About the Property
3 Bedrooms, Large Loft, 2.5+ Bath Cabin.Satellite Internet!
Situated across from an expansive green meadow (white in the winter), pond (frozen in the winter) and surrounded by evergreen trees, it is easy to imagine how easy it is to relax on our spacious new deck or from inside on our couch for ten in front of a blazing fire (just for fun as we have central gas heat). In the winter, fun is immediately available just by walking out the door. We provide 4 pairs of snowshoes for you to use, and of course, we have sleds available as well.
The large 3-floor A-frame cabin is a 3 bedroom with a loft and 2 & ½ bathroom setup that will easily accommodate two families.
We enter on the lower level through our “mud room” where we keep all of our ski and snowboard equipment. We leave our wet/snowy footwear here and keep the house dry and our feet warm by walking about in our stocking feet.
On this lower floor, there are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a bunk bed combination of a full below and twin on the upper, and a full bathroom with shower.
The second (main) floor encompasses the great room with a fireplace (we provide the wood) and sliding glass doors that bring you to the deck. The kitchen is also located on this level and set up for the serious chef with a brand new 5-burner stove and range, and even an espresso maker. There is a full bathroom on this main level has a shower (with Cosmo Kramer showerhead) and bath, and a full size washer and dryer for your convenience.
The third (upper) floor has a private back bedroom with a queen bed and an extra twin and a similarly equipped loft with a dazzling view of the hi-sierra through our large A-frame windows. There is a half bath between the 2 rooms.
I have supplied the cabin with all the basics you need in the kitchen, like: paper towels, olive oil, vegetable oil, spices, sugar, plastic wrap, zip lock bags, napkins, laundry soap, soft soap, sponges, and auto dish soap. All bathrooms have shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper and bath towels.
Our family of six has made some our best memories at our mountain cabin, sledding, snowshoeing, and walking in the meadow with just the full moon to light our way. It is our “unplugged” time when we fully interact by playing one of the many board games or putting together a puzzle. It is my favorite place in the world to be with my family. Come make your own special family memories!
Please, NO SMOKING!

Calaveras became a State Park in 1931 to preserve the North Grove of giant sequoias. This grove includes the "Discovery Tree", also known as the "Big Stump", the first Sierra redwood noted by Augustus T. Dowd in 1852. This area has been a major tourist attraction ever since, and is considered the longest continuously operated tourist facility in California....MoreCollapse
Mercer Caverns, world famous for the rare Aragonite flos ferri, celebrated its one hundredth year of discovery and operation on September 1, 1985. It is the longest continually operating commercial caverns in the state of California. The owners have guest books signed by paying customers - dating back to September of 1885 to present - indicating that visitors were welcome at Mercer Caverns every year since its discovery. Thousands and thousands (the first of whom descended on ropes) have enjoyed and marveled at this three million year old cave - including royalty and a president. Mercer Caverns has up-dated the stairs, walkways and lighting though always cognizant of its responsibility to present this living limestone cave in its original%...MoreCollapse

Why the Owner Chose Tamarack, CA, USA:
To be quite honest, we purchased this cabin for our personal enjoyment, not as a rental property. But now that we have another child headed off to college, we are willing to share our mountain house. We live in the small town of Sonora California in the foothills. As a family that loves and appreciates the great outdoors, Sky High Ranch offered everything we were looking for in a second family home. Bear Valley is only an hour away from our Sonora home, but the difference in environment is an idyllic and welcome change to our hectic daily lives. The beautiful surroundings are wonderfully conducive to relaxing and reconnecting with family and friends whether cooking together in the kitchen or laughing while playing games with the kids. Our family members love to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, hike, mountain bike, canoe and golf, all activities that are just minutes away. It's always best to arrive in daylight, since the cabin is nestled in the pines. It is also important to know that although the road in front of the house is plowed, the driveway is not, so you will have to carry your belongings approximately 100 feet up the hill.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
*Free Satellite Internet *6 pairs of snowshoes for your enjoyment *Canoe for your use. *Newer Weber propane outdoor grill. *Spacious deck surrounded by evergreens and overlooking the pond. *Well-stocked kitchen. *Board Games galore. *A myriad of outdoor activities right out the door. *We love our cabin, it is not just a 'rental'.
