Overview

About the property

Situated in the heart of Blue Lake Springs, the Brady Family Cabin awaits you!

This beautifully remodeled Swiss Chalet-style cabin has everything you need to make your next family vacation the best ever! Imagine putting the younger kids to bed upstairs, letting the older kids play pool and watch movies in the rec room, while you enjoy hours of UNINTERRUPTED conversation with family and friends. It actually happens. Here.

Our family has owned this property since 1971. Three generations of Bradys have created life-long memories here, and it would be our privilege to have you and your family as our next guests! The upstairs floor has two bedrooms with private balconies and a full bathroom. The main floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. Also on the main floor is the spacious kitchen and dining area, family room with wood burning stove, laundry facilities, and access to the large front and back decks. Downstairs you'll find the popular rec room with pool table, HD flat screen with sound bar stereo speakers, hide-a-bed sofa, and a full bathroom. Outside is a large fire pit, perfect for socializing and gazing up at the towering pines overhead. Horseshoes is also an ever-popular option.

The Brady Family Cabin comes with free Wi-Fi, Comcast cable, and free movies streamed through Netflix, plus Pandora and other entertainment channels. The back deck has a new gas grill, and all beds have new mattresses.

You'll sleep soundly after exploring all the amazing outdoor recreation opportunities nearby. Play all day at Snow Flake Lodge, where you'll find a pool, two lakes, tennis courts, boccie ball, shuffle board, volley ball, ping pong and more! Play a round of golf at nearby Forest Meadows Golf Course. Rent a kayak or SUP and take in the beautiful views of White Pines Lake, Lake Alpine, or Spicer Reservoir. Hit the trails on the recently improved Arnold Rim Trail, with jaw-dropping views of the Central Valley from Manual Peak and Cougar Rock. Gaze at 2000 year old Giant Sequoia Redwood trees at nearby Big Trees State Park. Go rafting on the Stanislaus River. Tour several of the award-winning wineries in nearby Murphys. Or simply sit in one of our hammock chairs and listen to the wind whistling through the pines.

About David Brady

My family has enjoyed this cabin for over 40 years. My brother and sisters and I have all spent significant time here, whether working as lifeguards during the summers, taking ski vacations as a family, or even living here full-time on occasion. I currently live in nearby Angels Camp where I teach Spanish at Bret Harte High School. I manage the property on behalf of my siblings. My parents also still live nearby. I will personally do all I can to help you have the perfect family vacation at our Cabin!

David Brady purchased this cabin in 1971

Why David Brady chose Gold Country / High Sierra

This area offers all the spectacular beauty of Lake Tahoe, while maintaining an easy-going, family-friendly atmosphere. For those who enjoy the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, you'll find an endless supply of opportunities here. Over the years we've discovered our favorites. We hope you'll visit us and discover yours as well.

What makes this cabin unique

The peaceful serenity of our Cabin is almost palpable the minute you walk through the front door. Large decks in front and back invite you to read, socialize, or take a nap. The cozy upstairs back bedroom will keep kids entertained for hours on snowy winter afternoons with arts & crafts and board games. Just taking a quiet walk around the block does wonders to clear your head and begin to appreciate the natural beauty surrounding you. And nothing beats curling up with a good book in front of a warm fire as the snow falls silently in the night outside. Come and experience it all for yourself at the Brady Family Cabin.

Great place - perfect for two families with growing children!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families with small children staying here in the winter. Great, easy access to the town of Arnold and to Bear Valley, where we took the kids sledding. The kids loved the game room and the kids' room with bunk beds and games upstairs! The adults loved that the kids were there and entertained so we could relax with some wine! We also got some great use out of the BBQ grill and the back deck on a sunny, warm spring day.

Great Place & Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. The ground was covered in a thin layer of snow that added to the coziness of the house. Big kitchen and dining room was great for big meals. Living room was big enough for all 10 of us plus an awesome fireplace with an endless supply of wood.

The host, David, just gets it. Wish I had a better adjective but that sums it up. We asked to checkout a little late on our last day and because the place was open David told us to stay as long as we wanted that day. We had a couple glasses break and when I offered to pay for them David said not to worry. Had great suggestions for rentals and outdoor activities.

If I was going to Arnold with a big group I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent house for multi families with children. The house is spacious with plenty of dishes, pots and pans and user friendly furnishings. Everything you need is here with plenty of bedding and large fluffy towels. It is very clean and the kitchen and bathrooms are nicely updated. The bedrooms are very comfortable and everything is nicely decorated. We really loved everything and the pool table in the basement with the entertainment system. We would stay here again and highly recommend it for other families or groups of friends. Thank you David for letting us stay in your great place!
