My Husband and I rented the entire house for his family to stay in for our wedding weekend. It was great that they all got their own room and bathroom. It's is also great that none of the rooms share a wall. The house has wifi which everyone appreciated. Each member of his family thanked us individually for renting the house for them and said they would love to live there. The two of us also got to stop by a few times and hang out and visit which was nice too. The owners are great. Tom met us for check in and they cooked everyone breakfast and served it at 9am sharp both mornings. It was just great to have the privacy and comfort. It allowed the family to visit and spend time together as they had not all been together for a long time. Check out was painless. After Breakfast Tom ran my credit card and we were on our way. I would recommend staying at the Glen Morey house if you get the chance!
My Husband's family stayed in the Glen Morey house for our wedding weekend. We rented out all 5 rooms for two nights and it was just perfect. It allowed his family to spend time together and visit. It created an environment where they could spend quality time together that they couldn't have gotten in a hotel. Tom was very friendly and they made breakfast for everyone both mornings. It was so nice to have breakfast served so they didn't have to coordinate such a large party going out. The house was clean and very inviting. His family couldn't stop thanking me for such a beautiful place and a wonderful nights sleep. They said they never wanted to leave and that they could just live there. If you have a large family or group to accommodate I wouldn't hesitate to call them.
This is a very unique, historical home. The owners were very friendly and helpful whenever we had any questions or needed anything. The way the rooms are set up (none of them right next to each other) lend to plenty of privacy, but with a sitting area just outside of the Inverness room, can offer room to socialize as well. The breakfast was excellent. The decor was perfect (added to the historical feel of the place) I am thinking about reserving the whole place at some time for a family get together. The price was great, discount for paying cash. It was definitely a real deal for the money (and I usually don't like bed and breakfasts). This one sold me on them though, at least on this one.
We stayed a total of three nights with the kids. Tom was a heartily host to us. Both rooms we reserved were equipped in a stylish manner which made it quite easy to provide us a temporary home. We take pleasure in recommending the rooms to families.
We stayed at Eden Vale Inn in late May 2015. We came for a family wedding and decided to make it a vacation. Wow! we still feel as if we're on vacation! Everything, from the room selection to the service, the cleanness, the breakfasts (Gayle was asked for her recipes) and the attention to detail, were all the best we could have hoped for. We had high expectations and they were exceeded. Thanks Gayle and Mark!
Was welcomed as an old friend, and pampered by an expert. Dinner reservations were made, my wine uncorked and I was given the run of the parlor and dining room. My room was on the ground floor, so convenient to the fridge, coffee pot and wine glasses. Bed was so comfortable, bathroom spotlessly clean, bathrobe and towels of quality, and room was nicely decorated in Victorian style. Breakfast was an egg Benedict with sauté asparagus,,with fresh fruit, muffin, and juice. Enjoyed my stay, hope to be back.
Very nice operators. Unfortunately, the bed was well past its useful life and made sleeping extremely uncomfortable. The breakfast was acceptable, but uninspired. The location is delightful, with an easy walk into old town Placerville.
GlenMorey Country House B&B is a little out-of-the-way, yet within walking distance of several restaurants and shops in Placerville. One we reached GlenMorey, we were happy to park the car and walk a bit. This B&B is a large older home. Bedrooms were decorated well. Because we were the only folks there at the time, Tom gave us the tour of them all. We found our room, with the King-size bed, to be very clean. The adjoining bathroom had been remodeled with a glass shower, and it too was clean. However, adequate water pressure was lacking. The pipes shook and rattled until you played around with the faucets, then the water came in a slow stream. The other suggestion would be to have different bath towels. The ones in our bath were pretty and embroidered but a little 'thin'. A couple of larger, thicker towels would have been nice. We did enjoy the breakfast the next morning with juice, eggs, toast, sausage and coffee…all served with a smile and pleasant conversation. I would stay there again.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Glen Morey for the Passport Weekend in the El Dorado wine country. As usual, Tom was a gracious host. The rooms area clean and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and filling, just what is needed before a day of wine tasting. The location is great. It is an easy walk to downtown Placerville and its restaurants. I would recommend the Glen Morey to anyone staying in this area.
Our stay was very nice, the room was gorgeous and the breakfast was delicious! We weren't prepared for the low water pressure in the shower, but I guess that is expected in an older home. If you pay in cash, you will get a discount, but I am not sure that it equals out to the $20 that is advertised online. I would recommend this bed and breakfast!
The service and food in the Glen Morey house is wonderful. The house is over 100 years old, so the house is quaint and somewhat old-fashioned, but warm and friendly and homey. I've stayed there several times. I LOVE it! The breakfasts are really good!
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.
This was the most comfortable B&B I have ever stayed at. You feel right at home. Very clean. The breakfast was also fabulous!!! I recommend this place to anyone who needs a relaxing place to get away!!!
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.
We were upgraded to a larger room when we arrived for the same price - a nice surprise! The property is beautiful and the home is full of interesting antiques. Robin and Mark are both so sweet and helpful.When we told them we were wine tasting in the area they gave us a ton of advice on which wineries to try. Robin had home-made apple pie and a special Port waiting for us when we returned from dinner, and made a lovely breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended!
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.
Nearly a year ago we booked all 3 rooms at the Inn for our wedding party. The suite was ideal for the groomsmen to get decked out; followed by an after wedding celebration with champagne with 2 of our out of town guests; and finally as our romantic wedding night suite! My daughters were bridesmaids and in the 2nd upstairs room which was appointed beautifully. My elderly parents were very comfortable in the king bedroom downstairs. The sitting room was adjoining and was ideal for our family gathering the night before the wedding as well as the following morning. Rita's breakfast was delicious ~ she is a superb hostess! My father fell ill the day we all checked out; Rita was so helpful keeping all of us calm as we hurried to get my folks on the road. She is definitely a person who goes the extra mile to make everyone comfortable!! I so appreciated her dinner suggestion the night before the wedding ~ we had an excellent meal and service at Bricks. Rita helped us order a set of the ultra cozy sheets used at the Inn and we have been enjoying them!! We highly recommend the Albert Shafsky House! ~ Carol & Michael ~
