Overview

Arnold Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-12)

Nestled in the mountains, we are surrounded by tall, fragrant pines… perfect for bringing the family together in this spacious yet cozy cabin with huge loft.

There are 2 bedrooms, each with a Queen bed, and a Cal-King bed and 4 Twins in the loft. The loft also has a separate video/Xbox area plus many games and puzzles and is a great place to keep kids of all ages entertained (baby gate available for stairs). We have free WiFi, a full kitchen, large living room with comfy couches, wood-burning fireplace, and dining table (with leaf) which is perfect for dining together or playing games with the whole family. The wrap-around deck is brand new, pet- and child-friendly, and has a gas BBQ and tables and chairs so you can enjoy the beautiful surrounding trees.

On a special note, our cleaner uses only green, environmentally-friendly products (without adding cost or sacrificing cleanliness) so we can provide a healthier environment for your family and for the beautiful Sierras you’ve come to experience. The house is also up-to-date with smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector for your family’s protection.

WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE SAID:

-- “The cabin was roomy and comfortable. The upstairs loft was great for the kids. They had plenty of room to play and watch movies.” ~Shari, Rohnert Park CA

-- “It is very clean and well kept up. The decorations and small touches are very warm and comfortable, lots of cute touches. You'll immediately feel right at home here.” ~Gary, Vallejo CA

-- “This is a great cabin… with open windows allowing plenty of sun light and views [of the surrounding trees]... This must be the best valued cabin in Arnold!' ~Bill, Manteca CA

-- “Terri & Tim were honest & great to deal with… Look forward to going back with friends next year!” ~Eric, Scotts Valley CA

-- “I live in the SF Bay Area and the drive to Arnold is shorter and much less stressful than the drive to Tahoe. This will definitely be our new winter escape and looking forward to going in the other seasons as well.”

~Kingsley, Palo Alto CA

THINGS TO DO IN THE AREA:

For summertime fun, it’s just a short trip (less than ½ mile) down the hill to Fly-In Lake, complete with a small sandy beach and floating raft for swimming and playing (and don’t forget to watch the geese “fly in” at dusk!). Nearby is an 18-hole golf course as well as the Blue Lake Springs Recreation Center where your family is welcome to use our Owner’s Pass to enjoy the swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball, ping pong, bocce courts, volleyball and outdoor movies shown during the warm summer nights. With our pass, the Rec Center is $8/person or $25/family per day and $45/person or $125/family per week.

In the winter months, Bear Valley ski resort, just a 25-minute drive to the east, is known as a family-friendly, affordable resort, which offers excellent downhill and cross-country skiing for all skill levels, as well as other popular winter activities such as are sledding, snowshoeing, snowboarding and snowmobiling. (And don't forget mountain biking and hiking in the summer!)

Not to be missed in any season is Big Trees State Park where you can experience the Giant Sequoia Redwoods standing 150 feet tall and 30 feet across. With great nature and hiking trails perfect for all ages, this park is less than a 10-minute drive away and a great opportunity to see some of California’s true gems.

Fishing, boating and other water activities abound in one of the many lakes, streams and rivers including the Stanislaus River, Alpine Lake (our favorite!), Mokelumne River, Bear Creek, Rattlesnake Creek, New Melones Lake, Mosquito Lake, Union & Utica Reservoirs, New Spicer Reservoir and many others.

And don’t forget a visit to the nearby Gold Rush towns of Murphys (quaint downtown with shops & restaurants) and Colombia (preserved 1850’s main street, carriage rides, old-time photos, panning for gold) as well as many award-winning wineries and tasting rooms, three golf courses, or three of the area’s breathtaking caverns (California, Mercer and Moaning) which are open for exploring and tours.

Phone numbers and website links to many of the above attractions are on our website at ArnoldVacation(dot)com - Things To Do In The Area page.

We always enjoy ourselves so much when we’re in this area and know your family will too. Re-connect, have fun, and make yourselves at home!

About The Owner

Tim, originally from Santa Rosa and making trips to Arnold since he was a boy, purchased the cabin in 1999 and it quickly became the location for family gatherings and lots of fun all year round. Terri joined the family in 2004 and instantly fell in love with the area as well. Unfortunately we now live in southern California and are unable to get to our “home away from home” as often as we’d like… So we’ve opened it up for friends and family to enjoy. And now we invite our “new friends” from VRBO - you are welcome anytime!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1999

Why The Owner chose Arnold

Fresh air, tall redwoods, hiking, skiing, rivers and lakes, caverns... and great wine tasting in quaint Gold Rush towns. Need we say more!

What makes this cabin unique

Relaxing outdoors on the large deck with trees all around, or inside on the comfy couches with a big fire. Add some hot chocolate or glass of wine... Heaven!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Loved getting away right before Thanksgiving to enjoy the mountains. We had 4 adults and 5 kids and there was plenty of room for all. The cabin is exactly the way it is described. Everything was clean and well taken care of. We loved exploring Mercer Caverns and hiking in Big Trees State Park. We will definitely rent again!

We love Arnold but this clean comfy cabin made our stay even better. We loved the spacious loft plenty of room up there for the kids. The deck is relaxing or cozy up by the big fire place. I love that is plenty of beds if you have a large family. The cabin is close enough to the market & the brewery (good food) also just a short jaunt to Big Trees State park. I can't wait to stay here again & again. Thank you Terri & Tim for opening your beautiful cabin.

Great place to stay!

This house was great!! Very homey and comfortable and plenty of room for our group of 6. All was clean and as they said it would be and Terri was great to work with. There is a great deck that wraps around the house with beautiful trees all around. We loved sitting out there for our morning cup of coffee. The cabin is easy distance to Big Trees State Park which we loved. We will definitely be back again! Thanks Terri and Tim for opening up your home and letting us stay there!

Had a great time.

Really enjoyed the cabin as this was our first time and having no idea what to expect. Lots of close things to see. We actually only had one full day to sightseeing so we visited Mercer Caverns and Moaning caverns and road the steam train in Rail Town. very busy but a blast.

Enjoyed a lovely getaway over Labor Day. We had two families and we got perfectly in this darling cabin. The sleeping loft and TV area was perfect for the 4 kids and the rooms downstairs were perfect for the parents. The home is comfy and spacious with a large deck for hanging out in the cool mountain air. The kitchen is stocked for all your cooking needs, and the wi-fi keeps you linked to your life back home. There are movies and games as well as a member's pass to the local swimming pool/club. The neighborhood is great for a brisk walk with lots of cabins and forestland to see. It is also 10 minutes away from the beautiful Calaveras Big Trees State Park for hiking and picnicking. I am already planning a Girls' Getaway for later this month because we had such fun!
