Property description

We have great news!!! About 1/3 of mile away is our NEW 3 bedroom Dogwood house. VRBO 922051
A brand new AC/heater, wood stove and a gigantic deck. Of course still dog friendly! This will help us accommodate the ever growing number of guest that value the nature experience that Whispering Pines has to offer.

Check out our 25, 33, now 36 5 star reviews, and growing!
We earned most of these in our two years of sharing the Cobbin with our guests. The reviews are unbiased testimony of our guests experience.

We have reduced our damage deposit to $200 due to the care our guest have shown in using the cabin. Your Security Deposit will be refunded within a day or two. Most often on the day you leave.

We do not charge extra for people or pets. We include that in the rental price. We do charge extra for cleaning. We keep our Cobbin very clean. A 5 hour clean is done between each guest. A clean environment is very important to us. Obviously that is working. Most all of our guests mention this in their reviews.

The Cobbin and surrounding area was blessedly saved from the Valley Fire. It is so amazing that you can barely tell there was a fire from our property, although it was stopped 50 feet away.

With the large expanse of windows the Cobbin offers the feel of living in the trees, similar to a tree house. The Cobbin in Whispering Pines is a place to unwind and reconnect with nature. Enjoy the peace, serenity and privacy. Due to all the rain you can now hear the spring that feeds water to all the houses in the area. This is what you will experience when you visit our cozy Cobb Mountain cabin, lovingly referred to as ' The Cobbin'. Take advantage of our early check in of any time after 6 am, and out late check out of 6 pm.

The Cobbin is a remodeled 1940's vacation cabin on half an acre, surrounded by over 100 redwood, pine, dogwood and oak trees. It features a large fenced backyard, perfect for your two or four-legged companion(s). Watch them frolic from your rocking chair on the deck. Enjoy the sun rise over the mountain with a (complimentary) morning cup of coffee. This dog-friendly retreat comes with a fully equipped large kitchen, roomy bathroom with a claw foot tub, washer and dryer, and a cozy bedroom. The living room is well appointed with a NEW sofa/ double bed and cozy chairs, perfect for curling up with a book or gazing at the trees through the large expanse of windows. At night choose a movie from the large DVD library, over 150 and growing, amuse yourself with a deck of cards, a board game, puzzle, or venture out to one of the several restaurants nearby.
Your dog will appreciate the large comfy dog bed, raised feeding station, toys and treats. For your convenience there is also an x-pen and baby gate at the kitchen.

You will find the Cobbin impeccable when it comes to clean. When we say clean we mean clean! A five hour clean is done inbetween every guest. We take extra care because we do encourage pets. The backyard is patrolled before each visit and pet bedding washed. Included in the list of house cleaning duties is the front and back decks are swept and parts of the yard raked.

Nearby is a lovely nine hole golf courses, grocery store, bohemian coffee house ( with its own book store), Brickoven pizza ( our favorite, menu in kitchen drawer), restaurants, boutiques, pub, gas station and post office. A 10-20 minute drive down one side of Cobb Mountain will take you to Twin Pines Casino, Hidden Valley 18 hole golf course, and Middletown. A 30 minute drive down the other side will take you to Clear Lake (perfect for boating , fishing and bird watching). There are many small wineries and more small towns around the Lake to explore, along with 11 free boat ramps. The driveway at the Cobbin can more than fit a vehicle and boat trailer.
Located just 2 hours from Sacramento and 2 hours from San Francisco it makes for a pleasant drive to Cobb Mountain. Take a 2 hour day trip to the coast and check out Mendocino and Fort Bragg.
Check out Robert Louis Stevenson State Park about 15 miles from the house, towards Calistoga, for a beautiful hike, sorry but not dog friendly.
Looking for dog friendly hikes, checkout Dogtrekker.com type in Lake County, Ca. Highland Springs and other dog spots are listed.

The cell phone reception at ' The Cobbin' is a bit sketchy- the best reception is on the back deck. The reception has improved in the last 6 months. Text reception is best, phone calls and Internet are about %80 successful now, mattering on the weather. Free wifi can be found at the Mountain High Coffee House a 5 minute drive away.

We think you will be so happy enjoying the fresh air, peace and solitude that you will soon forget about surfing the internet.

To be clear, the rental is for the whole cabin , large fenced in backyard on 1/2 acre. No one else is on the property. We do recommend , for comfort purposes, a max of 4 adults and 2 dogs. The owners can be reached 24/7 if needed. Response time ASAP.
We look forward to sharing our Cobbin with you. Be prepared for your kids, your pet and yourself to fall in love with the Cobbin. It truly is heavenly.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I have lived in Petaluma for 35 years and have enjoyed using VRBO for our get a ways the last 20 years with my husband and our dog. We fell in love with this cabin while staying at a near by VRBO house while on vacation. The Cobbin is now our number one vacation destination, always.

Why the Owner Chose Middletown, CA, USA:
First of all it was love at first sight(: I grew up in Washington state and always respected and loved Mother Nature, especially the trees. I always dreamed of having a cabin someday. Well sometimes dreams do come true! For me it is the Cobbin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Starting with our early check in, you may arrive as early as 6AM and are welcome to stay as Late as 6 PM. I have rented off of VRBO for 20 years and the late day check in , and the check out before 10, were always inconvenient for me and my husband. I want you to arrive at your convenience and leave at your convenience. The expanse of windows is like living in the trees. Yet the remodel has been so well done the house is a wonderful blend of old and new. The dual pane windows and excellent insulation make it comfortable all year around. The peace and solitude surrounding the Cobbin is incredible. It makes you want to just soak it all in, and in. I could stay on the back deck and watch mother natures gift to us for eternity. The birds singing, the sunlight caressing the trees, the trees swaying, it is all captivating. The toughest part is leaving!
