About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

The Lake is full and ready for you. Nana's Nook is a hide-away for a family to have fun and get away from the busy life. Relaxing on the deck with refreshments or a book is a wonderful way to get away from 'it all.' The large bedroom is a wonderful place for the kids to hang out with games or a movie or their choice. A short drive to Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort gives it a perfect location.

About Julie Bretz

My family loves the peace and quiet of the mountains. At the same time they love the activities of playing at the lake, walking the trails and snow activities.

Julie Bretz purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Julie Bretz chose Cold Springs

Pinecrest Lake is full, stocked and ready for your summer visit. It is within 5 miles of Nana's Nook and there is great fishing and lake activities. Dodge Ridge (7 miles) is a ski/snowboard resort. Snow play is as close as the back of the cabin. Stream fishing and mountain walks and climbing are also nearby.

For those who like, a casino is apx, 20 min. away. As is the little gold mining community of Columbia.

A market and 2 great restaurants are within a mile of the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We love that it is a 2+ hour drive from home. Close enough for visitors and a short trip, yet far enough to really feel away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

Even though we have to drive to Pinecrest Lake, when we get home we are in the quietness of our own place. It is well worth the drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time. The location is quiet, yet close to many activities. We loved our day at the lake, walked lots of trails and even considered going to Yosemite, but we decided we loved the Cold Springs area enough to hang out here.

You will love staying at this cabin!

We enjoyed our stay in Nana's Nook. The cabin was really cozy and warm. It is pet friendly, so we were so happy to have our girl with us. Thank you Julie!

Easy access, casual cozy style of the cabin, great deck with view of trees; quiet.

  • 5 of 5

As first time cabin renters in our "post-travel trailer" experience...we absolutely loved our choice of the "Nana's Nook" cabin to get some needed mountain/lake time. Such a comfortable, cozy relaxed style in the cabin we were hoping for; did not disappoint. Aside from providing our own sheets, towels and food, everything we could have needed was amply provided for. We SO enjoyed the deck; the "quiet" was so relaxing! ! All the furniture is also very comfortable; the decorative touches, including quilts, made it so familiar and welcoming. Conveniently located only five miles from Pinecrest lake, one of our favorite places for many years, just added to its appeal for us. We would definitely like to go back!

Stayed here after a backpacking trip in the Sierra. Peaceful spot, with a nice deck. Close to Pinecrest Lake. We will rent again when we return to this area.

Great location near Pinecrest lake. Loved sitting on the deck overlooking the pine trees enjoying coffee in the morning and BBQing dinner in the evening. Cabin is clean, comfy and well stocked with cooking needs. We had a fabulous time and highly recommend Nana's Nook! Thank you!

Very nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "Nana's Nook". It is a comfortable cabin and is well equipped & maintained. It is only a short drive to Pinecrest Lake which made it very convenient . And having Mia's restaurant so nearby was a benefit---great pizza! We especially enjoyed spending time on the beautiful deck playing board games, eating our meals--and just relaxing! Thank you Julie for sharing your great cabin with us---we would definitely like to rent it again!
