Lodge Luxe

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and 7 boys stayed at the Lone Star Lodge to play in the snow and celebrate my son's 10th birthday. The skiing at Dodge Ridge was fantastic but the best part of our birthday get away were the evenings spent back at the house. The media room has a huge 70 inch TV which thoroughly entertained all of the boys. They brought their own DVD's but the house was already stocked with many new movies. While the boys were upstairs enjoying the TV, the adults were outside in the hot tub, which I must say say was in pristine condition. After a long day of skiing the hot tub was just what we needed for our aching muscles. It was the perfect gathering place for our three couples and gang of boys. Thanks for the memories!

Owner's Response: Santa visited the Lone Star Lodge and left a giant, new 70 inch Smart TV in the media room! Glad to hear the men and boys approved. Isn't the hot tub the best after a long day in the snow? Happy birthday to your son and hope to see you all again soon.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Every year we rent a vacation house for a family retreat. The Lone Star Lodge is by far our most favorite. We had six adults and eight kids between us. The kids loved the huge upstairs media room and the large flat yards. The adults loved having a separate space downstairs to relax by the fire. All our beds were new and extremely comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is for gourmet cooks and all four of the bathrooms are beautiful with rustic tile and wood. We have stayed in other homes in the area and the Lone Star has the best of everything. Being able to walk five minutes to the village center with all of the restaurants was perfect, yet the house was far enough away to be very quiet. By far, everyone agreed that our evenings together in the hot tub was the very best. The hot tub put this house over the top in terms of vacation rentals amenities. We will be returning to the Lone Star soon for ski season.

Owner's Response: We agree that we have the best location! It's great to be able to walk to town and not have to pack everyone into the car to enjoy and evening out. I think the hot tub is the most fun the during snow season. We look forward to seeing you this winter.

Relaxation in the Sierra Foothills

  • 5 of 5

I have arranged week-long family vacations in a half-dozen California & Arizona locations over the years, and Lone Star Lodge is the property we've most enjoyed. Features we appreciated were the large, modern kitchen (since we prepared all of our meals in the home), spacious dining area, private back yard with many seating options, walk-in stone showers, attractive decor, and lake membership. It was so relaxing to sit outside and read a good book, and there are easy-drive options such as Calaveras Big Trees so visit.

In many rental properties, because of the construction and layout, once one family member is up in the morning, the entire household is aware of the noise. Not so here - folks were able to sleep late or stay up late without rousing others. We also enjoyed the drive from the central coast, choosing to travel off the main I-5 route through small communities to sample their bakeries, fruit stands, and diners.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. The Lone Star was remodeled to be a vacation rental which is one reason multiple families can stay together and still have some peace and quiet from the entire group. Having four bathrooms is also helpful for large family gatherings. We are so happy you had such a positive experience!

Amazing and Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lonestar cabin was a wonderful experience. A lot of work was clearly put into this cabin, the movies games and puzzles provided were a very nice touch and provided a very enriching and fun experience. The cabin itself was located very close to the Twain Harte downtown area and was actually within walking distance. In addition, it was located close to many beautiful trails and lovely scenery. Overall this was a great place for me to take my girlfriend and I will most certainly rent again. Thank you Jackie for giving both of us a wonderful weekend out of town and keep up the amazing work!

Phenomenal Retreat Location

  • 5 of 5

We brought 50 of our highest capacity leaders and we stayed in a few different houses throughout Twain Harte. The Lone Star became our main hub of all activity because of the elegance an size. We absolutely loved our stay here and highly recommend it for any type of getaway. It truly is a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are happy we could accommodate your special retreat and you could all gather as a group at the Lone Star. We frequently have groups rent more than one property at a time and I'm told they always end up wanting to stay at the Lone Star. We hope we see you next year.

Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lone Star Lodge and skied at Dodge to celebrate an 11th birthday. The house was perfect for our group of four families (7 adults and 8 kids). Everyone slept comfortably and we had plenty of room to relax. The kids loved the media room and claimed the upstairs as their hang out, and the adults loved the comfy couches and fireplace downstairs - it was perfect. We cooked a big birthday dinner and there was nothing we needed that the house did not have. Jackie and Alan were great and so helpful. Jackie even called the afternoon we were to arrive to warn of the icy conditions and the best way to the home given the road conditions. Everyone enjoyed the stay - our only complaint was that we had to leave! Before we left, we knew we'd want to come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing the first review of the new year! Dodge Ridge is a great place for kids and they have classes for skiers of all levels. Thank the kids for taking such good care of the upstairs media room. I'm glad you all had so much fun and could celebrate a special birthday.
