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.

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 William J

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.

William J purchased this cabin in 2011

Why William J 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.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a last minute getaway and thoroughly enjoyed this cabin. Comfy beds, awesome decor and the cleanest place we've ever stayed!

Had fun on Pinecrest Lake, watched the outdoor movies, hiked the trails near the cabin, and came home to warm and welcoming place!

We LOVED OUR STAY AT THIS WONDERFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this gem for a week. We couldn't have been more pleased. The cabin was decorated in lodge like theme and everything was SO clean when we arrived.

The owners were THE BEST throughout the whole process.

We hiked Pinecrest Lake, drive to Sonora Pass and Kennedy Meadows. What a gorgeous drive that was.

The owners left lots of info about nearby restaurants and attractions.

We plan to return!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several delightful days at this charming cabin. We had plenty of room for my family and my parents. Our kids loved the foosball table and the upstairs video area. The cabin was clean, clean, clean! We had plenty of towels and the beds were very comfortable.

We spend several days at Pinecrest Lake and took drives up Highway 108 towards Sonora Pass and Kennedy Meadows. The wildflowers were awesome.

We loved our stay and how easy it was to communicate with the owners - they were a pleasure!

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.
