Time to go rafting, winetasting and more....

The days are warm and the river is flowing, Placerville has a birthday, and wine tasting is always in season.



Time to raft the American River

It is that time of year when Rita and I enjoy a good trip down the South Fork of the American River. Exciting for experienced rafters and a great introduction for first- timers too!

There are many raft companies to take you down the river...give us a call for some suggestions.

Check out one of our favorite outfitters, who offer our guests 10% when you stay with us.
