About MaryGrace Houlihan
Hi! We are an adventuresome family who loves the Mountains. We love to ski, hike, kayak, and fish. We also enjoy the Mountain Wineries, outdoor theater and music events . We have been visiting the Big Trees area for almost 30 years and about 11 years ago decided to purchase a second home there. When we are not visiting our mountain getaway we are travelling.
MaryGrace Houlihan purchased this House in 2005
Why MaryGrace Houlihan chose Arnold
The Big Trees area is family friendly and very relaxing. You get the benefits of the mountains while still having modern conveniences. Our Cabin is a home and we ask that folks visiting enjoy their stay and respect that it is a family home.

Great house for families with kiddos!
We had an absolutely amazing holiday weekend. We were a short drive to the snow, local grocery stores and restaurants. The house was warm and welcoming. The game room was a hit with the kids (and adults). We spent quality time cooking dinner, playing board games, and watching movies. The hot tub was an amazing way to end the night. The hosts are both friendly, and quick to respond. I would absolutely recommend this home for a family getaway.
A great family getaway
We spent a long weekend with family for my husband's 40th birthday. In early January there wasn't snow at the cabin this year, but we were able to drive 30 minutes to Bear Valley for snow play and skiiing. It was nice to come back to a warm cabin and not have to worry about snow tires. There was plenty of room for 8 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen had all the amenities we could need. The rooms were comfortable and the kids especially loved the game room downstairs. We made lots of wonderful memories and can't wait to do it again.
Was a nice place for family. Very clean. Spacious. Beautiful location.
Drawbacks...we have always received kudos for our departure cleanliness. This is the only place that made us feel they are asking too much (and we have high standards), was too much. Rentors should not have to wipe out refrigerator and freezer. Should not have to empty bathroom trash. Should not have to remake beds (this was with buying linen service). We brought our own blankets because we then assumed your blankets were unclean. Garbage was not picked up on Monday as stated. We were tight. Wanted all dishes washed and put away (never in my experience..usually load and start dishwasher). Overall was nice place but too many expectations for people that want to be on vacation.
Lovely home for famalies
The great room was super inviting, had a huge table to support family and friends. We loved sitting in the hot tub in the morning or evening and just looking up at the trees and the stars.
The downstairs "rec room/man cave" was a big hit with my kids, in fact they would run down and we would rarely see them. The TV, video Games, air hockey table and the triple bunks all kept them super entertained. The master on the top floor was super cozy and the bed was super cozy with an electric blanket. It was great that there was a bathroom on each floor.
