Property Reviews 
A pleasant family experience
Jim H. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
We had two cabins that were close -- Chalet Famiglia (terrible) and Pratt, which was far superior and less expensive. Pratt had some cleaning problems. The cleaning team could have paid a bit more attention to the bathrooms. But the air conditioing was good, the hot tub was great and the lay-out was exceptional. Recommended.

Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
Glad to hear that these guests had a good time at the Pratt cabin. It is a great property. The hard water in this area can cause staining in toilets and sinks, making them appear less clean than they really are. Our housekeeping team works very hard to ensure all properties are as clean as possible.

Our Stay
Glenn W. from Davis, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012
Overall a nice property. We have stayed here before and appreciate the recent improvements (flooring, new TV and wireless) We would stay here again. We specifically chose this property because of the hot tub. The hot tub is in great shape and clean. However, the hot tub seems to trip the breaker often and we have to reset the breaker 4 times during our 3 night stay. We also like this property because it has plenty of space around it to play/sled. They say space for ten, but we did not really find were #10 would sleep, maybe couch? My biggest concern is that there were no operating smoke or CO2 detectors located on property. Also there were only 7 dinner plates (again sleeps 10). A quick trip to IKEA would solve this.

Nice cabin, overpriced and mismanaged
A guest from Sunnyvale, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012
The cabin was nice, location was beautiful but my rental experience was horrible. First of all, I was told 3 different check-in times (one one website, another during rental process, third on contract). We are given very little time for them to receive the check. The amount we were charged for cleaning for 2 day rental is highway robbery and we were charged to repair something that was already damaged when we came.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
Our check-in time is 4pm. We try very hard to honor early check-in requests but sometimes it is not possible for the cabin to be prepared early if cleaning is needed prior to guest arrival. We must receive the balance of rental payment at least 10 days prior to guest arrival. If reserving at the last minute credit card payment is required. Our cleaning fees are competitive and very fair. Our staff checks each cabin prior to guest arrival. Unfortunately, this guest did not want to admit to the broken stair railing which was found by our staff upon their departure and was intact upon their arrival. All of our cabins are privately owned and our owners are making them available for guest enjoyment. We have a great returning cliental and take pride in the quality of rentals we have available for guest enjoyment. We like our guests to remember they are guests in someones home and we have the responsibility of maintining these properties so guests will return year after year. We do state on our rental contract to call our office if you find something broken upon your arrival.

Nice cabin at needs attention
A guest from Wilsonville, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012
We left a list of several items that needed attention in the Pratt cabin. We also suggested that an instruction she for operating the TV, hooking up the wireless, etc. be included with the packet. Given the inconvenience of no phone (we had a relative who was I'll and could not have them communicate with us), the inability to lock the door, the inability to use the TV, etc., an adjustment in the high cost for this cabin would be in order.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
Thank you for your feedback. This is the sort of information that is invaluable to us! The door lock, tv and phone service have been fixed. We hope that you will come back and stay again!

Hot Tub made this place clutch
Lou Z. from San Jose, USA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2010
After the Tough Mudder race for myself and 10 of my closest friends, the Pratt house was a very comfortable and inherently relaxing place to take care of our achy legs. Very well maintained and great deck to entertain all night.

Pratt Cabin July 2010
A guest from San Jose, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 9 days in July, 2010
Cabin is in beautifal setting and enjoyed our visit. We even saw two bears in the distance. I do have a few maintenance complaints about the cabin. The refrigerator was full of old food. I threw out things that were spoiled. The ceiling fan in the smaller upstairs bedroom did not work. Also, every time the air conditioning kicked on, the cable TV lost its signal. It came back on within a few seconds, but each time the program guide was wiped out until it reloaded over the next few hours. Also, there was a nail sticking our from the back of the lower cabinet door in the bathroom and carpet tacks on the floor at the door to the large upstairs bedroom...not good for children. The knobs for the shower in the upstairs bathroom are loose and one came off in my hand. Rusty condition of the sink and toilet need to be addressed. Minor repairs - but need to be fixed. For the amount of money charged for rent and condition of the inside of the cabin, I won't rent it again.

Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
Sorry to here these guests were unhappy with this cabin. We have many guests that return to this cabin year after year. Everything is removed from the refrigerators & freezers in our cabins prior to tenant arrival. If something was missed a phone call to our office should have been made. Sure wish these tenants had called us for any maintenance issues, we are available by phone 24 hrs. and would have gladly taken care of these minor repairs. This cabin has a wonderful setting and is comfortable, clean and enjoyed by many, sorry to here these guests were not pleased. Our cabin rental prices are very competitive. We just can't rent cabins at hotel / motel prices.

The wifi didn't work; the land line didn't work, there were some things that really needed to be fixed, but other than that, it was a comfortable place.
