Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12 in beds)

COZY UP TO THE FIREPLACE WITH MORNING COFFEE or with an Irish Coffee after a long fun filled day.


But if you must check in we do have internet access.

A large kitchen, fully equiped down to the napkins and a even larger diningroom for family gatherings. The living room surrounds the fireplace and a game table sits under the big picture windows. It'a 2100sq ft of forest views.


A lot of thought went into the lay out of the upstairs, it's open and airy but really warm and inviting and because the livingroom is upstairs you feel like you are in the trees. Located downstairs are 4 ample sized bedrooms and two full baths. The bedrooms are naturally cooler downstairs and better for sleeping.

But it's the peace and quiet that sets this area of the Sierra Mountains apart. If you have never been to Pinecrest you need to come. 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' was filmed near by in Kennedy Meadows. In fact, as a little boy my father gave the starring actress, Ingrid Bergman, a ride around the lake in his boat. She paid him a whole quarter and he was thrilled.

Those who have stayed at the cabin tell us their kids and grandkids ask them 'when are we going to our cabin in the trees again?'.

We want you to relax, rest and enjoy the quiet but for those of you who are more adventurous, hiking, boating, fishing (they stock the lake w/ fish for you to catch) sailing and sunbathing are all near by at Pinecrest Lake during the summer. Kennedy Meadows offers horseback riding and fine rib dinner. Twain Hart Golf Course is just 15 minutes down the hill and in the winter Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is just 15 minutes up the hill. Go sledding at Leland Meadows, cross country skiing at Dodge Ridge and ice skating in Long Barn, all are close by. You can also just enjoy watching it snow outside from the comfort of the cabin but make sure you build at least one snowman before you leave and just outside off the terrace is the perfect slope for sledding.

At the end of the day you will be in front of the fireplace before you know it. The 4 bedrooms w/ luxurious down comforters and soft sheets and pillows offer you a restful sleep. We hope your stay is memorable.

Check in time is 3:00P.M. and check out time is no later than 11:00A.M. Damage deposit of $200 required.

Noise: This is a peaceful, quiet residential neighborhood. Please respect our neighbors. This is not a 'Party House'. If our neighbors are disrupted you will be asked to leave.

About Rochelle

Tom and I (Rochelle) grew up camping at Pinecrest Lake as kids. Camping with family and friends at Pinecrest Lake was our most favorite vacation. We would swim and hike all day long and at night we took flashlights and popcorn and went to the movies under the stars showing at the lake. Later when we were supposed to be asleep we would play tricks on our sisters making noises like a bear outside of their tents. It was all great fun. In 1999 we had the opportunity to purchase what looks very much like a Lodge. We jumped at the chance and have since enjoyed many family weekends at the cabin.

Rochelle purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Rochelle chose Gold Country & High Sierra

When you have as many childhood memories as our children do at Pinecrest Lake there is no other place we want to be. About 1/2 hour into the drive up the hill we can feel life's busy (ness) fall away and we start to decompress. Everyone sleeps a little later and spends more time just talking over a cup of coffee. Now that our children are grown it's the perfect place to unwind and spend time with them in a familiar place.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to start the day with morning coffee on the deck and plan the day. We are a very active family so we generally head out and spend the day hiking, boating or fishing. The idea of reading on the terrace would be great but we always think we might be missing out on something fun. We end the day with wine and dinner on the terrace watching for shooting stars or head over to Mia's for an amazing Italian meal. Back at the cabin it's nice to have 4 private bedrooms. We generally put all the little kids in one room. They are still trying to scare their sisters with bear noises.

We loved it

We are two families with four teenagers and this cabin was perfect for us. We really enjoyed the living room with stone fireplace and the big kitchen and dining area. Easy access to lots of snow sports. The cabin had everything we needed, we would definitely rent it again

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the long weekend and loved every minute. The house was a great size for two families to share. The kids loved the bunk bed room. The family/living area was well sized and comfortable and the kitchen well stocked to make cooking easy. Hoping to come back.

Wonderful Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here. It was roomy and we had everything we needed, even in a snowstorm. We lost electricity, but had plenty of heat, lanterns, and water. We were still able to use the cook top to prepare food. We got to sled and enjoy 3 feet of snow. This is a great place to make family memories. We can't wait to go back.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is all about family time. We loved the open great room for relaxing and spending time with the kids. The open concept windows provide beautiful views of the forest, snow and the mountains. There is plenty of room to just lounge around, read a book, or play a board game. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedrooms are cozy, which provides for a restful sleep. The Fireplace upstairs is awesome and provides a lot of heat for the cabin. There is a veranda off the great room that provides an additional entertainment area for BBQ and casual conversations. Our kids loved going on walks each evening in the neighborhood to just look at the trees and nature. The cabin is very close to both Dodge Ridge and Pinecrest Lake. There is a wonderful snow park just 20 minutes up the hill that provides a wonderful play area for kids. We would come back to this cabin. The owner was wonderful, she was very organized and fun to work with. She was available by phone for some simple questions we had on our first day.
