Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The magic of a yurt without any of the drawbacks of canvas construction. This beautiful 440 square foot beauty has every comfort of home 400 feet from the South Fork of the American. Set on the high point of our 5 acres with views across the river to golden hills.

The space
The magic of a yurt without any of the drawbacks of canvas construction. This beautiful 440 square feet has every comfort of home 400 feet from the South Fork of the American. Set on the high point of our 5 acres with views across the river to golden hills. Beautiful native plant landscaping with a flagstone path and patio around the yurt make it a special environment.

If you have never spent the night in a round structure with a cedar ceiling and a 5 foot skylight, you are in for a treat. Beautiful stained concrete floors add to the ambiance and keep it cool in the summer.

We are located on the South Fork of the American River in the heart of the beautiful Lotus Coloma Valley. We are within a few minutes of the Marshall Gold Discovery Park and Museum, numerous wineries, and hiking and biking in hundreds of acres of open space. There are over 25 commercial rafting companies waiting to take you down the river if you don't have your own equipment. Or just relax and watch the river go by.

There is a river shuttle in the summer that takes boaters 10 miles up river or will pick you up 10 miles down river at the Folsom Reservoir take out. It leaves from Camp Lotus, just up the street.

We live in our house on the property so we available if you need anything but you can not see our house from the yurt.

2 night minimum stay.

Guest access
Plenty of private parking for whatever you are driving. Access to the South Fork to put in or take out your raft or kayak or just sit with your feet in the river. Access to our large spa overlooking the river, a short walk down the hill from the yurt.

Other things to note
2 night minimum. A 10% transient occupancy tax (TOT) required by El Dorado County is added to the cost and paid directly to the county. El Dorado County Business License #2014-054159. TOT registration certificate #54159.

Lotus, California, United States

We are located on the South Fork of the American River in the heart of the beautiful Lotus Coloma Valley. We are within a few minutes of the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park and Museum, numerous wineries, and hiking and biking in hundreds of acres of open space. There are over 25 commercial rafting companies waiting to take you down the river if you don't have your own equipment. Or just relax in our beach chairs and watch the river go by. Historic downtown Placerville is less than 20 minutes drive.
We are also only an hour and 15 minutes to skiing at Sierra at Tahoe and not much further to several another Tahoe resorts. Come back and soak in our private hot tub after a day of skiing and shorten your drive home the next day.

We live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in California two miles down river from where gold was discovered. It is California's most popular river for rafting and kayaking. We love to raft, kayak, ski, and travel the world to see new places. We love sharing our slice of heaven with like minded people who enjoy all of the beauty and recreation that this area has to offer.

During your stay
We live in our house on the property so we available if you need anything but you cannot see our house from the yurt. Our guests appreciate the almost complete privacy afforded by the yurt but we also enjoy socializing if you want ideas on things to do in the area or just want to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck of our house overlooking the river.
