About Owner

My husband and I are originally from the Bay Area.. We have lived in Sacramento for 25 years where I run a home staging business. When I am not staging , I enjoy working with clay and upholstery. You will see examples of my work as well as the work of other artists throughout Casa Bella.

Owner purchased this Cabin in 1965

Why Owner chose Twain Harte

Casa Bella has been in my family for 53 years. In 1965 our family went to Twain Harte for a two week summer vacation. We rented a rustic little cabin. As soon as we arrived we were all charmed by the town, the woodsy surroundings, and wonderful Twain Harte Lake. My mother immediately found a cabin to buy. We have enjoyed many wonderful times here over the years and hope you will, too.

What makes this Cabin unique

I like to take a project to work on while vacationing. I am always inspired in Twain Harte, and can find plenty of room to work, either on the deck or on the wide kitchen counter. When I need a break, I hike up the road, then down and around to a beautiful little lake. I love the smell of Twain Harte. It comes from a plant called Mountain Misery. I can't tell you why it is so named, but it is a delightful smell and it tells me I'm home.

                                                      Don M.San Carlos

                                                      We were looking for a a quiet, romantic weekend get away. This cabin is well maintained, clean and decorated very nice. It's just a couple blocks from town, has a semi-private deck and we loved our time there! Breakfast in the morning on the deck then wine and appetizers in the afternoon on the deck. We had a wonderful long weekend and hope to return many times. Thank you Natalie!!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you, Don. After the summer vacationers have returned home and the days become a little cooler, Twain Harte has a completely different charm. We love taking walks, going wine tasting, and watching movies. We're glad you found out about one of Twain Harte's "other" seasons.


                                                      Sharon M.

                                                      We can't wait to go back to Casa Bella. The moment we walked in the door you felt right at home. The cabin was decorated so cute and had everything you needed. The deck was perfect to enjoy morning coffee, BBQ and have game night. Natalie was so easy to communicate with. Can't say enjoy about our wonderful stay.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you, Sharon. You are always welcome at Casa Bella. Summer is my favorite season, but all seasons are lovely in Twain Harte. Please return and see for yourselves.

                                                      A gem in the mountains!!

                                                      David B.

                                                      Such a great place to relax and get away!! Very clean, has everything you need with all the comforts of home. Downtown Twain Harte is only a 5 minute walk to great restaurants, coffee shop, ice cream shop, mini golf. Communications with the owner couldn't be any better!!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you, David, we appreciate your opinion. You and your family have been coming to our cabin for years. Guess what? Casa Bella has gotten even better. We just installed air conditioning! It is more comfortable than ever.

                                                      So great! Roomy comfortable very nice!

                                                      LeeAnn O.

                                                      Had such a great time. Eating out on the deck, walked to the bakery each morning such a treat. Loved the decor, kitchen and bathroom really nice. Deck is really nice. Quiet and so relaxing. The lake is so great too. Hope to return soon!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you, LeeAnn. We always hope that our guests will enjoy Casa Bella as much as we do. Lazing on the deck, strolling to town, floating on the lake... Throw in a margarita (or two) and you have my idea of a perfect vacation.

                                                      Please come back and stay again. All seasons are beautiful in Twain Harte.

                                                      Great Cabin in Twain Harte!

                                                      Georgia S.

                                                      We stayed at Casa Bella for 2 nights this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. Similar to the other reviews, the cabin was warm and very clean upon our arrival. We were a family of 4 and the kids loved the great selection of VHS/DVDs available to them at the cabin!. The cabin's décor was so cute and the quality of the bed linens and towels were superb!. It was our first time in Twain Harte and the cabin is within walking distance to town. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you, Georgia. I'm pleased to hear how much you and your family enjoyed your stay at Casa Bella. We try to make our guests comfortable, but much of the credit goes to our wonderful manager, who has the cabin warm and inviting upon guests' arrival, and our cabin cleaner who does an impeccable job of keeping the cabin sparkling clean.

                                                      I hope you will come back and stay at Casa Bella again.

                                                      PERFECT little get away!!!

                                                      We loved Casa Bella. A perfect mixture of rustic & up to date. Beautifully decorated with gorgeous high ceilings and light fixtures in the shape of stars.

                                                      The cabin was warm and clean upon our arrival. We immediately felt at home. Great choice of movies, books, and board games to keep the family busy during the cold winder nights. Loved waking up to a group of deer in the yard!

                                                      Natalie has done an amazing job & we will definitely be back soon!
