Built out of brick, our cabin is on Hilton Creek for your enjoyment of all four seasons. Surrounded by pure rushing water and a quaking aspen glade, this Eastern Sierra location borders on magical. See for yourself, our photos show just a glimpse!
Old cabins have an authentic feel that is tough to replicate. Seldom will you find one that is built right on the edge of a rushing creek-bed in the High Sierra. Here it is!
Each season is different but summer and fall are guest favorites. Please note that during the winter (and most of spring) Yosemite National Park cannot be accessed easily from the cabin because Tioga Pass (HWY 120) is closed.
The cabin is on the small side but perfect for two, well behaved children can be accommodated but no pets please. We love pets, but some of our eldest family members have pet allergies and use this cabin too.
The bed is a double (slightly smaller than queen sized), the bathroom has a shower, and the kitchen is combined into the living room. Cable TV and wifi are available, sometimes the creek makes so much noise it is hard to hear the TV! During the colder times of year we have a wonderful wood burning stove and plenty of firewood. If you don't know how to build a fire, let us know, my wife and I are pro's.
Some folks are concerned that the cabin is isolated in the middle of nowhere and that access is difficult. We live on the property, have a main house and this rental cabin in back. Our road is paved, parking is paved and its a short 25 foot walk to the front door. In the winter we will remove snow to make your life easier. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet. Although the buildings are close together the creek creates an ambiance of privacy and drowns out all sounds, this cabin faces the creek and forest -- you may as well be deep in the wilderness.
Domestic water is piped in straight from the creek. It's filtered but guests should drink bottled water, we'll start you off with a gallon. Creek water is perfect for showering, cooking, brushing teeth, etc. You'll notice the difference.
*New for 2018 we just have had fiber optic cable internet installed to our house and backyard cabin. For those that are interested in working remotely in this beautiful setting consider this: with speeds up to 100 times faster than DSL or cable, our gigabit fiber-to-the-premises makes the Internet feel like it's right next to you, on your own private network. Upload and download speeds are among the highest in the state.

For those looking to make their visit to the Sierra a bit more adventurous we have a few options for guided activity. (subject to availability, equipment and gear provided) Curently offering: Mountain bike trail rides - starting at $80/person, Learn to ride a dirt bike - starting at $140/person, and dirt bike excursions - starting at $160/person.

Please care for our old cabin as if it were yours and leave it in the clean condition that we have provided for you. It truly is a special place and we want to make it available for guests for many years to come. (with your help of course!)
To us clean condition means doing your dishes, tidying up, and running the vacuum cleaner if needed. Don't worry about doing laundry, taking out the trash, or emptying ashes.
