Dog Woods Cabin
FUNky hidden gem!
Our family loves Dog Woods Cabin! This was our second trip (the first was in the winter), and we’re already planning to go back. The cozy funky vibe is hard to beat. Great location, quiet and private, and we can bring our dog. We went to dinner at one of the clubhouses, spent an afternoon at White Pines Lake, and hiked to Top of the World. This cabin was the perfect homebase for our weekend recharge from the Bay Area. Highly recommend!

We had an excellent time at Robin’s cabin over the weekend. It was fully equipped, the directions were clear, and the rooms were very comfortable. We loved the decorations and the beautiful trees on the property. Would absolutely return.

Robin is an excellent host - clear directions on how to respect the space, more than accommodating to us while we were dealing with poor weather. Beautiful cabin, very private and tranquil. Highly recommend.

Everything is great except the WiFi. You can’t have more than devices use it at the same time.
