traveler reviews for this arnold cabin rental

Gorgeous cabin

Review submitted: June 28, 2014   Date of arrival: June 23, 2014

My family spent the week at this great cabin. It's very nicely renovated with awesome wifi updates. The location was perfect. Blue Lake Springs / Snowflake Lodge were super fun. We went every day, often to swim after hiking and boating the surrounding Forests and lakes. We felt lucky to be there. Bravo to Karen and Mark, and to the folks who run Snowflake Lodge.

Loved your "Home"!

Review submitted: June 5, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

Our triplet boys loved the "Lazy Bear Lodge" so much that they begged us to buy it so that we could always come back here. The house is set up as a home & not like your normal rental. Everything is set up to welcome you and make your stay relaxing and easy. The outside deck has a lovely gathering area with couches which enabled us to have wonderful family chats while looking at the stars. Our kiddos also loved the swing that hangs underneath the house.

We spent most of our time at Fly in Lake within the BLS property as it was less crowded and it turns out that we did not need/desire the BLS pool/tennis facilities as the lake was all the kids could talk about. They met many new friends at the lake.

We also went to Columbia State Park to pan for Gold and see the historical buildings. It is about 30 minutes away and well worth it for anyone with kids old enough to know about the Gold Rush and pan for Gold. We had a hard time getting the kids to leave the gold pan area as they were sure they were going to strike it rich. 8-)

The owner was also very helpful in answering our pre-trip questions quickly.

Our group included 3 adults and 4 kids (ages 10 & 11)

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Excellent Cabin Getaway

Review submitted: April 8, 2014   Date of arrival: March 30, 2014

Our family of four (two children under the age of 7) very much enjoyed our stay at the "Lazy Bear Lodge". The cabin must have recently undergone a tasteful, clean remodel, yet it still maintained a cozy, cabin-in-the-woods feel (bear decor, wood burning stove, etc). All necessary modern amenities were available (wi-fi, streaming media, etc) and it was perfectly laid-out for a family with young children, including a room with two bunk beds. Highly recommend.

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing
