About this Cabin & Twain Harte: Please understand this cabin is not just special to (owner), but the many repeat Guests that rent year after year. You see, when I was younger, our family rented the same cabin in Twain Harte for twenty-five years, so each of us thought of this specific rental cabin as “our own cabin” or “our Twain Harte Lake.” The fact is many of our family’s best memories were spent in Twain Harte. What is fantastic is I am frequently told by Guests that for their family, the same thinking holds true; meaning, “they think of this cabin, this community, and the Twain Harte Lake as their own.” Therefore, for me to share my cabin with others and recurrently hear their “stories” of wonderful times is priceless!

Beautiful Mountain Lake Access: This Cabin has active lake membership! NOTE: friendly advice: You do not want to rent a cabin in Twain Harte without TWAIN HARTE LAKE Membership! There are only a few Rental cabins with lake access located as close as this cabin, so do your research before you rent!

The Twain Harte Lake has lifeguards on duty, diving board, slides, docks to swim out to, a beautiful manicured beach for relaxing in the sun, and a famous snack shack with daily planned youth activities.

What people find so relaxing about this lake is its natural surroundings of beautiful forest scenery! 'Once you visit Twain Harte Lake, you will see for yourself why it is known as one of the most unique swimming lakes left in California.'

Casino: First rate casino just six miles from the cabin. This casino has 3 restaurants. It is a must see! Activities for kids are plentiful at this casino: bowling, arcade, etc. Sports bar.

Very well maintained and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented several houses and this by far was the most spacious and well maintained. The house, beds and bathrooms were spotless. There were several spices, pots and pans. The owner even provided brand new pillows. The rooms are spread throughout the entire house which allowed for privacy when someone wanted to slip away for a nap. The kitchen was large enough for several people two prepare a meal at once. There are two refrigerators, yes two! And a large pantry. There is a large dining table that flows from the kitchen to the living room. Every night we all gathered around and played cards and board games. Since the house has an open concept some of us where able to relax in the living room and talk while others cooked in the kitchen and the rest of us played cards at the dining table. The back yard has a spacious patio with a dining area and bbq grill. At night the patio lights up so we spent a few dinners out back. The house is also close to town so a few of us walked to town to grab some ice cream. Lastly, the house has a swamp cooler that really cooled down the house. This is huge since it was in the low 100's during our stay. All in all a great getaway. Did I mention the owner was extremely easy to get a hold of and even sent me an email with local day activities. Awesome!

Roomy and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We were a large group and there was plenty of room for everyone to sit and eat. Kitchen was well stocked as the rest of the home. We enjoyed walks, horse shoes and the deck! The whole family found things to do!

Very cute cabin! Perfect for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the plumbing backed up while we were there. Typical of the older Twain Harte properties. But the owner’s property manager was on it. Plumber was out in less than an hour and cleaning crew was there even before the plumber was able to finish cleaning up his tools. Overall a wonderful stay.

Charming Cabin, Great Area

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed at this charming cabin with a large group of (12) and it was lovely. The cabin itself is charming and quirky; exactly what you want when staying in the woods! There were many levels & decks and our large group utlized them all. The back deck and backyard is surrounded by large trees, and it was a perfect area to sit and enjoy nature/relax. Our little ones especially loved running around & exploring. The house sleeps many, has several bathrooms (important for large groups), and had a really nice open dining area & living room. We really loved the extra large dining table; all of us were able to fit around it and enjoy our meals together. Our weather was perfect when we were there in Aug, only getting a little warm during the day. The swamp cooler on the main floor was very efficent and cooled that level down nicley. The town of Twain Harte is super cute and we were in walking distance of downtown, which had cute shops. We also took a little bit of a longer walk to the lake which was super cute & clean. The house is also located about 20mins from Pinecrest Lake which is totally worth a visit if you are in the area. The house was perfect for our needs and there is very little I would change about it. One of the best parts is how helpful & friendly the Owner & Property Manager are. I actually left my wedding rings behind (yikes) and Rick, the Property Manager, quickly found them & contacted me to ship them back to me. He contacted me BEFORE I even realized that I had lost them - What great people! :)
