About Serena Chapman

We're a San Francisco Bay Area family with two kids heading off to college.

Serena Chapman purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Serena Chapman chose Arnold

We love the Sierras and have been vacationing here, Summers and Winters, for more than twenty years. It provides so many outdoor fun activities including hiking, skiing, biking,swimming, and many others. There's also fun small town boutique shopping, antiquing, wine tasting, and restaurants. Whimsy is located within walking distance to the Sequoia Woods Country Club and a short drive or bike ride to Snow Flake Lodge and the lakes.

What makes this chalet unique

We really enjoy the fresh mountain air, the tall trees, and the view down the golf course. When our kids were younger, we would go skiing at Bear Valley every other weekend.

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Whimsy is a perfect place to stay for a family with grandparents, children and grandchildren. When we arrived, it was spotless; all the beds were made with clean sheets and all the bathrooms were completely stocked with soft clean towels and the air conditioning was on. We could not have expected more. The kitchen was well stocked and the deck was perfect for entertaining and had a beautiful view of the 17th/18th hole.

There was room for everyone to have their own space. The downstairs media room for the kids gave the adults time to visit comfortably on the deck. This vacation home was exactly the way it was described on VRBO and we hope to rent it again next summer. It is a true find!

Wonderful time at Whimsy!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (10) gathered to celebrate our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary together. We had a wonderful time at Whimsey!. The cabin accommodated all us with ease. Having 3 bathrooms was a plus. It was great to have everyone under one roof. The cabin was very clean and maintained well. Kitchen well supplied.
The family created many fond memories playing golf, fishing, swimming, hiking and returning to Whimsey for a relaxing evening on the deck grilling dinner and playing cards. We look forward to future stays at Whimsy!!

A Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 delightful days at Whimsy, with our children and grandchildren. The house was perfect for us; everyone had their own bed and space. The media room downstairs entertained the kids with the huge selection of DVDs. We enjoyed barbequeing on the deck, and the spacious kitchen was great for all the chefs in our group. (We do recommend replacing the brush for the B-B-Q). We spent most of Saturday at Big Trees Park, which was celebrating Family Day, which added even more to the beauty of the park.
The property manager, Jennifer Hockett, is a real gem. The house was spotless, and the furnishings very upscale. We hadn't expected such great sofas and chairs. Also, the beds were all very comfortable, which we had not experienced on previous rental homes.
Another final comment regarding Jennifer. She found my cell phone, which I had left behind. She had it in the mail, and I received it a day later. Thanks again, Jennifer!

Another Magical Stay at Whimsy

  • 5 of 5
As always, we had the most amazing time at Whimsy. The house is beautiful and extremely well cared for. Whimsy is so full of big and small thoughtful touches that make it a truly wonderful experience. Each morning, the family gathered on the back deck to enjoy the beautiful view of the trees and golf course and every night we sat out there again to enjoy a delicious dinner which was made easy in the gourmet kitchen. We could not ask for more. The kids thoroughly enjoyed taking over the downstairs as their playroom and also had blast visiting Blue Lake to swim all day. Thank you for letting us stay in your gorgeous home and providing our family with a fabulous, relaxing, fun, vacation. I look forward to many, many, many, more stays to come.

An outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5
My family just concluded a wonderful vacation in Arnold and Whimsy was everything the owner said it would be plus more. Not only are there 5 bedrooms and 3 baths but they have a wonderful little room in the lowest level with wonderful chairs and a big TV. The kitchen was full of good things--there wasn't anything that we needed and expected that we didn't find. The deck isn't large but there is plenty of room for 10-12 people and it is fun to sit there and hassle the golfers on the 17th green. The week we were there was very hot and this house has state-of-the-art airconditioning that worked wonderfully. I have no complaints but would suggest the owner write instructions for using the television----its tough to be an old, non electronic dummy.
