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 Gold Country & High Sierra

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.

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.

Awesome cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed four days and three nights in this awesome cottage. The location felt remote with the trees around us, but just a quick five minute drive got us to all amenities we needed. The cottage had tons of natural light coming through the windows it felt like we were outdoors. Great big living room space with a decent size kitchen and a big bathroom and nice size bedroom. Perfect for two. We enjoyed getting our doggy fix with Lyle and Scout the owner's friendly Bassets as we had left our own dog at home. We used the grill, and the deck looked awesome. There was a heat wave when we were there, so we did not spend much time on the deck. We did explore the trails in the area and enjoyed a trip to Auburn and Grass Valley. We had a great vacation and would definitely come back again if we were in the area!

Cute, comfortable cabin.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got away from Southern California for a few days and loved this cute cabin. The owner met us, showed us around and was very helpful. The cabin is super comfortable and we hope to visit again. Great choice for a couple to getaway.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Gold Country Cottage. We were greeted by Craig & his pups as soon as we pulled in. The home is comfortable and has everything you would need for your stay. It is secluded & quite surrounded by lots of Oaks. Thank you Craig for your hospitality!!

Beautiful, peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is absolutely lovely with all the necessary amenities. Craig greeted us and gave us a quick intro to the house. He had turned the air on ahead of time so it was cool when we arrived. The house was just as beautiful as the photos. Comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, sprawling property where our pups ran wild. We will definitely be back.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Gold Country Cottage was perfect for us and our doggie. We had everything we needed. The place has lots of windows, high ceilings with plenty of light. The cottage was very clean; washer /dryer, big bathroom. We enjoyed sitting outside at night viewing the stars. I enjoyed having my morning coffee on the back deck with my book. They also have a great book selection. We want to go back in the winter for another cozy getaway!
