Property description

Located in the Big Trees area, this Arnold/Dorrington house comfortably sleeps 14. There are 4 downstairs bedrooms, all with a queen bed (rooms are all equal sized) plus a 5th bedroom in the loft with 2 queen beds and 2 twins (bunk bed style). Stocked with fun games (upstairs loft area with Ping Pong, Air Hockey and Foosball) for the kids and a large common area downstairs, you can host a large group without feeling cramped. In the winter, this is the closest stop to Bear Valley and in the summer, you're minutes away from the Stanislaus River and Big Trees State Park and a short drive to Murphys (wine tasting, caving and more). We have a welcome book at the cabin highlighting activities in the area, as well as some fun ideas for in the cabin. Hope you enjoy your stay! (For families, this house has been 'baby-proofed' with safety gates, high chairs (x2), toys and pack-n-play (x2) available).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We wanted a house up in the mountains to bring our family to over the years. We're excited about hosting friends and family and making lots of memories!

Why the Owner Chose Dorrington, CA, USA:
We love the layout of this house, although we spend most of the time on the back deck in the summer. While it's right off the highway, it feels secluded (and there's no road noise) and provides a great spot close to skiing, Stanislaus River and all kinds of activities

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lots of room! 4 equal sized bedrooms (so no fighting over who gets which one) as well as a loft bedroom upstairs with two queen beds and two twin loft beds
