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

Family friendly cabin

  • 4 of 5

The home worked well for our group, 3 couples (1 with an infant). The kitchen was functional and had a table for six near the kitchen area and a large table on the deck. The bedrooms and bathroom were fairly basic, but the bedrooms were a good size. The activity room downstairs has a 1/2 bathroom and that was helpful. Overall a cabin that worked for our visit to the area. Close to Pinecrest Lake and area camps.

Barely any heat and terrible King bed

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived it was 44* in the house and the power to the upstairs heater thermostats was off. The manager came within an hour or so to turn the power back on an program the thermostats, which automatically turned the heat down to 58* 4 x per day!

They suggested we use the fireplace for heat and they provided a ton of great firework, but no kindling to start a fire or an ax to cut any wood into kindling. We regularly use a fireplace at home, so we know how to start and keep a fire going, but this was ridiculous. I don't know if it was broken or the chimney needed cleaning, but we could barely get a fire going and it produced little heat. In the end it took over 48 hours for the temperature inside to reach 67* (max temperature allowed by thermostat). Then shortly after the thermostat would reset to 58* and we would have to bump it back up again.

Another issue was the King bed. This bed was so concaved in the middle you could see it from across the room. Sleeping on it was so uncomfortable we moved to the twin beds instead. Really disappointing.

The view was nice and the neighborhood is amazing, but I'm really shocked and disappointed with the heat issue. We will never rent this or any other house by again.

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm very sorry you feel this way. Cabin #11 is a lovely family cabin. There are heaters and thermostats in every room. The thermostats are programed to 67 and cycle down to 60 (pge recommended settings) during the day when most guests are out for the day. As you said you can raise the heat any time you like. There are also 2 wood stoves that heat the cabin without any other source, and it is advertised on homeaway amenities and description as well as my site to use wood to supplement heat. Guests do it every weekend. It is a cabin, we have wood stoves for heat. As you said we provide wood. We also provide safe firestarter logs, and advise guests to bring them as well on the rental agreement. We do not leave axes because children could be harmed. As for the king bed it was purchased brand new in June. The area is beautiful and the cabin is wonderful for family vacations. We want all our guests to have great stays, so sorry you had difficulty. Thanks, Darlene

Memories made!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. We got turned around at first but Darlene came to us and drove us to the cabin. The cable was out due to the snow and she got someone out right away to fix! PLENTY of snow for the kids and very close to Dodge and casino. We will definitely go through Darlene again for are upcoming getaways!!

Our cabin was very clean, well furnished, and had everything we could possibly need. The game room downstairs was a pleasant surprise! I will be staying here again

Good cabin for large group

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was well furnished with lots of beds, space to set up the travel cribs we brought, lots of cooking equipment and places to serve and eat. However, we selected this place because it was supposed to be walking distance to Strawberry River. It was not. It was several miles to the bridge access to the river. It was nice to be a short drive to Pinecrest Lake and the area is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for letting us know you enjoyed your stay. The river is about a mile hike or bike ride up old strawberry rd. Several trails. And you can hear the river from the back decks. If your into hiking you can walk out the back of the property it's right on national forest, straight to the river. Hope you come again soon. Thanks Darlene
