A Tribute to a Bygone Hotel… from a bygone era.
Hotel Jeffery was a traditional gold country hotel, in Coulterville, California, which was built in 1851, and the building still retains its historic charm. The hotel, which had been running until fairly recently, has now permanently closed.

Nestled in the foothills of the Majestic Sierras near Yosemite stands a bit of history…the Hotel Jeffery in Coulterville, California. Built in 1851 for stagecoach passengers on their way to Yosemite, the Hotel Jeffery has hosted gold miners, Presidents, gun fighters and adventurers from every continent.
Today, the Hotel Jeffery offers the same historic hospitality and warmth that made it famous those many years ago. Newly restored to its original charm and beauty, Hotel Jeffery offers the perfect setting to while away the hours enjoying the historic gold rush town of Coulterville or to use as a base camp for nearby day expeditions into the celebrated Gold Country and Yosemite.Hotel Jeffery information in YosemiteGold.com
