Scotia Inn interior photos


Many visitors to the Town of Scotia are in the area to see California's giant Redwoods and to enjoy the scenery.  When they get to Scotia they fall in love with the 19th century charm, the authentic architecture, the unsoiled beauty and sense of history, like a step back in time.  The New York Times described it this way:  "Nestled into a wooded hillside off Highway 101, about 250 miles north of San Francisco, Scotia is both immaculate and surreal, equal parts Mayberry and Twin Peaks.

Visitors will not want to miss the Scotia Museum which was upgraded in 2004 with three-dimensional displays, additional artifacts, videos and interactive technology, offering a personal tour of forestry management and the Town of Scotia over the years.
