Upstairs has a second bathroom with shower, and a master bedroom with king bed and full futon. Entertainment options include: PlayStation II, 2 TVs /DVD, movie library, iPod dock, and plenty of table games. There is also a separate bonus 'cave room' downstairs with foosball and comfy seating.

Relax under the trees or stars on the brand new wrap-around deck right off the main floor complete with gas BBQ grill.

There is forced air heating, washer, dryer and dishwasher.

Arnold is an outdoor lovers paradise! Nestled between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, Arnold is truly the heart of the Sierra.

Big Trees State Park is 3 miles up Hwy 4 and Bear Valley Ski Resort is nearby. Of course there are plenty of snow play hills and snowshoe areas for winter fun and lots of trails to hike or mountain bike.

Play, raft or fish in the Stanislaus River. Go caving at Moaning or Mercer Caverns. Enjoy hiking, kayaking and boating on Lake Alpine or Spicier reservoir. Enjoy the lovely little town of Arnold fro dining or shopping. Historic Murphy's is 15 minutes away with more than eighteen wineries that make up the Calaveras County wine region and produce a variety of award winning wines, there's great shopping, amazing restaurants, art galleries and so much more.

The neighborhood of Blue Lake Springs is a gem in itself featuring: two lakes,swimming pool, playground, tennis courts, bocce and basket ball, playground and supervised kid activities and many green areas. There is also an amphitheater with weekend family movies and campfire area among other features to keep you entertained during the summer.

Our cabin is truly a peaceful retreat and is blessedly unencumbered by the stresses of fast paced city life--in other words--it is free of wi-fi, cable or land lines! :-)
This is not the place to work! Unplug and enjoy the Redwoods and wildlife or listen to the birds. We want you to relax and enjoy this mountain getaway and experience a a little slice of paradise, alone or with the people you love!
