    Overall our stay at the Gilmore Cabin was Great. The place was clean and lot of amenities. The only drawback was that there were curtains on the windows which was alright except for the bedrooms. Would like a little more privacy. I would stay there again.

    • Manager Responded on 8/6/2014

      The Gilmore Lodge certainly is beautiful. The owner has chosen to forego the window coverings to afford the beautiful views of the surrounding forest.

    Our family enjoyed our second stay at the Gilmore Lodge. The place is open and airy, and the pool table is a definite plus. The one negative is the lack of curtains in any of the rooms. While there aren't any neighbors close by it still is a bit unsettling to not be able to close curtains at night. But otherwise it's a good place for families, plenty of room and great location.

    • Manager Responded on 1/8/2013

      Though these guests were aware of the windows not having curtains before reserving, I guess it takes those of us who appreciate the beauty of the trees and mountains to not stress over the lack of window coverings in this beautiful cabin. Watching the snow fall or the wonderful stars in the clear mountain sky before falling asleep at night is one of the reasons I live in the Sierras and what makes this cabin a delight for many of our returning guests to enjoy.

    Anne M from Walnut Creek, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    House has lots of windows, wonderful deck to sit outside and read while listening to the wind in the trees. Quiet neighborhood. Close to Calaveras Big Trees, Bear Valley and alot of lakes and hiking places. Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. Great place to stay, except we would prefer to have curtains/blinds on the bedroom windows; that way we can make the room darker so that we can sleep in past dawn.

      From these guests comments it looks like they really enjoyed the Gilmore cabin. It looks like they used the wrong number rating. Really glad they enjoyed this beautiful cabin in the mountains.

    Great woodburning stove, big rooms, excellent WiFi, lots of windows, lots of books. We cooked our brined turkey in an unfamiliar oven, and it came out delicious. What could be better?

    Robyn F from Draper, Utah recommends this vacation rental

    After a shaky start using another rental company for our first night's stay in Big Trees; we were elated to arrive at the Gilmore Lodge. It was clean, quiet, enjoyable and well organized. Our group enjoyed the huge deck and BBQ'd on our first night . The pool table, tv and the relaxing atmosphere gave us all what we were looking for .
    Many thanks to the managers who rescued us from staying another night in the other cabin which was a total nightmare. such nice people to work with! We could tell the owners had anticipated everything we would need and had it there waiting for us. We would definitely come back to the gilmore lodge again!
