By Bianca Germany (Riverside, CA)
Thank you Diane and Bill for sharing your Serenity Nest with My family and I. We had a wonderul time. So nice to get away for the hustle and bustle of every day life. The views from the cabin are beautiful. Very pretty sunsets! The owners have done a great job making it feel like a home away from home.

Diane is the best! She is the most trusting person I have ever met. Her hospitality was wonderful. 'Serenity Nest' is the perfect name for this wonderful 'hideaway'.Our family would like to thank you for sharing your 'cozy' home with us. We had a great time celebrating my 40th birthday in your home. We look forward to coming back soon. Cuevas Family!

****Great Get Away****, December 28, 2009
By Rosie Ware (West Hills, CA)
Perfect Family Christmas Get away!!We loved the place & the owners! Cabin is very clean, cute and supplied with so many things I had forgetten..Thank you Diane!! We had snow fights, made snowmans and enjoyed sleding. We had a WHITE CHRISTMAS:) Our family of five made special memories we will never forget! We will be going back...

~~Romantic Getaway...Perfect!, September 20, 2009
By Bob & Diane (Rancho Cucamonga, CA)
How special! We loved the place & the owners. My hubby & I went for a getaway, were able to have 2 nights away, but this whet our appetites for another stay...we are going back! I might even do a girls getaway too. Our ride up was great but if you have a large SUV be sure let the owners know so they can give you the best driving directions. We so enjoyed the entire place & loved sitting on the deck watching the sunset, enjoying our coffee, the perfect weather, and each other! It was like home away from home, the decorating was so up to date and pleasing to the even smelled good!

~~A perfect getaway, September 10, 2009
By Kate Downey (San Luis Obispo, CA USA)
The cabin was absolutely perfect. Secluded, but not too far from the lake and town. The house was nice and cozy... we felt right at home. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience

We found the cabin to be very, very nice and clean and full of wonderful little details that the owner supplies which make you feel right at home. She was super flexible and trusting and we were honored to stay at her place. She did all in her means to go out of her way to make things easy, especially when I realized I'd left some stuff behind and she mailed it out to me no extra cost, in spite of my offer to pay for my mistake. How often does that happen? Great space and owner.

We appreciate ALL of you - Thank You!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Hi, my name is Diane Zeman. My husband of more than 20 years, Bill, and our 2 son's Victor and Grant have yearned to escape the cement cities on many occasions, so on Sept. 6th 2009... Bill and I came to Crestline on yet another whim... then... we saw this house - fell in love with the view and made an offer that very evening! That was the same week Lehman Brothers went bankrupt... This house meant so much to us, we took the risk and offered asking price... Yes the market has gone down a lot since then, but we still have no regrets. We feel Serenity Nest is a gift, not of ourselves, so we are paying it forward and sharing it with others hoping it will be a small home away from home for our guests as well. We truly desire you to escape the cement cities and find serenity while here. I have always wanted to open a bed and breakfast, this is the next best thing to it. Maybe someday... We are business owners of Dependable Mini Blind and Window Cleaning out of Chino CA for over 20 years Bill has been the driving force behind that. Bill is also a part time teacher for Cal Poly and Citrus Community College, he is just thrilled to be teaching history, following his passions! I get to manage Serenity Nest, assisting you however possible is my hearts desire! I also work at a commercial roofing company out of Pomona, CA. Most importantly to me is my number one commitment and job at being a wife and being a mom! My boys and Bill always come first to me! I value the home more than anything! As you can see we are busy people but we truly enjoy just being simple.

              Why the Owner Chose Crestline:
              We chose to buy Serenity Nest the moment we saw it, after searching for many years for homes up and down CA coastline, this was 'THE ONE' Close enough to commute for us and so many others out of the LA area. Easiest mountain community to drive to, especially during snow and winter conditions. The house has a spectacular view and is beautifully secluded! YET only 1.5 miles from Lake Gregory. Snow Valley is 12 miles near for skiing, which Bill and Grant have been enjoying so much since last year when our youngest learned how to ski! We just couldn't resist!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The most spectacular view on the mountain in our opinion. When we visit here, we 'reset'. We remember the things that matter the most to us, our relationships, family, friends, nature, good food (always seem to taste better here, like when you camp!), our earth, our God as we know and understand him to be. Serenity Nest .... Serenity with a birds eye view on things!
