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.

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 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.

As the vast majority of our guests bring their linens/towels or launder ours, we provide the option for opting out of the laundry service. In such cases, the cleaning fee will be $100. This will cover basic cleaning of the cabin and is done as a cost saving measure for the guests. Sugar Pine Cabin has adequate linens and towels for your use should you wish to use them. The "laundry service" option includes preparing the ten beds prior to your arrival, and the laundering of linens and towels for up to 14 guests following departure. The additional cost is the actual expense, $150.

By default, the VRBO system will include the laundry service within the quote you are provided. If you do not desire the laundry service, please include a short message in any inquiry or your request to book and we will send you an amended quote. There are rare occasions (generally for last minute bookings and around holidays) the laundry service may not be available.

Please read:

When making a booking request or inquiry please include the following information: an acknowledgement of the linen service or a request to omit the service and handle your own laundry, the number of guests in your group as well as the age range, the purpose of trip, e.g. family reunion, business meeting, birthday celebration, ski trip, etc., and your city of residence. Requests to book without correspondence will be declined.

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 Twain Harte

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.

Property as described!

Comfortable property - beautiful neighborhood - close walk to Sugar Shack for breakfast. The property is stocked with necessary items. All remote controls are labeled. Lots of notes around the house to answer the question you are just about to ask. Clearly, the owners have put alot of time and effort into making this property comfortable and easy for their guests to enjoy the stay. Highly recommend.

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 :)

Violations of over-occupancy will result in immediate eviction without refund.

As stated in the description, linens and towels are separated from the cleaning fee and the laundry service is an additional $150. As a cost saving measure, guests may decline the service and bring their own bedding, towels etc. Sugar Pine Cabin also has adequate linens and towels available for use if the laundry service is declined, but they must be laundered and put away prior to the guest's departure. Laundry service includes preparation of ten beds prior to guest arrival and laundering of linens and towels for up to fourteen guests upon vacancy.

By default VRBO will add all options to quotes they provide travelers making an inquiry. Should you desire a quote without the laundry fee included, please ask and I will make the adjustment. Please note that Tuolumne County Occupancy taxes and the VRBO service fee are applied to rent as well as services provided. As such, omitting the laundry fee will in turn reduce the aforementioned tax and fee.

Please include your choice in any booking request.
