About Darlene - A1 Vacations Customer Since July 1996

We have been serving renters for 33 years, with cabins of all sizes and from Sonora lodge to Pinecrest, Strawberry and Leland Meadows. From 1-7 bedrooms, sleeping 2-30, 1-4 baths. Great family fun vacation rentals. When we started 33 years ago the cabins didn't have TV, vcrs were new but we thought people would want the rest and relaxation of the great outdoors. The cabins had books and board games! There was no such thing as WiFi or cell phones. I still remember car phones in a bag in the 90's. Things have really changed since then. Now there's Verizon cell coverage. Originally I did it myself, booked, cleaned, hauled wood, shoveled snow. Then it became a family thing! My 7 kids grew up with the business. It's still very much a family business we all do our very best! 2093520161

4th year of our family's vacation in Cabin 11!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we noticed the upgrades first thing, hard wood flooring, granite counter tops, and the stainless double kitchen sink that really sparkled . My Mom seems surprised each year at the cleanliness and little delightful details she discovers; cupboards arranged super neatly, binder left for us describing events and history, new Weber grill, and her favorite: a super clean coffee maker :) We always feel really welcomed and make and effort to respect how we treat our rented domicile. We had to call manager with a few questions and her immediate responses/solutions demonstrate the hospitality of the cabin's charm. Darlene and her team helped us feel really safe, especially because we have some littles. We had a fantastic week-vacation!

Thank You, Paula Lozano et al

Home needs to be updated.

  • 2 of 5

The home is in need of some repair. There are issues with the windows, screen doors as well as a need to modernize the appliances throughout the property.

Owner's Response: Well that's interesting because the cabin has brand new hardwood floors, granite countertops, sinks, bathroom and fixtures. Is very nicely decorated. Has been well maintained as reviews say. I think its interesting that guests who are afraid they will get a bad review for not observing the rules try to hurt the owner who must make sure they follow the rules, for the safety of the cabin, guests and neighbors. We live in the forest and the rules are for a reason. The protection of our property. Darlene These are the kind of reviews we get on other sites as well. Great Weekend ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Had a great time with friends.The cabin was as advertised- spacious with plenty of room for a large group(14 in our group). The kitchen was great for all our cooking. Loved the deck and the game room :-). Darlene is a great host - very responsive. Overall great experience for all of us !!

Great stay at Pinecrest

  • 4 of 5

Been coming to Pinecrest for over 15 years. The rental met the needs of a growing adult family. The cabin had the space and rooms we needed. It was well cared for.

Only comments. The garbage can neeg to be stronger. We had bears on Thursday night. Went right through the plastic cans. Needed to clean up and take the garbage to the local dump for a fee. The kitchen cabinets had quite a few owner things in them.

Need to rearrange some for the stuff we brought. Drive way was tricky till you got the hang of it after a couple of trips..

Overall great week.

Owner's Response: Hi, so glad you enjoyed your stay! It is a wonderful place. We just did new wood floors, granite counter tops. We work really hard to maintain our cabins. Thank you for letting me know you noticed that. Yes it is the forest and we caution guests about trash and wildlife. Our information and phone contact are posted in the cabin as well as your booking information for any issues. We would have loved a call to assist you so you wouldn't have had to handle it yourself. See you again soon. You were lovely guests. It was a pleasure to serve you! Thanks Darlene

Good One to Stay

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained, neat and perfect fit for 10+ people. We were facing issues only with communication due to lack of signals but per owner's assistance we were well prepared. Before getting there we bought Verizon Hot-spot device, it helped us in many ways. We felt barbecue machine and kitchen's utensils are not enough for 10+ people other than this we enjoyed our stay with peaceful mind.

Thanks Darlene for all your quick responses which are directed us as planned.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a restful, peaceful time. We do want out guests to be prepared for their stay. We supply a lot information on the homeaway cabin amenities list and descriptions. Verizon does get service up here which helps for those who still have some work to do on vacation. I know how that is. Thanks for your kind words. The cabin is very special. It was a pleasure to serve you! Thanks, Darlene

Family friendly cabin

  • 4 of 5

The home worked well for our group, 3 couples (1 with an infant). The kitchen was functional and had a table for six near the kitchen area and a large table on the deck. The bedrooms and bathroom were fairly basic, but the bedrooms were a good size. The activity room downstairs has a 1/2 bathroom and that was helpful. Overall a cabin that worked for our visit to the area. Close to Pinecrest Lake and area camps.
