About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)


This comfortable and attractive 3 bedroom cabin in Strawberry, CA near Pinecrest Lake is nestled in the tall pines and cedars of Stanislaus Nat'l Forest just steps away from the South Fork of the Stanislaus River. The location is perfect for both Summer and Winter fun activities and relaxation. Watch and hear the river and the forest from the deck or front windows. Located in Strawberry at 5,300 feet elevation, it is just minutes from Pinecrest Lake recreational area, Dodge Ridge ski area, Leland Meadows snow play area and many other mountain, lake, river and snow activity destinations.

Walk to the Strawberry Store and Strawberry Inn for general shopping and dining with bar and river views. Appreciate the short, plowed access from Hwy 108 when enjoying Winter snow activities.

The recently remodeled fully equipped kitchen and bathroom contrast with the rustic knotty pine living areas and bedrooms. The large kitchen table and game table, flat-screen TV and DVD player in the living room are great for indoor activities. The large, partially covered and tree-shaded front deck with picnic table, chairs and BBQ is perfect for relaxing and dining outdoors with the view and sounds of the river and forest.

Catch a trout dinner in some great fishing holes just steps from the cabin or in Pinecrest Lake. Enjoy a swim in the large heated pool in summer. Toast marshmallows at the riverside fire pit or play horseshoes, all located right on the grounds (shared with 9 other cabins). Have a large group? Ask our manager about renting additional neighboring cabins.

All bedding, linens, towels dishes and utensils are provided at no additional cost. There is no cleaning charge as long as the cabin is left clean. Guests do not need to make up beds or clean bathrooms.

Reduced rates are available for rentals exceeding 2 weeks, and for Winter days when Dodge Ridge ski area is not operating.

This cabin is one of 10 individually owned and furnished vacation homes within the Rivers Resort just off Hwy 108 at the Strawberry bridge. It is made available for rentals through a local property manager who meticulously cleans and maintains the cabin. The owners' pride of ownership, combined with local property management and shared amenities of the Resort, provide for your pleasant vacation experience.

About Martha Weathers, Property Manager/Host

We are a recently retired couple who have loved to come to the mountains every year. Camping at nearby Pinecrest Lake has been our favorite vacation over the years. We love to come up to our cabin in the Spring, Summer and Fall. However, we are not Winter sports enthusiasts, so we have the opportunity to make the cabin available to those who are. Being retired, we have the flexibility to rent out the cabin all year during popular vacation periods and still use the cabin ourselves when it is not rented.

Martha Weathers, Property Manager/Host purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Martha Weathers, Property Manager/Host chose California

We love the location of this cabin on the river and in the forest while being conveniently close to a store and restaurant. We also love swimming, boating and fishing at nearby Pinecrest Lake. With Dodge Ridge being so close, it is truly a perfect location for year-round activities. With the cabin being located within a resort, the shared amenities, property management and homeowners association are a huge bonus.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin retains the feel of being in the mountains and great outdoors while providing many of the amenities of our surburban home. The heated swimming pool and fire pit are great bonuses.
