About Mike Smith

This is my parents home,they are originally from San Francisco, growing up there and meeting at S.F. State. My Mom worked as an elementary school teacher and Dad worked as an electrician. Scout camping trips year round in the Sierras really warmed us to the area. My parents raised us family on the Peninsula, sent us kids to college, and are now enjoying retirement, and being new grandparents. We wanted to share this beautiful home with others so they might have wonderful weekend and vacation experiences that we were able to create for our family. In the winter you can ski at Dodge Ridge, in the Summer you can go to Pinecrest lake and play on the water. Hiking and camping opportunities galore.

Mike Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Mike Smith chose Gold Country & High Sierra

Friends and Family live nearby in Twain Harte, and Pinecrest. It's a shorter drive than going to Tahoe from the Bay Area.

What makes this house unique

Snow in the winter, with it skiing, snowboarding, and being nice and snug by a warm fire. Summer has beautiful hikes and boating on nearby lakes. Fresh mountain pine air. It's lovely.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike,

I got your message and wanted to respond. I'm sorry you haven't heard from me! That must have been a little strange. Life is busy as a parent and I kept forgetting. We really enjoyed renting your cabin! It was really comfortable and we appreciated getting to use someone's nice home. We were all comfortable. We really liked the

comfortable furniture and beds. I know we didn't give you much notice, I'm thankful that someone else canceled and we were able to rent it on such short notice. I hope you think that we took good care of it.

Beautiful house with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend! The house was very cozy and perfect for our snow getaway. We have 2 little girls 3 and 5 and they loved playing outside in the trees and the snow. The house had toys, books and kids movies, which was perfect for our one rained out indoor day! Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and prepare meals. The porch and outside view of the kids play structure was perfect to drink coffee on and watch our kids play and view beautiful sunsets in the evening. We would love to rent again in the summer! We really have a wonderful relaxing time thankyou so much!!!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We went away with friends to get away from kids, jobs, life.....and this was the perfect destination. The house is beautiful and spotless. The location is great and the view is spectacular. We had tons of snow which was perfect and its close to hiking and things we wanted to do but great for staying in as well. We are already looking at dates to return as soon as possible.

Perfect Snowy Get Away!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing snowy get away!! My husband and I went with his mother, and our 3 year old son. We wanted a house where our son could play in the snow without having to pack up and drive too far. This property was perfect!! The storm last week left 4 feet of snow, but our weather was beautiful and sunny. We had lots of snow play and were able to go inside to warm up right away. Very nice! The home is spacious and we were able to be together as a family, and also had our own space to read, knit, watch TV, play and nap. Also, Mike was extremely helpful with answering any questions I had. We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend!! My son was crying when it was time to go home because he did not want to leave the "snow house". And he keeps asking when we can go back. Thank you so much Mike for letting us stay in your beautiful home!!

Perfect vaca spot for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this home. It had everything we needed and it was very spacious. The deck was a perfect place to eat meals or just look at the scenery. Pinecrest being just 15 miles away was awesome. Would definitely recommend!

great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend of 8/12 - 8/14/16 up at Mi-Wuk Village property #499786 and it was absolutely fantastic!

It was so easy to set up through VRBO and owner, Mike Smith, was great to deal with. We stayed at this property

last summer and enjoyed it so much then that we had to go back this summer. We spent a relaxing day on Pinecrest Lake

since it is so close by. The house is large and spacious! We spent the night out on the deck watching the shooting stars

after dinner. We were all able to have a restful night since there was a room for each couple and the young people stayed in

the living room/family room. Highly recommend this property for a fun and relaxing time!

Perfect Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Smith home. They have provided everything you could ever want! The house was immaculate. The kitchen was truly fully stocked with everything a chef could possibly need. They even had a milk frother for coffee in the morning...what a treat! The beds are super comfy with down comforters and feather beds. The house has a fantastic layout. The master suite is on one side and 2 guest rooms and a humongous bathroom are on the opposite side of the house with a giant family room in the middle. We had long lazy breakfasts on the deck overlooking the forest everyday and grilled up feasts on the deck as the sun went down. They had a really good collection of DVDs, games and excellent novels and picture books to peruse.

The cabin is near some extraordinary hiking...Gianelli Trailhead is a must-do for anyone who loves hiking and swimming in pristine alpine lakes. Sonora Pass was another great hike along the PCT. Twain Harte Lake, Pinecrest Lake and Strawberry Lake are all very close. Zoe's Coffee Shop, which has the best crepes outside of Paris, and is a quick drive (less than 3 minutes) from the cabin. They have wi-fi, coffee, crepes and sandwiches. The grocery store in Twain Harte has a great assortment of goods from regular stuff to high-end groceries.

Mike was really great about answering all of our questions quickly and making sure we had a wonderful stay. My family can't wait to return to this oasis in the forest....a spectacular find, for sure!

Thank you Smith Family for a truly WONDERFUL vacation!
