The HOUSE: Our 2800 sf home is on two levels. All bedrooms, 1.5 baths, hot tub, and laundry room are on the bottom level. The top floor, the main floor, is a huge great room. There is a library, kitchen, dining, TV area, and mudroom. Just outside is a 500 sf deck which is very nice in summertime. It has a fully retractable awning over the main section of the deck. You can go outside and relax, do your yoga, or pick some herbs for your dinner- May through October. Solar panels are on the roof. We eat mostly organic foods. Feel free to use what is in our pantry to complement your meals. In winter you may borrow our snowshoes. Just a short 200 foot, somewhat heart pounding, elevation gain from the house will bring you to the Twain Harte ditch system. This is a system of waterways (our local drinking water) which has running/biking trails right next to it. You can easily get a five mile run out in the woods right from our home. We have a small swimming lake just down the street from our home.
You can access your bedroom through our home. Our home has two floors. From the street you will descend nine steps to our main floor. Then 12 more steps down to the bottom floor which is where all the bedrooms are located. Hot tub is accessed by walking along side of house.

Twain Harte is at an elevation of 4000'. You will need to take that into consideration when planning your trip. We are typically 'about snow line' during the storms of recent years. We have one vehicle that is front wheel drive, not four wheel, and have done pretty well the last several years. But there are about 5 days a year I can't drive the front wheel because the snow is more than three inches deep. Just plan accordingly.
No smoking in the house or on the grounds. You may smoke up in the court about 6 feet behind your car. Fully extinguish your cigarette and dispose of properly. Practice fire safety in tinderbox California. No BBQs. We hope you enjoy your stay and will assist you in your travel planning. Quiet time by 10:00 seems reasonable. If you stay out late, just come in quietly.
We are a 'getting ready to retire' couple. Our children are grown so we like to travel. Liz still works full time as a teacher. Terry is a retired meat cutter now working his own business as a small business bookkeeper and tax preparer. We both enjoy good health and engage in a number of outdoor activities: running, skiing, snowshoeing, backpacking, as well as leisurely pursuits such as gardening, music, cooking and sharing meals, and reading.
