A Quiet, Calm Vacation
A guest from fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2016 Our family had a fantastic vacation at Moore Big Trees. The kids had fun. The zipline at the back was especially fun. Situated in Camp Connell, this cabin is ideally located with easy access to Hwy 4. The work areas with the roof skylights on the 2nd floor were just perfect for a quiet read, focused work, with tons of natural light filling the entire area.Big Trees Realty were very helpful, considerate and timely. Was a pleasure to work with them! Would definitely rent again through Big Trees Realty.
A guest from Rocklin, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 The cabin was amazing! A bit smaller than we thought but felt 10 times the size. Wonderful weather, warm nights and cool days in the cabin. Pool table and fooseball table kept everyone entertained. Very clean when we arrived.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. Thanks for your review! The Moore Big Trees/Kids Paradise cabin is one of our most popular. The cabin is just under 1700 square feet but with the large loft upstairs it certainly feels much bigger. The cabin has tons of amenities, including the pool and foosball tables, and is set up for kids and adults alike to have a blast while staying. We are very glad you enjoyed your time there and hope you come back for another visit in the future!
Amy M. from Hilmar, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 Wonderful inside and outside space. So fun and relaxing! Easy to get to, close off of 4.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the Moore Big Trees cabin. It certainly has just about everything kids and adults will enjoy to have a comfortable vacation in the mountains. We are glad you appreciated it and hope to see you again in the future.
Gina O. from Manteca, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 This Cabin was perfect for enjoying the snow.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your time at the Moore Big Trees cabin. The property is very well appointed with lots of amenities and a great location for snow fun.
A guest from Stockton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 even though we did not find the property spotless the kids enjoy the stay very much you had think of every possible details to make our stay enjoyable and the location was perfect only a couple of miles to Big Trees
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. It looks like these folks reviewed the wrong cabin! They stayed in one of our most popular homes, the Woodbery Lodge. I'm not sure what wasn't clean as nothing was reported to us, but glad that this family enjoyed their stay. The proximity to Big Trees State Park is definitely a perk!
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2014 We stayed at the Moore Big Trees cabin for 3 nights. The cabin is well located, about 20 min drive to Bear Valley. It has lots of entertainment including a zip line, a pool table and a huge selection of movies and games. The kids had a blast! The cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable. This is the 4th time we use Big Trees Real Estate for renting a cabin in that area, they are very friendly and accommodating. They have always provided excellent service.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. Thank you for your kind remarks! We are so glad that you enjoyed all of the available fun activities at the Moore Big Trees cabin. This property is well stocked and is always enjoyed by guests young and old! The zip line is always a popular item, especially because the owner leaves it up for use year round. We strive to give our guests a most enjoyable stay and are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time here in the mountains. Thank you and we look forward to having you back again!
Janis M. from Valley Springs, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 We had a great time and will return. This cabin has so many fun things to do and is close to a grocery store and ski resort. It snowed the first day we were there and was so pretty. All the kids had a great time playing pool, foosball and video games on the day it was drizzly and cold. The management company is very helpful and friendly, as well.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed the Moore Big Trees cabin! It is a very well equipped cabin and has fun amenities for both young and old. It is quite beautiful when the snow dusts the forest. Thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to having you back!
Theresa H. from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 We have been going to the same place in Big Trees for the last 8 years and love it there. Especially when there is snow around the area. But we still enjoy the woods and fresh air and the cabin we stay in. The rental management is very personable and helpful! And we enjoy the convenience of Bear Valley not far away!
Joan s. from Benicia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 The cabin was great. Quiet, close to the river, loved the rec center and the lake was great. Zip line and swing were a hit. The only concern was the zip line was broke at the bottom. My husband fixed it. The deck was dangerous in some spots. Needs o be refinished .
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals This owner is diligent about up keeping his cabin. We will check the zip line. I walked the deck and could not find any area of concern? Thanks for the comments, will inform our owner.
