Five Stars All The Way

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, spacious and homey. Everything you need is here. Very clean, with beautiful views out every window. The home is lovely and very well equipped. If you want peace and quiet this is the place. Enjoy the wild life (turkeys, deer and lots of birds!) I'd give this retreat 10 star if I could.

Perfect place for a special weekend

  • 5 of 5

We are four grown children of a now-94 year old Dad who grew up in Placerville and wanted to return for a visit. We gathered from different parts of California and made our way to Fair Play -- a perfect headquarters for our two night visit. Peaceful location and a comfortable home with large rooms and plenty of space. The house was spotlessly clean and had a well equipped kitchen. We spread out, enjoyed the patio and the home and had a magical time. Traipsed the beautiful area and nearby towns by day and relaxed by night. Owner Cammy was amazing -- checking in ahead of time, trading names and stories of people my Dad might have known (he did!) and taking a personal interest in us. Thank you for a most memorable weekend.

Great Place for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fair Play was a great place for four girlfriends to spend some time wine tasting and chilling out. We spent 3 nights at Perry Creek Retreat and each of us having our own rooms was great. The kitchen was a great asset to fix breakfast and a couple of other meals. We would definitely go again. Really clean and well taken care of. Wine tasting in that area was really nice as they didn't charge for wineries in El Dorado country and were all really nice.

Fantastic place in wine country.

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend at Perry Creek and it was absolutely amazing. It's quiet, set far from the road for privacy and is in the heart of gorgeous wine country. The house is super spacious with a nice backyard and has its own fire stove in the living room. I would highly recommend staying here if you're planning on a getaway in El Dorado wine country, you will not be disappointed!

Ladies Passport 2017

  • 5 of 5

The Perry Creek Retreat was a gem . Set on a private drive far enough from the road for the peace and quite of the country but not difficult at all to get to. The property was beautiful , we even saw a few deer out the window during dinner . The house is very spacious and well stocked . Also very close to a great selection of wineries to explore . My group of girls had a fantastic time and cannot wait to return next year .
