                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We are a couple of good friends who purchased the cabin to enjoy our winters skiing and snowboarding at kirkwood mountain resort. Over the years, we've discovered many great summer activities as well, such as wine tasting, hiking, kayaking and rock climbing in the area.

                          Why the Owner Chose Pioneer:
                          The cabin is a real getaway from city life. Set in a beautiful sugar pine and cedar forest, it's very peaceful. We enjoy the wilderness setting and its vicinity to outdoor activities.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          hot tubing under the stars is a real treat!
