    We have the Cabin reserved for Victorian Christmas, but it’s a ways away and we have been itching to get up to Nevada City earlier. Winning tickets to either of these events would be a huge incentive to come up. Some places you get tired of not Nevada City seems like every trip is more fun. , is the Inn full up?
