This cabin is at the end of the street and very private.

About John

Our family of 4 has enjoyed this cabin all summer and have had fun making it perfect for guests. Our daughter is 8 and son is 4 and they want to go every weekend because it's so much fun!

John purchased this cabin in 2011

Why John chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We love the Pinecrest/Sonora/Twain Harte area because it's so beautiful and and an easy quick getaway! Our cabin in Long Barn is in the perfect location. Just minutes from Twain Harte/Sonora with restaurnts and minutes from Pinecrest/Dodge Ridge. Perfect getaway any time of the year!

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the natural beauty of the trees all around us and the luxury of taking nice strolls in this private community.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 rented this great cabin for a weekend in the snow and it didn't disappoint. Cabin was clean and cozy. The kids had a blast sledding. Would love to rent it again sometime.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay and the Long Barn cabin! Very family friendly in that the cabin is in a gated community with a park and lots of places to take kids on a walk. We were there in December after some snow fall and the cabin was literally a 2 minute walk to a great sledding hill and meadow. We didn't go anywhere else to sled because the kids loved it so much! We had two families and still did fine with the one bedroom. Kitchen is small but did the job. Overall, a great experience for both the adults and kids! John, the owner, was super helpful and always responsive!

A family-friendly and cozy cabin close to Dodge Ridge ski area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here along with another family for President's Day weekend. Four kids and four adults. We were there to ski at Dodge Ridge and it was a convenient location for us. We had a nice time and will consider staying there again. The owner, John, was very helpful and courteous. At our next visit, we will take kitchen basics with us, i.e. salt, pepper, cooking oil, sugar, tea, coffee, etc. Previous renters had cleaned out the kitchen before we arrived. Overall it was a great place to stay and very kid-friendly.

Amazing Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem of a place gave my family a snow vacation they will never forget! The location was perfect...right at the end of a little cul-de-sac and next to a hill that my children could not stop sledding down. The cabin was stocked with everything we needed- a loft for the kids, and a first floor room for mom and dad, a DVD player for enjoying family movie night complete with kid friendly movies, cable TV and best of all plenty of snow. The upstairs loft had one room with three beds, and the second room with two beds so there was plenty of space for our family of 5. John was easy to work with and answered all of our questions. He was one of the most communicative property owners we have worked with on HomeAway and easy to get a hold of when we had questions prior to our arrival. We will be back again and again. Thank you Brasil Family for sharing your home away from home with us!

Thank you John and family for a fabulous stay at your Long Barn Cabin. I appreciated your quick response to our late booking and your availability as needed. Our annual (Teen) grandchildren gathering was a total success, blast for all of us. The location was perfect

for the kids to explore, fish, play basketball, hike, and just hang out on the deck or upstairs where there was enough room for their late night chats. The cabin was clean, and had everything we needed. We did not BBQ or use the fire pit or fireplace due to the drought and fire awareness, but the oven and stove was just fine to cook for the 8 of us. The cabin is located near great historical gold rush towns, of which we spent one day in Columbia-total fun! The people within the gated community were so friendly and helpful. A very fun place to stay. Our grandkids had such a great time that they were actually greatful to be "unplugged" from Internet service. They actually played and socialized with each other instead of the electronics. The parents too. :). We decided next year, Un-plugging again for a few days is a must. We all agree, this is a five star cabin! Oh, one more thing...we managed just fine with one bathroom. We just co-ordinated shower times and limited how long to be in the bathroom, and didn't have one issue. It can be done. Lol

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was homey, rustic, very clean and quiet.

It's the total cabin experience which is exactly what we were looking for. It was spacious enough to fit our family of 5 very comfortably with beds to spare. The beds were as comfortable as they were clean which was a welcome discovery after a day of exploring the woods around the cabin.

The cabin is located in a beautiful little gated community Surrounded by woods it's absolutely beautiful up there.

I also highly recommend checking out the skating rink just up the road. Our kids had a blast! There is so much to do up there I think next time we need to stay longer and we definitely need to go back in the summer to enjoy the little lake just down the road.

Sometimes VRBO's can be tricky because you don't know who you're dealing with but the cabin owners were easy to get ahold of and made us feel very welcome.

Try this place out, you won't be disappointed.

We will definitely be back! Soon!
