Property 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 the master bedroom has a Queen bed with a window overlooking the forest and lake.

Update (as of August 2, 2015) - In lieu of the ongoing drought, Fly In Lake has been closed for the remainder of the summer, due to low water. It is swim at your own risk. No lifeguards available. Blue Lake Springs has made the Snow Flake Lodge available to Fly-In Lake guests. (Snow Flake Lodge is less than a mile from the Cottage) Guests can enjoy the Snow Flake amenities (pool, lake, tennis courts, etc) for an additional $8 per person or $25 per family. Snowflake Lodge is located at 335 Blue Lake Springs Dr, Arnold, CA 95223


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 access to Netflix and Apple TV, as well as basic cable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I'm a white collar professional , father of two who loves to travel both for work and pleasure. I use VRBO extensively, as both a traveler and a host. I pride myself on taking very good care of my property, and also ensuring that I am available to my guests anytime they need me. I survey all of my guests, in an effort to not only ensure that I understand what they enjoyed most about their visit, but also how I can improve their experience at the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Arnold:
I purchased the Lakeside Cottage in 2006. Over the years, I've tried to give the place the feel of a secluded, tahoe style lodge. I have several guests who return every year, from as far away as Spain. I try to continually improve the Cottage so as to ensure a great experience for my guests. There is no other property in the area that can match the view, ambiance and secluded nature of the Lakeside Cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The wraparound Trex deck, beautiful breakfast nook and spa overlook Fly In Lake. There is no other location in this area that provides the solitude, views and ambiance that can be enjoyed at the Lakeside Cottage. The Outdoor deck furniture provides for a great view of the surrounding scenery and gorgeous sunsets!
