About Kevin

born and raised in the East Bay, I've been vacationing in Twain Harte with my family for over 20 years as a renter. Finally made the jump to owner and would like to share my wonderful Twain Harte cabin with you.

Kevin purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Kevin chose Gold Country & High Sierra

When I was looking to buy a cabin in Twain Harte, I only wanted one that was walking distance to the lake. This is very convenient, as you can easily walk back to the cabin for lunch or any other reason. I've spent most of the year getting it ready for vacation renters, now it's ready for you to enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

this home sleeps 18 and is a five minute walk to the lake. Twain Harte is a family friendly place where the grandparents to the newborns to everyone in between have been making treasured family memories for decades. This home can accommodate your extended family and friends comfortably and affordably. Bring the whole gang and start making Twain Harte memories of your own.

Great spot close to the lake. The addition downstairs is really nice and modern.

Parking was no problem since the owner was very clear with instructions. Walked back for lunch one day we didn't have the snack snack. We would love to come back again and again.

Great Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The home is comfortable, especially the beds. Kitchen large enough to cook for a crowd. Upstairs bathroom with door dividing toilet from sink/shower area is very convenient. Short walk to the lake though there is fee no matter how long you stay. Hours drive to Yosemite and Columbia State is a great place to visit (15 min. Drive) with shops, ice cream, gold panning and stagecoach ride

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

A couple issues at the beginning, but Kevin addressed it quickly. We had 7 adults and 3 kids. Sleeping places were fine, but the living room, kitchen, and dining room area was small, so we were pretty much on top of each other. Not a problem in the day when using the deck, but pretty tight in the living room. Not sure how it would have worked with 8 more adults.

Lake proximity is amazing. We could zip back and forth very easily. Well stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware, glasses and cups. Xfinity and Netflix were great when we were winding down at night.

Suggested to Kevin they increase the amount of linens available, and to consider providing bath towels, and increasing the amount of dish towels.

Overall, we had a very nice time.

Twain Harte by the lake...

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well maintained and the owner was extremely responsive to all of our needs. In particular, we loved cooking and eating our big meals out on the wonderful deck. We only ended up having 10 people; parking would be tricky if you had a full contingent of 18.
