About Darlene - A1 Vacations Customer Since July 1998

We have been serving renters for 32 years, with cabins of all sizes and from Sonora lodge to Pinecrest, Strawberry and Leland Meadows. from 1-7 bedrooms, sleeping 2-30, 1-4 baths. Great family fun vacation rentals. When we started 32 years ago the cabins didn't have TV, vcrs were new but we thought people would want the rest and relaxation of the great outdoors. The cabins had books and board games! There was no such thing as WiFi or cell phones. I still remember car phones in a bag in the 90's. Things have really changed since then. Originally I did it myself, booked, cleaned, hauled wood, shoveled snow. Then it became a family thing! My 7 kids grew up with the business. It's still very much a family business we all do our very best!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks again, the view was great, the cabin was comfortable for our family group. We found it clean and inviting. We had a fun at Doge Ridge, Leland Snow Play and the Ice Rink was fun for the kids. We will be back.

Nice and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cabin with two other families, 6 adults and 6 kids in total. The kids had a lot of fun, we went skiing nearby, and even enjoyed some snow during the weekend. We were able to take this kids walking around the area where the cabin is, and they were able to play in the snow. It was a great time for both kids and adults.

Pros: good social spaces for multiple families, kid friendly, plenty of beds, clean cabin, lots of fun winter activities nearby.

Cons: the "game room" where many of the beds are was a little chilly (we had no need to use it though), the mattresses were a little soft for my taste, no/bad cell phone signal with most carriers in the area.

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin and amazing location! The cabin is very spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean upon out arrival! The only thing I would suggest is to have more parking, it is a 16 person cabin and it definitely needs an extra spot. Great experience overall! Definitely recommend for a fun family weekend!

Beautiful view, cozy and nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

The view from the porch was stunning! I loved to sit out there and drink coffee in the morning, watching the light move over the trees. Beautiful! The cabin was conveniently located about ten minutes from the lake, which was also gorgeous. The cabin had comfy, rustic feel. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. We had a great time!

Great cabin !

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was nice and it's big for 16 people to stay in. It has a nice set up especially the gameroom. The front porch was nice right next to the grill. Plus I loved how it was 10 mins away from pinecrest lake! I enjoyed it.

Awesome! Cabin number 12 was perfect for our party. It had plenty of space and was big enough to keep the kids and the parents separate enough areas for us to all have a good time. We also enjoyed the air hockey table and the foosball table.

The only improvement I can suggest is to be a little bit more clear in the instructions for new guests. By this I mean that I was a little confused about whether there would be sheets on the bed, or towels for all of us. Another suggestion, and I am not sure if anything can be done about this, is that parking is very limited. When you have a cabin that can accommodate 16 people, limiting the cars to just two, makes things a little bit difficult.

But, I must say these are very very small annoyances, and overall we are extremely happy with the facility .

Thank you,

– Paul
