This vacation rental cabin in Twain Harte, CA has been in our family for generations & we’ve been renting for over a decade. It was one of the first homes built in the Twain Harte area, and we've worked to preserve the knotty pine and the traditional style elements that have always made it feel like a warm, rustic welcome to the California Gold Country, even as we've kept the kitchen appliances, furniture, and decorations updated for modern tastes and needs.

Our Twain Harte lodging comfortably fits eight to ten people; however, we've rented it out for Boy Scout, Cub Scout, and Girl Scout camp-outs, family reunions, wedding parties, church groups, and retreats. These groups have covered the driveway and deck with tents and filled the cozy, generously sized living room with people in sleeping bags, so there's no need to be afraid that your party can't stay comfortably in this cabin even if you're bringing plenty of people along.

We provide blankets and pillows, along with the first roll of toilet paper and paper towels. There are no complimentary sheets, pillow cases, towels, shampoo/conditioner, or other personal hygiene products, leaving plenty of room for your favorite soaps, shampoos, and a set of sheets that you can customize for your own comfort.

BEDROOMS:

This cabin has four bedrooms, along with a queen-size pull out sofa in the living room for adventurous children and unexpected guests. Room One, which is at the front of the cabin, has one queen bed; Room Two offers two twin beds and is located in the back of the cabin. Room Three is a loft bedroom that's ideal for kids, boasting two twin beds, a small TV, and access through a steep ladder that keeps the loft feeling like a secret hideaway. Keep watch on your kids in Room Four, which includes one queen bed, a small TV, the ladder to the loft, and its own door to the side deck. Note: This room is used to access the loft, so you lose a bit of privacy.

BATHROOMS:

There are two full bathrooms in this spacious vacation rental, one of which is accessible from the house. The second bathroom is in the basement, which requires going outside and under the deck, but makes washing up when you've just returned from a long day of exploration much easier. Both bathrooms have a toilet, shower, and sink, and the basement bathroom has a complimentary washer and dryer, though neither bathroom is equipped with a bathtub. The tankless water heater gives you endless hot water for your showers, but please try to keep your showers short, so that you can help your temporary neighbors in Tuolumne County fight California's current drought.

OTHER AMENITIES:

The living room features a stereo system for your music, and a 47-inch big screen HD TV with a DVD player, VCR, and Comcast cable to keep you up to date on all your favorite shows. You'll also have access to free, high speed Comcast Wi-Fi throughout the house. The cabin's land line offers unlimited free calling to local numbers and businesses; for long distance or toll calls, you'll have to use your cell phone.

The paved driveway has plenty of space for all the vehicles you'll bring, whether you drive to Twain Harte in multiple cars or SUVs or take your trailer, a short RV, or a boat on vacation with you.

There is no air-conditioning installed; instead, we can offer you a variety of ways to bring the natural, pine-scented mountain breezes into every corner of the cabin, including two ceiling fans in the living room and a selection of portable fans for the rest of the house.

KITCHEN:

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the basic cooking utensils, silverware, plates, cups, toaster, coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave oven, blender, garbage disposal, high chair, and soap you'll need. Just bring your own food to cook on the gas stove, your own coffee, tea, or cocoa to brew before going out for the day or staying in for a long, luxurious evening, or some charcoal and fluid for the charcoal BBQ waiting out on the spacious deck.

There is no dishwasher, but if you're washing up your daily dishes at the sink when dusk falls, you may notice that some of the local deer, birds, and squirrels are coming out just behind the deck to pay you a visit. If you give them some cracked corn and peanuts, you may be able to charm them into coming by every evening to liven up your dish-washing routine!

About Craig Mullins

Been vacationing in Twain Harte, CA ever since I was a baby. Same with my mom and her dad... We love this place, and I know you will too!

Craig Mullins purchased this cabin in 1988

Why Craig Mullins chose Gold Country / High Sierra

This is the place we had been renting from another owner for years. He decided it was time to sell and we couldn't help ourselves. We HAD to buy it!

What makes this cabin unique

This was one of the very first cabins ever built in Twain Harte. The original owner built it himself with trees cut down in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Girl Scout Troop enjoyed staying in this home last weekend. We visited Columbia Gold Rush Days and rode the train in Jamestown using this rental as our home base. The house was well supplied and very comfortable. Thank you for a fun weekend.

