Property description

**Wonderful news! Twain Harte Lake dam has been repaired and the lake will be opening on June 19th. We look forward to having the lake back and having you as our guests!!**

Winter’s Camp is a charming and cozy cabin tucked into the pines in the center of Twain Harte, with modern touches and access to Twain Harte Lake. It’s the perfect escape for families looking for a relaxing stay in a quaint Sierra town that time forgot (in a good way).

The cabin has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and can comfortably sleep eight. There is a master bedroom on the far end with a queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom. A second bedroom features a full-size bed plus twin bunk beds – perfect for the family. The spacious living room has a vaulted ceiling and a working fireplace. There is ample space to huddle around a vintage board game, relax with a book or enjoy movie night with family and friends.

Winter’s Camp has been in our family for decades. It was recently handed down a generation and given a modern refresh. All the bed and bath linens are fresh, comfortable and actually match! There is speedy wireless internet access – with a strong signal throughout the house and front deck. The living room has a 42” Sony TV in case you’ve reached pine tree and sunshine overload. The connected Roku box will let you queue up a movie from your Netflix, Amazon or Hulu account. Note: there is no standard cable TV service.

The kitchen is well-stocked with the cookware and tools you need to pull together a family feast (sharp knives, solid cookware and a cocktail shaker in case of emergency). There is fresh, new table service for eight. Enjoy meals inside when the air is cool or take advantage of the huge deck out front for dining al fresco.

Speaking of that deck: you’ll spend more time here than any other place during your stay. Perfect for relaxing, having a drink and coming up with grand plans that you’ll never get around to because you’re so content right where you are. Seriously, it’s a great deck.

Your rental comes with lake privileges, granting you access to Twain Harte Lake for your entire group. Relax on the sandy shore, take a swim in the cool water on a hot day or make your way across the lake the “The Rock” where the big kids hang out and dare each other to throw backflips off the diving board. Don’t forget to hit the Snack Shack for soft serve ice cream.

There is so much more to say, but we’ll let the pictures do some of the talking as well. The owner manages the property and lives locally if you need any help during your stay. If you have questions about Winter’s Camp, please email us.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Winter's Camp (known in our family as 'The Cabin') has been the hub of our summer vacations since the mid-80's. In 2009 Bill (pictured with his mother Natalie and granddaughter) 'retired' from the US Forest Service and moved to Twain Harte where he now lives full time. Bill owns a civil engineering firm that specializes in bridge inspection work and currently inspects all the road and trail bridges on the Stanislaus National Forest. Bill also serves on the Twain Harte Lake Association Board of Directors. In 2013 he purchased the cabin from his mother and spent the last year renovating the cabin with the help of his daughter Jody. Jody is a professional designer in San Francisco and helps Bill with the rental management and online presence of Winter's Camp.

Why the Owner Chose Twain Harte:
Why Winter in Summer? For five generations the name 'Winter' has been handed down through the first sons in our family. The youngest is now just 7. Winter's Camp has been a place where generations of our family reconnect, play, and relax together during hot summer days. So many hours have been spent reading on the deck, lounging at The Lake, and swapping stories. As a kid Jody always wanted to vacation somewhere else, but now as an adult with her own family, she loves the smell of the pine trees when they drive into Twain Harte and her children constantly ask when they get to go back.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Summers at Winter's Camp are the perfect answer to the cold Bay Area fog. We have invested in the property to provide fun Mid-Century modern design and creature comforts for the next generations to come. We look forward to sharing our little slice of summer haven with you and the people you care about.
