Bring your horses, bring your dogs. Seven miles from the gold discovery State Park at Sutter's Mill, four miles from the Auburn State Recreational Area and the Western States Trail, linking Auburn and Lake Tahoe.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      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.
