Pinecrest Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (sleeps 10), 2 full baths, full kitchen, washer/dryer, large deck

This quaint cabin backs up to the National Forest for tons of quiet. With a large deck outside the living room/dining room, you can enjoy nature at its best. There is a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, microwave, large master bedroom. The master bedroom also has a deck looking out into the forest.

This cabin is available winter and summer. For winter pleasure, Dodge Ridge ski resort is only 10 minutes away. For summer, Pinecrest Lake is only 5 minutes away and the campground features an outdoor theater which plays the most current movies at night.

There is a lot to explore in Strawberry, California and its surrounding areas. Plenty of places to hike, swim, fish, boat or kayak, ski, snowboard and toboggan (this you can do right outside the front door).

Give us a call for more information. You will truly love the serenity you feel when you visit our cabin. You'll feel right at home.

Special rates for Homeschool families: Because we know that home school families typically run on one income and because we personally know the value of homeschooling, we have special rates for these special families. You must be a current member of HSLDA and be able to provide a copy of your current membership card. Please call or email for quotes.

Military discount: We want to personally thank all the men and women who have stepped up to serve our country. I can't tell you how much we appreciate all you do. We have special discounts for you also. A copy of your military id is required.

More Info: Winter:

Because of the efficiency of our wood burning stove, there is no need for electric heat (although it is available for use). The wood burning stove creates an atmosphere of warmth and keeps the cabin nice and cozy. Starting it is easy as we keep starter logs and plenty of kindling available.

We do not rent monthly. There is a two week maximum stay. $25/person/night over 10 people.

Sorry, we do not allow dogs. If a dog is brought to the cabin during your stay, you will be asked to leave immediately, lose your security deposit and no refund will be given for any unused portion of your rental.

No last minute reservations accepted. Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance.

Great for a big family ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin, and would definitely return. We thought the one-car limit would be a problem, but parking on the road even with the snow was no problem. The drive to Dodge Ridge is fast - 15 minutes or less. Do take the owner's advice of stopping for groceries in Twain Harte. You don't want to pay the prices any closer. And the restaurant 5 minutes away, Mia's, would be a great choice anywhere--their pizza was really fabulous. The cabin's kitchen is FULLY stocked. We joked about it not having a ladle...until we found the ladle. We couldn't even joke about how fully stocked it was. There were tons of toboggans, as well as some lawn chairs, under the house, at least when we were there. The cabin also had lots of movies for all ages, as well as board games and cards. The Matrix, Clue, and Gin Rummy - how can you go wrong?

Great in the snow!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this cabin! It was a perfect getaway for two families. God blessed us with a fair amount of snow on the ground, and additional snowfall while we were there. It was a real winter wonderland!

The kids loved playing outside in the snow. We built snowboys and girls, and even snow dogs! The hill below the cabin worked well as a toboggan run, but watch out for the trees! There was a deserted school about 1/2 a mile away that provided a somewhat safer place to toboggan.

Inside we really enjoyed the cosy fire place, the games, and the movies. The kitchen was well provisioned, and the bedrooms were nice and cosy.

We made a poor choice in going into the driveway without chains on, but the property manager was kind enough to help us get the car out safely. Parking on the street was not an issue for us.

Cyndee was great to work with and we found her to be very accommodating. Can't wait to go there next time!

Super fun winter get-away

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this vacation house over winter break. There was not a ton of snow, but we found a fun sled run at nearby Pinecrest Lake. The shallow part of the lake was also frozen over, so we got to play out there. And the skating rink at Long Barn is excellent for little kids - they have inverted buckets available as stabilizers, which worked great. My 6 year-old loved the house, there are lots of books, toys, and games, as well as the 250+ movie collection. The kitchen has everything you need, we mostly ate-in.

The only slightly negative part was that the main living area is heated by a wood burning stove, which is charming but slightly smoky (it could be that we did not have the door closed properly?). Each bedroom has its own wall heater, and those worked great.

Cyndee is great to work with, we are looking forward to heading back up for more snow play!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. So glad you had fun. Yes, you definitely need to close the wood burning stove door all the way so that the smoke goes up the pipe. It will escape through any other openings. Also, there is a wall heater in between the two sliding glass doors to help heat the main living area. Again, thank you and I hope we can accommodate you again for your winter/summer get-away!

Grandma's Review!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased and enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Each summer we take our "five" oldest grandchildren to the mountains for a week. The cabin was clean and neat and accomodated our stay with such a large group. Close to Pinecrest recreational area, we spent many hours hiking, swimming and riding horseback. Hop, skip and jump, we were back at the cabin. Nights were so quiet... We would recommend this cabin to anyone who needs larger facilities and wants to be close to the "action".

Beautiful! Perfect and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this cabin, and my dealings with the owner. My entire family was able to stay in comfort and privacy and I will recommend this cabin to anyone. Its cozy, quiet, and beautiful. You immediately walk in and feel like you're home. Will be back very soon!

Cozy 2 Family Ski Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cozy, family-oriented ski house. We were two big families looking to get away to snow ski. The house was about 3 minutes from the Dodge Ridge Ski Resort Exit which was a big plus for us. Logistically, the house was divided by 2 bedroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs, which was ideal for our two families. There were plenty of amenities and the kids returned from skiing and intertubed down the side of the house. We would love to return to this memory-making cabin.
