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. You are greeted with a glass of wine and a key to the house. From then on you're treated as one of... More

Thanks for your very kind words about your stay at our B&B. We believe each guest(s) are unique in their own ways and need to be treated that way. If conversation is needed then by all means here we are and if not, non verbal is what you get. Sharing stories about the area is fun so when asked we... More

Very nice B&B, short walk to Main Sreet. Rita is a very accommodating hostess. Nice glass of wine upon arrival and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. As a sometimes early riser, I appreciated the 24 hour access to the krug with good variety of coffee and teas. Traffic can be heard in the room at the top of the... More

We thought that staying in a wonderful home in a wonderful town would be.....well, great. Although the travel website said it was booked, we took a chance and called. I am so happy we did. Rita and Lily were so warm and welcoming. Okay, so Lily barked, but soon became our best friend. Stephanie we understood was in Ireland. Breakfast... More

We stayed 2 nights in the vineyard room, which was large and comfortable. Rita was lovely and welcoming, and full of good advice on where to eat, and what to do in the area. Breakfast was delicious, but it happens at 9 and there is no choice. So all in all an excellent B&B, recommended!

Thanks for your kind words! Our goal is to make every guest feel welcome and at home. Breakfasst is served at nine for several reasons. One being most guests enjoy "sleeping in" or taking a morning stroll and the other....I'm the only one in the kitchen and it does take some time to prepare the breakfast that you enjoyed. Hope...

We recently spent two nights at the Albert Shafsky B&B. We stayed in the Vineyard Room down stairs off the living room. Everything was clean and very comfortable.

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.
