"A very large group of friends celebrated the New Year at The Iron Mountain House (AKA Mannequin House to Kirkwood Locals!). We are avid skiers, so the courtesy shuttle was a huge plus. The house is just massive so all 12 of us could stay comfortable without ever feeling crowded- and we could all fit at the dining table! The kitchen is well-suited to cooking for large groups, and the living room comfortable fit all of us, plus our snuggly pups. The meadow is right outside the back entrance, which was convenient for walking the dogs after a long say of skiing. Leo and Nina are just the sweetest, and even checked in when they heard we were having some unseasonable cold weather to ensure we were warm enough. We can't wait to come back!"

Wonderful family-friendly cabin, conveniently located and well-appointed!
"Thank you for a wonderful stay in your pleasant Arnold home! We truly enjoyed the cabin even more each day that we were there -- and every night my daughters would ask if we had another night there in Arnold! I was so sad to say "no" on our last night! But, I'm confident that we'll be back to the area soon!
There's just so much to do there in the Blue Lake Springs and Arnold area. Whether you like to ski at Bear Valley, hike and picnic in Big Trees State Park, or see the countryside by car, you'll find it all here in this nice part of beautiful California. One main benefit of staying in Arnold, at Dancing Bear cabin, is that you're just a few minutes drive from all of these wonderful locations. We truly enjoyed our hike in the pines which were just 5 minutes up the road, and a good day trip to Columbia which was just 30 minutes away. You cannot beat the central location of this residence!
Along with a fantastic location, Dancing Bear cabin is perfect in its layout! We loved the open floor-plan and large dining room table where the whole family could enjoy dinner or play board games. The cabin is furnished with cozy decor, plenty of seating for a large crowd, and is stocked with the perfect kitchen supplies! There were excellent books for kids and adults and we had great fun with the legos, games and puzzles stored there at the cabin. We were very pleased with how well-maintained this home truly was. Our family of four fit nicely on the main floor of this cabin, however, there is a large loft that can comfortably accommodate many more guests.
The cabin was easy to find and we enjoyed the location within the Blue Lake Springs neighborhood. Our kids loved the nearby playground, and we would love to return in the summer to swim in the neighborhood swimming pool.
Many thanks to the owners of Dancing Bear who have set-up a great home for a wonderful visit to the Gold Country. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!"

"I read all of the reviews after I booked the cabin and was very pleased. There is nothing like getting away from it all. We had four adults (two seniors) and my husband and I took the porch. The evenings were cool and comfortable. I would wake up in the middle of the night and I was surrounded by stars. I want to move in... Vincent and Maya were there when we arrived. Provided a bowl full of oranges for juice and a tremendous short cut to Kings Canyon. This is a place I will definitely visit again."
