About the Property
2 separate cottages on 7 acres.
Enjoy the comfort and quiet setting of this charming private property on The American River Divide in Historic Pilot Hill. With two cottages on the property, you can choose which one that will best suit you and your group. Larger groups traveling together can choose to rent both of the cottages. Each cottage has 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, wood stoves, laundry and a fully equiped kitchen - all dishes, utensils, linens & towels are provided. Lush gardens on the property make it ideal for familiy reunions, parties and more. It is a short drive to several trail heads including The Western States/Tevis trails for endurance runners and riders. Visitors to the Gold Country will find The Cottages a charming and relaxing vacation destination.
You choose the cottage that best suits you. The Orchard Cottage with open mountain vistas or the rambling Country Cottage tucked in the trees. Large groups may choose to reserve both as they are conveniently near each other yet very private. Additional fees apply for large groups, receptions, or weddings.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: From the Bay Area, we moved our family of kids, dogs & horses up to the beautiful Divide in 2005. Half-way betweeen The Bay and the Slopes we found this community irresistable. For our first 6 years up here we continued to work in the East Bay as the Owners of a Walnut Creek hair studio. In early 2012 the opportunity to exchange our hair business for full time local life couldn't be passed up. Now we are busier than ever helping in the school gardens and coaching our girls teams. This really is a fabulous place to raise our girls and truely enjoy life. We love being able to offer our cottages as a comfortable, central location for visitors of the Gold Country to stay. We know you are going to enjoy it here as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Pilot Hill, CA, USA:
We found Pilot Hill on our way up to the slopes snow-boarding and fell in love with The Divide at once. Our family enjoys Nature's playgroung at its finest all year. In the heat of Summer we go swimming, canoeing, or fishing in the lakes and rivers, year round we get out on the many miles of trails with our horses or hiking and biking, and in Winter it is a short drive up to the slopes. At the end of a busy day we might go for dinner at the local Grill/Pizza where we always see others from our small community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With 2 separate cottages on this property there is much to offer. The older Country Cottage is nestled in the trees and old garden growth. This cottage has a cabin feel with wood paneling and flooring, a large country kitchen, wandering floor plan and unique bathrooms. Sit under the olive tree while you enjoy the surrounding gardens in their various stage of bloom, relax after your adventurous day exploring the Gold Country, play a game of pool, or snuggle up in front of a wood stove with a favorite book. The more modern Orchard Cottage offers open Mountain Views from the front room and generous sun deck. Sip your morning tea while sitting on the deck and look out over your horses in the pasture and plan your days trail adventure. Follow the garden paths to the orchard and enjoy seasonal fruit off the trees. This cottage can also use a separate entrance if you wish. Choose the cottage that will suit you best or for large groups you may reserve both cottages.
