This cabin was a labor of love beginning with a dream of the family patriarch: Richard Barham. Mr. Barnham searched for years for the perfect piece of property to build his mountain oasis and chose this location because it is so close to charming downtown Twain Harte and just below the snow line. It was built by the Barham family over five years and thousands of hours. Mr. Barnham went to the railyards to pick up pallets that he used for the wood on the walls. He split the wood pieces, routed each edge, and then put dowel holes in each. If you look closely at the walls, you will see that many of the pieces match exactly! Constructing these was like utting together a jigsaw puzzle. All the light fixtures and wrought iron work were also designed and built by Richard Barnham to make this home a true "jewel in the mountains".

This property is in a great location (very quiet) and the cabin was beautiful. We loved the large deck area. My complaints would be the showerheads were so low we had to bend down to get our heads under the water and some of the utensils needed updating in the kitchen because they were rusting and unusable. I would consider staying here again but I didn't like the $100 cleaning fee.

Wouldn't want to go again to either of this year's houses, because they're too far from the lake. I'm 80 and Carl is 84, and it wasn't possible for him to walk that distance over to the lake. He was disappointed, because he likes to walk back and forth once or twice a day.. In the 2nd house, our kids and grandkids were back and forth all day long, of course, and they'd also much appreciate being closer. The rest of our vacation was fine, as it always is at Twain Harte!

Cabin had personal clothing in drawers and closets - did not feel comfortable taking my clothes out of suitcase. Also, freezer was full of food - was not available for our use. I prefer to rent houses that do not have other people's personal items.
