Due to the steep stairs leading up to the loft and the 1ft gap between the floor and first railing separating the loft from the main space, we do not recommend young children stay in the loft. We have 2 very young children who love the downstairs, though :)....moreless
BYO sheets and towels, blankets and pillows are provided....moreless
The driveway is short and not steep (a real bonus in the snow!) Room for 1 car in the carport, one behind it in the driveway, and one more off to the side in the gravel (during non-snow season)....moreless

About the owner: I grew up going to my Aunt's cabin in Arnold and it has always been a very special place to me. It feels like a real mountain town with real families who live there and are always open and kind. Kayaks, snowboarding, hammock swinging, and hiking are memories I'll always have with my family and I am so excited to build them with our own children now.
Why the Owner Chose Arnold: We knew this was home the minute we walked in. There is something magical about it. It has an open feeling with 2 story tall windows that let in light, tree views, and a connection to the mountains. Sunrise coffee on the deck will slow you down just enough to truly breathe in the crisp pine air.
