                                When I arrived at Walker's Cabin it was already dark outside. The owner's had arranged to have the lights on my stay started and continued for the next few days without a hitch. The place was immaculate with everything I would need or want. Instructions were well thoughtout and easy to follow when needed. I hope to return again and again over the years enjoying every season. I would not hesitate to recommend this location for folks in need of a retreat. Thank you.

                                We couldn't have been more pleased as we drove up to the Walker's Cabin. Charming, quaint, warm, cozy ............. From the moment we walked in the door to the music playing and the fresh daffodils on the table, we knew our hostess was about to make this weekend perfect for us! We dined on homemade French Onion Soup, drank Champagne, strolled by the pond, hiked the trails and hot tubbed numerous times ... early morning hot tubbing with coffee looking out at the beautiful trees started each day! We were so taken by all the little perfections that Valeri had added to make her property and the cabin so inviting and charming. Our only disappointment was that we only booked 2 nites ... we will definitely be returning for a 3 nite stay!!!

                                Great setting, beautiful grounds, well appointed cabin. Just far enough out of town, but close enough to Placerville as well. The property also offers a great little trail system that will satisfy even those searching for a long hike or run. This is a great place for a family or two couples to enjoy. We had an absolute blast and were sad to leave.

                                This was an absolutely wonderful cabin to stay in. It was immaculately cleaned, the kitchen was great to cook in, the beds were comfortable, beautifully remodeled bathroom and kitchen and best of all--decks around the house with amazing views. This cabin in located on 100 acres with loads of trails (very clearly marked and printed maps available). There is a hot tub too, so at night you can sit and relax and watch the stars. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting some peace and quiet.

                                Having visited twenty six foreign countries, I am a veteran traveler and I've stayed at hundreds of accommodations over the years. Walker's Cabin certainly ranks high on my list of most memorable destinations. My niece and her friend, both from the mid west, and myself recently spent two wonderful nights at Walker's Cabin. To be honest, when the time came to move on to our next destination on our one week tour of northern California we really hated leaving this beautiful wooded mountain retreat. The cabin itself was immaculately clean and well furnished in a comfortable "country cabin" motif. The large deck off the living area was one of two decks that adjoined the cabin. That large deck, furnished with subtle outdoor lighting, dinning set, large gas grill and a hot tub served as a nightly dinning and outdoor gathering spot to discuss the days travels through beautiful Gold Country. Nearby, a short walk down the proverbial "country lane" we found a water wonderland in the form of a large pond that was appointed with so many creature comforts that, at first, we thought we had somehow been transported to a luxury resort.! Numerous cushy deck and lounge chairs, a sand beach, water fall and a covered outdoor kitchen complete with sink and ample counter space adjoined the pond. To top it all off there was a state of the art sound system (radio) and a note to visitors to "amp it up!" For hiking enthusiasts (us!) a detailed map of the trails located on the 100 acre estate was found in the cabin. No need to get in the car and drive miles to a trailhead, these well maintained and interesting trails began just outside our front door! Would I return to Walker's? It's not a matter of if, but when.

                                I stayed here with a couple of friends over a fall weekend and we had such an amazing time. The property is beautiful and so much. We wish we had a longer stay to see it all. Make sure you bring a bathing suit for the hot tub and be sure to check out the pond. Bring some CDs too because there is an awesome music system at the pond bbq area. We will be back for sure!

                                What a wonderful place to stay. Everything you'll need is here. Just bring your supplies and you're ready to use the well appointed kitchen for great meals is a super private Retreat! Then it's off to the Hot Tub in the evening for Star Watching. We saw 4 Shooting Stars in one evening. Also went Whitewater rafting with River Runners which was a blast! Can't say enough good things about this place! We'll be back!

                                We had a wonderful time at this house and the list of amazing amenities is long. The house itself is very functional with a nice open kitchen and many options for cooking. The BBQ outside is outstanding and extremely convenient. We stayed here with a total of 5 people and we were very comfortable. There is a nice mister outside on the porch and a great pergola with lights for sitting under on a cool evening. The pond and entertainment area are quite impressive. You literally have a beach to yourself with deer and hummingbirds keeping you company. We would absolutely stay at this place again and the price is very reasonable. We were attending a wedding in Coloma which was only 4 miles away and we were so thankful that we didn't stay in the Super 8 or some dumpy cabin on the river. You will love this place.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                              Year Purchased: 1995

                              About the owner: I moved our family from the city to the country. We love the variety of trees and animals which live in the Sierra foothills. Below the snow line, above the fog, out of the rat race! We love animals both domestic and wild. I can enjoy riding my horses on my own land with over 5 miles of groomed trails. It's an oasis of privacy and beauty which is kept natural.

                              Why the Owner Chose Placerville:
                              In a word, VARIETY! On 100 acres you will see a Norwegian Pine forest, lush green meadows of wildflowers dotted with giant Oak trees, ridgetop vistas with 360 degree views, and Christmas tree forests of white fir and cedar.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              Just 9 miles from Placerville it's convenient and private. The area is not heavily populated, surrounded by BLM land, local orchards, farms and vineyards. It's a jewel we have perfected for almost 20 years.
