About Robert Colombo

Hello to all new and returning renters of Pondering Pines Cabin ! We are the Colombo family ! Robert , Susan , Nicole , Tyler and Dominic Colombo. We are the new owners of the Pondering Pines Cabin! We live in Petaluma Ca. I've worked as a garbageman for the last 31 years in San Francisco and my wife is a stay at home mom. We look forward to your stay. We will try to make your visit a great experience !!

Robert Colombo purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Robert Colombo chose Gold Country & High Sierra

My family has been vacationing in Twain Harte for about ten years now. We were looking for a vacation place that had everything. Twain Harte is that place. Twain Harte offers a beautiful swimming and fishing only lake, restaurants within walking distance, Pee Wee golf, hiking trails , golf course , movies in the park , only a few hours from the bay area , snow skiing and much more. Its been a long time dream of mine to own my own vacation place in the mountains. With the support of my wife we were able to make it work.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is located on a very quiet street yet its within walking distance to restaurants , pee wee golf and your morning coffee and fresh baked scone !!!. Its has a large deck and sits on about 1/4 of an acre.We spend every morning having coffee on the deck and every evening bbqing and enjoying our great view as the sun sets. We are very fortunate that all of our neighboring cabins are non vacation rentals. This keeps our area especially quiet.

Deer can often be seen coming up from the creek down the hill behind the cabin.The creek is too far to hike to. Sorry kids :) On the nights we get back too late from the lake or playing in the snow we often walk to town for a bite at one of the local restaurants. 'The Rock' is very popular!The cabin was built in 1937 but has all the comforts of home. YES! It has central heat !!! We love Twain Harte and we love our cabin. I know you will too.

Cabin Near Town

We had a great time exploring Twain Harte and the Pinecrest Area. This would be a great property for any family to rent year round. We had fun up at Dodge Ridge playing in the snow, and I want to go back in the summer for some lake fun. The owner was very attentive and friendly!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a great location. We walked to town with our children to get ice cream for them, and happy hour for us. Then, back to the cabin to bbq dinner! We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck, where we saw a ton of wildlife. We saw deer, a bear, and a bobcat all from the back deck. Great spot for a little trip.

Could Not Be Any Better

  • 5 of 5

Awesome, perfect, quaint, well described, better than expected! These are some of the terms I would use to describe the wonderful cabin that is Pondering Pines. I initially sought out this cabin due to it being on the lower end of the pricing spectrum, but also have all the accommodations that would meet our needs. The owner is a fantastic communicator and the property is amazing. The next time we rent a cabin in Twain Harte, it will absolutely be Pondering Pines.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have your family stay at our cabin. I have to give all the credit to my wife pertaining to the comfort,decor and the well stocked kitchen. Then I take it from there! I like to be 100% available to our renters if any concerns or questions arise.I hope you guys will return and take advantage of the 10% discount on a 7 night or more stay. If you enjoyed the winter in Twain Harte just wait til you see what Twain Harte has to offer in the summer ! Have a great summer! Thanks again! Robert and Susan Colombo

A great quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect little getaway for our two families that do an annual trip to the snow. Plenty of room for two families and I would definitely consider staying here again. The hospitality was excellent and the place was very clean. Two big thumbs up!

ABSOLUTLEY WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better place for me and family to spend a weekend at. Robert and I were in communication up until my arrival. The directions and instructions were very detailed and simple. I was amazed at all that this place was equipped with. We really didn't have to bring anything but our food. We enjoyed all the movies and games that were already there for use. This is the first family I have taken with my parents since I was a kid, so this was very special to me. I definitely look forward to coming back. I fell in love with this place! Thanks again to the Colombos!
