About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to our spacious mountain cabin in the pines. You will enjoy nearly 1,600 square feet of well thought out comfort and amenities. Extensive renovations were done. Our home is perfect for creating family memories that will last a lifetime!

Our cabin is located on a fairly LEVEL large lot, so the young ones will have room to roam safely.

EVERYONE APPRECIATES HAVING ONLY A FEW STEPS FROM CAR TO CABIN - A BIG HELP WHEN UNLOADING!

Challenge your family to a rousing foosball tournament. Play card and board games with your fellow guests. Select an absorbing novel from our large assortment.

The little ones will love their own separate play loft with games, books, toys and their own DVD/TV combo for watching your videos.

Our large, well-equipped kitchen has everything needed. We have a pantry stocked with basic cooking necessities so you don't have to take so much with you.The adjacent dining room and bar area can easily seat 9.

You will have all new appliances at your disposal as well as a separate laundry room with a new washer and dryer. We even have a hair dryer in case you forgot yours.

We have CENTRAL HEAT which warms up the cabin in minutes. Or build a fire to keep you toasty!

We offer pillow-top QUEEN beds. There are fluffy down comforters and luxurious linens in our 3 generously sized bedrooms. We provide all sheets, towels, and kitchen towels. There is a set of bunk beds in the upstairs rear bedroom. We have 2 comfortable roll-away beds as well as a sleeper sofa in the living room. There is a Pak-n-Play for the smallest ones. You'll find plenty of storage in the first floor master bedroom as well as a flat-screen TV and private bathroom. Our 2 upstairs bedrooms (one could double as a second master) offer plenty of room to relax.

Our cabin sits high in the pines and has a fully paved driveway with only a gentle incline. The HUGE deck in front is the perfect place for barbecues (gas BBQ), star gazing, sunning, and even outdoor sleeping in the summer months. Our deck has a picnic table, children's picnic table and an assortment of comfortable chairs.

About Bill and Sue

We grew up in the Central Valley of California, but we LOVE the mountains! It was a long-held dream of ours to be able to own a cabin in the pines, and after we retired we were able to make that dream a reality.

Bill and Sue purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Bill and Sue chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We have cherished photos of 5 generations of our family taken in the Pinecrest Lake area. We love it here and have been coming up every year as a family ever since our children were very small.

We had been looking for some time for a cabin to love and we were so fortunate to be able to find this one in 2011. As soon as we drive past the first fragrant stand of pine trees near Twain Harte, we find ourselves in vacation mode.

We especially enjoy all the outdoor activities available - from driving over the stunning SONORA PASS to Bridgeport, HIKING around Pinecrest Lake (something everyone should do at least once), taking an easy day trip to YOSEMITE, FISHING in the nearby lakes, HORSE BACK RIDING at Kennedy Meadows, and of course SWIMMING in Pinecrest Lake or Beardsley Reservoir.

What makes this cabin unique

OUR HUGE FRONT DECK IS ONE THAT EVERYONE WILL ENJOY! It receives just the right amount of sun and shade to sunbathe or read. At night, the stars seen above the trees are a wonder! Although our kitchen has everything a cook may need, there are outstanding restaurants a short drive away. We enjoy the wonderful Italian food at Mia's, the oversized hamburgers and steaks at The Steam Donkey, and driving up to Kennedy Meadows for a mountain air breakfast.

If you enjoy horse-back riding, you'll find it nearby in the Dodge Ridge area and at Kennedy Meadows.

Twain Harte is 20 minutes away and has great restaurants, golfing and boutique shopping.

Sonora is an easy 30 minute drive and has an abundance of grocery stores and eateries. The Sierra Repertory Theater in Sonora offers truly outstanding live productions year round.

In the winter months, skiing and snow boarding at Dodge Ridge is minutes away. There are wonderful sledding hills nearby for the younger ones. In the summer you'll be glad to have a place like our cabin to 'come home' to.

When the sun goes down, you can savor your favorite beverage in front of the fire or on the deck.

Our home is across the street from the Stanislaus National Forest with hiking trails and nature walks. In the evening, don't be surprised to see deer munching near the driveway.

Although our cabin sits tall in the trees, it's possible to drive right next to the deck, leaving you with only a very minimal number of stairs to climb - especially convenient when carrying your gear in.

Charming, comfortable, all we could ask!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very friendly and professional as other reviewers have stated. The interior is spotless and very well decorated. Special nod to the comfortable beds!

Our entire family of 8 never felt cramped and we had an awesome time. There were plenty of books and games for all ages as well as lots of family suitable videos and recodings.

Kids loved the foosball table.

Highly recommend!

Just what you're looking for-a true cabin experience with all the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed here over the holidays and had a wonderful time. There was a LOT of snow (thanks to the owner for plowing the driveway!) and we had a blast.

The owners had decorated the cabin nicely for the holidays and it added to our fun.

Beds were very comfortable, sheets and towels were generously supplied, and the cabin was immaculate! Our kids loved the foosball table along with the games and DVDs that were supplied.

We plan on returning!!

Great location and very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin, it was plenty spacious for our needs. We were a family of 5 and Grandparents, everyone had enough space. There were some fun books, toys and games provided...all the cabin essentials. The deck was wonderful we spent a lot of time out there enjoying the trees and fresh air. The beds were nice and comfortable too. The owner was very responsive to our questions and/or needs, I felt they went above and beyond. We loved the proximity to Pinecrest and Twain Harte.

Wonderful, warm and inviting cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cabin and were thrilled to have found such a gem! As many other reviewers have commented, the place is immaculate and better yet, the owners are so inviting making sure we had everything we needed for our visit. They were so attentive and we were thoroughly impressed.

We all slept soundly in ultra comfy beds and the kids had their own room with bunk beds. We went on our first vacation with another family and their young kids (4 kids aged 5 and under) and there was plenty of space for all. The cabin itself is perfectly situated near Dodge Ridge which our entire family enjoyed experiencing for the first time. The whole area itself is great for young families and this is a great home base for all the adventures to be had. We hope to visit the area in the summer to check out the lake!

BEAUTIFUL CABIN IN A GORGEOUS SETTING!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time at this lovely cabin. We were impressed with how CLEAN the cabin was upon our arrival. Everything had been thought of, and what we didn't have could be easily purchased at the Cold Springs Market just up the hill. The weather was cold when we arrived and it took no time at all to heat the cabin-heater worked great, and we also enjoyed the cozy wood burning stove in the main living area. The beds were some of the most comfortable we have ever slept in-ever-even more comfy than our beds at home! The location is beautiful, and sitting in the living room with my morning cup of coffee watching the snow falling was so peaceful. Wifi access was an added bonus as well. A wonderful little restaurant called Mia's is only 5 minutes away, with yummy brick oven pizza. We had such a relaxing, enjoyable time. We will be back!

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the attention to detail the owners showed. The cabin was spotless ( really important to us as our son has allergies) and beautiful.

The beds were just as comfy as any high end hotel we've stayed at. We very much appreciated having all the sheets and towels provided along with kitchen paper supplies.

The location is ideal for both Dodge Ridge ski area and Pinecrest Lake.

The owners have created a cozy, VERY nicely decorated home to enjoy.

We loved having WIFI and 2 TVs with satellite reception.

We look forward to returning in the summer to take full advantage of their wonderful huge deck.

Highly recommended!!
