Arnold cabin description

We have a beautiful, relaxing, updated house in the woods. Located in Arnold, CA a quick 2-3 hour drive from the Bay Area. The home is 15 minutes from Murphy's, the historic Gold Mining town, turned red wine mecca. 10 minutes up the mountain and you are in Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Amazing Giant Sequoias and outdoor playground/sledding for kids.

We are 30 minutes from world-class skiing at Bear Mountain Ski Area (both downhill and cross country).

The home is minutes away from private Pinebrook Lake. Enjoy free access to the large sandy beach, playground, diving platforms, inner tubes, real bathrooms, fishing dock and basketball court. During winter you can enjoy our on-site sledding hill perfect for the whole family. We provide the sleds.

The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac away on a large mostly flat (except for the front sledding hill) lot backing to 88+ acres of wooded open space.

House was remodeled in 2004 and in 2009 and has large updated gourmet kitchen with quartz counters, giant dining table, cozy stove and large wood beams! House comes with all the amenities for a great vacation, including: TV with cable including On-Demand Comcast, French Doors which open to the woods and wrap-around-deck to watch nature.

The home is baby-proofed and child-proofed and is stocked with all the necessities you need including books on the area, toys, games, puzzles and movies. The kitchen comes with all the spices, appliances, pots and pans you need to bake or make a feast.

We look forward to sharing our special getaway with you.

                          Owner info

                          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.
