Property description

We have a nicely appointed 2 bedroom apartment located above a detached garage. You'll have a carport to park under, a furnished deck, one queen and one double bed, a complete kitchen, washer/dryer, and satellite tv. The view from the living room window is of an oak forest that feels like a park. Located close to freeway, grocery store, and restaurants. There are amazing wineries for tasting and many rafting companies for adventures on the American river.

Our two-bedroom 900 sq ft comfortably furnished guest apartment sits above a detached garage on five secluded oak filled acres ten minutes from historic downtown placerville. The apartment has one queen size and one full size bed, a well stocked kitchen, dining area, bathroom with tub shower and stackable washer/dryer, living area with satellite television, some classic board games, and a reading nook with a unique selection of books. At an elevation of 1300 feet, we are above the fog and below the snow.

If you’re looking to get away from it all, this may be what you are looking for. Our property is peaceful and beautiful yet conveniently located close to grocery shopping and restaurants. We are close to many of El Dorado county’s attractions including apple hill, which has over 50 ranches including fruit growers, bake shops, award winning wineries and the Jack Russell brewery. At night you could take your chance at the Red Hawk casino or if that is not your style the community observatory is open Friday through Sunday evenings where you can see a little bit of heaven in the foothills through their large telescopes. Or perhaps just enjoy the night sky while lounging on the apartment deck with a glass of wine.

A fifteen-minute drive will find you in Coloma along the south fork of the American river where rafting companies will guide you along its meandering course toward Folsom lake. Coloma is where James Marshall first discovered gold in California in 1848 and today it is a tourist attraction known for its ghost town, which is the centerpiece of the Marshall Gold Discovery state historic park. Another piece of gold rush history can be found at Gold Bug park and mine just one mile north of Main street in Placerville.