John S. from Vacaville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 It was a year ago that we stayed at the Moore Big Trees house had a blast and came back to visit it again. The "Kids Paradise" in the title secretly means "will bring out the kid in you". We brought a handful of teenagers and were able to let them do "their" thing, while we went on to do "our" thing and really had a chance to settle in and enjoy some of the many amenities. I really appreciate the location and room to play outside. Next time, we will have to come in the summertime to appreciate the nice deck and speakers wired in everywhere. As always it is a pleasure dealing with Sierra Vacation Rentals/Big Trees Realty.
The place to stay when taking time with the family!
John Q. from Stockton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 Dan was great with a last minute reservation, and Linea waited after hours, because we were delayed in getting up to pick up the keys. the condition of the cabin's furniture is a bit dated, but we did not go to sit to grade the furniture. They stated you need to bring some basics but alot was there already provided. The pool table, fooseball, darts and now a days the wifi was great to unwind after a long day of snowmobiling, Skiing or sledding at Bear Valley. Parking for 5 vehicles and if it would snow the kids could sled in the drive way , because it is located in the back of a circle, or play on the swing or ride the zip line. We will be back!
Theresa H. from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013 We love the cabin and the location, plus the swing and how there can be snow around the cabin, though this time not quite enough to sled on the grounds. We greatly appreciate the owners renting their cabin out to people. And we noticed the cook top was fixed with all 4 burners working. -- Thank you!
oscar p. from modesto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2013 We had a great time at the Kids Paradise cabin. All four of our children enjoyed the snow, including the baby:) There is lots of area for snow play. Overall good place for families with kids. Thank you.
Anna S. from Sunnyvale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 Everything was great except of a challenging driveway. We had a lot of snow during our stay, and returning in the evening from skiing required a lot of shoveling and several attempts to drive up the driveway.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals Always bring chains along with you if traveling to the sierras, especially if you do not have four wheel drive. This driveway has a snow plow contract and is cleared as often as needed with the snow fall.
Renee V. from El Granada, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2012 A wonderful place to spend family time in the evening cooking dinner and eating around the table. River fishing was great, and visiting Lake Alpine, Spicer Res. and Pinecrest Lake were so much fun for all of us. Shopping Murphys was a plus for the girls and let's not forget our visit to the Caverns!!
Jim B. from Pleasanton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin, it was clean and had everything we needed (and a lot more) for a very enjoyable stay in the mountains. But... I'd have to say the boys had the best time, tons of entertainment for them, they had a blast.
Carolyn C. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 I think the fee for the receation area is too much. I only used the pool for two days ( totaling four hours) - I was charged $ 35.00. I would like a newer cabin next year.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals Recreation pool use is optional. There are many wonderful lakes in the area to swim at if a pool isn't your choice. The lakes are free. This cabin is hard to pass up for the many amenities that it has to offer. Guests return yearly to this cabin to enjoy the Zipline, and to discover the new amenities that this cabin owner has added for guest enjoyment. This year a horseshoe pit has been added and has been a popular addition for our guests.
John S. from Vacaville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 We loved the location, it was up higher than previous rentals and the area surrounding the Moore cabin was spacious. As soon as we walked in, the kids instantly had their music going upstairs and you could hear them having a ball playing pool. The zip line outside was also a hit. We were fortunate enough to be there and get a good dose of snow. As always, the property management was more than helpful and always friendly.
A guest from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2012 Everything great except the cooktop/ oven. Only two of the four electric "burners" worked, and the two that worked had very poor temp control. My husband is the cook and always complains about this cabins cooking experience. If not for all the other wonderful aspects we would stay elsewhere.
Susanna U. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 Great house for our family of four (two young children) and dog. There was pleanty of roaming around area and fun things to do at the house (zip line, fooze ball). We look forward to our next stay at the Moore House!
A guest from Pleasanton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 It was very quiet and peaceful, well it was quiet until the kids were screaming with delight using the zip line and swing! This was a great place for the kids and the adults, and I am sure we will be back again.
