About the Property

A quiet family cabin great for a get away from it all to enjoy the mountains

3 bedroom, 2 bath chalet style 2-story cabin property in the Big Trees area of Dorrington/Camp Connell/Arnold area just a 5 minute drive from scenic California state highway 4 - around 45 minutes towards the mountains from Angels Camp, Ca. The cabin is set among a towering forest of tall trees that provides both inspiration and beauty for your stay. Our cabin sleeps 9 comfortably, and is in a quiet, serene location, located on a circle with extremely little traffic.

The cabin is a two story with the main room, dining, kitchen, bath, and two bedrooms on the second story, along with a private scenic deck overlooking the pine trees. Downstairs is another bath, a bed and bunk beds, and some room for kids to play. There is an ample open yard for games of catch, evening camp fires for roasting marshmellows, or sledding when it snows!

We have most everything you need for relaxation and/or adventure up in the mountains at 5200 feet of elevation. Just pack a bag, bring some food, and your friends or loved ones.


Close to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, Bear Valley Ski Resort, White Pines and Alpine Lakes and the North Fork of the Stanislaus River - the cabin is a wonderful base camp to experience all the Sierra Mountains have to offer both in summer and winter.

Don't worry about traffic or crowds you might experience in other places, we find the Big Trees area and highway 4 corridor up to Bear Valley and Ebbets Pass to be a friendly, low stress and rewarding experience year round.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a family of 4 with two young boys who cherish our opportunities to spend time at our cabin and also enjoy sharing it with others. We moved to California from Colorado and have wanted to stay connected to the high country. We always leave reinvigorated and refreshed from our visits to the mountains and hope you will as well.

Why the Owner Chose Camp Connell, CA, USA:
We looked at many spots in Tahoe and the Highway 4 corridor and when we arrived here we just had this feeling and knew this was the place, I think it was the tall pine and cedar trees on the property that create a very peaceful ambiance.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One of the things we appreciate with young boys is that the cabin is on a 'dead end' circle with very very little traffic. That allows the boys ride bikes and play in the street with only a little worry.
