Overview

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

Thank you Dearborn's for the use of your large, beautiful home! We had 3 families and had plenty of room to enjoy a long weekend. We enjoyed games, ping pong, basketball and lots of sunshine on the spacious decks! We had dinner at The Rock and did wine tasting both right down the street, too! We also enjoyed the well stocked kitchen! Thanks for the fun getaway! You were always quick to get back to me with any communication matters which was appreciated!

Exceptional value. It is better than advertised with even toys for the kids and lots of games ...

  • 5 of 5

We were all exceptionally pleased with the generous approach of the owners. Use of the washer and dryer(soap provided!!) as well as toys for the kids made this better than expected. Everything was labeled to make it easy for the guests and the kitchen was amazingly well-stocked with everything you could want. The location is truly beautiful and we would book this again in a heartbeat. Control of the temperature in different zones of the house made us all comfortable and when we had internet problems they sent help immediately.

Owner's Response: Dear Ann, First of all thank you so very much for taking such good care of our home. We are so very pleased you were able to enjoy the house. I hope you will be able to come up and stay during the summertime when the weather is SPECTACULAR. The days are warm - perfect to enjoy the lake. The deck is the perfect spot to enjoy the mild evening temp with a glass of wine. You and your family are welcome any time! Warmest regards, Mary & Mike

Turning 80 at Button Willow

  • 5 of 5

Celebrating at the Dearborn's home in the pines was magical for three generations of our family as "Papa" turned 80. Three generations played golf, horseshoes, basketball and ping pong. The weather was warm and clear so the decks, hammocks, and Bbq were used. Saturday night we had additional guests and the house accommodated 22 very easily.

This is a thoughtfully stocked home with silverware, plates and glasses for party size groups. Everyone who attended the party wanted to rent this house in the future.

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Dinojan, Thank you for taking such good care of our home. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.We do hope you will visit again and take the time to enjoy all the amenities Twain Harte and the surrounding area has to offer. During the spring and summer months The Lake is a great way to spend time with family and friends. Swimming, fishing, rafting, water slides and a world class snack shack! Take a morning and play a round at the local 9 hole golf course, or if mini golf is more your speed we have that as well! Tennis, biking, hiking or just relaxing on the deck next to the fire pit all await you the next time you visit. Warmest regards, Mary & Mike

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.
