Thank you for your kind words. Yes, occasionally the traffic noise can be bothersome and yes, that is why we have ear plugs in all the rooms. We are happy to hear that that won't keep you from returning to the Albert Shafsky House B&B and beautiful El Dorado County. More

We stayed in the Vineyard room for two nights.The bed was very comfortable.Rita fixed a wonderful breakfast each morning.Short walk to downtown. So many restaurants and shops. Have Rita recommend where to have lunch or dinner. We can't wait to go back to Placerville and stay with Rita and Stephanie. Thanks again Ron & Renay

We stayed in the room with the railroad decor. Very comfortable bed. Shower had plenty of hot water. We could have used more space to put our stuff or another suitcase stand. We liked that there was no tv in room, it helped with the feeling of getting away from it all. That said, I must confess I used their... More

We just spent a perfect weekend in P'ville. Rita surpassed our expectations with the dreamy breakfast, bottle of wine at our arrival and the comfiest bed one could even imagine.

This beautifully restored historic property is owned by Stephanie and Rita, two of the nicest people you could ever meet. It's the perfect place for anyone interested in California Gold Country history. The rooms and the beds are so comfortable - it's like being a guest in someone's lovely home. Downtown Placerville is a short walk (about a mile) and... More

I enjoyed my stay at this Bed & Breakfast. The owners gave wonderful tips and shared their knowledge of the local area with me. They were personable while at the same time respecting my privacy. The breakfasts were incredible, a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy!
