Historic Main Street Placerville is near historic Highway 49 and just minutes from over 50 Apple Hill farms and ranches, as well as dozens of wonderful wineries and breweries, and we are less than an hour from Lake Tahoe.  Don’t let the stoplights be a frustration as you pass through town, let them be your reminder to check out all that is great about this neck of the woods.
