About Simona

We are a family that loves the outdoors! That is why we purchased RISE Lodge in Arnold. The area offers something for every time of year and for every age group. Most importantly, the cabin allows for great family bonding time which we hope you enjoy.

Simona purchased this house in 2013

Why Simona chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We purchased this home because it sits on a beautiful piece of land, lush with redwoods. The street and the neighbors, while visible are a good distance away to provide plenty of privacy. Once we purchased the cabin, we began a remodeling project which included new floors, a new stone spa style master bath, a complete addition of a game room and much more. Now the home offers rustic cabin charm with all the updates of modern convenience.

What makes this house unique

The incredible thing about RISE Lodge are the three decks. The main deck, raised 20 feet in the air and over 450sq feet in size makes you feel like you are floating in the redwoods. (The deck is secure for young children and small dogs.) The deck includes an 8 person conversation area with a table that turns into a fire pit, a BBQ and a large square dinning table set for 8. The hot tub deck offers privacy for the spa and the rear deck offers more forested mountain views and a breakfast/bar table.

Wonderful & relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very enjoyable & relaxing. It was great that linens & towels are provided. The home was very clean. The highlight was the hot tub on one of the decks. Instructions are provided for everything you may need or want to use which was very handy. The only thing we couldn't get working was the fire pit but it didn't deter from our enjoyment of our stay. The decor of the home is very nice. The home is very close to the grocery store which was very convenient. There are a lot of recreational options in the surrounding areas such as Lake Alpine, caverns, & gold mining town of Colombia or quaint town of Murphys. My family & I are already talking about going back.

Very nice vacation home, very clean, attentive owner and plenty of amenities. My family really enjoyed the home. Very large deck with hot tub and propane fire pit. Description of the property is spot on. We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck and day tripped most of the time. The location was perfect about 2.5hrs from San Francisco, Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. Plan to take longer on those trips because the scenery is so beautiful you will want to stop quite a bit. Plenty of hiking in the area. Big Trees Park is a must and about 5 miles from the house. Arnold Rim Trail is less than 1 mile from the house and very scenic. There were other homes within sight but I felt it was very private and quiet except for a few barking dogs. One morning My wife and I took our coffee and walked around the rear of the house. Spotted 5 deer bedded down about 25ft from us. They slowly got up and took about 10 min before they left the property. There were only a couple of issues but I looked at it as more of a blessing than an actual issue. All four of us were able to connect to the internet but no luck getting to any web pages. I guess that's to be expected when you are in the mountains. Big Trees Market is less than a mile away and we were able to get full signals if you really feel the need. There is basic cable but we couldn't get any channels. We were able to bring up the guide and click on a local channel but there was no picture just the description of what was on. Not sure if the cable service was having issues or operator error on our part but I never contacted the owner in regards to that because I actually loved being disconnected for a full week. I can't say enough good things about the property and the attentiveness of the owner. Absolutely perfect for unplugging and dropping your blood pressure.

Amazing property, very clean and modern, comfortable for two families with dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home. The owner was very attentive and helpful before and during our stay. The deck under the redwoods is an oasis as is the hot tub and fire pit. There's even a great dog run outside where we safely kept our dog outside to play during the day. These owners have thought through it all! Loved the binder of helpful hints and ideas too! We look forward to returning soon!

Beautiful home in a beautiful serene setting.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and inviting, we were sad to leave. All amenities provided were utilized and appreciated. The deck is truly the centerpiece of where we spent our time. We used the smoker, the grill, the hot tub, and the firepit every night. Don't miss Calaveras Big Trees, it is beautiful, we did both the north and south trails.

The only thing that would have made our stay better was a change in the mattress in the master bedroom. It is comfortable but made loud noises with every movement.

Thank you for allowing us the use of this beautiful home!!
