Arnold cabin description

One of a kind escape bungalow in secluded Blue Lake Springs, just on the outskirts of Arnold, Ca. Amazing, one of a kind cottage with beautiful views and ambiance! Outdoor spa and large wrap around deck with breakfast nook make for an amazing relaxing vacation spot!

Located on a secluded drive with a view of Fly In lake, you’ll feel like you are miles away from anyone or anything. Our cabin includes some great modern amenities, while still giving you the feeling that you’re far away from the day to day hustle and bustle of the city.

Decorated in the classic style of the rustic American cabin, our getaway is decorated with knotty pine throughout. The spacious wraparound deck overlooks the lake. The outdoor spa and Brazilian Teak breakfast table (available during the spring & summer) are perfect for enjoying the solitude of the mountains. Listen to the sounds of the ducks and birds while enjoying your favorite beverage as the sun sets over the Sugar Spruce laden hills.

Fly In Lake is directly across the street from the cottage. The gently sloped beach makes for a perfect swimming hole for the kids. During the evenings enjoy a view of the stars while unwinding in the heated spa. Take in the romantic summer sunsets on the deck and enjoy an outdoor meal on the beautiful teakwood dinner table.

Small and cozy, the two bedroom/1 bathroom cabin sleeps a family of four comfortably. The kids room has a bunk bed and TV with an assortment of kids movies. The master bedroom has a California king size bed with a window overlooking the forest and lake.

The kitchen is small but fully equipped, and includes a small stove, fridge, microwave, butcher block and coffee maker.

For those who absolutely must maintain some sense of what’s going on in the real world, the cabin is equipped with wireless internet access, and a wireless Bluetooth Boombox. There is also a flatscreen TV with basic cable access and a selection of 30 or so movies.
