Fodor's Expert Review Eden Vale Inn

1780 Springvale Rd., Placerville, California, 95667, USA Fodor's Choice

Handcrafted by the owners, this lavish but rustic B&B occupies a converted turn-of-the-20th-century hay barn, the centerpiece of which is a 27-foot slate fireplace that rises to a sloping ceiling of timber beams. Every room was designed with pampering in mind, with meticulous bedding, gas fireplaces, and private entrances to sleek, deep outdoor tubs, which are secluded by lattice sliding doors. Lush gardens and hammocks overlook a pond and wooded nooks. Guests enjoy breakfast in a Mexican-tiled sunroom, savoring homemade breads and dishes cooked with herbs and vegetables grown on-site. Finches and western tanagers chirp outside.
