The storybook log cabin pictured is sprawled on 20 acres near the crest of the Sierra Mountains and rents through Nov. 30 for $3,000 a week. Guys, if you’ve been charged with a lack of spontaneity, rock her routine a bit and plan a weekend getaway here. The three bedroom vacation rental makes for an attractive escape during any season, but especially during this one, when the stone fireplace gets to be fired up every night, while you focus on snuggling up and taking in those views of the neighboring pines, aspens and huge boulders.
The owners paid thoughtful attention to the house’s carbon footprint–it uses solar power and pure mountain water. And you’ll be giddy to see all the Mother Nature indoors, from the elk chandelier to the alabaster sink.
Winter vacationers, don’t be discouraged by the Nov. 30 cutoff. The home is also available during ski season, too, but only accessible then by snow mobile. The landlords also do not advertise the address to protect the privacy of guests.
So if you’re looking for an excuse to bust out the Arctic Cat, this would be it.
