The Lodge Near Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort

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


About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 12)

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 4:00P.M. and check out time is 11:00A.M. Cleaning deposit required.

what we liked....

  • 5 of 5

We liked getting our questions answered promptly before we left. We liked the view, the comfortable beds, plenty of space for 8 adults and 2 teens, the well-stocked kitchen where we did a Lot of cooking (but it took us a while to remember that high-altitude cooking can be much slower than here in the Bay Area), the fun and interesting decor, the place to pitch horseshoes, the nearness to snow and to Pinecrest lake, the deck, the patio....

We had a lovely long weekend. Thanks!

Beautiful stay! Photos did not do property justice!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the property, 4 bedrooms on first floor when you walk in, two bathrooms both with showers, then having living room and kitchen/dining room upstairs, was PERFECT! I did not feel the photos are able to fully showcase how nice that was. I also feel I bombarded Rochelle with emails prior to our stay but she was very helpful and attentive ;)

Tips not communicated on VRBO site include: Fireplace is gas so no need for firewood, check in was 4 p.m. and check out was 11 a.m. during the time of our stay, horseshoe pit available and shoes in the outside closet, driveway will accommodate more than two vehicles if lined up behind one another (we had 4), and yes, bring hand and bath towels! Additionally, the address listed upon booking may not work for Google maps, so try using the town of Long Barn, not Pinecrest (Pinecrest is only used for the lake nearby). Cold Springs has a small market if you forget anything. Also, keep in mind, no cell service in this area but wifi worked great!

Will be requesting this cabin again if I chose to revisit the area.

Thanks Rochelle, hope it helps!

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!!
