We were in Sacramento for business, and decided to extend our stay for some R&R. Unfamiliar with Northern CA, we serendipitously decided to stay in Placerville (it was also conveniently located for the whitewater rafting trip we planned). I found the Albert Shafsky House B&B on BedandBreakfast.com website, confirmed with the reviews on TripAdvisor. What a delight. We stayed in... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed your time in Placervile. Your kind words about the B&B and your experience here is appreciated. Rafting is always a fun way to spend your time here as well as shopping in old down town. We hope to see you again when you visit beautiful El Dorado County! More

We had a nice three night stay and met interesting and friendly people. Would recommend it to anyone who likes a bed and breakfast. A easy walk to town. Rita's breakfast was a cut above. Good every morning.

We had a wonderful stay at this attractive well kept B&B. Rita made us feel right at home and over a glass of wine in the living room gave us impartial assessment about the local.restaurants. She stays informed by eating out often. It was easy to find the B&B and was just a short walk into town. Our main floor... More

Oh how wonderful to hear that your stay at the B&B met your expectations.

Would love to have you return and spend even more time here. Until next time. More

The town was a wonderful surprise and the stay at Albert's made great by Rita and her fine cooking and hospitality. One breakfast was an apple, brie stuffed croissant and the next was a unique benedict with asparagus. We had a pretty, "trains" room with lots of fun signs. It is a busy corner - so they kindly supply ear... More

Thanks for letting others know about your stay at the B&B. Yes, being on the corner of Hwy 49, the Gold Vein & traveled by many, lends itself to traffic and sometimes intreresting wild life. The earplugs in each room are there to help you soften the noise. The pipes, well they are old like the innkeeper so we have... More

On our way to Lake Tahoe we decided to stay over night in Placerville at the Albert Shafsky House. It is conveniently located about three blocks from downtown Placerville. It is also close to a state park where you can pan for gold (our real motivation for our stay in Placerville.) Turns out the gold panning wasn't fruitful but the... More

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
