General overview

Family friendly vacation home is in a great location and is a fun get-away in all seasons. This is a nice family vacation home that we share with renters on dates when we are not using it. The house has a fun tire swing, lots of movies, games, books and Foosball. In 2009, we upgraded the kitchen with granite kitchen counters, new sink, faucet, refrigerator, floors, and dishwasher. No A/C, but cools off nicely in the early evening with a mountain breeze.

The space

The Cabin is at 4,300 foot elevation in the Blue Lake Springs neighborhood in the town of Arnold, about a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from San Francisco or San Jose. The cabin is across the street from the pool/pond at Snow Flake Lodge. Bear Valley Ski Resort is about 30 minutes away depending on conditions. This cabin is on one of the first roads plowed and has easy Hwy 4 access to Bear Ski Resort. The house is about 2 hours from the valley floor in Yosemite.

Guest access

Stairs up to the main level which has a great room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms (the "Bear Room" and the "Reindeer Room"). The loft upstairs has 2 beds and a bathroom. The washer and dryer are located downstairs.

There are lots of hikes nearby and the back of the house backs up to Calaveras Big Trees State Park in California. In town there are several cute coffee shops, nice restaurants, a well stocked grocery store and a few sporting stores.

Member description
We are Roxanne and Doug and we bought our vacation home in the Sierra Nevada mountains, California, in 2004. We have enjoyed it in every season. We live in the Bay Area (about 3 hours away) and enjoy the pool, lakes, wineries, tennis courts, restaurants, hiking, kayaking, lakes, skiing at Bear Valley and BBQ'ing and eating on the deck at the cabin. We both attended Cal Poly in SLO and love the Central Coast.
