We loved our little vacation rental, super cute, very comfy, and everything it advertised! The only “glitch” was that the dryer did not work; in speaking with the housecleaner that came as we were leaving, she noted that she had received that memo previously, and wondered why it had not been repaired. We ended up taking wet clothes home after two days, yuck… I’m sure that was just an oversight, and not reflective of the overall visit. The “hidden gem” of this place is the pool, we were the only people in the pool for two days! We will definitely be back!
Manager response:
HI, Debbie! The appliance techs in the area are three weeks out, so we were unable to get anybody in immediately to address the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience it caused you and hope to still see you again!

Thank you for a great cabin offered for others to enjoy!! Our family had some unforgettable memories. We enjoyed White Pines Lake, Yosemite, and Renegade Winery. What a beautiful area God has made for us to enjoy. Thank you. God bless you and your family. Thank you for sharing your sanctuary with us!

Our family absolutely loved staying here. Your cabin is so dang cute and cozy! This is our family’s first trip to California, and we’ve enjoyed the hiking trails and wine sampling. My favorite thing has been laying in bed in the mornings with the windows open and listening to the birds sing. This has been a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy. Hopefully, we’ll be back one day!

We had a wonderful time in this cabin and we loved all the miscellaneous decorations that were so cool. We loved that we had deer walk by every morning

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. Kids also enjoyed alot. We loved your house and your taste of antique design. We would love to visit again.
Dorothea M M. Jun 2019
My husband and I went for a weekend getaway and loved staying there! The owners have put lots of love and cleverness in the way they decorated it, putting antiques to use in many ways. It is a big cabin with 4 bedrooms, 2 that have a king size bed, so it can sleep many people comfortably. The setting is beautiful with views of the forest from all windows. We will surely return again when we are up in that area!

Thank you for your lovely, cozy home with it's delightful decor and loving energy. I have thoroughly enjoyed my short stay and I would love to return again with friends or family to fully take in all this house in the woods has to offer. I love it!
The Ochea Family . May 2019
Thank you for sharing your cabin. Loved the decor and we even got snow the day we left. Nice, quiet family time that has been much needed. We will be back.
Alexis C. May 2019
This place is truly a gem! Clean and comfortable to start with, but also a *fully* stocked kitchen with tons of pots and pans, baking essentials, a Keurig, full selection of seasonings, and cooking/baking/serving utensils. And so many thoughtful touches--small signs and labels throughout the house identifying handy tips. A fully stocked cabinet of games and puzzles. A plethora of materials on local attractions and restaurants. Complimentary hot chocolate with marshmellows, and a pumpkin bread mix--just so cute and thoughtful! But the best was the decorative flair throughout the home--such style and whimsy!

Truly a diamond in the rough and we hope to be back during the summer with friends!

We loved staying in this beautiful cabin with our family! Our kids kept saying that the owners of the cabin must be very creative because so many of the pieces of the decor are repurposed so creatively!

Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Adalberto! We apologize for the trash situation due to the heavy amounts of snow burying the cans. We are now caught up and hope to see you again!
Kristin C. Jan 2019
This place really has it all, two king size beds for the adults, great bunk room/playroom (with toys!) and an extra room which would be perfect for the older kids that want some privacy. Kitchen had everything you need, lots of things to do outside, cards and games inside, just a cozy little place. Perfect for a multi family getaway.
The Cabral Family . Jan 2019
Amazing! Our first trip w/ friends and all our kids. So many memories. The muffins and hot cocoa was an amazing addition to a house so full already. Decor was awesome, so kid friendly. We are already looking forward to next time. Thank you to the owners!
Jesse W. Jan 2019
There is no detail missed in the decoration of this place; you will love it! From the way it is nestled into the forest all the way to the decor on the table, it was a picture perfect setting!

We are so appreciative of the decor and the creativeness of your cabin. Everything was put together so clever and nice.

We enjoyed your wonderful cabin for our family vacation! A day at White Pines Lake followed by a great BBQ. We loved the deck and had a great time playing games! Thanks for the wonderful memories.
The Parenti Family . Jul 2018
Your cabin provided fabulous amenities for our family of five. What a wonderful place to relax at the end of a great day of adventures. This is our FAVE cabin so far!
Stephanie . Jun 2018
We had SUCH FUN exploring both inside and outside your amazing cabin! The girls loved finding all the surprises in the red lockers, and Calvin & Hobbes was, as always, an excellent read. Your artistic touches truly made this a vacation to remember, and I appreciate every detail - especially the “where to find it” page in the welcome binder- SO GREAT!. We enjoyed the quiet, the squirrels, and the gorgeous trees. Hope to come back again soon! Many, many thanks!
