About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

My Father built the Sopinski Cabin over 30 years ago where my family spent summers, winters & weekends during my growing up years. This wonderful place provided for my brother and me a childhood filled with fun, activity, sports & memories that my family would like to now share with you.

Our cabin is located on a level lot at a 4000 ft elevation in Arnold, CA. We are within minutes from Angel's Camp, Sonora, Murphy's & Bear Valley Ski Resort. With a wrap-around deck surrounded by pines, our cabin provides an ideal spot to enjoy all the Sierra's have to offer without the hassle of too much snow, traffic or isolation. We are walking distance to many activities and only a minute's drive to many more. Our cabin is ideal for families, pets & adults who wish to go, go, go or just relax on the deck. Whatever your vacation's needs, you can find them here at the Sopinski Cabin.

Thank you for your interest in our home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Year Purchased: 1980

About: Hello, my name is Amy Waterman. My father, Ted Sopinski, built our cabin when my brother, Steve, and I were young. We have been spending time in Arnold since we were born and have made it a very important part of our lives. My mom & dad are retired and living in Sonoma County. My brother, Steve lives in Rocklin with his two sons & dog. My husband, Jeff, and I live in Santa Rosa with our daughter, two dogs, three cats, rat & fish. We visit our cabin whenever possible and hope you find it to be a magical place for your family too!

Why Arnold, CA, USA:
Before I was born, a salesman asked my father to come to Arnold in order to look at properties. He and his best friend from Lockheed drove up to Arnold with their wives and the salesman. After spending the weekend in Arnold, they knew this was a place they wanted to spend time. My father and his friend purchased a lot together & each bought thier own. They built a large cabin together for our two families where we spent every minute in Arnold we possibly could. After many years, our friends bought a business and moved up. We sold our joint cabin and my father then built the one we have today nearly 30 years ago. We still love Arnold & the surrounding area as much as the day we found it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most wonderful aspect to Arnold is its peacefulness. It truly feels like a vacation. When at our cabin, we feel as though we are worlds away from the busy, every day life of home. We love the diversity of the area and all it has to offer. The activities are perfect for our family...some of our favorites are hanging out at the pool in the summer time, visiting Columbia State Historic Park on a regular basis & sledding in the winter. Our most favorite activity, however, is relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine working on a puzzle or cross word with the most perfect weather & serenity.
