Hello! Please read thoroughly. As a vacation guest of the cottages you hereby accept and agree to the following:

*The Cottages are private and “non-commercial”. They are available by reservation only.
*The area is fairly rural and Verizon Wireless has the best cell signal in our area. If you do not have Verizon you may  have limited reception.
*Check-in time is between 3:00pm & 6:00pm and we are located at 5941 New River Road, Coloma, Ca. 95613. Please follow the directions in your confirmation letter because GPS may take you the wrong way. If your arrival and / or departure time is different than noted above, we may or may not be able to accommodate you depending on availability. So please check with us in advance. There is a fee of $15 for any modifications to arrival or departure times.
*Because cell service is limited in our area and because the property is gated, you must text us for your personal gate code within an hour of arrival. THE GATE CODE WILL EXPIRE IF "NOT USED" WITHIN 90 MINUTES OF CONTACTING US. Once used this will be your gate code for the duration of your stay. If we have to reprogram the code for late arrival, there is a $20 fee.
*If you booked through an online booking engine and have already provided your ID, or if you have stayed with us before, and you do not require that our host meet you upon arrival, please let us know.
*The Riverhaus & Rio Azul are the only cottages that have WIFI. Otherwise you can access the internet at our local cafés or use Verizon if you have it.
*The one bedroom & studio cottage rates are based on double occupancy. Riverhaus & Rio Azul are based on 4 occupants. It is $15 pp/pn thereafter. Maximum occupants are 4 for “Bullits Bar”, “the River Deck”, the “Romantic Riverfront Studio”, 5 for “the Riverhaus” & 7 for "Rio Azul".
*We do provide linens, blankets and towels for 2 people in the Riverdeck, “Bullits Bar”, “Romantic Riverfront Studio” and for 4 people in the “Riverhaus” & "Rio Azul".  Please bring your own linens and towels for extra occupants. 
*Important to note that the “Riverfront Studio” does not have an interior bathroom. The bathroom is about 200 feet away from the cottage and is exclusive to the guest of this cottage, while visiting.
*Tent camping is available for additional guests, with permission from the owner & on a limited basis. Tents can be placed near your cottage only, and are not allowed in the common areas unless you have rented all cottages. Tent space is $30 per night for two people then $15 per person thereafter. We do not have tents for rent. You must bring your own.
*Our property is beautiful and fun so if you would like to invite friends or family over for the day they are more than welcome. There is no charge for 2 visiting guests per cottage. The rate is $5 per person after 2 people and $5 per visiting pet. Events can include, group dinners, BBQ’s, birthdays and river access for boating. If you have reserved all of the cottages, there is no charge for up to 10 additional visiting guests. If your guests stay past 11:59pm they will be considered an additional occupant and the extra occupant fee will apply.
*When you arrive at the gate enter your code; wait one second & the gate will open. Do not enter #.
*Please go directly to the Cottage for your keys and house instructions.
*Our property is considered a multiple use property, which means that we have year round tenants at this location. Please be respectful of your neighbors and they will be respectful of you.
*Please also note that we are in a tourist area that is popular for whitewater rafting, weddings, camping, etc. There is also an outdoor school across the river October through May, so please keep in mind that there will usually be noise from these activities; however quiet hours are from 10pm-7am. If you experience noise that is unpleasant, please do not hesitate to call us.
*A deposit is required with your reservation, and if you used a booking engine such as AIRBNB it is already paid. If you did not book on AIRBNB, a $100 security deposit it will be added to your online booking. For long term rentals we will charge your card in advance and the amount of deposit depends on the length of your stay.
*We do not allow smoking in the cottages. Smoking (including, cigarettes, candles, incense, marijuana, or other items that produce smoke and/or odor) will result in the loss of your deposit and you will be charged additional cleaning fees beginning at $45 and/or an air purification fee of $25. Smoking is allowed in the common areas and at least 10 feet from the cottage but please do not allow smoke to enter the cottage.

*We love our pets!! And we know you do too, so we are a pet friendly property. The pet fee is $10 per night and is not a cleaning fee. Please bring your pets bedding and/or kennel and please do not allow your furry friends on the furniture. Extra cleaning fees beginning at $45 will apply if pet hair, feathers, urine or other pet related items are found in your cottage. 
Back to the RIO!! *The American River is dam controlled, so the water levels fluctuate daily. For accurate flow information go to dreamflows.com.
*Our county does require that you wear a life vest while on the river and there isn't a place to rent them here. You will have to purchase your own or rent out of the area if you choose to float on the water.
*Although we know you are excited to be in the Gold Country, We do not allow gold panning or dredging on the property due to owners mineral rights. But if you’d like to pan for gold, please check state park and county rules for panning areas.
*Checking out of your cottage is as easy as 1-2-3! Please wash your dishes as you would like to see them when you arrive, turn off the AC or heater, leave the door unlocked & the keys on the counter. Finally, take your trash and recycling to the trash receptacles on the left of the driveway as you exit. We do appreciate the separation of CRV glass & plastic so if you'd like o leave those items in separate bags in your cottage we will take care of the rest! *The dishes must be squeaky clean and ready for the next guest to use, or a $25 fee will apply.
*Refund and cancellations: You may cancel your reservation for a 50% refund up to 7 days prior to check-in. After 7 days we do not issue refunds but can attempt to re-book the cottage and reschedule your reservation. If we cannot re-book the cottage, there will be no refund, but we will do the best we can to accommodate you for a future stay. Processing fees for re-booking and/or agreed upon cancellations will be $25.
