Our cabin is the perfect place for a romantic stay, a family vacation, girl's getaway or a retreat. Internet, cable, board games, wood burning stove, front deck, and more. The cabin is very clean and updated. No shag carpet here! Only 3 miles from Big Trees State Park. Upstairs loft and level lot for exploring. Pet friendly ($30 fee total)

The space

I treat my cabin like a home I personally would live in. The cabin is a chalet style so it has a very open and warm feeling. The loft is upstairs and has a table, television, queen bed and 3 twin beds. If you have kids, this is the place to send them! Downstairs has two separate bedrooms, each with a queen bed. 2 full bathrooms, one on each level. Tons of floor and couch space. The front deck allows you to pull up a chair, grab a book and just relax to the quiet sounds and the fresh air the mountains brings.

Guest access

Unlimited firewood, fully stocked kitchen, sleds in the wintertime, outdoor table and chairs (kept in the basement), front deck, movies, board games, internet, books and more. BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS AND LINENS PLEASE. Pillows and blankets provided. I recommend bringing kindling to start a fire easier and quicker. Wood burning stove is main source of heat and does a great job of warming the cabin.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as they would like.
I have a handyman available at all times to fix anything or answer any questions. Friendly local (Dick) lives across the street is always helpful.

Other things to note

Cleaning fee of $90. Please bring your own sheets and towels. No garbage service in the area so you will have to take it with you down the hill. Drop off FREE site is Avery Refuse.

Nancy's cabin was convenient for visiting both the Big Trees and Alpine Lake. Even though we didn't get to meet her, she was very easy to communicate with and checkin/checkout was simple. In the evening we started a fire and that warmed the house up well. Everything was as expected!

Response from Nancy:
Thank you Danielle. So glad you had a good time at the chalet. Also, thank you for mentioning the fire and warming up of the cabin. People sometimes panic with the idea of no central heat system, however, the mountains and a fire in the wood burning stove suffice and provide an amazing atmosphere.

Nancy was awesome! My contact to her was so last minute and she totally accommodated us and our furry friends. We will book again in the future with more family. Great location for many reasons. Thanks Nancy, Donna

We had a nice stay. The cabin is really cozy and in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Watch out for this guy Dick, he'll stop by and try to scare you about bears! Nancy was very prompt with her msgs.

Great, quiet place. The house is well maintained. There is no campfire spot behind the house but there is a fireplace inside the house. This place is 30 minutes south from Lake Alpine and 20 min north from a grocery store and gas station.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We had a fire pit but just dismantled it last month. Too many renters almost burning down the woods! I hope you visit again.

Wonderful house, great location. We were able to get sheets in Arnold at Good Will.

Response from Nancy:
Thanks Milton! Sorry you didn't catch the file that stated "bring your own sheets". They charge me $100 per guests for this service so I just have guests bring their own!

My family and I stayed here on our way from San Jose to Yosemite and from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe. We loved the small town and the house. The neighbor (Dick) is a very friendly elderly gentleman from the opposite house. As mentioned in the document, please park your car about 20 feet away from house on the flat circle. Near the house the slope is too much and that can be a problem for some cars especially in winter. Check out Calaveras Big trees state park for sure. Cheers Amey

Amey, Thank you for your comments and for reinforcing the parking rules. You would be surprised at how many people ignore it, park down the driveway and get stuck in the snow or have a pinecone hit their window. Hope you come back!
