Granny’s old sideboard holds your linens in the loft, accessed by an oak spiral staircase. Bathroom in the loft has separate toilet room and beautiful copper hand sink.
There is phone and WiFi internet access, a CD player for music, but NO television or cable reception. So bring your laptop for DVDs or begin thinking of what you will say in conversation with your companions, or to yourself as you meditate.

I am an introvert, an avid reader, a collage fanatic and a fabric artist. This is the first time the A-frame Cabin on Muheli has been offered as a vacation rental. In the late nineties, I began a major remodeling project, seeking to save the essence of the cabin feel (in particular the white-washed knotty pine interior) and to assure the longevity of the structure (including jacking up the cabin to install a new foundation underneath and installing insulation on the outside of the white-washed knotty pine.) For the past three years, I have lived in the woods full-time, using the cabin as my fabric arts studio. I have now moved to Sonora so am close by to assist you if I am needed. I hope you enjoy the cabin as much as I do.
Sharon Gray purchased this cabin in 1983
The Gold Country was always a favorite get-a-way, a quick commute from the Bay Area with little snow hassle on Highway 108 on a Sunday night after a weekend in the mountains. For many years my family spent most weekends at the cabin and every Thanksgiving. We invited friends and family for cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, attended the Columbia and Sonora parades, local live theater performances and other local events like ranger talks, the loggers jamboree, the apple ranch for their pie or a train ride. Our children all took cabin baths together in the claw foot tub. Later, when I moved to Santa Cruz, I used the cabin as a retreat during the summer months when school was out, often staying several weeks.
The cabin sits high above Muheli Road so the views from the south deck are wonderful. The A-frame structure is classic seventies, and I like the feeling of privacy while enjoying the sun coming in the south windows. I can stretch out on the couch and watch the clouds float by or camp out on the deck at night to watch the stars. The village is within walking distance for something needed at the store or a hamburger for lunch, but you will probably want to travel by car to explore the scenic Highway 108 corridor.
We came for solitude and nature and this was a good base for those.
We loved this peaceful and serene mountain cabin. Beautiful refurbished while keeping it's cabin feel. All the wonderful historical items, photos and books gave us a glimpse of the community's past. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and using the deck reclining chairs to view the night sky. The only draw back for us was the downstairs king bed. The person against the wall had to climb over and wake the other if you have to get out of bed at night. Otherwise we loved this well equipped cabin with warmed tile floors.
The house was small, but open to the deck and views which were beautiful. We enjoyed eating on the deck and watching the sunrise and sunsets. This was a real plus to the experience. The house was clean and for the most part had all that we needed. The kitchen is stocked, but cooking should be simple. There is one private bedroom with other bed in a loft, so open. The plus with the loft is that there is a bathroom so that the person is not walking downstairs in the middle of the night. There is a hiking trail near by which is nice but would use with caution as it is used by ATVs. The house is very near many beautiful hikes in the National park and the lake (more commercial but some nice parts). We went as far as the Sonora pass and hiked the area which was great. Sharon, the host, was great, very responsive to our questions.
Overall experience was great. We have stayed at this cabin several times, and each time has been great.
Wow! Our stay could't have been better. It was exactly what I was looking for. The area is quiet and beautiful without being too far away from family activities. The cabin is very nicely done and has plenty of character. I felt like we were at a friend's place for the weekend. Sharon's attention to detail is fabulous. She really think of everything. Also, we were surprised to find a general store within walking distance. The kids loved looking at the stars and watching deer go by the cabin. We also spent a day at Pinecrest Lake. Oh yeah, and a little trip in the morning to The Sugar Shack is just what the soul doctor ordered.
This cabin is actually pretty spacious, and really well-appointed! Wherever you turn, every piece of interior is finished nicely and with a lot of attention to detail. The location is quiet but only 3 minutes to the highway. Very private feeling, the large deck is great to spend your days and nights on.
Walking and hiking in the Stanislaus National forest is just down the street and the Mi-Wuk Village provides the basics of restaurants, a bar, a grocery store and a laundromat. Just up Highway 108 for winter activities are Long Barn ice skating, skiing and snowboarding at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort and the scenic wonders of the Sierras. Check Tuolumne County Transit for information about the ski bus. In summer, there's hiking, swimming, boating, nighttime campfire events and movies at Pinecrest Lake, golf three miles down the hill at Twain Harte or shopping in antique and specialty stores in any of the several nearby historic towns. Black Oak Casino, operated by the Mi-Wok tribe, provides bowling, restaurants, gambling.
