This was our second stay at the Shafsky House. Rita & Stephanie are delightful, helpful but not overbearing, and simply nice people. We were greeted with our choice of wine and left to enjoy the living room. While we did not need assistance for dinner, they were eager to assist. The Vineyard Room is large and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding... More

We spent one night at the Albert Shafsky House B&B in Placerville, CA and we'll be back again. The innkeepers, Rita & Stephanie, were very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The bed in the Vineyard room was exceptionally comfortable and the room and beautiful Victorian home are decorated very nicely. And the breakfast Rita made was SUPER delicious.

The B & B is a quaint Victorian home with lots of wonderful antiques and decorations. The host, Rita, was very welcoming and fun. The six of us were able to visit and have a complimentary glass of wine in the living room. The sheets on the bed were very unique and comfortable! We'd love to stay there again and... More

We've stayed at The Shafsky House many times, and each time has been excellent. Rita and Stephanie are wonderful hosts, and Rita's breakfasts are the best anywhere. Whenever we go wine tasting in the El Dorado or Amador wine areas, we always stay at The Shafsky House - it's near dozens of wineries, it's a short walk to downtown Placerville,... More

It is always a pleasure to see the smiling faces of our return guests. Catching up on the happenings since the last time you were here is half the fun. The other half is hearing about what is to happen in the future. Thanks so much for your kind words about your stay and know that you are always welcome.... More

My husband and I love to visit the Eldorado county wine country and have been looking for a place to stay while we're visiting. We recently found the perfect place: Albert Shafsky House. It's within walking distance of Placerville's fun and friendly downtown; offers clean, comfortable, charmingly decorated rooms; has room in its spacious entry for case loads of wine;... More

We were staying in Placerville for a family wedding. We couldn't possibly have stayed in a better location! This house is so well situated close to town and close to the Sequoia Mansion where the wedding was held. Check in time was 4:00 but a phone call later we were met with a cheerful smile and allowed to check in... More

On a business trip to El Dorado County and a friend suggested I stay at the Shafsky house instead of the usual Holiday Inn Express. Such a nice change - and a great escape from the routine and ordinary, run of the mill hotel/motel. Rita and Stephanie were extraordinary hosts and the accomodations and breakfasts were exceptional as well. Ask... More

The entire week was filled with "business guests" all of whom were presenting at the same site. It was a joy to have you, and the others, stay with us. Lots of laughter and good cheer. Note that the Suite does have a different rate for non-business guests. Hope to see you again the next time you visit beautiful El... More

The Albert Shafsky House B&B was just what we were looking for when we traveled to Placerville this year. Comfortable old-world elegance, with a warm welcome from proprietor Rita, who cooked up a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, banana walnut muffins, and french toast stuffed with brie cheese and served with fresh berry preserves. We slept like babies on the... More

We stayed at Albert Shafsky B&B from Friday Aug 1 to Sunday Aug 3. Yummy breakfasts. So peaceful & quiet even though the house sits on a busy street. Love the sheets and the bed. Innkeepers were nice as well as Lily the pup.

We always enjoy getting feedback from our guests. Happy to hear you had a good time not only at the B&B but in beautiful El Dorado County. The sheets, well yes, they are "comphy" and many past guests now have them at home. Hope to see you again. More

We booked a quick trip to gold country on a whim and are so happy we landed in Rita's living room. The house is beautifully kept and Rita's warm and welcoming way made us feel instantly at home.
