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.

                                                                    All expectations met, and then some.

                                                                    Sue K.

                                                                    The cabin was better than the pictures represented. The home had everything we needed . The house was by far the cleanest VRBO we have ever stayed in. It’s golf course location provided for endless walks and pine cone searching. The gas fireplace was a hit! We will be back!!

                                                                    Love it

The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of room for all of us (a group of 10) to hang out comfortably. We would love to return to this gem of a home one day!

                                                                    Met all our expectations.
