About this listing
If, by chance, you are looking for a romantic spot in Fair Play, California to spend some long deserved “off time” this is the place! The cottage is a charming vacation rental that shares a 5-acre ranch property next to Perry Creek Winery. It’s a spacious yet cozy wine country rental home in the heart of El Dorado and Amador Wine Regions, featuring over 65 family owned wineries to visit. Fair Play’s 5-mile wine trail allows guests to taste at over 25 wineries in a safe and convenient country setting. The Cottage at Perry Creek is quickly becoming Fair Play’s preferred place to stay for privacy, comfort, quality and value. Please check out our outstanding guest reviews and see why you should choose the cottage over other bed and breakfast or vacation rentals when visiting the Fair Play, Amador or El Dorado Wine Regions.
The cottage décor is Wine Country and Sierra Mountain inspired, giving guests the true feel of Gold Country. Completely furnished and equipped with all the comforts of a first class accommodation, your winery excursion, vacation or holiday stay at the cottage is sure to leave you pleasantly surprised.
The rental’s property is heavily vegetated and dotted with granite rock outcroppings, huge walnut and cedar trees, as well as old stone walls that provide charm and ambiance to the grounds. Private and serene you can enjoy outdoor barbequing in your private back yard, or just lounge under the trees and enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy a good book. Also on property are 2 lovely quarter/paint horses, so don’t forget your carrots!
If you enjoy evening or morning walks you can head out the front gate to either side and pass along Perry Creek, Windwalker and Fleur De Lys vineyard laden wineries and horse country ranches. And for those that are inspired by walks with purpose you may even choose to stroll up our little dirt road with your dog to Perry Creek Vineyard to enjoy a tasting or picnic.
1 bedroom cottage, hot tub, private yard with lounge chairs and outdoor dining table. Walk the grounds or up to the winery. I live in the front house, I never bother guests unless they come to me :)

The location was very central to what we wanted to do (wine tasting), but it was also very remote. Although it lists internet as being available, it was a very weak signal. This could be a good thing, but internet access is needed even though we were on vacation, we still had work that needed to be done. Very cozy place, with a comfortable bed and pillows.
The internet (wifi) signal comes from a repeater that is off of the front house. We have purchased the best equipment possible aside from putting a separate dish on the cottage which we are told by our high speed company (not necessary) we will have them out to see what more might be done to improve. Most guests have not had a problem, but every phone, laptop etc. has different signal capabilities and strengths. Please let us know while you are staying with us if you have a problem, so we can try to help :)
We were looking for a quiet weekend getaway, and Nancy's cottage was a perfect choice for this! Located in El Dorado County, the cottage is surrounded by beautiful forests and there's plenty of wineries nearby. Nancy gave us a lot of tips of places to check out, and we had a great time tasting wines and enjoying nature.
The cottage itself is spacious, with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. The hot tub and beautiful outside seating area made our stay even more relaxing.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Nancy is great! We arrived in mid-afternoon, in high heat. She was kind enough to put in an air conditioner before we got there! Thank goodness. the place is very private and quiet and had all that we needed: even bagels and muffins!
The place was spotless.
I just wish it wasn't so hot, and I could have taken advantage of the back yard more, but my doggie loved it. I fed the horses every morning.
We aren't wine drinkers, so we mostly drove around, went to waterfall and lake and even the creek nearby. Finally went to 3 wineries nearby the last day.... this is the best kept secret. These wineries are what Napa used to be 25 years ago: free wine tasting, no crowds, nice owners.
