LUXURIOUS 3-LEVEL CHALET NESTLED IN THE PINES OF THE SIERRAS

Arnold Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-14)

We’re ready to share a little piece of paradise with you.

Be sure to check out the quick, 3-minute video tour of the cabin by clicking on the 'Video' tab. For many additional photos of the chalet in use and its history, click the link for 'more information' just below the rate card.

Relax and make our place yours for the length of time you wish to stay. And we’d like you to experience the holidays with your family and friends amongst the redwoods, attend weekend concerts at the local wineries, take a walk with your dogs up the hill right alongside, ski on the slopes of Bear Valley, visit some of the nearby caves, walk amongst the Sequoias at Big Trees State Park, and shop or wine taste in the quaint town of Murphys.

And when you return to this chalet in the woods, you can relax on the deck and look out into the forest, listen to the birds, have a glass of wine or hot cocoa, read a good book, or just sit in the quietude.

We want you to build lasting memories with your loved ones, including the four-legged ones, just as we have done over the years. Your chalet will sleep 12 people comfortably, enough for 2-3 families. Your group will certainly enjoy the deck in the warm weather for barbeques and for sitting around the gas fire pit during the cooler weather.

Cooking a meal in our well-equipped spacious hickory cabinet kitchen while listening to music from our Bose stereo system -- equipped with wireless music streaming from your iTunes library (or directly from your iPod or other device) -- will be another enjoyable activity for your large gathering. However, if you want to leave the cooking behind, there are several wonderful restaurants within a 2 mile radius. Snowshoe Brewery, Sarafina’s Italian Restaurant, Simply Delicious, and Susie’s Café are our favorites. You will not be disappointed.

We want your children to enjoy themselves as well, without the worries of accidents or mishaps. The lower level entertainment room serves this purpose well. It is equipped with board games, puzzles, xBox 360 with games, an ample DVD selection that can be watched on a large screen HDTV. This room also has 2 futons that convert into comfortable queen sized beds and there is floor space for sleeping bags -- a great choice for a kid slumber party!

And please, don’t be left behind due to unfinished work that needs to be done. You are equipped with wifi, printer, desk, and other office essentials. Your office in the Sierras is located in the loft area, so while you are at your desk, you can look out the window and enjoy the Redwood trees or listen to the birds. Nice!

We want your mountain getaway to be an experience that will stay with you for a long while, an experience that will bring you back again and again to revisit your favorite restaurant, to enjoy “your new piece of paradise” in a different season, to share with more of your loved ones.

Relax and enjoy.

My wife Beatrice and I finally married in 2001 at the age of 40 and 41, respectively, the first time for each of us. Beatrice is a school teacher and I'm a writer and entrepreneur.

She had a number of school teacher friends with vacation homes. most of them, in Arnold, CA. She set her sites on getting one and we finally did.

If you've looked at the supplemental photos at the added link provided then you will see that this cabin holds a special place in our lives and has a history. After a 1 1/2 year dispute with the seller, we finally acquired the property in early 2002 only to experience a fire only six weeks later. The rebuild took nearly two years.

We intend to do more international traveling in the years to come and so recently decided to begin sharing with others -- and their friends, families and pets -- the same wonderful experience we've had over the last 10 years.

Richard Nikoley purchased this chalet in 2002

We live in the south of the San Francisco Bay Area and unlike places like Tahoe or Napa, Arnold is accessible in under a 3 hour drive. This makes a 2-night weekend truly doable.

We discovered over time all that there is to see and do here. Mostly, we like to just enjoy the cabin itself as it's designed for that, the nice Big Trees market being only five minutes away and we love to relax with drinks and cook, and we love to invite friends and family.

But there is so much to do. We can go up the mountain 20 minutes and enjoy Bear Valley, the High Sierra, numerous lakes and streams or, we can go down the mountain 15 minutes and enjoy the historic gold town of Murphys with its many antique shops and wine tasting rooms.

We can go to Sonora, Angels Camp, Columbia, or find a hiking trail. We can go to the actual vineyards. We can see top artists and groups from the 60s to present, entertaining at the Ironstone Vineyards amphitheater 15 minutes away in Murphys.

In the beginning we thought we were buying a getaway vacation home and in the end, discovered we've bought into a wonderful package that has only gotten better and better over the years.

A Great Family Home

According to the grandchildren, this was the best place ever! There were 13 of us and we never felt the least bit cramped in this tri-level home. The only thing lacking was the snow! The owners were super accommodating and very easy to work with and we will definitely return for another stay. The deck surrounding the house was a good spot for the kids to play, the railing and two locked gates kept them contained and safe. One word of caution, each level has wooden floors and you hear every footstep in the quiet of the night - next time we claim the top floor bedroom.

We came with 4 momma's and our kiddos ages 4-12 and had a total blast. House is open, cozy, super accessible (flat driveway), fire road to walk on, great deck, tons of movies and fun games for the kids. Beds were plentiful and cozy and the kitchen was well stocked and laid out. Perfect. And Richard is amazingly responsive and professional and easy going all at the same time!

We met friends here, and our two families had a great time. 5 boys enjoyed the downstairs entertainment room and bedroom, while the adults enjoyed having some peace and quiet upstairs.

Excellent property, well maintained and very clean. No snow this year but we had fun hiking and biking instead with just a little cross country skiing.

This cabin is the best! 8 of us girls went up to Arnold for the weekend to celebrate my upcoming nuptials and we couldn't have chosen better accommodations! The cabin is large with plenty of sleeping space for your guests and a great room for people to hang out and visit. Richard is an excellent businessman; prompt with e-mail replies and detailed in providing us all the necessary information for a lovely weekend away. I highly recommend this awesome cabin in Arnold! It's a great place to get-away with friends and family.
