This beautiful house is located on 5 acres in Cameron Park Estates in El Dorado County in the Sierra Foothills. It is half an hour from Sacramento and 15 minutes from historic Placerville. It is also near Folsom Lake and Coloma where Gold was first discovered. It is a unique place to observe wildlife such as hawks, deer, and wild turkeys. The deck offers stunning views over the 5 acres covered with old oak trees, and the fruit tree orchard next to the house. It is a wonderful place to hang out, relax, watch the children play and enjoy nature, while you're just 5 minutes away from restaurants, and shopping.

Perfect and as advertised. It was beautiful, fun and safe for kids. Will stay again for sure.
The home is nestled in the rolling hills with a small creek running through the property yet it is close to Cameron Park. We were comfortable in the home and slept like babies in the King bed. There is a dual head shower in the master and a tub. There were ample kitchen utensils and we cooked and ate ourselves through a rainy weekend. We watched deer, turkeys and birds in the rain.
My only minor complaint is the couches looked a little worn. Other than that, this home was perfect,, comfortable, well stocked and restful. The walk "around the block" is worth renting the property as the surrounding area is spectacularly beautiful. Our adult children have asked when we will be returning.
This property was perfect for our stay for a family gathering The accommodations were as stated, upstairs master bedroom is perfect for the couple that needs privacy. The downstairs bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, sleeping 7 comfortably. We used this home as a gathering place for the week to celebrate our mom's life. The location is quiet but very convenient to any stores you would need. The space accommodates a lot of people, inside and out. The outside space has deer and turkeys, orchard and large grass area. The kitchen is fully stocked and perfect for multiple cooks. We did call the owner a few times and she was very patient and helpful. Highly recommend this retreat for our family gatherings.
This is a beautiful house with the most amazing yard and back deck. It is conveniently located and very comfortably slept 8 adults. When I come back for another group trip and some more wine tasting, I know where I am staying! The owner is very nice and helpful and responds quickly to messages. Great stay. All of the guests from our trip were very impressed. You should stay here!
We're 6 women who enjoy a girlfriend weekend every other year... Friends since Kindergarten, now in our 60's!
The house was chosen for its closeness to El Dorado wineries and shopping in ElDorado hills and Folsom.
There were enough beds for all of us and the kitchen was amply stocked.
Wild turkeys roamed the grounds and it wasn't until our last day that we discovered a zip line on the property! Oh the memories we could have made, only if we'd discovered it sooner!!!
We enjoyed a day wine tasting with Wine Experience... Our driver Wayne even provided an exceptional lunch including China, stemware and linens and gorgeous views of the valley and snow capped Sierras...
It was a lovely weekend ~
