Enjoy this charming mountain cabin, conveniently located just 15 minutes from Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, 20 minutes to Sonora and historic gold country, and an easy day trip to Yosemite National Park.
The cabin has two bedrooms upstairs. One with a queen bed and a larger bedroom with two twin beds and an inflatable queen mattress. Each bedroom has cable TV. Downstairs, there's a full kitchen, bathroom, living room with fireplace, cable TV, board games, and books. The dining area accommodates 6. Relax on the covered porch or build a campfire in the fire ring for smores!
Summer activities: Pinecrest Lake is a terrific place to spend the day swimming, boating, fishing, or hiking. You can rent kayaks, paddle boats, fishing boats, and party boats at the marina. There's a snack bar that serves burgers and soft serve ice cream, a general store, and a sporting goods store conveniently located at the lake.
The Steam Donkey restaurant serves up delicious lunch and dinner and has a full bar. The Serene Bean, an outdoor coffee stand, is open year round.
In the evening, there is an outdoor amphitheater under the pines that features first run movies. This overlooks the lake and has a snack bar that serves popcorn, hot chocolate, and more. It's so much fun.
Paddle Board rentals are available at Heidi's Ski Shop.
Winter Activities: Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is 15 miles up the road. There is a lodge to relax in and a lot of trails to explore. Grab some lunch at the Creekside Cafe or a beer at the Boulder Bar.
Leland Sno Park is about 25 miles from the cabin. It's a great place to take your kids sledding in a great open area. Traffic is directed by employees of the Sno Park, and there is a lodge that serves snacks and warm drinks.
There's a seasonal, indoor ice skating rink that you can walk to right across the street from the cabin!
Further up the road are great fishing spots to explore and Donnell Vista, a stunning overlook 30 scenic miles from the cabin.
Only one hour to the quaint town of Murphy's, wine tasting, restaurants, and shopping. Calaveras Big Trees State Park is further up Hwy 4 where you can view an amazing grove of giant sequoias.
