About the property

4 BR+/3.5 BA, 2,750 SF Custom-Built Log Cabin Near Kirkwood, Sleeps 9-12

Come stay in a secluded, custom-built, luxury log cabin nestled in the woods. Situated on five acres of private forested land in the heart of California’s historical Gold Country, Gold Creek Cabin is only a 2-hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area and just over an hour from Sacramento. You’ll avoid the Tahoe commute traffic and feel so far away from it all. Gold Creek Cabin (3,500 foot elevation) is 38 miles (61 km.) downhill from Kirkwood Mountain Resort and just 16 miles (26 km.) uphill from Sutter Creek, one of the most popular and well-preserved Gold Rush towns, offering a variety of nice restaurants, antique stores, and unique shops.

Gold Creek Cabin was designed to accommodate two families comfortably:

- 4 bedrooms plus loft, 3 ½ baths

- Three queen beds, built-in triple bunk bedroom, and queen & twin AeroBeds for loft (sleeps 9-12)

- Reading, game and TV loft with skylights

- Large recreation room with fireplace, pool table, dartboard

- Home theater with HDTV flat screen and Bose audio system

- HDTV, Blu-ray player with hundreds of DVDs, and Netflix streaming

- Free high speed (12 Mbps) WiFi service

- Large wrap-around deck on two sides with gas grill

- Private balconies off upstairs bedrooms

Enjoy “luxury camping” amenities:

- Gas campfire and Adirondack chairs on the front deck

- Gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances

- Radiant heating in bathroom floors

- Tankless hot water system for endless hot water

- Two gas fireplaces, instant on with thermostat

- Central heat and A/C

- Full-size washer and dryer in utility room

In the winter, easily access the cabin from the Bay Area even when it is snowing hard uphill at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Don't risk not being able to get to your vacation rental. Then make the drive to the ski mountain as soon as roads are clear. If roads are closed, enjoy all that Gold Creek Cabin has to offer, such as the home theater with 150+ DVDs, HDTV, dartboard, and pool table.

In the summer, plan to quickly get away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area with an easy, 2-hour drive into the heart of California's Gold Country. Explore the historical attractions and visit Gold Rush towns like Sutter Creek and Volcano. Take a hike in to the ''potholes'' and relax by the water. Plan to go fishing, boating, biking, hiking, kayaking, and really enjoy the outdoors. Grill on the large wrap-around deck and relax in the Adirondack chairs, enjoying a cold beverage.

Sit around the ''instant on'' gas fire pit at night and make s'mores or just enjoy the peace and quiet under the stars.

We will help you plan a customized Gold Country getaway for your group!

Layout: Queen bedroom and spa bathroom in basement along with recreation room, home theater, and laundry room. Queen bedroom with private bath and shower, living room with cathedral ceiling open to kitchen and dining area, half bath on first floor. Queen bedroom and triple built-in bunk bedroom share a bathroom with bath and shower, open reading and game loft on second floor.

About Cynthia and Don Kline

We were both born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we still live here, close to family. We love spending time in the outdoors, often exploring the many hiking trails in the East Bay with our two younger daughters.

Cynthia and Don Kline purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Cynthia and Don Kline chose Volcano

We fell in love with the Sierra foothills during our many road trips to and through the area over the years. When we came across Gold Creek Cabin in the wonderful town of Volcano, we were simply enchanted. Volcano has a lot of history for such a small town, and is one of the true hidden gems of the Gold Country. The cabin has been designed, built and maintained to the highest degree of craftsmanship, and we consider it a privilege to take the reins from its original owners and continue its hospitality moving forward.

At Gold Creek Cabin (3,500 foot elevation), you can stay above the hot valley climate in the summer and enjoy easy access even during heavy snowstorms in the winter. Incredible year-round recreation opportunities in the area include hiking, fishing, and boating in the summer and world-class skiing in the winter. The close proximity to the Bay Area (only a 2-hour drive) allows for stress-free access, without Tahoe-style traffic, via Highway 88. We look forward to sharing Gold Creek Cabin with you!

What makes this cabin unique

Gold Creek Cabin has something for everyone: the peace and quiet of a small town, with restaurants or the lively action of a casino just a short drive away; lots of outdoor activity options to choose from, or just cozy up inside by the fireplace with a mug of hot cocoa. Kids will love the triple bunk bed upstairs, while we love the seasonal creek which bubbles through the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say that we had a great time at the house! We mostly enjoyed everything that the house had to offer, and we especially enjoyed how secluded the house was. Since we’re from [city], most of us hadn’t seen stars that brightly in a long time!

Thanks again for a great stay!

Relaxing Weekend Getaway in Beautiful Gold Creek!

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia and Don are absolutely wonderful hosts, they make you feel right at home and are extremely responsive! The cabin is amazing, perfect for the family (especially if you have kids), with lots to do and see in the area. Kirkwood is just a 45 min drive away, an easy day trip that puts you back at the cabin in time to cozy up to the fire with a warm drink in hand. We'll definitely be coming back to visit soon!!

Thanks again for everything!
