About Thomas Moreno

We have owned this property since 1996 and have lived near by since 1977. Now that we have retired and decided not to have permanent tenants, we decided to make out Log Home available as a Vacation rental along with the stock 2.5 acre lake.

Thomas Moreno purchased this lodge in 1996

Why Thomas Moreno chose Penn Valley

The Cabin is located on a Golf Course like manicured 10 acres with a covered deck and lake. We created a 2.5 acre lake 100 feet off the front deck. The cabin is a Cedar Log Home and the entire interior is Cedar Lined (no sheet rock anywhere.) with a great room with an arched beam ceiling. It has the feel of a mountain lodge.

What makes this lodge unique

Our log home is situated 15 minutes from Grass Valley and Nevada City away from the busy traffic of town. The Lake Wildwood Center 1/2 mile away making grocery shopping available. Several restaurants available close by. Penn Valley is at a 1500 foot elevation in the Sierra Foothill, providing easy access to many vacation activities such as Gold Country Touring, fishing, hunting and just relaxing.

Amazing weekend at Tom's Bass Kickin Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Andi have an amazing property in Penn Valley. They are terrific hosts. The cabin has everything you need, full kitchen, large bathroom, air conditioning. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The pond is full of bass, blue gill and catfish. We fished all day and caught a ton of beautiful bass. I highly recommend the property for a relaxing weekend away.

Thank you for the perfect fishing weekend.

Beautiful Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week away in Gold Country. This is an excellent place to stay for access to Grass Valley, Nevada City and Auburn. Enjoyed the Empire Mine Tour. Our host Tom and Andi were great. Cabin is fully stocked and so is the fish pond. Very relaxing place to get away.

Looking forward to our next stay.

We just returned home from renting the bass cabin for the weekend and a great time was had by all .No need to over pack the cabin has everything you will need . We were a party of four ,two adults and two 14yr old boys. The boys had a great time playing football and frisbee on the huge lawn area, but by far had the best time fishing the pond. Over 20 bass were caught and my son even caught a 15 pound cat fish!! The peddle boat was a plus, the boys got alot of use out of it. Thanks, Tom we will be returning visitors !!

We loved this place! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific place! The cabin was just perfect for our little group of fly-fisherman. We actually came down to check-out the lower Yuba River for future trips in the fall....however, we all had a blast fishing for the bass and bluegill in the pond. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! Tom and Andi are such great stewards of this place, and it shows. The cabin, the grounds, and the pond (and its inhabitants) were so well-cared for. Our hosts were also a wealth of information about the surrounding area, in addition to being gracious and welcoming folks. Delilah, their black lab, was just a love. Cabin had everything we needed. Porch great for outdoor sleeping, too, if that's your thing. There's a wheelchair ramp, and bathroom is big enough to accomodate a wheelchair....which would be nice for those who require that. We all felt like our business was sincerely appreciated, and we would be warmly welcomed back. Thanks, Tom and Adi!

Make your next Vacation Get Away, the Sierra Foothills of California. This peaceful two bedroom Log Home on an open 10 acre park like setting with a private 2-1/2 acre lake should be your next destination. At an elevation of 1500 feet the cabin is within 1 hour of all the recreation that the California Sierra Nevada Mountains and Sacramento Valley can provide. Situated near Grass Valley and Nevada City, fishing, hunting, boating, snow skiing and all the Gold Country Tourist Attractions are just a few minutes away.
