Welcome to Whimsy in the Mountains! Enjoy this luxury mountain home located adjacent to the 17th green and 18th tee of the award winning Sequoia Woods Country Club Golf Course. The chalet-style cabin on the golf course features four bedrooms plus loft above, an open concept kitchen and great room, and a lower level media room.


This mountain Chalet cabin has been completely remodeled and expanded by a master craftsman. It features flowing spaces, illuminated by custom lighting design, custom cabinetry, beautiful furnishings and carefully chosen art, all creating an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment. An open kitchen, dining, and great room area with high ceilings enhances the spacious and inviting atmosphere.

There are three full bathrooms with double sinks to serve guests, adding to the comfort and convenience. With four bedrooms and a large loft, the Chalet can easily sleep up to 12. The kitchen is beautifully designed, featuring custom cherry cabinets, composite granite counters, modern stainless steel appliances, two sinks, and a smart layout for the convenience of the cook and family members.

Step outside and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings in any season. The large deck is a retreat on its own, complete with a luxury outdoor dining set and stainless steel chef's gas Bar-B-Que, topped off with an amazing view up to the 17th Green and down to the 18th Tee. The lower level boasts a media room with a comfortable sofa/loveseat combination and inviting oversized arm chairs.

Residence at Whimsy affords you access to both the Snowflake Lodge and the Country Club, so there’s no shortage of fun activities and recreational amenities to enjoy. Bring your family, a group, or come on your own to enjoy all that Whimsy has to offer. Make wonderful memories with friends and family, and simply enjoy a relaxing retreat in Blue Lake Springs. 


Please note that you'll want to bring your slippers when you stay, as this is a no shoe cabin. However, Sheets, Towels, Beach Towels and Kitchen amenities are provided.

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 Gold Country / High Sierra

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.

Perfect Blue Lake Springs House

  • 5 of 5

My family plus grandma and grandpa stayed here for a total of 3 nights and it was wonderful. The house had all of the amenities we needed and the kids loved having their own TV room downstairs. Very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked. We will definitely stay here again!

Our Happy Place.............

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Whimsy was fantastic! We feel like this is our home away from home as soon as we arrive. The house is gorgeous and very well-maintained. We lack for nothing! While we spend a good deal of our time enjoying the beautiful view from the deck, while eating food we prepared in the gorgeous kitchen, the kids can't decide if the large loft or the awesome media room downstairs is their favorite. They have so much room to play! We were able to swim all day at Blue Lake, explore the area on walks/runs every morning, and enjoy the pool at Country Club. Who could ask for more? We even had the pleasure of meeting the owner in person. What a lovely, gracious woman! Her thoughtfulness is apparent throughout Whimsy. We can't wait until next time......Thank you!

Wonderful "Cabin"

  • 5 of 5

This well accomodated house in Arnold, CA. was clean, beautifully decorated, and large enough to comfortably sleep 14+. Local recreation included swimming, hiking in scenic Big Trees, golf, etc.

I highly recommend it.
