ENCHANTMENT - CABIN IN THE WOODS

Pollock Pines Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enchantment is the ideal vacation home if you enjoy a quiet, serene, mountainous environment. The charming A-frame cabin is both romantic and family friendly. It is located on 3 beautifully wooded acres full of pine trees and madrones unique to this elevation of 3,200 feet. The property is beautifully landscaped with waterfalls, numerous flowers, a fern grotto, and many sitting areas to enjoy the quiet. The property is gated and fenced for complete privacy. It is beautifully decorated, but not museum like. It is friendly, cozy, and warm. Each room is decorated as a theme - the honeymoon master bedroom exudes romance, the cozy cabin bedroom is perfect for kids, the den is decorated in an African motif, and includes a large tv with cable and HBO. The view off the deck is endless wilderness. In the winter the cabin is nicely heated with a top of the line wood pellet stove - simply set the thermostat to your desired temperature and the cozy fire continues it's warm glow. In the summer the cabin remains cool and the nighttime breeze is heavenly. We have a portable air conditioner for rare heat waves. We are located off Sly Park Road, close to everything, yet Enchantment is located well off the main road. There is no traffic whatsoever. You will not see headlights or hear cars. The road leading to Enchantment is a bumpy dirt road. The landscaping includes waterfalls, pristine gardens, and large lawn areas.

The local area includes a large alpine lake (Jenkinson Lake - 3 miles away) which offers boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, sightseeing, camping, and horse back riding. The area of Fairplay (Somerset) is known as "Little Napa Valley" and includes wineries such as Lava Kap. It is a 10 - 15 minute drive from Enchantment. Downtown Placerville (where the gold rush began) is a 25 minute drive from Enchantment. During the winter, skiing is a 40 minute drive to the nearest ski resort - Sierra at Tahoe. Enchantment does get its share of snow in the winter. It is just below the snowline, usually receiving 6 - 9 inches of snow. Lake Tahoe is a one hour drive from Enchantment.

EXCEPTIONAL ONCE AGAIN!!

  • 5 of 5
Being back at Enchantment to celebrate New Year 2014 was wonderful. We stayed 4 nights this time and of course our 3 Rottie's were with us - a Rottie vacation as it were.

It was sad there was no snow this year, however we still enjoyed every moment of our stay. Lots of room for the Rottie's to run and play. Quiet time for reading and napping.

Kristy is a wonderful host and again ensured the cabin was warm and inviting when we arrived. We have already booked our next stay!

Thanks Kristy for being such a gracious host and accepting of our 3 crazy Rottie's.

BEST CABIN EVER

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect cabin, only 45 mins away from snowboarding in South Tahoe! We brought our dogs and Kristy was very accommodating - she left us doggy treats and doggy bowls. I would love to stay here again

ENCHANTMENT CABIN IS TRULY ENCHANTING!

  • 5 of 5
The wraparound deck had a beautiful tree top view. The cabin was clean, well kept and very comfortable for 4 adults and a baby. Dishware and cookware that was provided exceeded our expectations. We even had wineglasses and a corkscrew. Everything about the cabin was wonderful and charming from the furnishings to the relaxing view from the cabin and deck. I will definitely come back to this cabin. Kristy the owner, was reachable by phone if necessary. Thank you...we had a wonderful vacation!

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely can't wait to visit again. If you love seclusion and the outdoors, this is the place for you to stay. The owner was very helpful with getting us information about the surrounding area, and things to do while we were there. Kristy is dog friendly, our Labrador also had a wonderful time and felt very comfortable there. We all loved the grassy meadow a few steps from the home. Lastly, we hiked around Jenkinson Lake and that was the highlight of our time there. Thanks Kristy

PEACEFUL IN THE PINES

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Enchantment for our 10th anniversary trip. We were welcomed by a clean, charming cabin and a very sweet anniversary card from Kristy, the owner. She also provided plenty of literature about the surrounding area, games and movies, and a well-stocked kitchen. The property is quiet and secluded with many beautiful trees. The deck is a perfect place to relax and enjoy leisurely meals. The inside of the cabin has many unique rooms to lounge in, read, play a board game, watch a movie, or just enjoy the view from the many windows. Enchantment is perfectly located for many local activities. We especially enjoyed wine tasting and picnicking in nearby Fair Play, hiking Horsetail Falls near the town of Strawberry, and dining out in Placerville. As much as we loved exploring El Dorado County, relaxing at the cabin was the real highlight for us. Enchantment is a peaceful, lovely place to stay and we hope to return soon!

GREAT PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM CITY LIFE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took our two small dogs with us and stayed for a few days. It was very relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed hiking around the property and walking our dogs all over the place. We most enjoyed sitting on the deck and just listening to the nature sounds all around us. You are up high enough to watch the squirrels in the treetops, and we saw hawks and all kinds of neat birds flying nearby daily. At night the stars are ridiculously awesome to see. I used to live in Pollock Pines years ago, and I had forgotten how close you feel to Heaven up there. It's very beautiful in the Sly Park area, and the cabin is very comfortable and well accessorized for a relaxing visit. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return someday. Thanks to Kristy for all of her assistance and making sure we had what we needed while we were there. This was our first "VRBO Experience" and she made it as simple and pleasant as possible for us. We will definitely use VRBO rentals in the future again. Thanks! :D
