About The Cabin

  • 2 Bedrooms, each with a Queen bed (portable crib & rocking chair in front bedroom).
    Large loft  with Cal-King bed and 4 Twin beds (baby gate for the stairs).
    Living Room has 2 built-in couches which can become Twin beds, if needed.
    Full bath on main floor, ½ bath in loft.
  • Full kitchen is open to the living room and dining area and includes a refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher,  microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker/grinder, mini food processor, electric pancake griddle, waffle maker, hot air popper, lots of dishes, glasses, wine glasses, utensils.  (We have a child-proof lock over the cabinet containing dish liquid and cleansers.)
  • Dining table can accommodate 6-8 people.  Additionally, there is seating for 3 at the kitchen counter.
  • Living room has vaulted ceilings, beautiful windows showcasing the surrounding trees, comfy “over-stuffed” couches, and a large wood-burning fireplace with gas starter.  (Please bring your own firewood – you can buy wood at Big Trees Market off Hwy 4.  The large bin in the entry may be used for wood storage.)
  • We have free WiFi and there is a stereo with CD player (and cassette player) and a stack of CDs featuring a variety of music genres.   There is also a large TV with hookups for a laptop or iPad that you can use to access the internet.
  • Large loft with large TV, DVD player, books, board  games, and puzzles.  There is also a DVD player in one of the bedrooms and, as mentioned, a small one in the living room.
  • Sorry, but there is no TV service – after all you’re there to enjoy nature!
  • New, child- and pet-friendly deck wraps around two sides of the house, has two sets of tables/chairs, one with an umbrella, and a large gas BBQ with utensils.  The deck is surrounded by lots of pine trees and one rather large Oak!
  • Pets are welcome.  We ask that you please act responsibly and inform us of any accidents so we can have our cleaning staff tend to it properly.
  • A phone is in the kitchen for you to use – we have free local and long distance so feel free to talk away!   (Note: Cell phone service is spotty in the mountains.  Verizon works pretty well at the cabin, especially outside on the deck.  Other service providers may work along Hwy 4 but only 1 bar so it’s iffy.)
  • Provided:  Sheets, pillows, blankets, toilet paper, hand soap, dish liquid, paper towels, iron/board.  (Note, please bring sheets for the portable baby crib.)
  • PLEASE BRING: firewood, bath/hand/dish towels, baggies/Tupperware/aluminum foil, bath soap, toiletries, hair dryer and enough clothes for your entire stay.  We do not have a washer/dryer onsite – “Alpine Coin Laundry” is at 2720 Hwy 4, in the High Country Spa & Stove Center (209-795-3593) on the left before entering Arnold.  They are open 7 days a week, 7:00 am – 8:00 pm.
  • There are basic condiments in the kitchen and a large grocery store (with deli, organic produce, supplies) just 2 miles away: “Big Trees Market” , 2182 Hwy 4, on the left as you enter town.  There are also several great restaurants in town.
  • We use Go Green Cleaning – an amazing cleaning service which uses only green, environmentally-safe cleaning products (without adding cost or sacrificing cleanliness!) so we can provide a healthier environment for your family and for the beautiful Sierras you’ve come to enjoy.  The house is also up-to-date with smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector for your family’s protection.
  • Please, no smoking inside the cabin.
  • There is no air conditioning and it can be quite warm in the summer.  We have 2 ceiling fans in the loft and 2 standing fans provided.
  • The long gravel driveway has a bit of a slope and you will need to back out.  This is usually no problem for any type of vehicle (we drive a Prius) however if you are
    uncomfortable, you can park on Gertrude Way (if it’s snowing – you’ll need to
    move off the street for snow plows).
