Property type cabin
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

Arnold, California

Make the most of your visit to Bear Valley by booking this charming vacation rental home nestled in a rejuvenating pine forest surrounded by natural beauty but with all the comforts of home so you can relax and enjoy yourself.


This spacious A-frame chalet sits beneath towering pine trees and is destined to give you a sense of reprieve from daily life. Offering 1250 square feet of comfortable living space with 2 bedrooms and additional sleeping space in the loft, this home has enough room to comfortably sleep 9 guests making it the perfect accomodation for a large family or group of friends traveling together. The spacious, well-lit living room with a wood burning fireplace is an ideal place to recline after a day of outdoor adventure.

The chalet's rustic decor may give a quaint mountain-home feel, but the WIFI, high-definition flat-screen television, and cable allows for staying in touch with the modern world and staying indoors for movie nights with the family. The chalet's kitchen is fully stocked and has modern track lighting and a bar with stools.


Though just walking out the front door into the expansive pine forest may provide the shot of nature you're looking for, this chalet is located 200 yards from the Blue Lake Springs Country Club Area that offers an opportunity for mingling with other vacationers in the area. The fee for the use of the recreation center is $8 per person per day. If you plan on visiting in the winter, you will only be thirty minutes from the world-renowned Bear Valley Ski Resort!

Dirty kitchen counters, dirty dishes in the cupboard, dirty bath mat and dirty mattress pad.

  • 1 of 5

Poorly maintained property. Outside needs weeding and walkways improved. General cleanup needed. Had to launder the soiled mattress pad before making the bed. Locks on all the closets. No place to hang up clothes.

More than we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Mom/daughter trip and we even added another day at the end because we didn't want to leave. It was perfect. It had everything promised and we had an awesome time. We will be back again soon.

Cozy cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

This was a very cozy and decently appointed cabin. The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen were both decent, the porch was gorgeous and there was a nice selection of board games.

The temperature control in the house was very difficult with the third bedroom being open and the two downstairs bedrooms being very small -- they got too hot and the loft got too cold overnight.

The other complaint that we had was that there was an abundance of passive aggressive/aggressive signage about the property. I've stayed in many VRBO/AirBnBs and never seen anything quite like it -- 2-3 laminated signs per room. None with "please" or "thank you" on them. A house book rather than individual signage and some politeness would have made the cabin feel more welcoming.

cabin is rustic and clean but misreprented

  • 1 of 5

The cabin is misrepresented on the website. it is not surrounded be beautiful pines and cleared areas. It is surrounded by felled trees and debris and completely exposed to the sun making it unbearable in the afternoons through the evening. While an outdoor lovely seating area is shown in pictures, it does not exist and the furniture is covered with debris and trees that have been felled and surrounded by weeds. Not accessible. The walkway to the cabin has exposed rebar supports for log steps gone long ago, the dishwasher does not work and the screen door is in disrepair. We left after two nights because we could not enjoy a cabin experience in the afternoons or evenings. It appears to have been lovely once upon a time, but not today

Good cabin feel.

  • 4 of 5

Kids had fun playing outside, however they found a bunch of empty beer bottles and broken glass in a bucket while playing. Kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. Bathtub should have non slip attachments as one of us did slip in the tub.

We enjoyed our stay here.

Very comfy!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is super cozy. Everything you could ask for in a ski cabin. There were just four of us but could have fit twice that easily. Loft area for the kids is great.
