Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)
We are a couple of good friends who purchased the cabin to enjoy our winters skiing and snowboarding at kirkwood mountain resort. Over the years, we've discovered many great summer activities as well, such as wine tasting, hiking, kayaking and rock climbing in the area.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Owner chose Pioneer
The cabin is a real getaway from city life. Set in a beautiful sugar pine and cedar forest, it's very peaceful. We enjoy the wilderness setting and its vicinity to outdoor activities.

It worked for us. The owner was great to work with. Nice BBQ provided
Fun, relaxing mountainous getaway
This secluded spot is surrounded by beauty and great for families with kids.
Very nice beautiful area!
Owner very helpful and responds to any issues quickly. Enjoyed the hot tub. The bedrooms upstairs are all connected, but there is one separate bedroom downstairs. So not any privacy for upstairs area. Barbecue needs to be replaced, when cooking, drippings drip onto propane tank. Close to ski areas, Kirkwood. Nice wood stove keeps everyone warm and cozy!
We entered the house to a horrible smell, and found potatoes rotting in the cupboard, and musty smelling laundry left wet in the washing machine. There was no newspaper or kindling to get a fire started, and we had to go outside in the dark to scavenge some. We found dirty socks stuck between one of the beds and wall. The hot tub was nice, but we were expected to heat it up and turn off the breaker prior to leaving. And, the hot tub deck was covered in debris, and looked abandoned with broken chairs on it. The linens were old, did not smell freshly washed, and were rough. I am NOT a picky person, but the fact that we were charged a LARGE flat cleaning fee (not the deposit, but a fee tacked onto the rental price) and did not arrive to a clean house (and only stayed 2 days), seems ridiculous. Plus, I have never stayed in a place where we were expected to take all the bedding off the bed and bring down to the laundry room, put towels in laundry room, take out the trash, run the dish washer, and turn of the breaker for a hot tub. For a large cleaning fee, those things should be done by the owner, not the renters.
Just what I needed
Great for the family!
Owner was VERY helpful in resolving issues with booking (of my own making). Huge yard, epic games of hide and seek with the kids. House stayed fairly cool even during the heat wave. Kitchen had what was required to cook meals.
