During January through March we will be renting by month or week. Message us. ***Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood 2 miles from Twain Harte. Highway 108 is 5 minutes away.

We have over 200 reviews from this and other listings. The HOUSE: Our 2800 sf home is on two levels. All bedrooms, 1.5 baths, hot tub, and laundry room are on the bottom level. The top floor, the main floor, is a huge great room. There is a .5 bath, library area with two and fireplace, TV area, dining area, kitchen, and mudroom. Just outside is a 635 sf deck which is very nice spring through fall. It has a fully retractable awning over the main section of the deck which has a southern exposure. You can go outside and relax, do your yoga, or read- May through October. Solar panels are on the roof. We eat mostly organic foods. Feel free to use what is in our pantry to compliment your meals. Bring your bikes so you can ride the nearby RR grade turned into a riding path (non motorized.) Just a short 200 foot, somewhat heart pounding, elevation gain from the house will bring you to the Twain Harte ditch system. This is a system of waterways (our local drinking water) which has running/biking trails right next to it. You can easily get a five mile run out in the woods right from our home. Pinecrest Lake is just a beautiful mountain lake just 25 minutes up Highway 108. This little hamlet has everything you need for a day in the sun: coffee, ice cream, a restaurant, store, library, art gallery, and snack shack. It also has a marina and you can rent paddle boards at Heidi's just before entering Pinecrest Road.
Our home has two floors. From the street you will descend nine steps to our main floor. Then 12 more steps down to the bottom floor where all the bedrooms are located. We have a code lock for the door. You will have access to all rooms in the listing.

We are at an elevation of 4000'. Please plan accordingly if planning winter travel. You will minimally need an AWD or 4WD if the weather is extreme. Always check Caltrans for highway 108. Additionally, the passes close during the winter. These normal closures are much higher in elevation that the local snow play areas and Dodge Ridge Ski Area.
No BBQs. Fire safe practices during summer/winter. No smoking in home, on decks, or property. If you feel the need to smoke, please go to the court and smoke in the court. Extinguish completely.
We are a 'getting ready to retire' couple. Our children are grown so we like to travel. Liz still works full time as a teacher. Terry is a retired meat cutter now working his own business as a small business bookkeeper and tax preparer. We both enjoy good health and engage in a number of outdoor activities: running, skiing, snowshoeing, backpacking, as well as leisurely pursuits such as gardening, music, cooking and sharing meals, and reading.
