Only about a two-hour drive from San Francisco, and an hour from Sacramento, the Jackson hotel in Amador County California and the historic Gold Country welcome you to all the wonders of the Mother Lode and Sierra foothills. Located in The County Seat of Amador County, just south of Sutter Creek, the hotel enjoys Jackson's colorful history dating back over 150 years. Beginning with the Gold Rush in the mid-1800's to the growth of California's vineyards and wineries in the 1900's, Jackson California is the center of a locale rich in culture and scenic beauty. Whether it's skiing or snow boarding at Kirkwood Mountain Resort, or enjoying a game of luck at the Jackson Rancheria, the Jackson Lodge in Amador is the perfect staging place. Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary Continental Breakfast in the hotel lobby Great Room before embarking on their adventure. The Jackson Lodge's spacious rooms, cabins and cottages in the heart of the Mother Lode are also the place to relax after a fun filled day traversing the picturesque Sierra Nevada foothills.
