Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a really great stay this past week. I especially wanted to say we appreciated the nice quality linens and having such extensive cookware - we are big cooks, and it was great to have all the kitchen accessories we needed at hand in the house. And our girls really enjoyed all the toys and kids movies in the loft.



The VRBO reviews rang true for us. We felt like welcome guests in your home rather than impersonal renters. We'd welcome returning again if you'd have us!

We purchased this as second home for our young family, and had it only for ourselves until 2013. We've had so many wonderful years there with our kids. As our kids are now teen and tween, and we're not there as often, we are now able to share our house with you.

Sun Lee purchased this chalet in 2001

The house was built in 1984, and we are the second homeowners. The property is centrally located: 5 minutes from Big Trees State Park; 10 minutes from Arnold; 20 minutes from Bear Valley Ski Resort; 20 minutes from Murphys; 30 minutes from Angels Camp. There is sledding in the backyard in the winter. Use the property as a great place to relax and hang out or to use as as a jumping-off point for the many outdoor activities, or to visit the quaint Gold Rush-era towns of Murphys and Angels Camp, and the wineries of Calaveras County.

The house underwent a limited but thoughtful remodel in 2007, with interior painting; new light fixtures throughout; new kitchen appliances; and beautiful interior stained glass window -- 4'x6' -- custom-made by a renowned artisan in Arnold.

A Peaceful Week in the Pines

  • 5 of 5
My family had a really relaxing time and spent a happy week over New Year's in Dorrington. We loved all the natural light and windows in this house, which was surrounded by woods and a quick 20 minute drive to nearby Bear Valley ski resort. Besides skiing, it's super close to Big Trees State Park and Murphy's, where we took fun outings throughout the week for hiking, park time, shopping and restaurants. The house is in excellent condition and we were very comfortable -- whether it was the high quality linens and towels provided (the first house we've rented in the area that provided these -- and we've rented 3 others in the past) or having a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. There is an airy second floor loft that is great for kids to have a space of their own to hang out as well. We would definitely consider staying again in the future!

Excellent vacation house surrounded by many fun attractions (even in summer!)

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property between 7/4/2013 and 7/7/2013 and had a wonderful time over there.

The house was really great. I had stayed in several vacation rentals in past, but this was definitely the best one. It was very clean and also equipped with everything. I think the owner was using the house for their vacations until very recently, and that is why the house is kept in such a nice condition. Basically, you do not need to bring anything, maybe just only a pair of sandals you can use on the deck, and you can relax yourself in this clean cozy house without any worries.
The pictures on this site tell the condition of the house very well, but the actual house is even better than it looks like in the pictures. The dining table is definitely bigger than it looks like in the picture: big enough for 6 people. The kitchen is bigger than it looks like, too. Also, the house has a “welcoming atmosphere” more than you see in the picture.
Here is additional information.
1. The house has enough beds for 7 adults.
2. The deck has a quite new George Foreman grill (in July 2013).
3. The kitchen has a nice coffee maker and a rice cooker.
4. The living room has many attraction/restaurant guides around the house.
5. The shower rooms have shampoo, conditioner and body soap.
6. There are a washing and a dryer machines.
Btw, this house has a strict "no outside shoes inside the house" rule. I like this rule because this rule keeps the house clean. And, I hope everyone follows this rule since I like to stay this “clean” house one more time in future ;)

Dorrington and its neighboring cities have many fun attractions, even in summer.
Many lakes for canoeing, fishing and hiking
Stanislaus River (It was very beautiful when I visited. And, not so crowded.)
Many caves (I went Moaning cavern which I found very interesting to see)
Hwy4 (If you like driving, try to drive up to Hot Springs state park. This is a scenic byway)
Many wineries in Murphys (If you visit here on July 4th, do not miss an event in Ironstone Vineyards. Its fireworks event is just great!)
Many hiking/biking trails

Finally, I would like to talk about the owner. The owner, Sun, is a very kind person. I asked many questions, and she answered all of my questions in detail. Also, she gave me many useful information about neighboring attractions. If you have any questions about the house or/and neighboring attractions, do not hesitate to ask her. I am sure that she helps you to plan your vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Masaya,

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest, and I was delighted that you took such interest in the many attractions that the area has to offer. I'm so happy that you had such a great stay, and per your recommendation, we are getting some slippers to make it easier to go in and out of the house. We sincerely hope that you come back again soon!

Excellent property for family trip

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for 3 nights in February. We planned this trip as a Big Bear ski vacation. We found the property very clean, spacious, comfortable, and well decorated. When we arrived, there was snow on the ground but the driveway had been cleared. The thermostat was set to a comfortably warm temperature before our arrival. One reason the place is clean is because everyone must remove their shoes before going inside. We did not cook any meals, but found that the kitchen was fully equipped, including paper towels and dish soap. We easily found the sheets, pillows, and comforters to set up the trundle bed in the loft bedroom for our kids, ages 8 and 10. The kids had a great time playing in the snow, and thought it was "cool" sleeping in the loft bedroom. The Wi-Fi worked just fine for us. We found a variety of board games in the dresser/cabinet at the top of the stairs, as well as kids books, travel books, and cookbooks. There was a TV in the loft, and another in the master bedroom, along with a few videotapes and DVD movies. It was nice that there was even a hair dryer in the bathroom, and a variety of shampoo too, although we used our own. It was a bit like borrowing a friend's house, with all the comforts of home.
The owners were friendly and quick to answer our questions prior to our visit, and they provided complete and accurate information about use of the property prior to the rental date. We be happy to rent this place from them again.

A cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely weekend at this cabin in Dorrington. We were there to ski at Bear Valley - only 20 mins away.
Unlike previous cabins we have rented in the area which were very utilitarian and clearly 'rental' units, this one was like walking into a cozy home - clean, nicely decorated and had lots of homey touches. Sun, the owner is new to renting so this might change as she has more renters - especially if they dont behave themselves while in her home, but for now, it is a great home away from home to rent. I would definitely rent from her again. Thanks for the great weekend.
