Why the Owner Chose Arnold: We are a family of four that recently began visiting Arnold. We have truly fallen in love with the area and were blessed to be able to buy this cabin this year. The private lake and the amazing hiking trails that are practically in our back yard have been an unexpected joy to our family. Don't be surprised if you see a family of deer or a wild turkey wondering through the property. We've seen both in just the last month! This cabin has already been a blessing to our family and we are excited to be able to share it with others.
