Arnold house description

We have lots of room for family and friends to gather and create lasting memories. Each bedroom can fit a family. The master bedroom w/bath has a CAL King Bed and a futon. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and 2 twins (bunk). The third BR has 3 twins and a full size bed (2 bunks). Our den has a full size futon and our living room has 1 queen size fold out couch.

The kitchen is modern, fully stocked with gadgets to match all your cooking needs, including a slow-cooker, toaster oven, and microwave. In the summer, enjoy the deck and BBQ.

For in-home entertainment, we have a Foosball game, ping pong table, 3 new flat screen TV's, 2 DVD players, WIFI, Wii system and lots of board games. Don't want to cook? Venture out to our local restaurants, Sarafina's Italian Kitchen, Snowshoe Brewery, Simply Delicious and Susie's Cafe.

If you like tasting wines, shopping and outdoor adventures like exploring caves, ziplining, hiking, fishing and biking the Arnold area has it all. In the winter, have fun skiing or sledding in Bear Valley or nearby sledding hills. In the spring, fall and summer go hiking in the Big Trees National Park to enjoy the magistry of the Giant Sequoia Trees. We are located right near the Stanislaus National Forest, Alpine Lake and the Sierras for all kinds of mountain fun. You can use the facilities at Blue Lake Springs (guest fees apply) to enjoy tennis, lake swimming and fishing and activities for the children.

Bring your friends, families and your dog. Make traditions and memories. We would love to share our home with you.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Mike and Mary Jane Kiefer live in Walnut Creek CA. Mike is a scientist and Mary Jane is a Public Health Nutritionist. We have 2 children--married with children. When we found out we were having a 3rd grandson, we wanted to have a cabin in the mountains for them to enjoy and explore the great outdoors.

          Why the Owner Chose Arnold:
          We enjoyed Blue Lake Springs and the Arnold area when our kids were growing up--and want the memories and traditions to continue.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We love this property because it is easy, clean, modern and fun. We drive up on a Friday nite, drive into the 2 car garage and feel at home in the mountains with all the comforts of home.
