About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Twain Harte, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
*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.
