Christmas & New Year Vacation

Christmas & New Year Vacation
  • 5 of 5
Where to start: First off, from the beginning, contact with the owner Linda was very prompt, courteous and friendly.

The Area: The area is extremely beautiful and there are so many things to do. We finally had snow towards the later part of our stay and that was awesome! We went up towards the snow, went snow boarding, hiked, took our dog on walks, tried the Burger Joint, (which was awesome) went shopping, went to Columbia for the day and snuggled at home.

The Home: In one word "PERFECT" the home was extremely well stocked and then some. We brought our own stuff however, everything was provided with the exception of groceries. This was an extreme surprise to us! We enjoyed the hot tub, loved the fireplace downstairs, played pool. and cooked awesome dinners.

One thing I really loved was the layout of the home, the DOG run was so cool and I am going to do something similar when we purchase our next house.

Linda, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for allowing our family to stay in your humble, cozy, and warm home. It was an awesome Christmas and New Year, that our family will cherish always!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect. We had a group of 10 people with 2 toddlers and a baby and all of us were very happy and comfortable with the place. There was plenty of play room inside and out for the toddlers and the area of the cabin was incredible. Beautiful surroundings, very quiet street and nice neighbors! The cabin has a very warm cozy feel and almost everything seems updated. The carpet is very nice and new, the walls are very well insulated, can't hear anything from other bedrooms, the fans and lighting are modern with dimmers etc.., the furniture is very comfortable and obviously the owner has put money into each piece. The beds were the best part! They were the most comfortable beds we have all slept on, including the fold out mattress on the downstairs couch! It wasn't your usual sofa sleeper mattress! It was hard to get us all out of bed haha! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and stores were close by to get anything we needed. Definitely will be renting this every year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review and I am so happy you had a great time! Glad you liked the beds. The queens and king size beds are all new pillow tops. When you come back again, there will be new glass doors on the showers and refinished cabinets in the kitchen. I try very hard to make it nice and comfortable for everyone!

Have a nice Thanksgiving and Christmas

Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for our family and grand-kids (total 5 adults 2 kids) for a week to attend our youngest daughters wedding in Arnold.

The house was PERFECT for everyone. Once family took the bottom floor (living room area, bedroom and bath also laundry) and us "older" ones took the top floor (2 bedrooms, hot tub, bath, living area and kitchen).

The house was supplied with everything we needed expect food. Not knowing we took "extra" things like paper towels, laundry soap, toilet paper, trash bags, dish soap, dish washer soap etc...even coffee filters! The only things we ended us using I brought were the napkins, plastic storage containers, hand soaps and some misc storage bags.

The deck was safe for the little ones and they loved the play area with swing. The BBQ was great. Never used the oven at all.

Linda was an excellent contact and very gracious host/owner.

If I had any complaints they would be the stairs. There are many, but that's coming from a recovering hip replacement person. We told Linda she needs to put a dumb waiter in to haul food from the bottom floor to the top. She laughed and said she was thinking of that.

Also the hot tub was a bit high for me to get into, so a stool would have been a good idea. (short and hip are a bad combination)

The driveway is steep and parking is limited as this house is on a hill.

The "market" near her is awesome. They had everything you'd need and then some. If you have special dietary needs like my grand-kids, you would want to bring those items. The store does have a small organic area which is nice.

We would stay there again for sure. And the wedding went off without a hitch and all had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am happy the home fit so well with your family and the wedding was a hit. I have a contractor updating the bathrooms and kitchen right now so the home will be even better soon. Maybe some day I can put in a dumb waiter!! Thanks again!

Home rental Arnold, CA

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented many vacation homes over the past decade. This home stood out for how clean it was and for having what we needed in stock. There was a flat griddle for pancakes as well as a stock pot for a couple of racks of ribs. The deck was amazing. It was peaceful and the serene. The furniture was in great condition and comfy. All of the beds were really soft. The dog run was perfect. We appreciated not having to worry if they were safe outside.

There was plenty to do in the surrounding towns. We liked how much cooler it was in Arnold. Some of the doors and windows lacked screens. We wanted to keep them open, without bugs coming in.

The main living area was on the second floor, which was up 24 steep steps. We all agreed that the house was so good, that we were okay with the steps. It's just something to be aware of when choosing this house.

Overall, our whole family would rate this house excellent and plan on staying there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and I'm glad you found everything in order and enjoyed the deck. The stairs can be a problem for those who have a hard time climbing, but they are great exercise!! The good thing about them is they lead to a wonderful home and deck high amongst the trees. Well worth it.
I'm glad the pooch had a good time too!

Thanks again and come back for more!

Family Friendly

  • 4 of 5
This home is ideal for larger families. The deck is absolutely fabulous and we spent most of our time on it. The hot tub was very nice as well. It is in a very nice spot among the trees. The only drawback I would say is that because the house is dog-friendly there was a pervasive dog-smell which was most apparent in the downstairs area. The house was very clean but I would suggest bringing your pillows as some of the existing pillows were well used. Other than those minor things we had a very good time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I am really happy you had such a good time. I will look into the smell in the lower quarters. It was not there two weeks ago when I went up. It very well could be something new and coming from outside under the deck. One week later: I have had it checked out and for those in the future, the smell has been located and removed.


Activity and Interests

The home is just 25 miles from the Bear Valley Ski Resort so during the winter, it is the perfect spot.

It is near Murphys and Ironstone and Stevenot Wineries for those summer concerts, and the gold mining town of Columbia is close by. Alpine Lake near Bear Valley is a wonderful place to be in the summer as is Big Trees National Park just up the road. White Pines Lake in the town of Arnold has a beach. Big Trees National Forest is 5 minutes away.

The area holds many activities throughout the year including the St. Patty's day parade in March, the frog jump in May, the fourth of July Parade in July, the Bear Valley music festival in July-August, as well as small local concerts in the park in the middle of town during the summer. Bring your chair, food and wine and enjoy!

Hikers will be in paradise because there are numerous areas and several close by lakes to hike. White water rafting isclose by also. For you real adventurers, you can zip-line through the caverns between Angels Camp and Sonora.
