WE'RE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. SEE YOU IN THE SPRING!
Tyler’s Cabin is a remote and secluded 2-story mountain cabin situated on 5 acres of pristine wilderness, at the end of a private road. 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 and your dog can be off leash! 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. Forest Service 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 nature in all its splendor.
The cabin sleeps 6 adults comfortably. Upstairs you’ll find 2 semi-private sleeping areas divided by a staircase (each side has a Sealy queen-sized bed), a ½ bath (toilet, sink and vanity). Downstairs you’ll find one queen sized sofa bed in the living room (next to fireplace), and one queen sized sofa bed in the private back bedroom which has recently been upgraded to a bedroom/entertainment room combo complete with flat screen T.V. and extensive video library. A LOPI woodstove in the living room has forced electric heat which keeps the cabin toasty during those crisp mountain nights. There is a full bath (toilet/commode/shower) downstairs across from the washer and dryer. Overstuffed chairs flank the fireplace, and are a perfect spot to curl up with a good book. 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.
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 espresso machine! All of our supplies and toiletries are offered to our guests on a use-and-enjoy basis.
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 a full “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 iPod docking station in the living room to enjoy your favorite music.
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.
In Bear Valley your kids can attend Bear Valley summer camp (http://www.bearvalley.com/summer-camps-2013)! 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), grab a strong cup of coffee and fresh baked goods at the BV Cafe, 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, canoe (w/life jackets), fanny packs, back packs, and ice chests.
The cabin is 22 miles east of Arnold, and a little further away you'll find historic Murphys and Angels Camp. There's a little something for everyone in each of those areas: antiquing, exploring caves, zip-lining across a canyon, wine tasting at numerous wineries, enjoying an outdoor concert at Ironstone Vineyards (http://www.ironstonevineyards.com), or even horseback riding.
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.
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.
Seasonal activities amidst breath-taking, unspoiled wilderness.
Peace, quiet, and solitude. Oh...and a place for your pup to run around off-leash.
