TWAIN HARTE 4 SEASONS RESORT - LAKE PRIVILEGES

Twain Harte House Rental Photos and Description

3 full bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, 2 lofts, 2 sleeper sofas

This 3800 sq ft. three story home on an acre of land has a wonderful mountain cabin look and feel that has been updated with modern amenities to make your stay convenient and comfortable.

In summer, have a barbecue, sunbathe, enjoy happy hour and dine on the rear deck, or read a book in the front deck all under the tall pines.

We have books to read, games to play, basketball, foosball, ping pong all to entertain you. Or if you prefer relax and take a snooze in the hammock out back.

For swimming, sunning, and socializing you will want to spend time at beautiful Twain Harte Lake. You have LAKE PRIVILEGES! Choose the sandy beach or 'the rock' and swim out to one of the many docks. For the young or young at 'HARTE' go down one of the two water slides. You will enjoy this serene, private oasis. We have beach towels and chairs for the 12 of you.

Twain Harte also has a public golf course and tennis courts. For family fun you will love the not-too-challenging miniature golf course downtown and grab a soft serve ice cream cone afterwards at “The Rock” or if you prefer enjoy one of their 15 beers on tap.

Saturday nights from 6 to 8 PM mid June through early September, walk downtown to Eproson Park for 'Concerts in the Pines', a free outdoor concert featuring a different band every week.

In the winter, Dodge Ridge is 20 miles up the highway where you can spend the days skiing and snowboarding, or go to Leland High Sierra Snowplay in Strawberry, for sledding and tubing.

Come back home and get cozy in the living room by the (gas) fireplace with a glass of wine then walk to one of the nearby restaurants for dinner or stay in and cook your own in one of our two well-equipped kitchens. Eat at the dining table, kitchen nook, or at the bar.

Make a day trip (just over two hours) to visit world-famous Half Dome, one of many splendors in Yosemite National Park. Also visit nearby wineries, bistros, art galleries, and boutiques. Sonora is 15 minutes away and Murphy’s is 45. Enjoy boating, fishing, and jet skiing at Lake Tulloch, a quick 25 minute drive.

After your travels you will look forward to returning to the pine forests of Twain Harte and the quiet comfort of Button Willow.

The master bedroom has a CAL King bed. There are two lofts one with a queen bed, the other with a full bed. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed. There are two sleeper sofas; one in the downstairs living room and one in the TV room. The beds will be made with clean sheets and pillow cases when you arrive. At the end of your stay just leave the beds unmade and the dirty towels on the floor. Our housekeeper will clean the cabin for you. Access to the private Twain Harte Lake is also included for a $5.00 per person charge payable at the lake.

About Mary Dearborn

The home was originally purchased as a retirement home for the Dearborn patriarch and matriarch which they enjoyed to the fullest. Now the time is come to share it with others. We are both originally from San Mateo and now live in San Ramon. We have two adult children both in college. We are looking forward to the time we can retire full time and spend more time traveling.

Mary Dearborn purchased this house in 1988

Why Mary Dearborn chose Twain Harte

This beautiful house is only minutes from so many local attractions, and very comfortably fits the entire family or small group too. The house is kept very clean and very comfortable for our guests to enjoy. We've included books to borrow, games to play, and menus of local establishments. We know you will notice the difference from the moment you walk in the front door. Why this house? It is the best value anywhere in the Twain Harte Area! Send us a note and let us know the how we can serve you better.

What makes this house unique

Comfortably sleeps up to 12. - very clean throughout. Two driveways; upper and lower with private entrances. The house boasts two complete kitchens one upstairs and one downstairs and three full baths. The house is just minutes from downtown Twain Harte. We are one of the few remaining properties that have a Twain Harte Lake membership. Please note we are kid friendly, but not childproof for exploring toddlers.

Large home with plenty of amenties to make you feel right at home

  • 5 of 5
A group of us that hadn't been to Twain Harte in some time decided to get together and make a weekend trip. This house couldn't have been any better. It is a 2 bedroom, 2 loft, 3 bath home with 2 kitchens. The downstairs unit is basically a 1 bedroom apartment and has it's own driveway and entrance if needed. The upstairs was a perfect hangout spot for everyone. The kitchen has everything you need to cook/bbq. Outside there is a basketball hoop, ping pong, horse shoes, etc... The owners also provide beach chairs, rafts and umbrella's for use at the lake. One thing I would say is the chairs are a little older and the umbrella did not appear to be SPF proof, so you may want to bring your own chairs and umbrella if you are picky. With that said, it was still nice that the owners provided all of this as most rentals do not. We plan to return this winter and also make the summer trip an annual trip and plan to stay at this cabin each time.

