Property Reviews 
Great Cabin!!
Lucette Z. from San Jose, Calif. recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in July, 2014
Overall our stay at the Gilmore Cabin was Great. The place was clean and lot of amenities. The only drawback was that there were curtains on the windows which was alright except for the bedrooms. Would like a little more privacy. I would stay there again.

Response from Big Trees Real Estate, Inc.
The Gilmore Lodge certainly is beautiful. The owner has chosen to forego the window coverings to afford the beautiful views of the surrounding forest.

Meh
Bruce S. from Nevada City, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013
I've rented other properties through Bigtrees, and Gilmore does not compare favorably. It is roomy, pool table is a big plus, but it is way over-priced for what you get. Master bath smells of mildew (you notice it as soon as you enter MBR); critters--probably bats--live in space above ceilings on both floors; deck boards attached with nails rather than screws, so they protrude in many places making it dangerous for barefoot kids; owners lock all kitchen cupboards not already full of pots/plates, so renters have to keep all their groceries in bags on the floor.

Not as nice as pictured!
A guest from Salinas, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2013
Overall the cabin is very nice but we didn't like the fact that there were not any window coverings in the bedrooms. In the master bedroom you felt like you were dressing in a fish bowl! The master shower curtain was covered with mildew. We have stayed at quite a few cabins over the years but this one will not be repeated!

Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
One of the things our guests returning to this cabin like best is the privacy this cabin has to offer and the beautiful view of the trees from the windows. Covering the windows with curtains would ruin the whole experience and atmosphere of this luxury cabin. The owners specifically designed this home to have lots of windows to afford views of the surrounding forest. We will take a look at the shower curtain and replace it if necessary. This property is very well kept by these owners who enjoy sharing their home with others so they too can enjoy a mountain retreat in the sierras.

Gilmore visit
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012
Our family enjoyed our second stay at the Gilmore Lodge. The place is open and airy, and the pool table is a definite plus. The one negative is the lack of curtains in any of the rooms. While there aren't any neighbors close by it still is a bit unsettling to not be able to close curtains at night. But otherwise it's a good place for families, plenty of room and great location.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
Though these guests were aware of the windows not having curtains before reserving, I guess it takes those of us who appreciate the beauty of the trees and mountains to not stress over the lack of window coverings in this beautiful cabin. Watching the snow fall or the wonderful stars in the clear mountain sky before falling asleep at night is one of the reasons I live in the Sierras and what makes this cabin a delight for many of our returning guests to enjoy.

peaceful
Anne M. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
House has lots of windows, wonderful deck to sit outside and read while listening to the wind in the trees. Quiet neighborhood. Close to Calaveras Big Trees, Bear Valley and alot of lakes and hiking places. Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. Great place to stay, except we would prefer to have curtains/blinds on the bedroom windows; that way we can make the room darker so that we can sleep in past dawn.

From these guests comments it looks like they really enjoyed the Gilmore cabin. It looks like they used the wrong number rating. Really glad they enjoyed this beautiful cabin in the mountains.

A Beautiful, Snowy Thanksgiving
A guest from Danville, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011
Great woodburning stove, big rooms, excellent WiFi, lots of windows, lots of books. We cooked our brined turkey in an unfamiliar oven, and it came out delicious. What could be better?

A Welcome Rest
Robyn F. from Draper, Utah recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011
After a shaky start using another rental company for our first night's stay in Big Trees; we were elated to arrive at the Gilmore Lodge. It was clean, quiet, enjoyable and well organized. Our group enjoyed the huge deck and BBQ'd on our first night . The pool table, tv and the relaxing atmosphere gave us all what we were looking for . Many thanks to the managers who rescued us from staying another night in the other cabin which was a total nightmare. such nice people to work with! We could tell the owners had anticipated everything we would need and had it there waiting for us. We would definitely come back to the gilmore lodge again!
