Welcome to El Dorado Motel & Gift Shop located in the quaint village of Twain Harte, California. Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, this lodging facility and gift shop are situated in quiet natural environment surrounded by pine and cedar trees above the Sierra Nevada Foothills. The village of Twain Harte is a beautiful mountain resort community which was named after two mother lode authors Mark Twain and Bret Harte. Right in the heart of historical gold country, El Dorado motel is an excellent place for relaxation, year round.

The summers in the pines are pleasant during the day and nights are generally mild, making Twain Harte a pleasant escape from the long, hot summers of the California Central Valley and the chill of the Bay Area. Summer events start in full swing by Memorial Day. There are endless activities till the fall approaches and Oktoberfest is celebrated. During the winter months, Twain Harte is famous for winter sports and snow. Skiing and snowmobiling are the main attractions during this period. The snow laded pine trees present an excellent scene to thrill the soul. In spring, when snow starts melting from the mountains and flowers start blooming, it is time for hiking, camping, fishing, rock climbing, horseback riding, and biking through the forests & along the many rivers and streams.

This motel is a center of attraction for weekenders who are looking for a family/friendly get together. It is a favorite place for visitors from Bay area, Stockton, Modesto, Oakdale, Bakersfield, and Los Angles.
