About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This unique mid-century modern cabin style (1950's) house sleeps 6 comfortably. It is located in the scenic Strawberry community off of Highway 50, 100 yards from the American River in the Strawberry forest canyon. There are beautiful views of Lover's Leap from our cabin with floor to ceiling (9') windows in the Living Room and Rose Room. The cabin is equipped with new, efficient forced air heating, remodeled kitchen with granite countertops and has a beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace that adds ambiance and additional warmth.

It is in walking distance to the historic Pony Express Trail and Lover's Leap, a hot spot for rock climbers and hikers. Enjoy the historic Strawberry Lodge, a walk away, for breakfast, dinner or a nightcap or walk to the Strawberry Station to pick up some groceries or hang out with the locals, climbers and the owners, Squirrel and Jen.

An hour and a half from Sacramento, just before the usual chain control at Twin Bridges and 5 miles before Sierra-at-Tahoe our cabin is ideal for skiers and riders, without the hassle of driving over Echo Summit. There are many recreational activities to enjoy right out the front door and even more a short drive away.

The Pacific Crest Trail, the Pony Express Trail, Lover's Leap and Horse Tail Falls Trail are minutes from the cabin. The cabin is close to a handful of mountain recreational lakes including Echo Summit Lake, Ice House Lake, and Cody Lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We both enjoy outdoor activities like surfing, jogging, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, back country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, swimming and camping. I love to decorate and work on home improvement projects. Fulfilling my life long dream of owning a cabin in the Sierras has given me another fantastic projected that I love. It is so fun decorating the cabin in mountain/lodge decor!

Why the Owner Chose Strawberry, El Dorado County, CA, USA:
Vacationing in Tahoe was always a favorite memory growing up. It has always been a dream to own a little cabin in the woods. We love the seclusion, skiing and outdoor adventures in Strawberry/ Twin Bridges. It's the perfect place to bring kids, and I'm glad we can give our kids the same life long memories of enjoying the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin has so many fun adventures right out the front door. Walking to the American River to relax by the river or swim in the pools is a fantastic summer activity. Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Pony Express Trail, Horse tail Falls Trail are always beautiful. Bringing a plant guide to help identify Sierra wild flowers is always a joy. Hiking from Camp Sacramento to the top of Lover's Leap is an easy hike with spectacular views as the reward! Not to mention, the great lakes nearby to fish, swim, boat and relax by the shore.
