Twain Harte 4 Seasons Resort - Lake Privileges

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 full bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, 2 lofts, 2 sleeper sofas

This 3800 sq ft. three story home on an acre of land has a wonderful mountain cabin look and feel that has been updated with modern amenities to make your stay convenient and comfortable. A/C in both lofts and in Master Bedroom.

In summer, have a barbecue, sunbathe, enjoy happy hour and dine on the rear deck, or read a book in the front deck all under the tall pines.

We have books to read, games to play, basketball, foosball, ping pong all to entertain you. Or if you prefer relax and take a snooze in the hammock out back.

For swimming, sunning, and socializing you will want to spend time at beautiful Twain Harte Lake. You have LAKE PRIVILEGES! Choose the sandy beach or 'the rock' and swim out to one of the many docks. For the young or young at 'HARTE' go down one of the two water slides. You will enjoy this serene, private oasis. We have beach towels and chairs for the 12 of you. Note the gatehouse charges $8.00 per person per day.

Twain Harte also has a public golf course and tennis courts. For family fun you will love the not-too-challenging miniature golf course downtown and grab a soft serve ice cream cone afterwards at “The Rock” or if you prefer enjoy one of their 15 beers on tap.

Saturday nights from 6 to 8 PM mid June through early September, walk downtown to Eproson Park for 'Concerts in the Pines', a free outdoor concert featuring a different band every week.

In the winter, Dodge Ridge is 20 miles up the highway where you can spend the days skiing and snowboarding, or go to Leland High Sierra Snowplay in Strawberry, for sledding and tubing.

Come back home and get cozy in the living room by the (gas) fireplace with a glass of wine then walk to one of the nearby restaurants for dinner or stay in and cook your own in one of our two well-equipped kitchens. Eat at the dining table, kitchen nook, or at the bar.

Make a day trip (just over two hours) to visit world-famous Half Dome, one of many splendors in Yosemite National Park. Also visit nearby wineries, bistros, art galleries, and boutiques. Sonora is 15 minutes away and Murphy’s is 45. Enjoy boating, fishing, and jet skiing at Lake Tulloch, a quick 25 minute drive.

After your travels you will look forward to returning to the pine forests of Twain Harte and the quiet comfort of Button Willow.

The master bedroom has a CAL King bed. There are two lofts one with a queen bed, the other with a full bed. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed. There are two sleeper sofas; one in the downstairs living room and one in the TV room. The beds will be made with clean sheets and pillow cases when you arrive. At the end of your stay just leave the beds unmade and the dirty towels on the floor. Our housekeeper will clean the cabin for you. Access to the private Twain Harte Lake is also included for a $6.00 per person charge payable at the lake.

Impressive Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was by far one of the most organized and clean cabins I've ever stayed at! We enjoyed a memorable Thanksgiving here with our family. I can't stress enough how immaculate this wonderful, cozy cabin is. It makes you feel at home with all the necessities you could possibly need when staying away from home. The moment I stepped foot in this cabin I was blown away with how neat and clean it was. I am beyond impressed with how much love the owners have put into this cabin, you can really tell they want to make your stay seamless!

Thank you so much Mike and Mary!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As usual, we had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It's like a home away from home for us. I'd like to give it a bad review so we wouldn't have to compete to stay there but I'd be lying. Always clean with everything provided. 5 + stars!

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, Thank you and your family for thinking of us once again. It is heart warming to hear you state it is like a home away from home. That is EXACTLY what we are striving for! Please take advantage of the winter months to enjoy skiing, boarding and tobogganing at Dodge Ridge or Leland Snow Park this season. You are always welcome! Warmest Regards, Mike & Mary

Our family had a fantastic time at this home! We had family staying at other homes in the area that were not nearly as equipped. This home has everything; necessities right down to toiletries. Toys, games, movies, beach gear.... endless. The home is very spacious and we never felt on top of each other. Just a beautiful stay and I'd like to give a huge thanks for the attention to details to the owners. Thanks for a great stay! I wish we had stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Dear Wendi, Thank you selecting our home as part of your special family celebration. We love the home and love sharing it with others. We appreciate you taking cared of the house I hope you and your family will stay again. The proximity to Dodge Ridge is convenient without being so high up chains are required. With warmest regards, Mike & Mary

About Mary Dearborn

The home was originally purchased as a retirement home for the Dearborn patriarch and matriarch which they enjoyed to the fullest. Now the time is come to share it with others. We are both originally from San Mateo and now live in San Ramon. We have two adult children both in college. We are looking forward to the time we can retire full time and spend more time traveling.

Mary Dearborn purchased this house in 1988

Why Mary Dearborn chose Twain Harte

This beautiful house is only minutes from so many local attractions, and very comfortably fits the entire family or small group too. The house is kept very clean and very comfortable for our guests to enjoy. We've included books to borrow, games to play, and menus of local establishments. We know you will notice the difference from the moment you walk in the front door. Why this house? It is the best value anywhere in the Twain Harte Area! Send us a note and let us know the how we can serve you better.

What makes this house unique

Comfortably sleeps up to 12. - very clean throughout. Two driveways; upper and lower with private entrances. The house boasts two complete kitchens one upstairs and one downstairs and three full baths. The house is just minutes from downtown Twain Harte. We are one of the few remaining properties that have a Twain Harte Lake membership. Please note we are kid friendly, but not childproof for exploring toddlers.

The perfect 4 seasons resort. The summers in the pines are pleasant during the day and nights are generally mild, making Twain Harte a pleasant escape from the long, hot summers of the California Central Valley and the chill of the Bay Area. Summer events start in full swing by Memorial Day. There are endless activities till the fall approaches and Oktoberfest is celebrated. During the winter months, Twain Harte is famous for winter sports and snow. Skiing and snowmobiling are the main attractions during this period. The snow laden pine trees present an excellent scene to thrill the soul. In the spring, when snow starts melting from the mountains and flowers start blooming, it is time for boating, golfing, hiking, camping, fishing, rock climbing, horseback riding, and biking through the forests & along the many rivers and streams.
