I am a long time FAN.

This is the place to stay! Whether you are on your way to Tahoe and beyond or just spending some time in the foothills of California, Shafsky House is like home, but without the work. The Inn Keepers Rita and Stephanie are friendly, and make you feel welcome. The food is GREAT, and better than any restaurant. They are willing to accommodate special dietary needs,too. Just tell them what you need and Rita will work out a special breakfast just for you.
The location is central to all kinds of activities. It is a great place to stay when skiing. It is central to Apple Hill, White water rafting, & exploring the gold country. It is also a good place to just relax, read and stroll the local shops.
The rooms are comfortable, the beds Heavenly. It is one of the few B&B's that has a bedroom downstairs for those individuals who don't navigate stairs easily.
We love this place and it has become the only place we stay when visiting the area. We recommend Shafsky House to anyone who wants a friendly, clean, and comfortable place to stay.

Yep, that's right, I'm a fan. Correction, I'm a FAN. : )
Where to start?
The house is beautiful, historic, and comfortable. The beds are HEAVENLY. The rooms are well-appointed with whatever amanities you would need.
Breakfast is always delicious and thoughtfully prepared. Fresh fruits, great coffee, blueberry pancakes last time we were there, oooh, I wish I were there NOW!!!
Great location--- walking distance to many fun shops downtown Placerville and not far from Apple Hill.
The innkkeepers have become good friends to us over the years and our several visits. Also, we love this place so much that we gave gift certificates to our bridal party as a thank you gift for their participation in our wedding.
You truly feel like you've gone to visit with friends when you stay at Shafsky House.

What a wonderful place to stay in Placerville. The inn is within walking distance of downtown and within driving distance of fantastic wineries and historic sites.
The rooms are lovely, individually decorated, and comfortable. The Inn Keepers, Rita and Stephanie make you feel welcome.
In the morning, you are greeted with the aroma of breakfast and coffee. Breakfast is made by Rita and is always a special treat. The Shafsky House recently won an award for having the best breakfast! Well Deserved!

I love to visit this charming old Victorian. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The food is great and the beds are comfy. This is a great location. Lots of things to do in the area and you can walk to town.
