Historic Placerville sprang into being with the largest human migration in world history: the Gold Rush of 1849. It was a rough wild place back then and, for a short time, was named ‘Hang Town’. There are many reminders of that history everywhere you look but now you'll also find hundreds of Gold Country Award Winning Wineries, excellent restaurants, and quaint Shops (don't miss Placerville Hardware - oldest west of the Mississippi), history, wildlife (of all kinds) and just the breathtaking beauty of the Sierras (we are 45 minutes from skiing at Sierra at Tahoe and closer yet for snowshoeing. As a backcountry enthusiast, I will gladly share my favorite places to go. Lake Tahoe or Desolation wilderness are an hour and 15 min away
There are wonderful places to eat in Placerville and you can walk to all of them all. For dinner I particularly like The Independent (best all around), Hey Day ( fun and excellent fare with a wonderful wine list), Cascada (very good upscale Mexican/full bar). My favorite for organic espresso and light breakfast fare with some gluten free selections and a coffee bar’s relaxed atmosphere is Totem., especially since it is a short morning walk away
Sweetie Pie's is an all time favorite of Placervillians and visited for breakfast.

FINDING YOUR HIDEAWAY: When you walk up the step (you'll see the photo in the album), from the street, and go past the birdhouses, along the walkway, you will enter a courtyard and the gate to your private garden will be straight ahead.Enter through the French door, the key will be on the table as you enter. If the day is warm, I will leave the air conditioner on but the nights cool down, so you can turn it off and leave the windows and door open for a fresh breeze (there is also an overhead fan). The neighborhood is safe and you will be secure enough to leave the door open, if you like. For cozy winter nights you will find the fireplace welcoming you inside and a wintery garden view from bed.
What could be a better place to start an adventure, whether hiking the Sierras, exploring history, wineries, apple farms, getting into the holiday spirit or meeting up with friend or family, than your own personal and cozy little place that is all yours, not a hotel but living authentic history and beautiful Placerville life.
The largest human migration in world history started when gold was discovered 8 miles away in Coloma and Placerville was one of the very earliest communities in California for a short time, it was called ‘Hang Town, because of hanging that happened here durning the infamous gold rush days. Now town is a colorful mix of historic buildings, eateries, and shops
While the California wine industry started here in the late 1800s , a blight nearly wiped it out by 1900 but in the last 30 years scores of fantastic winners has sprung up in the surrounding area best known for barbaras and zinfandels. Reminiscent of Napa/Sonoma 40 years ago, most often you will be served by the winemaker and with no charge for tasting The are small intimate wineries, some amazing beautiful grand ones with everything in between.
Placerville is the gateway to Apple Hill. From mid August to December apple orchards open to visitors Some, like High Hill Ranch, offer everything Apple and then some (including a stocked pond for trout fishing) other, smaller farms are more specialized during their busy season, it is best to avoid crowds by planing mid week or a morning start to the adventure
