Trinity cabin is elegant in its simplicity. It measures, 16 x 20 and is a  studio cabin that offers more privacy as it's the last in the row of 3 cabins.  Covered porches on the front and back invite relaxing amongst the trees. Arapaho meadow is in front with trailheads to wander across the private 200 acres.

The kitchen is equipped with a small counter kitchen featuring a stainless mini- refrigerator,  2 burner propane camp stove,  cookware, dishes, silver ware for 4,  and minimal other kitchen items. It does not have indoor plumbing and hot water is made off the wood stove or stove. There are showers and a flush toilet at Bathhouse in  main house. Clean 2 stall outhouse nearby cabins.

It has a queen LOG BED is perfect for 2 and there is a smaller fold out futon good for a child.

We now have by the 3 cabins a shared group picnic area with a large charcoal BBQ, a massive 16 foot slab table, a fire pit and misc. chairs for family gathering and group workshops. We charge $10. per load via the honor system and in winter we charge $10 per nite for firewood provided in the cabin.

Weber grill is available , you bring the charcoal! 

The woodstove provides ample heat and there are wide windows that offer tree views.  This cabin is not winterized yet but visitors could stay warm even in snowy winter if they tend the fire and place ample firewood in the wood stove. Ample firewood provided. We recommend 4 wheel drive vehicles in winter. It takes us typically 1-2 days to plow our 1.5 mile gravel rd. down off the county maintained Cruzon Grade rd. Cruzon grade is paved and county plowed many times each day when the snow is flying.

There is a small bridge nearby across a seasonal creek. Walk 50 feet and there is a grassy meadow, called Arapaho, surrounded by both young and growth trees. This meadow is also seen from the front porch.

Plan on cozy fire time, reconnecting, hiking, star gazing, journaling, serenading birds and possible magical encounters.

Walking this 200 acre eco-preserve is exhilarating and harmonizing to body, mind and spirit.  If this cabin is reserved check out our larger Geronimo Cabin, or our Shamballa Cabin.

This land is inviting, private, and resides on a large developing Retreat space. We have an extensive trail system here which is partially in place with marked trails. A trail map is in development. Surrounded by thousands of areas of the Tahoe National Forest. A mere 5 miles from Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park with miles of further hiking.

Write me for a weather link which is helpful for this 4000 foot elevation property.

WIFI is available outside in front of some cabins which works from approx. 7 am to 10 pm and then we shut the system off.  There are WIFI stations available closer to the source by the main house which many use as well.

dogs and pets are $15 per nite

I loved my stay in Trinity Cabin. It was a perfect blend of rustic and remote with basic amenities to make the stay comfortable (running water, electric, camp stove). It was a bit off the beaten path but close enough to the places I wanted to explore (Nevada City, Yuba River, Tahoe, etc). Would definitely stay again.

Thank you, Devon, for your kind review- it really is most beautiful here during spring and early summer when the flowers and grasses are all green and fragrant so do come again

The Trinity cabin was lovely. The land is quite remote, a really good distance from town. Easy to find though, from the excellent directions from Adam. We visited during a heat wave, so thankfully there were plenty of swim spots along the river nearby, but you have to drive. Mosquitoes were pretty intense so bring some citronella candles or bug spray if you want to be outside. Can’t wait to go back in late fall so we can use the stove to keep us warm.

We had a good time in the Trinity cabin. The small trails inside the campsite are short and good exercise for my 5-year-old.

The swimming holes nearby (Edwards crossing) are so beautiful. We loved it.

The pictures are accurate. The bed is clean and comfortable.

Nice hosts. Good amenities. We would return but would choose a cabin with kitchen with running water, at least during coronavirus. Bed in Trinity cabin was comfortable and we are picky about that. Only issue was I’m allergic and they only had feather pillows afaik. Quite a bit off the beaten path so have to drive to swimming.

We rented Trinity, Serenity and Shamballa for a family cabin trip. My parents stayed in Trinity and enjoyed the simplicity of it. Even during a warm weekend, it has great air flow and stays cool.
