About Darlene - A1 Vacations Customer Since July 1998

We have been serving renters for 33 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 33 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. Now there's Verizon cell coverage. 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! 2093520161

Relaxing in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful week at this rental in Sonora. The natural setting was absolutely beautiful and there was plenty of room for everyone. We really enjoyed walking the 2 mile loop every day in this lovely neighborhood. We dined in town, visited Yosemite and just relaxed. Hated to leave.

** We couldn't get the gas stove heater started and called Darlene at A1 Vacations who sent a very nice man out to help at 9:00 p.m. on our arrival day. Very impressed with her response.

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm so glad you enjoyed the beautiful lodge. It is a very relaxing place. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to respond and solve the problem. Many times guests won't tell me if they had problem till they get home. It's too late then. My crew is very happy to have the privilege to respond to a need. Thanks so much for being great guests. Hope you return soon. It was a pleasure to serve you. Thanks, Darlene

DarlenesVacation Rental stay at Sonora rocked!

  • 5 of 5

We have used Darlene's vacation rentals for few times in the last 5+ years and I must say it has always exceeded all our expectations. We went to her Sonora property last week (2/13/16) and the house was simply amazing with a 3-acre lot and stunning views. It was very much organized and we had an excellent stay. I will highly recommend this property to vacation goers to the Dodge Ridge ski area. 2 thumbs up! Thanks a ton Darlene!
