About The Owner

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

Why The Owner 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!

Great Home & Wonderful Owner & Caretaker

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time enjoying the comfort, amenities and location of this beautiful home. It's a great place to relax, play games or just sit on the deck and watch the many birds flitting among the trees. The owner, Julie, and the caretaker, Mary, couldn't have been easier to deal with or more helpful and accommodating. We will definitely keep this home in mind for future trips to the area. Thanks again for a great experience!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our family vacation. The house had plenty of Room for our 3 generations (6 Adults, and 4 Kids). When we weren't relaxing at the cabin we spent time at nearby Lake Alpine fishing and playing in the water, or strolling through Big Trees. The cabin is well furnished with games and activities for everyone; the kids especially enjoyed the PacMan video game and ping pong table, as well as the many board game options. Or if you just want to relax the deck provides the perfect setting to take in your surroundings. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Relaxing and enjoyable weekend

  • 5 of 5

There are 4 couples that get together at least once a year for a weekend of cooking, wine, games and cards. This year, thanks to the Natali cabin we also had PacMan and pinball. The cabin was as advertised with all amenities and very clean. With the extra large big screen TV, my husband and a few others got to enjoy watching The Open. All of us enjoyed the accomodations and appreciated at how well the cabin is furnished.

Beautiful architecture and interior decoration. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

  • 5 of 5

This memorable home is a very spacious house with comfortable and accommodating furnature. The game room was a sensation with everyone here. The rustic interior timber architecture and exposed nottie pine as well as the double exterior decks were especially appealing. Very enjoyable!
