Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for giving us an opportunity to stay in your vacation home. It was a very memorable experience. We had such a comfortable stay and the house was so well equipped with everything we needed. Clearly, you both are very good hosts and we cannot wait to come back and enjoy some summer days on the river.

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! First time visiting Apple Hill and we would love to make it an annual thing. The house suited our needs perfectly. The owner gave perfect directions to the house that we were really grateful for as we were arriving very late!!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time. Kitchen is stocked with all appliances you'd need for your stay. Living room is much more spacious than what it seemed in the pictures. Awesome to have the fire pit! We enjoyed our time!

Quiet country setting.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house in a quiet country setting. We were here for a 5 generation Thanksgiving reunion and very much enjoyed our stay here. The owners are very nice and were great when we had a problem with our arrival time. Unfortunately, the weather was too cold to enjoy the beautiful yard and grill. We did see deer and a lot of wild turkeys in the area. We usually stay with family in the area, but if the occasion ever arises that we need a place to stay, we would certainly try to stay here again.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, warm and inviting! From the moment our family pulled in the driveway it felt like we had all come home. The backyard was fantastic for our dogs and the inside of the house was perfect for morning play time with our daughter and niece. Big thank you to John and Paula for creating such an amazing environment for our family trip! Will be renting from them again!

There are local wineries in the Coloma Valley. Apple Hill opens the end of August and there are crafters, food vendors, as well as lots of Apple Farms. Placerville is a fun town to shop and eat. Placerville Hardware store is a must see. One of the oldest Hardware stores around.

Also, Gold Bug Mine in Placerville is another Historic site.
