Come home to the Roost!

  • 5 of 5

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!

The Roost

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Twain Harte, but it won't be my last! We were so lucky to find The Roost for our rental, it was perfect for our family. It was Father's Day weekend, and also my birthday and it was so nice to find fresh baked cookies and a birthday card waiting for us. Tammy was so nice to deal with, and her attention to detail was evident in her home, as it was beautiful. My grandchildren loved going to the lake, and caught their limit in trout. It was such a fun weekend, and we look forward to returning soon! Thank you Tammy for sharing your lovely home with us.

Owner's Response: Jan, We are so happy you had a wonderful birthday and Father's Day weekend at The Roost. This is exactly why I purchased the cabin so that I could have family parties and functions there. So happy you enjoyed the cabin and we can't wait to have you back again. You should come up during the winter as it is just as beautiful then.

About The 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is beautiful.It was very clean,very comfortable,great for the kids & the adults.It felt very cozy,not over the top so you were stressed over kids sitting on the couch.We had kids from 9-13 & they loved it.We felt comfortable sleeping with the windows open (which I normally don't feel comfortable doing in a cabin),great location-we walked many times into town & getting places was very easy.Not far from Pinecrest.Tammy is so great to talk to & give you any info you need.I actually feel like I have made a new friend.We had another cabin booked & found out a week before that it had been double booked.Tammy saved us with her rental & was very patient with me (I'm still learning how these rental sites work),if we had any problems she was quick to help. I highly recommend renting The Roost,I'm also referring my friends to the cabin.Thanks again Tammy! We give the cabin another 5 Star review.
