Overview

Mi-Wuk Village Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, loft, 1 1/2 bathrooms with mountain views.

My cozy cabin has a king-size bed in the bedroom and a double (full-size) bed in the loft. There are two fold out mats for children. The main floor includes a seating area with a wood-burning stove (wood provided), a dining area, kitchen, bedroom and bath. The cabin kitchen is fully equipped with a large butcher block counter. Bathroom downstairs has a shower with window for views out the skylight and a clawfoot tub for long, hot soaks. Granny’s old sideboard holds your linens in the loft, accessed by an oak spiral staircase. Bathroom in the loft has separate toilet room and beautiful copper hand sink.

There is phone and WiFi internet access, a CD player for music, but NO television or cable reception. So bring your laptop for DVDs or begin thinking of what you will say in conversation with your companions, or to yourself as you meditate. An antique cupboard holds cards and old-fashioned board games.

The kitchen has essential cooking utensils, toaster, waffle maker, blender, ice crusher, coffeemaker and coffee grinder, microwave, stove, refrigerator, basic bowls and pans. Dishes and flatware: service for six.

Linens Provided: White sheets and towels. (White robes available for purchase.) Sorry, no washer/dryer or dishwasher. Mi-Wuk Wash n’ Dry has large capacity washers and dryers.

Outdoor Features: Small BBQ; sunny south deck with long distance views has redwood table and benches; cool, shady North deck with view to deer trail has café table with chairs. Less than a quarter mile walk down Muheli and you are into the woods with trails through the forest.

Great meditation retreat, romantic getaway, privacy when your group is renting a large place nearby, or nice accommodation for two couples or a small family. Children welcome; No Pets; Non-Smoking.

About Sharon Gray

I am an introvert, an avid reader, a collage fanatic and a fabric artist. This is the first time the A-frame Cabin on Muheli has been offered as a vacation rental. In the late nineties, I began a major remodeling project, seeking to save the essence of the cabin feel (in particular the white-washed knotty pine interior) and to assure the longevity of the structure (including jacking up the cabin to install a new foundation underneath and installing insulation on the outside of the white-washed knotty pine.) For the past three years, I have lived in the woods full-time, using the cabin as my fabric arts studio. I have now moved to Sonora so am close by to assist you if I am needed. I hope you enjoy the cabin as much as I do.

Sharon Gray purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Sharon Gray chose Mi-Wuk Village

The Gold Country was always a favorite get-a-way, a quick commute from the Bay Area with little snow hassle on Highway 108 on a Sunday night after a weekend in the mountains. For many years my family spent most weekends at the cabin and every Thanksgiving. We invited friends and family for cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, attended the Columbia and Sonora parades, local live theater performances and other local events like ranger talks, the loggers jamboree, the apple ranch for their pie or a train ride. Our children all took cabin baths together in the claw foot tub. Later, when I moved to Santa Cruz, I used the cabin as a retreat during the summer months when school was out, often staying several weeks.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits high above Muheli Road so the views from the south deck are wonderful. The A-frame structure is classic seventies, and I like the feeling of privacy while enjoying the sun coming in the south windows. I can stretch out on the couch and watch the clouds float by or camp out on the deck at night to watch the stars. The village is within walking distance for something needed at the store or a hamburger for lunch, but you will probably want to travel by car to explore the scenic Highway 108 corridor.

cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The perfect cozy mountain cabin for one family or two couples. Beautiful view, wood stove, master bedroom + sleeping loft, and as neat and well appointed as you could hope. Best of all, it's just down the road from the national forest road where you can walk in nature as far as you can go! Low key and just lovely.

Perfect single family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights over Christmas. At first I was apprehensive about not having a television on the premises. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Our kids are usually enthralled in their electronic devices, but with no tv and limited Internet speed they had no choice but to enjoy the outdoors and each other as it was meant to be.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a rainy weekend at the cabin just after Thanksgiving. The A-frame has a cozy and welcoming feel, but plenty of room for 4 adults. The wall of glass doors looking out onto the big deck and the view over the valley contributes to the feeling of spaciousness. Everything was provided, including some Christmas lights and a set of cheerful Christmas dishes for our meals. Lots of books, music, trail maps, fluffy towels and even terry robes, all made us feel very cherished. As mentioned in other reviews, very convenient to Safeway in Sonora and grocery in Twain Hart. We attended the Christmas parade in Sonora on Friday evening, which was a treat. We could easily have stayed a whole week and we plan to return sometime to catch better weather. Thank you, Sharon, for such a delightful Sierra weekend!

The cabin was adorable. Decorated so lovely. The King size bed was extremely comfortable.

It was a very peaceful setting and quiet. Birds came on the porch in the morning to drink and play in the bird bath! Many lovely trees surround the cabin. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a meal! And the living room is comfortable with a couch and chairs.
