Winter's Camp

Winter's Camp has been the hub of our summer vacations since the mid-80's. In 2013, the cabin was handed down a generation and given a modern refresh.

Winter’s Camp is a charming and cozy cabin tucked into the pines in the center of Twain Harte, with modern touches and access to Twain Harte Lake. It’s the perfect escape for families looking for a relaxing stay in a quaint Sierra town that time forgot (in a good way). The cabin has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and can comfortably sleep eight. There is a master bedroom on the far end with a queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom. A second bedroom features a full-size bed plus twin bunk beds – perfect for the family. The spacious living room has a vaulted ceiling and a working fireplace. There is ample space to huddle around a vintage board game, relax with a book or enjoy movie night with family and friends. Winter’s Camp has been in our family for decades. It was recently handed down a generation and given a modern refresh. All the bed and bath linens are fresh, comfortable and actually match! There is speedy wireless internet access – with a strong signal throughout the house and front deck. The living room has a 42” Sony TV in case you’ve reached pine tree and sunshine overload. The connected Roku box will let you queue up a movie from your Netflix, Amazon or Hulu account. Note: there is no standard cable TV service. The kitchen is well-stocked with the cookware and tools you need to pull together a family feast (sharp knives, solid cookware and a cocktail shaker in case of emergency). There is fresh, new table service for eight. Enjoy meals inside when the air is cool or take advantage of the huge deck out front for dining al fresco. Speaking of that deck: you’ll spend more time here than any other place during your stay. Perfect for relaxing, having a drink and coming up with grand plans that you’ll never get around to because you’re so content right where you are. Seriously, it’s a great deck. Your rental comes with lake privileges, granting you access to Twain Harte Lake for your entire group. Relax on the sandy shore, take a swim in the cool water on a hot day or make your way across the lake the “The Rock” where the big kids hang out and dare each other to throw backflips off the diving board. Don’t forget to hit the Snack Shack for soft serve ice cream. There is so much more to say, but we’ll let the pictures do some of the talking as well. The owner manages the property and lives locally if you need any help during your stay. If you have questions about Winter’s Camp, please email us.

Winter’s Camp is just two doors down from Casa Bella.

Freshly painted and ready to go for the next gen of The Twain Harte faithful. We were so sad to lose our large in-deck trees but making lemons out of lemonade with the added square footage and new seating area!

In 1989 I was 12 and my grandma convinced my friends Callie and Lisie and I that we should paint the cabin for what was surely a violation of child labor laws ; ) Ahem fast forward to 2017: We are proud to have Sean McCoy and his awesome team on board to give Winter's Camp a whole new lease on life. Can't wait to see the transformation over the next few weeks!

Great news! The big trees we sadly lost to bark beetles are getting picked up today. Finally. Onward and upward Twain Harte. #lookingahead

Today Twain Harte Lake re-opened and the Board of Directors honored my dad with a plaque on the dam naming it the "Salsig Walkway"! We are so proud of his tenacity and dedication during this past year to fast track the dam repairs and get this lake filled in time for the Summer of 2015. May we think of you each time we hear "Walk on the Bridge Please!" Thanks Dad. You are a part of this community from here to forevermore. Now let's swim!

[05/23/15]   We just had a cancelation and we are available for your last minute long weekend plans!

Dear TH Lake, I miss you already. Tell The Rock to hold tight and be strong. Please please come back next summer.
-Winter's Camp The draining of Twain Harte Lake was completed this morning, but new cracking and a sewer line are adding to the problem.

The namesake of our cabin! While going through some things today I found a book of 100 poems that was given to me 25 years ago and belonged to my great grandfather William Winter Salsig from 1929. The bookplate says it all. Words to live by. Thanks for the memories Grandpa. I sure wish we were getting sugar donuts at the Sierra Bell bakery in TH this morning.
