This Dorrington cabin is such a treat, both inside and the surrounding areas. We had a great time swimming in Lake Alpine during the day and coming back to the cabin to work on one of many puzzles available at the cabin.
We had a lovely time at Sandy's place - like other reviewers have mentioned, the pictures don't do it justice. It is roomy, updated, and in a beautiful setting. We loved sitting on the deck sipping coffee and listening to the birds. There are lots of fantastic movies, board games, and puzzles for cozy evenings.The location is great - close to Murphy's for wine tasting, Big Trees SP is down the road, and a 30-60 minute drive to Lake Alpine, Bear Valley, and several high elevation hikes. Our dog had a wonderful time as well - the dog bowls and bed are a plus!
The red cabin was great. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful and relaxing time.
Proximity to Big Trees park is amazing, and the gas/grocery stores are close enough that you don't feel too isolated.
Our dog loved romping around in the woods around the house. The forest behind the cabin is great, and the creek on the front side is nice as well.
There is a bit of a trick to finding the place, as it looks like you're going into the driveway of the neighbors' cabin, which threw us off. Just be sure to arrive with plenty of daylight. I don't think the neighbors were home, so we had a very high level of privacy for the duration of the weekend.
Thanks Sandy for a great stay!
Sandy's cabin was amazing. The cabin was clean and spacious and the surrounding area is extremely quiet and serene. We brought our dog and he loved it.
Make sure you bring flashlights because it does get really dark at night. There are no streetlights and you are pretty much secluded from everyone else outside of the people in the neighboring homes.
It was a bit tricky finding the place, but just look for the yellow fire hydrant!
Super clean home, stocked with everything we needed. Definitely best to arrive here in daylight as the area is dark. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We LOVED staying in Sandy's cozy cabin for our 19 year old daughter's birthday weekend! The location is beautiful, down a country road and very private. Our dog ran around and loved the creek just outside the door. The cabin itself is very nice, with a new kitchen, great living room with pull out futon, and a private upstairs bedroom with great views. Nearby Alpine Lake is 30 minute drive and GORGEOUS! Great for swimming and fun hikes for the entire family. Sandy leaves plenty of bottled water for people and pets to drink. Look for the big tree off Frontage Road, that's the turn for Meadow Lane.
The Cabin was great. We had a great time and the cabin is located right near to everything, but is still removed enough to have a private get away. All the amenities were clean and cozy. There is wifi and a land line if you want to make connection to the outside, but I was fairly relieved when I couldn't get any signal on my phone. Thanks again and will hopefully get to visit again sometime. Sandy is a wonder communicator too, and was extremely helpful.
Lovely little cabin nestled in the woods, but with a lot of light because it's across from a huge pasture. Extremely quiet and quaint, but close to everything -- Calaveras Big Trees state park, Arnold, Bear Valley. I particularly appreciate Sandy's willingness to host well-behaved dogs. Mine had a blast. We will be back.
Det som var positivt med Sandys hus på Addison street var läget, närheten till parken, havet och naturen. Samt att det var goda bussförbindelser till downtown Berkeley. Det var också nära till 4th street som är ett väldigt trevligt område med restauranger och shopping. Annat som var positivt var husets planering att det fanns rymd och gott om utrymme för två personer. Köket var trevligt och bra dusch, samt tvättmaskin. Det som var negativt var att sängarna var väldigt dåliga, gamla och obekväma.Trådgården som skulle kunnat vara en stor tillgång var ovårdad och igenvuxen, det fanns heller inga trädgårdsmöbler inte ens några enkla stolar att sitta på utomhus. Det fanns ingen fungerande tv, dvd osv. även om vår värd påstod det. Möblerna var gamla nedsuttna och oattraktiva. Det var också väldigt lyhört mellan rummen. Det som dock var det värsta var att värden efter att vi hade åkt hem anklagade oss för att ha förstört köksbänken och ville att vi skulle betala ersättning för den i efterhand. Detta misstänkliggörande av oss gjorde att helhetsintrycket av boendet blev mer negativt än vad det var från början. Sandy hade en låg profil och höll mycket sparsam kontakt med (website hidden) tyckte att standarden på boendet var lågt i förhållande till det vi betalade för att bo där.
West Berkeley is not the most glamorous part of town, but the Fourth Street shopping and restaurant area is nearby, and the bus to BART and the University of California campus is conveniently close. The flat was clean and comfortable, and exactly as depicted in the description and photographs. Sandy was very nice and helpful.
Sandy was a terrific guest. She left the place just as she found it, and even left me some terrific bread for breakfast when I returned. I'd gladly have her and Jano back anytime. :)
Sandy was an excellent guest. Glad she chose to stay at my place to visit her daughter. The place was very clean after her stay. Highly recommended guest!
Sandy was a great guest. She took excellent care of Wee Cabin. She was always pleasant and courteous. I would welcome her back anytime.
Great guests all-around. Respectful of the space and super-easy to interact with. Would book again any day! Thanks for staying!
Sandy was very nice
Great guests! Thoughtful and left the place totally clean. They have an adorable dog who is super sweet. Would totally have them come stay again.
Sandy is a sweet, neat, friendly and helpful guest. I enjoyed meeting her and am lucky enough to be hosting her again next month. Thanks for being my first guest.
Sandy is lovely - very quiet and unobtrusive. A perfect guest!
