Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful spot! Very cozy, clean and full of thoughtful little details. The proximity to the river is great. I would definitely recommend this spot for those who love the heat, the beautiful rocks and the clear, cold river.

Love the title of the cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early and the cottage was clean a huge plus. We were able to check in early and check out without pressure. We loved the location right on the river and we met some very cool people. The bed was very comfortable and it was cool to see mama doe and her two babies with her. We will definitivelly put this on Facebook and tell our friends about it. Hope to come back in the spring and thank you so much to Danika she's such a doll.

Perfect Place for our Company Offsite

  • 5 of 5

I planned a river rafting trip for my company. We rented 3 cottages on DJ's property. It was wonderful! The river access was awesome. Having a nice kitchen in each of the cottages made hosting super convenient. The fire pit area was excellent and there was a ton of parking. It was also within walking distance to American River Recreation/American River Resort where we had our river rafting planned. It was an awesome weekend, and I would highly recommend doing a full buy-out of the cottages if you're looking to entertain a large group. We were a little big, and one cabin had already been rented but they were super nice and understanding!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

There is very limited lodging in Coloma. I first attempted to stay at the Coloma resort which was very loud and crowded. What a relief it was to reach this cabin. It is quiet and beautiful and very close to town, the market, and right on the river. The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were very on top of things. They are very helpful and friendly people to rent from. And the prices are very reasonable for the area. I have nothing but good memories staying here and highly recommend it to others.

Cottage deluxe!

  • 5 of 5

A simple cinder-block cottage from the outside; a luxurious, very well-appointed oasis inside. Bed so high you need a ladder to climb in and sink deep down. Kitchen with everything needed, and everything in excellent condition. Keurig coffee-maker and lots of pods. Full-size fridge! Comfortable futon in living room. Small but efficient bathroom with a good shower and a toilet that didn't stop up once. Air-conditioning for the heat of the day, windows to open to capture the cool of the night. Weber barbecue, bar with stools provided on deck. Steps from the foot of the Troublemaker rapids and a short clamber over boulders to reach a point from which to watch rafters and kayakers shoot the rapids.

Around the other way is Marshall Gold Discovery Historical State Park, literally a five minute walk from the cottage. I can recommend the gelato at the Argonaut cafe!

Jeff and Danika have done an incredible job and are wonderfully hospitable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be returning.

River Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Coloma Cottages. Jeff and Danika were very personable and attended to everything that we needed. The cottage was nicely decorated and had everything that we needed to cook our own meals. We had our own river access and were able to sit on the shoreline and watch the excitement float by. Looking forward to doing it again next year.

Riverfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by saying Jeff and Danika are the greatest hosts. They thought of everything! They welcomed us as we arrived from our 10 hour motorcycle ride with open arms. They got us settled and sent us out with lots of dinner choices in the area.

If there wasn't so much to do up there I never would have left the bed. The mattress was like sleeping on a cloud. The river was just out the back door and the scenery was beautiful. It was a perfect getaway. Thank you! We will be back!
