Gold Country Deck House has a charming private master bedroom with its own private bath and view. Eat out or in -- a fully furnished kitchen -- everything from a cork pull to a gas BBQ. Take in the hundred-mile view to the west -- end the day with a magnificent sunset. On cool nights, brush off the chill with a fire in the wood stove. Ideally suited for a secluded getaway, a jumping off point to explore wine country and historic Coloma, or kicking back with friends on the decks.
Built to take advantage of natural light, the Deck House kitchen's eating nook fills with morning sun. Step out of the kitchen to a wood deck and majestic oak trees that shade the south side of the Deck House. Built to take advantage of the view, the second deck extends the length of the house to the west overlooking the rolling foothills; on a clear day you can see the coastal range, Mount Diablo and the Sutter Buttes. Relax in the living room by the wood stove, watch TV, listen to music, or simply enjoy the view in the peace and quiet.
Master bedroom with a four-poster queen bed and its own bath has sliding doors that open to the west deck and views of the Sierra foothills; antique Pine furniture and TV. Den with sliding door can sleep two on a queen futon Sofabed or floor futons.

High school sweethearts, we met at El Dorado High School in Placerville. We purchased the Deck House from my parents who built the home in 1970 and remodeled it for a vacation rental. Always a favorite for the extended family, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandchildren, everyone loves coming to Gold Country Deck House.
The Owner purchased this house in 1998
My Dad loves to tell the story of finding a contractor to build this house at the price he could afford. Dad hauled in the rocks for the fireplace and stone walls from a nearby quarry. The large rocks with the manzanita tree were hauled in Dad's pickup truck and the truck skimmed the roadway with its overweight load. Dad makes sure everyone knows how he situated the home on the property to take advantage of the shade of the oak trees in summertime, morning sun and the views year round. The Deck House includes family history.
We love sunsets at Gold Country Deck House. We love the proximity to historic downtown Placerville and its shops, antique stores, art galleries and cafes. We love the country ambiance, the secluded natural setting. In summertime, we drive to the American River to swim, have BBQ's, drive to Coloma to Marshall Gold Discovery Park. September begins Apple Hill season and visits to orchards, wineries and farms. November finds us visiting the Christmas Tree Farms. December we love wood fires and proximity to cross country skiing and Lake Tahoe downhill skiing. In spring, Daffodil Hill makes a spectacular display. Always there are farms and vendors of locally grown fruits and vegetables.
Thanks for sharing your home. Great river rafting, nice view, but someone should kill that rooster. Greg
Please disregard the rooster comment He was just kidding. We love animals! Thank you for the beautiful view. Josephine
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. This trip marked the first time my boyfriend and I went away together and even more importantly, the first time he got to meet my family. What a wonderful place for us all to spend time together. I love how full of history your home is and I hope it becomes a long-standing part of ours as well. Alexa
Our family stayed here as our home-base for our daughters wedding at the Sequoia Mansion in Placerville. The home was everything we hoped for. Many decks provided peaceful moments! It had VERY comfortable beds. And the views were spectacular. I would definitely recommend this property.
This was our first visit at the Deck House and we were quite pleased. The kitchen is stocked with nearly everything you could need for cooking/baking. Since it was just the two of us, we used the upper floor which was very roomy and comfortable. If the weather had been warmer, we'd have spent a long time on the deck watching the sunset!
We came up to this property with another couple for New Years to just get away. We cooked dinners, enjoyed the fireplace, played games and took in the nice views. It was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of space and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing I was surprised by was the basement where the ping pong table is not finished - but at least the bedroom down there is.
Overall a great stay, thank you!
This was like going to Grandma's house in the mountains on a rainy weekend. After going to Apple Hill and cutting our Christmas tree, we were able to come home light a fire, bake an apple pie and enjoy a nice comfortable evening. The kids enjoyed playing ping pong and the piano. every thing we needed was there at the house.
This house truly made for a very cozy weekend
Was a very cozy spot with gorgeous western facing view. The sunsets were so nice. Will definitely be a return guest . Thank you so much
This was our second year staying at the Gold Country Deck house for a week. We love it! It is a comfortable, well equipped house with a wonderful outdoor deck and views to die for. We watch the deer in the morning and at dusk. The owners are so nice and communication is excellent. We will be returning again!
