Great ammenities for the whole family
Starting with a double-car garage, large equipped kitchen, dining room and living areas, this place had everything our 2 families needed. Very quiet neighborhood. Beds were comfortable, and there were heaters in every bedroom. Safety gates for families with small children and lots of games. We loved the playroom downstairs with the pool and air-hockey tables!
I wish they would include the linens for the same price.
And something that I didn't like was that we ended up paying a hundred dollars per night over the listed price, once you add taxes and all the extra fees, since it's managed by a Property Mgmt company on behalf of the owner. And we didn't figure this out until we were already in the booking process. Misleading! All properties should include all fees associated with the rental so customers can make informed decisions.
I hope the owners read this...the property is fabulous but they might be losing clients because of what I just said.
Hello, Jossie - thank you for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed the Serenity Now cabin in Dorrington. It's a wonderful cabin for the whole family to enjoy.
We agree about including linens, and are in the process of incorporating sheets and towels into all 100 cabins that we manage in the area. Please look for this amenity, coming soon!
We always seek to be 100% transparent about associated fees - damage protection, cleaning, a service charge, and - of course - taxes. If there was a lack of transparency in the booking process, we'll speak to our reps at VRBO. There are also third party fees from the booking site, and unfortunately we're not privy to those amounts. We appreciate you sharing this feedback with us, and will look into your concerns.

Very disappointing and I did not love it
It was clean and warm. Those are the best things I can say. Other than that, it was very disappointing. There was a pellet stove with no directions for use. The wi-fi password did not work. They never threw away any leftovers from former renters......clean diapers, unused hand lotion, etc. There were safety issues....outlets with no covers and live wires exposed. There were pieces of furniture with nearly falling off legs. The blankets were not the proper size, old, and worn. It was just drab, dark, and uninviting.
Cabin in the woods
Property well maintained located in a quiet area. Rooms clean and kitchen well stocked with cookware and utensils. The game room was a great bonus for added entertainment and loads of fun. Looking forward to a return trip.
Beautiful getaway in the CA Gold Country.
It felt as if we were in the middle of an ancient forest. The house and property were a good fit for our itinerary to explore nearby Calaveras Big Trees State Park, Arnold, CA, and the wine region in and around Murphys, CA. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen had a nice flow to it and the living room (including the TV) served well as our temporary "home base" each evening. The only slight glitch was that the barbecue did not light, but it just made us get out to a couple of great food destinations, i.e. "Sarafinas" in nearby Arnold and "Alchemie" in Murphys. We also saw a shooting star outside "Serenity Now" on one night. It was a memorable four days which we are grateful for.
Had a wonderful time, very cozy cabin! I would recommend visiting Serenity Now, I can't wait to go back!!
Eat off the floor clean and Family Friendly. I can't wait to return!
This house was amazing! We visited during the winter months and it was so convenient to have a garage to pull in to, rather than freezing our booties off unloading and loading the car.
The kitchen was charming and well stocked with everyhing you need to make a romantic meal for two or a feast for the extended family.
We loved the layout of the house, with a great kid area downstairs((pool table and a HUGE tv) and a place for adults to have a quiet conversation upstairs.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this charming house again!
Access to Big Trees Village Rec Center (Olympic sized pool, kiddie pool, big park/ BBQ area, tennis courts, snack bar). Close to Big Trees State Park and Bear Valley Ski Resort.
