A Bed & Breakfast Inn
5006 Main Street
in historic Coulterville, California
at the junctions of State Highways 132 & 49
As you have learned, this is a historic building--built in the last century. The upstairs was originally the residence of the Warne family. It now shares its authentic Mother Lode atmosphere with visitors from all over the world: many on their way to or returning from Yosemite National Park, and others touring our historic Gold Country.
The building may be historic but, rest assured, it has been fully restored. Guests here have their own private entrance to the Sherlock Holmes. That means you can keep your own hours and don't have to worry about waking anyone up to get inside. Our tour begins here:
You walk in the front door and you'll see the spacious rooms including dining quarters. You're sure to be here at least twice a day. In the morning, when Mary Sherlock serves up her famous Welsh Gold Miners' Pasties. Imagine, if you will, a breakfast omelette in a tender pie crust and smothered in rich cheddar cheese. Serve that with some homemade breakfast breads and gigantic warm-from-the-oven muffins and fresh-brewed coffee and orange juice and you'll want to plan your next trip to Sherlock Holmes...just for the breakfast! Meanwhile, 5 in the afternoon is a pretty good time to be close to "Holmes" too. That's when Mary hosts "happy hour" featuring famous local wines and gourmet cheeses. Somehow, we don't think folks had it this good in the old days!
Sherlock Holmes is in the heart of historic Coulterville. You're within easy walking distance to a great museum, an old cemetery, restaurants and shopping, an authentic wild west saloon, an equally authentic Chinatown and, lest we forget, some great gold panning. (You can get your gold pans downstairs.) It's enough to keep a family busy for hours. It's also proof positive that little Coulterville is the old west's best kept secret!
We almost forgot to mention the Sherlock Holme's game room--a perfect place to play cards or any number of board games. And you do know what board game is the most popular here, don't you? It's Clue.
After dinner, guests enjoy Mary's homemade dessert buffet.
Meanwhile, other than her famous Welsh Gold Miners Pasties, we invite you to check out what Mary Sherlock is most proud of at the B&B...the wonderful rooms. For this next segment of your guided tour, please click here.
