About the property

Placerville Gold Country & High Sierra, California, USA ACCOMMODATIONS: House,

The Stage Coach Stop was built in 1872 by a man named Petri Cola. He and his wife were very involved and well-liked by the town’s people of Placerville, “Old Hangtown”. There were two mine shafts on the property (gold and diamond) and it also had a saw mill on site at one time. The house and property were used in the 1997 Stephen Baldwin movie; Mr. Murder, and the grounds are a crowd favorite in the annual Placerville Garden Tour, showcasing three water features, including Koi ponds and waterfalls. The house is a 2400 sq. ft., two level home with a 1000 sq. ft. multi-level back deck overlooking Weber Creek (which is known by all local gold panners and trout fishermen) The deck is perfect for morning coffee, outdoor dining and cocktails. While enjoying the view, check out the remarkable year-round wildlife that this 7 acre protected habitat maintains, including River Otters, Raccoons, Deer, Fox, Ducks, Red Tail Hawks, Great Blue Herons, Belted King Fishers, Hummingbirds, Rainbow Trout, Crawdads, Frogs, and Dragonflies. Continue to explore the grounds which include a creek side outdoor wine bar, rustic dining area and fireplace, great for winetasting and family barbeques. Cross the covered foot bridge to a grassy area, perfect for picnics and afternoon naps. The property also has several perfect creekside areas for anyone that loves to fall asleep in nature to the sound of flowing water. Two gazebos are on site, one accessible by a bridge, located on an island, the other is nestled in majestic trees, overlooking the view, both perfect for relaxing and taking it all in.

About Renee Boyatt

Moving from Miami, FL in 1999, we were looking for a place that was near the city, but secluded and away from it all. We really wanted to be close to the coast, but also close to the ski resorts. We love river rafting, camping,wine tasting and the great outdoors, and were blessed to find this unique, historic, hidden treasure, tucked away in our own private vacation retreat!

Renee Boyatt purchased this house in 1999

Awesome for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people get together for a friend's birthday weekend. The location was awesome, lots of beds and spaces to hang out. The kitchen is great for a large group. I usually find it so hard to cook in a kitchen with a large group of people because everyone wants to hang out in the kitchen. This kitchen is great because it is big enough that if half the people are in the kitchen they don't really get in the way!

The outside areas are really great too. Lots of space to explore and an outdoor seating area too! I wish we had brought some lounge chairs so we could sit by the creek and read. Now we know for next time!

Everyone loved the space and agreed that the next group weekend trip we do should be back at the same place.

The enchanted forest wedding of my dreams

  • 5 of 5

First of all Let me start by saying how helpful and friendly renee and michael are !!!!!, withouth them my wedding wouldnt of been half as special lol. they rented that beautiful historic home to me and my bridal party for the weekend of 9/29 -10/1/2017 for my wedding. michael the ownermet us there at our check in time and showed us all the ins and outs of the house and the property, making sure we had ladders and blowers all the tools we might need. the home was the perfect size for my wedding of about 85 people could probably fit 110 and still be comfortable. there was plenty of room to sleep my bridal party and parents. we set up friday befor the wedding and let me tell you this property is absolutly breathtaking especially when the sun goes down and the 10,000 + twinkle lights they have wrapped the trees with come on. the next day was my wedding, michael showed up 4 hours before. met with my dj and helped him set up, he directed my caterer to the correct area and showed them how to set up. when my guests arrived michael and his children helped park cars and directed my elderly guest to an easier path for unloading. when my guests were finished eating michael's 2 boys helped clear and scrap all our rental plates, he literally helped with everything and even came back the next morning and helped clean up. i truly felt cared about. michael and renee cared about our wedding and bent over backwards to help us.

the venue it self is adorable. its clean and the decor is with the time period, its like ste4pping back in time when you enter this home. you can tell the have alot of pride in there property and do everything to maintain it. all of my guests were impressed. the grounds are landscaped to feel like and enchanted forest, with the babbaling brook and old stone gazebo, the lights in the trees and the old time furniture, its like walking thru a fairytale. if i never had to leave this place it would be to soon.

all of my guest asked how i found this place and that it was the most beautiful place they had ever seen, my dj who had done hundreds of weddings even said he had never seen anything like it. it is truely unique,

so to sum it up. great house great property amazing owners, most beautiful romantic wedding ever. if i could give 100 stars i would!!! you need to see this place in your lifetime trust me.

signed One happy bride and groom
