Why Gail DeLano chose Twain Harte

My grandfather built this cabin in 1940 for his family. After my father died, my mother continued to vacation at Twain Harte with the four kids in my family. Currently, my brother and I own the property, and have improved it throughout the years - new roof, foundations, siding, interior walls, new electrical, new plumbing and tankless water heater, log woodwork, new deck, and a completely remodeled upstairs bath. The cabin is very updated with a vintage feel.

What makes this cabin unique

Large flat property with parking for 10+ cars...many lots in Twain Harte are smaller with little parking. Great place for kids to safely place away from the street. Cabin sits among many tall pine trees but is 1/3 mile from the little town of Twain Harte, and 2/3 mile from Twain Harte Lake

Magical Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the planning stages of the trip, Gail was super communicative and helpful in planning our stay. She describes the cabin perfectly on VRBO. Much emphasize is needed that the lot itself was spectacular. It was huge, with plenty of flat space for our kids to play. The location is also walking distance to the cutest little downtown where there are several restaurants, ice cream shop and even live music on Saturday night (at least night we were there). Though the beds and bedding are comfortable, the vacation rental is definitely a cabin so if you are looking to have a luxurious kitchen and/or hotel like flooring and temperature controlled rooms, you may want to look elsewhere. I know my family and friends will be back because our kids had a fantastic time while at the rental and at our daily trips to the lake. The fee to go to the lake daily is $8 per person and is worth every dime. Just know there is no food/alcohol/coolers allowed. What you do get to experience though is a super family friendly environment with several lifeguards and a perfectly sized lake where one can swim from one end to the other; and there are even water slides, diving boards and a play structure. The deck is simply the very best one I have ever stayed at ever! It is huge and several hours time seemed to slip away as we enjoyed BBQ'ing and nature (several deer sightings during our stay). All in all, this place reminds me of a slower paced state like Idaho, where you are immune to the hustle and bustle of California making it an incredible getaway with minimal driving given it's accessibility from both the Bay Area and Sacramento area.

A perfect cabin to enjoy with friends and family. Is like coming home

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect vacation Cabin for 4 old buddies and their wives who used to camp and climb together almost 40 years ago.

What sold us was the beautiful large deck in front of the cabin which nestled among the fir trees. We were planning to just chill and catch up with our lives journey, through children and grand children and the deck and the surroundings was a perfect place.

It definitely is like coming home for us. The decor is of years past but it's charming for a cabin. Most importantly the beds were comfortable.

The town was a 5 minute walk from the house so we walked to the restaurants and enjoyed the mini golf tournament at the Mini Golf Course.

For $6.00 a day we got to spend a whole day at a private Twain Harte lake which is only a 5 minute drive from the house.

Gail was a very accommodating Host and made our stay one of the most memorable one. We will definitely come back to stay.

Cozy Twain Harte Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this cozy cabin with our two adult daughters and 3 teen grandchildren. The cabin has been in the owner's (Gail) family since about 1940 which made it all the more special. You can tell they have made many upgrades over the years. It has a wonderful large deck with a great gas barbeque. My daughters and I loved lounging on the deck and reading some good books. Gail is very nice and easy to get in contact with. Our family very much enjoyed our stay in this cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy, for also being easy to communicate with and being flexible. I had to come up right after your stay and appreciated the condition you left it in. The deck is really special; I find I can spend hours out there lounging and enjoying the relaxation of Twain Harte. Please keep in touch; would love to host your group again.

Making this an annual trip

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days in this small quite town. The homey cabin was just what our family needed. From morning coffee on the deck laughing with family to scary movies in living room at night, to spending all day swimming at the private lake where you can enjoy giant ice cream sundays and then ending the day with a nice bbq on the gas grill and playing scrabble with the kids. This place makes you want to sell all your procession and live here all year round. Can’t wait to book another stay.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed Twain Harte at it's best --a true getaway where it's easy to slow everything down and really RELAX. Great to see your pictures of playing games on the deck to swimming and fishing at the lake. I appreciate how you left the cabin and please, do join us next year -- we'd be delighted to have you as guests again.

Nice Place for a big family

  • 4 of 5

Our stay included a family of four couples and a baby. The rooms were all great and the out side deck was wonderful. There were games to play and a really nice barbeque. We walked to down town for a nice dinner one night and it was just a short drive to Pinecrest Lake. It was a great family time and we will stay here again.
