My wife and I visited Elke and Rowdy (Boston Terrier) for two days while we were in the area visiting others. Nothing but true hospitality, friendliness and sincerity. Breakfast was very healthy and hearty. The property was spectacular with a view of an immaculately clean horse stable. No disturbing noise radiates from this. The horses are fun to watch. The...

If your looking for a relaxing, quiet experience then this is your place to stay. Close to auburn, 30 min to red hawk casino the location is perfect. And... More

We stayed here for the weekend and we just loved this charming, private, and truly enchanted b&b inn. Hidden in the hills East of Folsom Lake, close to many wineries, this inn is very well kept and provides excellent value for the money. The inn is on a very large property, so it's extremely quiet and private. The host, Elke,... More

I feel so lucky to have found the Enchanted April Inn. Everything was spectacular. We loved our room, the bed was very comfortable and the sheets were amazing. Elke was such a wonderful hostess and the breakfast was the best breakfast we've had in a long time. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a great... More

A true gem in the midst of California's gold country. I'm not a big B&B guy, in fact, this was the first one I'd ever been to. But the tranquility made our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. It was just what we needed and incredibly peaceful. The grounds were exquisite, our host, Elke, was wonderfully hospitable and her food was... More

What a wonderful find! My husband and I went fir a weekend getaway with no plans to do anything but relax. Mission accomplished! Other than a quick trip to Coloma, we pretty much stayed on the property. Relaxed by the pond, swung on the porch swing overlooking the stables, relaxed by the vineyard, relaxed some more by the fire pit.... More

We so enjoyed our one night stay with Elke and the beautiful surroundings of Enchanted April. Indeed April is the perfect time for a visit to this beautiful historic area. We visited Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park before staying at Enchanted April. Upon telling Elke that we found all the local wineries closed on Monday, she presented us with... More

We recently visited with 3 other couples for a weekend that was graciously donated by Elke for a local charity silent auction. Even though she was not making much money that weekend we were treated to a great time. Loved sitting with our coffee in the morning and visiting with our host. The food was great and the company better.... More

Elke and her dog Rowdy greeted us for our 2-night stay at her inn! The B&B was one of the best we've been to. The house and grounds were absolutely beautiful. But what made our stay most memorable was Elke. She was a great tour guide and showed us spots we wouldn't have found on our own. In addition, Elke... More
