Arnold House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-10)

The Jewel of Blue Lake Springs. Our home is 3000 sq. ft of well appointed furnishings, hardwood floors, wood walls and vaulted ceilings. Views from every room, and each has its own sliding door for access to one of the three wood decks. Casa de Montana (Mountain House) is considered one of the finest homes in all of Blue Lake Springs. Guests have access (a nominal fee applies) to Snowflake Lodge, private swimming pool, ping pong, basketball, tennis, and two private lakes. The driveway is level, so winter access is easy.

The Master suite has a cal King bed with pillow top mattress, the en suite has a large walk-in shower, with separate jetted Jacuzzi tub. The vanity is equipped with two sinks.

Guest room number one, also has a Cal-King bed with pillow top mattress, guest room number two has a queen bed, and room number four has two twin beds and one large futon.

Living room equipped with iHome which is a dock to accommodate your iPod or iPhone for music

There is another full bath downstairs, and a half bath just off of the kitchen.

Nestled on the door steps of the Stanislus National Forest at the 4000 foot level is Arnold, California. Arnold is ideally located just 30 minutes. from Bear Valley with snowmobiling, snowshoeing, downhill and cross country skiing in the winter. Hiking and mountain biking in the summer. Fish and boat on Lake Alpine, water & jet ski, on Lake Don Pedro, or New Melones Res.

Explore the historic town of Columbia, Angels Camp, Jackson or Sonora, all a short drive away.

Golf is only 15 minutes away at Forest Meadows, Sequoia Woods, a private club is only 8 minutes away. Or for the beginner, Meadowmont, an easy nine hole is just 3 minutes away.

Also throughout Calaveras County, visit the many area wineries, or take in an outdoor concert at both the Ironstone Vineyard Amphitheater, or the Bear Valley Music Festival.

15 minutes away in Murphys, galleries, monthly festivals and Shakespeare in the park. Or the Frog Jump festival in Angels Camp every summer. The Moaning Caverns with a zip line is also very close by.

5 miles away is Big Trees State Park with groves of the giant Sequoias, recognized as the most majestic tree in the world.

Arnold, Gateway to the Sierras, a true four season climate, boundless activities, with something for everyone.

Beautiful home, no amenities

  • 3 of 5
It looks like it has been a while since the last reviewers have reviewed this property. I am not sure what has happened in the time that has passed. The house is very nice and clean. However, we were struck by the lack of amenities of this place. The kitchen is not stocked at all. There is no cutting board, no sharp knives, no measuring cups, no colander (what kind of place has no colandar for boiling pasta??). Many of the dishes were chipped. The dishwasher was leaking water all over the floor, so we disconnected the water to the dishwasher and spent our whole weekend washing dishes. The king sized bed downstairs was soft and lumpy, so my husband and I slept on the floor in the room with the twin beds instead, where our children slept (the other beds were occupied by the other family we were with).

Owner's Response: Hello Mike,

Thank you for your feedback as we strive to have everything in order to insure a comfortable stay for our guests.

I'll address items you commented on.

1) Kitchen utensils. I'm at a loss on how these items would go missing, but I assure you, when we placed our home in the vacation rental system, it was fully stocked. These items will be replenished within a matter of days.

2) Dishwasher. Unfortunate timing, one never knows when a mechanical device is going to break, and we are truly sorry for the inconvenience you and family endured. Certainly, with hardwood in the kitchen, we wouldn't knowingly leave a leaking appliance in use. This has already been repaired, with the installation of a brand new stainless steel dishwasher

3) Downstairs bed. That could certainly be a matter of "personal preference" as some people like firm beds and some like them soft. That bed does have the undulating foam topper on it, and I suspect, thats what you felt.

We appreciate you pointing out the missing items in the kitchen, and apologize again for the mishap with the dishwasher.

Sincerely,
Tom & Debra

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5
There are cabins, and then there are homes! We've been going to Bear Valley every winter for the past 10 years, and have always rented a cabin in Blue Lake Springs (as we have friends you live there fulltime). This year we decided to step up to find more "comfortable" accomodations, and were we ever impressed. The owners here have thought of everything. Dare I say, this home is almost too nice to be a vacation rental. We have no need to look elsewhere when we return next ski season. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

What else can be said about this incredible home away from home. Every detail and need are addressed with this beautiful house.

No hotel or B&B can ever match the comfort, furnishings and price.

We are hooked and will make this a part of our yearly vacation spots from here on out.
