Jewel purchased this cabin in 2006
Dorrington is nestled in the trees. Driving from the Bay Area is a breeze. It is not crowded (like Tahoe) and the elevation at 5000 feet has just the right amount of snow and perfect temperatures year round.
We love to cross-country ski and snowshoe in the winter. We can walk or ski right into Calaveras Big Trees State Park via a fire road just up the street. Big Trees State park has miles of trails to explore. In the summer we love to picnic and hike at the Stanislas River. There are many hiking trails near Bear Valley. We also kayak on Alpine lake and swim or fish in Arnold at White Pines Lake. The Dorrington area is very quiet. Our children love the caverns in Murphy's. Murphy's also has excellent restaurants and wine tasting events.
This cabin is in a perfect location. Close to Bear Valley yet near a little town with plenty of restaurants, shops, stores, etc. It has plenty of room in this 2 bedroom cabin that is set up perfectly for a small family or 2 couples. Plenty of snow around cabin for kids and a wonderful deck out back. We can't wait to return to this little Gem we found. Thanks so much for opening up your home.
Cabin was very clean and comfortable. Game room mad it very enjoyable for our children. We spent Christmas at the cabin and we had everything we needed to cook our Christmas dinner. Scott was a great host and communicated throughout the process. The cabin had many games and movies to watch . Pool table and ping pong was a blast. This is a great cabin for families and friends. Easy to find and close enough to run to town if needed, Also very close to Bear Valley Ski Resort. Roads were cleared quickly after snow which made travel in and out easy. Thanks Scott we had a blast!
This was a great place to stay with our kids! Very clean house in a great location. Pool table/ping pong table was a hit with the whole family. The house is in close proximity to Bear Valley Ski Resort and lots of sledding as well. Nice neighborhood and neighbors. Owners were very easy to deal with and accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend! We hope to visit again soon.
Our family had a wonderful time in your lovely home. It was perfect for our family of four (2 adults and 2 kids). Your cabin is very clean and comfortable. The kids enjoyed playing pool and ping pong too. It was so nice to sit in the family room and look out at the trees. Definitely a relaxing get away!
My family (2 adults, 2 kids) had a great time! The cabin had everything and then some. It was great to get away from the daily hustle of computers and cell phones. We will be back this summer!!!
We're a family of 4 with two young boys, ages 7 and 4. This cabin was *perfect* for us! Was nice to unplug and get away from everything. No cable, no internet, just trees, snow, a great library of videos and DVD, and board games galore. Cabin was clean and accommodating. We hope to visit again next year!
Walking distance to Big Trees State Park, hiking and cross country ski trails. Towns of Murphys and Arnold are down the road with many activities.
