Property description

This cozy cabin is located is in Twin Bridges/Strawberry (Heights) right off Highway 50 near the historical Strawberry Lodge. It has one bedroom downstairs with a new queen bed and two bedroom loft upstairs. This year-round retreat makes a great weekend or vacation get-a-away. It's located between two National forests and is six miles/10 minutes from Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort, Echo Lake and 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe. This location is a splendid place for outdoor enthusiasts. The cabin is near the Pony Express Trail and Lover's Leap: a hot spot for rock climbers and hikers. In spring and summer, take a boat ride across Echo Lake and more trails await you. Lake Aloha is another day hike possibility. Outdoor adventures abound!

This cabin was built in the 50's and is surrounded by towering redwood trees and has a large deck for relaxing. There is both a floor furnace and a wood fireplace with an insert which quickly heats the cabin. All the beds have down comforters and pillows.

If you want to make a nice meal after a long day of fun, the clean and well-appointed kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary kitchen supplies and more.

The cabin has Direct TV and DVD. Spend time watching a movie, playing a family board game or air hockey.

This hide-away feels remote, yet it is close enough to Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort or a walk to Strawberry Lodge for a meal, ice cream or a game of checkers on their large built-in checker board. Strawberry Market is across the street from the lodge and has new owners and lots of tasty items. It's a great place to grab a coffee and visit with other travelers.

The driveway is plowed during the winter months after a large storm. There is storage in the shed for your outdoor gear and boots.

The winter rate is $125 a night and $120 a night in the summer and a two-night minimum stay. If it's a holiday and/or a three-day weekend, a three night minimum stay is preferred. The holiday rate is $150 a night, for three nights. The cleaning fee is $100.

If there are any questions during your stay, the cleaning crew lives near by.

We hope you enjoy spending time at our mountain cabin as much as we have!
