lovely house in the woods
Jennifer D. from Oakland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 The property was peaceful, filled with wild flowers and deer. Very well stocked, more so than expected! I would definitely recommend this to another guest. There were a couple of initial problems that the management company took care of in a courteous, timely manner.

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Our family stayed in the Mountain Getaway cabin for 4 days. It was fun and relaxing and nice to be able to take our dog with us. The cabin is beautiful and has a great lay out for two families so we may rent it again and bring some family friends with us. It's a good location, close to Snowflake Lodge and convenient drive to the grocery store in Arnold for supplies and up to Lake Alpine and Stanislaus River. We went kayaking, swimming, waded in the river, made some brownies and put together a puzzle. Very relaxing!
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Dear Kim, Thank you for your wonderful review of our Mountain Getaway! We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves in our highland playground. We hope to have you back sometime! Sincerely, Emily Kolter Century 21 Sierra Properties Vacation Rentals Assistant
Melissa B. from Stockton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We had a wonderful stay and the place was beautiful. It was one of the cleanest cabins I've ever stayed in and I will definitely stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Hooray!!! We love reviews like this! Thank you so much! We look forward to your next visit!
A guest from Sacramento, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 This house was great for the weekend i stayed up there. Felt like home. Wish my trip was longer. I liked that there was music playing when we first arrived as well. The driveway was a little scary at first because of the steepness but other than that i recommend it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Thank you Brianna! We are so glad you enjoyed your trip! We look forward to having you and your group back soon!
Dimitry H. from Atherton, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 Things were as usual, generally OK. The problems were: toilets overflowing (with 3 little kids with us, its hard to affix blame), lights out on porch, light and fan controls in living room not working consistently, no lamps near the bed in the master bedroom, and, generally dim living room.
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Thank you for your review. It was wonderful to have you and your group back again! We will certainly take your suggestions into consideration as we are always striving to deliver the best experiences for our guests. We look forward to your return!
Wendy P. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 Beautiful location! Yes driveway is steep, wouldn't attempt in the snow or ice. Fridge and cupboards left with old expired food. Felt a little uneasy the first night as the door was unlocked and TV on when we arrived. Once settled in, it was very peaceful and relaxing.
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties We leave the lights on and the TV playing music to Welcome you! Going into a dark, quiet house that isn't mine always feels strange to me. So glad you were about to enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains!
Valerie M. from Danville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 This is a lovely place to stay. Very cozy and very clean. The driveway is a little too steep for my nerves but the other members of our party who drove didn't have a problem with it. Winter may be another story. Otherwise, just lovely.
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Thank you so much for the review! We enjoyed having you as our guests and hope you'll come back soon!
Dimitry H. from Atherton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 The home was very good, as usual, however there is room for improvement. The living room lighting was very dim. The parking, at the end of a steep driveway, should be expanded to allow for enough maneuvering to get a car turned around 180 degrees so that it doesn't have to be driven down the steep and sharp curved driveway backwards. This issue caused us a lot of trouble this time. How about a greater discount for us frequent renters?
Property Manager Response: Response from Century 21 Sierra Properties Thank you for your review. I hope you had a wonderful experience with your family and friends. Your are correct there is always room for improvement your suggestions are duly noted. Steep driveways are a part of mountain living.
A guest from Novato, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2013 We had a two night stay at the Mountain Getaway. The house was perfect for our family of seven. The kitchen amenities were great. The beds were all very comfortable. There were plenty of comfortable chairs to watch TV.We thought we might be able to go snow sledding in the backyard, but the snow was melting a little too fast. However, we took a ten minute ride just beyond Camp Connell and found plenty of snow and hills to have fun . we look forward to doing it again.
A guest from Atherton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 We had a wonderful time with 3 generations and pet....well appointed, tastefully decorated house. Wi-fi was a plus. Lovely for a Spring, Summer, Fall stay. A steep, long driveway might make a Winter stay (hike up the hill) difficult. Our bedroom on the main floor was lacking a window covering. That said, we'd go back in a heartbeat!!
Bruce C. from Philadelphia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 We are busy, our children even more busy. We live on opposite coasts. We found here a place where we could have a comfortable, relaxing time to keep in touch.
Janice C. from Granite Bay, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 Cabin itself was very well-amenitized. Location up very long steep driveway was a big negative for us as well as the surrounding land being on a steep hill. Cabin carpet was very dirty, spiderwebs in home. Understand it is a pet friendly home so this is probably hard to keep clean. Only one out of three tvs worked (with cable). Home was very comfortable and kitchen was well-stocked. Furniture was nice. We have stayed in many wonderful BLS cabins over the last 15 yrs- we would not say in this cabin again due to location.
A guest from San Carlos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 The home was clean and well stocked with the exception of the kitchen (glasses; microwaveable bowls). The beds are EXTRA firm and for some in our family, uncomfortable. We brought out dog, and while the stairs to the house were very steep, we really appreciated the gated porch and extra pooch amenities. We loved dealing with Century 21 staff!
A guest from Concord, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 Steep upgrade and steps to the cabin. Once you were inside the amenities were great! Air conditioning was needed and appreciated for our stay. Lots of games for the grandchildren including the Wii. Enjoyed clear night star gazing! Cons: dirty oven, propane & charcoal grills, and carpets may need attention.
A guest from Sonoma, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2012 We had the best time. My wife and 4 kids and my daughter-in-law's brother and his girlfriend came to stay. We played board games, watched tv, took hikes around the neighborhood and went up to Bear Valley and Alpine Lake which was frozen over. There wasn't much snow, but Bear Valley had augmented with manufactured snow which was great. My daughter learned to ski (her first time!) and the whole experience was fun. We highly recomnmend this cabin (although it is a bit far off the highway to get to!), but maybe that's part of the attraction. It's soooo quiet! Thanks for a good time.
Gina S. from Burlingame, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 the house was definitely not very clean- dirty carpets, dirty bath, laundry room mats- which i ended up washing myself. The refridgerator and cupboards were completely full of old food from past guests. I had to clean out and throw away all of the old food and wipe clean the inside of the refridgerator- not acceptable in my opinion. The outer linens of the beds- bedspreads etc seemed like they hadn't been cleaned or laundered in a very long time. As well- the deck furniture was lacking and in fact two of the chairs were ripped and not usable. the coffee machine is broken and the microwave doesn't function well. The electrical socket in the downstairs bedroom doesn't work. The gas bbq that was offered- was absolutely filthy- there were old fat drippings on the pan below the grill. Obviously hasn't bee cleaned in who knows how long. Absolutely would even consider cooking on it... curiously thought the BBQ utensils appeared to be new.
Anthony A. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2011 Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Getaway. The home is clean, comfy, warm, and welcoming. The house furnishings are modern, and there's plenty of games to keep the whole family entertained. The property manager is a delight to work with. They're flexible and very kind.
