Hiking Near Eden Vale Inn

5458531-pic_93If you’re looking for some good hiking, I have two trail suggestions this week. The first one is the hike to Black Hole of Calcutta Falls. This is an easy, leisurely hike of 2.1 miles through wispy forest that ends at the breathtaking Calcutta Falls. Calcutta Falls flows year-round and is an excellent place to take a stroll and have a picnic in the warm California sun.

For those of you who are looking for a more strenuous hike, I recommend . The hike is a lengthy eight miles filled with constant elevation changes, which make the hike so strenuous. The length of it runs along the Jenkinson Lake where you can take a dip if you get too hot. The hike can also be done on horseback.

Black Hole is about 12 miles  and Jenkinson Lake at Sly Park is about 20 miles from Eden Vale Inn Both are lovely places to spend your day while you have a romantic stay at Edenvale Inn.1778015-IMG_1020

17th Annual Craft Fair

Every now and then, Placerville likes to get a little crafty with our annual Craft Faire. This year will be Placerville’s 17th annual Craft Faire and will take place on Sunday, August 11th from 8am to 3pm in Historic Downtown Placerville. Main Street will be closed to traffic during those hours to host over 100 artisans from all over the west. Crafts will include pottery, jewelry, woodwork, quilted and decorating items, dolls, garden items, soaps, candles, food and more. And if you happen to be an artisan yourself, it’s not too late to apply to be featured in the Craft Faire. You can download the application here:

Otherwise, admission and parking are free. So whether you enjoy original artisan crafts, or have a craft of your own that you would like to display, there’s no better place to be than Historic Downtown Placerville and no better place to stay in the area than Edenvale Inn.

Placerville Hangtown Car Show

CarShowOne of the best things about staying at Edenvale Inn is the fact that it is located in beautiful, historical Placerville. Though the town itself may be small, what it lacks in size it makes up in spirit and activities. There is always a multitude of events to participate in for the couple who seeks to keep their relationship active and fun. This coming August, on the 22nd from 5PM – 8PM, the city of Placerville will be hosting their Hangtown Car Show with free admission and parking. Perhaps the hubby would like to enjoy some automobile spectating while the two of you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Edenvale Inn. This is the perfect place to fit in a variety of different interests, and the car show is only one of the many enticing events Placerville has to offer.
