About David Overly

That's us, Dave & Sheri, on the right with our daughters, son-in-law and grandson.

David Overly purchased this estate in 1997

Why David Overly chose Trinity Center

Years of family vacations evidenced our love of Trinity County for it's pristine wilderness and recreational opportunities. We were immediately captivated by Carrville's grandeur, charm and setting. We quickly developed a strong connection with Carrville's compelling history as a stage stop and part of the California gold rush.

What makes this estate unique

A stay at Carrville is truly a transforming experience. You'll know the magic of being surrounded by more wildlife than people, more mountains than buildings, more views than stoplights.

This home is so very awesome with beautiful comfy bedrooms and livingroom with big screen TV and the kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with everything! We had our family reunion with 13 people but easily accommodates 20. The hugh patio, bbq and 6 person spa were fabulous! Very comfy patio furniture and fire pit was a big hit. Very close to many fun activities. We definitely recommend this property and will be back next summer. Thank you Bob for sharing the Bunker we had a terrific time!!

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding here and it was PERFECT! The grounds are so beautiful we had lots of compliments on the location. Dave was great throughout the whole planning process and during our stay. He was willing to try to accomodate all of my (sometimes extraordinary) requests, and was very easy to communicate with. The caterer was over the moon with their fantastic commercial kitchen and large dining room. We had a great time and hope to come back in the near future!!

Wedding weekend at the Carrville Inn

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Inn for three nights and fell in love with it! It was quiet, comfortable, immaculate and surrounded by beauty. The bedrooms were charming and comfortable. We want to return for a family reunion in the near future. It it a perfect spot for large gatherings and those who enjoy clean mountain air and beautiful surroundings.

We held the rehearsal dinner outside on the lawn and it was the perfect setting. You won't be disappointed if you plan an event there. I failed to mention that the kitchen is amazing too. Fully stocked with every possible thing you could want or need.

Our stay with our very large family reunion was exceptional, beyond our expectations. The Inn was absolutely beautiful, the rooms divine,the grounds gorgeous, the commercial kitchen a real WOW! Our family is comprised of many gourmet chefs and they were in heaven - and so were we as recipients of such lovely meals! Gathering fresh eggs every morning (5 dozen) fed our entire group. We picked bowls of fresh blackberries and apples and made two huge pans of freshly baked cobbler - a five star. I must say the amenities surpassed any 5-star resort or hotel. One must experience all of this to know the difference of bare essentials and lushness. We have already booked our stay for next year. There was a 28 thumbs-up vote of YES to return and we can't wait for next reunion. Dave and Sheri are most wonderful. The are great hosts who were there for anything and everything we needed. One word for the Carrville Inn - magical.
