An open, welcoming house on a flat lot close to town and all nearby recreation.

  • 5 of 5

The house is warm and open on an easily accessible street in charming Twain Harte. Our hosts were fantastic communicators and have created a family friendly cabin where you can all have a wonderful holiday together. Everything was spotless when we walked in and we felt immediately right at home. The house is well equipped with all the kitchen amenities you'd ever need and games and air hockey for fun family friendly evening competition. We couldn't be happier with our stay at this open concept Twain Harte cabin.

Owner's Response: Linda was just a terrific guest, and her entire group took very good care of the house. This alone is something we definitely appreciate, and the full deposit was returned within 48 hours. Since the score of three stars is the lowest we've received, we asked if there were any issues that we were not aware of (cleaning or otherwise). Thankfully there was nothing specific that needed to be addressed. Had there been an issue, we would have corrected it immediately. It is always our hope that every guest arrives to a beautiful home that is nice and clean and has a wonderful experience when renting from us.

We would definitely consider staying at this property again - great location for Dodge Ridge Skiing and close to shopping and restaurants!

Thanks again to Jim and Jill!

Clean, comfy and well equipped!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Twain Harte. We rented this house for the 2nd time and we were not disappointed. The kitchen is well equipped and we took advantage of the BBQ as well. We were happy the rental had wifi as well as comcast so there were a lot of channels for late night viewing. It would have been wonderful if the bedrooms had TVs as well but our stay was pleasant. We even got a nice dusting of snow our first night there. A nice place for a small family gathering with 3 bedrooms and a dining room that sat six.. All and all we had a fun time and look forward to another visit to the Sierras perhaps in warmer weather this time. :)

very well equipped and comfy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very well equipped with every kitchen necessity and extra that you could ever want. The beds were comfortable. we were a little worried about it being cold but the gas fireplace warmed the place very nicely and was great ambiance. The air hockey table was enjoyed by the children. Close proximity to town was convenient since we forgot an item for breakfast. Also a really nice and scenic drive to Dodge Ridge. when you book, Jim calls you and gives you the scoop, which is a nice personal touch. We want to come back in the summer!

About Jim and Jill

Two educated professionals that have spent many summers vacationing in Twain Harte and throughout the sierras.

Jim and Jill purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim and Jill chose Twain Harte

This house is the perfect size, it has the right mix of amenities, it is in the ideal location, and it is kept exceptionally clean for each of our guests.

What makes this house unique

We love that there is a completely level entry into the main floor of the house. While it cannot be called 'handicap accessible' because it doesn't meet all ADA guidelines, it is accessible enough for those with difficulties negotiating stairs. It is very unusual to find no steps and a level parking area in Twain Harte!
