The estate boasts a vineyard and an olive grove along with Provençal lavender plants. Hand laid stone walls surround the Tuscan-style reflecting pool. As Gold Rush memories linger, birds serenade overhead, horses peacefully graze in the distance and dragonflies and wood ducks make their home at the spring-fed pond. Enchanted April Inn between Auburn, Coloma & Placerville is a sanctuary of peace and tranquility. The gardens and grounds are a quiet place where quests may relax and enjoy the serenity of the foothills, a place for people to emotionally, physically or metaphysically restore themselves from the stresses of daily life. We invite you to experience the magic of Enchanted April Inn Pilot Hill, California.
The Estate Experience
Reminiscent of the majestic Kentucky horse farms and the glory days of a bye-gone era… history and hospitality await you at Enchanted April Inn where guests are offered a truly unique experience. Many consider this estate to be the jewel of the Coloma Valley. In the distance blue blooded steeds spend their days luxuriating on the gently rolling foothill pastures, serenaded by meadow larks and red tail hawks. In spring the hills are edged with fresh greenery and in fall the glory of the red oaks, maples & liquidambar weaves a spell on the surrounding countryside. We believe you will agree that the Inn and its surrounding lands provide a magnificent backdrop for your Gold Rush Country adventure.
The Grounds & Gardens
Stroll through our gardens, catching the heady scent of roses and lavender on the wind. Lounge on the pond-side deck or under the spacious patio pergola. Spend an evening on the porch swing or sitting on our old-fashioned rocking chairs watching the glowing sunset. No matter what spot you choose for relaxation, you will enjoy the beauty of this gorgeous country estate.
