A destination. This spacious private retreat opens onto a pool and creek in a secluded wooded ravine. Steps to the river and a mile to historic Coloma. Enjoy rafting, fishing, swimming, wine tasting, hiking, skiing, or just kicking back!
Nearly three wooded acres with a variety of wildlife. Deeded access to the American River, which is a few hundred feet down the road. 1300 square foot downstairs retreat which is entirely separate from the upstairs unit, where we live. You are afforded all the privacy you'd like. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator, microwave, convection oven, Keurig coffee maker, and hot plates for cooking. Kitchen has a large walk in pantry fully stocked with cooking and eating essentials including a wide variety of spices. You'll find lots of goodies when you check in. All linens are provided, including pool towels. Extra large walk in closet for clothes or storage. Our retreat has 2 + bedrooms (One with a King and Twin Bed, the other with a King and Tempurpedic Twin Bed). There is an additional sleeping room with a Queen Bed as well. For our smaller travelers, we have a Pack & Play. The living room offers a very unique European floor sleeper sofa, and a Smart TV connected with Netflix, etc. We would like for you to have all the comforts of home, so we always urge our guests to inquire about what items are already on hand to avoid overpacking or having to make emergency runs to the local market! Once you are booked we'll give you the long list of items provided. Plenty of outside dining space, there is a table that seats 6 or another for 4, or the bistro table for 2.
Unlimited access to the pool, Weber propane grill, hammock, horseshoes, corn hole, along with other games. Washer and dryer are available upstairs in our residence, upon request. We never have other guests booked at the same time, so it is entirely your space. There is wireless internet throughout the property, even poolside. (2) Smart TV's with access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Direct TV, DVR with HBO, Showtime, Pay per view (guest responsible for fees for PPV) and other Premium Channels. A huge library of DVDs. Housekeeping services can be provided during your stay for an additional fee. Ample parking for you & your guests with direct access to your space.
We live in the separate upstairs portion of the house, so we're always available. We will arrange rafting and fishing trips if you would like, as well as winery excursions. You may see our chocolate lab Tiko cruising around, or our ever so friendly black lab, Malia. If we don't lock them up, they may be in the pool with you. As much as the labs would love to join you in your rental, we do not allow them to do so, especially since they love to jump in the pool.
Coloma is not only a very popular destination for river rafting and gold panning, but also for weddings, reunions & retreats. If you are planning or attending an event, we'd be happy to help you. We do allow small get togethers on property for such special occasions. Just let us know ahead of time. REMINDER: Verizon is the only cell phone carrier available in our area.
Basic rules of the house: Be respectful, smoking indoors is not allowed. Please use the plastic wine/beverage glasses provided around the pool. Strict County Ordinance of 10:00 pm for quiet time.
We moved up here from Los Angeles in 2014, and we absolutely love this area and all it has to offer. As hosts, we are attentive and laid back at the same time. We especially enjoy being able to walk to the river and enjoying the wildlife on the way. Tammy works at a local vineyard, so she can be helpful if you want to do some wine tasting.
