Beautiful home - perfect for two families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this luxury cabin. The kids (both big and small) loved the games and the parents loved having lots of space. The home is comfortable and beautifully appointed. Would definitely stay again.

Amazing cabin with sledding spot right there! Great for many families!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this cabin in the winter time (3 families). We have lucked out both times having snow there. Has a great slope for kids to have fun sledding right there! Home is very clean and nicely decorated. Spacious rooms with lots of beds. Great kitchen that has everything you need. Wonderful care taker checks in with you to make sure all is perfect. Fun video games, ping pong and comfy couches to lounge on! I highly recommend you stay here!

Great Home & Wonderful Owner & Caretaker

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time enjoying the comfort, amenities and location of this beautiful home. It's a great place to relax, play games or just sit on the deck and watch the many birds flitting among the trees. The owner, Julie, and the caretaker, Mary, couldn't have been easier to deal with or more helpful and accommodating. We will definitely keep this home in mind for future trips to the area. Thanks again for a great experience!

About The Owner

We believe that quality family time is one of the most important values in life. Because of this, we wanted to create a home away from home, where we could enjoy each other without daily distractions. This is what brought us to the idea of owning a cabin in Big Tree's. We take much pride in our vacation home and are hoping others will experience the same gratitiude we feel everytime we visit.

This purchase didn't come easy... the seed was planted in our minds when we were first married in 1987. It took many years of hard work before we could afford to create our 'perfect' home away from home. We hope you will remember this with care, as you enjoy your stay.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Dorrington

We chose the Big Tree's area because it's not commercialized. The people of the area are so friendly and down to earth. Nothing can beat the beauty of the nature that surrounds. We love the area!
