Welcome to the Cozy Cabin nestled in the woods! Explore the local Snowshoe Lake just a short walk down the road. Hike Big Trees State Park. Unwind outdoors with your favorite beverage or inside on the comfy recliner. Surrounded by trees, our cabin will allow you the freedom to be on vacation and set aside the cares of city life.
*For a comprehensive overview of the cabin, where it's located, and what is provided, please read all descriptions carefully.*
Calaveras is rich in history, natural beauty, and is situated in the heart of gold country. Our cabin is around 5000 ft elevation in woody Dorrington, on an approximately half acre private lot. The large driveway is level, making it easy to get in and out during the winter. Our place was built in 1960 and has a lot of character (most of Arnold was built in the 70s and 80s). The stone hearth was built from local "candy rock" and the most of the woodwork has a custom feel. Inside are 3 spacious bedrooms (two upstairs are separated by a pocket door) and two full/quaint bathrooms. A wood burning stove along with a newly installed efficient furnace with thermostat keep the cabin toasty and warm. (We also have two portable space heaters if you are really cold). The kitchen has all modern conveniences with coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, gas stove, refrigerator, etc. Fresh mountain water flows from the tap - no need to bring your own bottled water.
During the winter months, there are plenty of opportunities for sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, and building forts in the snow.
When spring arrives, don't miss out on opportunities for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, stargazing and much more!
In late summer, the Bear Valley music festival is a lot of fun with nearly two weeks of live music spanning several genres.
If you are a wine connoisseur, there are plenty of tasting rooms in Murphys, as well as a grape stomping festival in the fall. If you are a fan of beer, we have a growler you can bring to Snowshoe Brewing Co for a refill of one of their local brews.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Even though we don't live here full time, we are available by phone, text or email. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or issues!
For those that enjoy cooking, we have a full stainless steel cookware set of pots and pans in the kitchen.
If it interests you, there is a "Great Books" of western civilization 50 book set in the house - Plato to 20th century writers. We also have a variety of children's books, games and puzzles.
*Note: We are nearly 2.5 hours away from Yosemite, so even though it looks close geographically, highway access takes time.*
FYI: The two bedrooms upstairs are fairly large but only separated by a pocket door (and are not separated by a hallway). Bring comfy slippers as the floors can be cool in the early morning hours.
Also the beds are freshly made and ready for a cozy night's rest. Hand towels in the bathrooms and the kitchen are provided. However, we do ask that you provide your own bath and beach towels.
Winter time - we have a FLAT driveway which is VERY EASY! During the snowy months, we have an on call snow removal service for the driveway. In the case there is a good amount of snow, we provide a free snow removal service!
We love our cabin and hope you will too! Please let us know right away if something breaks, stains or ceases working. It allows us to maintain and improve the cabin for all to enjoy!
Shoes off policy - it's one way we relax and keep our house clean. (slippers are great to bring too)
Power recliner is for adults only - kids allowed if a grown up is in it with them.
