Snow has already fallen on Sonora pass! Book your Winter snow play trips now! Last Winter we were booked almost every weekend.

Nice location and Private Lake Access in the Summer and close to skiing and snow play in the Winter.
Welcome to my Mountain Retreat! When I’m not traveling for work or pleasure, this is my home. As such, I hope that you will find it comfortable, tranquil and well equipped.

The space

This 1150 square foot home has two bedrooms and two full baths and is not your typical old run down cabin. This updated home has tons of mountain charm with knotty cedar ceilings and plank floors. It has been cosmetically remodeled with fresh paint, new floors and granite counters in the kitchen. The two bedrooms have brand new queen mattresses and very nice/new “lodge” style furnishings. Check out the pine log bed in the upstairs master bedroom! In the upstairs bedroom and living room we recently added portable air conditioning units for your Summer comfort! Ceiling fans are in both bedrooms and the living room also.
My home is about a 2 minute drive to “downtown” Twain Harte, 15 minute drive to the Black Oak Casino and an easy 30 minute drive to Dodge Ridge Ski area. There are many nearby lakes and streams for fishing or a hike! The home is on a level lot with easy access to Highway 108. We have private lake access in Summer!

In the Living room you will find a “lodge” patterned couch and loveseat as well as a brand new full futon which can be used as an additional sleeping area. The wood stove, 40 inch flat screen TV and DVD/Blue ray player makes this room very comfortable to hang out in! I have a small number of Dvd’s that you can feel free to watch or you can certainly bring your own to view. I have basic Comcast cable programming as well as High Speed cable Internet.
The large kitchen is fully equipped with brand new appliances and tools for most basic cooking needs. It also contains a brand new kitchen table which can seat six. You will also like the mason jar lighting fixtures with Edison style bulbs!
In the Summer months you can enjoy the nice deck out back which includes tall cedars, seating and a BBQ. Also, I have private lake access at Sugar Pine Lake which I can offer to my guests.
Note: The two Queen beds have new mattress covers and bedspreads that are frequently laundered. We provide sheets, blankets and pillows and they will be clean and folded on the end of the bed upon arrival. We also provide each guest a bath towel and wash cloth when you arrive. Please bring your own beach towels in summer. If you are using the futon for additional guest sleeping, please bring sleeping bags and pillows or your own sheets as we do not provide them. Please compare apples to apples when booking your twain harte vacation home as most do not provide sheets or towels.
If you find anything that is out of order or not up to standard, please let me know. I am generally available by email for non-urgent matters and phone or text for urgent situations.
I rely on positive feedback from my guests. After your stay, it would be greatly appreciated that you post positive feedback to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)!

I ask that you treat my home like it is yours and take care of it. I love it here!

You will not be disappointed with your stay at my home. Again, compare Apples to Apples when choosing where to stay in the Twain Harte area. Thank you so much and enjoy your stay in beautiful Twain Harte!

Beautiful, cozy, modern but still a true cabin feel, home away from home.

We enjoyed our stay at Gary's cabin. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for a family long weekend. The cabin is right of the main road, very easy to access. We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. We have to try it again in summer to get to the lake.

Gary was a great host, answered all questions and texts promptly. The listing is exactly as presented in the photos. The neighborhood is a quiet and restful place. We most appreciated the fully stocked cupboards-- we had everything we needed to home cook our meals the whole time we were there; there were even some spices in the cupboards! The place was a little bit dark for my city girl expectations, but I quickly grew used to that. Overall, my family and I really enjoyed our stay in Gary's home.

Gary's communication was great, even before I booked and had question. He was quick to respond and very helpful. This cabin is cute, cozy, quite, clean, comfortable and fun. From the 12 gauge shotgun shells on the couches, to the timber bed in the master bedroom, this is a real mountain cabin. Although the cabin is small, it is well laid out and easy to treat like home. Gary's restuarant suggestions were very helpful and we visited several of them. What we liked most about our stay was the relaxing atmosphere of this cabin and "location, location, location." It is right off hi way 108, even though you don't hear it. It is a great base from which to explore the surround towns and beauty of this area of California. We also appreciated that Gary let us park our motorcycles in the garage. Nice added bonus for motorcyclists.

We enjoyed our stay in Twain Harte. Gary's home had everything we needed for a family long weekend stay. I appreciate the recommendations Gary provided me for places to eat. Location was great right off of the highway, yet very quiet. It was overall a great experience.

Consultant working in various locations in California. Grew up in Lake Tahoe and always loved the Mountains. Love to fish and enjoy the Twain Harte area very much. It's a beautiful place!
I have enjoyed this area for many years! Great outdoor activities in both Summer and Winter. Great restaurants and lots of history!
Loved this home from the moment I saw it. Level lot, easy access, cedar cathedral ceilings and custom home style. Not just your average Twain Harte Cabin! This is my home!
