I found Eden Vale's website online while searching for a B & B to stay in near Red Hawk Casino (near Placerville, Ca.). The website is so attractive and the photos of the grounds made it out to be so beautiful and lush, I decided to book it. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Eden Vale is nestled back in the gold country about a ten minute ride from the Casino. It is lovely old barn that has been converted to a very high-end B & B. The owners were just fabulous, attending to our every wish (even complimentary wine and a generous cheese plate delivered to our room the night we arrived). Even resident dog Pepper and cat 'The Bushwhacker' were happy to see us.The grounds are a glorious thing to behold, with little secret gardens, meandering pathways and fountains, all combining to create a marvelously calm feeling. There's even a trout pond you can admire and feed the trout if you so desire. The breakfast consisted of homemade scones, biscotti, spinach quiche, sausage, fruit and yogurt, a good selection of cereals, and of course tea, coffee and juice all whipped up by the very sweet staff member Kirsten, and was just delicious! You can eat inside in the lovely dining room, or try any of several outdoor areas. We stayed in the Cottonwood room, which was very comfortable, the best part was the huge outdoor brick patio accessed through french doors from the room. Surrounding the patio are lush plantings, beautiful trees, and fountains. In the morning and evening the birdsong is enchanting. I could go on and on, so I'll close by saying you will feel relaxed and renewed from your stay. Don't miss this hidden jewel tucked away in El Dorado County!
