About Mary Jane Kiefer

Mike and Mary Jane Kiefer live in Walnut Creek CA. Mike is a scientist and Mary Jane is a Public Health Nutritionist. We have 2 children--married with children. When we found out we were having a 3rd grandson, we wanted to have a cabin in the mountains for them to enjoy and explore the great outdoors. Life gets even better, we have a 4th grandchild--a beautiful little girl.

Mary Jane Kiefer purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Jane Kiefer chose Arnold

We enjoyed Blue Lake Springs and the Arnold area when our kids were growing up--and want the memories and traditions to continue. It has central air and heat.

What makes this house unique

We love this property because it is easy, clean, modern and fun. We drive up on a Friday nite, drive into the 2 car garage and feel at home in the mountains with all the comforts of home. It now has central heat/airconditioning.

We had such a great time staying in Blue Lake Springs. The cabin is beautiful and well taken care of. We appreciated all of the baby gear, toys, and books available. We felt right at home and would definitely visit again.

Family Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! Lodge like decor, games and TVs for the kids! They had a blast playing ping pong and fooseball. Plenty of sleeping areas for 14 of us. Every kind of cooking utilities and dinnerware. Although we did not get the white Christmas we were hoping for, it was just a short drive up the hill for the grandkids to enjoy their first snow. Peaceful beautiful cozy home that I would highly recommend to anyone!

Great cabin, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We rent a cabin every year for Thanksgiving. This was a great cabin for the family. It was updated with nice furniture, TV's, etc. compared to most that we've rented. It was very clean and conformable with a well equipped kitchen.

The houses surrounding the property were fairly close, but we were lucky and most seemed empty for the holiday week.

It had a nice assortment of games and movies, and quite a few baby toys if you have young children (we didn't).

There were 2 living room areas with TV's, which was great for watching movies while football was on :-)

We were very happy, for the price and the amenities it was great.
