About Nora's Retreats

I have been interested in real estate properties since I was young.


My mother was a realtor and I went along with her on many occasions to view homes; the older ones with interesting characters and architectural styles were always my favorites- the ones that had nooks and crannies and little corners for no reason, or built-in book cases.


Some kitchens didn’t have space for a fridge! My dad was an engineer and handyman I enjoyed going to the lumberyard and hardware store with him. The tiny house idea has always appealed to me, as did living “off the grid.” I’ve always wanted a cabin in the woods.


So, my Pine Mountain cabin came first. Then I built my “treehouse” and most recently, I bought my “Blue House” in the forest of Bouquet Canyon. Pine Mountain Club is a private community with amenities available at the nearby clubhouse. These include a golf course, tennis courts, game room, swimming pool and restaurant. Please visit for more information.


If you’re renting for a weekend, please remember to bring Linens, towels, bed sheets, pillow cases and all personal hygiene items. There are none at the cabin. If Verizon is your carrier, there’s a local tower that will provide cell service once you enter the area. If you are with another carrier, WiFi is available at the clubhouse. Bookings for one week or longer have access to Internet browsing and email. For more info, please contact me directly to discuss the options. There are games, toys and a DVD player. Bring your own (or rented) DVDs with you. Please leave the cabin in the condition you first found it.


Please use the pellet stove for heat. Instructions for its proper use are located at the cabin. Keep children away from the pellet stove when it is operating. The instructions for turning water on and off are in the notebook. Please be sure to turn off all lights and the pellet stove upon leaving, and be sure to place keys back in the lock box. In the event of an electricity outage, there is a propane heater in the shed outside, and candles in the kitchen.


Most importantly–relax and enjoy yourselves!

Sylvie from Pine Mountain Club

This was great! If you are looking for upscale treatment, this is not it. But if you are looking for a basic rustic cabin feel, yet with comfortable beds and all the basic necessities at a great value price; Nora's cabin was perfect! We loved it!

This cute, clean cabin was perfect for what our family wanted for the holidays. It is definitely small, but is cozy and warm. Our family of five was very comfortable there, and I loved that I could watch the kids sled safely in the front yard, from the warm living room. I appreciated that the owner responds quickly to all emails, and that she has stocked the cabin with games and books. There are many hiking trails nearby, and the owner provides detailed descriptions and directions to each. This cabin is not large or fancy or new, but it is clean and cozy and exactly what our family was looking for, to spend quality time together. We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be returning in the future.

What a precious cabin in a small area called Pine Mountain near Frazier Park. This was exactly the house and location our family needed. It was very quiet and the cabin simply couldn't of been more perfect for the price. Owner was very responsive and open to ideas to make the experience better. The food in this small town is delicious. Make sure to try the Red Dot Vegetarian restaurant in Frazier Park...even our 3 toddlers loved it. Great stay!
