Cute cabin/big yard with good location but needs maintenance
Cute cabin in good location. Fun to walk to the great Camp Nelson Tavern and drive to beautiful Sequoia forests for hiking nearby. Large fenced yard with fire pit and BBQ, great for dogs. Quaint mountain-themed decor inside with lots of books provided. Sheets smelled fresh but other than that the cabin had barely been cleaned prior to our arrival - hairs in bathtub, dust on every surface, large cobwebs. Shower had very poor water pressure. Pans were scratched up beyond use. I informed the owner of these maintenance issues as well as a sewage smell upstairs by voicemail and two emails but never received a response. If I had received a proactive response I would have spared them this negative review.
Nice quaint Cabin
Peaceful are, nice cabin, great for kids and pets.
brought a friend from Indiana who had never seen the mountains...he was awed by the vistas...and the cabin...wow! warm, welcoming, had everything we needed.....beautiful views from the loft windows in the morning, nice firepit, cozy couches...what more can I say!! convenient to the Tavern, great for walks and of course, naps, thereafter....thank you
We stayed between Christmas and New Year’s with our son and daughter and my son’s girlfriend. They are in college. The goal was to have an “off the grid” rest with games and reading and laughter and hopefully snow. All of these expectations were met. The cabin was more spacious than we imagined it would be. With five adults it never felt crowded. The kitchen had all the requisite equipment and the dining table made a great game table as well. Enjoyed sitting and watching the snowfall. We even heated up the bbq, and built a snow fire in the pit. The heating was amazing ,and we were never uncomfortable, except the upstairs people who got a little warm in the loft when the hot air rose. Camp Nelson is a charming area and Bark Cabin a real gem.
Recommendations for guests: Bring all sorts of paper products and food storage wraps. We had to go to the store and buy toilet paper on day two. If coming in winter bring a small shovel and chains, or a four wheel drive vehicle. Kind of hairy on one part of the road which we nicknamed the little hill of death right before you reach the cabin. The stairs to the loft are narrow. My husband and I elected to sleep downstairs.

We reside in San pedro,ca and now I want to retire at Camp Nelson. I thank the great team at VRBO that takes care of the old cabin for the style and character you gave it. We'll rent again soon. One tiny pet peeve, the chess game was missing the white queen. The cabin was already packed with linens and blankets and anything you'll need in the kitchen. Again thank you for having us. Mike Campbell and Family.
Such a quaint little Cottage
We have been up to Camp Nelson for the last 20 years. I have always loved the bark cabin. We spent Easter there this year and had a blast. The kids had an egg hunt in the back fenced in yard, we roasted marshmallows and made smores, and played corn hole in the front yard. The cabin was very well stocked for cooking my Easter ham. Plenty of linens, and the place was spotless. The agent was very friendly and even came to meet us. Thank you.
