Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with Sofa Bed in the living room surrounded by vineyards

The Crush Pad is a two bedroom two bath home in the heart of the Fairplay wine region. Built in the 1940's, the house sits on Oak studded lands with a seasonal creek and is surrounded by vineyards and wineries including it's own 7-acres of Zinfandel. The home has been carefully restored to it's original state with metal roof, fir floors and board and batten redwood siding. It is rustic and masculine with feminine sensibilities; gourmet kitchen, BBQ, large flat screen TV, eat in kitchen, patio dining, and more. Wrap yourself in all the finest linens that you would expect in a luxury hotel: Egyptian cotton towels, high thread count bed sheets and linen duvets. One minute drive to Toogood Winery and the Fair Play Pub, and easy access to all that Fair Play has to offer including 20+ wineries.

We are also just 15 minutes from Amador/Shenandoah Valley wineries in one direction and Pleasant Valley wineries in the other. There are music and food events every week in the immediate area in addition to a number of restaurants and a coffee shop.

Jenkinsons Lake / Sly Park Reservoir offers cooler temperatures, wonderful hiking, picnic areas, boat rentals and trout and bass fishing. With over 50 ranches, wineries, breweries, crafts, and lots of kid friendly activities, Apple Hill is a classic family destination just 30 minutes away.

The uniquely Californian Gold Rush Towns of Sutter Creek, Amador City and Jackson make another great day trip, just about 1/2 hour away. Unparalleled charm, great food and wines and a rich historical experience await!

Take the kids panning for gold, explore a cave, go white water rafting, skiing, or stroll down Placerville's historic Main Street.

About Belinda Cappelli

Marco and I met working at Swanson Vineyards in the Napa Valley. We moved to the sierra foothills a few years ago to start a family and explore an exciting wine region. We love the lifestyle that food and wine bring together and the people that it attracts.

Belinda Cappelli purchased this house in 2013

Why Belinda Cappelli chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We believe that Fairplay is a world class wine growing region and we love the people here. The wineries are family owned and operated by people with a passion for great wine that also see the potential here.

What makes this house unique

Your own 7 acre Zinfandel Vineyard and in the center of the Fairplay Wine Loop!

Wine Country Charm

  • 5 of 5

One of the most relaxed places we have ever stayed. You will enjoy the vintage oil paintings, the open floor plan, and a professional outdoor grill.

The feeling of being relaxed starts with Belinda, she just makes you feel at home.

Pioneer Park for walking is a well maintained beautiful park. Holiday Market not far away has great produce and good meat. I would say that is pretty perfect, quiet country life, a good store nearby and wineries.

P.S. Maxwell Smart our English bulldog enjoyed his stay too.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I am 100% honest when I say Picture Perfect - the Crush Pad was AMAZING!! From the friendly reservation process to the easy instructions on how to access the property to pulling up to the inviting porch after the beautiful drive past several inviting wineries and a new brewery in Diamond Springs (be sure to stop if you like good beer)...the interior did not disappoint, again I am not kidding when I say it is picture perfect!! We stayed comfortably for 4 nights with 2 adults and 1 child - plenty of room for two more adults. The owners were very friendly and helpful in quickly answering a few questions we had once we arrived. I highly recommend the Crush Pad and hope that we have a chance to stay again in the future!!

A Great Place to Stay in Fair Play

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is nicely finished and well equipped for a wine country stay. Close to all Fair Play wineries and within an easy drive to Amador county wineries. Very comfortable beds and furniture. Cabin is fully modernized but retains a rustic atmosphere. Very much enjoyed our stay here.

The "Pad" is in the middle of Eldorado wine country. It is a fantastic retreat for anyone that wants to explore the wonderful wineries in this region, which there are many!
