About the Property

Situated in the heart of Blue Lake Springs, the Brady Family Cabin awaits you!

This beautifully remodeled Swiss Chalet-style cabin has everything you need to make your next family vacation the best ever! Imagine putting the younger kids to bed upstairs, letting the older kids play pool and watch movies in the rec room, while you enjoy hours of UNINTERRUPTED conversation with family and friends. It actually happens. Here.

Our family has owned this property since 1971. Three generations of Bradys have created life-long memories here, and it would be our privilege to have you and your family as our next guests! The upstairs floor has two bedrooms with private balconies and a full bathroom. The main floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. Also on the main floor is the spacious kitchen and dining area, family room with wood burning stove, laundry facilities, and access to the large front and back decks. Downstairs you'll find the popular rec room with pool table, HD flat screen with sound bar stereo speakers, hide-a-bed sofa, and a full bathroom. Outside is a large fire pit, perfect for socializing and gazing up at the towering pines overhead. Horseshoes is also an ever-popular option.

The Brady Family Cabin comes with free Wi-Fi, Comcast cable, and free movies streamed through Netflix, plus Pandora and other entertainment channels. The back deck has a new gas grill, and all beds have new mattresses.

You'll sleep soundly after exploring all the amazing outdoor recreation opportunities nearby. Play all day at Snow Flake Lodge, where you'll find a pool, two lakes, tennis courts, boccie ball, shuffle board, volley ball, ping pong and more! Play a round of golf at nearby Forest Meadows Golf Course. Rent a kayak or SUP and take in the beautiful views of White Pines Lake, Lake Alpine, or Spicer Reservoir. Hit the trails on the recently improved Arnold Rim Trail, with jaw-dropping views of the Central Valley from Manual Peak and Cougar Rock. Gaze at 2000 year old Giant Sequoia Redwood trees at nearby Big Trees State Park. Go rafting on the Stanislaus River. Tour several of the award-winning wineries in nearby Murphys. Or simply sit in one of our hammock chairs and listen to the wind whistling through the pines.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: My family has enjoyed this cabin for over 40 years. My brother and sisters and I have all spent significant time here, whether working as lifeguards during the summers, taking ski vacations as a family, or even living here full-time on occasion. I currently live in nearby Angels Camp where I teach Spanish at Bret Harte High School. I manage the property on behalf of my siblings. My parents also still live nearby. I will personally do all I can to help you have the perfect family vacation at our Cabin!

Why the Owner Chose Arnold, CA, USA:
This area offers all the spectacular beauty of Lake Tahoe, while maintaining an easy-going, family-friendly atmosphere. For those who enjoy the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, you'll find an endless supply of opportunities here. Over the years we've discovered our favorites. We hope you'll visit us and discover yours as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The peaceful serenity of our Cabin is almost palpable the minute you walk through the front door. Large decks in front and back invite you to read, socialize, or take a nap. The cozy upstairs back bedroom will keep kids entertained for hours on snowy winter afternoons with arts & crafts and board games. Just taking a quiet walk around the block does wonders to clear your head and begin to appreciate the natural beauty surrounding you. And nothing beats curling up with a good book in front of a warm fire as the snow falls silently in the night outside. Come and experience it all for yourself at the Brady Family Cabin.
