About the property

Cabin, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

An authentic 1 room knotty pine cabin in the woods of Twain Harte! Situated on 3 acres, on a private road, it is a marvelous get-away, perfect for 2 people.

This darling cabin is within walking distance to town, and charming Twain Harte neighborhoods.

Enjoy the fresh scent of pine in the air as you sit out on the beautiful sunny deck and relax in the chaise lounges to the songs of the birds and listen for a occasional doe and fawn passing by!

Enjoy barbequing and entertaining out on the flagstone patio. A complete kitchen with new appliances, beautiful granite countertops and all the utensils, pots and pans you will need to make Martha Stewart proud! Clean up is a breeze as well with a new dishwasher.

With vintage skis, sleds, fishing poles and baskets, creels and more, the mountain experience is complete. Not a detail has been missed. Why pay for a hotel when you can enjoy the beautiful luxuries of this special cabin!

Furnished with a spacious King size bed, a full size futon and a mission-style chair you have all you need for you to enjoy reading a book from our library, or listening to your favorite CD or a DVD movie in surround sound. This cabin also has free wireless Wi-fi, for those who need to check back in with the real world occasionally.

Though not very big, it is charming, cozy and clean.

Plenty of level parking. Fresh linens and towels are provided and a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh ground coffee are there for you to enjoy. Treat yourself to this amazing get-away!

We look forward to hearing from you.

About Geneva Crane

We are a family of 5. My husband John and I have two beautiful little girls, 8 and 5 years old and now a darling baby boy!

My husband is a amazing carpenter but really a 'jack of all trades' and has an amazing eye for detail!

He completely remodeled this sweet little cabin and has turned it into a little gem in the woods now! This cabin is immaculate and serene. Outfitted beautifully with charming and comfortable furniture and all that you need to make a scrumptious meal. I have enjoyed decorating it in a mountain cabin theme.

We hope that you enjoy the work, thought and love that has gone into this cabin. Not everyone needs a cabin that sleeps 8-12, some just want a beautiful, clean and equipped place to relax and enjoy life!

Please be our guests and let us know what you think!

Geneva Crane purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Geneva Crane chose Twain Harte

We chose this property for many reasons. We like that it is on a private road so the amount of cars is minimal. It is also a 3 acre property and the neighboring properties are 3-10 acres. We loved the two existing cabins on the property that desperately needed some TLC. John loves to bring life back to properties that have been neglected and he set right to work on tis little cabin!

We have chosen this spot for building our new home, and we want to share the beauty and serenity that we see in this property with others.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is situated on a spacious 3 acres and although it is close to the town, you still have a quieter, more private place than the cabins in town.


The Crane's cabin is close to town and it's restaurants, shops, park, golf course and miniature golf.

Cute and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very cute and cozy, excellent craftsmanship. Geneva was very responsive during our stay and made sure we were as comfortable as possible. Cabin comes with everything you need. We got a lot of snow the weekend we were there but there was a snow plow that goes up the road, so no trouble getting out. Couldn't be happier with our stay! Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Brock for the very kind review! We enjoyed having you as guests, your beautiful pooch too! You definitely hit it right with the snow, so glad that worked out. We always strive to have a cozy, immaculate, and well appointed getaway for couples that don't need a entire house to vacation in. Summers are just as amazing here in Twain Harte, so hoping you will return then! Cheers, Geneva and family

Quality and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway cabin for my daughter and I. It is in a beautiful and friendly village but far enough from the center that deer frequent the ravine by the deck. We enjoyed nearby Pinecrest Lake for horseback riding and hiking and Yosemite for hiking and beauty. Twain Harte has a wonderful grocery market, pharmacy and local restaurants and ice cream if you don't want to venture far. Geneva has met every need of her guests and is receptive to all inquires. You will be amazed at this wonderful cabin and will relax as soon as you arrive.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have to start by saying this cabin is one of the nicest we have stayed in, absolute pride of ownership. It feels a lot bigger than it's actual size, very comfortable, well equipt and in a very tranquil location. We made day trips locally, went fishing, BBQ'd and played cards on the deck (with deer walking by). Geneva is so nice and accommodating I would highly recommend her place for any trip to Twain Harte or it's surroundings . . .there is so much to do up there! We as a family of 4 will be back and are already looking forward to staying here again. Thank you for a great getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Troy and family for the amazingly complimentary review of our cabin! We try to keep it simple, personal and beautiful, and it is so rewarding to hear when we have accomplished that. Your family was amazing in so many ways and we would be thrilled to have you return. All the best, The Crane family

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Mom and I stayed for a few days in this very peaceful cabin. It was a great place to stay to explore the surrounding towns and play a little at the Black Oak Casino. We had a great time! The cabin is very clean and has everything you need for a getaway. We visited from Coarsegold, CA (near the South entrance of Yosemite) so we are used to being in the mountains. We didn't want to stay in a hotel as it is too confining so this was the perfect place to make us feel at home. Thank you Crane family for allowing us to stay at your place! <3

Sooo Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Realized that i had forgotten to say to vrbo what i said to Geneva after we left. That after we got as far back toward SF as "....Manteca, we ran into so much traffic, smog, noise, and cars and people that we wanted to turn around and head back toward Twain Harte and your cabin." It's fantastic, so relaxing and rejuvenating. Spotless, perfect, wonderful weather. Don't know what else to say, perfect for a getaway. Nice restaurant recommendations from Geneva nearby. Nice place altogether.
