Staying here was an amazing experience. The house is beautiful. We showed up on Thursday to about a foot of snow on the deck and roof. Walked inside to a warm and cozy house, that was very easy to make yourself very comfortable. That night is snowed all night long. We woke up to about 8" of snow on all of the cars. Great time! All the rooms were very spacious, and my dogs absolutely loved the place. First time in the snow for them and they were having a ball. Hilary is a very nice lady to deal with. I highly recommend this house to anyone, any age, with animals or not. Thank you for a great trip. We will return to stay at Chesa Madrisa!
We have rented locations for many years now and this is the first time that I have wanted to complete a review, though I am hesitant to do so only because I selfishly want to keep this my little secret paradise! The home was spacious, VERY tastefully decorated, fully supplied and accommodating. Hillary was gracious and we were welcomed with doggie treats and people treats in the form of a delicious bottle of wine from a local winery. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with quality and working kitchen equipment, no need to go hunting for the one sharp knife in this place. I would recommend Chesa Madrisa any time of year!
We (two families) rented this house for the labor day weekend. The house is nicely situated right next to the Calaveras Big Trees State Park which is a must see. We also drove from the house to Murphy (vine tasting) and Angel Camp (swim in Lake New Melones) Other than the great location this house is also great to spend time and enjoy the company of each other in the house. The house is large and the fireplace in the family room allows everyone to be comfortable at the same time in the same place. We were also fortunate to have Hillary as the property manager. She was great. She always responded whithin a short period and even send a reply to our email quite late the day we arrived for a minor issue. The house is modern with all amenities you would expect from a house in this price range. I hight recommend this for a weekend escape or a longer stay in the area.
My wife and I enjoyed the Chesa Madrisa mountain home with our friends for a long weekend. Conveniently located a few miles from anything you could need yet secluded enough to really relax, unwind and reset away from the everyday grind. The home is much nicer than advertised, well appointed, clean and inviting indoor and out. We really enjoyed the outdoor spaces with porches all around. With a party of 6 we stayed very comfortable and never felt as if we were cramped for space. Three King rooms all with full baths eases the pain of deciding which couple gets the "Good room". They are equally elegant. I cant wait for our next visit
I recently stayed at the Chesa Madrisa with two other couples. It was the perfect location for a great weekend get away in the big pines!! The house is new, modern, clean and beautiful. We wanted for nothing. There were three King bed suites with private baths that made it perfect for 3 couples. Each room was elegantly arranged and extremely comfortable. The common areas were large enough for everyone to sit and visit, the deck was cool in the evening and inviting. The kitchen had everything you could imagine. Very nicely stocked. The owner communicated with me very quickly and effectively. Gave me advise when I asked and was available for suggestions. There was a bottle of wine on the counter when we arrived with a simple welcome card. Nice touch. There is a trending creep with owners to charge for linen, towels, toiletries and such items. This house has it all included and in find quality. My compliments to the owner/manager of this home and I ask that you maintain this standard. It adds to the whole experience. If you are planning a stay in the Big Trees, Murphy, or Columbia area, I'd give a hard look at the Madrisa! It is a very comfortable stay... Highly recommended.
