This morning's The Union had a front page article on hotels in Nevada County, which included the Washington Hotel. This reminded me that Mary and I had driven through the little town of Washington several times on the way to hiking trails but had never stopped there to explore. So after breakfast we set out to do just that.

Washington is off Hwy 20 between Nevada City and Hwy 80 on a winding road six miles down to the South Yuba River. Washington Road is on the left just past a vista view stop and well marked by a sign to Washington on the right. You will know you are in Washington when you see the hotel on your left -- the largest building in town.

I had to have a picture of this unique bench at the hotel entrance, bad lighting and all.


You are greeted by this when you open the bar entrance to the hotel.


The other side of the bar. They're big on signs and other stuff on the walls.


The restaurant is side-by-side to the bar.  That's the restaurant entrance to the hotel in the background.


Restaurant viewed from the entry door end.  Stuff on the walls has extended to stuff on the ceiling.
