About Sue Harris

Pete is a retired carpenter, and I am a Real Estate Broker. Together we enjoy owning properties in unique locations and fixing them up to their maximum potential. It gives us pleasure to see others enjoying our properties.

Sue Harris purchased this house in 1978

Why Sue Harris chose Twain Harte

Twain Harte is an adorable small town located in the Sierra foothills. The elevation is perfect, approximately 4000 foot elevation. Our cabin named Katmandu, has the perfect location in Twain Harte as it is a 5 minute walk to downtown with its great restaurants and fun things to do, but yet it is located on a quiet street away from traffic.

We have lake membership, so you can enjoy Twain Harte Lake.

What makes this house unique

*You will love using Twain Harte Lake in the summer, with its large sandy beach, swimming, snack shack, and fishing for the kids.

Pinecrest Lake is just a 30 minute drive up HWY 108.

*Dodge Ridge in the winter is a wonderful place for skiing, snowboarding, and Leland High Sierra Show Play for Tubing and Sledding is just up the road.

Great location, great town and great house, not managed well though

  • 3 of 5

The house / property is great and the town is great. Make sure the owners register your names so you can *actually* use the lake priviledge. The wifi router was locked in some desk whose keys were lost and we didn't have internet for our stay there.

The house was not super clean either.

The hosts are nice and they gave us late check-out.

A true cabin. Very comfortable and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was easy to find. It was very homie, well equipped with all necessities from home. The beds very comfortable. Everything was very clean.

We went skiing at Dodge so easy in and out access to highway.

Grandson and the family had a great time with the pool table and ping pong table.

Two bedrooms were upstairs so we let the younger adults take those rooms.

Our Stay at this cabin was so comfortable and pleasant.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in such a beautiful setting. Close to town, close to the lake, close to shopping. Deer walking through the yard in the early morning as we sat by the fire drinking our coffee. Game room was so entertaining for the us. Beds were very comfortable. Home was very clean and amenities were abundant. Very quiet little area so you could relax and hear nature at it's best. I would recommend this Cozy Cabin to all my friends. Please take care of it, because I know we will be going back there again.
