About the property

Luxury Retreat Bordering Both Amador & El Dorado Wine Countries

**20% OFF LAST-MINUTE DISCOUNTS: ALREADY APPLIED FOR VACANCIES WITHIN 28 DAYS

Welcome to the Hillcrest Cabin, a luxury, hillside retreat situated along the picturesque Shenandoah Wine Trail. We are located in the quaint and quirky village of River Pines, which is conveniently centered amongst two world-class wine regions: The Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, and the Fairplay AVA of El Dorado County. The nearest winery is only one mile down the road, and there are more than 50 wineries within a 10 mile radius to enjoy! The neighborhood was originally built in the 1920’s as a vacation resort, but has since become a popular community for retirees. Visitors will enjoy the same regional activities the locals do including: wine tasting, hiking, boating, fishing, cavern tours, and sightseeing at the many Gold Rush era sites and historic towns.

Our family purchased this unique property in 2013 and began renovating it from the top down. Special property features include: new central heat and air, hardwood flooring, fresh paint, and updated fixtures throughout. Guests will appreciate the home’s stylish amenities and furnishings including king size beds, luxury linens, plus attractive artwork and accessories. The cabin also offers a fully remodeled and stocked kitchen with new shaker cabinets, quartz counters and GE slate appliances. The designer bathrooms were fully re-built offering a clean and modern aesthetic. We also offer our guests a brand new 50” HDTV with a bluetooth sound system. Enjoy one of DirecTV’s best entertainment packages featuring Music Choice, plus all of the HBO channels!

The cabin sits on a hillside double-lot dotted with tall oaks, pine trees and interesting rock outcroppings. Perched in the treetops, you’ll feel a sense of serenity and privacy, even with neighbors nearby. The property offers a spacious outdoor area dedicated for picnics, campfires and good conversation. There's also an outdoor balcony featuring an infrared Charbroil gas grill that guests can use for outdoor cooking.

We are proud to be a pet friendly vacation rental. Guests are welcome to bring their well-behaved and well-groomed canine companions (sorry, no cats). An additional fee applies per pet, and helps us cover the added expense of hosting four legged guests. We have dog beds onsite as well as food and water bowls. Please note that our property is not fenced, so our cabin is best suited for dogs that will not wander or stray. We do provide an outdoor stake with extended tethers so your pups can roam safely and enjoy some outdoor time with you.

Thanks so much for visiting our property profile. We hope that you’ll join us soon and make our vacation rental your new home away from home! Sincerely, The Juarez-More Family – Shelley, Jason, Carissa, Michael & Chelsea

**Last-minute discounted rates are automatically applied and valid for new bookings only. Standard rates are $140/night (Mon - Thu) and $235/night (Fri - Sun)

About Carissa More (& Family)

Family owned cabin by three couples. This is our family's second home. We are Realtors and professional property rehabbers. This property is one of our proudest remodels, and we are happy to share it with other travelers and wine lovers.

Carissa More (& Family) purchased this house in 2013

Why Carissa More (& Family) chose River Pines

We love wine and we love the Sierra Foothills Gold Country! It's California's historic wine country with some of the oldest producing vines. Even beyond wine tasting there are so many sightseeing and recreational opportunities to enjoy in the region.

What makes this house unique

The closest winery, Sobon Estate, is only a 1 minute drive from our cabin! Keep driving beyond and you'll find dozens of world class vineyards and tasting rooms all within a 15 mile radius. Aside from wine tasting, the rugged beauty of the Sierra Foothills also beckons hikers, rafters, cyclists, and history buffs.

Quaint Bungalow with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hillcrest house the first weekend in March and enjoyed 99% of it. Six ad..ults were able to enjoy 3 days/2 nights and never step on each other's toes. The space is created in a way that makes socializing a priority. Nice decorations and PLENTY of dishes (and good pans). That area is so beautiful and full of things to do. Just wish it had not rained most of the time as we didn't get to enjoy the firepit. Maybe next time.

Cozy wine country retreat

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times and always have a wonderful experience. Clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. A quick drive to so many wineries and Amador brewing. We will be back!

Quiet, comfortable, well stocked cabin.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed your cabin for 5 days. Quiet neighborhood with easy access to everything. Cabin was well equipped & felt very comfortable. We cooked all meals here and found the kitchen well stocked with utensils & basic spices. Only draw back was the number of dogs that run loose. But we managed to avoid contact with our dog.
