We absolutely love Highway 4 East of highway 49 ;). The first place I ever went camping was a place called “Boards Crossing” and it’s probably why we moved to the forest. Murphy’s, Arnold, Calaveras Big Trees, Lake Alpine,…all magnificent.
Well we just found the perfect place to stay to check out all of those places or to simply just get away from it all, it’s an Airbnb called “Station Two”- https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/3606256
” Welcome to our cozy, vintage-style cabin. It is located in the Snowshoe Springs community in Dorrington, with access to a private lake. Our cabin is a wonderful place to enjoy snow in the winter around the fire, or to relax out on the deck in summer “.
” Our cabin is comfortable and inviting, with beautiful views of the forest. We are located very close to Big Trees State Park (approx. 5 minute drive), and walking distance to Snowshoe Springs Lake. It’s a wonderful place to unplug, since there is poor cell service and no wi-fi or internet
The cabin is approximately 100 miles and 2.5 hours from the main visitor’s center at Yosemite National Park.
The cabin itself is stylish, with an eye towards mid-century A-frame homes. Our well-equipped kitchen includes lots of excellent tools and a refurbished Wedgewood stove “.
” Outside, you will find a large, comfortable deck with a dining area, charcoal grill, and comfortable lounge seating. During the summer, bistro lights keep it bright well into the night “.
” In the winter, the wood-burning stove keeps the entire cabin warm and cozy. While there is only one proper bedroom downstairs, the large, open upstairs loft is comfortable for seven sleepers “.
Trust us, if you want to experience a true pine tree forest getaway, this is the place to go. It’s rated 5 Stars with 28 reviews!! 😉
