You are invited to enjoy warm Scottish hospitality in the historic Henry S. Morey house, built in 1859. It is a gracious, rambling, one-story estate, surrounded by a 2 acre wooded glen. Comfortably furnished and decorated with Scottish antiques, GlenMorey House provides a quiet, relaxing retreat for our guests.
Named for Scotland's capital city, the Edinburgh is our most elegant room, also thought of as our "bridal suite". It is decorated in shades of ivory, gold, and sage, and has a beautiful carved antique marble fireplace. Area rugs grace the original hardwood floors. Its large, adjoining bathroom contains a bathtub with a shower. An extra twin may be placed in this room. 3rd person is $20.00 per night!
Our St. Andrews suite is a very inviting room decorated in restful blue and white . It is furnished with a pine armoire, queen sized four poster bed and faux fireplace. The Showpiece of this room is it's grand bath, which is the size of a small bedroom and fitted with a newly restored antique clawfoot tub and ladies' vanity.
The Inverness is our largest room and exudes comfort with plush wall to wall carpeting and decor of roses and pastels, and (new!) our only king-sized bed. This room also contains an extra twin and trundle bed, comfortably sleeping four persons. A white wicker sitting area invites window gazing at treetop level. This room has a private adjoining bathroom with a shower, recently remodeled in 2005! 3rd & 4th guests are $20.00 per person, per night.
Our most versatile room! A suite of two rooms and private bath with jetted tub and shower. One room contains a full sized bed, and the other may be configured in four different ways; as a King sized bed, a twin bed, two twin beds, or a private sitting room sofa.

We enjoyed a comfortable 2 night stay at Glenmorey in their Inverness room with a king size bed and daybed with a rollaway, perfect for the 4 of us as a base from which to do white water rafting on the nearby South Fork river. The room was off a large living room with comfortable furniture on which to relax which we had to ourselves as none of the other guests took advantage of it. There was also a wood burner in here which would make it very cosy in winter. As it was 90-100F during our stay we relaxed on the porch after dinner in town, ther rest of the time the air con in the room kept us perfectly cool. Breakfast was delicious in the company of fellow guests and our host Tom joined us in amiable conversation.

Inn a good value but roads into it very narrow. Be sure you come during the day so you can negotiate the streets in this old town.

This is an acceptable place to stay if you are looking for something other than a chain motel. Not fancy. Adequately clean. Bed was comfortable. Quiet. Window box air conditioning. Breakfast ok. It is probably not a place you will want to hang around during the day. It is next to the freeway, but above it. No outdoors spaces for sitting. No problems. Nice host.

Completely charming with lovely owners and a delicious breakfast. I felt completely at home. I would absolutely stay here again. 2 min walk to the main street but in a residential neighborhood.

Our stay was quick and easy. The house was very clean and the room was quaint and comfortable. The breakfast was right on time and the innkeepers were there when we needed them.

We had so much fun and we really loved the Inverness room. You wont be unhappy with your stay and walking distance to Main street with tons of dining and quaint shops.

Great access to downtown shopping and restaurants via an easy walk. Driving to area winery tasting rooms also very nice. El Dorado County's wine makers are the best in the nation, and GlenMorey House is a perfect home away from home to enjoy it all.

My mother and I had never driven through the gold country of California!! Placerville was our stop over for two nights..Sometimes it is difficult for us to find bed and breakfasts that can accommodate us in separate beds!! The GlenMorey fit the bill. They had two rooms that were perfect for us.The location was charming and quiet.Tom was very helpful and interesting to chat with..We would love to stay again when we are traveling that way..
