Cisco, CA: Where "Family Time" Begins; Romantic Honeymoon "Cabins in the Woods", at Shinneyboo Creek Cabin Resort, on the South Yuba River in the High Sierra

Share Article

As the symptoms of inner peace emerge, you see the smile of contentment on their relaxing faces and they declare, I've been Shinneyboo'd! This is what happens when you getaway from the fast track life and enter the slow lane of nature on the quiet side of the summit at Shinneyboo Creek Cabin Resort.

Shinneyboo is such an amazing place . . .these cabins are adorable!

All this last year, newly built Shinneyboo Creek Cabin Resort has been providing a place for couples, friends, families and lovers to retreat from their busy lives and get respite off the beaten path for awhile. These cozy romantic cabins have provided a magical staging ground for wonderful days and nights of rest and fun and adventure.

While children seem to understand Shinneyboo immediately, Shinneyboo Creek creators, Michael & Chris Rogers, their children and family must have found some kind of special formula to have so “effortlessly” entertained and rekindled the “child-like spirits” of so many a work & road-weary adult, as well as even surprising and enlivening a few “world-wise” teens.

Serious symptoms of fatigue and malaise and disinterest from the dreaded “Nature-Deficit Syndrome” have somehow vanished within hours after a good hike to the river or a leisurely walk to the point overlooking the Tahoe National Forest.

Parents who come with their car-cooped children can soon be identified by the faint trail of gleeful sounds they leave behind them as they explore the lofts and then run for the sledding hill, never to return until dark, tired and ready for a quiet time playing cards, star-gazing or telling stories around the campfire.

Wedding guests, Honeymooners and Anniversary celebrators are often checked into their cabins and never seen again the rest of the weekend, except emerging in the dark of night to seek food. Wisely designed, most cabins have a private deck facing the forest so peace and quiet are available, even while others are gathering together for fun & socializing.

The village-like cluster of the eight intimate cabins provides a sense of security and privacy while access to the outdoors is instantly gratified right out the front door.

“Pamping” is the term coined by owner, Michael Rogers, for that secret blend of hospitality called pampered camping.

Shinneyboo Creek provides all the joys of camping like fire-rings for each cabin in the summer and the warm flicker of firelight from the stoves in the winter, with the year-round comfort of a good bed, a hot bath at the end of the day and breakfast to your door in the morning.

Testimonies to the benefits of time spent at Shinneyboo are some of the following guest remarks:

"I couldn't ask for better, thanks"
