This lovely cottage outside Placerville proved to be a wonderful and relaxing home away from home for the weekend. I was most impressed by the huge outdoor deck, with two table to dine at as well as a sitting area out of the sun. A big oak tree on the property and a view of the river below completes the scenic atmosphere. Also- the kitchen is excellent for cooking and absolutely STOCKED with amenities. We brought our own food of course, but the owners and past guests have obviously left kitchen basics (and then some) behind for others to use. From olive oil to bottled water, to snack mix and coffee, there were items there in case you forgot anything. The living room had a huge flat screen tv, lots of DVD choices, and lots of books to peruse. The beds and shower/jacuzzi tub were comfy and there were tons of towels as well as laundry facilities on site. Only drawbacks- no wi-fi service set up yet, and no grill. Other than that, an excellent value for the price! Would definitely recommend.
