“Perfect Weekend In Placerville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We just spent a perfect weekend in P'ville. Rita surpassed our expectations with the dreamy breakfast, bottle of wine at our arrival and the comfiest bed one could even imagine. Every detail was taken care of, including calling around to find our party of 4 a good place to have dinner. It is apple hill time up there, and everyone is super busy. Absolutely loved our visit and looking forward to another getaway from the Bay Area..

Room Tip: We loved the Gandy Dancer... Named for trains, very comfortable

This beautifully restored historic property is owned by Stephanie and Rita, two of the nicest people you could ever meet. It's the perfect place for anyone interested in California Gold Country history. The rooms and the beds are so comfortable - it's like being a guest in someone's lovely home.

Downtown Placerville is a short walk (about a mile) and is a great place to find treasures in antique shops. Also, plan to spend a bit of time looking at the photos at the inn - each one has a story.

Rita's breakfasts are outstanding, you'll probably be asking her for recipes as I did. Also, if you just looooove the bedsheets, which I did, they'll even order a set for you!

Rita and Steph gave us the stay of a life-time 6 years ago. Their company, breakfast were warm; while their suggestions for food, wine and fun to be had were spot on. They treated us like good friends, pointing the way to our new life.

We first stayed there as boyfriend and girlfriend now we are husband and wife and keep going back. Rita, Steph and Lilly have become more than just host to us, they are family that we can never wait to see again.

A stay at Albert Shafsky's is like going home.

Love,
F and Z

I enjoyed my stay at this Bed & Breakfast. The owners gave wonderful tips and shared their knowledge of the local area with me. They were personable while at the same time respecting my privacy. The breakfasts were incredible, a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy!

Our stay at this lovely historic B&B was memorable and we hope to stay again soon. Rita greeted us at the door and from that moment, we felt right at home. After offering us a nice bottle of local wine, it was a quick walk into town for dinner. Afterwards, a nice relaxing swing in the side yard proved to be just what we needed after our day's driving. Breakfast was outstanding and started the day off perfectly. Thank you Rita, Stephanie and little Lilly (you are such a good doggie!).

Our overnight stay in this historic B & B will be a treasured memory. I have always wanted to stay in a century home but worried about the amenities. Our room was clean and cozy with beautiful old furniture and excellent bedding. Our innkeeper, Ruth, checked us in quickly as she could see that we needed a shower and nap after arriving on our motorcycle in the hot afternoon. Breakfast was lovely!!!!

Room Tip: The king suite was awesome on the first floor.

We had a most relaxing visit. Really felt at home and comfortable for the first time after more than a week in various SFO area hotels and in Yosemite lodges. Bed very comfortable, especially enjoyed the B&B microsoft fiber sheets. Short walk to several nice restaurants. We tried the Italian Restaurant close by tat Stephanie recommended, and had a great meal. Highly recommended overall for a good travel experience..
