Property description

About 10 minutes away from Pinecrest Lake, our 'cabin' is really an open, bright 1900 sq ft home, with all the comforts:
Three bedrooms (two upstairs, one downstairs), and a loft with two single beds
Large outdoor deck with a view into the forest
Three bathrooms, instant-on hot water
Full kitchen (gas stove, electric oven), pots/pans, dishwasher, microwave, coffee makers - drip and Keurig, rice maker, muffin tins, blender, ice cream maker & more...
High-efficiency double pane windows, skylights, vaulted ceiling
Central heating and air, Jøtul wood burning stove in living room
Large plasma TV with 7.1 surround sound, DVD player, antenna with local broadcast TV
DVDs, CDs, and a stocked bookcase
Full laundry area with washer/dryer
Dyson 'Animal' Vacuum

Downstairs:
Nintendo Wii and games, including Rock Band instruments
Third bathroom with shower
Third bedroom, with large closet, bunk bed & queen bed.

Our home is in the Cold Springs area (in Tuolumne county - not the Cold Springs near Placerville), in the 'Peter Pam' (sic) subdivision. That puts it about 5-10 minutes from Strawberry and Pinecrest lake. Elevation is about 5600 feet.

It's a wonderful place to sit on the deck and watch the stars spinning in infinity, or hike right from the driveway down into the Stanislaus Forest, undisturbed by anything except the wind.

And, yes, the outside needs a paint refresh. Coming!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We're California natives, living in the Bay Area. As nice as it can be there, sometimes you have to get away. But, until we retire we can only spend little bits of time at Bambi's End - and we'd love to have you as our guest when we're not there.

Why the Owner Chose Pinecrest:
After a few years at the Lair of the Bear, we realized we wanted more time in such a gorgeous area. We patiently waited for a comfortable, family friendly home to become available - and couldn't believe our luck to find this home. The previous owner lived here most of the year and took meticulous care of it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are plenty of places to rent in the area, but our home will immediately impress you with its open, bright, welcome. We've tried to make it as comfortable as possible for guests (and owners).
