Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4), outdoor spa and large deck
One of a kind escape bungalow in secluded Blue Lake Springs, just on the outskirts of Arnold, Ca. Amazing, one of a kind cottage with beautiful views and ambiance! Outdoor spa and large wrap around deck with breakfast nook make for an amazing relaxing vacation spot!
Located on a secluded drive with a view of Fly In lake, you’ll feel like you are miles away from anyone or anything. Our cabin includes some great modern amenities, while still giving you the feeling that you’re far away from the day to day hustle and bustle of the city.
Decorated in the classic style of the rustic American cabin, our getaway is decorated with knotty pine throughout. The spacious wraparound deck overlooks the lake. The outdoor spa and Brazilian Teak breakfast table (available during the spring & summer) are perfect for enjoying the solitude of the mountains. Listen to the sounds of the ducks and birds while enjoying your favorite beverage as the sun sets over the Sugar Spruce laden hills.
Fly In Lake is directly across the street from the cottage. The gently sloped beach makes for a perfect swimming hole for the kids. During the evenings enjoy a view of the stars while unwinding in the heated spa. Take in the romantic summer sunsets on the deck and enjoy an outdoor meal on the beautiful teakwood dinner table.
Small and cozy, the two bedroom/1 bathroom (shower only) cabin sleeps a family of four comfortably. The kids room has a bunk bed with 2 full size beds. The master bedroom has a Queen bed with a window overlooking the forest and lake.
The kitchen is small but fully equipped, and includes a small stove, fridge, microwave, butcher block and coffee maker.
For those who absolutely must maintain some sense of what’s going on in the real world, the cabin is equipped with wireless internet access, and a wireless Bluetooth Boombox. There is also a flatscreen TV with access to Netflix and Apple TV, as well as basic cable.

About Scott C. Munos
I'm a white collar professional , father of two who loves to travel both for work and pleasure. I use VRBO extensively, as both a traveler and a host. I pride myself on taking very good care of my property, and also ensuring that I am available to my guests anytime they need me. I survey all of my guests, in an effort to not only ensure that I understand what they enjoyed most about their visit, but also how I can improve their experience at the cottage.
Scott C. Munos purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Scott C. Munos chose Arnold
I purchased the Lakeside Cottage in 2006. Over the years, I've tried to give the place the feel of a secluded, tahoe style lodge. I have several guests who return every year, from as far away as Spain. I try to continually improve the Cottage so as to ensure a great experience for my guests. There is no other property in the area that can match the view, ambiance and secluded nature of the Lakeside Cottage.
What makes this Cabin unique
The wraparound Trex deck, beautiful breakfast nook and spa overlook Fly In Lake. There is no other location in this area that provides the solitude, views and ambiance that can be enjoyed at the Lakeside Cottage. The Outdoor deck furniture provides for a great view of the surrounding scenery and gorgeous sunsets!

Quaint Cabin in Arnold
The cabin was a perfect way to spend New Years. We had some great peaceful evenings enjoying the tranquility of Arnold in the hot tub out on the deck. The fireplace ensured that we had the full "cabin in the woods" experience. I enjoyed chopping wood from the stocked shed to keep our fire going. Even though the cabin was a bit smaller than we originally thought, it's size made it easy to keep the place nice and warm. We used the bluetooth speaker extensively, it was a really nice touch. Cooking was a little tricky as some of the text on the stove knobs were illegible from use. Other than that, it was a great place to spend a few days away from the city.
Darling rustic cabin experience
What a darling cabin in the woods. Every need has been thought of by the owners and the peace and quiet is wonderful. Beautiful family get away! Only catch for late fall, the lake is empty. Didn’t take away from our fun though.
Peace & Happiness
An amazing cabin in the woods. Clean & comfortable! We felt like we were the only ones out here as many of the other cabins around us were empty! Hot tub was awesome! Had a little issues with it but text Scott he got right back to us and it was up and running in about an hour. Also had 3 cute visitors at about 2:30 am - found 2 little bears trying to get into the hot tub and another just rolling around on the deck! Thanks for a cute little show! If you need to escape city life and enjoy fresh air & peace of mind - this is the place! We will be booking again will not be able to stay away from this little gem! Thank you!
We had a great time, despite the heat.
The cabin was just as described, and suited us well. The heat was unusual, so our daughters ended up sleeping in the living room. During the day, we had plenty of fun places to go and beat the heat. And the deck was lovely in the mornings and evenings, which was what sold us on this cabin in the first place. The only real issue we had was the driveway. We almost thought we weren't going to be able to get over the hump in our front-wheel drive sedan. The only way we finally did it was to pull into the parking spot of the neighboring cabin and then back up the hill. If someone had been parked there, we would have been out of luck. So even in the summertime, an all-wheel drive SUV is your best bet.
Location was wonderful and we had a lot of fun. Many hikes, wine tasting in Murphys and lots of wildlife including a river otter in the lake!
Great getaway for family
We really enjoyed our stay over memorial day
Access to swim and float in Flyin lake a nice bonus
Cabin was very clean inside
Wine tasting in nearby Murphy's. Bear Valley ski resort is about 30-40 minutes east of the cabin. Excellent hiking throughout the area, including Calaveras State Park. Kayaking, snow skiing and cross country skiing nearby. This property is not wheelchair accessible.
