About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
The cottage décor is Wine Country and Sierra Mountain inspired, giving guests the true feel of the region. Completely furnished and equipped with all the comforts of a first class accommodation, your stay at the cottage is sure to leave you pleasantly surprised.
The property is heavily vegetated and dotted with granite rock outcroppings, huge walnut and cedar trees, as well as old stone walls that provide charm and ambiance to the grounds. Private and serene you can enjoy outdoor barbecuing in your private back yard, or just lounge under the trees and enjoy a glass of wine and a good book.
If you enjoy evening or morning walks you can head out the front gate to either side and pass along vineyard laden roadsides and various horse pastures. And for those that are inspired by walks with purpose you may even choose to stroll up to a vineyard to enjoy a tasting and or picnic!

TIPS ON TRIPS!
If you have time after discovering Fair Play, Definitely go to Apple Hill
You have to go through Placerville to get to Apple Hill, Placerville 'Old hang Town' is great to walk! shops, galleries and antique stores.
Placerville is only (say a 20 minute drive) from the cottage. Apple Hill is just next to (or actually part of) Placerville area.
My favorite restaurant in Downtown Placerville is Powells Steamer House-Get the Oyster Pan Roast-on Sundays they usually have a little Jazz Trio. The Sequoia is nice also...its historic and its nice to sit on porch for lunch! for quick food 'Z-Pie' is great on a side street down from Powells on Main.
My favorite winery in Apple Hill is Boeger (on the El Dorado Wine Trail) see maps at cottage in basket! Madrona and Lava Cap are great too. Get an apple pie at Boa Vista Orchards!
If you have more time go through Shenandoah Valley/Amador wine regions and even on to Sutter Creek, there are maps in cottage to this area, and its only 30 minutes away. There are some fabulous new wineries being built in this region.
Ski and board in Lake Tahoe, the closest is Sierra at Tahoe Just a 50 minute drive.
Go to Old Town Folsom for lunch and walk the old time streets. Hop Sing Palace is the best Asian food I have ever had!

About the owner: Living in Fair Play was my life's dream and now I'm able to help others discover how wonderful the area and it's people are! Come be my guest and let me help you and yours to a most enjoyable vacation experience. If you like come pet the horses B.W. and Cody 'Big Boy'. You can see them gallivanting about through the cottage windows. They love to get attention so bring some carrots or apples.
Why the Owner Chose Somerset, CA, USA:
I love wine and I love horses. This area has over 45 wineries to visit, and horse ranches everywhere. The weather is wonderful and the countryside beautiful. I also love to ski in Tahoe for the day or go to San Francisco overnight, everything I love is so close yet we are tucked away from the bustle.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can walk to Perry Creek and Windwalker wineries! The roadways are rolling so taking walks along the Fair Play 'wine loop' is easy for anyone.
