“Rent out the whole house! We've done it twice and it is fabulous :-)”
Reviewed February 22, 2011

All the bridesmaids stayed there right before my sister got married last year. It was so fabulous that four of us brought back our spouses and did it again. Elke is a fantastic hostess, there when you want her to be and gone when you don't. Her breakfasts are sublime and she has special touches for whatever you are celebrating. She remembers your preferences and even has notes on what breakfast she served you so you don't have the same thing twice. The rooms are darling and the home is lovely with a large patio in back with a bbq kitchen area, a fireplace and a pool sized fountain too.

Enchanted April Farm epitomizes cleanliness in public accomodations. No dust anywhere. Linens and rooms are excellent. Beds are comfortable and you are not close to anything so you will get all the peace and quiet you could want. Just ask Elke the Innkeeper if you have any particular desires and she will do her best to accomodate you even to the point of anticipating what you may desire.
Elke demostrates the art of the gourmet breakfast every morning, in a separate dining room with wonderful china and settings. The breakfast usually comes in courses with a printed menu of the day's repast on your setting when you arrive at the table. Depending on the other guests at the Inn, Elke can and will accomodate your breakfast times.
If you have horses the facilities are very good. My only criticisim would be having a dumpster closer to the corrals for the manure. You will be expected to feed and clean up after your own animal.

My 18 year old daughter and I stayed at Enchanted April Inn and had the most peaceful time. The hospitality was fantastic and Elke made us feel like it was our home. I would highly recommend going there for a stay. Freat breakfast and a really relaxing time.

Once in a while, a Bed and Breakfast comes along that fulfills everyone’s dreams. At Enchanted April Farm both the inn and the grounds invite the heart, mind and legs. Your innkeeper is a fascinating lady whose breakfasts look and taste divine. Six months later, I’m returning. Thank you for keeping elegance and generosity alive.

Our riding group found Enchanted April Farm in 2009 and had such a great stay we vowed to make it our special annual event.
It's like having your own personal spa to escape to and our horses loved being there as much as we did!
The nearby riding is fabulous with trails along the American River and the famous Tevis track up into the beautiful California Gold Country. The Gold Country is a fun place to explore with LOTS of historic sights and quaint towns.
With or without horses, plan a getaway to Enchanted April Farm - it's terrific!
