Guest access
You are more than welcome to wander the property and enjoy. The horses keep the pasture mowed. The chickens and ducks in the orchard are entertaining. If you go into the pasture or orchard please close the gate to prevent the horses and chickens from escaping. A flock of wild Turkeys wander through frequently, as well as deer. The walk down Beals Road (approximately 2 miles round trip) is an interesting walk. Our part-time dog has moved on with her owner. She shows up occasionally and promises lots of friendliness. The pond and waterfall brings a two fold enjoyment. Along with the serenity, the variety of birds that come to the pond can be very interesting. In the evening the gold finches and other "locals" come to get their baths. So if you are sitting by the pond around early evening you may be scolded by these birds, after all it is bath time.
We do not provide television because we have found guests enjoy the opportunity to unwind and relax in the country setting of the area. Tired of watching movies and look to step back in time? Try our old time radio complete with old time radio shows, like the Green Hornet, Amos and Andy, Jack Benny. Check them out and enjoy your stay.

Where you’ll be

Placerville, California, United States

We live in a rural area close to town. Cold Springs Road can be very busy but the cottage is well insulated and quiet. A walk down Beals Rd (about 2 miles round trip) is always interesting with lots of wildlife (deer and turkeys). Some friendly llamas live at the bottom of the road.
