You may also park one car in the GARAGE

Xfinity cable TV

Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ , HBOMax, ESPN+ INCLUDED

Lots of Board games and books (especially kids' books).

Whole House Generator to keep the lights on during power outages.

Note for LARGE GROUPS: We think our chalet is most comfortable for groups of 8 or fewer -- plenty of sleeping options and room to spread out. However, we can sleep up to 11, although it will be snug. Also, due to the extra wear and tear, especially on the septic and water usage, we charge an extra person fee for groups over 8 guests (automatically added to the quote).

You have access to the whole house and GARAGE.

We do not live locally but are available by phone, email, or through the app. Our wonderful cleaner is available on-location for immediate needs.


Immediately after booking you will receive a link to a separate Rental Agreement from Evergreen Dorrington Chalet. This agreement must be e-signed in order for the booking to take effect.

In addition, we require a separate security deposit credit card hold of $250, released within 5 days after check-out. Submission of the credit card is a requirement of Evergreen Dorrington Chalet, separate from any requirements of Airbnb.


Like many cabins in the area, we do not have regular trash pickup and we, therefore, require guests to dispose of their own trash either by taking it home or to the local dump on their way out of town.

If you choose to leave trash behind we will withhold a $150 trash removal fee from your security deposit or as a payment request through the booking platform. This fee is waived for bookings that check out on either Wednesdays or Thursdays or on days when the dump, is closed). There is a convenient free trash dump on your way out of town in Avery (more directions/instructions provided after booking).

The first 20 kWh of charging during your stay is free! After that, we will charge $0.50/kWh for charging. We will deduct the fee from the security deposit hold that is released after checkout.


You are welcome to bring along up to two well-behaved, house-trained dogs. We charge $100 for one pet and $200 for two pets. If you have more than one pet and were only charged $100 through Airbnb, we will submit a request through Airbnb for the additional pet fee after you have arrived.

Please describe your furry friends and their behavior/personality when you book!


No refunds for storms, poor regional air quality, or weather-related outages (Comcast, PG&E, etc).

In the winter we strongly encourage you to drive a 4-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) vehicle and/or be experienced with tire chains.
We encourage you to stay informed as best you can about weather forecasts and any planned electric utility outages. The cabin has an automatic generator to supply power to the house during a power outage.

The generator will not, however, maintain broadband internet or cable television if the Comcast substations go down due to a widespread power outage. We may have an emergency internet workaround, but that is not guaranteed. We do the best we can to provide you with full amenities, but rural mountain life has its challenges.

We encourage you to consider purchasing a separate low-cost travel insurance policy that can provide you coverage for last-minute cancellations. As part of the Evergreen Dorrington booking process, we offer you the option to purchase trip insurance from a 3rd party provider.


Please note: cell phone reception is limited in the Arnold/Dorrington area. VERIZON (and its partners like Tracfone, Xfinity Mobile) tends to be the only provider that works. For this reason, we provide a *LANDLINE PHONE* available for your use.

Meet The Host

I am Chelsea Vaughn, proud co-owner, with my husband Bobby, of Evergreen Dorrington Chalet and Cottage. I am a Colorado native who loves to travel, hike, and spend quality time with family and friends. I love Dorrington because it gives me a taste of the Rockies, but is much closer to my Bay Area home! Welcoming guests to Evergreen Dorrington properties has been a joy.
