This is an original cabin in the first neighborhood in Arnold. We have updated it completely but left the original flavor intact. For example it has full kitchen with dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, wireless internet and has city water and sewer, but does not have cabletv or gaming consoles. The living room and dining room are not "great rooms", but cozy get together spaces. If you are the type of folks who love to ski and hike or swim and canoe, then head home for a home cooked meal, a beer and a video or book- this is the spot for you!!
The house is 100% accessible with the exception of a few closets where we maintain personal items
We will not be present during your stay
PS- here is a bit more perspective on our home...
I wanted to give everyone a view into more about the house. I am personally someone who travels to find a different scene. I enjoy a trailer on the beach, or a tree house in the forest and am a bit frustrated by a suburban home replete with big box furnishings- I just don’t feel the love <3. When we renovated the cabin, which needed everything from roof to foundation plus bathroom and kitchen, I kept it as close to the lumberjack cabin that it was built as, in the 1930s while making it “modern” with dishwasher, disposal etc. I have bought all furnishings at auctions and estate sales. I collect blue transferware and the like which makes up the dinnerware and buy white towels, sheets, and down comforters when they are on sale. Thus, you have a collection of things which for me is beautiful and charming. For others, it may feel shabby and distressing. The house was also has a design flaw that dumps snow off the roof right in front of the garage door (the lumberjacks weren’t very forward thinking) and requires a very sturdy structure to keep the snow away from the door that won’t be crushed by the heavy snow. You have to move it and some find this also distressing. I have never had a problem moving it, - nor have my kids, but you might. We actually are working on a design for a steel replacement. The house has been built with love and an eye to the country life. I have another site I list on, where it is highly rented because it’s a different group of folks looking for “different”. But there are a lot of houses on here that are lovely- and you may be more comfy with one a little less country- and you should have a lovely vacation- so look around and choose what suits your style! I hope this help a little and that you have a restful and wonderful holiday.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We have had hte house since 99 and had a lot of fun at Bear Valley skiing with my kids, at White Pines lake floating on the surfboard and hiking everywhere. This house is a home, not and investment, and we are happy to share it with like minded people who care about spending time with friends and family in the outdoors.
Why the Owner Chose Arnold, CA, USA:
We looked for a long time for a property that shared some history and a story. This was one of the original houses built in Arnold to house a logging family. It is not a typical "mountain property" but more of a cabin unglamorous and homey. We had to do major renovations, but kept the original character intact. Lots of people have loved this house, because it its a bit quirky- and we love it that way.
