  • Such a great stay!


    The house was amazing! We had a wonderful time playing games and hanging out. All the rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable! It was a close drive into town and about a 30 min drive to Bear Valley. We will definitely be coming back to the area again!

  • Great cabin for our family over Christmas


    My wife and I stayed at the cabin over Christmas, along with our young adult children and our dog. The cabin was an easy 25 minute drive to the lodge at Bear Valley Ski Resort. Arnold is a nice mountain town. (Pro-tip: rent your skis from SNAC on your way into town.)

    Anyway, the cabin was well equipped. The fireplace was very cozy, as was the bed in the master bedroom. The dishwasher and the stove all worked well. We didn't make use of the deck and the grill, and the hammock was put away for the winter. But I could see how pleasant it would be to relax there in the summer while grilling something. The local grocery store had an impressive local wine selection.

    The driveway could accommodate four vehicles, but we only had two. It could get crowded with four vehicles.

  • Cute cabin


    This home was a good size for our group- 4 adults and one toddler. The house is cutely decorated and the bathrooms are nice. Perfect location. Our only wish was if there were bath mats for the floor and a nonslip surface to the bathtubs. The patio table on the deck could also use some love - we didn’t end up eating outdoors despite the good weather.

  • Great House and Location


    Set in the trees with a daily view of deer and squirrels. Extremely close to multiple places to eat, a market and shops so don't sweat it if you forgot something. You are only a few miles from the Calaveras Big Trees State Park and the Arnold Rim Trail is a 3 min drive

    This house has been renovated recently, they did a very nice job in the bathrooms especially. The internet is extremely fast, so working remotely and taking video calls had zero issues.

    We had a few hiccups but Heather was super responsive and got everything ironed out quickly.

  • Great cabin in Arnold


    Every year, a group of five of us get together at a vacation rental in rural Northern California. This year we chose this outstanding cabin in Arnold. The cabin exceeded our expectations! The kitchen was fully stocked, and between ping pong, corn hole, and ladder ball, there was hardly a down moment. When we did relax, the front deck was incredible. It was private and there was abundant wildlife including many deer, squirrels and even a family of raccoons. In the evening, we loved that we were able to access Prime Video and Netflix to watch a few movies. The location of the cabin was ideal. We enjoyed a couple of visits to Calaveras Big Trees State Park (breathtaking, and only four miles away), White Pines Park (fishing, hiking, pickle ball less than a mile away), and the quaint town of Murphys was less than a 15 minute drive. As a group, we have never stayed in the same place twice over the last 27 years, but this cabin may be the exception. We are already talking about booking again for next year's get together. If we could give it more than 5 Stars, we would!!!
