“We loved this place!”
Reviewed 29 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I would not only recommend the place which is spacious, clean and very functional for a vacation, but would also give Bill the host an excellent review for being so accommodation and available to answer any questions. The place was very well thought out for someone who had never been there. Also easy to get in and out of as well. Definitely would go back!

“COZY and ECONOMICAL.”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Serene surroundings and quiet ambiance. Super huge pine cones all around which the children were fascinated with. For a party of four... sleeping arrangements were ideal and comfortable. Outside barbecue worked very well and easy to use. I would pick this sight again for aforementioned reasons.

“Great house for a group”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were 4 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen and living area was perfectly suited for us. The upstairs loft gets hot during day in summer, but we were only up there at night so not too bad. Only thing that was really missing was trash bags. Since we were staying for a couple of nights this would have been very helpful.

“Awesome, cabin and location, like home!”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My two kids and I loved our recent stay at Colusa Pines, the best kept cabin we've ever rented! Bill obviously takes pride of ownership to a whole new level! And he makes everything so easy to use with instructions on how to do everything posted conveniently throughout. We walked in and felt right at home...let the relaxation begin! We had a glitch on Tripadvisor's side with the confirmed dates for our stay, but Bill was excellent about getting back to me within minutes (literally) and sorting it out. The location was great, quiet and not too close to neightbors and the neighbors we did meet were awesome and love Bill too. Finally, great beds with great mattresses, which is important and often not what you experience in a cabin rental! I've already recommended this cabin to my friends!

“Fourth of July getaway”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Spacious and comfortable cabin. Nice size kitchen and ample dining space inside and out. BBQ grill worked great! Very short drive to the village, CVS, and grocery stores. Kitchen had everything we needed. Owners are accessible and responded promptly to questions. Only draw back was no gated backyard. I highly recommend this cabin for its space, comfort, and location.

“The Perfect Mountain Getaway!”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My Wife and I regularly book places to stay on trips with Homeaway, VRBO, and Airbnb. But we both agreed that this place was our most favorite experience! We absolutely loved our stay at Colusa Pines, hands down.

The owners were extremely responsive, kind and hospitable, far more than would be expected. They were also very flexible and accommodating with our check-in and check-out times. We would not hesitate a moment to book their place again. Over Memorial Day weekend, on a Sunday we encountered a problem and needed some help, but we thought we won't have much luck getting help considering the holiday Sunday. But the owners immediately responded and helped us out. They made sure we were able to enjoy our stay despite the interruption to their own family time on a Sunday holiday weekend. And they regularly communicated with us whenever we reached out to them throughout our stay.

The cabin is nestled among beautiful pine trees, and the rear deck is such a wonderful place to relax in the mornings and afternoons and enjoy the crisp fresh air and the song of tweety birds while grilling up some tasty bites to eat on the grill. The deck faces a wooded slope with no neighboring house directly in front, which provided nice privacy and a nice view of green pine trees instead of a house. The deck has wrap around seating along the banisters so you can always find a shady spot to sit. The deck itself wraps around to the front of the house where you can linger and enjoy the sun going down in the evening. The owner provides foldout chairs which were perfect for this. At night you can gaze up at the twinkling stars from all around the deck. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our time out on the deck - it is truly a peaceful comfortable place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Inside the cabin, you will find a really well maintained cozy home that has obviously been lovingly cared for, and this was the cleanest house we have rented despite being one of the older houses. No dust or spiderwebs anywhere, and the bathroom was sparkling clean. Just as important, the large windows looking out into the trees were basically spotless, making the view absolutely beautiful and enjoyable.

There are brand new laundry washer dryers which come in very handy (try to remember to bring your own HE type laundry detergent so you don't have to go out and buy some).

The fireplace is great - it's a freestanding unit with a cool design that warms the cabin very effectively.

The bath towels are very clean and fluffy, and there are also handy utility rags provided which we used to wipe down the picnic table on the deck.

We found the location very convenient to all the hiking, dining and shopping we needed.

I could go on and on, but you probably get the idea already that we absolutely loved Colusa Pines Cabin and appreciated the owners' wonderful hospitality. We didn't want to leave! We can't wait to go back again.

I loved staying at Colusa Pines. The cabin is quaint and cozy, and I will definitely be renting the space again with my family. Situated among pine trees and near great food, shopping, lake and dozens of activity possibilities (including many for small children - I cased the neighborhood), this cabin is an excellent choice for a solo trip or for folks traveling in a large party. For solo renters - enjoy yoga on the back deck (like I did), delicious home-cooked meals, serenity, and time for reading, writing, or just watching movies. For those in a larger party, I found an adorable park called Boulder Bay about ten minutes away, delicious food at the Teddy Bear Restaurant in the Village, a bowling alley, movie theater, and picaresque walks and hikes. The cabin also comes with a great supply of awesome board games and puzzles. The space is rustic enough to make you forget cares and stress of living in a big city, and modern enough to include wireless internet access, cable TV, and heating! You will love this spot so much, you will have to go back, like I intend to. Enjoy.
