  • FANTASTIC deck, wonderful stay, very secluded

    "Stayed here with a few friends for a birthday weekend - and LOVED the house. We spent most of the time out on the very large deck. The pictures don't do it justice - it is perched high in the trees (as the name suggests) and quickly became our preferred area to be. We used the barbeque (complete with extra propane and all the tools you would need) and enjoyed using the outdoor table for dining. The amenities were great - complete kitchen (not many condiments/spices though like I've seen in other VRBOs so come prepared if you'll be cooking), plenty of extra towels, pillows, and blankets, and laundry room equipped with detergent. We didn't use the pool table although it was fun to have an extra area to lounge. We had no problems with the wifi and enjoyed watching the Olympics (although cable channels are limited and movie selection is as well, although there are DVDs and some video tapes provided). If staying for a long time or with a large party, you might find the rooms a bit small and crowded. Otherwise the beds were very comfortable. Our other favorite part of the house was the location - only a neighbor on one side and we could barely even tell. The deck is very private and the house is off any main roads and very quiet and peaceful. It is a bit farther from the lake than other houses listed on VRBO, but that was no problem for us. Be warned however - we had to pay $25 per car to enter the Pine Mountain Lake area, a fact I would have liked to know before booking. Fantastic stay overall, would love to come back in the future!!"

  • This should be the new standard of glamping, Home in the woods.

    "The driveway was a little rough & you have to look carefully to find the turn off. Also to follow the arrows because it is truly a home in the woods with multiple paths into those woods. Inside was very clean and vermin free. The pictures don't do justice as to how large the space is. The amenities and television were also a plus. Woods to explore around the house. We rented a boat, fished and swam in Pinecrest lake (20 min away). We also went horseback riding at Aspen Meadows Pack station (33 min away) at a affordable price. We consider ourselves campers for a long time, but as I get older I knew I needed more comfort. I tried glamping in a bungalow, eh, it was ok. This, this was great. I spoke to the owner about how we wanted to bring our fire pit and the logistics of how we would take care, and he allowed it. It made for great evenings."

  • Randy and Tuesday R.

    "I have to tell you, this cabin totally exceeded what I expected! I love how the only thing you needed to bring was sheets, towels, (food and personal items) everything else was provided! My kids and grandson loved it.. Especially the basketball hoop ( yes they had the basketball there) and the volleyball net.. My dogs love the huge backyard.. I totally recommend!"

  • Excellent place for large group

    "If you have need of accommodations for a large group of people in the Sierra foothills, I don't see how you could do any better than the Jolly Tar. It lives up to its name precisely because it is so clean and well-equipped that it makes your stay there convenient and carefree. Even during the heat wave, the swamp coolers kept it totally comfortable. It also affords a great deal of privacy with its many private bedrooms. The only unusual arrangement is on the lower level where the one bathroom serving the two bedrooms and pull-out couch in the living room in between is a private bath off one of the bedrooms. This necessitates the other guests to tiptoe through a private bedroom to get to the bathroom or go up a spiral staircase to access the bathroom on the main floor above. Honestly, this is a minor issue that would come up only if the downstairs is packed full. We had every bedroom in use, but there were still more bed space and couches. You could easily and comfortably sleep 20 or more. We had dinner for about 25 people one night, and there was enough room in the fridge and all the kitchen amenities needed. There is also plenty of parking on the property. It was absolutely perfect for our reunion group, and I highly recommend it. Thanks so much-- now that we know there's a place that works so well, we hope to come again in another year or two and make it a habit."
