Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are a family of 5 who purchased this home so that our children would have access to the gorgeous woods, rivers and lakes around here and learn about the rich CA gold history. We have had so many wonderful family memories here in our warm and welcoming home and we look forward to sharing it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Arnold: Calaveras County offers a wonderful mix of gorgeous natural resources as well as a rich history. There is so much to do and see here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Relaxing on the wrap-around -deck listening to nature with a good book in hand. Visiting all the gorgeous mountain lakes and streams. The mountain biking is superb. We love bringing our kids to Pinebrook Lake which offers the nicest sand around. We also love how close the house is to the upper mtn lakes such as Alpine Lake.
