About the owner: We are semi-retired from careers as a graphic designer and photographer. We enjoy horses, rafting, and hiking. There are two friendly dogs on the property.
Why the Owner Chose Pilot Hill: We wanted to be near the rafting on the American River, and we needed a place for our horses. We also wanted somewhere that was quiet and private, yet close to things like grocery stores.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: You can be as active as you like- you can run, bike, ride, hike, raft, or just sit with a book and watch the deer eat my landscaping.
