Black Bear Cabin offers a clean, charming and comfortable place to stay while you explore the Stanislaus National Forest and high country Wilderness areas. We are located conveniently just off Hwy 108 with excellent year round access, barring winter storm road closures. The cabin is family friendly with a fenced yard and also pet friendly for clean well behaved, fully house trained dogs. We also welcome singles, couples and small groups of friends. Restaurants and food stores are nearby.

Le logement

Black Bear Cabin is an old structure with previous lives: once a doughnut shop and long ago a logging office. Before our renovation it was the office for the old Sonora Pass Resort, which was a motel and restaurant/bar. Very poorly taken care of for many years, we've started a long renovation to save this lovely place and the cabin was our first remodel. Since then the restaurant has been remodeled into our beautiful home. We plan to begin the next stage soon.
The cabin has two sort of small bedrooms; one with a queen bed, table and chair, and the other with two twin beds, a dresser, and a rocking chair. The main room has the kitchen, a dining table that accommodates six, a futon, an upholstered rocking chair and a love seat with a large matching ottoman. Very cozy. The bathroom is accessed through the queen bedroom and has a shower and toilet.
The heat is provided by a free standing propane fireplace that is thermostat controlled. The cabin can be cooled with the swamp cooler in the main room. We provide a child gate if requested.
The floors are bamboo which is easy to clean and wipe up snow puddles. The covered front porch is a good place to take off boots and towel off a snowy dog. There is a fence around a small front yard that is a safe place for small children and pets.

Accès des voyageurs

The parking area is big and we invite guests to park anywhere in that space. For loading and unloading guests may pull up to the several steps that lead to the cabin. We own all the property surrounding the 1 acre pond and guests are welcome to any part of that and the small boat dock. Fishing is allowed catch and release with crimped hooks. You must carry a license. The row boat is also available but we are missing the oars and currently have paddles. (we're looking for oars). The large meadow is also ours and guests are welcome there as well. Our property includes the dirt road behind the cabin.
The Sonora Pass Road is about 300' from the cabin and road noise can be heard if the windows are open. At night it is silent, and after Labor Day and before Memorial Day there is a noticeable difference. Only two guests have mentioned this to us. Most guests love the access.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We prefer a phone call if you need assistance. If you see us around outdoors of course we are available to assist you at any time. Just ask.

Autres remarques

If the pond is frozen please don't just go out there to slide around without having us test the depth of the ice. We'll drill a hole in it to make sure it's thick enough to walk on.
There is an in ground pool on the property which is not listed as an amenity due to the rough condition of the bottom. We use it primarily as a reservoir for fire protection.
Some people are surprised that there is daytime road noise. Summer is busy, others seasons not so much.

Judith and her husband Michael are very hospitable. The place is easy to find and super clean. They have three cute little greeters and the private pond is a good place for young kids to explore. Add a private bonfire which Judith and Michael will gladly set up for you and it's a nice quiet way to unwind at night before turning in.

Thank you for the very nice review. We do hope to see you again next year. Sorry that you felt it was noisy. We do have the road out there, but we hope people see all our best assets. We are still a work in progress. I always think about one of my favorite resorts, Sorensons in the Hope Valley. Their cabins are very close to a main highway near Carson Pass. Trucks go through all night, yet the place is still very attractive. That inspires me to not worry so much about it. And the summer is the busiest time. Other seasons are calmer and the road is quieter..

Really enjoyed visiting the area, so much to see & lots of nostalgia from my youth. Don't miss Pie Crest Lake & Old Strawberry Store & Restaurant/Inn. The Sugar Shack down in Sugar Pine has some great treats too. Judith's place is beautifully remodeled & conveniently located near everything. It's just the right size for a small family. The guest book with tips from recent visitors is a nice touch too. Loved the stay!

Hi Paul. Thanks for the very nice review. There's not much we can do about Summer road noise. It mellows out a lot after Labor Day and before Memorial Day. I will take your advice and take a photo from the road area. The buildings look very small from that angle but perhaps it will be helpful. I usually send local directions when a reservation is made, but maybe it's too far in advance. I will try to resend those closer to reservation day. Thank you again for coming and for your review. All input is helpful. Judith

All I can say is that it is an amazing cabin. Lovely place, all the amenities are there, lots of beautiful places around. Also peaceful and quiet. There are ducks or geese in a pond in front of the property and lots of other birds, singing of which is quite delightful if you are tired from urban areas. I personally really enjoyed sitting in a rocking chair with cup of herbal tea and reading amusing book about gnomes :) I will sure come back again!

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The cabin is charming and welcoming, and the hostess Judith was very accommodating. The cabin is a short drive from Pinecrest lake and various hiking trails, etc.- a good central location/base-camp for a mountain vacation. Add in that it is one of the few spots that welcomes dogs, and this is a great find.

Hi Kevin Thank you for the positive review. We don't advertise the pool because it needs a complete re-do and the bottom is rough. Currently we consider it a reservoir for fire protection and the big pump is sitting there at the deep end ready to go. We are both former fire fighters. We are cleaning it this week because my grandson is learning to swim. Yes we have noise from traffic, especially on weekends. I will write more about that in the description as you suggest. Most of the year it's much quieter. After labor day it's noticeable right away. We see this place as a great location for accessing all the gorgeous places around us. We have good year round access because of the proximity to the road. Many places up here have long and steep accesses. Not fun in snow and ice. But it's not an idyllic setting for quiet contemplation. Thank you for coming. We hope to see you again.

I'm a semi retired person now launching a lodging business with my husband Michael. We are renovating an old Lodge property, saving it from a long period of neglect and terrible care. Our cabin is is the first unit to be completed for a rental, and we just finished turning an old bar/restaurant into our beautiful new home.
This property is well known and loved by locals. When completed there will be 7 units: the cabin, 2 apartments and 4 single rooms. We do care, and this lovely property will be loved and cared for as it should be.
We are pretty easy going people. We respect other's privacy and expect the same.
Things we like:
Great food, gorgeous scenery, good friends, happy family and our fur family...3 dogs.
