This newly refurbished cottage has a private bedroom plus a sleeper sofa in the living room, and a fully stocked kitchen. We are located in the Sierra foothills halfway between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe, in the Apple Hill area near Placerville, directly across the road from El Dorado County’s oldest winery. Several other wineries with wine tasting and picnic areas are also nearby.

The space

Our cottage has been carefully designed for a cozy and comfortable feeling. The wrap-around deck provides great sunset views, and is also a great place for breakfast or that first cup of coffee. The living room, which has a sleeper sofa with a Memory Foam mattress, has French doors that open onto the spacious deck. There is a cozy dining area next to the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped whether you want to cook your meals, or just want to have a quick cup of coffee from the Keurig coffee maker. The bedroom, which features a Queen sized bed with upgraded mattress, also has French doors leading onto the deck. Outside is an inviting picnic area under the canopy of a large pine and oak tree, bordered by a small bamboo grove, with a Weber barbecue available for your use. However you choose to spend your time in our beautiful area, we would very much like to share our home with you.

We enjoyed the accomodations. The home was very clean. The extra thoughtful touches of cheese, yougurt, water bottles, coffee, tea and ready to bake cookie dough were very nice! Home and hospitality exceeded our expectations.

This is a magical cottage. I knew from the website it was going to be a great place to stay, but it was even more delightful than I expected. Larry and Howard have done an incredible job in making this a charming stop. It's immaculately clean, decorated with great style, and located in this lovely, private, wooded setting surrounded by gardens, yet it's very conveniently located to Apple Hill, wineries and downtown Placerville. It seems they've thought of every need one might have and have included many special touches to make your stay even nicer. They are fabulous hosts! I would go back in a heartbeat.

Nice and clean. Funky, eclectic style. Small space but perfect for two. Keurig coffee, muffin mix, cheese, cookie dough! We came down for our anniversary weekend and I wanted a place we could linger and hang out. This was made easy with the wonderful view from the deck. Great place! Will stay here again.

What a lovely place! Highly recommend staying here. Gracious hosts. Beautiful deck overlooking mature trees, garden paths, soothing fountains and a touch of whimsy in the various sitting areas and throughout the grounds. Close to many wineries -our favorites were Nello Olivos and Fenton Harriott. Very close to apple farms.

Delightful place for a restful getaway, yet close to all the attractions in the Apple Hill area.

What a perfect home to get away from it all, enjoy Apple Hill, and enjoy some beautiful scenery! Larry and Howard are the perfect hosts and they have thought of every detail from inside the home to the lush, beautiful scenery outside the home. The wrap around porch where we ate breakfast every morning to the high quality Linens and even cookie dough waiting for us in the fridge. Larry and Howard thought of it all!
