About Lissa Kunis
I've recently decided to list our property and allow other families the privileges the Twain Harte experience we've enjoyed for so many years. The girls are now grown and like to return and share these experiences with their families. We live in the Sacramento area and still visit often. It truly is our opportunity to unplug (as much as possible) and recharge.
Lissa Kunis purchased this House in 2002
Why Lissa Kunis chose Twain Harte
I'm confident once you've come, you will leave wanting to return. We purchased this cabin as a close to home getaway for our family to experience all the Sierra's and Mother Lode history, to ski in the winter, fish, hike, swim in the summer. We've enjoyed countless Festivals, Fireman Pancake Breakfasts, day trips to Yosemite, attended lots of live theatre shows at both Sierra Reparatory theatre locations (Sonora and Columbia). Trail rides, fly fishing, hiking and picnics at Kennedy Meadows
What makes this House unique
Our busy life seems to need a quiet place to get away from the hustle and bustle to relax. To spend time doing the things you may not do at home, hang out without having to be somewhere, work a puzzle, bake cookies, sleep in, drink coffee amongst the birds and squirrels,

Super cute, shabby chic and cozy!
Perfect spot for a quick night away. Spent the day in Murphy’s wine tasting and the evening in close Sonora. Outdoor deck was lighted and quite lovely to relax and sip our grapes! My friends and I will definitely consider renting here again.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in Twain Harte and look forward to you as a return guest! :)
Cozy cabin in the woods
This is a neat cabin perched on a quiet slope in the woods. We were on a road trip so only stayed one night but after staying there, I would have gladly extended it a day or two. The cabin is well equipped with everything you would need and has numerous comfortable seating areas inside and outside on the spacious deck. Beds are comfortable and water pressure is excellent as well. I would recommend printed out directions rather than just trying to use the spoken navigation from a phone as the terrain creates significant lag time and drop-outs. We ended up taking the long way around getting in there but once you know then its easy to access. Communications with the owner was also quick and easy. This would be an excellent base for visiting the local area
Great little cabin with lots of space
We enjoyed our stay at this cute little cabin. Owner was easy to work with (we wanted to check in early). The decor in the house was homey and cute. She leaves some helpful notes around. My kids enjoyed playing the board games. Our only issue was the house was very warm since it was in the mid 90’s while we were there and there’s no central air, but lots of fans. I don’t blame the cabin, because I don’t think it normally gets that hot there. It was still 10 degrees cooler than the Central Valley! Thank you for the hospitality!
everyting was good
the property is really nice and confy i like it.
Good location, beautiful area. Older but, so cute.
The cabin is roomy, well furnished and comfortable. I’d have preferred not to have to clean the downstairs toilet upon arrival. Used, not flushed, long before we arrived. Needs deep cleaning, cobwebs, dead flies. Cable is very basic but, lots of dvds. Cul de sac location is great, beautiful off back deck. The neighbors found a reason to come over, every day. Return pole saw at 9pm., borrow leaf blower, next am, leave trash can, one brought an ashtray, while we were out for the day, after noticing a coke can was being used. It was on back deck, which could only be accessed by going through the cabin. It actually got funny. We enjoyed our stay, the area is beautiful. The cabin worked great, for what we wanted. It’s older (think 60s) but, very comfortable and decorated nicely. The bed we used was good. A big plus was it’s pet friendly.
Our family loved getting away from the Bay Area for the weekend and found this cabin to be a welcome relief. Comfortable beds, inviting fire place, wonderful peace filled time on the deck. Our only concern for this place is the upkeep. Broken chairs. Outdoor grill with no propane. Nails coming up through the deck boards. Overall we loved it and would love for this place to be available in the future. It is a treasure.
Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. Our property manager will ensure the propane is exchanged and has addressed the maintenance concerns. We look forward to your return visit to our property and Twain Harte.
