The SpaceWelcome to "The Cabin," as our family calls our beautiful home on the south fork of the American River. Sunny decks on every level of this three story home overlook the river, Lover's Leap, and are surrounded with beautiful pine and cedar trees. You can actually sit and watch climbers ascend and descend Lover's Leap and the surrounding mountains. A stairway leads you from our lower deck down to the shores of the river where there is a great swimming hole where people come from all over to spend a day in the sun.
The cabin is within walking distance to Lover's Leap and the Strawberry Lodge and is just minutes by car to the Desolation Wilderness/National Forest with hundreds of miles of hiking trails, rivers, Horsetail Falls, and pristine lakes. Sierra at Tahoe ski resort is 10 minutes away and a 20 minute breathtaking scenic drive over the Sierras brings you to South Lake Tahoe and its casinos, Heavenly Valley, many golf courses, restaurants and beautiful, incomparable lake.
Beautifully and comfortably furnished with all that you will need for a day or a month, including linens and towels. Newly remodeled kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and everything you need to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal (food and chef not included).
3 bedrooms plus additional sleeping loft sleeps 9 comfortably. 2.5 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, natural oak floors, open beamed ceilings.
Living room with its flagstone fireplace has windows overlooking the river and Lover's Leap and its adjoining dining area has a country pine table that extends to seat 12--enough to accommodate a family gathering.
The loft has a double and two single beds, main floor bedroom has a queen bed, master ensuite bedroom has a queen bed, fireplace and wet bar.
Whether you're seeking a quiet getaway or a fun-filled adventure, you will find what you're looking for at The Cabin.
