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

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.

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.

The cabin was a cozy place to spend a few days around Mi-Wuk. It had all the amenities and was a short distance to the forest station and some local eateries. We are looking forward to coming back when the snow cooperates'

Thank you Sharon! the cabin was perfect! Also, all the small touches, like bath-robes, bath salts, homemade soaps, coffee and essentiels in the kitchen made our stay memorable! the photos reflects what we found...and the owner was very helpful and nice to us. we just missed lounging chairs on the front patio, as the weather was warm and beautiful, however since it was December 1 we understand they were probably put away for the winter weather...

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • Submitted: Oct 19, 2013

This location was perfect for what we were looking for: a retreat away from society for a weekend to relax and enjoy the freedom of not having to worry about deadlines, traffic, city lights and giving the freedom of a bit of solitude. Our GPS through OnStar took us straight to the cabin without any issues or failures. Other than a few dropped connections when looking up locations nearby (like the outstanding pizzeria) everything mapped out very well. The cabin itself was very clean and cozy. Entrance instructions were easy to follow and the checklist for check-in/check-out was very clear and easy to follow. Kindling and paper to get a wood fire going to stay warm during the chill evenings was kept well stocked and easy to locate. The wifi worked fantastic to allow us to still keep up on the world around us.

The driveway was a little harrowing at first, as we are unaccustomed to mountain homes. The instructions on how to back down it once more worked outstanding when followed exactly and made our comings and goings far more comfortable. The staircase to the loft is sharply curved and narrow, making it good that neither of us visiting were portly otherwise we'd never have managed to see what was up there.

The only real concern with the property in general was the walkway lighting to and from the carpark. While present, not every stair was lit and the lighting was not very strong. You have to be wary of where you're placing your feet and it could be easy to trip over in the dark if you're not careful.

Overall, we had an outstanding time and look forward to planning another visit some time in the future! 5/5!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you had a good stay at the cabin. Autumn is a pleasant time because there's little trouble with snow on the roads and yet it's cool enough to sit with a fire in the wood stove. The dogwoods, maples and other deciduous trees are turning bright colors and dropping their leaves. It is the woods though so very dark at night. That means stars are very bright and visible, but also sometimes makes the ascent to the cabin on the granite steps challenging. It was even more so before the steps! I have added more solar powered lights for now, but soon Winter snow will dust everything with white. Flashlights are in order in the mountains, and hiking in a bit is required if there's much snow.

Beautiful, well cared for A frame chalet

My family and I (2 adults, 2 kids) spent a weekend at the Gray's cabin. I've stayed at numerous cabins throughout the years, many of which felt and looked like a rental properties as well. The Gray's cabin is anything but that. It's a well cared, artfully decorated A frame chalet that has been renovated over the years.

Besides a nicely located, wooded Sierra landscape with some seclusion, the cabin sits high above the
road with a good sized deck facing south into the forest.

The basic amenities as listed were included and I didn't even think of breaking out the tv to put on a movie. The beds were firm and comfortable and the downstairs has a nice couch and a few chairs to sit around the wood burning stove.

This is a great cabin, ideal for small family or a couple or two. I'm looking forward to returning to this quiet, mountain retreat someday.

Owner's Response: It is so gratifying when guests capture the essence of the cabin during their stay.
