Overview

Twain Harte House Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable, cozy and clean property for your getaway!

This beautiful house is only minutes from downtown Twain Harte, and it's a perfect place to enjoy your family getaway to the Sierras. Enjoy the cozy comfort of a wood burning fireplace during the fall and winter months, while watching the new HDTV in the inviting downstairs living room. Free WiFi is included for your convenience as well.

Our guests are within walking distance (1/2 mile) to Cedar Ridge Community Lake, which features a playground and bbq area . There is no additional fee to access the lake, the water is clear and there is parking and clean restrooms too!

When you arrive, you will walk into a galley style kitchen which opens into the downstairs living room and dining area for 6.

Down the hall is the master bedroom, with a Cal king bed, dresser, blanket chest, and rocking chair.

This floor also has a brightly lit full bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Just behind the bathroom is the laundry room with a washer and dryer and secondary entrance to the home.

Returning to the main living room,there is a sliding door leading to the deck which seats 8-10 guests, and has a gas bbq. During snow season, enjoy the snow flurries and watch the snow cover the trees outside the house! Truly beautiful to watch!

The staircase leading upstairs separates the loft area from the HUGE bedroom. The loft area has a futon, two recliners, a t.v., and an alcove with an incredibly comfortable queen bed.

The upstairs bedroom sleeps 6 guests! Twin, twin bunkbeds, a twin trundle and a queen sleigh bed with a pillow top mattress as well as a table and four chairs are in here. And, it's not crowded!

The large, bright upstairs bathroom features hand scraped hardwood floors, ample counter space, and a shower.

This home has a wonderful balance of warm and cozy mountain charm while providing the comforts our guests deserve.

We are now accepting reservations for the fall and winter seasons. Please send us a note and let us know the size of your group (adults and children). Also include if you wish to bring your family dog.

'THIS IS A NICE HOUSE!' said one recent guest. And that's exactly what you will say too.

Perfect getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with a few friends over the 4th of July and it could not have been better. The house was clean, well equipped and homey. We loved hanging out at the local lake as well as grilling on the patio. There was plenty of room outside for games of beanbag toss and frisbee. The neighbors were lovely and said hello. And the owners Jim and Jill were super responsive, helpful and answered all our questions while we were planning. We would be happy to return!

What wonderful new friends we have made, and what great guests they were as they left our house in terrific condition. They truly were the kind of renters we love to have.

Once again, we would be happy to have them back at any time.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the house was remarkably clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. We were really impressed with the responsiveness and communication of the owners. The house is homey and spacious and we felt comfortable there throughout the whole stay. The deck was wonderful; we spent most of our time out there enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and forest air. Thanks Jim and Jill for making our vacation perfect!

Not too peaceful

  • 3 of 5
Cabin was basically clean I might be too picky. Code to lake was outdated, DVD player didn't work. Beautiful location but two neighbors dogs didn't give us much peace and quiet. Good communication with owners. We are avid coffee drinkers and coffee pot didn't work properly. Due to dogs, we will look for something quieter next time.

Owner's Response: Our goal is that every one of our renters finds the house to be extremely clean and very comfortable, and that all guests are able to enjoy only a positive and wonderful experience.

Since this renter has identified several issues, we will address each item here:

Communication - We appreciate the positive comment about us being easy to communicate with. This is obviously very important, and we certainly strive to be very responsive both before and during each renter's stay. We do ask to be notified immediately if there is ever an issue, just so we can take necessary action to correct it as soon as possible.

Lake Access Code - The renter is right about this item. This particular renter arrived at the house in early March, at least two months before the swim season normally begins. Immediately upon learning that the code on the gate had been changed, our information binder was updated, and we apologize that we were not able to update the binder before this guest arrived.

Coffee Maker - Although the coffee maker appeared to be functioning properly, a new coffee maker has since been provided.

DVD Player - All electronics in the house are tested periodically to make sure they function properly, and we definitely appreciate the feedback when an item does not appear to be working.

Neighbor Dogs - There is a neighbor with two dogs that are kept in a secure location on their back deck or in the neighbor's house. When the dogs are startled or feel threatened with an intrusion onto their property, the dogs will behave like dogs, and do some barking. We have also discussed this issue with the neighbor, and they will take necessary steps to keep the dog barking to a minimum.

House Cleanliness - When it comes to the cleanliness of our house, this is an area where we simply do not compromise. All of our renters will find that the entire house has been completely cleaned before each new family/group arrives. After this renter's stay, there was a small fee assessed due to additional needed cleaning (sanitizing). It's not anything we ever want to have to do, but was necessary for this particular group, and only exercised in extreme cases.

My family (including our two furry ones) and I throughly enjoyed our much needed vacation in this well cared for cozy cabin. It was very, very clean and had everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything you can think of. Sitting on the deck in the morning and evening was a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the view. We enjoyed the private lake which is in walking distance from the cabin. It's to a short and beautiItful drive to Pinecrest Lake and Strawberry. But my favorite part of the whole stay was playing cards and doing puzzles with the family in the evenings. There is plenty of games to choose from. We all looking forward to returning and doing it all over again.

Thanks Jim & Jill for allowing us to bring our whole family into your home. We loved it and can't wait to do it again!!!

Good overall value for a vacation house.

Pros: Affordable, clean, well kept, many beds in the upstairs room. Good for young people. We took day trips to Pinecrest Lake and Yosemite Valley which were very enjoyable. Owners are proactive in communicating and provided personal advice and recommendations.

Cons: A bit of a drive from the main highway. Nearby forest hike is very dusty.

When we saw the home it was just as it looked in the photo and we found it to be clean and fresh. Directions to the home were accurate. We understood the home was a bit of a drive from downtown Twain Harte and it was not a problem, it took about 12-15 minutes. There is a lovely grocery store in Twain Harte that has everything you could need. Some of the activities we enjoyed are: a trip to Pinecrest Lake where we rented a paddle boat, spent a morning at the private lake, played miniature golf, swam at the community pool (it was free) and played at the Twain Harte Golf course. Cute little course and everyone was very friendly. The golf course has a twilight special and a special rate for children. We cooked every night and used the barbeque a couple of times, everything worked great. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. We loved eating on the deck, sitting with our morning coffee and enjoying playing games there too. Next time I would like to do some hiking, the trails looked beautiful. The home owners were lovely to work with and you could tell they care about the home. It was a great trip and we shared some very special memories. A big thank you to the owners.
