New site! We are getting this space ready and it will open for bookings after Labor day!

A mountain getaway with a mix of meadow, forest, and boulder hillside at 7000' elevation. Search for the (unoccupied) bear cave, walk in the footsteps of the 49ers on a section of the old Emigrant Trail, earn yourself a gorgeous view of the Dardanelles from the top. We are kitty corner to national forest land for further exploration. 

The Muffin Mansion was once of the top homeshare listings in the SF Bay Area. It's living a new life in the mountains, offering an adorable getaway that's truly glamping. It has a bed for two and cots for two more - just bring your sleeping bags! A camp stove (BYO propane) and lounge chairs are free for use. There are no hookups - this is a dry camper - so be sure to bring your own water.

For larger groups there are several spots where you can pitch a tent.

Next to a small meadow and with direct access to the old 49er trail, the site has plenty of shady areas throughout the day and is a short walk to the bathroom. Site #3 is on the other side of some woods, so you may see other campers through the trees. Book both for an awesome group space!

Nearby fun: For water play, you are 10min from Lake Apine, 25min to Utica, Union, and Spicer Meadow reservoirs. Corral Hollow (easy-moderate) and Slick Rock (advanced) OHV trails are a couple miles in either direction. The resort town of Arnold is just 30min away for a bit of civilization. Remember to bring your own water, grab your gear and enjoy the crisp mountain air!

Ginger was super accommodating and responsive to my questions and concerns. My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Muffin Mansion. Would definitely visit again, perhaps when Lake Alpine is open!
