Year Purchased: 1957
About: My sister and I grew up in Berkeley where our father taught engineering at the University 0f California. We began coming up to Twain Harte in the early fifties during summer vacation from school to escape the fog of the Bay Area. We rented at first but soon fell in love with Twain Harte's laid back lifestyle and in 1957 our parents decided to buy property and build our own place. We spent much of our childhood and adolescence at the cabin, skiing at Dodge Ridge in the winter and enjoying the endless summers swimming at Twain Harte lake, hanging out with friends and enjoying the many activities available in the area. We both eventually moved to Canada, married and had children but returned to Twain Harte each summer with the kids and now they are coming to Twain Harte with their children.
Why Twain Harte, CA, USA:
The cabin has been in the family since 1957 and has been a huge and very influential part of our childhood and continues to be our family oasis now into the fourth-generation.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is located on a very quiet street on a large lot which provides lots of privacy. We love to sit out on the deck in the early morning and watch the local wildlife begin their day. There are wildlife feeders in several places providing us a close-up look at the many varieties of squirrels and birds and it is fairly common to see deer in the meadow just beyond the deck. We have maintained a small library of books about the natural environment of the Sierras and Gold Rush history, which is available to guests.
