                  About: We enjoy staying in our cabin with our 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter. Our cabin is child friendly, very cozy and relaxing.

                  Why Arnold:
                  Blue Lake Springs is like Tahoe was 30+ years ago. It's only a 3 hour drive from the Bay Area but it seems like it's a world away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Situated on a quiet street in the highly desirable Blue Lake Springs area, you can expect summertime fun at Snowflake Lodge recreation facilities from Memorial Day through Labor Day (guest fees apply). The recreation facilities include the Snowflake Lodge Restaurant, a large heated pool and kiddie pool, snack bar, playground two private lakes as well as tennis, volleyball, Ping-Pong, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, Frisbee golf and outdoor movies on summer evenings.
