Great Vacation Spot for a Family Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights, 4 days at the Springville cabin property and had a blast. The property itself is in great condition and provided a lot of fun activities for us both on-site and close nearby. The guest cabin is very private (separate unit) so perfect for a family who has small kids and would need some privacy. My only critique/criticism of the property is that there are house rules plastered all over the place which to us was a bit overkill. We get it.. you want to keep the house in good condition but also provide a fair warning to guests that additional fees could be imposed if anything is damaged during your stay, but it's a bit much. Literally every wall in the place had a sign posted.. some had 2 or 3 :) With that said, I would consider returning to the property another year. It was a very peaceful and quiet get-away for the extended family. Oh and Shelley is great to work with too! Very responsive and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you Elizabeth for your compliments and comments. Oh yes, we do have quite a few little signs. I tried putting instructions and notices in the guest information book, but most did not read them. :-) I reasoned that having information at hand was possibly less annoying than having to go to the information binder whenever you have a questions about an appliance. It is an unfamiliar house with unfamiliar systems, in a rural area with customs and protocol unfamiliar to most guests who live in the city. Our liability insurance requires that we post warnings and instructions about the pool and the wood stove. We also have little instructional signs (some guests have said they were helpful) about how to use the TV, dishwasher, wood stove, ceramic cooktop, and what not to put down the drain because of the septic system (this can ruin your vacation). And yes, I do have a couple of signs about what not to do with the towels and cookware after having chronic problems with having to replace them because of misuse. It is unfortunate, for our guests who are conscientious, to be burdened with those signs. Unfortunately, I never know who will benefit and who will be merely annoyed (because they get it already), and they are the only means of communication about certain issues that has been effective (no more ruined towels or teflon cookware, or large pots of spaghetti down the garbage disposal). So apologies in advance (to future guests) and after the fact to you. :-)

An Unique Find!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from three nights spent at the Bear Spring Cabin. It was a unique property. The house itself was comfortable, well taken care of, and had many unique features. Having teenagers, we were happy that there was no connectivity. We actually spent time as a family without interruption. Our daughters LOVED the game room. They logged many hours of pool.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bear Spring Cabin. It was a great place to return to after a day of hiking (Balch Park, Mountain Home State Forest, and Sequoia National Forest all have some great trails) or even spend the entire day there enjoying the pool. The game room is a really nice feature as well and we put it to good use. Having spent many vacations in VRBO rentals, I would also like to mention that of all the places we have stayed, Shelly was a most responsive and accommodating host! Thank you for a great week!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic luxury house, great furnishings, well equipped and extremely spacious. Pool and games room were a bonus. Provision of pool towels was appreciated. Guest cabin was very generous size too.

We were visited by humming birds, quail, chipmunks and squirrels. Location was peaceful.

Springville had some lovely little thrift and craft shops.

We would definitely stay here again.

The best get away ever.

  • 5 of 5

The home, guest home, pool and landscaping were beautiful. Morning coffee on the deck was amazing with a view many people only dream of. The back porch was so nice in the evening with a glass of wine and completely silent with only the sounds of nature. We loved all the gathering places both inside and out! The drive up the mountain is absoulty breath taking. We highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful serene get away. WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE THERE !!
