Woodsy Retreat: Swim Pinecrest/Ski Dodge! *WIFI*

Family-friendly cabin in Long Barn
The Woodsy Retreat is tucked away amongst the pines in the High Sierra Mountains. 5 minutes away from PINECREST LAKE & DODGE RIDGE SKI. This 950 sq ft little gem boasts a modern flare to rustic living. 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath. Knotty Pine throughout. Large deck with outdoor sitting and Propane BBQ. The cabin lights up nightly for outdoor entertaining. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. All beds have freshly washed luxury sheets, memory foam pillows down comforters.

Keith and I enjoy communicating with our guests. We are here for you by phone, text or email if you should have any questions before, during or after your stay.

**Additional Information about the cabin**

Guests will have access to the entire cabin except for two storage closet‘s located in the hall.


Winter snow months we strongly encourage you to carry chains at all time. Chain requirements will be enforced in a snow storm. 4 wheel drive recommended

Currently, Verizon is the only cell carrier that works in that area. We encourage you to print instructions before you head up to the property. Also another way to get accurate directions to the cabin is the put the address in maps app on your phone before you start your trip. Once you lose reception in the city of Longbarn the map app will still be able to bring you right to the property without reception. If arriving at night our cabin is completely lit up with white Christmas lights to help show your way.

Due to the rural location of our community Hughesnet satellite Internet is the only carrier available. We feel grateful that we can extend this service to you, as most cabins in our area do not have a line of sight for the satellite. Keep in mind that satellite Internet is good for surfing the Internet, emails and light social media. Streaming is not supported.

We do have a landline available at the cabin to utilize for local calls.

In the winter months, we have provided two shovels at the property one. If you are at the property during a snowstorm you would utilize the shovel to shovel off the deck. We have also provided 1 bucket of Ice melt to help keep the deck clear of ice. Once the deck is shoveled you would sprinkle the Ice melt on the deck. This will help with keeping the stairs and deck clear. You could also purchase more Ice melt at Ace Hardware in Twain Harte.

We have a long paved driveway that you could park three average sized vehicles on. In the winter months if it is snowing you will be required to park on the driveway and not the road. This is to ensure that the snowplow vehicles are able to plow the road daily around 3 PM. This might require shoveling snow on driveway to access a parking spot. We want to make sure you don't receive a hefty ticket from city.

The outdoor patio furniture is put away for the winter months. December- April the outdoor cushions, umbrella and fire pit chairs are available upon request as long as the guests return them to the basement for the winter months.

Please note we do not provide the following: laundry detergent, extra trash bags, firewood, propane for BBQ. There is a propane tank, however we do not monitor the propane usage.

Great for a quick family trip to the snow
We had a great time at Woodsy Retreat playing in the snow just outside and sledding nearby. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed spending the evening warmed by the fire. Upon leaving we accidentally left a bag behind. Our hosts immediately let us know and helped us retrieve it. Thanks for your assistance! This was our first trip to the area and we'd love to come back and stay again.

Great Getaway
We had a great time at the Woodsy Retreat!! Very close to Pinecrest, quaint neighborhood, and everything we were looking for in a cabin. The patio area was a lot of fun too. We brought the dogs, and they had a great time too. 5-star host and property, hands down!

5/5 Excellent

This was a great place to stay! Spacious, peaceful, and included the amenities everyone needs.

4/5 Good

Remote retreat during Covid
Being here during the current crisis impacts this review. This rather remote but beautiful place. Very few restaurants were open so eating out required research. There was no notebook outlining things to do and places to eat. Grocery stores were geared to campers. No instructions on TV use. We aren’t familiar with Roku or use of DVD/Blue Ray. Cabin was charming and peaceful.
