Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our cozy, yet spacious chalet is located where Mi-Wuk Village meets the Stanislaus National Forest. The chalet is on over half an acre and has three levels with more than 1600 square feet. Mi-Wuk Village is above the snow line, yet only 150 miles from the Bay Area.

The main floor opens into a cathedral ceilinged room that includes the living room, dining room and kitchen. Two sliding glass doors lead out to a large deck with a beautiful view of the forest and the sounds of a stream. This floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs is a large loft bedroom with a half bath. Downstairs is a large family room with two futon couches, another full bath and laundry.

The Stanislaus National Forest is Hearthstone’s backyard. Discover great hiking at various difficulty levels or just hang out on the deck and enjoy the view and sounds. The cabin has games, puzzles, and a hammock. Pinecrest Lake, which is 15 minutes away, offers swimming, boat rentals (kayaks, paddle-boats, canoes, sailboats, and motorboats), and great fishing.

The small town of Mi-Wuk Village is one mile away and Twain Harte has great shopping just three and a half miles down the mountain. Enjoy wildflowers in the spring. And in the winter, Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is only 15 miles away. Cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding are nearby.

The cabin easily sleeps 12 people. Each bedroom on the main floor has a queen-size bed. The loft bedroom has a queen-size bed and two twin beds. The two full-size futon couches in the family room make into comfortable beds. Each bed has a warm, down comforter and soft pillows. There are plenty of extra blankets. While we do have linens for your use, we recommend you bring your own sheets and towels so you don’t have to do laundry before you leave.

The well-equipped kitchen is stocked with basic spices, oils, and condiments and has place settings for 12. We have sleds in the winter and iner tubes for the summer. A washer and dryer are in the family room. There is a DVD hooked up to a TV (no cable or sattelite). You can bring movies or rent them at the Twain Harte Market Red Box.

About Rinda Bartley

Two families own this lovely retreat in the mountains. We go up as often as we can, though not nearly as much as we would like. We all live in Berkeley, CA. One family has two young adults. The other has two elementary school students. They keep us busy.

Rinda Bartley purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Rinda Bartley chose Dodge Ridge

We all love the beauty of the Sierra mountains. We chose to be at the snow line so we would have a lot of Sugar Pines and Cedars, but not too far up the mountain so it would be closer to home. We like that it is only 140 miles from the Bay Area. The cul de sac makes it a calm setting.

What makes this cabin unique

The two sets of large sliding glass doors that lead to a deck with a view only of trees makes the cabin feel so secluded. We love the three levels and the three bathrooms. It means that you can bring up a whole bunch of people and not feel crowded. The location makes it easy to get to stores in Twain Harte or Sonora, and equally easy to get to the Higher Sierras and Pinecrest Lake.

Loved Hearthstone!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous time at the chalet. We cannot wait to do it again! I loved the neighborhood - it was quiet and peaceful. I loved the location - close to Pinecrest lake and Black Oak Casino. I loved the chalet itself - plenty of room for everyone and yet, nice and cozy. We truly had fun at Hearthstone and we will definitely be going back in the future.

Beautiful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

More privacy than most cabins, as it backs up to the forest. It was so nice to have 3 levels, as we had 3 families staying here. Three bathrooms were very convenient too. We hope to reserve this cabin again.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. It was just a friend and I taking a motorcycle trip. We used the cabin as a base camp and rode the Gold Country on day trips. Two comfortable bedrooms, so we each had our own. The deck and view were fantastic. We ate outside and hung out on the deck for hours. Very peaceful. It was exactly what we were hoping. The BBQ didn't have any propane so we couldn't BBQ. We ended up just using a frying pan in the welll-stocked kitchen.

Everything was neat and clean, yet cozy. My Verizon worked fine (two bars, good enough for Netflix) but my friend's AT&T had no reception. The bathrooms were very adequate with good hot water and water pressure.

If you walk down the hill, there is a small creek at the bottom (5 minutes, but it's steep - not a flip flop trail) where you can soak your weary feet in the cold water and enjoy a frosty adult beverage.

The .Mi-Wuk General store is not very well supplied and has almost no fresh food (no fresh vegetables, meat or fruit), so not a bad idea to stock up in Sonora.

I hope to stay here again soon and bring my wife. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, this is your place. Plus the cabin can comfortably sleep an army. Very good for two couples and a brood of kids (loft and finished basement, each with a bathroom), a get-together with an olde buddy or a romantic weekend. The rental process was very easy and the owner was responsive thru e-mail. The rental contract is short and easy to read and Docu-sign. It's not long and abusive like others I have seen. Our deposit was promptly returned with no hassle.

This cabin is not "luxury at its finest", but who wants that in a mountain get-away? It was exactly what it should be; clean, comfortable, spacious, and convenient with a large deck and a peaceful ambiance. FIVE STARS!
