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 Gold Country & High Sierra

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.

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!

2 days was NOT ENOUGH!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived quite shaken due to a car accident on the way up. Our hosts could not have been more comforting and understanding! I felt relaxation and relief within 20 minutes thanks to them, and the pastoral beauty of their well-maintained property. My boyfriend already had 4 hours of fishing in by noon the next day! Happy Man! The cabin is wonderful, the setting is an oasis, our kids and granddaughter met us there, we barbecued.....everyone loved it, had a great time, and felt right at home. Our only complaint is rah we had to leave!

Great mini-vacation away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great mini-vacation away from home . Although we only stayed for three days, the gracious owner (Tom) made sure that my family would stay warm by providing us with fire wood and extra heaters. He also explained how his wonderful lake was created and told us some nearby towns that we could visit such as Grass Valley and Nevada City. The house had a cozy feeling and my kids loved to snuggle up and watch the collection of VHS movies that Tom provided. Even though we didn't have the time to learn how to fish, we hope that we can come back during a warmer season.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My review is late but I didn’t want to miss the chance to tell others about this place and Tom. We stayed here for 5 days in June. I was a little worried about the payment process at first but it was the perfect location and I got a good first impression from Tom, so I took a chance. We are so glad I did. We loved the place and Tom was wonderful. Waking up to the beautiful pond every day was amazing! The place had everything we needed including wifi and a washer and dryer. Tom was very accommodating and we really enjoyed talking to him. We will definitely book again if we are in the area in the future.

Perfect stay and Tom was more than great.

  • 5 of 5

My family were in town for my Grandfathers service and we were welcomed by Tom who gave us the tour and low down. The place was great and more than I expected. My in-laws who had an RV and were staying at the nearby fairgrounds decided this was a better place and moved in to our oasis. There went my nice quite relaxing time :(. Tom was more than accommodating and hooked them up. My niece and nephew both caught huge fish in the pond and loved the place. I have already told other family if they are coming out to see Grandma and need a place to stay this is the perfect spot. atom is great and the house was perfect. Rent with no worries.
