Why Gail DeLano chose Twain Harte

My grandfather built this cabin in 1940 for his family. After my father died, my mother continued to vacation at Twain Harte with the four kids in my family. Currently, my brother and I own the property, and have improved it throughout the years - new roof, foundations, siding, interior walls, new electrical, new plumbing and tankless water heater, log woodwork, new deck, and a completely remodeled upstairs bath. The cabin is very updated with a vintage feel.

What makes this cabin unique

Large flat property with parking for 10+ cars...many lots in Twain Harte are smaller with little parking. Great place for kids to safely place away from the street. Cabin sits among many tall pine trees but is 1/3 mile from the little town of Twain Harte, and 2/3 mile from Twain Harte Lake

Magical Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the planning stages of the trip, Gail was super communicative and helpful in planning our stay. She describes the cabin perfectly on VRBO. Much emphasize is needed that the lot itself was spectacular. It was huge, with plenty of flat space for our kids to play. The location is also walking distance to the cutest little downtown where there are several restaurants, ice cream shop and even live music on Saturday night (at least night we were there). Though the beds and bedding are comfortable, the vacation rental is definitely a cabin so if you are looking to have a luxurious kitchen and/or hotel like flooring and temperature controlled rooms, you may want to look elsewhere. I know my family and friends will be back because our kids had a fantastic time while at the rental and at our daily trips to the lake. The fee to go to the lake daily is $8 per person and is worth every dime. Just know there is no food/alcohol/coolers allowed. What you do get to experience though is a super family friendly environment with several lifeguards and a perfectly sized lake where one can swim from one end to the other; and there are even water slides, diving boards and a play structure. The deck is simply the very best one I have ever stayed at ever! It is huge and several hours time seemed to slip away as we enjoyed BBQ'ing and nature (several deer sightings during our stay). All in all, this place reminds me of a slower paced state like Idaho, where you are immune to the hustle and bustle of California making it an incredible getaway with minimal driving given it's accessibility from both the Bay Area and Sacramento area.

Cozy and Rustic

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a great cabin right in the heart of Twain Harte. It has all the essentials of any great cabin, including an enormous new deck which makes for perfect quiet mornings to start your day off right. Gail is a very helpful guide and was totally ready whenever we needed her. I'd certainly recommend giving this place a shot, especially if you have a medium sized group of about 6-8.

Quaint and cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute booking for us as our original plans were cancelled and the owner was very helpful in getting our stay booked in less than 24hours. The cabin was very cute and cozy has a great deck, it was rainy and cold that weekend and the cabin stayed very warm! We enjoyed our time in Twain Harte! Was really close to downtown and we did get to see several deer in the early evening which was fun to see! Overall a great place to stay!

Fantastic cabin with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Gail's Twain Harte cabin was great for our group of ten adults. Beds were comfy, fully functional kitchen and laundry, upstairs bathroom has been nicely remodeled. Living space was a little small for a group of our size, but the way the dining room flowed into it made it so there was plenty of seating for everyone. The pellet stove worked extremely well keeping the house heated, even on low the whole time.

Gail was a great communicator, helping us out with some trickiness with the pellet stove swiftly- she even had her handyman drop off an extra table when I mentioned we could use some more dining space! And she was very flexible with check in/out times, happy to work with us when she was able to.

If you're looking for a place with a big group where all the adults need a lot of privacy, this might not be it- the alcoves off the bedrooms don't have doors closing them off from the main bedroom, which you can tell from the pictures and we knew going in, and it worked fine for us. The kitchen doesn't have a ton of counter space, so if you're planning on doing a lot of cooking, be prepared to do your prep efficiently. But there's a ton of parking, which was great, and it's a beautiful area. Highly recommend for a winter getaway!

Owner's Response: Glad you all had a good time, Theodora. Along with the new kitchen floor, I'm looking at small counter/prep space like a roll away island. The extra table is a good fit, thanks for helping me with that. Please return any time!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. We were able to all everything we desired. We had the space to be together in the first level and enough space upstairs for privacy. This cabin was also at a great location close to everything you might need
