“There’s Gold in Them Thar Bed & Breakfasts!”

Almost 160 years after gold was discovered in California you can still explore the original site now called Marshall’s Gold Discovery Historic Park in Coloma as well as tour the Gold Bug Mine, a once rich mother lode, and learn all the fascinating history at the El Dorado County Museum. And yet there is so much more that commands your attention in this magnificent region of California. It remains the land of adventure with white water rafting, hot air ballooning and always a comfortable bed and breakfast with hospitable innkeepers welcoming you at the end of your busy day.

Down the road in the center of historic Placerville is the elegant Albert Shafsky House Bed & Breakfast. Rita and Stephanie have created romantic period rooms with a bit of whimsy plus every modern need, from individual A/C controls to wireless Internet access. After a comfortable night’s sleep head out to explore Placerville which is full of mining lore and of course the site of the famous Hangman’s Tree. Take a ride through the spectacular countryside and visit some of the over 50 wineries in the Sierra Foothills, many offering wine tasting as well as scenic spots for your picnic.
