Nevada County Strong

The Outside Inn recently re-opened for business after being closed to all non essential guests for 3 months.  It's been such a delight to welcome back some of our regular guests, meet new customers, and get back to work.  We haven't had the opportunity to celebrate, but this month marks the 22nd birthday of the Outside Inn.  As a family owned small business, the closures had a large impact on us, and we're working hard to move forward.
