1 bed, 1 bath, satellite TV, WiFi, mini fridge, electric cook-top, books, and all the rushing water you can handle.

Old cabins have an authentic feel that is tough to replicate. Seldom will you find one that is built right on the edge of a rushing creek-bed in the High Sierra. Here it is!

*New for 2018 we just have had fiber optic internet installed to our house and backyard cabin. For those that are interested in working remotely in this beautiful setting consider this: with speeds up to 100 times faster than DSL or cable, our upload and download speeds are among the highest in the state.

Centrally located in the Eastern Sierra, the small town of Hilton Creek is as charming as it is peaceful, and this one bedroom cabin is absolutely perfect for personal retreat, a romantic get-a-way, or for recreation and adventure!

Summer brings rushing rivers, rich green forests, and a welcome relief from the soaring temperatures of the valley floor.

Below is Hilton Lake #5, one of the many lakes upstream that constantly supply our domestic water.

Fall offers you spectacular color with bright yellow aspen groves.

We do reside on the premises and remove snow during the winter.


If it’s recreation you’re seeking,

then you’ve definitely come to the right place!

All year long, the Eastern Sierra is an outdoor enthusiasts dream.

Although winter skiing and snowboarding is our most popular draw for weekend visitors, summer recreational activities are numerous and more varied. Spend your days at our many lakes and streams that provide plenty of world class fresh water fishing.

Or, you can pass the time soaking up the sun in the Mammoth Lakes Village, providing a quaint shopping experience and access to many delectable restaurants and other outdoor activities. Boat rentals are also available at several locations – in Mammoth Lakes, Convict Lake, Crowley Lake, and June Lakes.

The John Muir and Ansel Adams Wilderness hiking trails pretty much blanket the area – and so do mountain biking trails, equestrian trails, and rock climbing spots. The cabin is less than an hour from the:

Historic Bodie National Park and Yosemite National Park.

Crowley Lake- 4 minutes away.

Mammoth Mountain ski resort - 20 minute drive.

June Mountain ski resort - 35 minute drive.

City of Bishop- under 30 minutes away.

Free pick-up and drop-off for Pacific Crest Trail or John Muir Trail guests!

Each season is different but summer and fall are guest favorites. Please note that during the winter (and most of spring) Yosemite National Park cannot be accessed easily from the cabin because Tioga Pass (HWY 120) is closed.

The cabin is on the small side but perfect for two, well behaved children can be accommodated but no pets please. We love pets, but some of our eldest family members have pet allergies and use this cabin too.

The bed is a double (slightly smaller than queen sized), the bathroom has a shower, and the kitchen is combined into the living room. Cable TV and wifi are available, sometimes the creek makes so much noise it is hard to hear the TV! During the colder times of year we have a wonderful wood burning stove and plenty of firewood. If you don't know how to build a fire, let us know, my wife and I are pro's.

Some folks are concerned that the cabin is isolated in the middle of nowhere and that access is difficult. We live on the property, have a main house and this rental cabin in back. Our road is paved, parking is paved and its a short 25 foot walk to the front door. In the winter we will remove snow to make your life easier. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet. Although the buildings are close together the creek creates an ambiance of privacy and drowns out all sounds, this cabin faces the creek and forest -- you may as well be deep in the wilderness.

Domestic water is piped in straight from the creek. It's filtered but guests should drink bottled water, we'll start you off with a gallon. Creek water is perfect for showering, cooking, brushing teeth, etc. You'll notice the difference.
