I really enjoyed hiking in Calaveras Big Trees and loved Alpine Lake. The house was perfect for us and located closeby to many places. It was pretty warm this summer and there is no air conditioning. Maybe a few more fans for the bedrooms and a screen on the upstairs bedroom would improve the experience during the summer. We would stay there again though.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed our home and the area. All of the windows in the house should have screens. I will check if one of the upstairs screens perhaps fell off and, if so, put it back.. We rarely get very hot at 5000 feet but obviously from your experience it happens occasionally. We do have one fan behind the fireplace...

This house is amazing. When we arrived, we ran into the cleaning crew. They were really friendly and helpful. The house has absolutely everything. Just come and enjoy. Beautiful few. House is fully equipped. Has a Foos ball table upstairs that we enjoyed every day. Also has all the board games you can think of. You can never get board at this place.

Location is perfect. Just few minutes away from Calaveras Big Trees. Also has a really nice snow park at the end of highway 4. We went to the snow park 3 days in the row and had a blast. You can ski, snowmobile, sled, do cross country. Really fun place. If your bring your own sleds, skis or snowmobile, at the end of highway 4 there is a place where you just pay 5$ for parking and can do all of it for free. Has place for everything.

Highly recommend this place.

Perfect Gataway!!!!

Management response:

Thanks for the great review. We love sharing our home with people like you who appreciate it as much as we do. Such a special place to just hang out and enjoy family, friends and nature.
