Nice rental home. Disappointed with dirty dishes. Also could not use advertised wi-fi Internet since password was provided. Other than that had a pleasant stay.

As an overload from our house nearby, we housed 6 family members at Mendonca during the Holidays . It was warm and cozy; plenty of room and had everything they needed - flat screen TVs upstairs and down, coffeemaker, etc.

almost stayed
A guest from Saratoga, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in February, 2011
Intended to drive up Friday but snow storm kept us home. Drove up Saturday, got keys at 12:30 PM, got to cabin at 3:30 PM. Half of us traveled in 4x4 and were able to get to cabin in snow. Other half drove van that would not make it in as the roads had not had a chance to be plowed. Neighborhood power was out, cabin had electric heaters so no chance we were staying. Neighbor said worse snow storm in years and she did not expect power restored with before next day. Property Manager agreed to refund in full, need to follow up. Looked like a perfect sledding cabin, too bad it couldn't happen.

Response from Big Trees Vacation Rentals
This was most definitely a very big storm. Our staff called all guests prior to arrival alerting them of the storm conditions and giving them the option of coming or staying home. Many still came and some guests came and then left once they arrived to no power in their cabin. Many decided to stay with no power and enjoyed the mounds of snow that fell and the warmth of the wood burning stove in their cabins. Though our company is not responsible for road plowing or restoring of power, I do know that the power company trucks were everywhere working 24 hrs. to put power lines back up and removing down trees that had fallen upon them. With many inches of fresh powder snow that fell, this ended up being a amazing skii weekend for those who decided to weather the storm. The kids had a snow sledding weekend they will never forget!! "THE ADVENTURE OF THE MOUNTAINS".

Mendonca -Littell
Elizabeth L. from Oakland, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in December, 2010
Better indoor lighting for reading and sewing would have been nice.A second snow shovel would have been helpful, plus kitty litter on hand for ice.Wood for fire was plentiful, but no kindling available.A small tool kit (screwdriver, etc.) on hand would have been helpful.Emergency candles and stove for power outages would have been helpful, but fortunately I brought my own!The stairs down to the wood pile become exceptionally icy and dangerous due to the drip from the roof overhang which is positioned right along the stair treads.Having a person on contract to shovel drive was GREAT.

The cabin does host many, many windows. So many people visit up here to take in the outside. The cabin has light fixtures but with the wonderful view and accompanying sunshine the owners decided not to over light the cabin when the cabins location is so scenic.

We liked the home and there is plenty of space for 2 families. The house was very clean and is easily accessible.I would certianly recomment the house as a great escape vacation rental.The only thing we missed was no bedsheets and towels were provided.

We has a great time at this cabin. We had stayed at this cabin 4 years ago and we still like it.
Trini D. from San Jose, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2009
The only concern We had was that the lighter was empty to start a fire and we had forgotten matches. Another thing is that we kept running out of plates.
