This B&B is an absolute gem! To begin with, it's amazing to find a B&B that welcomes children with so much grace and warmth. The hosts made our 3yr old feel right at home, and he's still talking about "visiting my new friends" again sometime. One of the features that makes this B&B so family friendly is that none of the rooms share a common wall, so we weren't as worried about disturbing anyone when our little guy woke up at 6am.
Our room had a large bed plus a twin bed with a trundle, and was very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing - apple french toast, eggs, sausage, and fresh fruit. Tea and cookies were always out, and the common room was a very comfortable place to spend the evening playing Chutes and Ladders as a family.
It's not just a family B&B, though - there was a young couple enjoying a romantic weekend who said it was an absolutely perfect place for their stay as well. The decor and feel of it doesn't scream "family", it's just little things that make it kid-friendly.
Placerville has a very charming main street with a lot of interesting shops and restaurants. A couple of the restaurants were very busy when we went out and we were unable to get in, so you may want to make your dinner plans in advance and call for reservations. There's a nice playground in town, which was helpful for burning off some preschooler energy.
We really loved staying at Glen Morey Country House, and we're already making plans for a future visit.
