Table Of Contents
Enjoy the Virginia City of the 1860's and enhance your visit by staying in period accommodations at Virginia City, Nevada's finest Country Inn.
Edith Palmer's Country Inn was established in a Victorian home built in 1863. Originally, the home and a rock building to the rear were used as a cider factory. Edith Palmer, a renowned cook and innkeeper, started the Inn after she bought the property in 1948.
In the year 2000, current owners Pat and Leisa Findley began reconstructing and rejuvenating the Inn. Reopening in June of 2003, the Inn along with the rock room which is now, appropriately, the Cider Factory Restaurant are joined by the two adjacent Victorian Houses to complete the property.
"The views of the canyon and the sunrises were terrific! Our only regret is that we have to leave."
Weddings in the Garden
An avid gardener, Edith Palmer established a tranquil setting for her visitors. In fact, she was in her garden when she first made the acquaintance of Marilyn Monroe. She stayed at the Inn while filming of The Misfits in nearby Dayton. Paths meander throughout the gardens In the courtyard, one stump which has sprouted new growth is extremely old. The stray cats used to have their kittens inside its hollowed out shell until the activity level nearby became too much. There are several more old trees and shrubs in the gardens as well. Rock terraces lead the visitor up the hillsides to fantastic views of the surrounding area and overlooking the canyon eastward to the "100 Mile View".
Edith Palmer's Country Inn is a perfect location for Weddings and Receptions, Anniversary, Engagement, Graduation, and Birthday Parties, Family Reunions and Get-togethers, or any other special occasion.
Dining at The Cider Factory
The Cider Factory Restaurant continues the tradition of fine dining in an intimate setting. Originally built in 1863 as a cider factory, the sign for the factory can still be read on the huge metal door of the restaurant. A very unique fireplace made with stones collected from the surrounding hills keeps the chill away in cooler weather. Enjoy breakfast or lunch in our casual dining area, where morning sun streams through the two double-doors facing east. When weather permits, you can choose to dine on the stone patio in the courtyard, enjoying the fresh air and the great views of Sun Mountain and Six-Mile Canyon.
