About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)
In the summer, you are three miles from the lake and away from the lake campground's noise and campfire smoke. You can walk to the river (about two miles so a good walk); minutes to good fishing, horseback riding, trailheads, bike trails and all Pinecrest Lake has to offer: swimming, boat rentals, even party boats....a real mountain retreat.
The living room area has a 13-foot-high ceiling with skylights, all knotty pine with hardwood floors. The beautiful wood-burning, rock fireplace features LOPI wood stove insert, and a log mantel. The fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and gas stove is open to the living room and dining area, combining as the 'great room' with oriental rugs and leather couches and Directv-television. The deck is off the living room with a charcoal barbecue.
The first-floor bedroom, just down the hall from the full bath, is so sweet with wainscoted knotty pine walls, full closet, queen-size bed, and beautiful, peaceful wooded views. There are two bedrooms upstairs. The first has a queen-size beds, knotty-pine and nothing to see but trees!! We call the third bedroom THE BUNKHOUSE mainly because of its size.
It has two twin-size beds and two queen-size beds. The second dish-television with DVD/VCR player is here - a good hang out space with plenty of closet room as well. Both of these upstairs bedrooms are off the hall from the second bath with shower and tub.
There is no internet access at the cabin so you will need to use data.
We supply blankets and pillows; BRING YOUR OWN: SHEETS, PILLOWCASES, BATH AND KITCHEN TOWELS, TOILETRIES, and CHARCOAL.
Cancellations made prior to 30 days before the reservation date are fully refundable less a $25 cancellation fee. Cancellations before a holiday are fully refundable minus $25 cancellation fee when made prior to 60 days before a holiday.
Guests canceling fewer than 30 days (60 days for holidays) in advance will be responsible for the basic cabin rental fee (no extra person fees, no cleaning fees) if the cabin cannot be rented. If the cabin does rent, there is a $25 cancellation fee only, and it can be used as credit towards your next stay if within one year of your cancellation.
During the snow season, the driveway will be unusable for cars, with parking at the road. The parking pad at the road is plowed. It is a VERY SHORT WALK to the cabin from your car, but even so, you may need to shovel some snow a few times during your visit, and you will definitely need boots to get in: 'the price of a winter wonderland I guess.'
The land is spacious enough that the kids will have a lot of fun in the snow right off the deck.
This is where you come if you want snow and all it has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Strawberry, Tuolumne County, CA, USA:
We have come to this area for over 30 years. Our big love is hiking the Emigrant Wilderness. We live in Berkeley and have always felt so fortunate to be so close to this beautiful High Sierra area. Summers at Pinecrest lake, walking around it (5 miles), watching the kids grow up. Of course, skiing at Dodge is a HUGE attraction for us. It is so children friendly and offers a challenge for advanced skiers and boarders as well; it's hard to go home. Strawberry is right there, and we never dare dream we would find a mountain home that we would love like we do this beautiful cabin. It has been wonderful, over the years, to share our cabin with so many regular guests. Thank you!! Vivian and David Bigelow
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
In the winter, when it snows, you ar able to sled right on the property so the little ones can take a break to come in, has been wonderful. It is so quiet up here, walking to the river, though a good walk, is beautiful. It is a lot of fun having a ping pong table and foosball table. Well-insulated, beat the summer heat.
