About The Owner

We are a couple of good friends who purchased the cabin to enjoy our winters skiing and snowboarding at kirkwood mountain resort. Over the years, we've discovered many great summer activities as well, such as wine tasting, hiking, kayaking and rock climbing in the area.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Pioneer

The cabin is a real getaway from city life. Set in a beautiful sugar pine and cedar forest, it's very peaceful. We enjoy the wilderness setting and its vicinity to outdoor activities.

What makes this cabin unique

hot tubing under the stars is a real treat!

Great for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was VERY helpful in resolving issues with booking (of my own making). Huge yard, epic games of hide and seek with the kids. House stayed fairly cool even during the heat wave. Kitchen had what was required to cook meals.

Although needing some updating, this place worked perfectly for my families gathering.

  • 4 of 5

Three sisters and two brothers plus a couple of spouses, stayed at this spacious home. We came for my Nephews wedding and this worked out perfectly. Luckily we aren't opposed to sharing sleeping space as this doesn't offer too much privacy. The grounds are fantastic and taking morning strolls are a must. Will get back with the owner about a few fixes but overall, clean and homey.
