Twin Bridges lodge description

LARGE, Family Cabin right ON THE RIVER, by Sierra At Tahoe or snowmobile right out the front door. You can walk to the ski slopes if you are an experienced skier. Our lodge is tucked away, not far off Highway 50 with only 5 other privately owned cabins on our cul-da-sac road. Our road and driveway are plowed in the winter. There are endless hiking areas, sleding right next to the cabin and loads of wintertime fun!!!

We are also right on the South Fork of the American RIVER with 170 ft. of river frontage. During the summer, it is incredible to sit by the water and relax in a hammock or relaxing lounge chair.

As far as furnishings, the downstairs is all wood and decorated with a 'fishing' room (king bed) and 'ski' room (double bed). Upstairs is freshly painted and decorated with a 'moose (queen bed), deer (king bed-master), and bear (2 twins and 2 doubles)' room for the kids. We have replaced the living room furniture (summer 09 and 14) and the master bedroom furniture and queen furniture upstairs)

We have a great kitchen with full appliances and a huge dining room table. Great for a family gathering for eating or hanging out by the fireplace in our large living room and watch the snow fall.

The cabin is great in any season and Lake Tahoe is only about ten minutes down the hill. We are five miles from Strawberry Lodge. The cabin is away from the crowded downtown area, but close enough to be there in minutes. Our location is awesome for Sierra At Tahoe, 1.5 miles from the entrance.

We are in a heavy snow area during the winter, so you may need four-wheel drive and or chains. Cabin will need to be left clean as found, minimal cleaning available. You can bring your own sheets, if you want, so you don't have to do the linens before you leave.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: My husband and I own and operate Boyle Ranch, a Reining Horse show horse barn in Ione, Ca. Barbi is also a Real Estate Agent in Sutter Creek, Ca. We have two children and we all show horses competitively thru out the US.

              Why the Owner Chose Twin Bridges:
              We purchased our vacation rental in this area because we wanted to have a place to go that was great in the winter, was close to a Ski Resort (Sierra at Tahoe) and also a fabulous place in the summer (170 foot of South Fork of the American River). We spent a year trying to get the owner to sell to us and finally was able to complete the purchase. We also wanted to be away from the Casino's and have some privacy, but close enough (15 mins) to be able to go there if we wanted to. We truely found Location Location Location.

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              Our cabin is large, peaceful and a wonderful place if you like snow or you want to be in the forest in the summer/spring. It is close to Highway 50, for convienence, but also very, very, private. Great hiking, Horsetail Falls and Echo Lakes are very close and a must see. You can hike to Camp Sacramento for dinner in the summer or sit out by the river at night and listen to the water go by. We especially like sitting in a hammock and reading a book.
