Pollock Pines cabin description

The cabin in the woods is the ideal vacation home if you enjoy a quiet, serene, mountainous environment. The charming A-frame cabin is both romantic and family friendly. It is located on 3 beautifully wooded acres full of pine trees and madrones unique to this elevation of 3,200 feet. The property offers many sitting areas to enjoy the quiet. The property is gated and mostly fenced for privacy. It is beautifully decorated, but not museum like. It is friendly, cozy, and warm. Each room is decorated as a theme - the master bedroom exudes romance, the cozy cabin bedroom is perfect for kids, the den is decorated in an African motif. The view off the deck is endless wilderness. In the winter the cabin is nicely heated with a top of the line wood pellet stove - simply set the thermostat to your desired temperature and the cozy fire continues it's warm glow. In the summer the cabin remains cool and the nighttime breeze is heavenly. We have two portable air conditioners for rare heat waves. We are located off Sly Park Road, close to everything, yet Enchantment is located well off the main road. There is no traffic whatsoever. You will not see headlights or hear cars. The road leading to Enchantment is a dirt road.

The local area includes a large alpine lake (Jenkinson Lake - 3 miles away) which offers boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, sightseeing, camping, and horse back riding. The area of Fairplay (Somerset) is known as 'Little Napa Valley' and includes wineries such as Lava Kap. It is a 10 - 15 minute drive from Enchantment. Downtown Placerville (where the gold rush began) is a 25 minute drive from Enchantment. During the winter, skiing is a 40 minute drive to the nearest ski resort - Sierra at Tahoe. Enchantment does get its share of snow in the winter. It is just below the snowline, usually receiving 6 - 9 inches of snow. Lake Tahoe is a one hour drive from Enchantment.