A guest from Milpitas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 Moore Big Trees (Kids Paradise)was a great place for us: 2 adults,2 kids,1 dog. The kids could play outside or inside when Mom & Dad wanted to relax on the deck. Nearby White Pines Lake was nice - and it was great to come back to a comfortable place to BBQ and play some family games. Kitchen had everything I needed tool-wise for cooking. Do bring slippers or thick socks - not the place to walk around barefoot.
Carolyn C. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 When we arrived the whole house had lights on including the deck, music was on and the fans. We found it uncomfortable
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals The housekeeping staff prepares all of our cabins for guest arrival in this way. If you come at night then lights are welcoming instead of entering a dark cabin. The fans were to keep the cabin cool with the summer heat. And the music was just a nice welcoming atmosphere to walk into. This was the first time we have heard it being unpleasant.
Robyn F. from Draper, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 We had a great time at the cabin. Had a killer billiard competition. The deck was awesome.The property was clean from the cleaners coming through, but it really needs a deep cleaning. Alot of the pans, silverware etc. wasn't very clean- but it is now!The cupboards need to be wiped out and organized. The carpets need to be cleaned. (walking barefoot turned all our feet blackish) Also a little more space in the cupboards for food storage or somewhere would have been helpful.We would recommend it to people certainly and the management was most accomodating. I am only mentioning the cleaning to help you get a feel for what needs to be done. good vacation!!
Shelly D. from Danville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 ...to one of the most wonderful vacation homes we have had the pleasure to enjoy! All the amenities, room for the kids and just feeling right at home. Thanks for a great vacation!
A guest from Salinas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2010 This property needs a good overall cleaning and makeover. We found dog hair all over the floors, the refrigerator was not wiped all out and I had to clean the downstairs bathroom sink when we arrived. The mattress in the downstairs bedroom needs to be replaced because when two people get on it you roll to the middle. There also needs to be more than one dishcloth in the kitchen. We have stayed at this cabin many times and it is a nice cabin and with a little bit of deep cleaning it could be up to what it use to be. We did enjoy having internet and long distance available to us.
Property Manager Response: Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals Haven't heard any of these complaints from the many guests who have stayed in this cabin. There are quite a few dishclothes in the kitchen drawer. No past problems with the mattresses. Recently 2 new mattresses were replaced in this cabin as well as new carpet. Not sure why these tenants think it needs a makeover?
A guest from San Mateo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2009 Quiet, private neighborhood. Lots of snow to build snowmen and igloo. Not enough incline for sledding, but the zip line and tree swing in the backyard were lots of fun. Great having the pool table and foosball for entertainment at night. Stereo system is also piped throughout the house and even outside. There's independent heating in each bedroom -- a big plus.There are plenty of DVDs, and a game console. Internet was available but on a very slow modem connection. Would be nice if there was WiFi and broadband considering there is no cell phone reception. There's a W/D so you can wash your clothes which means less to pack. Plenty of heavy blankets and pillows are provided but are old. You must bring your own towels, pillow cases, and sheets, which is a little cumbersome. Overall, the house cleanliness was satisfactory. Some of the windows were smudgy and the oven needs cleaning. (Next time I'll make a note to management.) It was a little much that we had to put all the dishes away from the dishwasher, clear the fridge, gather up all the garbage, take off our linens and make the beds before we left at 10 am. I was hoping our cleaning fee would take care of that. Then again, that could be why the cleaning fee is so low.We will stay in Big Trees Village again.
Dan G. from Windsor, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2009 The cabin has some ammenities for a big group, Pool table, foosball, darts, computer, lots of movies, etc. Our only problem was that we could not figure out how to work the tv for broadcast channels.
A guest from Los Gatos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2008 The water heater breaker switch was turned off, so we didn't have hot water our first morning until I called to find out why.
A guest from Novato, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 We really enjoyed the cabin. The amendities were great. The couches felt pretty old as well as the carpet. Since we have allergies in our family, those things are a concern for us. Everyone stated healthy and we'd stay there again. Location is perfect for taking off to explore the high country. It was a fun summer mini vacation for us.
