“We highly recommend Eden Vale…memorable and relaxing. We have stayed in B&B’s for 25 years…Mark and Gayle got everything right at Edenvale. A truely comfortable, quiet and well appointed facility. They have created rooms that are beautifully decorated with great down pillows, comfy chairs by the fireplaces…the baths with showers even my 6′ 4” husband appreciated.”

“Wonderfully relaxing!” Posted on BedandBeakfast.com 11/09/10. “Eden Vale Inn is a peaceful, lovely setting…A great place to just enjoy life and reconnect.” Copied by Innkeeper
“Spectacular…Beyond Words” “We loved Eden Vale. The inn was originally a barn, and the transformation over 25 years of work by Mark and Gayle is beyond words. Our room had a private patio and Japanese soaking tub, which was a great way to relax at night” Copied by Innkeeper “… The inn was originally a barn, and the transformation over 25 years of work by Mark and Gayle is beyond words…We loved the modern touches contrasting with the country setting. You just have to experience it all for yourself. We’ll be back!” Post on Trip Advisor 10-30-2010
“Serene and beautiful…We loved it!” Trip Advisor Oct. 6, 2010 “My husband, father and step mother spent the weekend at Eden Vale Inn Bed and Breakfast … My step mother has mobility issues so they stayed on the main floor in a room that accommodates those with disabilities (walk in shower)…My husband and I were downstairs in a perfectly appointed suite-like room with a semi-private patio. The grounds are a marvel of garden foliage and paths, private areas, and shared lawns. Then there is the pond – the clearest, most refreshing pond. You can actually see the bottom – it’s not murky at all. But the breakfasts were the crowning glory of our stay: the food is fresh (vegetable garden on site), delicious, and abundant.” Copied by Innkeeper “The Inn is pet-friendly and we enjoyed the Inn dog, Pepper, and the Inn cat, Mr. Bushwhack. The setting is serene, peaceful, and perfect for relaxing. Other amenities include … delicious dining close by” Cafe Mahjaic and an Apple Festival “Apple Hill. The nearby town of Placerville is charming but not precious, and has a bookstore, a wine and beer shop, and interesting dining options, and nearby wineries. We are definitely coming back. We loved it!” Emma, from Los Angeles

“A real gem … Beautifully appointed.” … “Eden Vale Inn was a real find! We have been there twice and will be back. The Inn sits on 10 acres of lovely and whimsically landscaped property complete with a pond to row on or swim in…The innkeepers have spent 25 years taking a barn and turning it into a 5 room retreat…The bathrooms are state of the art, most with soaking tubs and the artwork throughout speaks of careful and tasteful collecting over the years…” Copied by Innkeeper ” All the details have been attended to inside and out…The breakfasts are delicious,ample, gourmet buffets prepared every morning. Mark and Gail are helpful and accomodating, but never obtrusive. Eden is a well chosen name for it feels like the Garden of Eden.” Posted on Trip Advisor October 10, 2010.
“The Eden Vale Inn, between Coloma and Placerville, CA, captured our hearts the moment we drove up the driveway. Upon entering the home you are immediately filled with a warmth and belonging. The history of the 20 year labor of love was so rich and the home’s lovely world collections are so artfully displayed… Restoring this BARN, was brilliantly executed in fine (custom, Craftsman, country, southwest, Tibetan, European, modern, fen shui) style. From the beautiful modern bath to the very comfortable bed, the large soaking tub outside our perfectly appointed room was the icing on the cake.” Copied by Innkeeper Oct 2, 2010.
“The gardens are amazing. Gayle’s plant knowledge and sense of decor, fills every pathway with a visual delight, pairing old and new finds, as decorations between all the fantastic foliage and fountains. The large horse watering trough” an original that came with the barn “at the lower back side of the house, has a flowing spigot, trickling into its reflective pollywog pool. The surrounding pastures of horses and ponies add to the lovely views. The use of bowling balls placed along the west fencetop is visually pleasing as it leads you up to the pond…”
“Oh and I have to mention the food! The chef and innkeeper, Kirsten, is such a culinary wizard. The amazing stratas, quiches, stollens, scones, fresh fruits and famous home made granolas are just a tiny taste of what she can do. The coffee and tea bar is excellent and that kitchen would make any famous chef proud. Way too cool of a custom cabinet job in there Mark.”
You’ll amazed at this Zen country chic place. You’ll return, just like we will – soon…Now we know where Eden is. Someone’s gotta tell Huell Houser about this place… talk about California’s Gold! Kathy and Mike San Pedro, CA”

“Perfect romantic home, away from home!” Posted on TripAdvisor.com September 21, 2010. “My husband and I just had a wonderful relaxing weekend at this “out of the ordinary” B&B. The owners spent many years transforming this old barn into an amazing place…We had a perfect afternoon relaxing by the beautiful pond and then enjoyed wine by the fire pit!” Copied by Innkeeper “Eden Vale is very unique…setting is perfect: great views, wonderful gardens and patios, rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated… and very private. Gayle was very helpful and attentive and her breakfast was delicious. There is some thing here for everyone: from wine tasting to kayaking.”
