Arnold House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

My Father built the Sopinski Cabin over 30 years ago where my family spent summers, winters & weekends during my growing up years. This wonderful place provided for my brother and me a childhood filled with fun, activity, sports & memories that my family would like to now share with you.

Our cabin is located on a level lot at a 4000 ft elevation in Arnold, CA. We are within minutes from Angel's Camp, Sonora, Murphy's & Bear Valley Ski Resort. With a wrap-around deck surrounded by pines, our cabin provides an ideal spot to enjoy all the Sierra's have to offer without the hassle of too much snow, traffic or isolation. We are walking distance to many activities and only a minute's drive to many more. Our cabin is ideal for families, pets & adults who wish to go, go, go or just relax on the deck. Whatever your vacation's needs, you can find them here at the Sopinski Cabin.

Thank you for your interest in our home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

About Amy Waterman

Hello, my name is Amy Waterman. My father, Ted Sopinski, built our cabin when my brother, Steve, and I were young. We have been spending time in Arnold since we were born and have made it a very important part of our lives. My mom & dad are retired and living in Sonoma County. My brother, Steve lives in Rocklin with his two sons & dog. My husband, Jeff, and I live in Santa Rosa with our daughter, two dogs, three cats, rat & fish. We visit our cabin whenever possible and hope you find it to be a magical place for your family too!

Amy Waterman purchased this house in 1980

Why Amy Waterman chose Arnold

Before I was born, a salesman asked my father to come to Arnold in order to look at properties. He and his best friend from Lockheed drove up to Arnold with their wives and the salesman. After spending the weekend in Arnold, they knew this was a place they wanted to spend time. My father and his friend purchased a lot together & each bought thier own. They built a large cabin together for our two families where we spent every minute in Arnold we possibly could. After many years, our friends bought a business and moved up. We sold our joint cabin and my father then built the one we have today nearly 30 years ago. We still love Arnold & the surrounding area as much as the day we found it.

What makes this house unique

The most wonderful aspect to Arnold is its peacefulness. It truly feels like a vacation. When at our cabin, we feel as though we are worlds away from the busy, every day life of home. We love the diversity of the area and all it has to offer. The activities are perfect for our family...some of our favorites are hanging out at the pool in the summer time, visiting Columbia State Historic Park on a regular basis & sledding in the winter. Our most favorite activity, however, is relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine working on a puzzle or cross word with the most perfect weather & serenity.

Very cozy

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely holiday time at the cabin. Very cozy and beautiful views of the trees from all the windows. All is as described. I would recommend it for a cozy, cute place to stay, great for kids, very comfy, the beds are great. Close to fun adventures in Columbia and we went sledding at Bear Valley. Walks in the neighborhood were awesome. Love that you provide linens and pets are welcome. My 9 year old son only recommends a basketball hoop in the driveway:)

Special Place

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! The neighborhood has so much to offer with the community center pool, lakes, fishing and so on. The area is full if great sights such as caverns, the giant sequoias, and lakes. Restaurants are great. Murphy's is right near buy for an easy day of wine tasting, shopping, and fine dining.
The cabin is all that and more. It had everything we needed and more. Plenty of room, the deck is huge, and the kitchen stove is awesome! Cant say enough about the place. I know we will be coming back again.

Come stay here!

  • 5 of 5
The Sopinski Cabin was beautifully taken care of, stocked with everything one could need, (including zip loc bags for leftovers!). We were very comfortable there, and it was a lovely place to come "home" to at the end of a busy day of sightseeing, etc. The listing was accurate, the photos relect the rental, the property was very clean and well manages, the owner very helpful throughout the whole process, and we would definitely recommend to friends, and even return ourselves. We attended the County Fair complete with jumping frogs, visited caves, wineries, Big Trees State Park, all the small historic towns in the area and had some great onions rings at Snowhoe's Brewery!
Please come stay here, you won't be disapointed !!!!

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Finding this property was a blessing. The cabin felt like home from the moment we walked in the door. Comfortable, quiet and equipped with everything you would need or expect to have for your time away. Our two small dogs loved it and the fenced in deck allowed us all to enjoy ourselves without worry. A great place to recharge, get creative, relax and be good to yourself. This cabin is very well managed and maintained and the entire experience couldn't have been made any easier for us. We will definitely stay again as it truly was the escape that our family needed.

Cozy, comfortable and convenient -- all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5
This is our idea of a mountain cabin -- with a little bit of history, real wood paneling, a big fireplace, oversized leather furniture in the living room, a big deck and a great bbq. Amy and family have paid attention to all the little touches, and include linens, which most Blue Lake Springs rentals don't. We have been coming to the area for 18 years and this is one of the best cabins we've rented. Some people might like fancier/bigger/modern houses, but give us something with charm and warmth any day. Kitchen was well equipped and they even left a bottle of wine for us. We'll be back!
