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. It has central air and heat.
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. It now has central heat/airconditioning.
