About the property

A cabin with all the comforts of home! Everything you need, just come on up!

Nice comfy cozy cabin in the Sierra's close to skiing, located in the Blue Lake Springs area in Arnold, CA. Whether you want winter fun, or a fun time during the warmer months, the cabin is the place for you to call home during your stay up in the mountains. The cabin is close to the small town of Murphy's which has excellent wine tasting rooms, music, great restaurants and shopping for all ages. It is also located just a mile from the Big Trees State Park which has wonderful hiking trails in amongst the beautiful redwoods. Just about 25 minutes up the mountain from the cabin is the ski area of Bear Valley. In Arnold you can rent skis, kayaks, snow boards, and more for all kinds of outdoor fun. In and around the cabin are many lakes and areas to picnic with the whole family or with your friends. Blue Lake Springs offers to our guests the use of their pool which opens seasonally at the end of May, swimming in their lake as well as tennis courts, and a very nice restaurant.

At the cabin you wil enter on the top level which has a loft area, a bedroom with two twin beds and a full bath. Going down the stairs takes you to the main living area with a living room that has a wood burning fireplace, dinning area, kitchen and master bedroom with a queen size bed and a full bath. There is a good size deck for you to enjoy off the living room. Great for enjoying an evening cocktail and sunset through the trees.

The cabin is fully equipped with everything you would need during your stay.

Come and stay for a night or for a week and relax in the beauty of this special area of the Sierras!

I am an abstract painter living in the Carmel area. The cabin has been in our family for many years and it is always a joy to go up there.

Why BARBARA J CODD chose Gold Country / High Sierra

I love to go up to the cabin though whenever I can to relax by the fire, hike at the Big Trees State Park and also go over to Murphy's for some wine tasting. There is often live music playing at various locations all year round. The amenities at the location close to the cabin in the Blue Lake Springs area are very nice to take advantage of, nice pool, lake, tennis courts, and many more activities plus a nice restaurant. In Arnold you can rent skis, snow shoes, or kayaks and bikes and kayaks during the warmer months.

The cabin is very cozy and fully equipped with everything you would need for your stay. Unlike other cabins that you rent and have to bring your own linens, towels, etc. You don't have to worry about any of that.

The beauty of the area is so special and there is also the benefit of so much to do!

What makes this cabin unique

I love sitting out on the large deck during the warmer months, and in the winter I love just laying around in front of the fire and relaxing. There is so much to do in and around the area. So close for skiing, Big Trees State Park, Murphy's wine tasting rooms, pool, lakes, hiking, shopping and good restaurants. You'll have a great time any time of year. Wifi, cable tv for those stay in when it snows days.

Clean. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

"Cape Codd" was the perfect place to be near Big Trees Calaveras [only 3 miles away]! The residence was clean and very comfortable. Our host, B. Codd, was gracious & kept in good contact concerning any needs or questions about the rental or surrounding area. There are 3 small, clean lakes within a couple miles off of Moran (the main street that runs through Blue Lake Springs). We even went to a fantastic concert at Ironstone Winery in nearby Murphys. "Cape Codd" is worth repeat visits.

PS: "Cape Codd" has fantastic wifi connection, but if cell phone data connection is vital to you, be sure to check if your carrier has coverage in Arnold.

Nice layout, convenient location, very clean, but needs attention.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely seating area and great two bedroom setup, but house needs attention to details (like a clock in the bedroom) and updating.

Good, but for......

  • 3 of 5

Good things first....The cabin pictures look like the cabin. It is a very nice location. Sitting on the deck in the evening at sunset was wonderful. The floor plan is nice for a large group. Each floor has a living area, a bedroom and a bath. So, I can see that it would be comfortable for two couples or a family. It was just my husband and I so we just used the bottom floor. The bbq is new and was great to use. Now for the not so good stuff. No toilet paper...I'm not kidding NONE. Leaving one extra roll in each bathroom is not much to ask. We left some when we left, simply as a courtesy to the next guests, if only until they can have time to unpack. Only two wash clothes in the entire cabin. Two...that is it. Could spend a little more time cleaning...cabinet doors were sticky, like they hadn't been wiped down for awhile. And, the heat. It is not air conditioned, which is clearly in the description but I missed it. In the afternoon it was extremely hot. The ceiling fan in the main living area had not been switched to blow cool air down on you. There were two fans available which we used, however, the type of fans are not the type that could be placed in windows which would have helped cool the rooms down by pulling in the cool air.. That being said, it did cool down at night. The deck is borderline unsafe. Nails sticking up, railing is treacherous. Don't go out there barefoot....ouch!

The cabin is located in the Blue Lake Springs area in Arnold. Blue Lake Springs offer many amenities for our guests. A pool, lake, tennis courts, and a restaurant plus movie night and other activities for a family if you want to take advantage of these things.

The cabin is also located just minutes from the beautiful Big Trees State Park where there are several hiking trails and the Sequoia River. This is a must see!

The cabin is located just ten minutes from the little town of Murphy's which has numerous wine tasting rooms, good restaurants and other activities. There are also some nice restaurants and shops in Arnold. A little gift shop called "Fine Things" is one of my favorites.

In the summer there is a lot going on in the area including live bands playing around the area. Pick up the local paper to find out what is happening.

For winter sports, the cabin is about 25 miles from Bear Valley Ski Resort. In and around Arnold you can rent ski gear, and in the summer months kayaks.
