About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
After a day of river rafting/kayaking, wine-tasting, or fish in our river, fire up the BBQ outside while watching the kids explore for gold or lounge in the hammock while reading a good book. The kitchen is fully loaded with appliances and there is a pub table in the dining room that seats eight people with an additional kitchen bar with stools.
After dinner, cozy up to the fireplace in the family room with a glass of wine and gaze at the beautiful view of the river or play a round of poker in the rompus room while the kids play one of the many games available.
All guestrooms are comfortably furnished for one of the most peaceful night's sleep this side of the West. There is one king bedded room; one room offers two queen beds; the other room offers a queen bed and the rompus room has a set of twin bunk beds. For those guests that don't mind sleeping on the couch, we offer three comfy couches, along with a great place to camp outside that overlooks the river. There are two showers; 1 with a bath tubs. Towels/linens are available.

About the owner: Owners, Mike and Carrie McAllen
Why the Owner Chose Lotus, Coloma, CA, USA:
We were visiting family in the Gold Country in early 2006 and fell in love with the area. We loved the relaxed vibe and the beautiful foothills and of course the beautiful river. Within a month we accepted the keys to our new home located on 2 acres and on the South Fork of the American River. The wineries, open spaces, wildlife, river recreation, culture and great people are all amenities that we enjoy. It's our home away from home so we are happy to share it when we can't be there ourselves. Every time we go for a visit, we instantly feel all the pressures of the daily grind evaporate and we always return back to the bay area refreshed and relaxed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many great things to do in the historic Gold Country: River Rafting, hiking, biking, eating, wine tasting at many local wineries, buying locally grown organic olive oil and honey, relaxing, reading a good book on the private access river in front of our home, BBQ, spending time with family and friends for the weekend on a hot summer day, gold panning, horseback riding, shopping in Placerville and Auburn for unique gifts and much more.
