Off the Beaten Path-our back yard the national forest. Inside /outside living – Outside on the wrap around decks perched above the forest your moment is shared with the wild life of the forest. Inside – soaring ceilings- an A frame- with windows that let the outside in, airy & open. The main level has open living areas the kitchen opens up to the dining area and the living room with a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has a door off to the deck and the dining area has a sliding door to the deck – the deck wraps around and has 2 additional eating areas with a gas bbq, the deck faces the forest and our home rests on its edge-which creates a unique location that is especially peaceful and serene. The main level has 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a queen size bed-windows that look out to the forest…there is an updated bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and a washer and dryer(no need to over pack- travel lightly…) The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans, microwave & utensils. Overlooking the livingroom and dining area is the loft – it has more play space, a little couch and chair with a half bath(1 queen size bed and 2 twins.) This is perfect for the kids to have their own space to play and create or read and relax- their time for separation and maybe yours too…but still an ear shot away. In the living room is a flat screen with a dvd player for movie time- 2 lazyboys, a rocking chair and comfortable couch. There is wall to wall carpet that makes is especially cozy and comfortable so those who don’t get a lazyboy can always grab a pillow and stretch out on the carpeting- child friendly(no hardwood floors fall on.) There are no granite counter tops or stainless steel appliances to scratch - just simple living that allows you to relax and not worry …It’s a place to retreat, create, play, rejuvenate and be…
The Blue Lake Springs Community Center is just 5 minutes – or less down the hill by car and shopping at Big Trees market is only 10 minutes or so, Big Trees national forest with some of the largest trees in the world is a 10-15 minute drive up hwy 4 and Bear Valley is 20-30 minutes up hwy 4 as well…it’s close to everything but feels so far away . We love climbing the hills behind the house into the national forest and taking long hikes on the cross country ski trails.
Let us unlock the doors so you can explore and find your own perfect adventure…

My wife and I stayed here with our kids (6 and 8) for a three day weekend. The cabin had everything we needed to relax, watch movies, prepare meals, etc. The kids loved the loft which was also great for us since it gave us quiet time to relax downstairs by the fireplace after a day at Bear Valley. The owners were very nice and easy to work with too. I'd definitely recommend it to others.

Perfect holiday getaway
Perfect holiday getaway
The house was very charming, had a spacious 2nd floor "loft" with a half bathroom, an old fashioned western/woodsy/country theme throughout, and was equiped with tons of comforts to make our stay so relaxing and enjoyable! The bedding, beds and many other items were of good high quality-somewhat of a rarity today. I especially loved unwinding in the jacuzzi. The wood burning stove was another plus. This home faces the forest so it's private and the views were amazing. We, including our dog, were lucky to get away from our busy lives to experience a fun, laid-back, peaceful family holiday!

We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin bordering Big Trees park. This is a very comfortable two-bedroom cabin with a loft. The two bedrooms downstairs have lodgepole pine beds and are very comfortable. There are three beds upstairs in the loft. The wood burning fireplace keeps the living room warm, and the easy chairs are very comfortable. The downstairs bathroom was recently remodeled and is very nice, and there is an upstairs bathroom in the loft. There is cable TV and DVD with a nice flatscreen TV. However, there is no internet, and unreliable or no cell coverage -- also no dishwasher. The owner's daughter handles the rentals and she seems very nice and pleasant to deal with. This is a great cabin for a ski trip for a small family. Overall, this is a very comfy cabin that looks like it has really been loved and well maintained by its owners.

We loved the location of the cabin. It was quiet, and great for walking the dog thru the neighborhood. We also liked hiking up the hill behind the house. We used the king bed and 2 of the loft beds and all were very comfortable and warm w/ the flannel sheets. Some of the pillows could be replaced since they were a little too flat to use. It was convenient to have 2 bathrooms, but there weren't enough hand towels upstairs for the bathroom. The living area was cozy and we loved the recliners. It was also nice that there were a few throw blankets down there to curl up with. The wood burning stove made everyone warm and toasty too. The dining table was the perfect size for eating and playing board games. The kitchen was small, but functional for our family of four. The electric griddle was a big help on our pancake morning. It would have been nice to have a dishwasher, but there really isn't room for one. Some new cookie sheets would be nice. The ones we found looked pretty worn out. Overall, we had a nice stay at the cabin, but the 11am checkout time was tough because we had to finish 2 loads of laundry between the sheets and towels and we didn't even use all the beds. We got up at 8am to get it all done and barely made it out by 11am. A later checkout would have been great. The owner's daughter was very responsive on email with any questions that I needed answered before we booked the rental. I would recommend the Snowshoe Brewing Company in Arnold for lunch or dinner.
