Pinecrest cabin description

Get away from it all in charming Cabin #9 with unobstructed views of the pristine Stanislaus River in mile-high Strawberry, California. Relax reading a novel, playing cards, or sipping a glass of wine on the front deck as the babbling river provides the perfect background music. Stroll down to the river to catch some fresh rainbow trout and grill them up for dinner. After stocking up at the Strawberry Store just down the lane, you’ll enjoy cooking the rest of your meal in the fully-equipped kitchen.

With three bedrooms, there are beds for up to six people, with more sleeping space in the living room. One-and-a-half bathrooms afford space for the whole family. The cozy, cedar-walled cabin is tastefully decorated in harmony with its forest setting. But you don’t have to leave all the luxuries of home behind – there’s a new flat-screen TV with premium cable (including HBO) and a DVD player.

The cabin is just two miles from Pinecrest Lake, where you can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, or just taking in the beautiful views from a lazy day at the beach. Or spend your day hiking in the wilderness, fishing in mountain streams, or picnicking in Alpine meadows among the jaw-dropping beauty of the high Sierra, just a short drive up the hill. When you’re done, you can enjoy a splash in the pool on the property. At night, you can take in the magnificent starry sky as you toast marshmallows by the fire ring. Or enjoy a drink and dinner with the locals at the Strawberry Lodge across the road or at one of the other restaurants nearby.

Winter offers its own opportunities for outdoor fun. Warm up by the gas stove after a long day of skiing at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, just a 15-minute drive away. Snowmobile enthusiasts will appreciate the terrain just 6 miles up the highway, where the road is closed and the snow remains unplowed during the winter. But don’t worry about access to the cabin itself – the driveway is level and plowed year-round.

Make sure to ask for Cabin #9 when you call for reservations. The cabin is individually owned but is managed by the Rivers Resort. We’re sure you’ll enjoy your stay!

                  About: My father built a cabin in Strawberry with his business partner in the 1960s. We spent many family vacations there as our children were growing up. When the family sold the cabin after my father passed away, we looked at other properties in the area so that we could continue to enjoy everything that Strawberry has to offer. We were excited to find this cozy cabin on the river, and we hope our guests enjoy their visits as much as we do.
