In this semi-weekly series, we scour the world in search of the most weird and wonderful hotels. From cave hotels to converted prisons, capsule pods to underwater guestrooms, you can expect only the unexpected. This week, go back in time at the Nevada City Hotel.
What’s the gimmick? Located just one mile west of Virginia City, the Nevada City Hotel began life as a stage stop in the 1860s. Today, the stage station is the front portion of the hotel, while the back is comprised of buildings from Yellowstone Park.
Why stay? The hotel itself is a two-story log cabin with a sitting parlour and cowboy-style saloon in the main lobby with a full espresso bar. Period antiques and knotty pine emphasise the western décor, creating the feeling of stepping back in time. Stay here to immerse yourself in late 1800s cowboy land – you’re sure to have a rootin’ tootin’ good time.
The Wow Factor: There are 10 guest rooms in the cabin, but for a little more cash, guests can stay in one of the authentic Victorian suites, which feature 1860s Victorian antiques, polished burlwood furniture, balconies and private baths.
