Ticket to Relaxation
A great place to go to enjoy some relaxation. DJ and family are very nice and accommodating. The cabin was well stocked and comfortable. Although we are not rafters, we enjoyed packing a picnic lunch and finding a spot on the beach to watch them all come down the river. We took advantage of the outdoor activities on the property-horseshoe pit, BBQing and outdoor dining. I would recommend Coloma Cottages to anyone who loves the outdoors but likes to sleep in a comfy bed at night. It is the best of both worlds.
A wonderful 3 month stay on the South Fork of the American River.
I'm a travel nurse and I sought out this rental when I found out I was going to be working at a local hospital for 3 months. It was THE BEST choice. I was drawn to the location because I had a dog and wanted to live somewhere that was close to the river and had some area that my dog could run around in. Coloma Cottages was top notch. DJ, her husband, and son were all so welcoming and I felt that they treated me like family. It was sad to leave at the end of my 3 months there.
I was in the 2 bedroom cottage, which is part of a triplex. It was fully furnished and had EVERYTHING I needed. It had a fully stoked kitchen with utensils, cooking pots, plates, cups, and the BEST; a Keurig. I never will drink coffee the same again. The process of paying was easy, as I paid on a weekly basis. I had a great heater when the temps got cold, and wall air conditioner that worked great during the hot temps. The building kept naturally cool as well. The beds and couch were comfortable. She even stocked DVDs and a TV. I was lucky to have a verizon cellphone and used verizon for the internet access.
This would be a great place for someone to stay for a weekend, week, or a month. DJ was always super responsive and ensured that I was comfortable and taken care of.
Our family trip to the American River was amazing! Coloma Cottages was a great place to stay. I wish we had more time to spend just enjoying the property. One of the first things we saw on arrival was a deer crossing the property and then a little while later, a flock of geese waddled across and down the slope into the river! The property has the river to enjoy, a horseshoe pit, firepit and a nice grassy area to lounge. It was also great to have the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park within walking distance. We rode our bikes through the area and enjoyed all the historic displays. We were centrally located so we also made easy trips into Placerville and Auburn. The River Apartment is nothing fancy (remember you're at the river), but had all we needed to be comfortable. The complementary insect repellent was a definite plus! There's even a laundry facility on site. Danika was easy and pleasant to work with on booking our stay. Jeff was on site during our visit and was helpful and fun to chat with. I would definitely return to stay (a larger group would be sooo fun here too) and recommend this place to my family and friends.
Amazing getaway great for dogs!!!!
We went here on the 4th of July with out dogs and had a great time. The river is right on the property. The town was beautiful and full of friendly people. Dj was awsome to deal with. We booked last minute and were very well taken care Dj responded very quickly to everything. We will definitely be going back and recommending this spot to all out family and friends.
Fabulous river location!
This was a last minute trip to the gold country with my family and we were pretty fortunate to have stumbled upon the "River Apartment". It was super clean and well stocked. Most of all we loved the proximity to the river. We could literally hear the water flowing directly from the apartment. The hosts were very accommodating and we've already started planning our next trip. Highly recommend!
