From your own private brick patio & secret garden, you will be welcomed inside to polished wood floors, deep soak Jacuzzi tub/ hand-held European style shower, comply dbl sleigh bed, quality linens, everything clean to a 't'. We are Self-Catered but you will find light breakfast items & snacks available. Better yet, a short 2 block walk & you can explore Old Town shops & eateries. Another accommodation in the same locations offers a full kitchen & can accommodate friends (see Old Town Cottage)


Perched above Old Town Placerville, Stage Coach rides, restaurants, shops. Only a short walk to Old Town, were are a 10 minute drive to Apple Hill Farm or Gold Country Wineries! This super welcoming private Suite is part of a large home that sits above Main Street and was the the talk of the town when it was built in the 50s. It is it's own separate space with a private entrance. You will think you have landed in a secret garden with quiet seclusion although you only have a short walk to shops and restaurant of downtown.

The bedroom is large and comfortable with garden views, a double sleigh bed, closet, personal temperature control, ceiling fan, cozy fireplace, polished shining wood floors and plenty of storage. Wireless is available but no TV. A separate space has a built in executive desk with coffee and tea service which also offers a small refrigerator. You can take your morning cup and sit under the umbrella in the garden during warm weather or by the 'fire' in the winter, and wake up slowly.

The bathroom is all your own. It has a deep soak jacuzzi with a Euro hand held shower, classical tile flooring, plenty of towels, and even a towel warmer.

At certain times I am able to make the full house available to accommodate additional guests and allow open access to the kitchen. This needs to be negotiated prior to arrival. There is a lot of flexibility so if you would like something more than your own little private garden accommodation, just inquire and we will make every effort host your needs.

Historic Placerville sprang into being with the largest human migration in world history: the Gold Rush of 1849. It was a rough wild place back then. There are many reminders of that history everywhere you look but now you'll also find hundreds of Gold Country Award Winning Wineries, excellent restaurants, and quaint Shops (don't miss Placerville Hardware - oldest west of the Mississippi), history, wildlife (of all kinds) and just the breathtaking beauty of the Sierras (we are 45 minutes from skiing at Sierra at Tahoe and closer yet for snowshoeing. As a backcountry enthusiast, I will gladly share my favorite places to go.

There are wonderful places to eat in Placerville and you can walk to all of them all. For dinner I particularly like The Independent (best all around), Hey Day ( fun and excellent fare with a wonderful wine list), Cascada (very good upscale Mexican/full bar). Breakfast: the best Italian style espresso is at with light breakfast fare and gelato), Cuppa Coffee and More has the most friendly staff, light breakfast & a good selection of gluten free wonders. Sweetie Pie's is an all time favorite of Placervillians for breakfast.

Close by attractions include:
Apple Hill Farms ( open at harvest - late August- Dec)
Red Hawk Casino
Hiking: Desolation Wilderness and Carson Pass are favorites Skiing: 45 minutes to Sierra at Tahoe
River Rafting South and Middle Fort of the American River
Passport Weekend (wineries put on the 'dog')
Christmas in Placerville and the Lighting of the Christmas tree
Christmas Tree Farms
The Brew Fest in October
Daffodil Hill and Bluebird Iris Farms

FINDING YOUR HIDEAWAY: When you walk up the step (you'll see the photo in the album), from the street, and go past the birdhouses, along the walkway, you will enter a courtyard and the gate to your private garden will be straight ahead.Enter through the French door, the key will be on the table as you enter. If the day is warm, I will leave the air conditioner on but the nights cool down, so you can turn it off and leave the windows and door open for a fresh breeze (there is also an overhead fan). The neighborhood is safe and you will be secure enough to leave the door open, if you like. For cozy winter nights you will find the fireplace welcoming you inside and a wintery garden view from bed.

What could be a better place to start an adventure, whether hiking the Sierras, exploring history, wineries, apple farms, getting into the holiday spirit or meeting up with friend or family, than your own personal and cozy little place that is all yours, not a hotel but living authentic history and beautiful Placerville life.

Request may also want to request a link to the house for kitchen access, and with communication exchanged between us, the whole house can be made available. This is a very flexible place. You will love it whichever way you choose.

