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 El Dorado County
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.

Charming cottage that was peaceful, relaxing, beautiful, and met our expectations
It is the most peaceful comfortable beautiful place and just a perfect getaway for us and our dog. Craig and Jane could not have been more accommodating and nice, as our hosts. The house has all the comforts and is just amazing. Beautifully decorated with a nice fireplace. The bed is so comfortable and I haven’t slept this well in a long time We loved exploring the neighboring towns and got to visit some old friends while we were here. It was the perfect anniversary getaway for us and we will definitely be back!!
Beautifully kept country cottage
This is our second stay at this lovely cottage since we like it so much. Great location, nicely decorated and set up and with very friendly hosts. We and our dogs loved our weekend away in El Dorado county.
Perfect place for a quiet getaway!!
Everything about this place was exactly as expected...quiet and peaceful...beautiful scenery...wonderful accommodations and the dogs...what can I say about Scout and Lyle!?
They met us, along with Craig, when we first arrived and then each morning when they heard us up and about, they would run down to say hi.
We loved our stay... hate to leave... hope to come back some day!
Susan and Stan
This place is a little gem.
What a beautiful spot. We will definitely be returning.
A little bit of heaven
This "guest house" truly is a little bit of heaven...from the beautiful oaks that surround the property to the precious pups and gentleman of the "big house" that welcomed us, we could not have enjoyed ourselves any more! The quiet charm of the home is awesome, beautiful fully functional kitchen, a magnificent fireplace with a library-surround holding tons of books to venture through and beautiful paintings by the lady of the "big house", Jane. These were but just a few of the many wonderful amenities found within this Pilot Hill home. It's everything you could want or dream of and MORE!
Quiet Serene Cottage
Great place to get away from it all! Even enjoyed an unexpected snow shower one evening, but used the gas grill outside none-the-less. The cottage is accommodating and comfortable. So quiet inside that the tick-tock of the second hand on the clock hanging in the kitchen can be heard. Peaceful surroundings outside. Fulfilled our expectations....and beyond!
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.
