Charming Cabin in Quiet Area
Charming Cabin in Quiet Area
Our family stayed in this cabin during the summer. The kids had a blast at the pool and we enjoyed strolls in the surrounding forests. There are about a dozen or so cabins in that neighborhood, so it's small, quiet and very safe. The cabin is a couple of hours drive from the East Bay, easy to get to, without running into the traffic on I-80. The cabin itself has plenty of room, a full kitchen and with a deck for barbequing. There's a small shopping center a few miles away that has grocery stores and resrtaurants. Overall it was a great experience for us and we'll definately go back.

About the owner: I own a coffee shop in SF. 2 Kids with lots of friends, love swimming, hiking, and mountain biking. Fishing sometimes if your patient enough.. Rock-climbing down by the River is getting tougher with age. always loved having friends over having late night walks under the stars is definitely a unique thing for us City people.
Why the Owner Chose Dorrington:
I've been camping in Calaveras county for about 18 years, Six years ago we visited fiends that have a cabin up in Dorrington. we saw the listing of our current place. it had a swimming pool and three large bedrooms with bunk bed, the kids loved it, lots of area for sledding. and we bought it.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Sometimes we go up for the weekend and we rarely see any body, the drive through the Valley is incredible, less hectic than going up to Tahoe, especially in the ski season, in winter it takes about 3 - 3.5 hrs from San Francisco. that is with few stops for Gas and In-N-Out in Tracy, It's a tradition with the Kids. The place is manages through country houses HOA, witch takes care of the are, it's secured with street lights, the swimming pools is always heated and cleaned, the plow the streets and drive ways, which makes it very easy when you get up there on Friday night in the middle of the snow, the kids are passed asleep and you don't have to shovel any snow, just few steps and your in.
