This Fabulous Big Trees Beauty has everything you could want for a first class vacation, with sleeping for eight and the ability to increase occupancy to twelve. This cabin has three bedrooms, two baths and a loft area along with a full-service kitchen. The master suite with private access to the huge deck area is perfect for easy entertaining. Our vacation home is fully equipped and situated on one acre that backs up to the National Forest.
In the summer, enjoy the beautiful outdoors at the cabin barbecuing on the deck or sitting around the fire pit to roast marshmallows. Get out and go for a hike through Calaveras Big Trees State Park. You can fish, kayak, canoe, or even pan for gold on the Stanislaus River, or spend the day swimming and playing at Lake Alpine or Spicer.
Explore at California Caverns, climb, crawl and squirm through gooey, sticky mud, or take a tour at the Gold Cliff Mine. Explore 2 historic gold mine sites, or at the Moaning Caverns, you can rappel 165 feet by rope to the bottom of the main chamber.
If you enjoy the wine country, head down to Murphy’s, a 30 minute drive to visit some of the Sierra’s most outstanding wineries. Ironstone Winery is stunning and has great concert attractions. They also have excellent wine and in a vault the largest piece of gold ever found in California.
Murphy’s downtown has charming shops and wonderful restaurants in which to dine, in addition to many wonderful wineries and a local brewery.
Arnold is closer to the cabin to spend the day browsing shops and restaurants, including the Snowshoe Brewery, that has some wonderful micro brews. Sarafina's Italian has great food and pairings of local wines, but usually requires reservations. Also, the Giant Burger has great burgers, chocolate dipped ice cream cones, and more.
For those who like to golf, the closest course is Sequoia Woods and Forest Meadows in Murphy's.
In the winter, watch the family sled in front of the deck or build a big snow man. We are only a 20 mile ride to Bear Valley Ski Resort for some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the Sierras, without the crowds.
This cabin is beautiful with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors. It is fun to snuggle and relax in front of the fire place and watch the snow fall outside.
You will need to bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels. Everything else is provided.
In the winter, even if the roads are clear you need chains or a 4x4 to get down the driveway to access our cabin!!!!
We do have a dart board, but we do not provide the darts. Bring your own darts, but play at your own risk.
We are very close to the Camp Connell store, in case you may have forgotten to bring something you may need. During the Summer, they have live music on Saturday nights for free, and have beer, wine, and coffees available. In addition, we are near the Lube Room, which has good food and a full bar. Great place to hang out in the back during the Spring and Summer.
