There is something magical about this cabin that keeps people coming back. Sit inside by the fire at night, lay on the large balcony under the trees during the day and sit by the private year round stream or go out on a different adventure every day. Close to boating, water and snow skiing, wine tasting, historic gold mining towns, Apple Hill, the new Red Hawk Casino, and so much more:
Other activities include panning for gold in the original location where gold was discovered resulting in the 1849 gold rush. Or head to Apple Hill, as featured in Sunset magazine, where you can visit one of the many ranches along the Farm Trails offering sweet corn, vine ripe tomatoes, fresh green beans, chestnuts, pumpkins, and colorful bouquets and much more (type of harvest available depends on the season during your stay). Many farms have Bake shops, pony rides, and various other activities. Don’t miss stopping at the Fudge Factory!
