“Best option in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2008

I think that this is the best option in town, particularly if you are on vacation. Was actually in town for the business. Was looking for nice, quiet place. Good B and B, has only three rooms. Got to meet some interesting people who were staying there. Cookies in the evening were delicious. Unfortunately, had to leave early in the morning both days, so could not partake in the 9AM breakfast, but sounded really good. I had the upper bedroom. Nicely decorated, everything worked well. However, if you need a big desk and other things to do business work, this is not the place. Remember, this is a B and B. The only other thing, which is minor, is that house at corner of the street, and there are cars going by. However, very few cars after 10PM. Will only be problem if you are very sensitive to noise.

Very charming old Victorian home. Rita was so kind and served up some wonderful breakfasts! Will stay there again if we are in the area. Felt very comfortable there.

We just spent three days at the Albert Shafsky House B&B in Placerville and had a wonderful time! The house is a registered Victorian, beautifully restored inside and out. The innkeepers, Rita & Stephanie, live in the house, which has only three rooms available for lodgers. Our room, the Gandy Dancer, was upstairs and adjacent to a busy road so traffic noise was noticable with the windows open. The room was very clean, the decor nicely done, and the bed quite comfortable and elegant. The breakfasts were really a treat: always delicious and far from ordinary fare. Our favorite part of our stay? Meeting and becoming friends with Rita and Stephanie. They were so welcoming and cordial that we soon felt like we'd known them for years! The bent over backwards to help us with dinner reservations (at wonderful restaurants they suggested) and anything else we needed. We highly recommend this B&B.

  • Liked — Great Innkeepers
  • Disliked — Some traffic noise at times.

We decided to stay in Placerville, both to celebrate a birthday and to play golf. After checking the internet we chose to stay at the Shafsky House. What an enjoyable experience! Our hosts, Rita and Stephanie, took wonderful care of us and were very knowledgeable of the area. They made dinner reservations for us, gave us recommendations on places to see and, fed us delightful breakfasts. Try to stay there if you are in the area.

My first stay at a B&B.....couldn't have been better! The food was fantastic, very attentive inn keepers, and a beautiful home. Very clean!
It was very nice to relax by the fireplace and read my book! There is plenty to do in Placerville and Rita and Stephanie are more than willing to help you find something that you would enjoy! Thanks for a great weekend.

This is the most charming B&B we have stayed in. The breakfast's were excellent and the food fresh and exciting. The hosts were welcoming and very pleasant and Lilly was the hit of our stay. Very authentic with period furniture and a truly lovely setting. Would give them a 10 as far as welcoming atmosphere and beauty. Don't miss this gem in the wonderful town of Placerville.
