About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

Spectacular Location, riverfront, in the middle of one of the most beautiful stretches of white water in California - small quiet beaches along river. Very close to Pinecrest and Dodge Ridge. Strawberry with the South Fork of the Stanislaus River running through it and its large meadow is a truly idyllic gem. Overlook is very private with river in front and forest on two sides. It is well appointed and was totally remodeled in 2004. All the creature comforts yet cabin living. With Overlook you get it all: natural beauty, whitewater, privacy, comfort, any season of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are home from our stay at Overlook Cabin and we all had a wonderful time.

This was supposed to be a snow trip for our 5 1;2 and 7 1/2 year old granddaughters, but they so love your cabin, the beautiful surroundings, and the river, that they didn't really mind the absence of snow.

It actually snowed for about 20 minutes on Sunday and the girls were ecstatic

We were very comfortable in the cabin. Central heating is a much-appreciated is so nice to not be cold all the time

Thank you for sharing Overlook. We really appreciate it.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a great stay at this beautiful cabin! Location is gorgeous, at the end of the road, next to the river. The cabin layout was perfect for our family, and so clean. Dennis was really helpful to provide all needed to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We can't wait to come back!

The location is amazing. The cabin is beautiful. The owner was informative and extremely pleasant & responsive. I don't know what more I can say that would top, "We'll definitely be back at some point in the near future."

Owner's Response: We are very flattered by Seppo's remarks. We have been renting Overlook since 2005 and our goal is to keep the cabin looking new, clean and up to date. Strawberry, Pinecrest and Dodge Ridge are little known treasures located closer to the Bay Area than most Sierra Mountain destinations.

Amazing! Wonderful owner, cabin, everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at vacation rentals throughout the year, and I tend to think of them in categories (beach, family, mountains, etc.) This trip was in the fishing/getaway/mountains categories, and was one of the BEST vacations ever!

For starters, the cabin is beautiful. The beds are excellent, the kitchen is well equipped (we don't tend to eat out much on vacation), bathrooms great, and OMG the RIVER is right out the door! When you open any windows or sliding glass doors you can hear it, and you can just walk down to it and from there hike on the river trail or just sit and enjoy it all. It is a few miles from Dodge Ridge and there is a trail to Pinecrest if you want to walk there (or drive in about 5 minutes).

We were there in sort of the off season, I guess (not summer, not snowing) so maybe it isn't always this quiet, but for us that is a BIG DEAL. We loved the quiet. Oh, and it was CLEAN!!!

The owner was totally easy to deal with, providing lots of information in advance and responding to questions we had. Access was easy, there is a "caretaker" nearby if anything goes wrong (nothing did, we just asked about trash pickup), and there is a phone in case you need to contact the outside world. We will DEFINITELY go back!

OK, it isn't for you if you have to be constantly on wifi or need constant Internet access...and the bears will apparently get your trash if you leave it outside...and the TVs (there are 2) have basic stations only, and are not giant screen -- but none of those bothered us. We just had a wonderful time at Overlook Cabin, and hope it is available next time we can get away!!!!

Great Cabin for Families

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time staying at the Overlook cabin. The kitchen is well equiped and the home is fully updated, neat, and clean. The home felt air tight and it has a good central heating system as well as a gas stove downstairs and a wood stove upstairs. The pool table was a huge hit for our kids AND the adults. We got great skiing in at Dodge Ridge which is only a 10 to 15 minute drive. Finally you can see and hear the running river below and our kids had a great time hiking along the shore. It's a beautiful place!

Pinecrest Lake
Beautiful mountain setting. Enjoy the beauty of Pinecrest Lake. There is a trail that runs ...

Ski: Very, very close to Dodge Ridge