2nd time staying at the Mullins' Cabin, definitely not our last:)

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating home or host. Everything we needed to bake birthday cakes and bbq was provided which was awesome considering I forgot so many little things. We thought got water availability would be an issue, but there was plenty for our group of ten every day, we had zero issues :) the wrap around porch was great for the whole family with plenty of seating the cabin is also conveniently located just a 4 minute drive from twain harte market and 3 minutes from 7-11. Pinecrest is only 20 minutes away and dodge is roughly that as well. This would have served as a great home base for the lake or snow, but we were so comfy that we ended up just hanging out and catching up all weekend. The cabin is also laid out so that there is space and privacy between rooms, which is a plus. As soon as we can get our schedules in line, we will be back out for the summer!

THINGS TO DO IN TWAIN HARTE:

This cabin gives you easy access to Twain Harte Lake, which offers breathtaking views of Tuolumne County and a secluded slice of paradise where you can lounge on the beach, splash around in fresh, sparkling water, play ping-pong, volleyball, or shuffleboard while you dry off. If you can't swim, you can watch everyone else from shore while you enjoy something savory or sweet from the newly remodeled snack shack, stay inside for one of the bingo games held onsite, read a book, or take the plunge and let one of the local swim instructors teach you to tackle the water safely.

During the summer, you and your family, friends, and guests can take a ten minute walk to Eproson Park, which has playgrounds for kids and toddlers, a skate park for daredevils of all ages, and a variety of concerts and movies on the weekends. There's also a full, 18-hole miniature golf course in town if you're looking for a fun afternoon with the family, and a 9-hole golf course where fully grown golf players can get a few rounds of practice.

If you're lucky enough to visit our vacation rental in the Sierra Nevada Foothills during the winter, you can take advantage of the lush, powder-swept slopes at Dodge Ridge Ski Area (Dodge Ridge Ski Resort), sled down the soft hills at Leland Snowplay in Pinecrest, practice your spins, twirls, and other ice skating moves at Long Barn, or just watch the snow fall while drinking a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate and enjoying a freshly built blaze in the fireplace, or the cozy warmth of the cabin's central heating. We don't supply firewood, but feel free to bring as much with you as you need. You can also take a five minute drive and stop by the Twain Harte Market to stock up on cold drinks during the summer months, buy the ingredients you need for winter meals, or take your taste buds on a world tour with the free beer and wine tastings there every Saturday.

THINGS TO DO OUTSIDE TWAIN HARTE:

The nearby town of Sonora offers a number of convenient stores like Wal-Mart & Safeway, warm, friendly restaurants like Gus' Steakhouse & Sports Lounge and The Peppery Bar and Grill, and a busy downtown that has a movie theater (Regal Sonora Stadium 10) and two live theaters; Stage 3 Theatre & Sierra Repertory Theatre. Farther down the road, there's the town of Columbia, with attractions including historic Columbia State Park where you can pan for gold, take an old-fashioned family portrait, sample locally made candy or sarsaparilla made at the Jack Douglass Saloon, and take a stagecoach ride through the trails that pioneers of the California Gold Rush created over a century ago. There are also opportunities for gambling near Twain Harte, including the popular bingo games at Chicken Ranch Casino in Jamestown and the mix of family-friendly play areas like arcade games and bowling, sophisticated entertainment, sports bar, buffets, live bands, comedy shows and high-stakes gaming at Black Oak Casino in Sonora.

For more adventurous travelers, there are whitewater rafting packages available through the expert guides at Zephyr Whitewater Rafting; you can also visit Moaning Caverns, where you can rappel past layers of darkness into glittering, gem-lined caverns or race past your friends on zip-lines that let you fly up to 40 MPH for ¼ of a mile.

Yosemite National Park is only two hours away, giving you the opportunity to spend a day exploring the scenic heights of Half Dome's hiking trails, watching the Tuolumne River dart playfully through peaceful Tuolumne Meadows, or taking in the titanic majesty of Bridalveil Falls and the giant sequoias. Other areas in Yosemite you might want to see include; Yosemite Falls, El Capitan, Valley View, Lembert Dome, Tunnel View, Cathedral Peak, Glacier Point, Vernal Falls, Mariposa Grove or Nevada Falls. If you can't get enough of the water, be sure to check out some of the spectacular recreational lakes scattered between Twain Harte and Yosemite; Pinecrest Lake, which is only 23 minutes away, even offers outdoor movies to help you wind down after a busy day of fishing, boating, and floating lazily through a sunny California afternoon. Other nearby lakes include New Melones Lake, Lake Tulloch, Lyons Lake, and Lake Don Pedro.
