Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
About Julie Natali
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.
Julie Natali purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Julie Natali chose Dorrington
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!

Everything you could ask for and more.
The house lives up to the description posted. Our entire family was impressed. There was ample room for all with the three levels. We went from a sunny day walk through the Big trees to the next day of winter wonderland. You could not ask for better communication form/with the owners. This place is a keeper for our family. Thank you for sharing your home. Craig & Shelly
Another Great Stay!
This is our third time staying at the Natali cabin and we had another great time. The place was clean and ready for us. Julie was super communicative and helpful. Getting to the Bear Valley resort was a snap. Thanks so much!
Another great time at Hokan cabin
We love this house, which is why we have gone 2 years in a row. Spacious layout, clean and nice furniture/decor. Great spot when it snows because you can sled right next to the cabin.
This year, we ran out of a few items (garbage bags, dish washing detergent). We managed without and so didn't notify the owner. Also, the pinball machine hasn't worked either time and the board games were in such disarray that most were unusable. I am certain that its hard to keep them in order with all the renters, but it was frustrating trying to find a game that the kids could play.
I also wish we didn't have to bring our own towels and haul away our trash.
These were minor inconveniences and won't stop me from renting again in the future. Perfect snow getaway!
Great cabin for large families.
We had 4 generations stay in this cabin and it was a great fit for everyone. My grandmother doesn’t move around well, but everything she needed was on the main level, making is easy for her to not miss out on anything. Unfortunately, a few things either didn’t work (pinball machine), were not clean (bathrooms, kitchen), or missing (garbage bags, kitchen items) which was a little frustrating but overall it was a really nice cabin and a great layout. Also, a really nice area for walking and exploring.
I was suprised to read your review. I take great pride in providing a very clean and comfortable vacation rental. In 11 years and 73 reviews, we've never had anything less than 5 star reviews. This is a first.
I spoke with our caretaker, who was suprised to hear this as well. She has reassured me that from now on she will double check the property prior to our guests arriving to ensure it's clean. Regarding the garbage bags, she said there were plenty in the drawer next to the sink. I'm curious to know what kitchen items were missing, as our kitchen is generously stocked with lots of cooking needs, as well as spices. I'm an avid cook and appreciate the convenience of having meal prep items available to me when vacationing.
I applogize the pinball machine was broken during your stay. It needs service, and will be fixed soon. Hopefully you were able to enjoy the PacMan machine, ping pong, game table, and the many board games provided.
I appreciate your feedback and would like to discuss the condition of the cabin in more detail with you. Please contact me at your soonest convenience. Jodi has my phone number.
Great family stay
The house was in the perfect location, and had plenty of room for our two families. We would definitely return!!!
Great place and location
We had a wonderful time! The house was clean and super fun with plenty of things to do for kids. Julie was amazing and very responsive to my questions. I would highly recommend staying here.
