About Wendy Adelman

We are a family of 5 who purchased this home so that our children would have access to the gorgeous woods, rivers and lakes around here and learn about the rich CA gold history. We have had so many wonderful family memories here in our warm and welcoming home and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Wendy Adelman purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Wendy Adelman chose Gold Country & High Sierra

Calaveras County offers a wonderful mix of gorgeous natural resources as well as a rich history. There is so much to do and see here.

What makes this cabin unique

Relaxing on the wrap-around -deck listening to nature with a good book in hand. Visiting all the gorgeous mountain lakes and streams. The mountain biking is superb. We love bringing our kids to Pinebrook Lake which offers the nicest sand around, swim platforms, inner tubes, and flush toilets! We also love how close the house is to the upper mountain lakes such as Alpine Lake.

You have found the perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

When you rent a home from someone else, you expect there to be at least one aspect you don't like. That was not the case here. The house was clean, the location quiet, the beds were comfortable with warm comfy blankets, the shower pressure was good...

There were a lot of board games and puzzles for us to play with the kids. All the ones we used still had all their pieces. Plus toys for varying ages. My two year old found quite a bit.

We explored moaning caverns, Natural Bridges (It's a short hike to a river that runs through the earth, you can swim through a "cave" to the other side), Calaveras Big Trees and then we also drove up Hwy 4 further east to see the beauty that is Mosquito Lake and stopped at Lake Alpine on the way back for kayaking and a picnic.

Wendy was also great to work with an obviously an experienced renter.

We felt right at home as soon as walked in. We will be back for sure!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for 4 relaxing days during an extended weekend. Cabin clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of utensils and board games to spend the day. The grounds were great too. Secluded and quiet.

Summer fun at the cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great! My husband and I along with our daughter, son in law and three young grandchildren stayed for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The cabin accommodated our group wonderfully especially with 2 bathrooms. There was plenty of room to spread out and we felt it very safe for the children ages 2, 4 and 7. This cabin is very clean and updated providing everything you need. It's very nicely decorated!

We spent a day swimming and relaxing at Pinebrook Lake. Great place with kids! We went to White Pines Lake several times for fishing. Our grandsons all caught their first fish (and many more). The Blue Gill along the shore were plentiful and the shoreline safe for the kids. They learned about catch and release. There is a nice playground there that the kids enjoyed too. We also hiked at Big Trees State Park and Lake Alpine. We took a picnic each day and enjoyed our time outdoors. The weather was beautiful with bright blue sky and sweet pine scent.

I would recommend this cabin to all my friends and family.

Excellent back yard

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. I especially loved the fact that it was backed on to the forest. My kids could go on hikes and I could sit on the deck and read. The place had everything we needed. It was clean and well organized. There were tons of games - my wife and I enjoyed teaching the kids how to play Battleship!

Perfect for a small family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a quick, impromptu family gathering. With less than a week's notice we were able to book flights and this amazing place. The owner was so responsive and great to work with. The property is beautifully located in the Sierras and is a great retreat. The house is awesome! We especially enjoyed the nearby lake that is included! We'll be back.
