This secluded cabin is heaven for (almost) everyone...
It will be heaven for you and your significant other if you want to get away from it all (incl. the kids - don't forget grandma's long-standing offer ;- ). Spend some quality time together. Go hiking in woodsy Mi-Wuk or in the Emigrant Wilderness - the number of trails is unlimited. Explore Sonora's colorful Farmer's Market. Go wine-tasting in Murphys. Visit Yosemite, which is only 1.5 hours away, but spend the night away from the crowds. Or just relax at your new-found home which with its abundance of light and incredible views over cedar and pine trees just exudes peace and tranquility. You really can't find a more romantic getaway!
The cabin can also be heaven for you and your kids. You can go swimming at Pinecrest Lake (free, no membership required), river rafting, skiing at Dodge Ridge, sledding, or ice skating in nearby Long Barn. And there is fast and reliable WiFi, cable TV and a DVD player for when you come home after an activity-packed day and just want to chill.
It can be your own personal retreat if you feel the need to unwind and decompress. When was the last time you were alone? Go hiking, read a book, listen to music and your own thoughts - experience the power of solitude and come home to your family entirely refreshed.
The cabin is definitely for everyone in San Francisco who wants to escape the eternal summer fog, see some blue skies instead of layers and layers of grey clouds, and soak up the rejuvenating sun. Yes, there is a real California out there - and it's less than three hours from the city and the trip is shorter and definitely more relaxing than driving to Lake Tahoe.
A note of warning though before you get too carried away and start daydreaming about booking a weekend in this little piece of paradise. You may not want to bring your teenaged children! Mi-Wuk is not South Tahoe, Sonora is not San Francisco. Our son loved coming with us to this area until he was 16 when all of a sudden computer games and Facebook became all-consuming and "nature" was just a big bore. I give him 10 years until he realizes the foolishness of his ways but right now he has different priorities. And the same may be true for your kids...
What our son is missing is a two-floor cabin that with its 1300 sq. ft. feels cozy yet spacious. The main floor has cathedral ceilings, a kitchen that is stocked with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal, a dining area seating six and a bathroom with shower and tub. There is a washer and dryer and we provide you with plenty of linen and towels.
In the open living room you can enjoy the cozy comfort of a wood-burning stove (wood provided). There are two sofas which turn into comfortable beds. A sliding door leads out to a large wrap-around deck where you can always find a sunny spot and enjoy the sunset over a glass of a local wine.
A queen-size bed is in the spacious loft. Wake up to the chirping birds or the gentle sounds of the stream running through the property. This really is heaven and you are more than welcome!+ More
