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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even better in person! Wonderful location, close to everything. The owners responded right away when we had one small issue with the hot tub. The cabin is well stocked and a wonderful location to spend a family vacation. I highly recommend!

Quiet neighborhood, cozy cabin w/3 decks, lots of room, plenty of local activities/amenities

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the large main deck with the fire pit and second deck off master bedroom with hot tub (which was hot when we got there!). Third deck out back door was handy to walk dog, just feet from under the trees. Used wood fireplace during stormy nights and had wonderful views out of the many windows. We saw deer, squirrels and the seasonal creek was running good. Dog crate in master bedroom was a nice surprise and was used nightly for our pooch. Fun decor, lots of linens and blankets, large dining room table, spacious garage, cable TV, wifi and use of landline.

Visited Big Trees State Park (most of it is closed because of fallen trees, but still a good, close trip), town of Murphy's (great shopping, food and wine/beer), Mercer Caverns (did cave tour), Moaning Caverns (did zip line!), ran the beautiful neighborhood and mainly just lounged on the comfy couches with blankets, a coffee and great company. Heater works great.

Want to say also that this was my first VRBO and it was a great owner/renter experience.

Loved the Rise Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was comfortable, clean and in a great location. My adult siblings and I had a reunion, of sorts. The house gave plenty of privacy for when we needed to retreat to our quiet place. I think we will come back!

Perfect spot for our family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend was my family's second stay at the RISE Lodge, and it was just as fun and relaxing as we remembered it. This cabin had everything we were hoping for (i.e. all the necessities and comforts we needed) and nothing that we were hoping to avoid (i.e. traffic, noise, and pollution). I stayed with my wife and our four children, and there was plenty of room for everyone. I really liked how we all just enjoyed sitting on the big comfy couches and hung out.

We ate in every night and enjoyed every meal, as the kitchen and outdoor grill provided everything we needed. All of the plates, cutlery, and kitchen gadgets you might need are already there.

My daughters loved the playroom, and we all enjoyed the hot tub every night.

For day trips, we hiked in Calaveras Big Trees State Park and played in the snow at the Spicer Sno-Park. Both were big hits and are highly recommended by my crew. Comfortable and cozy are the two words I would use to describe the RISE Lodge the best.

We will definitely be back as soon as we can.

Peaceful stay with lots of room and comfort.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a family vacation. We were lucky that there was plenty of snow for the kids to play in.

All the amenity's were nice and in good working condition. The gas BBQ, hot tub, wood stove and heating. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need for cooking. Home is a reverse floor plan so if you have problems with stairs, that would be your only concern. But once you are up stairs everything is up there you need...including bed rooms. Bedrooms, bathrooms had bedding and bath towels. There was wifi, satilite, all television.

Simona was kind and informative. She had very good recommmendations, and was flexible with us coming a bit early.

We would definitely rent this home again! Had a great get away!
