About Owner

I have been coming to Twain Harte since I was a child with my parents and brothers, then when I had children every summer I would bring them up to Twain Harte to enjoy swimming, hiking, bingo at the lake, movies in the redwoods, etc. After 40 years I finally was able to purchase a home in Twain Harte. Now every year we have a family reunion at The Roost and we love to celebrate birthdays and holidays here too. Hopefully this cabin will be passed down from generation to generation for years of memories.

Owner purchased this House in 2011

Why Owner chose Twain Harte

This property has been fully renovated and has top of line furnishing (Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, Restoration Hardware, etc). Perfect for holiday dinners since we have two ovens. The massive deck is great for entertaining and enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or just soaking up the sun on one of our lounge chairs. Kids will not be bored as there is a basketball hoop, darts, numerous board games, bumper pool etc. Adults have everything from numerous televisions, blue ray/DVD player, Wifi, poker table, antique bar, popcorn cart, etc.

What makes this House unique

Our cabin has membership to two private lakes. We are not responsible for lake closures. Lakes are typically open from the end of May until the beginning of September. We are conveniently located, within walking distance to downtown, Twain Harte Lake, pee wee golf, local swimming pool, skate park, numerous restaurants, golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, park, grocery store, etc. We are only a five minute drive to Black Oak Casino for gambling, bowling, dining, dancing and restaurants. There are numerous wineries and lakes in the area. Dodge Ridge is close for your skiing needs and Leland High Sierra snowplay is a short drive up the hill. During the winter you are a 5 minutes drive to the ice skating rink. We are approximately an hour and fifteen minutes from Yosemite. There are many local places of interest to visit like Railtown 1897, Columbia State Park, Carson Hill, Sierra Glen Ranch (pick summer fruits or cut down a Christmas Tree), Chicken Ranch Bingo and Casino and more. Many lakes for water skiing, tubing and fishing.

                                                          The owner Tammy was super responsive. She gave us a code to the door and for some reason it did not work. Called her at 10pm and she picked up the phone right away and was so nice and courteous. She let us in with a push of a button on her phone and even helped us turn on the heater with her phone. The house was exactly how she describe it and more. We will definitely be back.

                                                          We are so happy you enjoyed our cabin. Glad the codes worked the rest of your trip. We never had that problem before. Our quests can contract us day or night. You should try coming up in the summer to enjoy the private lake. Your welcome back anytime.

                                                          Come home to the Roost!


                                                          This is honestly one of the best home rentals we have encountered. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you would need, there are plenty of games and movies to get you through a winter weekend, loads of blankets to keep you cozy, near enough to the shops in Twain Harte to walk but never any traffic noise (inside at least), and plenty of space for a family. The owner Tammy was very responsive to a minor issue and had it resolved within an hour. Stop looking and rent this place, it's fantastic. Thanks, Tammy!

                                                          Great property

                                                          Great property, very clean.

                                                          Tammy M.-

                                                          We would definitely recommend The Roost
