“Great Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I spent two nights at the Enchanted April Inn. The room was lovely but what really sets this Inn apart from other properties is the beautiful grounds. It's so well maiintained with a placid lake and comfortable environment. As a woman traveling alone I felt safe and secure in the serenity of the Enchanted April Inn. I wish I could have spent more time there and highly recommend the property to anyone wanting a convenient escape. You wont be disappointed.

Elke has a gorgeous property & was extremely hospitable. Not only are rates quite reasonable, but the accommodations are top-notch. There are so many hidden gems in the area in terms of food and drink and outdoors that the location is perfectly centered with plenty to do. The inn is very well-appointed, clean, and thankfully not "stuffy" or off-putting (as I've found some B&B type places can be). Instead of feeling like a boarder at some stranger's home Elke makes you feel like a guest with family or friends; very comfortable and "easy." Will be back and will recommend.

We stayed at the Enchanted April Inn and it was more than I ever could have imagined. We went for a white water rafting trip, which worked out perfectly, the inn and the rafting are less than 5 miles away from each other. Our room was beautiful and cozy, I must say that the sheets made me feel like I was sleeping on a heavenly cloud, so amazing. Elke was absolutely amazing as well, she greeted us warmly and was there for any question we might have had. She was friendly, kind and went out of her way to make us feel special. We went out to dinner our first night and came back to a treat on our door, Elke hoping we had a fun outing. Her attention to detail is what really made our weekend. If you are going to stay anywhere in Pilot Hill, make sure you stay at the Enchanted April Inn, you won't regret your decision, I know we didn't.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Enchanted April Inn on my way to a wedding in Lake Tahoe and definitely found myself 'enchanted' by the beauty and tranquility of the property and surrounding areas. As other reviews have mentioned, Elke (the hostess) pays incredible attention to detail and has really put quite a bit of thought into creating a very relaxing environment and experience. The grounds are very well manicured and filled with great places to relax, drink a glass of wine, read a great book, etc. I highly recommend this place for a weekend getaway and will definitely be back. Elke (and Rowdy!), thank you for making my first B&B experience so memorable!

The warmth and thoughtfulness of hostess Elke was immediately apparent as she walked up the driveway to welcome us and our equine (and canine) friends. For the next four days, we luxuriated in Elke's care, from the gorgeous and sublimely comfortable rooms to the mouth-watering breakfasts, to lovely spots to have morning coffee in the sun to plan the day and another view-filled spot to gather and share stories and photos from the day's adventures. Our horses were offered covered paddocks or a large grassy pasture. They chose the pasture to romp, roll and graze away their free time. A missing shoe? Elke's farrier was there the morning after our arrival to replace it. We started planning our next visit to this oasis of comfort and care before we even left. Can't wait!

Room Tip: Two rooms face the front of the property and have great views of the horses at pasture. The two room...

We could only spend one night there, too bad we had a schedule to move on. This inn is an island of tranquility a fountain for the replenishment of the soul. Elke is surely a perfect hostess, offering means of relaxation beyond what one could exhaust in a few day's time.
The place has the softest imaginable bed sheets ever. One must really feel it to believe that such smoothness to the touch really exists.
The whole place is oozing class and style and it's not just for the pleasure of the visitor's eye. Those furniture and fittings feel like they really belong and fit there. They are parts of Elke's aura. I'm so glad we could be guests there and enjoy what the Inn and the vista have to offer.
