About The Owner

I have been coming to Twain Harte since I was a child with my parents and brothers, then when I had children every summer I would bring them up to Twain Harte to enjoy swimming, hiking, bingo at the lake, movies in the redwoods, etc. After 40 years I finally was able to purchase a home in Twain Harte. Now every year we have a family reunion at The Roost and we love to celebrate birthdays and holidays here too. Hopefully this cabin will be passed down from generation to generation for years of memories.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Twain Harte

This property has been fully renovated and has top of line furnishing (Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, Restoration Hardware, etc). Perfect for holiday dinners since we have two ovens. The massive deck is great for entertaining and enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or just soaking up the sun on one of our lounge chairs. Kids will not be bored as there is a basketball hoop, darts, numerous board games, bumper pool etc. Adults have everything from numerous televisions, blue ray/DVD player, Wifi, poker table, antique bar, popcorn cart, etc.

What makes this house unique

Our cabin has membership to two private lakes. We are not responsible for lake closures. Lakes are typically open from the end of May until the beginning of September. We are conveniently located, within walking distance to downtown, Twain Harte Lake, pee wee golf, local swimming pool, skate park, numerous restaurants, golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, park, grocery store, etc. We are only a five minute drive to Black Oak Casino for gambling, bowling, dining, dancing and restaurants. There are numerous wineries and lakes in the area. Dodge Ridge is close for your skiing needs and Leland High Sierra snowplay is a short drive up the hill. During the winter you are a 5 minutes drive to the ice skating rink. We are approximately an hour and fifteen minutes from Yosemite. There are many local places of interest to visit like Railtown 1897, Columbia State Park, Carson Hill, Sierra Glen Ranch (pick summer fruits or cut down a Christmas Tree), Chicken Ranch Bingo and Casino and more. Many lakes for water skiing, tubing and fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is beautiful.It was very clean,very comfortable,great for the kids & the adults.It felt very cozy,not over the top so you were stressed over kids sitting on the couch.We had kids from 9-13 & they loved it.We felt comfortable sleeping with the windows open (which I normally don't feel comfortable doing in a cabin),great location-we walked many times into town & getting places was very easy.Not far from Pinecrest.Tammy is so great to talk to & give you any info you need.I actually feel like I have made a new friend.We had another cabin booked & found out a week before that it had been double booked.Tammy saved us with her rental & was very patient with me (I'm still learning how these rental sites work),if we had any problems she was quick to help. I highly recommend renting The Roost,I'm also referring my friends to the cabin.Thanks again Tammy! We give the cabin another 5 Star review.

Lovely, comfortable and well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to beautiful Twain Harte. Tammy is a gracious host, she called on the 2nd day of our stay to see if we needed anything. Her home is roomy, clean and comfortable; the kitchen has every appliance or utensil you could need, plus a cabinet full of spices. The booklet of local restaurants and things to do was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay in the Roost again! Thank you Tammy.

Loved the Roost!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Twain Harte since I was a little girl and now I was able to bring my 3 month old daughter. My family has a cabin up the street so we wanted to rent a place close to allow us some privacy with our little one. We were so impressed with the roost. The cabin is beautifully decorated and feels like home from the moment you walk in. The large open living room, kitchen and dining table is perfect for gathering. The bedrooms are so comfortable and decorated so clean and quaint. The downstairs bedroom and game room would allow privacy if you stayed with multiple couples or a family. All and all, I was so impressed with the decor, cleanliness and convenience of this cabin. It is in walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops. We will definitely be back and hope to have more memories at the roost!

Cozy and inviting. Everything we wanted and more.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Tammy was super responsive. She gave us a code to the door and for some reason it did not work. Called her at 10pm and she picked up the phone right away and was so nice and courteous. She let us in with a push of a button on her phone and even helped us turn on the heater with her phone. The house was exactly how she describe it and more. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Andy, We are so happy you enjoyed our cabin. Glad the codes worked the rest of your trip. We never had that problem before. Our quests can contract us day or night. You should try coming up in the summer to enjoy the private lake. Your welcome back anytime.

Come home to the Roost!

  • 5 of 5

This is honestly one of the best home rentals we have encountered. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you would need, there are plenty of games and movies to get you through a winter weekend, loads of blankets to keep you cozy, near enough to the shops in Twain Harte to walk but never any traffic noise (inside at least), and plenty of space for a family. The owner Tammy was very responsive to a minor issue and had it resolved within an hour. Stop looking and rent this place, it's fantastic. Thanks, Tammy!
