About Jim Cole

I'm a San Francisco native now living on the Peninsula in Belmont. We discovered the wonders of the Sierras in the late 60s and go back regularly.

Jim Cole purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Jim Cole chose Twain Harte

When we decide to find a place in the Sierras, Twain Harte was the perfect location as a quaint, small town with many amenities. There are so many things to do close by and in town. It is also the perfect location from which to venture out into the foothills or the mountains. You can even drive to Yosemite for a days adventure and be back at the cabin for a late dinner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just arrived and you should see the smiles on my family's faces. Looking forward to the stay.

Charming cabin in the woods. Its central location makes it easy to see lots of gold country!

My husband and I rented this cabin for two whole months! We work online and the first thing the owner did was upgrade the internet - it was one of the nicest gestures! That said, this cabin has everything you need to work, relax, play or travel the area knowing you have a comfortable launch pad. I would encourage anyone wanting an uncomplicated and enjoyable renting experience to contact the owner today!

Great location, great price!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin while attending the Twain Harte Film Festival on Labor Day weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect! We had 3 married couples (6 adults) plus one infant. The smaller cabin out back was perfect for the couple with the infant to have some privacy and quiet, and the large living room was a great gathering place for all of us to meet at the beginning and end of each day. We easily found everything we needed and especially loved the animated deer on the wall. We would unwound at the end of the day by watching some of the huge collection of movies available - be kind, please rewind!
The cabin was super close to town and all of the screening locations for the festival. Can't wait to stay again next year!

Great cabin near town

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is a great place to stay to be near everything Twain Harte and Gold Country offers. The cabin may not appear to be too big, but the living room and kitchen offer lots of space for everyone. And the deck and front porch area extend the living space even more.
Working with Jim (the owner) directly was great. Where can you find a rental that actually shows the ACTUAL rental price, without hidden fees everywhere! Plus, he was kind enough to allow us to stay a little after checkout since no one was arriving that same day. Little things like this will make us absolutely come back! And they have housekeeping, so you don't need to spend the last few hours cleaning and cleaning before you leave!

Comfortable and well managed

  • 5 of 5
This cabin exceeded our expectations. The owner provided an abundance of information on surrounding hikes, sights, and points of interest. The cabin was clean and in good repair. The games and recreational equipment were in good shape and we made good use of them. We utilized the rear, separate structure that contained a queen bed and private bath, which we felt was a big plus in comparing this cabin rental opportunity to others. The location was nearby great hiking, biking, fishing, and minutes from Twain-Harte conveniences.

July 2013 Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our 3 night stay at this cabin. There were 5 boys ranging from 3-11 and they had a great time playing ping pong, & hide and seek on the property. The highlight of the trip for the boys was swimming and playing at Twain Harte Lake. This is definitely a family friendly cabin and location.

Down Home comfort

  • 5 of 5
If you ever had the chance to go to a good old-fashioned summer camp, this cabin provide that rustic feel with great old-time amusements on hand. My adult children and I had a very memorable reunion there. We enjoyed the darts, ping-pong, and puzzles and took the golf clubs down to the nearby golf course for 9 holes one morning. Three of the party went hiking one day higher up along Sonora Pass, and the whole group hung out at Pinecrest Lake one beautifully cool afternoon, hiking the perimeter, puttering around in a paddle boat, and kayaking. From the cabin, we went for walks around the nearby neighborhoods and the town of Twaine Hart. You won't find any chain stores there, but if you are hankering for Starbucks, there's a really good non-Starbucks coffee shop in town with similar concoctions next to the miniature gold course. If you need to stock-up shop, Sonora is easy to get to and not far away and has all the usual shops and amusements.

There is nothing sophisticated or high-tech about the cabin or the region, but it's cute and comfortable, and has lots of unique charm. If you always wanted your own family cabin, but didn't inherit one and never found the resources to buy one, you can have the experience vicariously here, without the hassle of maintenance and upkeep. We found plenty to do--social, semi-active things that people of many ages could enjoy together. There is ample space for a group of ten or so to eat together and meet together, but the cabin also has room to subdivide-- the breezeway, the wrap-around deck, the living room, the "bunkhouse" (no bunks). The cabin does not come with air conditioning, but Jim and Melody have placed fans everywhere, and the property has plenty of shade. During our 4-day stay in high summer, only one day was uncomfortably warm.

Jim and Melody are very hospitable. They have thought carefully about what their guests would enjoy and have done all they could to make their guests' stay worry-free. Maid service was included in the very reasonable cabin rental so that we didn't have to worry about leaving everything just-so. The printed information about cabin amenities and how to close up the cabin when leaving are very clear. You are not dealing with property managers, but the owners themselves, and I found them to be accessible and very friendly.

My children all thanked me for renting the cabin and have mentioned more than once since then how much fun they had and that it was "worth it."
