Why Gail DeLano chose Gold Country & High Sierra

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

We had a wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Twain Harte for a weekend after a MANY year absence. We loved the cabin. It was easily large enough for 8 of us. The cabin was clean and comfortable and had all of the amenities that we needed. It was a really hot week, and Gail was super responsive about getting us extra fans for the bedrooms to keep us more comfortable. The ceiling fans were very helpful, as well. Gail checked in a few times to see that all was well, but was not intrusive. The cabin location is a close walk to downtown and allowed the kids to walk around on their own.

I have many fond memories of Twain Harte and this was a great weekend for us getting to visit.

Twain Harte escape

  • 4 of 5

We shared a wonderful weekend here with another family so a total of 4 adults and 5 kids. We fit perfectly and the kids enjoyed the flat grounds to roam. The kids were able to make the short walk thru town to get to the park. The weather was wonderful so that helped too! The drive to Leland snow park was easy. Plenty of parking at the cabin and Leland for our extra long car! The owner was very quick to reply with all the right answers! A perfect getaway indeed...

Snow, Snow, Snoooooow

  • 5 of 5

It was a white weekend! We planned to drive to Tawin Harte (from San Jose) to get away and then drive 10-20 min to the snow. Instead when we arrived at the cabin the snow was literally waiting for us. It was extremely exciting and to say the least an adventure. Good or Bad luck, I am leaning towards good, the storm affected power lines that took the power out at the cabin all Saturday. We had heat from them propane heater but no electricity to cook. We still had a fabulous time. Gail was super responsive and went beyond expectations to call around for updates and also to find an open restaurant. We will be make plans to return. The cabin was so comfortable and was great. Memories that I will have for a lifetime. Thanks, Gail.

Owner is quick to respond to emails/ questions, and is very considerate. Bathrooms are clean. The upstairs bathroom has been remodeled which is a plus. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The area is very convenient, there is a 7-eleven not too far away.
