About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Nestled amongst the pines and cedars of the Sierras, our mountain home is the perfect place for a vacation any time of the year. Located in Sugar Pine, California, off Sonora Pass (Hwy 108), it is minutes from the historical gold rush communities of Sonora, Jamestown, Columbia, and Twain Harte. Beautiful Pinecrest Lake and the Dodge Ridge Ski Resort are just a short drive away, and Yosemite is close enough for a day-trip.

Our cabin is truly a home away from home. It is a spacious tri-level home, located on a quiet cul de sac, amid two-hundred foot tall pine and cedar trees. Guests have access to Sugar Pine Lake, a private lake that is only a three minute walk from the cabin. There is also a lovely trail that meanders alongside the small creek at the back of the property.

Our goal is to provide discriminating travelers with a clean, comfortable retreat in which to reside while they ski, hike, swim, boat, fish, or simply relax. We have taken great care to create an inviting getaway for our guests. Although we call it our cabin, it is actually a fully furnished and tastefully decorated mountain home. We have chosen natural, warm colors, with a Native American influence. The decor is in harmony with the locale, as it was once home to the Mi Wuk Indians. We are proud of our family-oriented vacation cabin and invite you to vacation at Sugar Pine Cabin.

For additional information look for SugarPineCabin.

This cabin has access to a private lake included. The lake has a swimming beach, dive platform and fishing areas. The lake is a three minute walk from the cabin. The lake is fenced and gated, and access is via card lock.

About Eric Karla

We've been married since 1992 and are previous residents of San Jose and San Juan Bautista. We currently live in Foresthill, CA.

Eric Karla purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Eric Karla chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We've visited the Sonora Pass area since childhood. We frequently rented cabins in the Mi Wuk and Twain Harte area until we bought our own. We hope you will love this place as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is our second home. It is our only real estate investment outside the home we live in and it is not operated by a property management company. As such, we are constantly making improvements and have an interest in keeping the cabin in excellent condition. We hope that you will also find our place to be appealing and care for it as if it is your second home. This is a wonderful place for family reunions, a ski weekend getaway, or a place to spend a week in the summer time. If you are looking for a place to hold a frat party in, this is the wrong cabin. However, if you are looking for a place to return year after year to make memories with friends and family, you will find that Sugar Pine Cabin is one of the best.

It was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed for two nights at Eric's cabin (summer time), and it was AWESOME. Eric was very proactive in communicating all instructions before our arrival, providing detailed documentation on everything. The cabin is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and has a super cozy feeling! The outdoor deck was just perfect for the summer weather - it became the main hangout spot for us (all 13 of us sat comfortably on the deck for dinner).

Having access to the lake by the cabin was AMAZING! It's right by the cabin, and it was perfect for swimming in the summer, or hanging out on the beach/by picnic tables.

All of us had a fantastic time - I was getting compliments from my friends that I picked a good spot :) Highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying here!

Big, beautiful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a team of 14 athletes in town for a tournament & the house was clean, well stocked & very comfortable. The owner was very helpful and answered all my questions making organizing our group stay very easy to arrange before our stay, everyone had a bed to sleep in. Sometimes ive rented through this site and it says sleeps X number but its in cots or pull outs...this home allowed for all of us to sleep comfortably in a bed after a long day of competition. I hope we go to the same tournament next year just so we can stay at this gorgeous home again :)

Awesome Cabin-- Nicely appointed

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Sugar Pine cabin to enjoy some fun time in the snow with my two sons and their families. The cabin was perfect! Plenty of room for the kids to play in the game room while the adults enjoyed some quiet time upstairs. The cabin is well appointed, modern yet a homey feeling. The Owners are so thorough in providing all pertinent information and were very easy and responsive to work with. I would definitely recommend this cabin..
