We recently wrote about some of the many things you can do in El Dorado County to make a whole weekend trip out of your next visit. Of course, if you’re coming into the area from afar or are simply looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, you’ll need a place to stay. Below are three charming bed and breakfasts to stay at during your next visit to the area:
