About: Anne: Passionate about the Sierra, mountain cabins, and, especially Cabin 5. She is constantly adding new features and touches to her cabin and loves to receive feedback from her many vacationers and guests.
Allan: Drone husband of Anne. Loves the cabin because of the local skiing, hiking, swimming, backpacking, and the easy availability of all the good features Anne has added to her cabin.
Why Strawberry: Sonora Pass is the most beautiful area of the Sierra, and the Pinecrest-Strawberry area is the best place to have an all-season cabin. The summers and autumns here are wonderful. The winter beauty plus the great skiing and other winter recreational activities are equally wonderful. Being located on the Stanislaus River just adds to the overall beauty of the Sierra experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The cabin has been extensively rebuilt with a new large downstairs family room with gas-fired mariposite rock fireplace. Kitchen and furnishings also largely new. Just out the front door is a myriad of outdoor activities including family BBQ's on the deck, hiking to the Lake, or enjoying a fine meal at the Strawberry Hotel's restaurant/bar across the road. One can drive down to the Gold Country including the historic towns of Sonora, Columbia, Twain Harte -- or up to historic Kennedy Meadows, Clark's Fork for a picnic by the river, a hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, an easy day trip to Bodie, Mono Lake, and the incredible Eastern Sierra. Then, there are warm, lazy afternoons of swimming, picnic lunches and fun on a rented party boat on Pinecrest Lake, and movies under the stars at the lake. At Natural Bridges near Columbia you can float down a small stream that passes through a mountain ridge and exits the other side. On the way you will float through three chambers with stalactites, stalagmites, and even a waterfall. There are several natural caverns offering tours. (Begin at Murphys, one of the most charming of the Gold Country towns.)
