Property Reviews 
Halloween in Twain Harte
Ken F. from Oakland, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013
The weather was quite good with just one day of rain. The property was one of the best we have stayed at. The coffee maker did not work well at all, and the blinds over the sliding glass door (which would not lock) kept falling onto the floor one at a time.I will definitely stay at this property again (may bring my own coffee maker).

Not really dog friendly.
Robert C. from Sunnyvale, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
Back yard full of burrs. Let dogs go there only once and regretted it. Beds really too hard, unpleasantly so. Front steps ill lit, driveway too. Unsafe. Decks were covered with tree leaves, dust, etc...not very welcoming. Way overpriced for the quality. Not par at all for TVHR. Love Blackhawk #63, but needed additional cabin for additional family.

Beautiful Area, dated cabin
Mary Q. from San Rafael, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013
I reserved this cabin in October 2012 for my family to attend a wedding June 2013. In February 2013, after sending a deposit to hold the cabin, the rental company increased the rent for our stay. I felt taken advantage of, even though their generic rental agreement states the rent can be increased at any time.The cabin is very dated, 1960s d├ęcor, linens, furniture, appliances, although the ovens had been updated. It did not warrant the rent charged, let alone an increase in rent.

Great Location - We stayed at Mark Twain 33. It was a short, pleasant walk into town, and a short drive to the Lake.
A guest from Millbrae, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011
The house and yard were in good condition, with a few minor exceptions: the hood over the stove didn't work, the coffee maker didn't drip properly, there was no corkscrew, one of the sofa's was very lumpy and uncomfortable, and there were some creaking noises in the upstairs of the house at night. Other than this, everything was well maintained, well stocked and working, and the beds were comfortable. We were pleased overall, and especially appreciated that the enclosed yard was secure for our dog.

A guest from Los Gatos, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2011
Cabin is furnished with old, hand me down furniture. Bedspreads were dirty. Broken fan was a fire hazard. Kitchen is stocked with the cheapest assortment of utensils, pans, etc. There is no pride or desire to make the the cabin a place visitors would want to return to. The upstairs addition of two bedrooms was done as cheaply as possible. The back yard is well fenced and is safe for a dog. The property manager does not seem to have any quality standards for which homes she will rent out. Our family loves Twain Harte and will return to the town again, but NOT to this cabin or to this rental agency.

Ski trip mid-Feb 2011
Mary M. from Los Gatos, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in February, 2011
Very disappointed in the cable channels--for a few dollars more a month, more kid-friendly channels would have been available. Like the lockbox convenience. Would be easier to find stuff in the kitchen if some of the many duplicates were removed. Downstairs shower head lousy. Fix door rod in upstairs bedroom. Sliding glass door very hard to slide open/closed.

Cosy cabin in a quiet and charming location
A guest from Sunnyvale, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2010
Was fit for 2 families with kids. Nicely designed, furnished. The kitchen well equipped - need to bring wine opener though.. The interior is charming, interesting books.Could be much perfect with bigger beds on the rooms on the first floor. And the need to bring linens and towels is a bit of a down grade.Other than that all worked fine and we had a great 3 days stay!

Our original cabin had some structural damage so we were given this cabin instead. Although it would not have been our first choice, the cabin was still enjoyable. Are only regret was that the cabin was not on street level and with a child and a pregnant wife it is hard to have stairs. Otherwise we had a great time

Disappointing Cabin
A guest from Alameda, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in February, 2010
Arrived at 10:00 pm having informed the agency we'd be late to receive a difficult to read in the dark forest service map and no directions to the cabin. The cabin was dark and cold on arrival;not even a porch light on to light the way up the uneven path and steep staircase to the front door. Inside many of the lights were burned out and there were no spare light bulbs to be found. The main sofa was hard as a rock. The kitchen was poorly equipped-no wine opener, dull knives, a poorly functioning coffee maker, no dish towels to dry dishes, no bath mat in the bathroom or even a rubber mat in the tub so showering was scary. Carpets not very clean in the main bedroom. Very limited television reception,no movies available and no games in the house that we could see. Overall, just no up to the standards we're used to. The agency was closed for the holiday weekend and evidently did not want to be called as they included a note in the envelope that said "don't call us if the electricity goes out" which kind of indicates they don't want to be bothered.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Twain Harte Vacation Rentals
The map we provided is not a Forest Service map - it is an enlarged version from the map of the area. We apologize if the porch light was not on at arrival - that is standard procedure for our housekeeping staff when they open the cabin for you. Last time I was there, there was a supply of dish towels (which I had washed myself) - not sure where they might have ended up ... This unit is advertised as having basic cable TV and is not listed as having a video library. We do expect our guests to call us if they have any issues with the cabin. The only reason the special note is in the packet regarding electricity is that there really ISN'T anything we can do about PG&E outages. The note posted on the cabin refrigerator encourages guests to call us if anything is awry. We would gladly have brought over light bulbs. Not sure what you mean about the coffeemaker being "poorly functioning", but would appreciate a little more info on that.

Very narrow back-out turnaround-must watch not to hit the t-pole across the street. The shower brings on very hot water-so must be careful. The upstairs bedrooms are very hot during the day..but cool at night. Overall, I would rent again.

Too Hot
A guest from Clayton, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009
The cabin was very clean, and everything we needed was there except a cooling system. There were fans but they only made the experience bearable. The owner needs to at least install ceiling fans or perhaps the property manager could open the place up ahead of guest arrivals. Other than that the experience was great.

Mark Twain 33 was centrally located to several great attractions. We took day trips to Yosemite, Pinecrest Lake (Dodge Ridge) and Kennedy Meadows.

The cabin was fine except needed to update the sofa bed and make it usable. Other than that it was fine and in a good location.
Angel H. from Belmont, California recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2009
I put our comments in the envelope when I returned the keys on Sunday. I was pleased with the location of the home but we could not use the brown fold out sofa bed in the livingroom. The mattress was filthy, even had screws and dirt on top when unfolded. It was unusable and looks like it hadn't been open in years? I don't want to be blamed for the filth. You rented a unit for sleeping 12 but we had to have to of our party sleep on the floor, which in fact that rug was also filthy. Two of our guests had no sleeping. I think we should be compensated somehow for this situation when returning our cleaning deposits. I would rent this facility again if these things were improved. I filled out this information in my envelope when I returned the keys on Sunday.Thank you for your help and good rental communication.Angel HessionThank you,Angel Hession

We submitted a comment form to the Property Manager letting them know several of the chairs we either broken or well on their way to being broken (unsafe to sit on). The pots under the stove had black sludge as though someone put them away still wet. The upstairs had no vetilation and was extremely uncomfortable at night.
