We've been visiting the Albert Shafsky House for the past 13 years. We love the innkeepers. They have become family to us. They always make us feel at home. Delicious food, warm greetings, beautiful home.

Great property. Community sitting room has a TV, which was cool so we could catch up on the Olympics at the end of the day. We loved our bedroom, which was a bedroom and separate sitting room. (the attic room) Huge bonus is that it is a quick walk to old town, where all the shops and restaurants are.

Wonderful experience at this bed and breakfast! Rita was a welcoming, warm hostess who made us feel at home. We rented out all three rooms as we were in town for our daughter's wedding. Rita and Stephanie stayed in the background as we readied ourselves for the big day, but they were right there to answer any questions, or to... More

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. Rita is a fabulous cook, the room was extremely comfortable, and the house is absolutely beautiful. This will be our first choice for any return visits. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but Old Town is within walking distance so you really don't need to move once you park.

I loved chatting with you two about the history you have with Placerville. Glad you found the information on the family. Yes, parking is an issue but we try to make it work for everyone. The streets in this part of town were made for horse and buggy so they are very narrow. Hope to see you again the next... More

Albert Shafsky House B&B is on a corner as you go up a fairly steep hill, and not too far from historic Placerville. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. The hostess was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was yummy! We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

Love this place. Great rest, and it's located close enough to Sacramento and San Francisco without being "too close". Great food, wine in the parlor, nearby wineries to visit on Saturday - what's not to like?

Rita and Stephanie are wonderful. This was our first B&B experience and these ladies made us big fans. The rooms are spacious and each decorated with its own theme. Definitely check out the photos on their website. I recommend Alberta's Attic which has its own separate sitting room. I could spend hours in the living room: the woodwork, the decor,... More
