This beautiful little gem is a wonderful place to spend some gentle and peaceful time surrounded by natural beauty. The owner Guy basically has the whole top of the mountain so when you look out, it seems like it's all yours for as far as the eye can see. His lovely B&B is clean and well run. His full breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented. The amenities in the home are lovely, a step back in time to gracious living. For example, there is a lovely built-in breakfront in the dining room, where you are served breakfast in footed glass dishes, china, embroidered napkins while gazing out on the garden, lawns, pond and distant hills. The cost is not prohibitive, like so many places have become, so it is within reach of normal people. And best of all was the genuine warm welcome and friendly service we got from not only him but his sister and even the housekeeper. And the dog! We loved our visit.
Nearby are historic sites and museums and the people in the whole area are remarkably friendly and welcoming. Auburn's historic buildings, the Bernhard & Courthouse Museums, Ken Fox's monumental statues, the oldest Post Office west of Mississippi. Marshall Gold Discovery Park. Placerville's many sites. The list goes on. We also enjoyed savoring autumn at nearby apple growers of Apple Hill, namely Boa Vista.
This was a refreshing trip and a wonderful find.
