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.

Great rental at a great location

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 families of 16 people (of all ages). Babies, kids, adult and old couples. We stayed there during the memorial day weekend for three nights.

The cabin is at Twaine Harte which is a nice wooded area with hills, waterfall, lakes all surrounding the cabin. All within 10 min walk. If you are traveling with a family and want to avoid the crowds at Yosemite and Tahoe and really have a vacation, this is where you want to be. The cabin itself was very spacious for the three families. It has a nice backyard that leads you into the woods. There is a large dining table for the entire group. There is WiFi access to watch youtube, netflix etc. There are a couple of big screen TVs with Direct TV. hookup, so you won't miss your ESPN and Fox Sports. If you take a HDMI cable with you to connect your iPhone or Laptop you are all set, you can even watch online programming on TV. There is a room in the basement with a bathroom & living space and TV which is the highlight of the house.

The first day we took a 10 min hike from the cabin through the woods to a nearby waterfalls. Saw several deers on the way, went up the small hill, hung around, took pics. The second day we took a 10 min drive to the Twaine Harte lake & had a lot of fun there with the kids.

If you are willig to drive, within 30-60 mins there are several state parks. Calavares BigTrees State park has several trails for hikers. We took the North Grove trail. We also spent time at Lyons Dam (you can take quick 20 min hike down to the dam) and Lake Pinecrest which is an ideal place for picnicking.

Its hard to nitpick anything about the house. However, we'd suggest having the owner provide the bedsheets, towels etc for an extra fee. Also it'd be nice to leave the cabin without having to cleanup for another extra free.

Overall awesome rental at an awesome location! We will come back again and will refer our friends without any hesitation!

Morgan Hill Ca,

Our great winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks in all honesty we love your cabin just the way it is, everything worked just fine nothing caught my attention that I would say needed to be fixed. It lived up to all our expectations, and the huge loft worked out great when it came to time settle in for the night!

WOW! PERFECT for our Family Get Together, Getaway

  • 5 of 5

After our fourth year of renting your cabin, it sure is nice being able to offer a review. Our group offers our sincere thanks for sharing this beautiful home with us. Everything in the cabin worked like a charm! Did not need the heat and only had a fire the first night. The weather was unbelievable; you would never have been able to tell it was the middle of winter. We normally come up in the winter. Our outings include hiking, snowplay, the slopes, shopping, restaurants, casino and BIG meals. From it's location to the amenities, this cabin has it all. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Summer is right around the are a couple of lakes. The fishermen and kids in the family are already starting to plan a fish and play getaway. We'll definitely be in touch!

What a nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the feel of the cabin. Lots of knotty-pine. It just felt like a cabin.

Cabin was very large so this made for privacy when needed.

Loved the many decks.

We loved are walks to town.

Overall, one of our best Twain Harte Rentals, and we have rented many over the past 20 years.

Our family is large and this was cabin was perfect.
