SECLUDED MOUNTAIN CABIN ON 5 ACRES!

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.

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.

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

Seasonal activities amidst breath-taking, unspoiled wilderness.

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

A TERRIFIC RETURN VISIT TO TYLER'S CABIN

A Terrific Return Visit to Tyler's Cabin
  • 5 of 5
Tyler's Cabin, once again, gave us a reliable and exhilarating week of mountain air, peace, walking and reading in a secluded, delightful, and comfortable cabin. Last year, we went to Tyler's Cabin in July, and this year in mid-June. Days and nights were cooler and we, perhaps in response, were more active--using the information available in the cabin for local hikes and mostly choosing easy to moderate walks that gave us views. Blood Ridge and the hike up the hill behind Silver Tip Campground were lovely. We enjoyed Duck Lake for its huge expanse of meadow, water and birds. The drive over Ebbett's Pass was well worth it, even if hiking at 9000' proved difficult for us. We had lunch at Alpine Lodge which was both good and really friendly--nice! Generally, we prefer to cook at home and, in Tyler's Cabin, that is quite easy and enjoyable; so much is provided for you. For us, that meant herbs and olive oil, charcoal and coffee etc. That is a great Weber! Laura is an excellent communicator, and this year that included letting us know that an unaggressive bear had been spotted. We were scrupulous about food and coolers, leaving nothing in the car, outside etc.and maybe that helped, as we saw nothing. We also made noise as we walked and belled our two dogs; that made me feel better--and was pretty cute besides. In short, Laura and John know how to make a getaway easy--answering questions readily, providing so many basics, offering comfortable beds, plentiful information and instructions, all in an exquisite mountain setting. Thank you both; we'll be back!

AWESOME AND EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED!

  • 5 of 5
Wow... my husband and I had a great time here! The cabin and the location were amazing! The cabin lacked nothing, your hospitality was so appreciated and the trails around Lake Alpine and Duck Lake are some of the prettiest trails that we've ever hiked on! Both of us were awed by the beauty and serenity of the area. Our lab was in heaven and thankfully we discovered that she's a great trail dog:) Thank you for sharing your cabin, we will definitely be back!

ANOTHER AMAZING WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
We had another great stay over Memorial Day weekend. It's such a great escape from the burbs and the kids and dog love exploring the forest. We had nice campfires, made smores, went fishing, and played in the river 5 mins up the road. Can't wait to go again!

BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a good time in the cabin, we did not want to leave! The eight days felt like only four. We were looking for quiet and seclusion, and that is exactly what we found here. Perfect!!

I don’t really know what could have been done to make or stay more enjoyable; everything was top notch!! The owners strive to provide first class accommodations and overall rental experience. When trying to think of anything negative, we are struggling, as there was nothing bad about it.

This is a wonderful cabin on a beautiful piece of property! Plenty of hiking right out the front door! The video library was nice – we used it. Also read several books while there; nice to have the books about local Sierra area. In my opinion, it is a big plus that condiments and baking supplies are supplied if needed. We brought everything, including coffee, but forgot to bring sugar….so we used some that was there. We brought our dog beds with us, but both our girls would use Tyler’s beds at different times as well. It was really nice to rent a place where owners have taken the time to ensure the dogs are comfortable as well! They were so happy to be outside and running free through the woods – lots of puppy prancing!

Laura & John have obviously put the effort into ensuring a enjoyable stay for all, and they have done an outstanding job! Thank you again! We will definitely be back!

If you are looking to relax in the mountains, look no further - this is THE place!!!

A PERFECT HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided on Tyler's Cabin for our honeymoon location. We were looking for something romantic, beautiful, and secluded, and we found it. In short, Tyler's cabin was perfect. The cabin itself had all the necessary amenities, and maintained a peaceful, rustic feel. Situated in the middle of multiple acres of forest, my wife and I spent an afternoon just exploring the property, reveling in the wilderness and marveling in its beauty. We must have wandered for hours, and only once barely caught a glimpse of another cabin through the trees, so that gives you an idea of how perfectly secluded the cabin is. During our stay, we pulled ourselves away from the rustic beauty and comfort of the cabin to visit the local attractions: the quaint town of Arnold (make sure you supply here before you get to the cabin), the quiet (at least during the summer) Bear Valley Resort, the majestic and serene Lake Alpine (you will want to hike up to the summit on the far side of the lake from Highway 4), and the Pacific Crest Trail. It has long been a dream of mine to do the PCT in its entirety, but this was my first opportunity to hike even a section of it. The four miles of the PCT that we hiked in the Ebbett's Pass region were, far and away, the most beautiful four miles of awe-inspiring scenic majesty that I have ever experienced. If you hike north from where the PCT crosses highway, the Kinney Lakes are a great lunch spot. If you looking for a romantic getaway or a secluded and peaceful place to relax and recharge (or both), Tyler's Cabin is absolutely the place to go. My wife and I could not have been happier. Without hyperbole, I literally cannot imagine a more perfect honeymoon than our experience at Tyler's Cabin. And our two dogs loved it too!

LOST IN THE STANISLAUS FOREST

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect stay at the Tyler's cabin this summer. The ojective was to spend a week-end in the middle of the nature and we got it! The cabin is set among magnificent trees on a nice little meadow. We could accomodate our family of 6 comfortably. It is very well equiped and conveniently located close to the Lake Alpine that is a perfect place to relax and also the start for a lot of nice hikes. Also, I have to add that the owner provided us with everything we needed to spend a good time there.
