Their daughter, Gertrude, lived in the house most of her life and contributed to political and civic causes in the state as well as in Amador County. This home became the Sutter Creek Inn, opening with its unique hospitality in May 1967. Each morning a hot breakfast is served in the large kitchen in front of the fireplace. During the summer, long breakfast tables are set outside under the grape arbor. The Inn has an intimate atmosphere for discriminating guests. 75 Main Street; 209-267-5606
