Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast - Placerville is simply the ultimate in a modern luxury style B & B.

The entry has vaulted ceilings and all of the rooms are beautifully decorated, each with a special theme. My favorite is the Hollywood Room on the top floor, which is decorated with portraits of classic movie stars and memorabilia from the Golden Age of Hollywood and where the guests enjoy a breath taking view of the Gold Discovery Park area below. Perfect for a romantic glass of champagne on a warm evening. Guests are treated to a gourmet breakfast and there are many dining options available nearby for lunch and dinner.

Eden Vale Inn - Placerville is utterly unique among the bed and breakfast facilities in the area. It is located off a country road and you do not really notice it's magic until your drive up the driveway to the inn. It is there that you find yourself entering another world, more like a spa and retreat along with a beautiful combination of rustic and modern furnishings. You feel at home immediately. My first thought is to go find a cozy corner and just read a book to wind down. Indeed, they do have spa services available such as facials and massage with special arrangements for couples. The inn is surrounded by acres of gardens and a large pond. The inn offers a full breakfast often created from local ingredients. There are restaurant dining options within a short drive.
