About: Hello and welcome! We are a middle aged couple who love to travel, dine, drink fine wine and spend time with our family. We love to cook and entertain. Most importantly, we love to have fun together! We feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful area and it is our desire to share it with our guests. Please feel free to contact us anytime to see for yourself what the gold country has to offer! We are also open to trading spaces, products or services. Let us know what you have, what you want & what we can do for you! The sky is the limit! ~Cheers

Why Coloma:
Choose our riverfront cottage for the sounds of the river and the best hospitality you will find!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close to whitewater rafting, gold panning, museum, wine tasting, good food! Please keep in mind that this is a high tourist area. We are near two campgrounds, and on a very popular river for boating, so you will hear the sounds of happy campers, rafters and during the week through May, an outdoor discovery school across the river. Quiet hours for all activities are from 10pm to 7 am everyday.
