The Tintic Goldminers Inn is a restored historic home located in Eureka, Utah, 20 miles west of the I-15 Santaquin exit, south of Provo. Built circa 1915 by the Chief Consolidated Mining Company, it was the home of J. Fred Johnson, mine superintendent. Renovations began in 2007 retained the original character of the home, which Fred Johnson, and his wife Lillian, would recognize today. Modern amenities were added, bringing the home up to current building standards.
Eureka is rich in mining history. The ghost towns of Dividend, Homansville, Knightsville, Mammoth and Silver City are within minutes. Many buildings along Eureka's 'ghost town' main street are currently being restored (summer 2015).
We have a Cook on staff if you purchase a meal plan (give your cooks a vacation too!), or the B&B kitchen is available with your whole house booking. We have a large common area and dining room (800 sf), 72" big screen TV and Wi-Fi. There are beds for 20, cots and mats allowing for approx 30 guests.
We love kids! We have a kid's playroom inside, doll house, and a play area in the fenced backyard. There are also board games, and a moderate selection of DVD's for everyone.

About the owner: Norman and Margaret, a retired Military couple, have chosen this quiet mountain setting in the Tintic Historic Mining District as their home. We love to share the history of Eureka and this home! Our greatest hope is for you to enter our door and immediately feel welcome and at home. We are family friendly and love children. We live on site in a basement apt, and will do all in our power to make your stay here the best ever!
Why the Owner Chose Eureka, UT, USA:
We purchased this "21-room bungalow mansion" after discovering its significance in sustaining this mining district through World War 1, the Depression, World War 2 and into the 1950's. It has been a labor of love, preserving and updating this house listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is a great place to enjoy your family reunion or retreat without the rush of everyday life. Enjoy the mountain high desert setting and expect a rural feel, quiet nights, star gazing, no traffic noise, and no cell phones (Verizon does work, if desired!). Travel back in time and visualize how you would have fit into this mining community in the early 1900's (without giving up your favorite amenities).
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Your cooks can have a break too! Meal plan available!! Call 435-433-2247 for details. Must be arranged with B&B in advance.
