This little gem sits in a *tiny* little town and we would have missed it altogether if we hadn't gone river rafting close by. This is the oldest B&B we've ever visited and it is beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and they were excellent in making sure my husband, who has strict food allergies, had a delicious breakfast as well. The only drawback is we were on the 3rd floor (definitely got our steps in!) which had a LOT of stairs! You will also most likely need to drive to a restaurant for dinner as all but one of their restaurants were closed (July 2021).

Truly beautiful! This Inn is a historical landmark. Built in 1853 and trapped in a beautiful Victorian style. It's like going back in time. The customer service is really amaizing. The small time feel of these private owners makes it such a warm cozy atmosphere. They are right there to assist you or go over some of the history that riddles this amaizing place. They even have a ghost story attached to one of the rooms that has been documented in a hunted America book. If you are interested ask about or Google Oscar the Love Sick Ghost. in Every room is a different but glorious Victorian adventure. It is a clean and relaxing place from sitting in the living room listening to the music of the erra to the home-cooked country meals served with a smile in the dining room. The tiny city of Georgetown is where this landmark sits. The town also has this old fashion flair. I will be back and suggest you visit as well. You will not regret it.

We have never been to a B/B before and what a wonderful and exciting time we had. Out in the mountains like back home where we come from, plus the Inn reminded me like my Grandparents place. Everyone there was fantastic we stayed in the claw tub room with a private bath and loved it with no TV it was wonderful. And can't wait to go back again, oh ya there breakfast is fantastic. Great Place

2nd time visiting!!!! This place is amazing and the Staff is exceptional!!! Jason and Janine truly make you feel welcome, that this is your home away from home. We had a cocktail hour in the Parlor with a group of friends who were not staying at the inn. Jason and Janine were so hospitable and accommodating to us, they even served us wine and appetizers. The Inn is amazing, so beautiful and so well kept! Jason has so much pride in the Inn and it shows. It takes a lot of dedication to keep an Historic building such as this running and Jason has done major renovations over the last year. If your considering visiting just stop and do it, you will not be disappointed!!!

Halfway between the 2 parallel hwys. to Tahoe, Auburn on the 80 to the N., Placerville on the 50 - 30 mins. to the S., sits the best maintained & friendliest 120 yr. old B&B we have ever experienced, from East coast to the West. The absentee owner of just 3 yrs. is an art gallery owner in S. Lake Tahoe who worked at the Inn as a teen, under the couple who ran it for the previous 30 yrs. So a purchase of love & pride. His parents live there now & are in charge, but special kudos to Laura & her young helpers who really run this beautiful escape. Red & white wines along w/really good cheeses, salami, crackers & grapes are put out in the parlor at 5 . The 9 a.m. breakfast in a sunny front rm. is outstanding: apple pancakes, a fresh fruit compote, sausages, scrambled eggs, orange juice & the best coffee the Sunday morn. we were there. Don't miss the large patio & garden in the back, AND the very large, clean, modern hot tub at the back of the property! Every rm. was taken when we stayed but I was the only one to use it! Should keep this find a secret...but not the fact that when they book & confirm they CLEARLY remind guests that if you arrive after 6 p.m., CALL! Over 20 people asleep @ midnight when inconsiderate (drunk?) idiots clanged the door bell so hard & repeatedly they broke it! Phone # is even clearly posted on the glass front door! Other guests so nice & interesting we even exchanged contact info w/2 couples. Otherwise, quiet, restful. Don't know where all those people were, but only 4 of us shared happy hr. & it seemed a bunch left even before yummy breakfast. The business district of Georgetown is all of 3 blocks long but packed w/history. Do not miss the lovely art cooperative! Beautiful market too, w/an amazing array of freah deli items & yummy baked goods along w/staples for campers & fun sundries. But this is an inn to savor & stay put for all 20 hrs.
