Other things to note

Completed in December 1875, the Henry Piper House, now known as the "B" Street House Bed and Breakfast, reflects the accomplishments of local businessman and politician Henry Piper. Henry immigrated to Virginia City in 1860 with his older brother, John, to establish a saloon and then the Opera House, which became famous world wide for offering the very best in talent to the booming mining community.

Virginia City developed after the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the richest silver ore ever found up to that time. Millionaires were made overnight on mining stock speculation and by way of providing services to the local miners. Henry Piper partnered in running the saloon and Opera House and became a millionaire businessman and politician, establishing this lovely Victorian home on Millionaires' Row. Henry served as a city alderman and city treasurer, and spent one session in the Nevada Legislature as an assemblyman. He continued his behind-the-scenes political career as a member of the Republican Central Committee during the 1870s and was a member of several local fraternal organizations.

Virginia City is one of the largest historic districts in the United States. And since 2011, the Henry Piper House has its own individual place on the National Register of Historic Places based on its unique architecture (row house) and association with Henry Piper.

Purchased in total disrepair by the previous owners in 2004, the house underwent a complete restoration to open as a bed and breakfast in 2007. The restoration was completed under the guidelines of the Department of the Interior and received a Nevada State Historic Preservation Office award in 2008.

This house itself is a wonderful place to take a look, not to mention it's only 1 min walk to the lively B street. Virginia city is amazing, deers come to the downtown to enjoy nightlife.... BTW, Sara is the most enthusiastic host I meet in airbnb so far.

The host was so very lovely and charming, the breakfast was fantastic, and the entire house was gorgeous! The room (San Davis) was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again, and will tell our friends coming to VC to do the same!

Words can't describe how amazing Saralyn and the B Street Victorian are! My fiancé and I stayed in the Sam Davis room and both my coworkers stayed in the other 2 rooms. Each room was an absolute delight. The historic significance, value for a Bed and Breakfast and amazing host make this a stellar not-to-be/missed opportunity.

We loved staying in the historic building, and Saralyn in an incredible hostess. She knows exactly the right touches to make the stay comfortable. It was a quiet, restful sleep, as the building is quiet and sound. We can't speak highly enough of this hidden gem! The fact that you're staying in Virginia City is an added bonus.

Home away from home. Third time at the B Street B&B and planning to go back again soon. Love the Town, the Inn and Saralyn and her son Leo. Thanks for making it each time so special and memorable.

This is a beautiful space! Authenticity everywhere. We loved looking at all the furniture, books, and pictures. Breakfast was especially nice, served with silver and crystal, in the style of the day. Saralyn is the perfect hostess, serving a delicious breakfast and very helpful with information and suggestions. We highly recommend staying here!!

We stayed in the large and comfortable Sam Davis room, which fronts a quiet street with views of the town one block below and the great basin expanse in the distance. Breakfast was homemade, creative and delicious, and our host graciously accommodated our special needs. Couldn't have had a better stay. And for the history buff, Virginia City is one of the best preserved 19th century towns we have ever seen.
