The Buttes Resort is the definition of tranquility as it's located below the Sierra Buttes and overlooking the majestic N. Yuba River in the historic gold rush township of Sierra City.  The resort has been providing wonderful accommodations to their guests since the 1950's.  Over the decades it has had some advances and updates, but one thing has always remained constant, "Excellence".

The resort has recently been purchased by Jim Westfall.  Jim fell in love with the place last year and this year he decided to purchase it.  His background is in mining, but he's made a commitment to keep the history of high standards moving forward in this new chapter of his life.  He's starting off on this journey with a couple of new things like staying open year round so guests can enjoy all four seasons and a brand new website that is really impressive full of great information about the area.

At the resort the N. Yuba River is just one of the attractions, but it's a great one.  Fishing, swimming, kayaking, and tubing are just some of the things that the N. Yuba River and the Buttes Resort has to offer its guests.

After a wonderful day of exploring the Tahoe National Forest with all of its outdoor recreational opportunities available you get to come back and enjoy your base camp at the Buttes Resort.  The resort offers 7 cabins with full kitchens and it has three rooms as well to suit everyone's desires.

You can also sit back and relax in the outdoor patio area listening to the soothing sounds of the N. Yuba River and the blue jays in the trees.

Sierra City is also home to the Kentucky Mine and Museum.  At the mine you can take a tour or go to one of the terrific Music at the Mine Summer Concerts.  It's amazing to see the inner workings of the stamp mill and to think about what life must have been like in the 1850's.

There is one more amazing place to consider visiting during your stay at the Buttes Resort, the local swimming hole, Sand Pond.  It's fantastic and is just a few minutes away by car in the Lakes Basin.

Since the resort is now open year round, don't forget about all the beautiful fall colors and winter activities that are available like snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and just plain ole good fun in the snow making snow angels.  

If you're looking for that trip to enjoy the Tahoe National Forest and stay in comfort surrounded by beautiful scenery, you can't go wrong choosing the Buttes Resort.  It truly is a Slice of Heaven in Sierra County!
