We believe that quality family time is one of the most important values in life. Because of this, we wanted to create a home away from home, where we could enjoy each other without daily distractions. This is what brought us to the idea of owning a cabin in Big Tree's. We take much pride in our vacation home and are hoping others will experience the same gratitiude we feel everytime we visit.

This purchase didn't come easy... the seed was planted in our minds when we were first married in 1987. It took many years of hard work before we could afford to create our 'perfect' home away from home. We hope you will remember this with care, as you enjoy your stay.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

We chose the Big Tree's area because it's not commercialized. The people of the area are so friendly and down to earth. Nothing can beat the beauty of the nature that surrounds. We love the area!

This house is a DREAM. It is absolutely immaculate. Very spacious and perfect for kids. It is close to the town of Arnold and the Big Trees park. We loved the cozy, homey feel. The owner was easy to work with and the house itself was nicer than we even expected. Everything is new and it really feels like a home away from home!

Our family liked this house very much. It would accommodate all of (12 plus a toddler). The owner was very helpful, on time and helped us in the outcome. Unfortunately we two parents had to leave early because of illness, but our grown children and grandchildren stayed and enjoyed it very much. The caretakers were very helpful and brought extra supplies which were needed. I would certainly recommend this home to a large family. We have vacationed in this area for many years.

Second time staying there with two other families, and we had a second great time. The house location is perfect location near the Bear Valley ski resort, but not to far that it is easy to get to in any weather. The hill next to the house is great for sleding and snow fort building. Video games, ping pong, and board games in the house make evenings great. Truly an awesome place to stay.

We stayed the first weekend in 2013, and this place is marvelous!

Three levels means kids and parents are separate-able! The lowest level has a game room to envy - ping pong, pinball (although it was not working for some reason), board games, chess and a full TV/DVD.
Great place to banish the kids to, while the parents are on the main floor (kitchen, full family room with fireplace, large TV, DVD, and one of the larger bedrooms, and a storage cabinet with TONS of DVD's in it to watch movies from). This level also has a full wrap around deck with views to mesmerize into,

The upper floor has three bedrooms and the master suite with the dueling shower heads (really nice) and a jacuzzi tub. The only thing is all 12 of us had to spread out our shower/baths, since apparently the water heater is a little small and hot water would run out.

Full laundry also helps, but here's the best part - being on a hill, we snow-sledded everyday, just outside the garage! WARNING - even if you have 4 wheel drive, and especially if you don't, bring CHAINS if you go anywhere near winter.

LOVE this place and will be back!

And just today: Security Deposit refunded in FULL! :-)

Owner's Response: Rakesh,
Thank you for your very kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed our place and hope to have you return again. You were wonderful renters who obviously treated our place as if it was your own home, with respect :)
In response to the water heater situation... our water heater is of average size. When a large group is trying to take showers all at the same time, as with any standard water heater, the hot water is limited. We may be able to solve this problem by turning up the heat of the water heater. I am just reluctant to do this because I'm afraid someone could scald themselves if not careful.
So happy that you all had a wonderful time!
~ Julie :)

Our experience in this cabin can be summed up by the words of our 7 year old grandson, within the first five minutes of our being there: "This is my best vacation ever!" We could easily enjoy the big trees at Calaveras State Park one day, and the refreshing waters in Lake Alpine the next. The cabin was roomy enough for our family of 10, and had everything that we possibly needed. We so welcomed the thoughtfulness of Mary, the caretaker. We'll be back!
