About Serena Chapman

We're a San Francisco Bay Area family with two kids heading off to college.

Serena Chapman purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Serena Chapman chose Arnold

We love the Sierras and have been vacationing here, Summers and Winters, for more than twenty years. It provides so many outdoor fun activities including hiking, skiing, biking,swimming, and many others. There's also fun small town boutique shopping, antiquing, wine tasting, and restaurants. Whimsy is located within walking distance to the Sequoia Woods Country Club and a short drive or bike ride to Snow Flake Lodge and the lakes.

What makes this chalet unique

We really enjoy the fresh mountain air, the tall trees, and the view down the golf course. When our kids were younger, we would go skiing at Bear Valley every other weekend.

All expectations met, and then some.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was better than the pictures represented. The home had everything we needed . The house was by far the cleanest VRBO we have ever stayed in. It’s golf course location provided for endless walks and pine cone searching. The gas fireplace was a hit! We will be back!!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with Whimsy -- the pictures do not do it justice! The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of room for all of us (a group of 10) to hang out comfortably. We would love to return to this gem of a home one day!

Our family of ten has stayed here three summers in a row. The place can't be beat for its amenities and cleanliness. Hope to return next summer.

Luxurious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and, our 3 adult children with their significant others stayed very comfortably at Whimsey. We were all impressed with the attention to detail, cleanliness, and high quality linens. We had plenty of room to enjoy each other's company and be apart if we desired. The kitchen was equipped with most utensils and pans that we needed. We enjoyed the view of the golf course and the peacefulness of sitting on the deck. We would highly recommend staying at this home in Arnold!
