El Dorado County Attractions

Gold Country wineries
The Gold Country has a lot to offer!
Come stay with us and explore the center of California History.

With our hotel being located in the heart of "Gold Country" you are only minutes from the Gold Bug Mine and Coloma, the home of Sutter's Mill.

In the grand ole town of Placerville, (also known as "Old Hangtown") you can still see part of the famous hanging tree by driving a few blocks down Main Street from the Gold Country Inn.

Placerville is also known for its stage plays, the arts, antiques and fine dining.

Located nearby is the American River which offers gold panning, fishing and whitewater rafting for the more adventurous, and Daffodil Hill in the springtime is a sight to behold! A wonderful retreat for the weekend getaway, The Gold Country Inn offers a variety of leisure time activities!

For the private airplane enthusiast The Gold Country Inn is located just minutes from Placerville's mountain top airstrip.

Further up Highway 50 from The Gold Country Inn, you'll find Apple Hill—known for its fine fruit crops, homemade apple cider and fritters.

Nestled among the apple orchards are some of California's best wineries!

In the winter, we're the perfect stop-over on your way to the slopes! An affordable hotel just a short drive from the slopes!
