Why Margarita Baca or Curtis Smith chose Arnold

We fell in love with Calaveras County during multiple camping trips at Big Trees State Park. We love the area because it is so beautiful and it offered so many activities without being as crowded at Yosemite or Tahoe. After, adopting three children we began renting cabins for trips with our children and their friends. It was a 'dream come true', when we were able to buy our own home in Arnold. We chose this house because we wanted a place where the children could have their own space and we could have a place that is quiet and relaxing. The layout of this home provided that for us. We also wanted a site that felt secluded, without being too far from conveniences, eg, grocery stores, restaurants....

Great house for summer or winter

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend staying at La Vida Buena. The house is perfect for 1 family or 2. We loved the open floor plan and the apartment (bedroom, kitchen and living area) downstairs allows for extra privacy if you want it. It is located on a quiet cul de sac and the view from the deck (especially at night) is amazing. It is extremely well stocked and clean and the owners are very responsive. The kids enjoyed your extensive movie collection. This rental house is now one of our favorites in the Arnold area. We can't wait to come back.

Had a great experience. The cabin was clean and well prepared for guests. Had more than enough room to relax over the weekend and enjoy some fresh mountain air. The cabin had a great upper deck with a great view. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend a stay here.

Great getaway for the wife and I, plus one happy English Setter.

I'm not one for flowery prose so I'll just ramble on all the things we liked about the cabin and surrounding country side. Nice large kitchen and family room. All the furnishings were top quality, no cheap stuff. Loved the internet radio to relax to while browsing the fantastic collection of books in the library. Comfortable beds and pillows. We ate in except for one lunch at Snowshoe Brewery. Great food, beer and service. Took a day trip to Bear Valley. The road was closed before Alpine Lake so didn't see it. Should have bought the snow park pass. On the way home stopped in Murphy's and toured Main Street. Numerous shops and wine tasting establishments. Very happy with the whole experience.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at La Vida Buena. The house had everything we needed and there was more than enough space for just two of us. The kitchen was perfect and the decks were amazing. I have no complaints! Arnold is a beautiful place and the weather was absolutely perfect. I can't wait to return to La Vida Beuna.

Beautiful!

Your place was great! We loved it. It felt secluded even though there were neighbors nearby. The view was lovely. It was clean and fully furnished and the information you provided regarding your place and nearby recreational activities was very helpful.

It was very enjoyable and fun to see a new beautiful area.

Thanks for the experience!
