Best Place in Cold Springs

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at the property and we just love it. Very modern, all amenities, and huge flat screen TV which came in handy for Super Bowl weekend. Comfortably fits 2 families, and very close to Dodge Ridge, Leland Snow Play, and Mia's restaurant on the main highway. Owners are very accommodating and everything is set up when you arrive. Kids can also play in the snow off the back and sides of the house. We will definitely be back!

Great rental for Dodge Ridge area

  • 5 of 5

Finding good accommodation around Dodge Ridge is hard, and I hesitate to write this review as I know this is only going to make it harder.

This is a terrific rental property, one of the very best we've rented. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids between the ages of 7 and 14) slotted in just fine. The place is very quiet, the three bedrooms are perfect, and the open plan living area is very cosy. The kids especially appreciated the huge TV for watching movies after a day on the slopes. Kitchen has everything you might need without being cluttered, and like the rest of the property, was spotlessly clean.

Outside, as the owner makes clear, the steep drive might be tricky in the snow without 4WD. But otherwise it's really a breeze. Property also has plenty of space around it for the kids to play. And there are great food options nearby -- Mia's wood fired pizzas are awesome. If you're renting ski or snowboarding equipment, Heidi's is just up the road and offers a much more relaxing -- and cheaper -- rental experience than renting at Dodge Ridge.

Overall, a perfect family rental. The owner, JoAnn, was a delight to work with, even making a courtesy call to check everything was OK once we'd arrived. Thanks JoAnn!

Owner's Response: Hi Jeremy, thanks so much for the lovely review. So glad you and family had a great time. Please keep us in mind for future rentals. There is lots of snow this winter season (yeah finally) and spring, summer, fall seasons are also beautiful in the Pinecrest area (hiking,swimming,boating, fishing, wine tasting, etc.) Take care and thanks again! Regards, JoAnn

We've been going to visit Pinecrest Lake every summer for many years. This cabin has nice bedrooms and plenty of space for the family. Hoping to come again soon and stay for a longer time.

Great cabin, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family and another just finished our stay at the cabin. Lots of space, comfortable beds, great family room. Only about 10 minutes or so to dodge ridge skiing. We didn't have to deal with lots of snow near the property so not a problem for us. Mia's restaurant is about 5 minutes away when you finally get tired of cooking in. Climbing the steps prepared us for the slopes. Owner was pleasant, informative and responsive. We recommend this place to anyone checking it out.

Nice cabin near Dodge Ridge

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a couple days to ski at Dodge Ridge, which is a short drive away. JoAnn was nice and easy to deal with. The cabin was comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. The driveway is very steep and there is no garage, so if it snows or gets icy you'll need chains to back up down the driveway or park at the bottom. Also, there are about two flights of stairs to get up to the front door so you'll be a little out of breath by the time you get up there. The appliances in the kitchen are rather loud, and the gas oven gave off an odor when used. Overall though, the cabin was nice and we enjoyed our stay and it was a good location for Dodge Ridge.

Owner's Response: Unfortunate traveler did not know how to use our gas range/oven. We immediately had oven checked for any gas leaks/smells upon being informed by traveler on his departure date, and not beforehand, and everything was fine. Turning on gas oven does emit a smell initially but it disappears in timely manner. All appliances are in good working condition. Traveler was informed about risks not having a 4-wheel drive and property description states no garage on property.

Wonderful Winter Wonderland

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family getaway here after a big snowfall. The kids had a fabulous time sledding, both next to the cabin and at the huge "public" hill about 2.5 miles west on 108 (check it out!). We're not skiers, don't know how far it is to good skiing, but we did go to Leland's Snow Play (inner-tubing hill). Kids enjoyed that too, but very crowded!

The cabin is very clean, very nicely furnished, comfy and warm. Fully stocked kitchen with lots of staples in place made it easy for us to make the food we like. (For serious coffee drinkers like us, the very small coffeemaker was a slight frustration.)

Joann is helpful, a great communicator, and easygoing.

I would have been grateful for a little more guidance to local shopping, eating, attractions, etc. I had to figure out on my own that the Twain Harte Market is a nearby, well-stocked grocery store with plenty of gourmet stuff to satisfy any Bay Area foodie.

Excellent experience overall, I recommend it.
