    Erin J from Redwood City, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great visit in Dorrington at the Hicks Tree Fort. The people at Sierra Vacation Rentals were great and we appreciated their quick response when we had questions. The house was perfect for a family get-away with one other family. We both have young children and the kids loved playing in the upstairs "pool room" and we appreciated that they had a place of their own to keep the noise level down. :) Note for families with babies...the downstairs bedrooms are small, but the one upstairs was bigger so we had room to put a pack n' play out for our baby. The house was well-appointed and had things we didn't expect. We brought ziploc bags, plastic wrap, sponges, dish towels, laundry detergent but found they were already well stocked at the house. We did a lot of cooking and there was every type of pan and pot needed. Despite the fact that the house probably had all the original furnishings in the bathrooms and kitchen cabinets, it was super clean and all the bedding and dishes seemed brand new and clean. One extra bonus was the next door neighbor. He saw we were trying to build sled runs for the little kids with the minimal snow available. He made an awesome run from his driveway to ours by driving his truck over the snow bank on the side of the road to flatten it and make a run. The only thing I'd like for our next visit would be that we could leave a last load of dishes in the dishwasher for the cleaning crew to put away. Not a big deal, but it was harder to get out of the house needing to hand wash and dry all the final dishes. Also, it would be great if the cleaning crew could do an occasional date check on the food that has been left behind over time and throw out the expired items. Overall, we had an incredible time and loved the house, the neighborhood and the surrounding area. This was out first time to this area and really enjoyed it! It was so much easier to get into than Tahoe and seemed less chaotic, especially on a holiday weekend.

      We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the Hicks Tree Fort. The owners take wonderful care of the home and though it is older, there have been new upgrades such as new furniture, new flooring in the downstairs bathroom and kitchen, a new flat screen t.v., internet, and more. Bathroom renovations are being done later this year. The house is in a fantastic neighborhood and we are glad you were able to experience the kindness of locals during your stay. The cleaning crew does endeavor to check and throw out old and expired food items, but often times will leave condiments as they are left there by the property owners. The cabin does have a new dishwasher so hand washing the dishes should not have been necessary, though we sincerely appreciate you doing so and following the tenant check list prior to your departure. We hope to see you again in the future!

    Jennifer B from Foster City, ca recommends this vacation rental

    This cabin was great, I love the den/game room for the kids, and the kitchen had everything you could need. The wifi allowed us to not be too far from civilization while still enjoying our vacation. We will definitely be staying here again. Be careful on the front stairs, though. They are extremely steep and slippery in the wet snow

    • Manager Responded on 1/23/2015

      The Hicks Tree Fort is a truly charming rental that exudes that "cottage in the woods" feeling. It has been recently upgraded with new furniture, including a large leather sectional sofa, tv, new tile flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms, and wireless internet. The owners plan on making even more upgrades this year. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay there. The wet bar and pool table are wonderful to enjoy on cold, stormy days. During the summer the horeshoe pit is quite popular. Unfortunately, at elevations of 5,000 feet, stairs and entrance ways can become slippery despite efforts to de-ice, even if they are flat. Though the front stairs are somewhat steep, there are only about 5 steps leading up to the front door. Always use caution at high elevations during cold temperatures and snow storms. Again, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future!

    Michelle M from Bakersfield, CA recommends this vacation rental

    First off the property management team is awesome. The cabin was roomy, clean, and comfortable. Would have liked it to be a bit more secluded but definitely had our space. The kids were a bit sad there was no wifi however the adults were very happy about this. I would definitely recommend this property and you can't beat the price.

    • Manager Responded on 6/16/2014

      So glad these guests enjoyed their stay! Though the cabin is located in a residential area, the houses are well spaced and many houses are not occupied year round. It is a wonderful place to visit, summer, spring, fall, or winter!

    I absolutely love the cabin, it is very comfortable and cozy. The playroom with pool and mini soccer is a great benefit for children and adults also. The management was perfect. We rented this cabin for several years and plan to return here again.

    This is a nice cabin to rent for kids with a pool and foosball table upstairs. The only downside is that the living room is dark - but I think that is true for most of the houses in the area as they are all in the woods.

    George G from Menlo Park, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    We had a splendid snow storm during 4/11-13: about three feet on the road down to Lake Alpine. Fortunately a snowmobile had come through. We went up to the saddle, looking down on Duck Lake, then left along the ridge about a mile to do some telemarks. The cabin was our favorite, funky and clean. Two recommendations: something needed on the bath tub bottom so that we WILL NOT SLIP AND FALL while showering. Two: explicit directions for using the DVD. Other than that, really a fine cabin for relaxing.

    My friends and I spent Christmas time in this cozy house. It was a great place to go. All windows look to the big trees. There is a very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood, and you smell the pine trees and redwoods. Recommend it to those who enjoy a village style house. The kitchen is all equiped. Our teenage kids had fun playing pool in a play room. There is also a great set of games for all family. A lot of family movies, too.

    The property was great for my family. We were told there was a washer and dryer at the cabin but could not find one. The keys we were given did not open the garage where we believe the dryer was. Overall a great stay though...we will be back!
