Why John Fuhler chose Placerville

What makes this Cabin unique
Animals frequently come right up to the house whether you are inside or out. Sometimes I feel like I am a guest at their place, we are the visitors in their environment. We live off the grid here. The power comes from the wind and the sun. You feel so much more in tune with the world around you here.

Amazing off-grid property, poor timing.
This was a beautiful place with incredible views and a proficient off grid energy system. My husband and I had a wonderful 3.5 days of our weeklong stay. But on the morning of our 4th day, the septic tank overflowed into the basement toilet and tub. Due to the remote location of the house and the limited services in the area, no one was able to come and pump it out for 48 hours. This meant we could not use the toilets, run any water, bathe, use the washing machine, dishwasher, etc. during that two days. The owner offered to let us stay in the guest house of another property he owned that was being rented by another family on vacation, but the reason we chose this place was for the 78 acres of peace and privacy so we didn’t take him up on that offer. We also didn’t want to impose on another family’s vacation. It was a very difficult 2 days for us, to say the least, and we were disappointed that the owner didn’t offer us a partial refund. We understand that things happen, but considering a number of the advertised services were not available to us during that 48 hour period, we really didn’t get what we paid for. That said, we still had a very good trip and can’t emphasize enough how scenic the property and area are. Had we not had the incident with the septic overflowing, I would give the property a glowing 5-star review. It is a wonderful place to spend time.
Wow and relaxing
The views on this property are amazing. Home's atmosphere lends itself to unplug from the worlds worries and be at peace with nature. My family enjoyed the ping-pong table, bonfire and watching the wild life each day!
One of the best properties I have stayed at. Amazing view and property.

Excellent location and amazing home
We enjoyed staying in this home for our family vacation. It was great to be in an off grid environment with no television, wifi, etc. The wind and solar power systems were easy to figure out and manage.
The house was an excellent jumping off point to Telluride, Ouray, and even a day trip to Mesa Verde. Excellent access to hiking, climbing, and horseback riding for the kids.
Excellent views of the mountains, stars, and wildlife.
Outstanding mountain cabin with the most impressive view!
This is the second time we have stayed at the cabin and it was as incredible as our memories served. Both times we had some of our children and grandchildren with us. They were warned that it is off the grid, and no TV, and they didn't miss out on anything! We enjoyed watching the elk in the meadow, about 35 on several occasions, at sunrise and sunset. The cabin was very clean and well-furnished. There are many condiments and supplies so that you don't have to pack and/or buy everything! We were pleased to find more screens on the windows to help cool the cabin during periods of higher temperatures. We enjoyed walking the property and felt we were all alone in this wonderful place. Watching the stars on a clear night from the back deck is the most beautiful and serene experience - along with the famous mountain ranges, clear air and blue skies!! The cabin is very affordable when you consider all you are getting!
The view here is spectacular. The house is oriented to take in the mountain and mesa views from the sunroom, deck and patios to the South and West. With the cabin overlooking the meadow on the side of the ridge, animals frequently come out to drink in the creek at sun up and sun down.
