Another Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from another great stay at the Winter Way Cabin. As always, it was clean, had all the amenities, and was nice and quiet. We primarily visit Pinecrest to fish so it's nice to be able to cook and take a hot shower everyday. We've been staying at the Winter Way cabin for a few years now and we've always had a great time.

Everything about was great - as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great weekend getaway for our 4 person family group. Cabin is in a great location with easy access and nice big back deck overlooking the meadow and river. Spacious, and very clean and all the basic necessities for cooking were provided. Dodge Ridge ski area is only 10-15 minutes away, and a very nice, less crowded low key resort compared to the large resorts around Lake Tahoe. The owner(s) were very communicative and quickly responded via email to question we had prior to our stay. We would definitely come back again.

The perfect snowy getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for my husband and I to take our two older kids (9,11) on a ski trip. From the moment we walked in the kids loved the cabin - they instantly got into their snow gear and starting sledding down the hill in the back. The property is gorgeous with a river running through it :) It was a great place to build a snowman and have snowball fights. The kids talked about wanting to move into a cabin just like this one and also wanted to make sure that if we visit the area again they want to stay in this cabin. It has the perfect mountain cabin ambience and it was priced great. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback, and we are so happy to hear that you had a 5-star stay. We know that the main oven and hot tub outages (due to PG&E issues related to a recent storm) were a disappointment to you, and you had to do some creative thinking to cook larger meals in the small oven. So it is great to know that other features of the cabin overcame that situation. Will be happy to see you again!

Great place for dogs and kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The owner was attentive to our needs. You will want 4 wheel drive if you are coming up during or after a storm. The owner kept the walkways snow free and plowed daily. We will definitely be coming back.

We loved the large porch and fire place.

The only thing we would change is that the ice machine was not working. Other than that GREAT!!!!

Owner's Response: That was a fast review! Thanks also for returning the cabin back to us in such nice clean condition. Yes, the ice maker in the otherwise fine refrigerator freezer has not worked for years. So we stock it with the old fashioned ice cube trays :) Hard to get used to having to fill those and allow time for the ice to freeze, so I notice that there is usually a partially used leftover bag of ice in the freezer. Good heads up for future guests. Thanks!
