Whether for business or pleasure… The Golden Chain Motel is a quiet, restful place to stay. Located in the Ponderosa Pines at 2400 feet above sea level, we are above the fog and below heavy snows, and only 2.5 miles South of Grass Valley.
This is the great Mother Lode Country, strung along the western slope of the Sierra. The Golden Chain Grass Valley Motel is only an hour from Sacramento, and 1.5 hours from Lake Tahoe.
There are many points of interest in the area, including: The legendary Empire, North Star, and Idaho-Maryland gold mines. Nearby is the Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park, which is the largest hydraulic mine in California.
Nearby Grass Valley and Nevada City provide interesting additional lure, with their historic churches, antique shops, stores, art shops, and Victorian homes. Visit Ott’s Assay Office and the Firehouse Museum, the Lola Montez Home and dozens of fine restaurants.
