Lovely, unique 1853 home just north of downtown Sacramento in the quiet Alkali Flat residential neighborhood. Only 6 blocks from the State Capitol we are within walking distance to many restaurants, theaters and other attractions like the Crocker Art Museum, Railroad Museum, Old Sacramento, Sacramento Convention Center, and more. Walk to the exciting Midtown area and get a bicycle taxi back.
Our reasonable rates and a lenient refund policy make it convenient to book and guarantee your stay. We look like a B&B but are a vacation rental that rents from overnight stays to up to 45 days.
Leave the car behind! Sacramento Airport (SMF) is 22 miles away and a typical shuttle is $35 each way, groups are less. There's a zip car station three blocks away and bicycle rentals within six blocks. If you bring your car, off-street parking here is free and there is room for an RV or trailer.
So, what is the difference between the J. Neely Johnson House and the Bidwell Mansion, Stanford Mansion and the Governor's Mansion? You can't stay at any of those others! And sadly, due to state budget woes, you may not even be able to visit them in the near future. Today you can stay at this beautiful home for as little as $99 per night.*
Check out our features and amenities. For business or pleasure, we've got everything you need while you are in Sacramento.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the J. Neely Johnson House is Sacramento’s oldest surviving residence having once been the home to several Early California elected officials; the fourth Governor, a State Treasurer and Supreme Court Justice. Restored as it may have been in the late 1890s, we are delighted to share with you a bit of 19th Century Sacramento.
All proceeds from your visits help further the restoration and maintenance of this landmark property. Currently, there are no ADA accommodations; we are planning for access in the near future. All work accomplished in the restoration and rehabilitation is in accordance with or allowed by state and local codes as well as the U.S. Secretary of the Interior Standards for Historic Preservation. This project is a previous grant recipient from the State of California Office of Historic Preservation. All current work is privately funded.
