About this property

Historic District Remodel! - Walk to Main St., 2 Miles to Apple Hill & Wineries

Alpine adventures near cross-country skiing
Originally a caretaker's quarters, this charming cottage is ideal for couples retreats, girls getaways or family vacations. At roughly 1000 sq ft, the property has just undergone a complete renovation to provide guests with every luxury and convenience. Tucked away on a quiet hillside it is easy to forget that it is mere blocks from the shops, restaurants and year round festivals and events on Placerville's historic Main Street and just a few miles from the farms and wineries of legendary Apple Hill. Cook a few meals in the open concept kitchen complete with full sized flat top range, garbage disposal, and dishwasher (not everyone has those up here people!). Cupboards are fully stocked with brand new cookware, pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc. Enjoy the fruits of your labor at the large bar top or the cozy 4 seat table. And don't forget to relax with your morning coffee or evening glass of vino in the fresh mountain air on the quaint patio. If you hang out long enough there is a good chance a mama deer and a baby or two will stroll by. Get a good night's sleep in either bedroom furnished with a queen sized bed with new pillow top mattress and luxury linens. The living room sofa folds into a bed that can accommodate an additional adult or two younger children. The first bath is a full with a shower tub combo easily accessed by both bedrooms. The second is a half bath/powder room off of the main living area. Towels, linens, blow dryer, soap, shampoo and conditioner are provided. Stay comfortable no matter the weather with ceiling fans in every room, plus a brand new heating and air system with individual temperature controls for each room. A washer/dryer unit is also provided and housed in the 1/2 bath, as well as an iron and ironing board Relax on the sofa after a day of sight seeing and watch a movie from the extensive DVD collection, catch a show on the smart TV with Netflix , or challenge your companions to a board game. Ideally situated in the heart of gold country, surrounded by an abundance of farms, wineries, mines, Historic California sites, and just short drive from the year round recreation that runs from Sly Park Lake, to Lake Tahoe, in sunshine or snowfall there is always a good time waiting for you in Placerville.

Interior design and all props were very tasteful. Clean and very quiet location. We really love the house. We have a daughter with disabilities, she had a hard time to walk the steps on the hill and from the Parking lot to the house. Other than this we really had a good stay.

Stayed 2 nights in Jun 2019

    Such a cute place and walkable to Main St!

    My wife loved the decor--darling and functional!

      Lovely Caretaker's Cottage!

      My husband and I stayed at this lovely cottage in Placerville for a long weekend as we were running in the Gold Country Half-Marathon and it was only about a 20 minute drive to the run; this cottage is also close to downtown Placerville as well as various wineries in the area. This cottage has 2 queen bedrooms, 2 baths (1 full), and a kitchen with all necessary small appliances (there is also a washer/dryer available). There is even television cable service with amenities such as Netflix. The cottage was recently renovated and nicely furnished. There is also a patio table outside where one can sit and enjoy wine as weather permits. The cottage owners, McKenzie and Brandon, were very nice and accommodating. Given the cottage's presentation, I would not be surprised if the owners had once been in the hospitality industry. For us, the only downside was the cottage was not walkable to the downtown area as there are no sidewalks and the roadway shoulder is only about 6 inches in areas of this small old mining town. Also, from where a guest would park his vehicle, he would need to take steps on cement blocks to get to/from the cottage itself, meaning I would not be comfortable bringing a disabled person with me to stay there. With that said, the steps were no problem for my husband and me. All in all, we had a great time and enjoyed the cottage. If the owners will have us, we would love to stay there again.

        This cottage was perfect for the wedding weekend events we attended. Cozy and quiet. Thank you!

        4/5 Good

          Clean and very roomy.

          Hidden from the road, quiet and spacious. Could accommodate 6 or more with the sofa used as a bed.
