I have lived in Somerset since 1976. I came here from Southern California. I can honestly say there is no place more beautiful, the only equal for me would be the warm shores of San Clemente in So Cal. Somerset offers a variety of terrains from lush open pasture land to tall mountain tops with Amazing Sierra views. For the water seekers there are Three Forks of the Cosumnes River that cross through Somerset along with many ponds and streams. Springtime just bubbles with creeks and streams everywhere. Trees are abundant and there are many varieties including huge Heritage oaks, tall pines and lush Cedars.


The sandy loam soil of the area is great for growing and the Somerset/Fairplay area is becoming world famous for its award winning wines. The weekends are full of city dwellers who want to escape from the hustle and bustle and visit the beautiful countryside of Somerset, while enjoying the many small wineries and unique wines the region offers. Fall is especially busy as there are various pumpkin patches and of course the grape crush. Each winery offers fun filled specials from firehouse chili to corking the barrels. (see a list of wineries below)

Winter watches as people scurry up the hill to cut their own Christmas Tree. There is a lot to see at all the Christmas tree farms. Be sure to bring your gloves and mittens as it gets chilly in the Winter. Although considered below the snow line and above the fog line (which is a perfect elevation) Somerset usually gets 1 or 2 light dustings of snow a year. Its just for fun and usually doesn’t stay over a day or two.. Spring speaks for herself, but many come to the beautiful Iris gardens. There are several bed and breakfasts for those who want to stay and some delicious places to eat. I have listed several places you’re your enjoyment below---I hope you come to Somerset for a visit---I absolutely know you will enjoy it.
