“Great Hostesses, Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2007

My husband and I spent a weekend in early February at The Albert Shafsky B & B. Our daughter, who lives in the hills outside Placerville, recommended this particular B & B and it more than met our expectations. We shall definitly stay again for the company, the excellent breakfasts and all the little extras. The room was quiet and very pleasantly decorated.

We have stayed at the Albert Shafsky House for the past 4 years. Rita and Stephanie truly make you feel like one of the family when you are in their home. The rooms are spotless and cozy, the breakfasts are delicious, the amenities are first class. My husband and I would not consider staying elsewhere when we are in the Pacerville area.

Our son was married at the "Bee Bennett House" and we were fortunate to book our rooms at the Shafsky House just a few blocks away

My family booked the three wonderful rooms (Vineyard, Lighthouse, Garrett) and it was like being in our own home! Everthing in this B&B was impeccable...the food, the furnishings, the hospitality of Rita and Stephanie. We had a few special requests (flowers for my mom, wedding prep) and all were greeted with absolute graciousness and hospitality. We were all wonderfully impressed and we unanimously recommend this location for your visit to Gold Country.

You'll like the Shafsky House. Why: Warm and helpful proprietors Rita and Stephanie, Rita's truly gourmet breakfasts, the convenient almost-downtown Placerville location, the comfortable beds, the witty and accurate period furnishings, the spotless cleaning and thorough maintenance. We've spent 12 days there on annual visits and have already reserved again for next year. It satisfies Mr. Functional and Comfortable (me) and Mrs. Clean and Friendly (my dearest).

Practical notes: There is off-street parking (ask for details when you reserve); there are a lot of small decorative things in some rooms that a small child could break. Heating is excellent; we have never needed the air conditioners. Even though this is an old building from the Gold Rush era, there are plenty of electric plugs, the plumbing works, the hot water gets to the shower quickly, and the Wi-Fi is free. Go.

We spent two nights at this impeccably attired B & B in the small community of Placerville, Ca.
The holiday season was in full bloom and this particular location had "out-done" themselves with the ambiance of the Christmas Season. Fully decorated and the homey atmosphere was very uplifting not only in style but the amenities of your time there will impress the most
picky of traveler. Rita & Steph are masters of their craft giving the traveler the utmost in care and service to please.

The food is not surpassed by the finest of reatuarants. Well prepared and hearty breakfasts!

Upon leaving the Shafsky House in Placerville,Ca. you will feellike you have been treated like royalty at this beautiful B & B.

We had been to other B & B's and this one has surpassed our expectations.

This was my first time at a B & B and it was everything I had been hoping for. The house was so neat. It was fun being inside and thinking about the people who had once owned it and lived there as a family.

Rita and Stephanie were so easy to talk to, it was like we had always known them.

The breakfast was really good, an apple pancake with fruit and blueberry muffins. The coffee was good as well.

The afternoon that we arrived Rita had made chocolate chip cookies and they were the best I have ever had!

Everything was so clean and neat, it was just like being home. We will certainly recommend them to our friends. We hope to return again another time and stay a little longer. It was close to town so we were able to walk downtown and do some shopping and looking around.