I am not aways available to interact with my guests although I love to say 'Hello' and introduce them to their own private little 'cottage' and, although I dislike good-byes, to be able to meet you for a farewell hug. Many weekends during the summer sailing period, I may be sailing and gone for part or all of the weekend. I will gladly give you introduction to my wonderful neighbors or downtown merchants who will gladly be your Placerville 'alternate' hosts. We love that you choose to be here. Even if I am not here to welcome you personally (my loss) the entire town is here for you. Come.

Finding the Secret Garden can be tricky but if you follow the directions I text you prior to arrival, you will do just fine.

This sweet little place is completely contained and very private, however, if you arrive late from dinner or an event, or are up early in the morning, there are other residents in the building and your courteousness in observing quiet times is very much appreciated. Quiet time after 10 and before 8

Wonderfully fresh, clean and upscale-y BnB with the lovely host Cindy who even invited us to go sailing on the Lake Tahoe with her - a wonderfully generous offer! Placerville was a delight, and the dinner recommendation at the Hayday were spot on!

This is a charming spot and you will not be disappointed. Cindy has put her own special touch on everything in this lodging...and it shows! It is QUIET and PEACEFUL yet very conveniently located near old downtown. A quick walk and you are in the midst of lovely old-time Placerville. Cindy, herself, could not be more accommodating, caring, and serviceful. We felt blessed in our choice and in our whole experience!

Cindy’s place is great. We stayed there to go over to Apple Hill for the day. It’s also very close to downtown Placerville. She was very communicative before we arrived, and the room was very warm and welcoming when we got there. She gave us great recommendations about what to do and where to eat. The room was quaint and we felt very at home there! Great place to stay.

Wow! My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to Placerville for an apple picking excursion and we were so fortunate to have been able to book Cindy's beautiful room and garden! Our trip turned into an unexpected and amazingly refreshing life experience- thanks in large part to Cindy! First, her communication is impeccable. She wants to know what your interests are during your stay and she provides a splendid assortment of recommendations. Her instructions and directions are clear, timely and accurate. Second, the cozy room and garden were accurate to the description, but its truly the subtleties of the room that make you realize how much Cindy REALLY thinks about the needs of her guests. The artwork and decor created a warm and welcoming environment and was a great place to call home at the end of a long day of explorations. Lastly, Cindy's hospitality and good nature was such a pleasure! We were thankful to have been able to share a conversation with her at a local restaurant and she is such a cheery ball of joy. You can tell she wants you to share in the great experiences of her home! She guided us to several wineries and restaurants that we hadn't planned on visiting at all and put our apple picking experience in a quick second place!! Without her, we would have definitely not been experiencing Placerville at its fullest!! She is the perfect hostess! If you are planning on visiting the area and want to explore it for what its truly worth, stay with Cindy and take full advantage of her recommendations! We hope to visit again!!

The very best thing a host can hope for is a review like yours. It says 'mission accomplished'.

Best of all, I like that it was an unexpected surprise My best, Cindy

I love living in the Sierras, hiking, snow skiing, rafting and all the activities around Placerville. I am equally happy exploring the wine country (too many wonderfully wineries to count) and the old gold mining towns along the old 49er route. More than that I like to share all that is here with others. It is my pleasure to make your stay a relaxing and comfortable base, whether it is just a hideaway or an adventure you are looking for. Having owned a restaurant/hotel and loving it, I think this intimate space is the best idea yet. Traveling off the beaten path and discovering the unexpected while enjoying the creature comforts, at the same time - adventure from a secure known place, is my preference. Thats what i like most about Airbnb: you have a recommended contact, someone who is there to welcome you and give guidance, if you want.

I'm just a bit of an introvert and respect your privacy but also love and enjoy people - so I am happy to have you stay with as much or as little of me as you prefer.

Maui has been home, as Chico, Del Rio, and England have been. I have travelled Europe, Mexico and a fair part of the US but my favorite travel is slow, staying in one place and getting to know the people and the community over a longer period of time. My hope you will feel comfortable and welcomed in this special accommodation, no matter how long you get to stay. I hope you will feel at home and welcomed into the community with just the right amount of adventure that suits you, too..
