Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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 28 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 !!

Why the Owner Chose Twain Harte, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
