Great service, great food. Can be busy on weekends. Highly recommend! This shows it's in Twain Harte, but it's in Sugarpine which is closer to the cabin. Yummy avocado toast, PB & J and breakfast burrito.

Food is not very special, but in the Summer it's a very nice place to have a draft beer on the outdoor deck overlooking the river! They also have a pool table.

Grocery Stores

A very comprehensive grocery store with great service. Anything you need, and lots of vegetarian choices and organic foods. Pricier than going into Sonora, but closer to the cabin.

This is a must-see, especially if you have kiddos. It’s a preserved historic town with the streets shut down to cars. Our kids always enjoyed the jail, bowling alley and candy store where they will make some of the candy they sell.

Great ski/snowboard resort that really caters to families. They have ski/snowboard school and our girls learned here. Nice, smaller mountain, but still plenty of terrain. They rent all the equipment you would need for a day on the slopes. Cafe and cafeteria too.

Wonderful lake to kayak, fish, canoe, swim, paddle boat on. They rent everything you need for a fun day on the lake. There is also a five mile hiking trail that goes around the lake. It’s nice to hike and then halfway around, go for a swim to cool off. IMPORTANT INSIDER TIP! Please arrive to the lake early in the day, especially on the Summer weekends. We would recommend 9:30ish or 10am. Some guests have told us that when they arrive late in the day, they have had to turn around due to not being able to find parking. Also call the Pinecrest Marina ahead of time to reserve kayaks, boats, etc.

This is long day trek, but we've done it multiple times. It's a perfectly preserved Ghost Town over the Sonora Pass. It isn't accessible in the Winter as the road is closed. Stop in Bridgeport on way there or back to eat lunch or dinner. Sonora Pass is a very windy and steep road in places and takes a bit to drive it. The scenery is breathtaking though!

We highly recommend hiking in the Emigrant Wilderness. Our favorite hike is to Powell Lake which is 4.6 miles from the trailhead. Breathtaking scenery and a beautiful small lake to swim in at the halfway point.

Dodge Ridge has recently added Summer activities on the weekends. They have an AMAZING Disc Golf course, cornhole, horseshoes and hiking. Mountain Biking to come next! They also have way improved their food scene compared to the former owners. On weekends in the Summer they have live music.

Cute store with some new, plants, vintage and antiques. I always find a treasure for the cabin here! Follow her Instagram page for more info. I think she is open Weds-Saturday, but def check before going. It's right behind Twain Harte Market.

Rent at Heidi's instead of Dodge Ridge. Much more affordable

Heidi's Rentals is very closet to the cabin and you can rent snowboards, skis and snowshoes.

Call the Pinecrest Marina ahead of time to book boats, etc

On the busy Summer weekends, and some weekdays we would recommend calling the Pinecrest Marina to reserve your kayaks, boats, party boats in advance. I think you can rent days in advance.
Varaa ennen kuin lähdet

During busy times get to the Lake EARLY.

Pinecrest Lake is very popular during the Summer weekends, holidays and some weekdays. We recommend getting to the Lake by 10am to secure a parking spot. We have heard from a few guests that they got to the Lake later in the day, and had to turn around due to no parking spots available.
