Our mission at Twain Harte Cabin Rentals is to provide exceptional service and high quality lodging, so that you can make spectacular memories with your family.

This vacation rental cabin in Twain Harte, CA has been in our family for generations & we’ve been renting for over a decade. It was one of the first homes built in the Twain Harte area, and we've worked to preserve the knotty pine and the traditional style elements that have always made it feel like a warm, rustic welcome to the California Gold Country, even as we've kept the kitchen appliances, furniture, and decorations updated for modern tastes and needs.


This cabin has four bedrooms, along with a queen-size pull out sofa in the living room for adventurous children and unexpected guests. Room One, which is at the front of the cabin, has one queen bed; Room Two offers two twin beds and is located in the back of the cabin. Room Three is a loft bedroom that's ideal for kids, boasting two twin beds, a small TV, and access through a steep ladder that keeps the loft feeling like a secret hideaway. Keep watch on your kids in Room Four, which includes one queen bed, a small TV, the ladder to the loft, and its own door to the side deck. Note: This room is used to access the loft, so you lose a bit of privacy.

Our Twain Harte lodging comfortably fits eight to ten people; however, we've rented it out for Boy Scout, Cub Scout, and Girl Scout camp-outs, family reunions, wedding parties, church groups, and retreats. These groups have covered the driveway and deck with tents and filled the cozy, generously sized living room with people in sleeping bags, so there's no need to be afraid that your party can't stay comfortably in this cabin even if you're bringing plenty of people along.

We provide blankets and pillows, along with the first roll of toilet paper and paper towels. There are no complimentary sheets, pillow cases, towels, shampoo/conditioner, or other personal hygiene products, leaving plenty of room for your favorite soaps, shampoos, and a set of sheets that you can customize for your own comfort.


There are two full bathrooms in this spacious vacation rental, one of which is accessible from the house. The second bathroom is in the basement, which requires going outside and under the deck. Both bathrooms have a toilet, shower, and sink, and the basement bathroom has a complimentary washer and dryer, though neither bathroom is equipped with a bathtub. The tankless water heater gives you endless hot water for your showers, but please try to keep your showers short, so that you can help your temporary neighbors in Tuolumne County fight California's current drought.


The living room features a stereo system for your music, and a 47-inch big screen HD TV with a DVD player, VCR, and Comcast cable to keep you up to date on all your favorite shows. You'll also have access to free, high speed Comcast Wi-Fi throughout the house. The cabin's land line offers unlimited free calling to local numbers and businesses; for long distance or toll calls, you'll have to use your cell phone.

The paved driveway has plenty of space for all the vehicles you'll bring, whether you drive to Twain Harte in multiple cars or SUVs or take your trailer, a short RV, or a boat on vacation with you.

There is no air-conditioning installed We have two ceiling fans in the living room and a selection of portable fans for the rest of the house.


The kitchen is fully equipped with all the basic cooking utensils, silverware, plates, cups, toaster, coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave oven, blender, garbage disposal, high chair, and soap you'll need. Just bring your own food to cook on the gas stove, your own coffee, tea, or cocoa to brew before going out for the day or staying in for a long, luxurious evening, or some charcoal and fluid for the charcoal BBQ waiting out on the spacious deck.

There is no dishwasher, but if you're washing up your daily dishes at the sink when dusk falls, you may notice that some of the local deer, birds, and squirrels are coming out just behind the deck to pay you a visit. If you give them some cracked corn and peanuts, you may be able to charm them into coming by every evening to liven up your dishwashing routine!


Check-in is done via email. Once your reservation has been confirmed, we'll email a welcome packet that includes information about making your stay in Twain Harte as fun and exciting as it can be!

Check-in is at 3:00pm. Check-out is at 11:00am. If you arrive early or need to check out later, please ask about our extended check-in and check-out options.

Owner's reply: I am utterly confused by this review. This guest rented the cabin almost two years ago & 2 years later they decide to write a review? This group never said anything at all about a problem at the cabin pre-stay or post-stay. If there was an issue, we would have fixed it ASAP, or put the group in another cabin. We take great pride in our cabin & you can see that by the tons of 5 star reviews we have received over the past 10 years we’ve been renting... To address the things she said: 1. Yes you do have to go outside & into the basement to access the second bathroom & shower. That is clearly stated in our listing. So why make a big deal about it? 2. The carpets were just steam cleaned a month before she arrived; she was the first person to stay in the cabin with the newly cleaned carpets. 3. Our mattresses do have specialty pads to protect them from stains, “accidents” & bed bugs. Most people are extremely happy that we put that level of detail into our cabin. 4. We do not have a dishwasher. This was one of the first cabins built in Twain Harte & the builder did not put in a dishwasher. Clearly stated on the listing. 5. Putting a hidden camera inside the bathroom is just sick. 6. Mouse droppings in the kitchen or in any other place inside is another lie. We have never seen a rodent in the cabin or any droppings the entire time we have owned this cabin. But to be on the safe side, for our guests, we have subscribed to a monthly pest control & tree spraying service for the past 21 years. I called them just to be sure and they said they have never seen rodent droppings EVER at our cabin. I have much better things to do then stalk you. I live 3 hours away. 7. I have much better things to do then stalk you. I live 3 hours away. The entire check in & check out process is automated. I am never at the cabin while a guest is their & I defiantly wasn’t at the cabin while they were their. We try our best to provide a great experience in our cozy & rustic cabin. I’m not sure what happened to you personally during the past two years that you decided to write these defamatory comments about our company, but PLEASE do not make up lies about us or the facility.
