  • Great Property


    The property is as pictured and very clean. The back yard is fenced to keep your dogs safe. The host has thought of everything. We will look for this property again on our next trip.

  • Clean and nice house near the Sly lake


    Loved the property. Only thing that prevented five star is noise from the Sly Park Road. It gets quite noisy when bikes and trucks pass by. The property is located right next to the road.

  • Very clean sweet house


    Cute cabin home. Very clean which I appreciate. Good communication from the host. Nice outdoor area great for dogs. Unfortunately no fire pit (not even a gas one) although I thought the photos showed one. wish they had a hot tube outside (:

    There’s a great tube inside for relaxing though.

    Honestly was not a fan of the reservoir, very busy and not the cleanest water. But that’s not related to the house just the general area.

    It is right on the corner of a pretty busy road. because it’s on a hill, when you sit outside you sometimes can’t hear what the other person is saying because the vehicles are so loud. Bring gear plugs for sleeping if you’re sensitive.

    Nice for a family for sure, not ideal for two couples because the upstairs doesn’t have a door and the living room doesn’t have a nice big couch .

    Over all had a wonderful stay and enjoyed dinners and breakfast on the patio.

    Ela, we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay, but we’re sorry other aspects fell short of expectations. After sending your feedback to the owner, they’d like to share the following:

    - Thank you for your kind words about our property. We take the accuracy of our listing seriously and verified we do not advertise a fire pit on our property as we are unable to get a permit for a fire pit in Pollock Pines anymore due to fire hazards. We also don't have a hot tub. We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs.

    We do all we can to make our homes the best possible stays, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. Thank you for your feedback.

  • Perfect snow getaway


    Apple Chalet is a bright, elegant, well appointed cabin that had everything we needed to enjoy a cozy stay during the recent snow storms, handyman to shovel the driveway included! It is far enough off the freeway to offer a respite in the Sierras while still being close enough to anything you might need.The fenced in yard for our small dog to roam was much appreciate as well. We would easily visit again!

  • So cute and so clean!


    What a cute house! My family of three loved our time here and will definitely be back! The house is exactly as pictured, but even more charming in person. And SO clean! Definitely as clean as any five star hotel, which we are trying to get away from in favor of more space, quiet, and privacy. I even went under a bed to access an extension cord and it was immaculate underneath - not a dust bunny in sight. It’s also so organized with labels everywhere so you know exactly what’s what. We had hoped for snow during our trip but missed it by a few days and the owner recommended a place to find some nearby which saved us a trip to a traditional crowded snow park. We also found the area cute with enough to do for a long weekend with great food nearby. It’s also quiet despite being on the corner of a main road, and we’re fairly sensitive to noise. I’d love to find a more powerful heater in the downstairs game room as it was pretty chilly in winter, but my 12 year old son played down there fully content regardless (all the other spaces have great heaters). There are also two spiral staircases in the home to be aware of if that’s of concern, but the master bedroom is on the main floor with a wonderful clawfoot tub. All three beds were extremely comfortable as well, which is truly appreciated. 5 stars all around and we’re looking forward to more time here in the future!
