The best thing about this property was the location. The house was situated on about an acre plus lot with a circular drive and off-street parking. it was also just steps from downtown. The rooms had electric fireplaces which gave them a cozy, warm feel. The common room was cold and therefore not in use. I fire in the fireplace would have been nice. The grounds were in need of attention. It was quite overgrown. The rooms were nice but there needed to be a little more maintenance done such as paint touch up and loose wallpaper fixed. The breakfast was excellent and the host was very knowledgeable about the history of the house.

The proximity of GlenMorey Country House to downtown Placerville was great! The room and the entire house was very clean and organized! The inn keepers were extremely friendly and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable, and I appreciated the in-room heater that looked like a fireplace. The in-room bath/shower was disappointing. The rectangular shower curtain rods create a rectangular shape that is much smaller than the bath tub. I am an average sized person, and the curtain enclosure was so small the curtain kept getting stuck to my body. Also, the water pressure was fine in the evening, but in the morning turned to just a trickle. Overall, GlenMorey was great, and I would recommend it, just not the room with the bath/shower in it . . . unless problems are repaired.
Hello! Thank you for your helpful review of our newest room. We are in need of working out some kinks. When this room was a private family-use room, it had just a small shower enclosure. When we remodeled it over the summer to turn it into a refurbished guest room, we decided to go for a romantic, extra deep soaking tub. We decided to leave the shower plumbing intact to make bathing more versatile, but now we see that has been a mistake. Until these problems are solved, we will advertise this room as a bathtub only room. We have never had water pressure problems but we did have one I other issue with water pressure in another room right at the turn of this year. After some investigation, it turns out there was a water main break on High Street on December 19, with subsequent repairs, and due to this, there was sediment in our water lines. We have since flushed all of our lines and cleaned our shower heads, and do not anticipate any further problems in water pressure. All of our rooms are currently able to provide great pressure all running at the same time! Thank you for your otherwise complimentary review, we strive to have all our guests have a hassle free stay, and hope you will try us again!

We really enjoyed our short stay here and would return. It is located in a very convenient location for shopping and Placerville is always so much fun to cruise the shops!

Excellent location, a short walk to the Placerville downtown, and a short drive to gold country activities and apple farms. The house is very comfortable with a large den filled with books and games and a large covered porch. The place sits secluded on a tree-covered hilltop and is very quiet. Breakfast was tasty and filling. We spent two nights here with our 8 year old son and will definitely return.

We liked being able to walk over the freeway to main street Placerville where we shopped and ate dinner.

We just spent the weekend at the Glen Morey Country House in Placerville. We were in the area for a wedding and wanted to have a romantic weekend for us too. The Glen Morey house was perfect for a weekend like this and we were very happy with our stay. Tom was a wonderful host and we were a fan his breakfast, especially the French Toast. We enjoyed being close to the historic downtown area without being in it. It's only a five minute walk to the downtown area, which was very convenient. It's also just a short drive to the Apple Hill area, where we spent a good part of our Sunday after checking out. We stayed in the Inverness room and enjoyed a quiet stay. This is a quaint B&B, not a 4-star hotel. The house dates back to the 1800s so it has it quirks and it's has to be a near full time job keeping everything in working order - and not everything is. For me that adds to its charm. I travel on the order of a hundred days a year for business and stay in a lot of higher end chain hotels, but I also like a quaint B&B with just a couple of other guest that you can talk to over breakfast.. I thought it a good value and will want to stay here on our next visit. Room Tip: The Inverness Room is a quiet room off the main hall. See more room tips

We arrived early in the afternoon, and were welcomed to checkin. We walked to the downtown area and did some wine tasting and toured some shops. We bought some wine, cheese, bread, and meat and came back to the B&B to enjoy our dinner on the patio. Very relaxing. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. A great breakfast was served at 9am the next morning and we were on our way for the day.
