Garden Valley Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate Home - 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10+)

We invite you to be our guest!

A place where you dare to dream and believe in the magic of 'Yester-Year'.

The Manor Home is a private retreat tucked away in one of the loveliest areas of El Dorado County, with easy access to dozens of El Dorado County wineries. While secluded, it is only minutes away from where gold was discovered near the American River in Coloma, California. Coloma is known for its Class II-III rafting and kayaking of the Southern Fork of the American River.

The picturesque setting of the Manor and Vineyards is set in a lovely and private setting with natural wild life and breathtaking panoramic 360 degree views of snow capped Sierra Mountains, Sacramento Valley, Folsom Lake and Mt. Diablo. The expansive outdoor decking and gardens are framed by large windows and sliding glass doors. An outdoor Victorian gazebo invites you to sip some of our favorite wine. At sunset, the colors can change from deep golden yellows to rich rust colors as the sun sets behind the hills. The open skies will provide dramatic celestial evenings.

This is a family owned and operated property carrying on the tradition of graciousness in a setting far removed from the fast pace 'hussle-bussle' of modern life! You will enjoy the privacy and peacefulness of the this fantastic gated home.

Cleaning and catering can be provided on a daily basis for an additional fee.

It is less then one hour from Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. After fun in the sun you can also relax at the newest Casino in El Dorado County. This property is helicopter accessible.

(Please ask for details)

We are here to help you plan that perfect 'get-away'!

The most difficult decision you will have to make is..... when to leave!

What makes this estate unique

Local rafting companies are easily accessible for hired guided trips on the American River. If you have your own equipment, you can run any number of sections down the river. Kayaking and inner tubing are also available. There is an eight mile section (Class III) from Chili bar down to Coloma, with a 4 mile Class II section from Coloma to Greenwood. The final 9 mile Class III section will take you down to Folsom Lake. After a day of fun and sun, you can easily enjoy the night life of the Casino or become star struck while watching the moon rise over the Sierra Mountains.

Excellent place for a bachelor party!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! In planning my brother's bachelor party, I was looking for a place to rent that could accommodate 9 guys (...and guys are usually averse to sharing beds) for a river rafting weekend. I couldn't have chosen a better place. There were more beds and couches for sleeping than we needed, a well-appointed kitchen, and a beautiful grand room with lots of space to hang out, play games, watch movies, have a few drinks, and watch the sun set over the high sierras. BJ was super helpful throughout the planning process and during the weekend itself, and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed.

The place is secluded enough to feel like you're in a special place, but close enough to nearby Placerville if you want to find restaurants and so on (The Independent was great for dinner; Sweetie Pie's was great for breakfast), and the Local Take-and-Bake Pizzeria was delicious.

And as a bonus, the house is decorated with a Disney theme. It's understated - with the exception of the Mickey room - but once you really look around you start to see all the Disney flourishes everywhere. I didn't realize that while booking the place, but it ended up being a nice coincidence, as my brother is also obsessed with all things Disney.

Great place for big groups, bachelor/ette parties, families, or even just a getaway for a couple. Can't want to come back.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We had not much clue about the property when we booked, we were informed the house is decorated for the season, but were totally taken by surprise to see how beautifully it was decorated. We had a warm welcome and had all the facilities in the house we could think of. The place was magical and we had a great Thanksgiving !!

Photos dont do it justice...

This is my first review of any property. The place is that good. My daughter was getting married in Coloma so the Manor served as our headquaters for 12 guest. Never felt crowded. We got there after dark so our first view was a spectacularly lit house with the owner under the arbor entrance, champagne in hand. BJ gave us a though tour of the house, which was appreciated.

We served dinner for six and breakfast for 12 while we were there. This is the most completely equiped kitchen I have ever found in a rental. Even used the large gas grill- nice bonus.

The house is tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and decorated throughout. We all were still finding hidden details on the last day of our stay. We all enjoyed the outdoor music, especially in the morning with our coffee. The gazebo was a perfect place to find quiet (I wrote my father of the bride toast there). Did I mention the breath taking views - literally in every direction you looked. All of our guest commented.

A couple of things to fix- need a larger trash can in the kitchen; surprisingly, no dresser in the master bedroom( I m sure BJ is even now hauling something out of her magic warehouse to remedy this).

Would I go back? In a flash. This is the perfect spot for family gatherings- I want to spend Thanksgiving there as soon as soon as we are lucky enough to have grandkids.

Thankyou BJ for helping make our daughters wedding go smoothly. Your beautiful home met all our needs and far exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: How kind and thoughtful of you to say such nice things! It was our pleasure to have you and your family as "Our Guests". It gives us great satisfaction to know that you will return to make new memories with your family especially during the Holiday Season! Holiday Time is always exciting at the vineyard. Christmas decorations appear everywhere in and around the Manor Home. We have a completely decorated Christmas tree in the entryway which is almost 14 feet tall. The festive sights and sounds will surely make you merry! We would love for you to come celebrate the magic of the holiday season at the Enchanted Holiday Mountain. You are correct! No sooner did I see your wonderful words, and I was off to my "Magical Warehouse"! Both issues have been corrected, and I appreciate your feedback! We are all about making "Wishes and Dreams come true" and it is our goal to exceed your expectations. We trust we succeeded! We thank you for your business, and all of us are looking forward to seeing you again real soon! The Rome Valley Team.
