Placerville house description
This beautiful house is located on 5 acres in Cameron Park Estates in El Dorado County in the Sierra Foothills. It is half an hour from Sacramento and 15 minutes from historic Placerville. It is also near Folsom Lake and Coloma where Gold was first discovered. It is a unique place to observe wildlife such as hawks, deer, and wild turkeys. The deck offers stunning views over the 5 acres covered with old oak trees, and the fruit tree orchard next to the house. It is a wonderful place to hang out, relax, watch the children play and enjoy nature, while you're just 5 minutes away from restaurants, and shopping.
If you like to be active, there are many opportunities such as visiting museums, gold mines and antique stores and the many excellent wineries in the El Dorado and Amador County.
You can also go biking, boating, bathing in the American River, hiking, exploring caves. The choices are endless. In the winter this property is conveniently located one hour from Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort. A day trip to beautiful Lake Tahoe takes only one hour and a half.

We keep coming back!
We keep coming back!
This is one of those magical places that we keep on returning to. Peaceful, spacious, relaxing, and at the same time just a short distance from a variety of things to do - from whitewater rafting in the summer to skiing in the winter. Over Thanksgiving this year we visited the salmon farm near Folsom Lake. Over the holidays this year we enjoyed peaceful and harmonious family time. There is so much space for the kids to be active out of doors. We enjoy the calm of the morning watching the birds over our first cup of coffee. If you are looking for a place to get together with family or friends, where there are things to do close by, I can highly recommend this place!

Owner response: Thank you so much for staying at our home and for the great review. We are happy to hear you enjoy this lovely place as much as we do.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is big and comfortable and it is surrounded by beautiful countryside. It was a great place for our family to get together for Christmas. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied. The owners were helpful and very easy to work with. I highly recommend.

Owner response: Thank you! We like sharing our house with responsible people like you, and who appreciate the beautiful setting as much as we do. :-).
A most comfortable stay.
A most comfortable stay.
We rented this lovely home to attend a family reunion in No. California. We came from the East Coast and this property was so convenient to Sacremento, Placerville and the Lake Tahoe area where family lives. We had 6 adults and an infant in the house and we were extremely comfortable. There were ample bedrooms and the kitchen and dining area allowed for many home cooked meals to be prepared easily and conveniently. The property was gorgeous and provided a peaceful, relaxing setting to catch up with our family throughout the week. We never felt crowded in the home and it was convenient to shopping, the Sacremento airport and most important, our family. We would not hesitate to rent this home again or recommend it to friends. It was everything it purported to be and the price was extremely reasonable. One thing I would mention for folks to consider is catching the BayLinks Ferry in Vallejo to San Francisco. The trip to Vallejo takes about an hour and a half and the ferry to San Fran takes an hour. The price is reasonable, the ferry not crowded and at the end of a long day, you can enjoy a glass of wine on the return trip to Vallejo. Many thanks to the owners for all their assistance from setting up the rental to providing recreational information. We hope to return in the future.

We have stayed at this place in spring, fall and winter. It is a beautiful property with lots of space for the kids to explore. I LOVE the kitchen. It's not your typical vacation home kitchen but very well equipped with high end appliances. We've done wineries in the area, hikes in the mountains and skiing at Sierra at Tahoe (which is only about an hour drive). Imagine skiing all day and sipping a glass of wine in the afternoon on the deck overlooking beautiful blossoming cherry trees!!

We have stayed at Cherry Tree Ranch twice and I highly recommend it. It is a wonderful place to relax and renew. It is quiet, beautiful, peaceful and there are many wonderful walks and bike rides you can take without getting in your car. The house is situated on a lovely piece of property with a deck for relaxing and dining that overlooks a beautiful cherry orchard. It is close to Sutter Creek, Amador and many wonderful wineries.
