The Return! A new years eve visit to one of my favorite historical hotels. The second time around, was as interesting as the first. As a paranormal investigator, I find the Cary House to be very interesting place to conduct evp’s. The staff is fun and kind. If your ever around the area, you’ll have to try a stay in...

Our third time staying at the Cary House. It is a great location, right in the heart of historic Placerville for shopping and dining. The rooms are somewhat dated, but clean and comfortable bed for us...and quiet. We will stay again next time we go to Placerville.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Cary House for three nights. The staff were wonderful to us and made us feel quite welcome.The location is within walking distance to several places to eat. Just take note there is no where open in the downtown to eat at 10:00pm. The first night we had a Superior Suite for four...

We had planned a two-night stay at South Lake Tahoe, but the first major storm of the season blew in a day early, so we fled the mountains for lower elevations. We really like Placerville, so after a late lunch we decided to seek lodging in town. We had walked past the Historic Cary House Hotel on previous visits so...

We often visit friends in the area. You know, two nights in a corporate, sterile room. This time we decided to try something real, something that has stood the test of time. We were not disappointed. Walking into the lobby we immediately felt warm and welcome. The great artifacts and beautiful stained glass are just part of the attraction. This...

I love the location of the Cary House Hotel. It is right on Main Street and when you walk out the door you are in the heart of Placerville. The front desk staff were very helpful. Aside from location and staff - I felt the hotel was a real let down. We stayed in a king bed, junior suite. The...

We stayed at the Cary House as we were in town for a friend's family gathering in the area. In this hotel you are staying for the experience and the sense of history that it engenders. From a mods and cons perspective it doesn't really have many of those. It does have the oldest lift car in the west of...

There is so much history around this hotel you could spends an hour in the lobby. We had a pleasant stay in the Yellow Jacket room. It was decorated charming. The hotel location is great. It is so easy to walk up the street to a variety of restaurants. The best place however is the wine tasting next door at...

We stayed here and since there were two couples, they put us in a suite to save us money. Since the building is very old the layout was not ideal (having to go through one bedroom to get to the bathroom) but they have done the best they can with the space there is. The day we stayed they had...

We were in a front room on the 4th floor. Very difficult to get luggage there since only two people or one person and luggage can ride in the elevator at a time. There is no one on duty at the desk after 8, and we had an issue with a hotel guest wondering the halls in his boxers looking...
