What makes this Cabin unique

Enjoy the convenience of being so close to Heavenly Valley, you could return home to eat or rest. Spring and summer and fall are a great time to relax and enjoy the perennial creek garden and aspen trees have also given us years of enjoyment. There is nothing better than sleeping to the sounds of a running creek. We have also added a hot tub for your enjoyment!

                                                                I got nickel and dimed for carpet cleaning issue that was not caused by my presence.

                                                                Guston M.

                                                                Overall the location of the cabin itself is good. However, the interaction I had with the homeowner was not so good.

                                                                The evening I arrived I noticed that there was a small wet mark on the carpet. I didn't think much of it, as it looked as though someone had just cleaned a stain, and I assumed it would dry during my 36hour stay.

                                                                As part of my checkout arrangement I contacted the homeowner to let her know I was leaving and that had left some water bottles in the refrigerator for her next guest as a token of my appreciation. At that point I also notified her that the wet spot was in existence. She then thanked me for my stay and said that her son had spot cleaned the carpet prior to our arrival. Hours later receive a angry sounding email telling me that this spot was caused by me and that I put "too many towels" in the washing machine. I found this rude as I barely used the cabin; only to sleep and shower, not to mention I am doing her housekeeping for her by washing the towels. At that point I immediately called her, to let her know that the wet spot on the carpet was not caused by me or any of my guest, I've been apologized for "overloading" the washer. Seeming very flustered she questioned the number of people I had in the cabin I replied 4...as it stated on my rental agreement. Begrudgingly she excepted my apology and quickly hung up the phone. The following day I received an email saying that she will be deducting a carpet cleaning fee from my deposit for the area that was wet. I then responded once again and assured her that it was not caused by me. She of course did not believe me, essentially accusing me of lying. I told you that I have no other recourse but to leave her an unfavorable review.

                                                                So, enclosing the cabinet itself was decent, but the attitude and interaction of the owners...not so much! RENTERS BEWARE.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                First of all you were not "nickel and dimed!" Your entire deposit was returned. You were sent arrival instructions asking you to do a "walk through" upon your arrival and report anything out of order or unusual. You did not report anything, nor did you let me know you had arrived. I was personally in the cabin one hour before your arrival. There was not a "kitchen plate" sized stain in the hallway in front of the bathroom door. My son had cleaned something sticky off the floor in a totally different area. I would have left you a note.

                                                                Also, thank you for starting a 15 towel load of towels. There is clearly a note on the front of the washer requesting that no more than seven towels be washed in one load. I could barely pull them out and am happy the washing machine is not broken.

                                                                Of course I was flustered. I work hard to maintain a clean house and always inspect the cabin after the cleaning crew is done. I am prompt to reply with any Questions or concerns. The good news is that you and your buddies had a great stay in my cabin.

                                                                Wonderful weekend away

                                                                Lauren U.

                                                                We had a wonderful weekend staying at this house. The entire house was fully stocked, anything needed was here!

                                                                Clean, cozy, close

                                                                Erik J.Sacramento, CA

                                                                Loved this cabin, jacuzzi was a hit for everyone. Owner was very pleasant to work with . Great rates.

                                                                Great weekend stay!

                                                                Sean C.Sacramento, CA

                                                                This property was perfect for our friends-getaway weekend. There was enough room for everyone to hang out together as well as have our own rooms. The location was perfect for those that were hitting the slopes and those hitting the slot machines. And the hot tub was a perfect ending to those fun, long days. We had a great time and would recommend this place any time.

                                                                Amazing place.

                                                                The cabin was perfect for 5 of us. Very nice clean and great location. There is a creek in the back yard and Nat'l Forest land next door giving you a nice setting and view. This is off the main road up to Heavenly so while the road is busy, the main part of the house does not hear or see the traffic. Jacuzzi was a nice treat after ski day. The owner has snow removal and it was very necessary for our stay. I would stay again...

                                                                Great place for ski getaway
