We had 3 couples staying here and the house was wonderful for us! The description of the house was accurate. It was clean and well-maintained. We had everything that we needed. The management provided good customer service. A couple of our people went cross-country skiing at Bear Valley. We were able to take some nice walks around the neighborhood. We have been to Snowshoe restaurant and always enjoy their beer and food. Appreciated the fireplace! It's not far from the Big Trees State Park, which we have been to and enjoyed.

We spent last weekend in The Squirrel’s Nest and had the best experience.

Everything was as described, the house was clean, kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, etc. if you will be cooking.

The house is light and bright inside with large windows and plenty of space both inside and out.

The location was perfect. We were in town for a wedding and chose this property because we have friends in the same neighborhood.

The vacation rental management staff was exceptional, great communication, very helpful and responsive from booking through checkout!

Definitely recommend The Squirrel’s Nest and Dorrington Realty/Sierra Vacation Rentals. I, personally, can’t wait to go back.

Loved the cabin location and layout. Not happy about the closet situation. The master bedroom had no closet to use. No where to hang clothes, put shoes, store luggage. I had to hang my clothes in the utility closet. I know this is the owners right but they are not taking the renters into consideration. Also the throw rugs and area rug under the couch are a nuisance. You trip on them all the time. The seat covers on the dining chairs are a joke. They come off all the time. The cleaning needs to be done more thoroughly. The carpet under the couch and behind the chest looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in awhile. The patio lights were out but the management company fixed them right away. Sheila was very nice and helpful but I think the owners need to update some things.

We had a nice stay during late June. It was pretty hot out but the house cooled down well and the agency bought two fans when we asked if there would be any. The layout is really nice and the kitchen is really well equipped.

Make sure you go to Dorrington Realty for the keys. I went to Big Trees in Arnold at first because that was the original confirmation. You also have to make your own beds which might surprise people.

The rental is very much in line with the description. My family of 6 adults, 2 kids had a great time here, with plenty of space. The surroundings is beautiful with lots of trees, quiet neighborhood. The check in process was clear, convenient lockbox pick up on the road up to the cabin. The house overall was definitely clean, but given the pandemic, we did a quick walk through before unpacking and found the floors to be really dirty; with a crawling baby, that was a problem for us. Otherwise, the house was great, well equipped, and well located. The managing company was also very nice and responded well to our requests/questions.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed your stay. This is a nice comfortable cabin nestled among the trees. Floors are mopped and vacuumed throughout the house prior to guest stays, pandemic or not, this is part of our cleaning service. Living in the sierras with our pine trees, cedars and dirt surrounding the property and now with the pollens falling from the trees around the house, makes the floors a never ending battle to keep dust up with walking traffic. Removing shoes upon entering the cabin is helpful.
