Placerville, CA in El Dorado County

Located in the Historic District of Placerville, the Albert Shafsky House Bed and Breakfast is just a short stroll from Main Street. Find art galleries, antique shops, historic buildings, specialty stores and several excellent dining establishments as you meander through this town so rich in Old West History.

Visit Placerville Hardware, the Bell Tower, Pearson’s Soda Works, the old Court House, the Ziesz Brewery Ruins and the Fountain Tallman Soda Works which is now a Museum.

Placerville is well-known for having a colorful Gold Rush past. It started in Coloma in 1848 when James Marshall discovered gold flecks in a sawmill and carries on through today as Hangtown remains the hub of the Mother Lode. Named after the Placer Gold deposits found in its river beds and hills in the late 1840’s, Placerville’s rich mining history and lore includes the infamous Hangman’s Tree.

Visit us this spring/summer for whitewater rafting and vineyard tasting!

Springtime at our Placerville bed and breakfast

Was a lovely, if a bit unseasonably warm, Spring day yesterday in El Dorado County. Just a short drive from our bed and breakfast are many foothill wineries to sample, so we decided to zip up to Camino and see our friends at Wofford Acres Wines and enjoy their view and the afternoon.

A little Geocaching in Coloma, El Dorado County

Some of you may know that I have been geocaching near our Placerville bed and breakfast for a while now. I blame my Aunt and Uncle who recently innsat for us for getting me fact, I found one in Florence while they were innsitting the B&B! So, our pals at the American River Conservancy (great group) are holding a class this Sunday for more information.
