Guestbook comments from the owner

My family just recently stayed up in your cabin in Pioneer this past weekend and left on Wednesday. First of all, we wanted to say thank you! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful home with us. Your house was amazing. The space was unbelievable. All of the bedrooms gave everyone privacy and space. When adults were up in the evening the kids couldn't hear our laughs and voices due to the doors and privacy of each bedroom. Your home is absolutely perfect for large families with kids. We used your kitchen for almost all our meals and loved the wonderfully stocked cabinet of spices, which we added too! :-) You had so many pots and pans to choose from as well as dinner plates and silverware. If we come back to Northern California we will definitely contact you about staying in our home again.

A few more things to share, we loved sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beautiful deep forest cover while sipping wine in the evenings. It was almost like living inside of a tree house. The amount of board games, not to mention the game room gave our kids plenty to keep themselves busy during our trip. The kids did try to go swimming in the pond, but it was so cold they only lasted a few minutes. It was humorous trying to watch them go waist deep in that cold, spring fed mountain water. Again, thank you so much for allowing us into your home. It was amazing.

Very nice property with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this property was fantastic. There were lots of things to do at the property as well as the surrounding area. It was a 20 minute drive to Jackson Rancheria casino resort and downtown Jackson.

There was high-speed Internet, cable TV, game room, three levels each with their own restroom and living room. There was also a pond and hiking in the backyard. This was very private and secluded.

We found lots of things to do in the area like go to the snow and the black chasm. There were plenty of good restaurants along the way. Will definitely stay here again.

Very cool cabin in nice setting

  • 4 of 5

Our stay over Christmas was very nice - we had six people, and tons of room.

The game room was great, and the firewood was dry and the stove worked great in that room.

The only items that we were missing were extra blankets for cold nights and some baking pans that could be used for lasagna or scalloped potato type dishes.

We did get the DVD player working and enjoyed some movies that we brought up to watch-

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed here for our holiday for the last 7 years. The space is perfect for a large group, the extra playroom is a real bonus. The beds are comfortable, and the couch in the living room provide a lot of seating. The owner and people who take care of the property are a joy to work with and always reachable. We'll be back!!
