Downieville, CA   

COVID-19 Update

California’s list of required and recommended Covid-19 policies and procedures for lodging is lengthy and expensive

to implement such as waiting 24-72 hours between check-ins. Additionally, full liability has been shifted onto business owners should anyone catch the Covid-19 virus at a place of business, as per executive order by Governor Newsom,

in spite of every effort to maintain all Covid-19 protocol.

Due to pronounced business owner liability and high-priced Covid-19 policies and procedures we have decided to

keep the Riverside Inn closed for 2020 rather than substantially raise the lodging prices of our valued guests to offset our

Covid-19 cost increases. Consequently, we have cancelled all 2020 reservations and will not be accepting any

new reservations for the remainder of this year as we re-evaluate our Riverside Inn business plan. 

We apologize for this most unfortunate news and are just as disappointed as you are concerning

the negative impact that  Covid-19 is continuing to have on so many lives and businesses.

Best wishes as we all move forward during this unique and unprecedented time.
