Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 9-11)

COZY UP TO THE ROCK FIREPLACE WITH A CUP OF COFFEE or AFTER PLAYING IN THE SNOW. Up for the challenge? Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is nearby.

THE EXPANSIVE OUTDOOR LIVING TERRACE IN THE SIERRAS surrounded by forest is PERFECT FOR A BBQ WHILE WATCHING THE SUNSET or you can enjoy the LARGE SECOND FLOOR DECK over looking the forest, A large comfortable living room surrounds a large rock fireplace and a game table sits under the big window. Both are great for an evening with friends and family. The dining room seats 12. It's 2100sq ft of forest views. You will love the gracious feel of the cabin and the peace and quiet.

Think of your own personal lodge. Located downstairs are 4 bedrooms and two full baths. This was great planning on the part of the builder. The bedrooms are naturally cooler and better for sleeping downstairs and because the living room is upstairs you feel like you are in the trees.

But it's the peace and quiet that sets this area of the Sierra Mountains

If you have never been to Pinecrest you need to come.. 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' was filmed near by in Kennedy Meadows. In fact, as a little boy my father gave the starring actress, Ingrid Bergman, a ride around the lake in his boat. She paid him a whole quarter and he was thrilled.

In those days we camped, but some day we wished to have our own Pinecrest Lodge near the lake. Those who have stayed at the cabin tell us their kids and grand kids ask them 'when are we going to our cabin in the trees again?'.

We want you to relax, rest and enjoy the quiet but for those of you who are more adventurous hiking, boating, fishing (they stock the lake w/ fish for you to catch), sailing, horseback riding and sunbathing are near by at Pinecrest Lake during the summer. Twain Hart Golf Course is just 15 minutes down the hill and in the winter Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is just 15 minutes up the hill.

Leland Meadows sledding, cross country skiing, ice skating and snowmobiling are close by. You can also just enjoy watching it snow outside from the comfort of the cabin but make sure you build at least one snowman before you leave.

At the end of the day you will be in front of the fireplace before you know it. The 4 bedrooms w/ luxurious linens and down comforters offer you a restful sleep. We hope your stay is memorable.

Check in time is 3:00P.M. and check out time is no later than 11:00A.M. Cleaning deposit required.

Great cabin in the woods with a lovely view of the mountains and sunset from the deck. It has just about everything you can think of that you would want in a cabin, is very clean and comfortable. Loved the rustic feel, with amazing décor. Thanks for sharing your family cabin with us. We loved it!!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We went up for the thanksgiving holiday. Grandparents, kid, grandkids, in total 6 adults and 3 kids. The kitchen is big and has a wonderfully large table. The out door deck and patio area are a wonderful plus, both equipt with tables and chairs. The bedrooms slept us all comfortably. We also used the provided pack n play, high chair, and baby gate for the top of the stairs.

Overall it was a success and we hope to be back once there is snow.

Great family place. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Here for my son's wedding at nearby Camp Blue and not wanting to camp, I rented the Vermeulen's cabin for four nights for myself and some family members. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The place is spacious, comfy, clean, and very well appointed with four bedrooms with good beds and high-quality linens, that sleep up to 12 (including the pak and play for our 16 month old granddaughter). The cabin has everything you need for a great stay including a well-equipped large kitchen with even a gas range top which I prefer. Other amenities we enjoyed include a large dining table, air conditioning (much needed over Labor Day weekend), a full size washer and dryer, barbecue grill, outside decks and sitting areas, and internet connectivity. A bathroom on the main (upper floor) would have been handy, but we were fine with the two downstairs. The setting is tranquil and scenic. All in all a perfect place to stay if you are visiting the Pinecrest area, and reasonably priced too. Thank you so much, Rochelle!

Perfect place for our family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was a perfect place for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. There were plenty of beds and plenty of places to sit and lounge inside as well as on the patios. The kitchen was well stocked and had more than enough dishes and utensils for our family of 7. The cookware and appliances (especially the gas stove!) were new and we appreciated having a gas grill outside for barbequing. It was peaceful and quiet and also centrally located so we could get to the Lake and fishing streams within minutes. Thank you, Rochelle! We are already planning a trip for next year!
