  • Thank you Mike!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cabin! We felt right at home, and it made for a perfect place for our family to enjoy our time together. We loved waking up every morning to the breathtaking view. It was inspiring! The neighborhood is majestic with the Alpine background in every direction. Despite the lack of snow this winter our kid's really enjoyed the smaller June Mountain Ski School. We have stayed at many nice places in Mammoth and June Lake. This will always be our first choice in the future."

  • Conveniently located

    "This house is a great jumping off point for all things you might want to do in Yosemite. About 20 - 30 minutes from the Valley, Glacier Point and Mariposa Groves. The house is very clean and well stocked. The owners greeted us upon arrival and made us feel at home. They gave us great suggestions for the week. The neighborhood is very quiet and much cooler during the summer months than in the Valley - at least 10 degrees difference. We had 2 boys (9 and 13) and had a great week of hiking, climbing and white water rafting. Would definitely recommend if you want to stay in the park but away from the congestion in the Valley."

  • off season is the best time in Mammoth

    "Love this condo, it was spacious enough for 6 adults. This is the second time we've rented this unit. The pellet stove is nice and effective. Cannot say enough about the heated bathroom floors, brilliant. The kitchenware (pots, pans, utensils) needs some replenishing. But we were able to improvise. Love all the trout decor since most of the group was there to fish. Thanks again, see you next year."

  • Charming in every way

    "The cottage was adorable, and Margaret's cookies and company just made the trip. It was a great getaway. Really enjoyed seeing all the stars at night. Only wish the trip could have been longer"

Dutch Flat Travel Tips

Vacation at a Ghost Town in Dutch Flat Vacation Rentals

Dutch Flat is actually designated as a "semi-ghost" town; and in 2009, it boasted 333 residents. However, what the town lacks in population, it makes up for in charm. Among some of the great features is the Golden Drift Museum while quaint historic buildings adorn the town. Parades are held on holidays like the 4th of July, and there's the Dutch Flat Cemetery you can visit. (What would vacationing in a ghost town be without a good cemetery?)

There is Lots to Do Near Dutch Flats

Even a ghost town has entertainment. Dutch Flat is located near mountain recreation areas, just a short distance from snow and water skiing, fishing, biking, kayaking, gold panning and hiking the mountain trails. For these events, a Gold Country High Sierra cabin would be ideal.

Dutch Flat has a Colorful History

In the 19th century, Dutch Flat was referred to as "the Athens of the Foothills." It had a thriving arts community; Mark Twain even lectured at its Opera House. Although miners originally settled Dutch Flat, it first gained prominence as an important stagecoach stop, making it one of the most important towns in Placer County. Lumber was a prominent industry, employing around 200 men, including 50 Chinese workers. By the late 1860s, with the transcontinental railroad underway, it was one of the largest Chinese settlements outside of San Francisco. German brothers, Joseph and Charles Dornbach, founded Dutch Flat. Muleskinners referred to the Dornbach's camp as "Dutch Charlie's Flat"- thus the town's name.

Vacation Rentals at Dutch Flat are Exquisite

Dutch Flat lodging offers incredible rent by owner vacation homes and available Gold Country High Sierra cabins. Because of its unique history and flavor, this is the very best way to vacation in Dutch Flat so that one can experience the rich ambiance of 19th century life.
