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.

Fantastic property in a beautiful location! Well appointed and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a beautiful location! Well appointed and clean! This is one of the nicest vacation rentals I never say that. The location was wonderful for having access to the American River and all of the hiking and wineries in the area plus the local historic sites. Would definitely stay at this property again! Very clean and very quiet and a wonderful place to relax

Comfortable and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Small house is the perfect size for 2 people to get away. Great kitchen to cook in, nice bath room ,comfortable bedroom and great living room ro relax in. All your needs are right there, taken care of. Local grocery store is perfect, and getting visits from the basset hounds just rounds it all out. Can't wait to find a reason to come back.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at many VRBO's and this is one of the best! The owner must be an interior designer/decorator. Lots of art on the walls, and nice architectural features.The lodging and property were beautiful, the owner was helpful and nice, and the dogs were a hoot! We highly recommend this rental. It's hard to imagine finding a better one in Gold Country.

Awesome! Pictures dont do it justice...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Gold Country Cottage over a weekend for a nearby wedding. A wonderfully relaxing hide away from the hustle and bustle of the event! Stayed with our 2 dogs, who felt right at home as soon as we opened the door. We were greeted as soon as we pulled in, by 2 of the sweetest Basset Hounds you can imagine. A wonderful, clean, well maintained, beautiful location. We highly recommend this cottage. We will be back!

Thank You!

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.
