NOTE FROM THL as of 8/11/2020: THL will close after Labor Day Weekend, 9/7/2020. I am sorry for any inconvenience; I do not have any control over their decisions. We do not offer refunds for THL decisions. I will keep you all updated as they have changed their mind several times. Pinecrest & Beardsley Lakes is the alternative for lake-goers. Their info can be found on our personal site, please inquire for link.

Please, read through our whole AirBnB listing. We have listed our amenities & what we supply + answered the most frequently asked questions.

Follow us on Instagram @peaceofyourhartevacay from there you will find our personal site & other social media outlets to follow us on.

COVID-19 INFO:
We understand the concerns & worries of sanitation and social distancing during this time. Please know that our cabins are sanitized after each guest departs, and prior to your arrival. We use Tilex and bleach products along with other disinfectant products.
*All of our sheets & towels are white on purpose so that we can bleach them after each guests' departure.
*We will only prepare the cottage for the exact number of guests you have in your reservation.
*Due to heavier laundry expense and time there will be one towel set per guest: 1 Bath Towel, 1 Hand Towel, 1 Washcloth. If you need more, there will be linen fee.
*We have hand sanitizers, disinfectant spray and cleaners at all of our cabins, so you can wipe down areas during your stay.
*It is now mandatory to wear masks while out and about. Masks will be made available upon request if you do not have one of your own.
*We ask that you do all of your grocery shopping in your own hometown. Stores are open here, but stock is way down & there are purchasing limits on certain items; such as, water, toilet paper and other essential goods. Since stores are changing their rules daily, I can't keep up with each stores' rules; therefore come prepared with food and your favorite and needed items.
*For a small fee, I will grocery shop for you so you can simply arrive, and the fridge will be stocked for your visit. Provide me a list and I'll do the rest.
*Restaurants are now severing their patrons outdoors, and offering pickup, as well.
*There will be Toilet Paper and a roll of paper towels in the cabin, but depending on how long you plan on staying you should bring a few rolls depending on your own daily use.

Please inquire about our personal website for a lot of local information about where to explore, dine, and create adventures. We provide links to area attractions, restaurants, hiking information, and so much more. Tabs include all of our included services & amenities + our extra services in more detail.
We do not, and will not, book outside of AirBnB. The site is for informational purposes, only. Every "booking" link will guide you directly back to AirBnB to reserve the cabin(s) of your choice.

Please note that Twain Harte Lake reopened on June 24, 2020. They have changed everything for entering for Members and Guests. There is now an online reservations system, and due to social distancing standards they have now mapped out their beach areas and the Rock/Dam area. Honestly, it has been very difficult to get reservations. The site crashed, initially, and reservations will be prioritized for Members. I can attempt a reservation for a day or two during your stay, but I cannot guarantee a reservation will be granted. You may also attempt to walk-in. I still need to email your name to the lake's office along with the exact number of people in your group. I would recommend trying to walk-in toward the afternoon, as each confirmed reservation begins at 9:00am, and people will be leaving in the afternoon opening up spaces on the beach and over at the rock/dam area. We will not refund due to THL's decision to change their entrance rules due to COVID-19. It is completely out of my control.
Pinecrest Lake and Beardsley Lake have reopened with restrictions, but they do not require reservations, their beach and picnic area is larger and pets are welcome at Pinecrest & Beardsley Lakes.

Upon arriving, you'll be welcomed with cold water & snacks (VEGAN?! Please, let me know & your snacks will be customized!)! Your pets will want their treats, too, so please inform us if you're traveling with your pet(s)!
We do our best to ensure you are in a comfortable cabin, and all of your needs are met.

***Twain Harte Lake Access ON & OFF Season.
SUMMER SEASON: Twain Harte Lake is now deducting for all guest entry from my own personal tickets. All reservations are chosen on a lottery basis. The more my tickets have been used, the less chance folks will be granted confirmed reservations. Please inquire about the new COVID-19 GUIDELINES & instructions to obtain access into the lake.
OFF SEASON: As of 8/11/2020 THL's announcement they will close after 9/7/2020 for Off Season entry. If this changes I will update.

*Location, comfort & fun! With AC during the Summer & a Wood Burner for the Winter (wood provided!)!
*Our cozy 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage with your own private deck off of the kitchen is ideal for a Romantic Getaway, a small family of 4 to 5 (2 adults & 2-3 children), or 2 couples.

We will pick up basics such as milk, eggs, cereal, bread, and other such items so that when you arrive you do not have to run to the store for your 1st night's dinner, or your 1st morning's breakfast, especially if arriving later at night. Please contact me for more details.
*ROMANTIC GETAWAY! We will assist you with planning a romantic arrival. We will work with you so that your romantic getaway is extra special and awaiting your special someone. Please contact me for details.

NEW ~ PLEASE READ: PG&E PLANNED POWER OUTAGE INFO + MORE :

FIRST: Know that our cabins are completely set up for power outages. More on that below.

In the mountains there are certain instances that occur without warning or notice and are completely out of my control. If I know in advance that something is going to be affecting our community during your visit, I will notify you as soon as I find out. If I know or feel that travel during your visit will be impossible or not safe, I will contact you and AirBnB before you are due to arrive to cancel your reservation for a full refund.

If travel is safe, but we might be experiencing one of these new PG&E planned outages for fire prevention, I will notify you, and leave the decision up to you as to whether you’d still like to make your visit. If you do decide you’d rather reschedule your visit, you may do so directly through your reservation page. Or, if you must have power, I will contact AirBnB so you are fully refunded due to the planned power outage.
But, if you do decide you would still like to enjoy your getaway, please read below to view how our cabins are set up for power outages and other conditions.
If an outage occurs during your visit, I have not control over PG&E's decisions, but the cottage is supplied for power outages.

Our cabins are fully equipped for power outages. You will have hot water. Our cabins are stocked with multiple lanterns and battery light switches (plus extra batteries), our cooktop is gas, and we use our BBQs to cook, as well. For heat we provide wood for the fireplace, games for your enjoyment and most restaurants + Black Oak Casino all have generators, so dining out is another option. If power goes out, people enjoy their days exploring, hiking, taking the kids to Railtown or cave exploring, or hanging out at our local lakes.
*If it is snowing: ski, snowboard, sled, ice skate at Long Barn Ice Rink.
*Snowing or not: Antique shop, wine taste, take a day trip to Yosemite (weather & time of year permitting), Hetch Hetchy hiking is gorgeous, too!
Eproson Park in downtown Twain Harte is fun for kids, Twain Harte Golf Club’s 9 hole course is fun, as is Twain Harte Mini Golf Course (time of year permitting).
There really is so much to do outside during the day that people do not go bored!
Or bring your books/Kindle, snuggle up with one of our throws, or lounge on the deck with your favorite libation.
At night, play games by lantern light.
Or, head to the Black Oak Casino for some gambling. Black Oak Casino houses a full bowling alley and arcade for kids of all ages.
I do have a personal site where I have provided & linked TONS of local areas to explore, dine and ideas for creating new memories, anytime of the year, under any safe circumstance.
Sonora also has a 10 screen movie theater.
Sonora Repertory Theatre puts on amazing plays/musicals that our guests have thoroughly enjoyed.
All of this info is listed on our personal site, so please, contact me at any time for further information. I want you to enjoy your visit to Twain Harte and Tuolumne County while you’re our guest at Peace of Your Harte Cabins!
