The Lodge near Pinecrest and Dodge Ridge

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


About the property

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

COZY UP TO THE FIREPLACE WITH MORNING COFFEE or a glass of wine after a long fun filled day. But if you must check in, we have internet access.

The living room is upstairs and surrounded by big picture windows, so you feel like you are in the trees. There are 4 ample sized bedrooms and two full baths downstairs. The bedrooms are naturally cooler downstairs and better for sleeping.

The Pinecrest area offers 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. 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.

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.

Rochelle purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Rochelle chose Cold Springs

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.

What makes this cabin unique

The best part of the cabin is that the living room & kitchen are upstairs and have the best views of the Sierras.

It's nice to have 4 private bedrooms. We generally put all the little kids in one room. Great fun!

what we liked....

  • 5 of 5

We liked getting our questions answered promptly before we left. We liked the view, the comfortable beds, plenty of space for 8 adults and 2 teens, the well-stocked kitchen where we did a Lot of cooking (but it took us a while to remember that high-altitude cooking can be much slower than here in the Bay Area), the fun and interesting decor, the place to pitch horseshoes, the nearness to snow and to Pinecrest lake, the deck, the patio....

We had a lovely long weekend. Thanks!

Cabin was clean and furnished as described. The Grandkids had a great time and it snowed the last day of our trip to cap it off.Thanks for letting us use your cabin.

Beautiful stay! Photos did not do property justice!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the property, 4 bedrooms on first floor when you walk in, two bathrooms both with showers, then having living room and kitchen/dining room upstairs, was PERFECT! I did not feel the photos are able to fully showcase how nice that was. I also feel I bombarded Rochelle with emails prior to our stay but she was very helpful and attentive ;)

Tips not communicated on VRBO site include: Fireplace is gas so no need for firewood, check in was 4 p.m. and check out was 11 a.m. during the time of our stay, horseshoe pit available and shoes in the outside closet, driveway will accommodate more than two vehicles if lined up behind one another (we had 4), and yes, bring hand and bath towels! Additionally, the address listed upon booking may not work for Google maps, so try using the town of Long Barn, not Pinecrest (Pinecrest is only used for the lake nearby). Cold Springs has a small market if you forget anything. Also, keep in mind, no cell service in this area but wifi worked great!

Will be requesting this cabin again if I chose to revisit the area.

Thanks Rochelle, hope it helps!

Great cabin in the woods with a lovely view of the mountains and sunset from the deck. It has just about everything you can think of that you would want in a cabin, is very clean and comfortable. Loved the rustic feel, with amazing décor. Thanks for sharing your family cabin with us. We loved it!!
