Great stars!
A guest from Palo Alto, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. We spent all our time on the front deck stargazing, soaking in the tub, enjoying meals. The river is about 10 min away and very accessible--even for our dog. Alpine Lake was fabulous too. Unfortunately, on our last night the fire alarm went off at 230am for no reason. They are hard wired and one on high ceiling making it difficult to disengage! Disappointed not to have a call back on the incident--now 3 days out.

Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc.
So glad these guests got to enjoy the beautiful features of the area. Views of the night sky and stars are certainly fabulous up here. Very sorry to hear about the fire alarm. We are available to our guests 24/7 for instances such as this. I am wondering if this guest called the office and not the after hours number? Unfortunately, there was a power outage during this time frame and it most likely caused the hard-wired smoke detectors to go off. The guest has been called and the issue has been resolved.

3 out of 5 stars
A guest from Salida, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013
We had a great time while staying at the treehouse. However, we stayed during the holiday rate (which was way over priced for what was offered). The house was not the greatest for toddler aged children-a lot of steep steps in front and back with a sloped yard.The fenced yard is suitable mainly for smaller dogs. Our dogs were easily able to escape. We would recommend this house for middle aged adults only. The steps would be challenging for small children and older adults. Anyone looking to have a quiet get away (w/o tv, Internet, etc) would love it here. It's a fine place but just didn't 'fit' our style/needs.

Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc.
Thank you for your review. The Topanga Treehouse is designed to be a mountain getaway, which is why there is no cable or internet service. The owners have done this in an attempt to encourage guests to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds the cabin, such as the Stanislaus National Forest and the nearby Sourgrass recreation area. The house does have a tv with a dvd player and a movie collection. There are many steps leading up to the front door, so the house is not recommended for elderly persons or small children. The CC&R's in the neighborhood prohibit fenced in yards, which is why the fence is not as sturdy as a regular chain-link fence. We hope these guests will come back and try another house next time.

topanga
Andrew N. from San Jose, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2013
TV cable was broken, DVD player not even hooked up, VCR took a bunch of fiddling to figure out how to get it working. It would have been nice to know that a service was going to plow the driveway (they did, we just did not realize it).

Weekend Stay
A guest from Pleasanton, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013
Our attraction to this cabin was that it was dog-friendly. There is a fenced in yard where we could let our dog out to do his business which was a nice perk. The cabin has lots of bowls and toys just as advertised.The cabin was not in spotless condition but was still very clean. I gave only four stars for this, but maybe I have super high standards??!! Also, the wood for the wood-burning stove was stacked underneath the deck rather than in the rack on the deck. I had to make my own kindling and split some of the logs to make fires. One note: the driveway to the cabin is a long and steep slope, which could make access during snows dicey. It was dry when we came, but I could see where there could be an issue. Overall, the place was nice and came as advertised. The deck is really large and has a nice view overlooking the trees, and the carpet inside is plush. I would definitely recommend to a small family looking for a dog-friendly cabin in Dorrington.

Great retreat, dog friendly
Lauren T. from Livermore, CA recommends this property.

We spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Topanga Treehouse. We had a wonderful time, and the dogs loved it too. I also enjoyed the small town tree lighting ceremony we attended at the Dorrington Hotel. Overall, the trip was great. The house is in excellent shape and very clean. We will definitely come again.

Comfortable Cabin
A guest from Berkeley, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012
Apart from the key pick-up instructions being sent after we had left for the mountains, we found the cabin quite comfortable for 4 people. No garage and quite a few steps to climb so not a good choice in snowy weather.

Topanga Treehouse - not good for hot summer nights
A guest from Los Gatos, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011
Big Trees is a great place. However, the Topanga Treehouse really heats up at night - the place seems to hold its heat no matter how many windows and doors you open and fans you run. It was easily more than 15/20 degrees hotter inside than outside at night. We went to friend's places in Big Trees that did not heat up like this at night. During the day - its OK since we go out and enjoy the area. However at night its awful. Only 1 fan was supplied; we had to buy fans and all sleep in the living room since the bedrooms was like ovens. It was about 75 outside at night, but over 90 inside! Might be OK for Fall/Winter/Spring stays - but certainly not for summer.
