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.

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Mi-Wuk Village, CA, USA:
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 Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
