This cabin was perfect for our multiple-family weekend away. It was comfortable, relaxing and carefree. Everything was clean and well maintained. The power did go out for about 12 hours during our time there, but the owner was deligient with updates and making us feel that he cared about the situation. He’s very reliable and professional!! Even though the situation was out of his control, he was genuine in his efforts. The beds were great and the amenities in the kitchen fit well for what we needed. A couple hiccups here and there otherwise, but nothing bad enough to not feel excited for another trip! Thanks for a great snow weekend Craig!

Every year my husband and I do a “Christmas in January” with our son and his family and our daughter. We figured out several years ago that we would rather make memories than buy presents for our kids and grandchildren. They all get plenty and after opening gifts at Christmas it just felt somewhat less than magical and we wanted MAGICAL and MEMORIES that our grandchildren will remember and cherish for a lifetime thus “ Christmas in January!”

Our stay at The Arnold cabin was both memorable and magical! Everything from the awesome bedrooms to the library of excellent books my son couldn’t get enough of to the wonderful assortment of toys and games for the grandkids! Not to mention the beautiful lake and surroundings that were just the cherry on top! Craig was absolutely amazing and walked us through the entire process FLAWLESSLY! We had a not so great experience a couple of years ago and Craig restored our faith in VRBO...thank you Craig and we look forward to MANY more magical times in Arnold!!🙌
