4BR/2BA Sierra Vacation House & NEWLY remodeled bathroom
There are places where forest and water meet in such close proximity that one would swear that nature herself was a travel agent. A four-season getaway destination!
NEW for 2017: Home security system.
***UPDATE Jan. 2017. Please note: We have had two recent guests in January that did not treat our home as we would treat their home if we were their guests. They broke things, damaged oven, markers on quilts; then denied the damages to the insurance so we are unable to recover damages. We will need to evaluate guests to ensure they are respectful of our home. We hope you understand. Thank you!***

Marilyn purchased this House in 2011
Why Marilyn chose Mi-Wuk Village
I fell in LOVE with this home (after visiting dozens of properties in the area, including Sonora, Twain Harte and Pinecrest) the moment I walked in and saw the beautiful picture window in the living room and all the amazing, authentic woodwork throughout the home I knew I just had to purchase it. I never even opened the kitchen cabinets! Trust me, I'm very picky and you've never quite seen a home/cabin like this -- if you have, let me know, I want to rent it, too. (smile)
What makes this House unique
EXCLUSIVE: First and only hot tub in the area! Amazing views of the lush redwood, cedar and pine trees from every-single-room. This home is very private in an abundant natural setting.

The home was quaint and lovely. Fit our family perfectly. All of the beds were so comfortable!
We loved the wood burning fireplace in the living room, made the home nice and warm. All of the bedrooms were a great size and very nice. My family loved the game room to play video games. The hot tub was super hot and relaxing. Would stay again!
Well maintained cabin with all amenities for a great vacation
This property is very well maintained. Has a beautiful living space and a large kitchen. We traveled with 6 adults and 4 kids (2 babies). House features 3 large bedrooms and 1 additional bedroom/play room for kids with 2 twin beds. The hot tub was hot and we were able to take a dip with no issues. (I do wish it was a bit larger as it fits 4 people only). I will want to rent this property again in the future.
Definitely Want To Come Back!!!
The inside of the home is AMAZING and has such a warm, welcoming, homey feel to it. Kitchen is fully loaded with dishes, pots/pans & cooking utensils. Bathrooms are very modern and there was plenty of hot water to fill up the tubs & for both showers to be running at the same time. Make sure to drink your coffee on the deck and enjoy the peaceful scenery. Try out the hot tub if you can. Make sure and read the green binder as it has useful information.
All in all, it is an amazing getaway spot that takes you away from a busy work week. I would highly recommend it if you find yourself getting worn out the of the same routing and want to wake up to a Sierra scenery with an occasional family of deers! I am definitely coming back to enjoy what every season has to offer.
The "Cabin" was everything and more that we were looking for. The location is a perfect break for someone like me who spends most of my time in the asphalt jungle. Although the dwelling is amidst the beautiful Sierra Mountains, the cabin is very modern and roomy. With Wi Fi, laundry options, game room, and sheer spaciousness we couldn't have been more pleased. Near lakes and rivers (i fish also) I was able to take a short drive to popular fishing locations as well. I will definitely visit again and also let our friends know about this hidden jewel. Thanks much for a great stay.
The Sierra Mountain House exceeded our expectations as the pictures don't do it justice. Our family enjoyed this property and the surrounding area so much. You should reserve this property for your family/friends as we enjoyed it and plan to visit again. It was a perfect get away for our family and so close to everything we enjoy.
This was a fabulous house! Very well stocked and beautifully decorated.
The downstairs bathroom was a dream to use. The showers were great. The kids enjoyed the two large tubs and the game room. They were in the game room all the time. There was an abundance of board games to choose from in the living room too. The kitchen was a joy to cook in with everything you needed. The dumb waiter was very helpful for luggage and groceries. The downstairs queen bed needs to be replaced. It sagged and squeaked so that it was difficult to get a good nights rest. In that bedroom there were only a few hangers and no drawers making it difficult to unpack.It would have been helpful to know ahead of time about the extremely steep driveway that was difficult to maneuver in a truck, but it helped to have a lower garage for our second vehicle. Mostly, we absolutely loved this property!
We really appreciate your review and feedback so we will be replacing the mattress in the downstairs bedroom next week, as we always want to ensure that guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay. Also, we will include more hangers in the downstairs closet.
We are so happy to learn you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving the property in such great order. We would gladly welcome you and your family to stay again.
Best wishes to you and yours,
Marilyn and Eric

The spacious cabin easily accommodated 6 adults and 2 children. Every room of the house was beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything we needed. The cabin owner was very attentive, answered all of my emails in a very timely manner, and made sure everything at the cabin was to our liking. I can't wait to go back in the summer!!!' Lu, January 2013 'WOW! What an amazing vacation. It was a dream winter getaway and the owner was incredible! We would definitely go again! Marilyn went above and beyond the call of duty and did so many little things to make us feel welcome and special. She was always available to answer questions and give guidance. We could not have asked for more!' Chris, Christmas week 2012 'My wife and I rented the house for the Thanksgiving along with 2 other couples. The place is absolutely perfect to rest and spend some relaxing time. The place was really comfortable for everyone of us and the way the house as build helps on interacting and spending all the time together. Cabin owner was amazing, she responded all the messages really quickly and even bought a roasting pan for us to cook the Turkey! Definitely recommend to book this house! One of my best experiences so far!' Victor, November 2012 'I came to stay at the Sierra Mountain Resort for my birthday. What an AMAZING place to stay. It's quiet, cozy, has everything you could want for a mountain get-away. The grill, sunken tubs, modern kitchen, and TONS of kitchen supplies made for a VERY comfortable living situation for those who don't want to 'rough it.' My friends and I drove to Travertine Hot Springs which was about 2 hours away (through the beautiful Sierra Mountains) which was SO FUN. It was lovely returning to the cabin after a long day and cozying up next to the wood-burning fireplace and relaxing. The host was a dream to work with, always responding when I needed something and making us feel like SHE was the lucky one having us stay. I would say WE were definitely the lucky ones. AH-MAZING place. Go. Go now! Why are you still reading this? GOOOOO!' Jessica, November 2012
