About Roxanne and Doug
We are a family of four from the south bay who share our time at the Dancing Bear with friends and family as often as possible.
Roxanne and Doug purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Roxanne and Doug chose Arnold
We chose Arnold because of Arnold's convenient proximity to the Bay Area (3 hour drive) and the many fun activities in the area. Arnold is a wonderful Sierra playground that is much easier to access than Tahoe. Additionally, the Arnold area has golf, wineries, hiking, skiing and a small town feel where passerbys wave and treat you like an old friend when you walk into the hardware store or bakery. The Blue Lake Springs recreation area seems frozen in time (in a good way). It reminds me of a scene from a by-gone era of a simpler time where people hunted frogs at the pond and played bingo poolside.

We absolutely loved it! Very clean and Spacious!
I absolutely loved it the cabin was very clean and spacious! The kitchen had everything I needed for cooking and baking! The wrap around porch was beautiful! I could sit at the dining room table and watch the kids play in the snow right outside the porch ! There was lots of board games and a foosball table. There was something for everyone to do at all times . There was cable and Internet and my kids did not pick up their devices at all! And the Landlord Rocxanne was available before and during our stay. She was very nice and helpful. She answered All my calls and messages right away ! We have stayed in several cabins and this one by far is Our favorite! And again Rocxanne was so accommodating to us! It made our trip so much better! The Dancing bear is the perfect place to stay! We will definitely be returning to this beautiful home!
Rosemary and her family were terrific guests and we were happy they enjoyed such a fun wonderful stay with lots of snow to enjoy. Rosemary was friendly and took good care of the Dancing Bear Cabin. Since my kids are now grown and in their early 20's, I really enjoy hearing about youngsters enjoying the great outdoors at Blue Lake Springs and playing in and around the cabin. Thank you Rosemary! You and your family are welcome back any time!
Very comfortable cabin in a great location
We loved the cabin very roomy and well equipped. My parents bought a cabin just around the corner in 1974 that they kept of over 20 years. Staying in Blue Lake Springs brought back many memories for me and created new ones for our grandchldren.
Fantastic family get away!
Our family just got back from a wonderful 5 night summer stay at the cabin. The cabin is less than a 5 min walk to the Blue Lake springs rec center which has great amenities including a huge swimming pool and small lake/pond area that even includes a small beach. The cabin is also only a short drive from Calevaras Big Trees state park as well as a number of caverns that have fun tours and activities. We went to Moaning Cavern which has a great guided tour and also has an area for kids to pan for minerals. We loved staying at the cabin and look forward to coming back again.
great family vacation!
Our family had a wonderful time playing in the snow and taking the kids out on the slopes. The cabin was wonderful, lots of space for everyone. The fireplace was great and kept us cozy. There were sleds for the kids. The kitchen supplies were a little dated, but we did not cook much so it was ok for us. The location was great, close to town and to the snow. The owner was exceptionally friendly, helpful and responsive. She helped us out when our travel plans changed last minute. We can't wait till next winter so we can rent this cabin again!!
Excellent Blue Lake Springs Rental!
The Dancing Bear is a wonderful home in a fantastic location! Everything that was written about the property was consistent with what we we experienced. The rental price was perfect for the home. The directions were precise and our expectations were met. The home, right off highway 4 and across the street from the amazing Blue Lake Springs pool and athletic complex. The home was very clean and everything worked exceptionally well. I would recommend the property to other renters, family and friends. Thank you for making a wonderful weekend at the Dancing Bear.
I'm happy to hear that you & your family enjoyed your stay. You are always welcome back to the Dancing Bear!
Fantastic cabin for a family vacation!
We had a wonderful time staying at this cabin! It is in the prefect location, just across the street from all the amenities at the Blue Lake Springs rec center. Although the pool was closed for the season during our visit, our 2yr old daughter was still able to play on the little playground and enjoy the pond. The cabin itself is very spacious with a great layout! The owners gave us so many great recommendations for places to eat, must-see areas, etc., and just made us feel very welcome. We definitely would stay at this cabin again and would highly recommend it for families looking for a great place to stay in Arnold!
