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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Darlene,

We had a great time at the cabin. We were worried for a second on our way out due to the weather, but we managed to get all our cars out without too much trouble (with a little bit of help from a neighbor).

In terms of the cabin everything was good.

Overall it was a great experience.

I want to book for next year already!

This house was perfect for my friends and I this July 4th! The best part of the house was the backyard space and "true" bedrooms for couples and singles. We are also a very short drive to Pinecrest Lake. Made for a great weekend!

large enough for big groups but........

  • 1 of 5

We had a group of 12 people, so the two bathrooms were a little tricky but we made it work. The towels were very old and ridiculously small for 12 adult women. It took two to three to dry off. I would suggest investing in larger towels. That said, the main issue was in the kitchen. The microwave was cracked and the door was literally falling off. The Refrigerator light was out, the door doesn't close right and the cooling mechanism was weak. It wasn't just that they were old , everything was broken. Dish towels were also missing , so we had to use paper towels that we brought, which was not energy conscious. I would suggest investing in a few dish drying towels. The sheets were in the rooms but not on the bed. Just FYI. As we got in late, it was a hassle to make all the beds. I wouldn't stay here again.

Owner's Response: Sorry you feel that way...the cabin is a great family place, many families have enjoyed their return visits over the last 10 years. The sheets and towels are provided in every bedroom. The description says 2 baths. And your rental agreement provides a list of items to bring. The kitchen is well stocked. Both refrigerators work quite well. We work very hard to assure our guests have great stay. Darlene

Nice size place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this place. Plenty of room for the number of people we had. Only two small problems one we could not use the oven due to it not cleaned properly and when we turned it on and it started smoking at the house. No big deal we barbecued all weekend. Other small issue was a limited bathrooms only two and taking showers was difficult especially with the size water tank that is there needed to space out showers 15 minutes apart to try and keep water warm. With the amount of people taking showers you had to save a lot of time before planning your day and going out. But overall nice quiet area peaceful place definitely would stay there again. PS maybe upsize the TV in the living room to a flat screen

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for the nice review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. As we discussed the guests before you burnt up something in the oven and they ran the self clean, which unfortunately just made a burnt sacrifice out of it. There's a flat screen TV upstairs in the game room... We do remind on our rental agreement and in the cabin binder to space out showers. It is a very cool big cabin. Looking forward to your next stay. It was a pleasure to serve you. Thanks, Darlene

Great for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful house for a few families to go play in the snow. The upstairs worked great for all the kids. With twenty people we all had enough room and didn't feel too crowded.

great for large family

  • 3 of 5

the cabin is large enough for a large family gathering. cabin is dated, stove probably needs to be updated. but overall it's a good cabin.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks for your thoughts. The cabin is great for large families. Not sure which stove your referring too? The wood stove is older but huge and it will heat the house along with the forced air heat. The crew could tell you had a good time! The cabin always gets great reviews. And has a lot of return families. Thanks Darlene

Quite, Cozy & spacious !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 20 people stayed in here and had a memorable Thanksgiving holidays at this property.... Loved the spacious Living room, Kitchen room and dining area !! Kids enjoyed the spacious Loft !! The property is clean & well maintained. The TV in the living room may be upgraded to a bigger & flat screen. No other major concerns.

Loved the quite, scenic & private decks in the back yard... Enjoyed our morning coffee looking at the giant pine trees !!!

The scenic Pinecrest Lake is just few miles away from this property...

The owner / manager was very responsive in answering our calls / emails, whenever we contacted them !!!
