Overview

Tamarack Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

It's hard to imagine, but unpopulated places like this DO still exist in the Sierras - where you can go for days without seeing or hearing anyone, your kids can play outside and just be kids, and your dog can romp off leash. If that sounds appealing, then Tyler's Cabin is for you.

SETTING: Tyler’s Cabin is a remote and secluded 2-story modified A-frame situated on 5 acres of pristine mountain wilderness, at the end of a private road. Your own little private piece of paradise - just you and the great outdoors.

The cabin is surrounded by pine trees and a wildflower-filled meadow. Two sides of the forested property back up to U.S.F.S. land, so the cabin's location places you smack in the middle of your own personal sanctuary. The cabin is perfect for a peaceful romantic getaway, a family vacation, a writer and artist's retreat, or just a place to go to get away from it all and enjoy unspoiled nature.

INSIDE: The cabin sleeps 6 people comfortably. Upstairs you’ll find 2 semi-private sleeping areas divided by a staircase (each side has a Sealy Posturepedic queen-sized bed), a ½ bath (toilet, sink and vanity).

Downstairs you’ll find one queen sized sofa bed romantically placed in the living room (across from the woodstove). There is also one queen sized sofa bed in the private back bedroom which was recently upgraded to a bedroom/entertainment room (complete with flat screen T.V. and extensive video library.) Finally, there is a full bath (toilet/commode/shower) downstairs right off the private bedroom. This is a perfect location for the kids, with the parents upstairs in their own private retreat.

The open floor plan downstairs allows for comfort and togetherness. Overstuffed chairs flank the updated wood-burning stove, and are a perfect spot to curl up with a good book, while someone cooks the evening meal nearby.

The cabin is fully stocked with everything from linens to spices. The kitchen comes complete with condiments, herbs, baking supplies, pots, pans, utensils, and all modern appliances – even a rice cooker and waffle maker! All of our supplies and toiletries are offered to our guests as a way to help them feel that this is their home away from home.

The cabin is wired throughout for high speed internet access, so using your laptop or IPad anywhere in the cabin is a breeze. Additionally, there is an “office” area upstairs, which includes guest access to a computer, fax/copy/scanner, and a cordless phone/answer machine. For entertainment you'll find a 40' flat screen TV and DVD player downstairs, as well as an wireless iPod amplifier in the living room to enjoy your favorite music.

OUTSIDE: The front and back decks and the lounge chairs provide privacy, serenity, bird watching, reading, barbecuing, sunbathing or doing absolutely nothing. There’s even a rock fire pit off the back deck for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs under a star-filled summer sky. The meadow areas surrounding the cabin are perfect for throwing a ball for your furry friend.

LOCATION: The cabin is ideally situated 4 hours east of the Bay Area (just off Hwy 4) in one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas of the high Sierras. It is also just 45 miles east of Murphys, 22 miles east of Arnold, 1.5 miles from the town of Bear Valley, and 3.5 miles from Lake Alpine. Even though the cabin is less than a mile off Hwy 4, you feel like you’re hundreds of miles away from civilization.

ACTIVITIES: In Bear Valley your kids can attend Bear Valley summer camp (http://www.bearvalley.com). The whole family can dine seasonally at several different eateries ranging from gourmet to pizza. You can sip a drink at the Grizzly Cafe and Creekside Restaurant located in the historic Bear Valley Lodge, stock up on supplies at the General Store (circa 1850), rent kayaks and mountain bikes, attend the Bear Valley Music Festival (http://www.bearvalleymusicfestival.org) work up a good sweat at the annual “Death Ride” over Ebbett’s Pass, rock climb, hike hundreds of miles of trails (portions of the Pacific Crest Trail, the Emigrant Trail, and the breathtaking Carson/Iceberg Wilderness), go geocaching, climb to the top of one of the numerous peaks and take in the awe-inspiring views of the Dardanelles, Ebbett’s Pass, Inspiration Point, and even Yosemite's Half Dome (on a clear day.)

Just 3.5 miles from the cabin sits granite-surrounded Lake Alpine where Canadian geese roost, and ospreys, golden and bald eagles have been spotted. The lake has a strict 10 mph speed limit for all boats – so it’s quiet and perfect for bird watching, sun bathing, paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing. There are even some sandy beaches for little swimmers. Anglers can fish for rainbow trout, and the lake gets stocked with full-sized fish on a regular basis throughout the summer and fall months. We’ll share our favorite fishing spots with you, and what the fish are gobbling up. You can rent paddle boats, canoes, and small aluminum motor boats. At the end of your day you can enjoy a meal or drink at the Lake Alpine Lodge Restaurant and Bar. To help with your outdoor summer fun, we provide fishing poles, fishing tackle, a (blow up) kayak, Grumman canoe (w/life jackets), fanny packs, back packs, and ice chests.