Owner's Response: Dear Steve,
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our home. We hope you and your family will consider making this a bi-annual vacation spot. Next time take in 9 rounds at the golf course; we have 2 sets of men's clubs and 1 set of women's. I took to heart what you said about the beach chairs and umbrellas. I just now purchased two 100% UV protection umbrellas and six new sand chairs from Amazon. No reason to wait!
We look forward to your next visit.
Warmest regards,
Mary & Mike Dearborn

Fantastic place, highly recommend it

  • 5 of 5
This is one awesome place in the heart of Twain Harte. We stayed here when we visited the yosemite park. Its a 2 hour drive from the park. The house is really spacious and it easily accommodates 12 people. There are lot of recreational activities that we can do inside the place like foosball, basketball, ping-pong, etc. The house was fully equipped with bath and kitchen items. A very nice place in a scenic environment.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I took our kids and grandkids to stay for 2 nights. We had a great time! There was so much room for us. The kids/grandkids and my husband loved the games downstairs. We also enjoyed all the open space and the nice fireplace. All the supplies were there for us to use so, we didn't need anything. We bbq'd both nights (even in the rain) and that worked out good. The owners are so easy to get along with. We had to reschedule and they helped us out with it. I would recommend this house for a vacation stay and hopefully get to stay again real soon. Thanks so much to the Dearborns!!!! The Cline Family

Charming Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful mountain home in a beautiful setting! When we got there, we were very impressed by how spacious, charming, cozy, and immaculate the home was. The pictures really don’t do it justice. Around every corner are delightful little surprises. Just when we thought we were done exploring and had seen everything, there was another room, or interesting little nook, or charming detail. The décor is old-fashioned country style, which I liked, because I grew up in the country and the decorations and furnishings reminded me of a lot of things about home.

The three girls in our party, ages 8-9, loved the downstairs game room and kitchen, and almost immediately claimed that area as “theirs.” They even wanted to eat their dinner down there at the kitchen table, separate from the grown-ups. Well, not a single adult objected to that idea! We cooked upstairs, then brought the girls’ plates downstairs. Everyone was happy.

The second night there we grilled outdoors, because even though it was February, the weather was very mild. The back deck is quite private. All one can see are trees and sky—not a single neighbor. It’s so peaceful!

The house is well equipped with more than you will need. Honestly, the owners are very considerate and detail-oriented and have thought of everything! One thing I really liked was how many cute little lamps there were everywhere in the house. I am a person who enjoys good lighting, especially intimate, focused lighting from area lamps, vs. just glaring overhead light. It makes a space feel so much warmer and cozier. I also liked that there were clocks in every room, all of them correct. Little details like that really make a difference.

The owner, Mary Dearborn is a really, really nice lady, and such a gracious hostess. We had an incident in one room that did require a bit of extra cleaning, and she was so understanding and kind about it, and handled it very professionally.

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Button Willow in Twain Harte, and hope to return soon. We would love to visit in the summer when we can use the lake.

You will not be disappointed with this beautiful mountain home.

Owner's Response: Dear Geiman Family,

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for noticing the little touches that make this a home and not just a rental. Please come back during the summer when the lake is open and the entire family can enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and the great snack shack with world famous snow cones :-) I just purchased a basketball hoop and the horseshoe pit will be installed within the month. We look forward in seeing you again soon.

Warmest regards,
Mary & Mike

Wonderful holiday vacation for us

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Button Willow between Xmas and the New Year and had a great time. With three families and our children growing we were able to fit comfortably. The games downstairs were an added bonus. The living room chairs were extremely comfortable for my friend who just had back surgery and cannot sit in many chairs with ease. The house was well equipped with dishes, towels, sheets for the extra beds, and even shampoo and conditioner for the guests. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Dear Dolores,

Thank you for taking such good care of our home away from home. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities Twain Harte has to offer and hope that you will consider staying at Button Willow during the summer months. Plan on spending a an day at the Lake or play a round of golf at the nine hole course finishing with lunch at one of the many restaurants in town.

We look forward in seeing you again.

With warm regards,

The perfect 4 seasons resort. The summers in the pines are pleasant during the day and nights are generally mild, making Twain Harte a pleasant escape from the long, hot summers of the California Central Valley and the chill of the Bay Area. Summer events start in full swing by Memorial Day. There are endless activities till the fall approaches and Oktoberfest is celebrated. During the winter months, Twain Harte is famous for winter sports and snow. Skiing and snowmobiling are the main attractions during this period. The snow laden pine trees present an excellent scene to thrill the soul. In the spring, when snow starts melting from the mountains and flowers start blooming, it is time for boating, golfing, hiking, camping, fishing, rock climbing, horseback riding, and biking through the forests & along the many rivers and streams.
