this Sierra gem and all the location has to offer.
