“A group of Catalina Friends Up for the Weekend”
Seven of us friends from Catalina fell in love with the picture of this cabin. Perfect for the dog and roomy for everyone. Walking thru the door of the cabin defintely took our breath away, not because of the beauty but because the carpet was so dirty that the entire place smelled dirty and musty. There were cob webs on the kitchen chandelier and the bathroom lights. There were missing light bulbs in the kitchen, there were broken chairs and towel bars. There were even baby ants in both bathrooms, we found them in the bed as well. The kitchen garbage and floors were dirty. Coming from a resort community on Catalina Island, expectations of the housekeeping are high even if it's a cabin in the woods. One last thing, the rooms are roomy, but the living room is so small that we could not all sit in it. It sits only 5 people comfortable (three on the small couch, two in the chairs). We still had fun, did a lot where we were away. It was appreciated that it was pet friendly with the fenced yard. Keep in mind that if you take a taxi to the bowling alley it will cost you $70 round trip including a tip.

This is our second time returning back to Nine "9" Pines Lodge and were happy. We are glad to see the recommendations were taking serious and in action. We love staying there because its comfortable. The only minor concern we had was the dining table chairs, there were a few lose that we used the fold up chairs. Other than that the stay was awesome and thank you for the improvements such as the cement parking area and 2nd floor bathroom. Thank you! and will be back next year

“It was the perfect little get away for our family!!”
Congratulations to the owners. You have done yourselves proud. Your place was clean, cozy and completely equipped. There were seven of us - two older adults, three young adults and two teens. We spent lots of time playing cards and board games (remember those?). We cooked fun meals in your very well equipped kitchen. We definitely look forward to renting this cabin again! Thanks for doing it right.
“The best Huerta/Liuzzi family vacation!!!”
The "9 pines" cabin was everything we thought it would be. We traveled with 4 adults and 5 kids. The living arrangements were perfect, just enough space. The location of the cabin is situated perfectly with the back of the cabin facing the afternoon sun. The front has a room enough for a small sled run. Perfect for the kids to play. The distance from the cabin to the mountain and to local stores was perfect, not to close but not to far to get lost. The beds in the cabin are older and the living room furniture was a little old and dirty. Nothing that you couldn't cover with a blanket or survive for a fun weekend getaway. We cooked all weekend and the utensils were hard to come by, so be prepared and bring your own along with paper plates and etc. Our family just loved the stay here, the cabin had such a warm feel to it, like you were in a real log cabin. The kids absolutely loved it. We are making this cabin our annual winter cabin to come to every year we enjoyed our stay so much. Thanks for the wonderful trip!!!
“Cute and cozy”
We had a pleasant stay at this cabin for the most part. It is pretty small for 8 people. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and, even though everyone had room to sleep, there wasn't a lot of space to just hang out. One of the beds upstairs was very comfortable, the other was not at all. The water pressure is extremely low. Overall, the cabin is pretty dark and the upstairs is very cold (even with the heater on). We would stay again simply based on the fact that it was a good location, reasonable price, and newer and cleaner than other cabins we've stayed at. It is a very cute and cozy cabin. I would probably return with less people.
Response from the manager Thank you for completing our survey Our Nine Pines Lodge has very hands on owners Here is a message from them; We have installed a shower upstairs, replace the downstairs shower curtain with a glass sliding shower door, built in a knotty pine bookcase in the living room, and totally refurnished the living room with "log style" furnishings and added a picnic bench. We plan to keep improving things each time we return for visits, but meanwhile we wanted you to know that we are trying to make our costumer's happy. There you have it, everone here cares about your stay. Come vacation at our Nine Pines Lodge soon!!!
Reading other reviews and yes I agree the minor downfalls 1) parking - it was muddy so there is no pavement 2) one bathroom has only one shower head 3) one of dressers door was broken 4) shower pressure is low and water is either hot or cold. It is perfect people for a small size family of 8 due to size of the home. The house is not spacious and be ready for the stairs. My family liked the house because it was cozy and felt like we were in the woods. They did love the bath/jacuzzi upstairs. The house was clean when we arrived and had essential basic needs. Checking in and out was great service.
“Overall good, very cozy”
The place was clean and well equiped. the bedrooms were comfortable. My only complaint and disappointment was the driveway/ desinated parking area. It had snow/ice big paddle of water. very unsafe for entering or existing our vehicle. Also the water pressure in the downstair shower was too low. almost unable to rinse properly.
“Clean smaller cabin”
The cabin was cute but definetly small for a four bedroom. There were some inconveniences with the cabin such as only one shower the other bathroom is a tub. This wouldn't have been that big of deal if the water pressure wasn't so bad takes 15 mins to take a quick shower. The beds are not super comfy but still a decent place to stay.
I liked very much, may be I?LL return the next year
We had an awesome time. The cabin was great, a tight fit for eight but very cozy. Would definitely return:)
