Property description

Neslted in the Pines, a five minute stroll to downtown Twain Harte, this charming cabin offers the perfect place to simply relax or plan one of many activities available. With its English cottage style furnishings and prime location this cabin provides room to build lasting memories.

The bright and spacious living room offers comfortable seating where you can watch movies, play games or simply relax with a book in the cozy bay window.
The country kitchen has a rustic pine table seating 8 and is fully equipped. Both bedrooms are furnished with comfy Queen size beds. For additional lodging the cabin offers an adorable loft with two single beds. A favorite with kids!
The sunny front deck nestled amongst tall pines and equipped with a barbeque, firepit and comfortable seating is the perfect spot for entertaining or simply putting up your feet. The private backyard has two Chase lounges in the shade of a century old oak tree.

During the warmer weather, activities such as swimming, floating carelessly on a raft, hiking 'The Rock' or simply enjoying digging your toes in the sand are all possible at the Twain Harte Lake. (YOU HAVE LAKE PRIVILEGES.)
If you prefer to stay dry, you can enjoy a fabulous round of golf at the Twain Harte public golf course or use the public tennis courts. One of our family favorites is the pee-wee 9 hole course for the less experienced golfer. If shopping is your sport there are several boutiques just a five minute walk away from the cabin. On the weekends the town offers free concerts and movie nights in the park.

During the cold season activities such as skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort only 20 miles away. If you prefer ice skating the Long Barn Rink is just up the road. Our family has many fond memories of sledding and tubing in Pinecrest and Strawberry snowparks. For those who prefer indoor activities Black Oak Casino offers good food and fun for the whole family, or simply enjoy the cabin with its fireplace and well equipped library.

This cabin is the perfect starting point to many destinations such as:

-Twain Harte Lake (1mile)
-Dodge Ridge Ski Resort (20 miles)
-Pinecrest Lake (18 miles)
-Strawberry (20 miles)
-Explore gold country in the town of Columbia (17 miles)
-Yosemite (85 miles)
-Visit Mountain Wineries
-Black Oak Casino (6 miles)
-Moaning Caverns (25 miles)
-Sonora (12 miles)
