This Gold Country Inn was built at the turn of the 19th century by Albert L. Kleinecke, an executive for Standard Lumber Co., on a steep hillside overlooking the gold rush town of Sonora. It has been lovingly restored to its historic ambiance and is one the most well-known bed and breakfast inns in the southern Gold Country.
Although located only a 10-minute walk to the center of Sonora, the richly landscaped gardens gives guests the feel of staying in the middle of a beautiful park.
