“What a find!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

My wife and I were looking for a "new" area of California to explore and fortunately we found the Eden Vale Inn in the gold country. Our stay was wonderful. Beautiful grounds, gracious owners, gourmet breakfasts and all of the amenities that you could ask for from a Bed and Breakfast. The Inn sits on a hill with surrounding views and is as peaceful and quiet of a spot that you could imagine. In the evening you can sit near the pond and watch the sun set over the hills, then walk over to the "pit fire" and make yourself some "s'mores". We stayed in "Live Oak" and we loved it. Mark and Gayle will provide you with any information that you need to explore the area and find a great meal. One evening we did take-out and enjoyed the lovely patio (Allez has really gourmet take-out). If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, deluxe Inn to stay in to explore the gold country the Eden Vale Inn is the place!

Mark and Gayle, our hosts at Eden Vale Inn B & B, have developed a most amazing place. From the coffee service delivered near your door each morning, to the fresh, healthy, home made breakfast, to the spotless, beautiful, quiet rooms, Eden Vale was a great place to begin our recent visit to northern California. We really appreciated all that Mark and Gayle have done to create an environment that is at once modern (incredible bathrooms and bed linens), yet warm and inviting (fire pit, super-friendly pets). I am a humble gardener, and must add that the trees, flowers, plants, and water features on the property were a sight to behold for us - our winter has been so long. Although we did not have the time, the spa services offered at Eden Vale were super-tempting. Thank you for a wonderful visit! We hope to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Grey Pine room with a king bed and super soaking tub. Loved it.

We are honored to get a cultured review from a Parisian. It may be a long time coming but, we hope you can return. We take from the Italians that "good things take time" and the French a love and perfection of art and cuisine. Eden Vale Inn is our art and cuisine and, it's a living form. Thanks for visiting.

It seems unnecessary to pen our names along with the multitudes who have already given such positive reviews, but since we had such a nice stay, and the innkeepers were so unfailingly helpful, we'll join the crowd. This is probably the nicest all-around B&B we've visited in California. The rooms are classy and well-designed with beautiful bathrooms and comfortable beds. They feature modern, click-touch ambiance lighting and fancy showers. Our room had a great outdoor tub that must have been four feet deep. On top of the rooms, the breakfast are fantastic and would no doubt pull $15 a pop in San Francisco. And the innkeepers strike a perfect balance between helpfulness and allowing space. A wonderful place to spend a few days in the country!

We have stayed at the Eden Vale Inn seven times. Innkeepers Mark and Gayle have made each and every visit extra special. Their warm and gracious nature make you feel like you're staying at your best firend's house. The Inn is magnificent and the grounds are welcoming and relaxing. The morning coffee/tea service outside your door gets your day off on the right foot. The breakfasts are exquisite, with Gayle's Parisian cooking classess apparent in every dish. The highlight of most evenings is sitting under the stars around the firepit sipping a glass of wine from one of the nearby wineries and getting to know some of the other guests, while Mark and Gayle are offering up s'mores.

The rooms are immaculately decorated. All of the controls (lights, fireplace, etc.) are on a panel next to the bed. They've thought of every last detail and often add something new between each of our stays. The Eden Vale Inn staff are efficent, friendly, and dedicated to ensuring you have a great time.

We have been very fortunate to stay at B&B's throughout Northern California and in other countries. The Eden Vale Inn is by far the best B&B we've ever visited. .

If you are looking for a place to completely detach from the everyday world, get pampered, and become fully relaxed, the Eden Vale Inn is likley the place for you.

I spent the weekend at the Eden Vale Inn Bed and Breakfast as a personal retreat to refresh and re-calibrate for the up coming year. During my search, I was surprised to find a hidden gem in Placerville. When I saw Gayle and Mark's video and the pictures they presented on their website, I new this was the place for me. My stay did not leave me wanting. They were kind and generous hosts! When I got there, Gayle moved me from Live Oak to the Stone Pine for my retreat. I so appreciated her thoughtfulness in picking out a very private and quiet room. The breakfast was elegantly prepared, even with my gluten free restrictions. The inn was a creatively updated barn with moderns amenities, that included a gas fireplace, incredible room lighting, rain and hand held shower and comfortable bedding. But the highlight was the private outdoor soaking tubs that could be used on the coldest nights. Outside, I was in awe of the meandering garden that surrounded the grounds. It was cleverly provided with chairs and tables hidden among the foliage. Since I was there in the dead of winter, I look forward to returning in the spring with greenery and color. And lastly, I booked a discounted massage ahead of my arrival and requested a nurturing therapist using hot stones. Gayle took care in finding the perfect person to fulfill my needs as well as providing a warm upscale spa atmosphere.

Thank you Gayle, Mark and Eden Vale Inn for a healing and restful stay.

Eden Vale Inn Bed & Breakfast in Placerville/Coloma is just fabulous in so many ways. The rooms are very private, our had access both from the inside, and the exterior. Because we booked late, the only room available was the Live Oak (handicap accessible), but with the private double hot soaking tub on the deck, European shower and ornate gas fireplace, we would gladly request it again. The common areas are very peaceful and comfortable. Outside common areas include a full outdoor kitchen, a brick pizza oven, garden areas galore, large pond, and a barbecue area with a fire pit and lounging chairs. We requested the onsite couples massage which was heavenly, especially since we followed up with a soak in in the outdoor tub. Innkeepers Gail & Mark seem to be prepared for any request, and are able to make suggestions if you aren't sure what you want. (We overheard Gail suggest s'mores to some individuals socializing and relaxing at the outdoor fire pit one evening, and offered the ingredients.). They seem to have thought of everything, and breakfast was definitely a treat each of the three mornings we were there. There is plenty to do for sightseeing within 15-30 minutes as it is located near where gold was originally found , plenty of shopping not far away if that is your pleasure (historic mainstreet in Placerville is pet friendly with many shops having a bowl of water just outside) .

We plan to punch a sitting room out to the west into the garden and convert from a Queen to a King bed. We always have new plans for improvement. Thank you for visiting and the warm review.

My husband and I returned to the Eden Vale Inn this year after spending a few days there in December of 2012. We brought another couple to experience the beautiful Inn. The Host's are wonderful. Accommodating doesn't begin to describe their service for their guests. The Inn is designed creatively with a very warm atmosphere. The breakfast is delicious in their dining room which overlooks the beautiful gardens surrounding the Inn. Strolling around the gardens and pond is relaxing and serene. The soaking tubs in the outdoor area of your room is a must. If possible book spa treatments in the well appointed spa area. It is a fabulous experience.
We plan on returning every year!!
