About Elis Imboden
Elis grew up camping in the woods of northern California, and, as a busy mom and university administrator, loves the tranquility of reading a good book surrounded by trees on the deck before anyone's awake. Lucas loves the skiing at Bear Valley and summer days at the lake.
Elis Imboden purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Elis Imboden chose Arnold
Arnold is ideally located, with loads of activities but plenty of peace and quiet. Lakemont Pines is like an old-time lake resort in the summer, with outdoor movies, ice cream, and sandcastle contests at the private lake.

Wonderful stay with snow in May
While the weather wasn't what we anticipated for late May, the cabin ended up being a perfect place to be stuck indoors. Plenty of entertainment, with lots of games, puzzles, and movies, and a nice kitchen for cooking. Elis was extremely helpful and responsive the whole time, and we would love to go back to enjoy the lake when it's warmer.
Comfy, cozy, and clean
My family and I loved our stay in Elis's cabin. Its location made it a great place to stay while exploring nearby Murphys and Bear Valley. The cabin itself was very clean and cozy, and the beds were super comfortable. Our three-year-old especially loved sleeping on the bunk bed. It was rainy for much of our stay and we didn't get to explore the nearby trail and lake as we had hoped, but thankfully the cabin was well-equipped with games and puzzles to make for enjoyable family time indoors. I would highly recommend this cabin to any small family looking to stay in the area. We hope to return in the warmer days ahead to spend some time at the lake.
Cozy cabin centrally located
Enjoyed our stay. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!
This compact cabin contains all anyone would need or want for a fabulous vacation. We came in August, swam in the lake and used all the games, kayaks, and pedal boats. It was so much fun for our twin 10 yr. old grand daughters.
Since I was cooking part of the time, I appreciated the pots, pans and condiments that were available.
The girls were enchanted with the string of lights on your deck...and I must agree, it gave a magical feel to the evenings.
We loved seeing all the wildlife: deer, a large grey Western squirrel, chipmunk, woodpeckers, rabbit and the band of wild turkeys marching through the yard early eacj morning.
The pitch (sap) on one's soles of shoes is not great, but if it gets on vehicles, it can be removed by using a soft cloth dipped in very hot water.
Thank you again. Anyone renting this cabin is in for a treat!

Perfect little getaway
Our second time at this cabin, never disappoints!
It was lovely, clean simple, quiet, comfortable, well equipped.
Thank you, sorry I forgot to sign the book. It was just what we needed. A getaway, that was comfortable, quiet, clean. We loved the deck just sitting outside reading and drifting off. Thank you so much for living up to your description.
We're right between Bear Valley skiing to the north and gold country and wineries just down the hill in Murphys. There's something for everyone, and only 2 1/2 hours from the Bay Area!
