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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Darlene, just wanted you to know that we so appreciated your cabin and the way it is set up for big family groups. We will be back for our next get together. The space is amazing and the bunk house was great. Everyone ran around picking their rooms and getting familiar with everything. You did a great job preparing for us, so thanks again

"It's Slumber Party"!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 26, had a wonderful time. The only downfall with no fault to the Owner, was the weather, we went Labor Day weekend 2017, with unusual temperatures in the upper 90's to 100. Fortunately it would cool off in the evenings. There are fans for every room plus some family members brought their own. I learned from reading the reviews there was no A/C, it would have made if more comfortable during the day I understand this was not typical weather, is the reason for no A/C, it was better than the valley which was 110+. My niece called it a "Slumber Party" hence the tittle, Thanks Darlene

Family Reunion and Anniversary

  • 4 of 5

Pros. This cabin is located in a perfect spot, conveniently situated near a gas station, the local restaurant, beach, outdoor theater, etc. There are also many places to walk and hike, to enjoy nature at it's best.

More Pros. The kitchens and eating areas are the best part of this cabin. We cooked and ate together, and every night, we had games, competitions and puzzles in the dining area. Having 2 kitchens and 2 washers and dryers were wonderful bonuses! We also loved having the board games, books, towels, bedding, and many many many kitchen items provided at the cabin. These were so important, as we had family members from infant to 70s. There was something for everyone to enjoy.

A major con. The cabin is big, but looks like 2 spaces put together, which left half of our family wondering why they got the "old" side of the cabin vs. the "great" side. One side has 2 lovely rooms, with it's own entertaining area, wonderful bathroom, sliding doors to each patio and living room area, etc. The other side had 2 cramped hot rooms, with 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, it was extremely cramped, and the 1/2 bath sliding door had a broken lock which scratched a couple of times, (finding the 2 electric fans in the cabin for this side was like finding treasure.) On a much brighter side, we raided the other side every moment we could, and spent some time with each other, as we planned.

Good old family memories!

Owner's Response: Hi, so glad you had a great time. It is a wonderful place. Thanks for letting me know. One side has direct sun other shade. Thanks to all the tree removal the last year. The original side is where the fantastic dining area is. The 3 sections are a big plus. The lower section is always cooler. We have many fond family memories as well. Now you have yours. See you again next time. It was a pleasure to serve you! Thanks, Darlene

Summer cabin with no AC :(

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed with this cabin deceptively not disclosing that the entire bunk house and half the main home (kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms and bathroom) has no central air or wall unit...everyone was hot and miserable. The kitchen literally looks and is the size of a camp trailer sized so though it advertsizes to fit more than 20 good luck trying to cook for that many.

Owner's Response: Hello, sorry you couldn't enjoy the cabin and review it honestly. There are 2 kitchens neither are travel trailer size. I live in a trailer so I know. The cabins are not advertised with AC. There's fans in every room and bunk house. We sleep with our windows open and The mountains cool breeze. I'm very sorry you didn't take advantage of the cabins ability to serve up to 30 people. Thank you to all my past guests who have thoroughly enjoyed their time at the reunion cabin. Thanks, Darlene

Great place to come and relax. Alot of activities nearby and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We came over the weekend and had a great time with everyone. This place is big and have a lot of space for eveybody to sleep in.

Have 2 spacious kitchen top and bottom floor with a big living room. The patios are great for relaxing outside and cooking. There are alot of activities to do nearby. Fishing, hiking, nearby food n store. We recommend eating at Mia's pizza which is like 5 to 10 min drive. Great pizza and food. There is a lake nearby too like 15 min drive. Overall we had a blast and we recommend this place to anybody who wants to come and enjoy family time.
