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 Gold Country & High Sierra

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.

Beautiful home and area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend in this lovely home. Our boys loved collecting the errant golf balls in the evening, and we enjoyed dinners on the deck every night. Thank you!

Worth renting this property.

  • 5 of 5

Whimsy Luxury Cabin was fantastic! Very Clean, great view of golf course from the back patio. Fireplace was a real plus during our time there. Everything was as advertised, clean and in working order. We worked within the rules established for no shoes inside, and with everyone bringing slippers, it was an easy exchange at the front door. Don't expect cell phone service, but that is true for anywhere in the Arnold/Big Trees area. If the weather was better and time permitting, the resort facilities looked great. Would definitely rent again.

Absolutey Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family took a 3-day trip to Arnold from Jan 2-4 and stayed here in this wonderful cabin. I can't say enough great things about the property, meticulously taken care of, luxury accommodations and in a beautiful setting. Unbelievably, the owner even called us to ensure that we were happy with the cabin and accommodations. All of the appliances are high-end, the Wifi was faster than what I have a home and the property feels like it has been recently renovated. We are already planning our next trip to this property and will be back soon~

Christmas Festivities

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nicely presented. Everything we needed for our stay was available. The baskets of possibly forgotten items in the bathrooms is a very nice amenity. We would recommend this property to anyone who might ask.

The fairway out the back door was great for sledding, too

Loved the bears on the beds, but do believe so many accent pillows on the beds are not necessary.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Your feedback means so much to us. I (the booking manager) completely agree about the pillow's, but the owner just loves to buy them :).

Clean, gorgeous and well located

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here in 2015 just before Christmas and it was beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice and my family still talks about it. We rented a different cabin in Arnold this year because this one was booked, and seeing other cabins underscored what a great place this is. The owner takes immaculate care of this cabin. You will discover that in the cabin rules document when you book it.

I love the furnishings and it had lots of comfy beds and a nice movie area. It's right on the golf course so if there is snow you can sled right out the back door. I would totally go back to this cabin.
