Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Dorrington:
We have been vacationing in the Big Trees area for more than 30 years and simply love the beauty of the area. It is a fantastic community for families, very peaceful and relaxing. Many fun things to do all year round. Winter activities include, skiing (downhill and cross country), snowmobiling, tubing and snowshoeing. Spring, summer and fall activities include hiking, fishing, kayaking, boating, water skiing, swimming, golfing, wine tasting, outdoor concerts and theater, Bear Valley Music Festival, biking and spelunking as well as visiting Gold Mines, Railtown and nearby Columbia.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are located on a quiet street with Big Trees State park trail access within walking distance (about a block away). Bear Valley Ski resort is a 30 minute drive. Stanislaus River access for fishing and river trail is about 5 minutes away and Melones Reservoir is approx. 40 minutes. During the winter we get ample snow around the cabin to have a great snowball fight and sled on site. The Upper and lower decks allow for fun space for kids as well as adults. The Hot Tub is relaxing and fun amongst the beautiful forested surroundings year round. Hot Tub seats about 8 people comfortably and the outdoor surround sound system adds to the fun. Outdoor tables and chairs are available on both decks, the upper deck also sports a comfortable outdoor seating area during the summer months in addition to both gas and charcoal BBQ's. The gourmet kitchen is fitted with espresso machine, Cuisinart and everything you need to cook up a beautiful holiday dinner. Upper and lower living rooms provide a place of entertainment for both kids and adults. Kids especially love the triple-decker double bunk bed!
