                            This place is beautiful! My daughter got teary eyed when she stepped into the cabin and saw the beautiful view of the lake and Ironside. My husband has been hunting this area since he was a boy. I wish we'd known about this place a long time ago. Very relaxing. No cell phone reception and no internet....perfect! The days went by at a nice peaceful pace. Our grandson enjoyed being outside, walking around the lake, exploring and taking a short hike up the road behind the cabin. We will be back...soon! Thank you Brenda, Greg and Choco! :-)

                            We reserved this beautiful place through the property owners, Brenda Simmons and her husband, Greg, for a weekend in September to celebrate our post-wedding/arrival of our new daughter. These were some of the positive takeaways: 1) In the months leading up to our event, Brenda and Greg were extremely accessible and helpful in making sure things went according to plan. They made sure we knew that we could email or call whenever we had a question or concern. They were extremely professional yet truly cared about the way our event turned out. They had our best interests at heart. We would say it was a great experience based on the ease of communication with Brenda and Greg. 2) The weekend of the party was enjoyed by all of our family and friends that attended. A few of them even inquired to the availability of the property for the next calendar year. That's a true testament to how beautiful, fun, and adventurous the area is. Whether you're swimming in the lake, floating down the river or relaxing on the deck, you can be assured to get the most travel pleasure possible when you stay here. 3) The price was more than fair for the length of stay and all that came with it. To spend a weekend at such a gorgeous place as this was a pleasant getaway, but was made even sweeter that we received such a great price for it. Based on the fairness of Brenda and Greg, I wouldn't hesitate to take another trip here. Overall, we thought that the land, stay, and property owners were just to die for. We were pleased to have such a beautiful location to put on such an important event. We'll definitely keep this memories for the rest of our lives. I'd highly recommend the lodging to anyone who wants to have an unbelievable time whether it's a weekend getaway or full-on vacation.

                            As always the cabin and property were clean and in great shape. Brenda and Greg go out of thier way to make us feel right at home and provide every thing that we can think of.. Grand daughters have a wonderful time exploring and swimming. Just a great place to relax in a comfortable and quite surroundings with a million dollar view. The lake is in great shape and the fish are healthy. We have already booked again for next year.

                            When going for our last swim before checking out, my daughters told me that they did not want to leave, I had to wholeheartedly agree with them. The atmosphere is so enjoyable and relaxing. While staying at the cabin, it feels like a trip to a recreational area right outside the front door. The best part is that the patrons are all family and friends. I had moments with my children and wife that I will never forget. The natural surroundings are majestic. Brenda and Greg are outstanding hosts. They were friendly, accommodating but never intrusive. If you visit, please respect the sanctuary they have created and ENJOY!

                            Our family of five spent a week in this perfect place in July. I was amazed at how clean the cabin was, and little necessities like soap, shampoo, conditioner, towels, sponge were all provided for us. The lake was just the right size for our three elementary aged girls. They fished, swam, boated and had the time of their lives! We used the grill and ate on the front porch of the cabin enjoying the beautiful scenery. We even saw deer! The owners are friendly and courteous and checked to make sure we had everything we needed. They even mailed us the clothing we left behind in their dryer (for free and without being asked)! It was such a wonderful place to vacation and I hope we go back every year! Peaceful and great for families!

                            My husband and I just finished a two night stay at the Burnt Ranch property. What a perfect weekend! The location was amazing, the price, the place itself, and the ability to get away from it all! This is truly god's country and it is so great to have been here! We really need to keep this place a secret!!

                            We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin - so much so that I almost don't want to share the secret! This was the last place we stayed during a long summer road trip - and it was one of our two favorite places of the trip. The whole family loved the lake and we spent many hours using the various canoes, kayaks, the paddle board etc. to explore the lake and try to catch frogs (not easy!). Our 6 year old had a blast kayaking all by herself. We would love to come again and stay for longer than 2 days. Our hosts were super friendly too! Being the only vacationers on the property, it was also very private and peaceful, and at the same time we weren't too worried about our small children bothering anyone else. Thanks for a great stay!

                            Skycrest is quickly become our only must do yearly vacation. Could be one of the best private family vacation spots anywhere. The lake is perfect, the house is perfect. We booked next year the day we left. It makes you want to move to the Trinity Alps. I wish I could keep it a secret and I wouldn't leave a comment if I didn't already know that they will be booked solid all summer anyway. No internet at the cabin but it is available about 200 yards away at the barn. Forget about your cell phone. You are in the Trinity Alps.

                            SkyCrest Lake is in a great location for scenery, fishing, river access, and just relaxation. We have stayed at SkyCrest with large groups (usually 24-30 people) for one week at a time. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, with all sorts of wild life to check out. Great location for river rafting access. All sorts of activities at the lake to keep you (or a group of kids) busy. Greg and Brenda have always gone out of their way to make us comfortable when we stay with them. The pictures on the listings don't do the place justice. The views are so amazing from up there it is hard to capture it in a picture. The property is very well-maintained. I would (and have) recommend this property to family and friends.

                            Another outstanding visit. We love this place and the owners are easy and wonderful in all ways. Totally underpriced for what you get. Go here - kids will love it. Our three(4, 6 and 9) couldn't get enough of the lake, mountains, animals, etc. Thank you!
