About Darlene - A1 Vacations Customer Since July 1998

We have been serving renters for 32 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 32 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. 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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks again, the view was great, the cabin was comfortable for our family group. We found it clean and inviting. We had a fun at Doge Ridge, Leland Snow Play and the Ice Rink was fun for the kids. We will be back.

Nice house, great location

This is the second time that our party has stayed at this house. There is plenty of room for our large group, with lots of space for kids and adults to stretch out.

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin and amazing location! The cabin is very spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean upon out arrival! The only thing I would suggest is to have more parking, it is a 16 person cabin and it definitely needs an extra spot. Great experience overall! Definitely recommend for a fun family weekend!

Beautiful view, cozy and nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

The view from the porch was stunning! I loved to sit out there and drink coffee in the morning, watching the light move over the trees. Beautiful! The cabin was conveniently located about ten minutes from the lake, which was also gorgeous. The cabin had comfy, rustic feel. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. We had a great time!

Great cabin !

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was nice and it's big for 16 people to stay in. It has a nice set up especially the gameroom. The front porch was nice right next to the grill. Plus I loved how it was 10 mins away from pinecrest lake! I enjoyed it.

Awesome! Cabin number 12 was perfect for our party. It had plenty of space and was big enough to keep the kids and the parents separate enough areas for us to all have a good time. We also enjoyed the air hockey table and the foosball table.

The only improvement I can suggest is to be a little bit more clear in the instructions for new guests. By this I mean that I was a little confused about whether there would be sheets on the bed, or towels for all of us. Another suggestion, and I am not sure if anything can be done about this, is that parking is very limited. When you have a cabin that can accommodate 16 people, limiting the cars to just two, makes things a little bit difficult.

But, I must say these are very very small annoyances, and overall we are extremely happy with the facility .

Thank you,

– Paul

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and comments. There is overflow parking at the entrance to cold springs around the corner. The parking instructions are posted on homeaway and my website. When you book with homeaway sheets and towels are provided per the amenities list. So glad you let me know. We do everything we can to inform our guests prior to arrival to view all the details and information so they can have a successful stay. So happy you enjoyed cabin 12, I love it. I've had since 1990 and it just keeps getting better. The view is the best in the county. Thanks again it was a pleasure to serve you. Darlene

Very Cold, not enough heating system in game room

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this property for two nights in Dec 2016.


It had enough beds to sleep for 16

Good Views

Cable TV

Nice living room


The game room where most of the beds are placed was very cold and did not have a heating system. To make the room warm, we needed to set fire on the fireplace in the first floor.It was really uncomfortable. If heating system or heating vents are provided in the game room, it would have been a nice stay. Secondly, for the capacity of 16 persons, this house doesn't have a good water heater to produce enough hot water in the bathrooms. Only about 4 or 5 persons were able take quick bath, then needed to wait for another 30 minutes or so for lukewarm water.This property needs some improvement with regards to hot water. The bath tub in the second floor is useless for many of us. Might be good for bathing babies.Be prepared to drive AWD vehicle to reach the parking place of this vacation home. If you have a big van like sienna/odyssey/caravan, hardly or not reaching there.

Have a printed map of the whole Cold Spring area. No service coverage from ATT. Some coverage to Verizon service. You might be lost in the snowy condition if you drive a big 2WD van because of there are many steep (raising) roads.

No telephone in the property. There is no way to communicate outside if there is an emergency.

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for your comments, we appreciate the opportunity. Cell service is best if you have Verizon on the mountain. Some of the cabins don't have phones everyone uses cell up here. Your cabin amenities list on homeaway will inform you. Cabins that have phones are local only, long distance requires calling card which is also listed. The cabin instructions and description page prepare you for using wood for heat. The wood is provided for you. The wood stove heats the house along with the gas furnace. The snow is wonderful but it makes travel more difficult. The directions on the cabin page of our site have a map link and specific directions which we provide for guests use. Map quest and Google will get you confused. Hopefully this review helps guests to utilize the preparation and information we provide so that everyone has a great stay. Cabin 12 is a favorite and the view is the best in the county. I thouroughly enjoyed myself at cabin 12 last night, using my phone wifi, sitting in the dining room looking at the beautiful view while my husband shoveled the driveway for today's guests. Thank you so much, we are glad you had a good time, it was a pleasure to serve you. Darlene
