Dorrington cabin description

Welcome to 'Hale Mauna', our 'Mountain Home'.

This 2,000+ square foot cabin in Big Trees Village has 3 bedrooms, a rec room/bedroom, a loft, and 2 full bathrooms. It can easily accomodate 10 of your closest friends and family for a fun, relaxing Sierra vacation. It's perfect for a multifamily vacation, couples retreat, or girls get-away. At 5,000 ft it offers beautiful snow during the winter and warm star-filled nights during the summer.

We purchased this cabin in 1997 and spent many wonderful summer and winter vacations with our kids and other families. Our kids and their friends all learned to ski/snowboard, fish, skip rocks, and hike with us. Now that they're grown, we find that we're not visiting as often, so started renting it out in 2012. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

You will love the open living room/dining room/kitchen layout on the main floor, surrounded by windows which showcase the beautiful trees. Gather round the redwood burl table to play games or have a glass of wine at the end of a busy day. Enjoy the warmth and flames from the sunken, glass-doored wood stove. Firewood is provided. Or curl up in what our kids named the 'book nook', a cozy unique spot under the stairs.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with a gas stovetop, pots/pans, coffee maker, toaster oven, and other appliances. To make it easier for you, we provide paper towels, ziplocs, foil, wrap, dish soap, staples, spices, and condiments. Both charcoal and gas BBQ's are available for your grillmaster to use. The cherry wood dining table seats 6-8.

There are 3 bedrooms (king, queen, 2 twins) and 2 full baths. Linens and towels are provided. The large upstairs rec room has 4 twin beds, a pool table which also converts to a ping pong table, video games, games, Lego's, and puzzles. Kids love it! The loft has a TV, DVD player, recliner, and game table. Free wi-fi throughout the cabin.

A deck wraps around 3 sides of the cabin, and you can enjoy sunning, reading, hot tubbing, or outdoor eating in the fresh mountain air. The attached 2 car garage includes a washer, dryer, and sink.

We are minutes from Big Trees State Park, numerous hiking trails, high Sierra Lakes, not to mention the shopping and wineries in Murphys.

It is breathtakingly beautiful in the winter when it snows. Bear Valley Ski Area is a short drive away, and the hot tub is a favorite spot after a full day of skiing and snowboarding. And don't forget to take a night time walk under the stars!

Email the owner with any questions, or call our rental management company to book directly. They are also available to help you with any questions or issues that may arise during your stay.

Maximum 10 guests, dogs welcome, no smoking.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About: I was born and raised in Hawaii, which inspired the name 'Hale Mauna'. 'Hale' means home or house. 'Mauna' means mountain. In Hawaiian, the adjective goes after the noun, thus the name 'Hale Mauna' means 'Mountain Home'.

              Why Dorrington:
              We loved this cabin the first time we saw it! Our kids were 7 and 10 at the time and in order to keep them occupied while we trooped through 8-10 cabins that we saw that weekend, we gave them a clipboard and had them rate each one. They called this cabin the one with the 'book nook', and it was #1 in their eyes too.
