Discover Scott Valley and The Historic Collier Hotel

This lovingly restored 19th century rooming house in beautiful Scott Valley is full of authentic touches and memorable spaces. With high wood beam ceilings, huge suites, and a large fenced yard, it makes the perfect retreat for exploring the natural beauty of the Marble Mountains, Scott and Klamath River watersheds, Russian Wilderness, Trinity Alps, and Pacific Crest trail. Situated just off HWY 3 and only a 30 minute drive from Interstate 5, the mountain valley hamlet of Etna, CA provides peace, quiet, unbelievable natural beauty, and a moderate, four seasons climate. Located less than a block away from a cafe, grocery store, and full playground, the hotel also boasts several quality restaurants, the Etna Brewery, a lovely main street, a full service post office, a picturesque city park, and (in the summer) a large city pool, all less than a quarter mile walk from the hotel entrance.

The Collier Hotel started life in 1897 as a rooming house and had a variety of uses over the years before the current owners, Rich and Ali Cloutman, purchased the property in 1998 and renovated it to use as a personal residence for their young family. After many years of wonderful family memories at the hotel, they moved residences and turned the old hotel into a vacation rental. Recently, Asa and Samantha Robinson, who reside a few houses away from the hotel with their young son, have taken over the management of the hotel and they strive to ensure that every guest need is promptly addressed.

Although its reasonable rates make the hotel a cost effective choice for individuals and families, the hotel is also suitable for even larger groups. There are beds for 12, but at 3600 square feet, the house can easily accommodate more guests by arrangement. The large landscaped yard, open dining area and kitchen, and multi-level wrap around porches make an ideal location for hosting events, small weddings, and family reunions (by arrangement). For even larger events, the park nearby is well maintained and includes an excellent large pit BBQ, covered eating area, and a large number of movable picnic tables, making serving 100+ people a breeze. Reservations at the park can be made for a reasonable fee, and we can assist with that as well as obtaining local catering, entertainment, photography, etc. as needed.
