“A visit to Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Elke and her dog Rowdy greeted us for our 2-night stay at her inn! The B&B was one of the best we've been to. The house and grounds were absolutely beautiful. But what made our stay most memorable was Elke. She was a great tour guide and showed us spots we wouldn't have found on our own. In addition, Elke is very knowledgeable about the area's history and a great storyteller. We're looking forward to our next stay there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are charming.

We spent two nights (Friday and Saturday) in mid March 2014. This B&B Inn has beautiful and superbly maintained and decorated rooms and grounds. Our very comfortable and clean room had very nice local views. Saturday we took a wonderful sightseeing drive to nearby Apple Hill with views of the snow capped "Crystal High Serra Mts." (Apple Pie and beer/wine tasting), with lunch in historic Hangtown (Placerville). Saturday night was very fun Country Dancing with locals in a historic barn near Pilot Hill. Breakfasts were perfect ! .....a very enjoyable weekend.

Enchanted April Inn is one of the most beautiful B&B in northern CA. Elke the Baroness and Rowdy, the Boston terrier welcomed us with open arms! Our room was very romantic and lovely with the fireplace and chandlier. The Italian beechwood linen used as bedsheets gave us the best sleep. We felt pampered and very special. No doubt, we will be returning to the Inn soon!

Room Tip: All of Elke's B&B rooms were inviting but if you really want the best of the best room, it i...

Elke is an amazing hostess! We have been here several times with our horses, including last minute stays when we can't make back home to Reno when it snows. Elke always makes us feel welcome and special! We love how she pampers us with the amazing accommodations and breakfasts. The riding in the area ranges from easy to challenging, from a few miles to dozens of miles. I highly recommend staying at Enchanted April Inn!

Quite charming with a most helpful and knowledgeable hostess. The accomodations were extremely clean and attractively furnished. The location was perfect for us because this is horse country. Elks knew all about surrounding restaurants and horse properties. Great!

I spent two nights at the Enchanted April Inn. The room was lovely but what really sets this Inn apart from other properties is the beautiful grounds. It's so well maiintained with a placid lake and comfortable environment. As a woman traveling alone I felt safe and secure in the serenity of the Enchanted April Inn. I wish I could have spent more time there and highly recommend the property to anyone wanting a convenient escape. You wont be disappointed.

Elke has a gorgeous property & was extremely hospitable. Not only are rates quite reasonable, but the accommodations are top-notch. There are so many hidden gems in the area in terms of food and drink and outdoors that the location is perfectly centered with plenty to do. The inn is very well-appointed, clean, and thankfully not "stuffy" or off-putting (as I've found some B&B type places can be). Instead of feeling like a boarder at some stranger's home Elke makes you feel like a guest with family or friends; very comfortable and "easy." Will be back and will recommend.
