General overview

Family friendly vacation home in a great location and fun get-away in all seasons! Tire swing, lots of movies, games, books and Foosball. Walk to pond/swimming pool/ tennis/ pickleball and basketball courts. Upgraded kitchen with granite counters. New A/C, a stove/oven, and remodeled both bathrooms during the pandemic. Arnold is wonderful! Our cabin backs up to Calavaras Big Trees State Park ( http://parks.ca.gov/?page_id=551 ) and is fabulous for hiking and exploring. Historic town of Murphys is about 20 minutes downhill https://visitmurphys.com/ and totally worth your time to visit! We also have a game room with a pool table, darts, tv and music. It is not kid friendly, but fun for us big kids! (alcohol on the shelf, sharp darts, our private ski equipment is stored, and the room is only suitable for 20 yrs+). In Arnold, there are great restaurants, wineries and activities in town. We also have a distillary winning awards all around the country! https://www.hinterhausdistilling.com/ There are places to rent kayaks, bikes, e-bikes, stand up paddle boards, etc. The pool is an easy 5 min walk, and the HOA has a snack shack, full restaurant, tennis, pickle ball, basketball, horse shoes, a swimming pond, etc. It's a lot of fun! The deck is new so my photos do not show patio furniture, but it's all put back together now. The cabin is about 30 minutes from Lake Alpine which is over the top beautiful! There are also many other lakes, ponds, rivers (Stanislaus is not far), fishing, etc. You'd also like The Luberoom - website does not have great photos but they have summer concerts, corn hole, and it's a fun place with good food. https://www.theluberoom.com/ The cabin is located in Calavaras County, close to Murphys https://www.gocalaveras.com/itinerary/high-sierra/arnold/

The space

Cabin is at 4,300 foot elevation in the most desired Blue Lake Springs neighborhood in the town of Arnold, about a 2.5-3 hrs from San Francisco or San Jose. The cabin is across the street from the pool/pond/lodge. Minutes to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. 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. Winter is great, but my favorite time of year is Spring, Summer and Fall with hiking and swimming!

Guest access

Stairs up to the main level. Great room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms (the "Bear Room" and the "Reindeer Room"). Upstairs loft has 2 double beds and a twin and a full bathroom. The washer and dryer are located downstairs from the main level.

Notes

* There is a fee to use the lodge facilities. * We have a game room that is typically ONLY for our use because it is not child safe. If there are no kids, or you feel comfortable, we can open the gameroom to you, but it's not child safe (alcohol, darts, poker table leaned against the wall, and access under the house to tools, supplies, etc.).

Neighbourhood

The neighborhood is filled with trees, cabins and wildlife and is across from the Snowflake Lodge, pool, pond, tennis courts, basketball courts and snack shack. 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 distillary, a well stocked grocery store and sporting stores.

Getting to my home

The cabin is about a 3 hour drive from our main home in the Bay Area. It is also about 3 hours from the San Francisco airport. The house is a few minutes from Hwy 4.

Nearest airport

San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland or Sacramento airports are each about 2-3 hours away.

Getting around

You will need a car. In the winter (Dec - March) you'll want 4-wheel drive and/or chains if there is any snow in the forecast.

Roxanne

I bought our vacation home in the Sierra Nevada mountains, California, in 2004 (#1439). We have enjoyed it in every season. We live in the Bay Area (about 3 hours away, #3167) 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. We also have a home near wineries in Morgan Hill CA (#2570; allows day trips to Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Capitola, Aptos, Santa Cruz, San Francisco). Our primary house #3167 is in Campbell, near San Jose State University, Stanford, UC Santa Cruz and an easy drive to the coast (30 min) and near the main sites in the San Francisco Bay Area.
