About Darlene - A1 Vacations Customer Since July 1996
We've been serving vacationers since 1984, 35 years. It's a family business, my children grew up in the business and still assist guests daily. When I started, the cabins didn't even have TV, it was the forest and fun that drew guests up the mountain to play, swim, fish, hike, bike, horseback ride and visit Columbia State Park, Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, Pinecrest lake, Ice skating, snow play, Tuolumne and Stainislaus River, big Trees and so much more. It has been a pleasure to serve thousands of guests over the years. We do our very best to make each stay a great experience. The crew works exceptionally hard to keep everything going! We look forward to having you as a guest!

Spacious and clean cabin.
Clean and spacious property with three levels and plenty of space. Kitchen was well equipped. Beds were modest. Would return again.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I appreciated your email letting me know you liked the cabin. You replied here...
"We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Everything worked well and was exactly as described in instructions. The cabin was even bigger than expected. Only the snow outside was missing. Well, it is the dry year in California this year."

Yes it is neat place for families and plenty of room for everyone to some space. Really close to dodge ridge and Pinecrest lake, leland snowplay and long barn ice rink. You were great guests and we look forward to your return. It was a pleasure to serve you. Thanks Darlene
We have stayed here twice and have a large family! I cannot ask for more! Very cozy and Darlene is always ready to assist at anytime!! Cannot wait to come back next year! :)
Catherine, so glad you had a fabulous time! I loved getting the fabulous email from you. It's a pleasure to serve you as a returning guest, makes my hard working crew very happy. Look forward to next time! Thanks Darlene
Everthing was good.
The cabin was very cozy, comfortable and temperature was good in cold weather. But I think water tank might be small. So some of us have to take a shower with cold water. Another problem was mattress. They are too old. Except for two things, it is really comfortable cabin.
Hi, thank you for your time. The cabin is comfortable and very nice. We got a new king bed so not sure? I'm so glad you enjoyed the rest of the cabin. It has 3 floors, pool table, new hard wood floors, granite counter tops. We do explain in your information that you can't all take showers at the same time. It's a 60 gallon tank so if you have 14 people all wanting to take showers you have to limit shower time and leave time in between every couple of showers. It's not conducive to long luxury showers. But it is a huge tank. I'm glad you had a good time. Its lots of space, good for families. Happy holidays! It was a pleasure to serve you! Darlene
Great time in the woods!
Our party of 10 had a great time at the cabin! The area is beautiful with lots of hikes nearby and also near to Pinecrest Lake. The cabin was great with full stocked kitchen. Beds were little uncomfortable but overall we enjoyed our stay.
Hi, I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin and the beautiful surroundings. The kitchen is well stocked. Its difficult to please everyone with beds. Everyone likes their bed at home. I know when I travel it's just somehow not right. Also I'm not as young as I used to be and I like my bed! You were wonderful guests, hope to have you stay again. It was a pleasure to serve you! Thanks Darlene
Great location, easy access and bigger inside than expected
Upon arrival, we had a note from the maid asking us to put away the dishes that she washed from previous renters. That was odd.
The only bed that was comfortable for the adults was the one on the main level. It would be good if they updated and added mattress toppers.
The bath towels were very dated and small. Thankfully my sister let met know and I was able to bring some up a couple of days later when i arrived. There was only 1 hand towel for all 3 bathrooms & kitchen for an entire week. Crazy!
The Kitchen was poorly stocked, ie... No pot holders, bad selection mixing bowls, and cooking utensils. We had to go to Sonora to buy some supplies. Fortunately, we left them for the next guests.
We left a day early even though we had paid because my husband wanted a good night sleep in his bed before going back to work.
Other than those negatives, it was very nice to get away, breathe clean air and spend time with our family in a cabin in the mountains playing pool, taking a couple of walks, playing board games, and going ice skating and to Leland snow park.
Hi, I'm glad you had great time, it's a great place. I'm sorry you didn't find things in the kitchen. It is overstocked in my opinion but guests seem to like it. I wish you had contacted me I could have directed you to the things you needed. As far as the beds, I know it's difficult for me to sleep in a different bed when I'm on vacation as well. There's really no way to determine how to sleep everyone comfortably. I like soft beds, others like firm beds. Thank you for letting me know what you think and I'm glad you enjoyed your family time.
It was a pleasure to serve you. Thanks Darlene
Great for large family!
We had four generations together for a fun weekend. Plenty of space to spread out. Seven minutes from the lake. The cabin was clean and well equipped. It could use some updating on the bedding. Overall, very satisfied.
Hi, thanks for the great review. It is a great location to the river and the lake. Its spread out enough for 4 generations that's for sure. So glad to have you stay again. It was a pleasure to serve you. Thanks Darlene
