The hosts were wonderful, breakfast was delicious, Rita even made a special effort to make me a delicious vegan breakfast. They had a wonderful set of enchanted Time Life books that my daughter enjoyed!

My husband & I stayed two nights in the Vineyard Room. Loved it! We were especially pleased with Rita's attention to our "special" requests. We needed a safe place to lock our bicycles over-night (back porch) and she provided an early (7:30) breakfast for us since we were cycling at 9am (her normal breakfast time) both days with our bike...

The best thing about staying at a BnB is that it lets you live in a fashion that feels so much more like home. The Shafsky House understands this, and provides a clean comfortable "homey" space when I'm away from home on business trips to Sacramento. Located only a short walk from all of the wonderful restaurants in Placerville, it... More

This was our second stay at the Shafsky B&B. Rita is wonderful. She gave us ideas for dinner while offering us a glass of wine. Her cooking is just delightful. Something different every morning. The entire house is professionally decorated. Turns out Rita is the decorator. Our downstairs king bed room was just perfect. We slept like babies. We were... More

We were in Placerville for a family wedding and stayed at the Shafsky House. Rita warmly welcomed us, showed us around and led us to our cozy room. Great and comfortable spot, just what we wanted. Oh, and the breakfasts were ample and delicious. A big plus is that it's just a 5 minute walk to Main Street, so once... More

A gracious hostess, a prime location (easy walking distance over a pedestrian bridge to Main Street) & a gourmet breakfast are highlights of A-S B&B. The room had an interesting, old-fashioned & themed decor, but was a tad too cluttered, as I had trouble finding space to lay out my things. I would definitely stay here again.

Stephanie was a warm and welcoming host. The room was so cozy and the bed was comfy. The neighborhood was quiet. Stephanie made a delicious breakfast of french toast, sausage, and fruit with yogurt-yum! I loved my stay at the Shafsky House, and I will definitely return.

My husband and I stayed at the Safsky House 2-28-15-2-2-15. Our room was comfortable and delightfully decorated with railroad memorabilia.

Rita, our stay at your lovely Victorian House was lovely. I loved the furniture, décor, and cleanliness. We have stayed in several BandBs but none as elegant and truly representative of the times. Thank you so much for upgrading us to the lower floor and for allowing us to have a nice visit with my nephew. He loved your place... More
