Summer is here in the foothills, but we still have some snow melting and the South Fork is flowing. New wines to taste and new shops on Main Street to visit. Don't forget Apple Hill season is just around the corner. And of course you can find upcoming events on the calendar of events
Some additions to the inn. You may notice a name change to our newsletter...we added Albert to our inn name, so it is now the "Albert Shafsky House Bed & Breakfast". And we placed cd players in all the rooms, so you may bring your favorite relaxing music or listen to our selelctions.
We all scream for ice cream!!! The Albert Shafsky House B&B has partnered with Cold Stone Creamery in Placerville and is happy to offer our guest "buy one, get one" certificates. They will be waiting in your room when you arrive.
And we have added a puppy named Lily Belle to the inn. She is a 14 week old mini-doxie and she loves to say "hi" to the guests and then disappear into the grass.
Your Innkeepers, Rita and Stephanie
Wine Barrels on Parade
This year artists were asked to work with wine barrels and come up with creative ways to promote art and tourism in historic Placerville, California. Wine barrels were chosen as the canvas for this art project due to the lone and rich history of wine- making in El Dorado County. Come and see them for yourselves! Photos in the gallery coming soon.
Wanna get wet and wild on the American River?
If you would like to go rafting, just give us a call or visit the website for several companies that we work with to offer you a great day on the river. Yep, that is us rafting last year on the American River. No photos of this year yet, but we are going next week...
What guests have said recently.... from Tripadvisor....
"Our son was married at the "Bee Bennett House" and we were fortunate to book our rooms at the Albert Shafsky House just a few blocks away. My family booked the three wonderful rooms (Vineyard, Lighthouse, Garrett) and it was like being in our own home! Everthing in this B&B was impeccable...the food, the furnishings, the hospitality of Rita and Stephanie. We had a few special requests (flowers for my mom, wedding prep) and all were greeted with absolute graciousness and hospitality. We were all wonderfully impressed and we unanimously recommend this location for your visit to Gold Country."
"Thanks for such a wonderful stay! Lovely hospitality, delicious breakfasts & precious puppy!"
"As usual, a fabulous time, fabulous food and above all fabulous company. Congratulations on the new puppy."