Venturing out, you'll find historic Murphys, Angels Camp, and Columbia. There's a little something for everyone in each of those towns: antiquing, exploring caves, zip-lining across a canyon, wine tasting at numerous wineries, enjoying an outdoor concert at Ironstone Vineyards (http://www.ironstonevineyards.com), horseback riding, or visiting a historic gold mining town where cars are not allowed (only covered wagons).

Tyler's cabin is the perfect blend: You can be away from it all, or be right in the middle of high mountain action-packed fun. The only thing missing from Tyler's cabin is YOU.

About Laura

Our family loves the mountains, lakes, streams, Tamaracks, wildlife, and the people in this best kept secret of the High Sierras. Here we are smiling, not knowing there was a huge thunderstorm rolling in behind us.

Laura purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Laura chose Tamarack

Seasonal activities amidst breath-taking, unspoiled wilderness.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace, quiet, and solitude. Oh...and a place for your pup to run around off-leash.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very good time. We spent a couple of days going to Lake Alpine (we had our own inflatable boat we used, so didn't make use of yours, but it was nice that you have those available for use), the lake is beautiful and surprisingly warm. The fact that it has the low speed limit really helps to make it a family friendly lake and the kids enjoyed splashing around. We also drove up Ebbetts Pass and enjoyed the scenery. The kids went to a couple of the Junior Ranger activities that they had going on, and we went down to Big Trees Park, ending up at the Snowshoe brewery for a good meal in Arnold before heading back up the hill. Overall it was a very pleasant and relaxing time.



The cabin was what we were looking for a camping type experience but with modern creature comforts. It has the right balance of rustic style with modern amenities. We loved the fact it has an outside fire pit, this was something we were looking for so we could have that camping experience and smores with the kids. We also like the property and the privacy it has, and it is not too far down the dirt road to be annoying to drive.

Tamarack is my mantra!

The first time I saw Tylers' cabin on the site, I knew it was the place for me. I like to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life, and this cabin delivered. I am so thankful for my three days there, my dog had a fabulous time running around and investigating the smells of the forest. The hiking trail begins at the end of the driveway and we walked it every day and never saw another person. We were treated to some rain, so the woodstove was cozy, and the cabin was stocked with delicious teas. I sat and stared out the window at the rain, then back at the crackling fire. The next day when we hiked to the top of the mountain, there was a dusting of snow for us to walk through. I will always remember my time there, the best VRBO experience to date!

We enjoyed our stay so much that we were sad to leave and can't wait to return. The owners are very helpful. We loved the hiking and the tremendous amount of peace and quiet that you never come across in the city. We actually extended our stay by three more nights due to the fantastic weather, cozy atmosphere, and fun outdoor explorations!

We're just back from an annual woman's retreat, this year in beautiful Bear Valley. Tyler's Cabin was the PERFECT place to be & we had to keep pinching ourselves to believe every luxurious detail was so real! We wanted to be in a spot that was very private & it certainly was. We truly felt like we had been invited into a good friend's home - there are super high end appliances, loads of "extras" for your cooking in case you've forgotten anything, bathrooms also exquisitely appointed. The setting is beautiful woods, we heard & watched song birds around us. The front & back decks were perfect for happy hour gathering before dinner. Our dogs were welcomed with their own beds & dishes. It was truly a perfect vacation & we've booked it for next year. It is heaven on earth, this spot!

Total peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
If you want some time out with your family in a great location, away from any sight or sound of traffic, people, or anything really then this is the place for

This really feels like a home and there is everything you could need. Just make sure you bring what you need to cater with you, although there werelots of things like herbs, sauces,etc supplied.

Our two sons loved the fire pit, barbecuing in the evenings and I loved my morning coffee on the front deck. Ebbetts Pass is very beautiful and we had great adventures swimming across Alpine Lake and hiking and river swimming.

You have to like isolation to enjoy this place but if you do you won't beat it. Wonderful

perfect little getaway

We had a great time at Tyler's Cabin. The cabin itself is small but comfortable. We took the included canoe for an awesome day of boating around Alpine Lake. The hiking from the cabin is awesome too. We roasted marshmallows on the fire in the back and really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Setting for a relaxing vacation!

My family of two adults, two children, and two dogs spent 6 wonderful days at Tyler's Cabin. The property is absolutely stunning and the cabin very comfortable. It was the perfect family trip! We loved visiting Alpine Lake, Bear Valley, and Calaveras Big Trees, and coming back to the cabin in the evenings to have dinner and relax on the deck with beautiful views. We hope to return soon!
