We've been looking for an old house to stay in for a vacation rental, something built in the 1800s or early 1900s, and we found the Two Room Inn in Nevada City. It was built in 1880, and it is right on Broad Street, which was the main street of Nevada City back in the day. It is also right near the filming locations of a Hallmark movie called 'The Christmas Card', so we wanted to find all those places.

Nevada City - Two Room Inn
There were lots of vintage lamps all through the house.
The very narrow stairway with stained glass windows.
The one room upstairs, with a window/door to a small balcony that looks over Broad Street.
Who are these people? We don't know and wish there would have been some information
about the house and its history, original and previous owners, etc.
All the fixtures and furniture were chosen to look old fashioned.
The front porch overlooking Broad Street.
There wasn't any info about this particular house, but there was a cool book full
of old pictures of the Grass Valley, Nevada City and Downieville areas.
How the house looked at night.
We walked around on Broad Street and side streets - it was definitely the quintessential
small town America with lots of old storefronts and well-preserved old homes.
This intersection is actually a filming location
for The Christmas Card movie - it's where they had a small tree lot.
It would have been behind the grey vehicle on the left, in front of the brick building.
