About the Property

Classic Cabin with access to skiing, hiking, biking, lakes, fishing

From its original knotty pine walls, to its large wood-burning stove, to the giant pine trees towering overhead, this is not a condo in the mountains -- this is classic, cozy, old-world cabin on a large wooded lot, but equipped with modern conveniences.

• 30 miles from Bear Valley Ski Resort; also great cross-country skiing and sledding nearby.
• Large wood-burning stove and gas wall heater to keep you cozy in winter and ceiling fans to keep you cool in summer.
• Enjoy the picnic table under the trees, relaxing in the hammock and playing horseshoes in the backyard.
• Fantastic hiking and mountain biking nearby - Big Trees State Park and the Arnold Rim Trail are just up the road.
• 5 minutes from White Pines Lake for relaxing at a sandy lakeshore, fishing and picnicking. There is also a nice children's playground.
• Short walk to Snowshoe Brewing Company, a well-stocked grocery store and a great coffee shop with free WiFi.
• Short drive to Murphy's great restaurants, shops and wine tasting.
• Conveniences include: 42" LED TV and DVD player (lots of DVD's for kids and parents) iPod/phone jack for music, full kitchen (oven/stove, microwave, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker).
• We like to go to the mountains to "unplug and relax" so we do NOT have Wifi at the cabin. If you need to get you fix there's great coffee and free Wifi just across the road at the coffee shop
• NO PETS; NO SMOKING of any kind on the property
• Sleeps 6 guests. You bring your own linens and towels so we can keep the rates and cleaning fees reasonable
• Check-in is 3:00pm and check-out is noon; we can accommodate early/late check-in/out depending on availability.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The cabin has been in our family since the 1970's. We continue to update it with modern conveniences but always try to keep its classic charm.

Why the Owner Chose Arnold, CA, USA:
In the winter, there's skiing and sledding. In the summer, there's the river, hiking, and biking. There's always something to do in Arnold.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Kennedy Cabin was built in 1954 and represents a typical California cabin of that era -- from its original knotty pine walls, to its large wood-burning stove, to the giant pine trees towering overhead. With its cozy feel, hammock between the pines and collection of books, games and the DVDs, our hope is that you will be as relaxed and comfortable as we are when we're at the cabin.
