About Craig Cozart

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.

Craig Cozart purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Craig Cozart 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Gold Country Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time on our recent vacation. Craig and Jane were very gracious hosts and have their very own "slice of heaven" in Pilot Hill. Their cottage is charming and designed very well with lots of windows and natural light. We brought our dogs with us who enjoyed roaming around the spacious grounds, which are all contained within a four foot wire fence. We enjoyed meeting Scout and Lyle, Craig & Jane's basset hounds, who were extremely friendly. We also got to meet Linda and her seven puppies, which was beyond cool! Thanks again for everything!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area for a friend's wedding in Coloma. Absolutely loved everything about this place. The home was beautiful and clean, the hosts were friendly and kind AND we got to play with the litter of puppies they were fostering! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A wonderful get away near Placerville, highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage and the property are every bit as nice as all the reviews that have come before. The cottage is beautifully designed and nicely appointed and for us, had the added bonus of 2 (or 3 in our case) wonderful, friendly dogs to visit with! We also got to visit 7 puppies in the barn! The cottage has many of Jane Cozart's beautiful paintings on the walls; she is an incredible artist! Craig, you need to add some of your architectural photography as well!

The location is very convenient for a quiet get away and/or lots of activity, as it is near enough to many places to visit such as the American River, Auburn, Cool, Georgetown, Placerville and of course, Apple Hill.

The only disappointment that I had was that the Cozart's horses were not in residence at the time of our visit!

Highly recommend that you stay here!

Map

The address works for GPS and maps. However, do not let your gps put you on Pilot View Drive. It does not go through. If you are coming up from El Dorado Hills, just stay on Salmon Falls Rd. until you get to Rattlesnake Bar Rd., turn left and come down to Tigerlily. The same applies when coming from Auburn. Stay on 49 to Rattlesnake Bar, turn right. Easy.
