About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

If you love a cabin with spectacular views of the Sierra Mountains and lots of sunlight, then our contemporary two-story home, built in 1992, is the place for your next vacation. We are minutes from Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, a family resort with a spectacular ski school and ski team for the children. Three bedrooms: 2 with queens and 1 with CA king, plus loft to place a queen size mattress. Two full baths. We provide Internet, DirectTV, DVD players, wood burning stove/firewood, central heat and property management services. Cathedral ceilings with large windows let the sunshine in throughout the day. Large deck with beautiful views. Like to cook, our large kitchen is fully equipped including quality dinnerware and pots and pans. Enjoy winter meals overlooking the snow covered beautiful pine trees on the property. Less than 5 minutes away there is a Mexican and Italian restaurant and the famous, local landmark restaurant in the area is the Steam Donkey at Pinecrest Lake. A must to visit with great food, a full bar and the charm of an old rustic, country inn.

The summer/fall season offers swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, golfing, sightseeing, biking, antique shopping in Gold Country or just relaxing!

The winter season offers downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking, ice skating at Long Barn Lodge about 10 miles from the cabin and plenty of great hills in the surrounding areas for sledding. For those not interested in snow sports, you are close to the Gold Country for antique shopping in downtown Sonora, Twain Harte, Jamestown, Columbia and Murphy. Spend the day in these lovely old towns and have the amenities of a cozy cabin to come home to after exploring the areas. No Pets Allowed

Great rental for Dodge Ridge area

  • 5 of 5

Finding good accommodation around Dodge Ridge is hard, and I hesitate to write this review as I know this is only going to make it harder.

This is a terrific rental property, one of the very best we've rented. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids between the ages of 7 and 14) slotted in just fine. The place is very quiet, the three bedrooms are perfect, and the open plan living area is very cosy. The kids especially appreciated the huge TV for watching movies after a day on the slopes. Kitchen has everything you might need without being cluttered, and like the rest of the property, was spotlessly clean.

Outside, as the owner makes clear, the steep drive might be tricky in the snow without 4WD. But otherwise it's really a breeze. Property also has plenty of space around it for the kids to play. And there are great food options nearby -- Mia's wood fired pizzas are awesome. If you're renting ski or snowboarding equipment, Heidi's is just up the road and offers a much more relaxing -- and cheaper -- rental experience than renting at Dodge Ridge.

Overall, a perfect family rental. The owner, JoAnn, was a delight to work with, even making a courtesy call to check everything was OK once we'd arrived. Thanks JoAnn!

Owner's Response: Hi Jeremy, thanks so much for the lovely review. So glad you and family had a great time. Please keep us in mind for future rentals. There is lots of snow this winter season (yeah finally) and spring, summer, fall seasons are also beautiful in the Pinecrest area (hiking,swimming,boating, fishing, wine tasting, etc.) Take care and thanks again! Regards, JoAnn

We've been going to visit Pinecrest Lake every summer for many years. This cabin has nice bedrooms and plenty of space for the family. Hoping to come again soon and stay for a longer time.

Great cabin, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family and another just finished our stay at the cabin. Lots of space, comfortable beds, great family room. Only about 10 minutes or so to dodge ridge skiing. We didn't have to deal with lots of snow near the property so not a problem for us. Mia's restaurant is about 5 minutes away when you finally get tired of cooking in. Climbing the steps prepared us for the slopes. Owner was pleasant, informative and responsive. We recommend this place to anyone checking it out.

Nice cabin near Dodge Ridge

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a couple days to ski at Dodge Ridge, which is a short drive away. JoAnn was nice and easy to deal with. The cabin was comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. The driveway is very steep and there is no garage, so if it snows or gets icy you'll need chains to back up down the driveway or park at the bottom. Also, there are about two flights of stairs to get up to the front door so you'll be a little out of breath by the time you get up there. The appliances in the kitchen are rather loud, and the gas oven gave off an odor when used. Overall though, the cabin was nice and we enjoyed our stay and it was a good location for Dodge Ridge.

Owner's Response: Unfortunate traveler did not know how to use our gas range/oven. We immediately had oven checked for any gas leaks/smells upon being informed by traveler on his departure date, and not beforehand, and everything was fine. Turning on gas oven does emit a smell initially but it disappears in timely manner. All appliances are in good working condition. Traveler was informed about risks not having a 4-wheel drive and property description states no garage on property.

Wonderful Winter Wonderland

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family getaway here after a big snowfall. The kids had a fabulous time sledding, both next to the cabin and at the huge "public" hill about 2.5 miles west on 108 (check it out!). We're not skiers, don't know how far it is to good skiing, but we did go to Leland's Snow Play (inner-tubing hill). Kids enjoyed that too, but very crowded!

The cabin is very clean, very nicely furnished, comfy and warm. Fully stocked kitchen with lots of staples in place made it easy for us to make the food we like. (For serious coffee drinkers like us, the very small coffeemaker was a slight frustration.)

Joann is helpful, a great communicator, and easygoing.

I would have been grateful for a little more guidance to local shopping, eating, attractions, etc. I had to figure out on my own that the Twain Harte Market is a nearby, well-stocked grocery store with plenty of gourmet stuff to satisfy any Bay Area foodie.

Excellent experience overall, I recommend it.

Great location, extremely clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at this cabin and it was such a treat--a great location for skiing! The cabin is extremely clean, comfortable beds (yeah!), well stocked kitchen, modern appliances, clean carpet, big TV, and nicely decorated. There is a wood burning stove with plenty of cut wood (under a well protected tarp so its dry!). By far this is one of the nicest and most comfortable cabins we have stayed in and will certainly return!
