Come stay in a secluded, custom-built, luxury log cabin nestled in the woods. Located on five acres in the heart of California Gold Country, Gold Creek Cabin is only a 2-hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area and just over an hour from Sacramento. Avoid the I-80 corridor and take the road less travelled. Gold Creek Cabin (3500’ elevation) is perfectly situated near Kirkwood Mountain Resort and Sutter Creek, with easy access to year-round outdoor activities, wine tasting, restaurants, historical gold rush towns, antique stores and the Jackson Rancheria casino. Explore the Gold Country without range anxiety – recharge your EV while you sleep and be ready for another perfect day in the foothills!

Gold Creek Cabin was designed to accommodate two families comfortably:
Main level: Queen bedroom with Nectar bed and pillows, private full bathroom with pebble shower floor; living room with fireplace and cathedral ceiling open to kitchen and dining area; powder room; fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
Upper level: Queen bedroom; triple built-in bunk bedroom; full bathroom with tub/shower; open, skylit reading and game loft with space for an air mattress. Private balconies off upstairs bedrooms. Guests assume all liability for use of bunk bed and ladder.
Lower level: Queen bedroom; full bathroom with spa shower; recreation room with fireplace, pool table, dartboard and space for an air mattress; home theater with HDTV, Bose audio system and huge DVD library; full-size washer and dryer in laundry room; walkout basement.
Outside: Large deck wraps around two sides; gas campfire pit; Adirondack chairs; gas grill

“Eco-luxury” amenities include:
- High speed internet
- LED lighting
- Radiant heating in bathroom floors
- Tankless hot water system for endless hot water
- Instant-on gas fireplaces with thermostat
- Central heat and A/C
- Streaming of live and on-demand TV or enjoy your own subscription services
- Tesla Wall Connector charging station; JDapter Stub available for electric vehicles using a J1772 plug

In the winter, easily access the cabin from the Bay Area even when it is snowing hard uphill at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Don't risk not being able to get to your vacation rental. Then make the drive to Kirkwood as soon as roads are clear. If roads are closed, enjoy all that Gold Creek Cabin has to offer, such as the home theater with 150+ DVDs, HDTV, dartboard, and pool table.

In the summer, escape the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area with an easy, 2-hour drive into the heart of the California Gold Country. Explore the historical attractions and visit Gold Rush towns like Sutter Creek and Volcano. Take a hike in to the ''potholes'' and relax by the water. Plan to go fishing, boating, biking, hiking, kayaking, and really enjoy the outdoors. Grill on the large wrap-around deck and relax in the Adirondack chairs, enjoying a cold beverage.

Sit around the ''instant on'' gas fire pit at night and make s'mores or just enjoy the peace and quiet under the stars.

We can help you plan a Gold Country getaway to remember!

We were both born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we still live here, close to family. We love spending time in the outdoors, often exploring the many hiking trails in the East Bay with our two younger daughters.

We fell in love with this cabin at first sight, and love sharing it with others. It's perfectly situated to get away from the hectic Bay Area, and avoid the traffic and crowds in Tahoe.
