Sierraville, although appearing at first like a quiet rural village, is actually the hub of a lot of action. Recreation in the Sierras is a main attraction, but so much more goes on here.  If you are an artist or an adventurer, either with paint, a camera, or a pair of skis you will be inspired.  You might be staying a day or two on your long motorcycle journey, taking in the Sierra Hot Springs, or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery.  The Valley House is where you want to be.


Go up and down mountains for miles. Or take a nice quiet walk. Either way, you will find yourself in a pristine Sierra setting, with a perfect Alpine lake to jump into and a big old tree to close your eyes under. 

Hot Springs

The Valley House is minutes away from the Sierra Hot Springs Resort, an all-season natural hot springs in a serene setting. It offers yoga, spa treatments and massage. Clothing optional.
