Welcome to our 1,100 square ft. private country cottage nestled in El Dorado on 2 acres. Built in 1839 originally as a blacksmith shop with charm + since updated with new appliances, fixtures + detail to boot. The bottom floor has a nice open + airy floor plan with a whimsical staircase leading to the second floor. Enjoy a drink + relax on the back deck or the custom outdoor kitchen area with the hot tub + outdoor shower nearby. We hope you enjoy your stay in this unique private retreat.

The space
Nestled on a quiet backroad is this country cottage that has all the charm and personality to offer. We wanted to create more than just a place to stay, but an inviting experience that will be memorable. Designed with comfort and aesthetic in mind every little detail matters to us. Conveniently located nearby to trails, Apple Hill, beautiful wineries, the river, downtown Placerville and some shopping centers. Lake Tahoe is a little over an hours drive so not too far for a fun trip. Brides and newlyweds love the cottage for scenic bridal photos and a honeymoon retreat. There’s a large driveway for parking, a back outdoor patio with a full lounge space and outdoor fridge and up the steps to the right of it is a private hot tub perfect for those crisp nights with some hot cocoa or just to relax. We have added a nice BBQ grill to the back patio amenities for you to enjoy. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea from the back upper deck and maybe you’ll spot some free range chickens, ducks and heritage turkeys foraging nearby on the sprawling acre. Lay back in the comfy lounge chairs and stargaze the constellations in the clear night sky or lay out to get some sun! You’ll have access to the custom outdoor waterfall shower just around the corner from the cozy hammock and fire pit. You can use all these extras! We’ve put a lot of thought and effort to provide guests with a space with the most amenities out of any other Airbnb around. If you would like some complimentary farm fresh eggs please don’t hesitate to ask. The large private driveway in front of the cottage can fit multiple cars. Please note that the 5th person sleeping arrangement is on the big comfy couch in the living room.

Where you’ll be

Placerville, California, United States

We are on a quiet privately maintained road 12 minutes from apple hill/high hill and less than 10 from main downtown placerville with cute shopping boutiques and amazing breakfast and dinner restaurants. There are some great local hikes nearby as well. Red hawk casino is 8 minutes away. Lake Tahoe is an hour and 15 minutes away and the river is less than 20 minutes. Lots to choose from. There’s a variety of cuisine around depending on your taste buds and there’s both a Walmart and a target just one exit away! Very ideal to feel connected to the town but also secluded enough.

I'm an avid artist and driven designer of the details. I love the original, unique and versatile creative flow of things in life. I like to stay busy and have more ideas than I can tackle. Married to my tree climbing husband. (He's a lumberjack of sorts). Just taking each day a step at a time.

During your stay

We are in the main house in front of the country cottage and I am home most of the time if you have any questions or need help with anything. You might spot my husband or I walking the property to tend to the chickens, ducks or garden and I’ll say hello if we see each other but other than that I like to respect the privacy of others and this space. It’s a unique retreat that is a breath of fresh air.
