When we moved to the Sierra Foothills, we found this cozy, little spot on the property and we set up a campsite for friends and family. People loved the space so much that we decided to build this cozy cabin and host other guests as well... The hot tub can be filled with fresh water and be heated by wood and/or be filled using the on demand hot water heater. The private outdoor shower is in a beautiful garden setting.Our furnished cozy cabin is in a private meadow/garden setting. During the fire season you fill the hot tub from the on demand hot water heater. In the Winter you can heat it with wood. The private outdoor shower is surrounded by sweet sage., The sitting area also has a seasonal use fire pit. We provide toiletries as well as towels and super soft bathrobes.   The outdoor kitchen has all you need to cook a meal and serve. A short walk will bring you to the outhouse.

Cozy cabin in the Sierra foothills
Above and beyond expectations
What a dream! This was my first Hipcamp reservation and what finalized my decision was a previous review saying this was great for solo female travelers. This was absolutely true and I loved my two nights at Malaina’s site. She was such a lovely and attentive host. I felt that I had all of the privacy I needed but it was nice knowing my host had my back if I needed anything. The location was incredible. You’re in the company of native woodpeckers, quail, and the constant overhead patrol of Turkey vultures. The landscaping of the property was wonderful and one of the best features was the outhouse not gonna lie. I mean when was the last time you went to the bathroom with a view of a stunning manzanita? Expect all of the amenities listed. I felt fully prepared entering the site, although I wasn’t sure if I needed propane for the stovetop - you don’t. Malaina has everything covered and I highly recommend this host and site!

Cozy cabin in the Sierra foothills
We loved staying at the cabin! The bed was super comfortable and allowed for a restful nights sleep. We loved the hot tub and the infinite amount of hot water. We brought our own cooking utensils but our host provided everything we would have needed. Our host was super helpful with recommendations of what to do around town and did everything possible to ensure we enjoyed our stay!

Malaina and her property were amazing! Even during a freak snowstorm her place was cozier than expected. The on demand water heater for the hot tub was just what we needed. Malaina was the best host and so accommodating. She always made sure we had everything we needed and enough firewood. She even washed some towels for us. Our dogs had the best time being able to run around and play to their hearts content. I definitely recommend this place in any weather condition. We hope to visit again during non-snowy weather.

Enjoy some peace and nature!
Peaceful hideout with western sun, amongst the trees and flowers...if you need a place to be still definitely consider this gem! The bed is comfortable and my sleep was easy (a miracle alone). The hot tub experience is truly unique and magical . I thoroughly enjoyed the views, tree-filled with birds, bees, & thunderstorms during early Spring. The Tuolumne Table Mountain hike near by was stunning and absolutely worth the short 10 minute drive. Nature lovers, fire tenders, and plant folk would like this spot. Not to mention the host is stellar and went above and beyond- truly made my trip unforgettable. I definitely will return! Solo female travelers, I highly recommend!

This was one of the loveliest glamping experiences I’ve ever had! The location was great, we got to explore locally in the town and on a very nice hike recommended by the host. The amenities here were such a nice touch. Hot tub in the evening watching the stars… hot tub in the morning before some yoga on the deck. Vibrations were high here and Malaina was super flexible and accommodating, having the fire and hot tub ready for us whenever we returned back to our little nook. We will definitely be back again 🥰
