Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 bathroom w mountain view

Our cozy Cabin sleeps 6 adults, and plenty of room for kids. The main floor has 2 bedrooms and a full bath, the upstairs loft has a queen and two twin beds with a half bath. There are two TV's, one down stairs and another in the loft both w DVD player and a bunch of movies. There are also games, kids toys, books and video games. The cabin has dishwasher, and washer/dryer in unit.

This Cabin has brought our family many wonderful memories. We enjoy lounging at the lakes in the summer. There is great kayak rentals at Lake Alpine, a beautiful lake lined with granite boulders. There are also many small lakes in the area, a few of them are White Pines, Blue Lake Springs, and Fly in Acres, all just a few miles away. We have also found access to beautiful swimming holes on the Stanislaus River. We have enjoyed fishing with our children at the small lakes, and boating and water sports in the big lake “New Melones.” We have gone wine tasting and seen summer concerts at Ironstone vineyards in the charming old town of Murphy's. Murphy's offers great dining and shopping as well. Big Trees State Park just a few miles up Highway 4 has some amazing sites to see too, giant sequoias, hiking trails, access the the river and a snow shoe tour (with warming hut and coco) in the winter. As for meals, there is a grocery store close by called Big Trees Market. There is a variety of restaurants in town. If you are in the mood for dining out, taking home or even delivery. Our personal favorite is Sarafina’s. Also keep in mind you can refill your growler at the local Snowshoe Brewery.

In the winter, our favorite things to do is play in the snow! It is really great to be on a court, away from traffic. The kids and adults all have a blast sledding and building snowmen! Feel free to use our sleds. We go skiing/snowboarding at Bear Valley Ski Resort, there are also snow parks close to Bear Valley. Some other attractions are the Moaning Caverns and the Arnold Rim Trail which is good for hiking and biking. We have family members that enjoy dirt bike riding, off roading, hunting small game, and recreational shooting. The Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods store has fire trail maps and a very knowledgeable staff to get you headed in the right direction. There is often summer concerts and street festivals in town. We personally love taking our kids to the movies under the stars at Blue Lake Springs rec. area. People bring chairs even sleeping bags to the open air theater:) They sell pop corn and candy! We have also enjoyed family water polo competitions at the pool, story times under the tree, and kids fishing derbies all located at the Blue Lake Springs Rec. Center, aka “Snow Flake Lodge”. They also offer frisbee golf, basketball, and tennis. You can rent noodles and buy rafts to float the lake. There is a snack bar and restaurant to make for a "no packing" type of day! If you are a golfer, Forest Meadows is a beautiful golf course nestled in the trees located in Murphy’s and open to the public.

Clearly, there is endless amounts of things to do year round for families, couples, and retires. However, sometime's all you need to do is unwind. Curling up by the fire or relaxing in the hammock makes for the best moments of all. The view of the trees combined with the fresh air is so peaceful. Stargazing from the deck with a glass of wine … amazing! Either way, relaxing or adventurous, our cabin has provided our family with some of the best memories. We want to share this with you! We hope this helps you plan your trip.

Adorable cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We just left this beautiful home tucked into the woods of Arnold. The house sits on a quiet street and is simply lovely. The adorable decorations throughout the home make you feel right at home. The house is bigger than the pictures lead you to believe. We were only a group of 4, but the home could easily fit two families. The loft area would be great for the kids to hang out and play games. The kitchen is fully equipped with high quality small appliances and the bar area allowed for everyone to hang out while others were preparing the food. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed down to the coffee pot filters.

We had a great time exploring Big Trees State Park, Utica Lake, White Pines lake and of course the amenities of the housing development.

The fire pit outside made for a relaxing evening following a day in the sun and the back deck was a beautiful place to start our day with our morning coffee.

I look forward to our next trip.

Thank you Annie for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

July 27 - 30 trip

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Arnold. Dinner at Grounds in Murphys was excellent. Relaxing on the deck in the evening after BBQing and swimming in the lake and pool in Blue Lake Springs was nice. Annie offered her lake equipment to use from the cabin. THX. Nice and private I would stay there again for sure!!! Walking thru the No. and So. Sequoia groves at Big Trees State Park is a must. MW

Very nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time here!! Not at the cabin a lot (mostly spent out exploring the mountains).The only thing I would have changed was the need for A/C in the evenings. It was really hot the week we were there. And it would have been nice to have wifi to be able to plan and locate our day to day outings. Although it was great for the kids to be "unplugged" (they didnt even complain about it).

Nice place. No wifi. No garbage service.

  • 3 of 5

Very comfortable. Plenty of linens, well stocked kitchen. If you don't have Verizon, there is NO service above Murphy's. This cabin has no wifi so we had to go down to the coffee shop by Big Trees market and use theirs. You have to tote your own garbage to the dump. Close by but a line of cars 10 deep when we arrived with ours on Sunday morning! Not how I wanted to spend my last morning in the mountains. Still, had a lovely time and the upside is that no one in our party sat around with a screen in their face! I loved it!

Great little cabin in Arnold, Ca

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Arnold! The cabin was clean and warm with a big loft with a wonderful view of the pines. Outside was a great little zip-line that kids aged 3-10 all had fun on. 20 minutes up the mountain we had tons of snow and built an igloo!
