“Nice quiet evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

We had the house all to ourselves for the 1st night of our 20th Anniversary long weekend. The house is close to downtown and we had a pleasant walk in the cool crisp fall air to dinner. The room was cozy and the shower was nice & hot! My husband was thrilled there was internet. All a great way to start our next day. Tom gave us directions to the Apple Hill area were we found lovely scenary & many apple treats. His youngest daughter Charlotte was our breakfast hostess for a bit and she did a lovely job :) Iwould recommend this B&B to coupes and families looking for a comfortable, cozy place to stay in the Placerville area.

GlenMorey is a fantastic B&B...the St. Andrews room is wonderful -- comfortable, clean, furnished tastefully. Very tasty breakfast and the innkeeper Tom is a delightful host...friendly without being intrusive and knowledgeable and down to earth. We loved playing with their puppy Lucas and enjoyed relaxing on the porch. The inn is within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants on Main St. in Placerville and an easy drive to Apple Hill farms. All in all a wonderful weekend thanks to Tom and his graciousness and outstanding and charming inn.

Room Tip: Don't miss the caramel apple french toast!

This little family-owned and run Bed and Breakfast is extremely charming and very comfortable. Housing very few guests, it has the feel of a summer home. A wonderful place to go if you just want to escape the pressures and feel of the city, but not at the expense of that right-at-home feel. Tom, the primary caretaker of the house and its guests, is a gentleman and exceptional cook (the complimentary breakfasts are awesome). I highly recommend this place.

The only drawback may be that, given the nature of the establishment, most of the guests are older (40's and up) married couples. If you're very young, and especially travelling solo, while I don't think you wouldn't enjoy yourself, it may not be the best place for you.

One last plus: gay friendly (or at least gay polite). A very agreeable place, GlenMorey Country House is.

A wee bit of Scotland can be found in Placerville at the GlenMorey House. Our hosts made us feel right at home with fresh brownies upon our arrival. The House is just a short walk across the skybridge to old Placerville. We were sent off each morning after a delightful breakfast and welcomed back each evening with warm brownies. This was our second stay at the GlenMorey and hope to make it back soon.

Room Tip: We stayed both times in the Edinburgh room. The bath has been updated.

Above the city of Placerville, a country getaway. Even though we were very late the first night, our host was very warm and welcoming. Our room and bed were of the utmost quiet and comfort. The grounds are lovely. If you have a special diet need, make sure they get your requests in time for your visit. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I very much enjoyed the charming accomodations, and warmth of our hosts. The gourmet breakfast was a treat. We were the only guests this weeknight, and it was a nice tranquil get away.
