About The Owner

I have been coming to Twain Harte since I was a child with my parents and brothers, then when I had children every summer I would bring them up to Twain Harte to enjoy swimming, hiking, bingo at the lake, movies in the redwoods, etc. After 40 years I finally was able to purchase a home in Twain Harte. Now every year we have a family reunion at The Roost and we love to celebrate birthdays and holidays here too. Hopefully this cabin will be passed down from generation to generation for years of memories.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Twain Harte

This property has been fully renovated and has top of line furnishing (Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, Restoration Hardware, etc). Perfect for holiday dinners since we have two ovens. The massive deck is great for entertaining and enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or just soaking up the sun on one of our lounge chairs. Kids will not be bored as there is a basketball hoop, darts, numerous board games, bumper pool etc. Adults have everything from numerous televisions, blue ray/DVD player, Wifi, poker table, antique bar, popcorn cart, etc.

We also just awarded Gold Top Vacation Rental 2013 award on FlipKey!

What makes this house unique

Our cabin has membership to two private lakes, Twain Harte Lake and Brentwood Lake. We are conveniently located, within walking distance to downtown, Twain Harte Lake, pee wee golf, local swimming pool, skate park, numerous restaurants, golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, park, grocery store, etc. We are only a five minute drive to Black Oak Casino for gambling, bowling, dining, dancing and restaurants. There are numerous wineries and lakes in the area. Dodge Ridge is close for your skiing needs and Leland High Sierra snowplay is a short drive up the hill. During the winter you are a 5 minutes drive to the ice skating rink. We are approximately an hour and fifteen minutes from Yosemite. There are many local places of interest to visit like Railtown 1897, Columbia State Park, Carson Hill, Sierra Glen Ranch (pick summer fruits or cut down a Christmas Tree), Chicken Ranch Bingo and Casino and more. Many lakes for water skiing, tubing and fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautifully updated cabin with us. We've been coming to Twain Harte for almost 50 years and your outside deck is the nicest we've ever stayed at! We enjoyed a day at Yosemite, Pinecrest Lake, boating at Lake Tulloch and relaxing days at the lake with our big group that comes here every year at this time. Bye Twain Harte until next year!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We brought our extended family to Twain Harte for the first time in July. The Roost was a great place to stay. The location was great and we walked into town for ice cream everyday. We spent the evenings grilling out and sitting on the porch. Most importantly it was SUPER clean. We are all very particular about this and we were not disappointed.

Owner's Response: Ashley,

So glad you and your family enjoyed our cabin. I agree that our location is perfect for evening walks into town. I hear the new ice cream parlor is a hit....ask about the secret menu next year.

It was great talking with you yesterday and I am glad we can now add you to our list of repeat customers. Looking forward to seeing you next summer.

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Twain Harte and surrounding area. The house was just as described and as shown in pictures: clean, well maintained and beautiful! You can tell Tammy takes great pride in her home. The kitchen had everything you could need and more. During our stay I emailed Tammy twice with two quick questions and both times she responded right away (even though she was on vacation herself). Last year we stayed in Twain Harte for a week as well but on the other side of the freeway. I much prefer it here as it is so close to town. Just a 5 minute walk to 'music in the park' and 'movie nights' and felt very comfortable letting my 14yr old son and his friend walk and ride bikes to town and the park area alone. The deck outside is great and to our surprise there was a sink outside on the side deck for cleaning the fish we caught. There is so much to do in the surrounding area. Very peaceful and quiet on the deck at night. So quiet that a HUGE deer hung out for about 30 mins one night within 5ft of the property. We would definitely stay here again and even though I have only stayed at one other place in Twain Harte my guess is that as the description says: The Roost is one of the finest in Twain Harte.

Owner's Response: Karen so glad you, your family and friends enjoyed the cabin. I have stayed in many cabins in town over the last 40 years and I know what the rental agencies and other private homes offer so we have made sure we have what other properties lack to make your stay comfortable.

I to feel comfortable letting my boys ride their bikes, skateboard, or walk into town to go to the lake, tennis court or to get ice cream at the new ice cream parlor.

We hope to add you next year to our other repeat customers that love The Roost! I have added some notes for you and other tenants about the area.

Being a small community it doesn’t take long to locate all of its main recreational activities: Twain Harte Golf Course, Twain Harte Miniature Golf, the local swimming pool, tennis courts, and Eproson Park featuring a skate park and playground, as well as family movies on Friday nights and concerts on Saturday nights. Some of the local restaurants feature live music on Saturday nights as well. On the outskirts of town, off Middle Camp Road, is a great 18-hole Frisbee golf course, a water ditch (great for fishing and walking) the old railroad grade leading to Lyons Reservoir (perfect for a family bike ride), and the South Fork of the Stanislaus River (which is full of great Swimming Holes).

Down the hill from town on Tuolumne Road is the quaint town of Tuolumne where you will find more parks, a great museum, a public pool, a youth center, a walking trail along the historic West Side Railroad Grade and the Black Oak Casino (which offers fine dining, bowling and an arcade for the kids). Heading up the hill the next attraction is Lyons Reservoir, which doesn’t allow swimming, but has great fishing as well as biking and hiking trail options. Pinecrest Lake is a great place to hike and swim as well as watch outdoor movies under the stars. There are plenty of places to swim, fish, hike and picnic at Herring Creek Reservoir, Beardsley Reservoir and along the main fork of the Stanislaus River and at Kennedy Meadows Resort (where horse ride tours are available).

Don't ford to visit the Calaveras Big Trees, Columbia States Park, Yosemite, or one of the many wineries in our mountain paradise.

In fact, with all the hiking trails, swimming holes, mountain biking paths, four-wheeling terrain, boating/kayaking/paddle-boarding lakes, climbing-rocks, fishing spots, etc., you may need to extend your vacation next year.

Annual vacation for over 40+ years.

My family was very happy with your cabin. The pictures and description were right on! Particularly the kitchen was so well equipped we did not need or require any more than what was there.
The deck was more than adequate for our family and additional guests! The access to the deck through the house was so convenient.
Tammy has the house furnished beautifully and was very helpful.
We will definitely rent again.

The Roost is a great Twain Harte rental

Excellent Twain Harte vacation house. Great deck. Interior roomy and well decorated. Kitchen well equipped. Quiet location near town. Very clean. A/C a big plus. The owner, Tammy, is very responsive to questions and handles maintenance issues well. Let's hope that the dam is repaired by next summer!

The Roost was a great place to stay. Walking distance to downtown Twain, very clean and very family friendly. Plan to come back this summer to enjoy or maybe again this winter once Dodge Ridge gets some more snow.

The Roost is not only beautifully decorated and updated but it has all the amenities of home and more! It is such a cozy space and offers all the entertainment you need for a nice day or night in. It is just a hop away from the grocery store and very close to the park and lake. Tammy, the owner, was available and very helpful with any questions I had. We plan to return for years to come. :)
