Property type cabin


Pollock Pines Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Don't miss staying at this warm and inviting luxury cedar cabin in the forest that was remodeled in 2010 - it is also two separate homes in one.

Most cabins in Pollock Pines are on a steep hillside and close to the road - but not this cabin. It is set back on 5 tree-filled acres that are usable, walkable, and has play sets for kids and a year round fresh water stream right on the property - providing a romantic place to sit by the stream, a place for kids to explore, and beautiful sounds of water (most other cabins can only hear the water but this property has the stream running on the property).

Each floor of this cabin is set up as its own separate home but they are connected by interior stairs. This cabin has two master suites (each with its own bathroom), 3 full bathrooms - one with a Jacuzzi tub, two separate and full kitchens, two family rooms, two washers and dryers, a large dining room and a gameroom. There is a lot of privacy for a large group or just spread out and enjoy the space if you are a small group.

You will not be stuck in the cabin all day like in other cabins that have a steep property. Since the cabin is set back from the street, the forested property provides privacy and a feeling like you are camping in the forest but with all of the luxuries of home. Take a walk through the forest on this property and have a picnic at the picnic table by the private stream. See many more pictures and obtain a reservation form by looking at this cabin's private website shown at the end of this description under "links to more information" located after the pricing information.

Even though you are tucked away in the trees, this cabin is in an established neighborhood and is close to all amenities - including the Lake and two private neighborhood swimming pools, tennis courts and a playground (including a swing set, horseshoes, pool table, foosball table and ping pong). The cabin also has its own horse shoes, indoor pool table and ping pong table, games, and swing set - all within full sized warm cedar walls. You don't have to bend down to stand up or walk like in A-framed cabins.

If you really want to feel refreshed from a vacation then you have found the right place. You won't have neighbors watching your every move. You will have room to run and play and simply refresh your senses. This Luxury Cabin was updated in 2010 and has stainless steel appliances, granite tile counters, custom tile in both master bathrooms, Hi-Speed internet, Premium TV channels - all within warm cedar lined walls. Only the best.

There is something magical about this cabin that keeps people coming back. Sit inside by the fire at night, lay on the large balcony under the trees during the day and sit by the private year round stream or go out on a different adventure everyday.

Close to boating, water and snow skiing, wine tasting, historic gold mining towns, Apple Hill, the new Red Hawk Casino, and so much more:

This luxury cabin is located near Jenkinson Lake in Pollock Pines. At the lake you can go boating (bring your own or there are canoes, pedal boats, row boats, and kayaks for rent). Visit the museum, go hiking along one of the many trails, go horseback riding (many equestrian trails), bicycle along one of the many trails, go on a picnic, or go fishing. You may catch trout, small mouth bass, or blue gill. The nearby rivers also offer great opportunities for White Water rafting. And don't forget the neighborhood also offers 2 pools, tennis courts and playgrounds (pool open in the summer from Memorial day to Labor day).

Other activities include panning for gold in the original location where gold was discovered resulting in the 1849 gold rush. Or head to Apple Hill where you can visit one of the many ranches along the Farm Trails offering sweet corn, vine ripe tomatoes, fresh green beans, chestnuts, pumpkins, and colorful bouquets and much more (type of harvest available depends on the season during your stay). Many farms have Bake shops, pony rides, and various other activities. Don’t miss stopping at the Fudge Factory!

Apple Hill also provides tasting rooms with award winning wines. Apple Hill is one of the two appellations within El Dorado County. The other is located south of Pollock pines in scenic Fair Play – all within 3 miles of each other. A map with the Farm trails and wineries will be provided.

If you are looking for a great game of golf you can play at a truly championship golf course offering breathtaking views of nature. Or take a visit to Historic Placerville for Antique shopping or boutique hopping. Many restaurants and shops can be enjoyed. You may want to take a day trip up to South Lake Tahoe. This drive is only about 45 miles and will provide for lots of entertainment and gambling opportunities.

In the winter months you will have plenty of opportunity for skiing at one of the local ski resorts. Sierra-at-Tahoe is only about 30 miles down Hwy 50 from this vacation home. Many others are located between Pollock Pines and South Lake Tahoe. You can also go sledding at Adventure Mountain. It is also about 30 minutes down HWY 50 and is only $15 per car!

About Suzanne Sparacio

My husband and I purchased this cabin years ago and fell in love with it. It is so peaceful and romantic for us - while at the same time providing a great place for our kids to explore on the property's 5 acres in the forest. We have been renting out this cabin to guests for years as a vacation rental so we are experienced and have worked out all of the kinks years ago. We have memories at this cabin to last a lifetime - and I'm sure you will too.

Suzanne Sparacio purchased this cabin in 2005

We literally just stepped in the door from a wonderful weekend in Pollock Pines and the FIRST thing I wanted to do was write a raving review. This is without a doubt the best rental in the area. The cabin was so clean and welcoming and we had more than enough space for all 12 people. The double kitchens were such a nice amenity. Jenkinson Lake was the perfect temperature and we lounged on the water all day! If you are searching rentals, look no now, you will NOT be disappointed. Thanks again Suzy!

Peacful and Beautiful

My wife and I spent two nights at this beautiful cabin in Pollock Pines with our 11 grandchildren and our grown children. Had a great time. We didn't have any snow but it didn't stop us from enjoying our family time together. We have never had all of us together like this before and this was a warm rewarding experience for all of us. Since this was everybody's Christmas present, all kids and grand kids agreed it was the best Christmas present ever. We will do this again for sure maybe in the summer so we can go to Sly Park during the day and return to the cabin at night.

The Perfect Fall Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spend two nights here last week and loved it. My husband, myself and my 2 young kids met my parents and it was spacious enough for all of us, even with out the granny flat. The open floor plan and large dining table are great for relaxing and catching up. Great kitchen that has clearly been renovated. The deck wraps around the front and side of the house and offers tons of great space (as if the 5 acres or wooded proeprty weren't enough!). My daugter loved the swings and walking to the stream with dad. Takes about 10 minutes to drive from HWY 50, but the peace and serenity of the cabin and location are worth it. Not a single neighbor in site. We spent the day in Apple Hill, 15 minutes away, which is so much fun this time of year.

We drove down from Tahoe, but this cabin would be a great getaway for anyone in the Scramento or Bay Area as well. We hope to make it back there someday!

We just loved this cabin! So much room for all of us. The kids loved the swings and all of the games and books. We used upstairs and granny flat and having the two kitchens was great!

Cedar Cabin- Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time. This is the second year we rented this property and this time we also rented the granny unit. It had a pool table and other games and a jacuzzi tub. It also added a third bathroom. Everything is clean, comfortable, and the kitchen is well supplied for cooking.

Our family of eight had a wonderful time staying at your forest home this June! We occupied all the bedrooms and the “Granny Flat” as well. The beds and linens are top-rate and very comfortable, we slept like logs. The kitchen was fantastic and there is enough seating for a group twice our number.The cool summer evening breezes were very refreshing after active days in the sun. The fragrance of the pines and red earth absolutely transport me back to the many days I spent in this area as a youth. We saw many deer browsing in the yard and forest and we kept our eyes out for wild turkeys but they eluded us.Mine may be the first on-line comment, but rest assured that there is a guest book at the home that contains years of positive testimony. Sierra Springs Cabin is a very comfortable home in a beautiful forest location. This home is private yet easily accessible with stores and services are just a short drive away. We want to come back again.The Handy Family of Los Angeles and South Texas
