Beautiful and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a conference my husband and I attended. We couldn't have been more pleased with the arrangements. The first thing I noticed as how clean it was. Even though it was attached to a larger house which was also rented out, our place was quiet and relaxing. My niece came to stay for a few nights and found the foldout futon to be quite comfortable. We definitely would consider again!!!!

We spent our 1 year anniversary at Casita d'Amore. I can not express in words what an amazing experience this was. Dona's hospitality was more than anyone could ask for. The Apartment that we stayed on was off of the main house with a view of the lake from both rooms. It was super clean and a the furniture was updated and comfortable. When we arrived she had stocked the refrigerator with fresh Orange Juice and Free range eggs that I believe came from her ranch. There was champagne and chocolates along with a few other snacks as well. She provided us with coffee beans and half and half as well. They had everything we needed for appliances and cooking if we wanted to stay in the whole time we were there. They also left us some pasta and sauce in case we wanted to stay in for dinner one night as well. They made all the necessary toiletries availiable in case you forgot something. On top of that the shampoo and conditioner were high quality to wear I will never use my old brand again. I thought I had a comfortable bed at home... I have to find out where they got this one. It was like sleeping on a cloud perfectly made for our bodies. She checked with us to see if we wanted beach chairs and towels to sit by the lake. I did not know if we had worked this into our trip but she brought them by just in case. I am sure I am missing some of the details of this fantastic stay but we were blessed to have found this place. It is located close to whatever you need and Dona provides a list of places to check out. If you are considering visiting Folsom you want to choose this spot.
