Peaceful place located above town. Beautiful views, lots of nooks to enjoy the out door terraces and water features while escaping the world. We stayed in the Zinfandel room and hardly knew the inn was booked solid. Breakfast every morning was delicious. From fresh fruit, chicken sausages, eggs to pancakes, bacon and fresh fruit, to a traditional Swedish potato with...

It makes it so worth while when guests as yourself appreciate all the work that has gone in to create a beautiful room like the Merlot or any of the other rooms. The gardens are now almost finished and it's only been 11 years. ;-)

The Barretta Garden Inn is truly a hidden jewel in the California Mother Lode Gold Country. We had a wonderful experience in the Zinfandel Room, with a feather bed, gourmet breakfast, and enchanting grounds, including a newly renovated, half-acre garden and pond delight!
