Arnold is well-located for a weekend getaway (~2.5 hours from the East Bay and ~3 hours from SF) and as a convenient base for your adventures in the Sierras. If you haven't been to Arnold and Gold Country, there is so much to explore! The cabin is on a small parcel in a quiet neighborhood, removed but close to town. We're just a 5-minute walk to the Arnold Rim Trail (with 30+ miles of hiking), 10-minute drive to Big Trees State Park, 15 minutes to the town of Murphys (great wineries, pubs and dining), 40 minutes to Bear Valley Ski Resort, 10 minutes to White Pines Lake, 45 minutes to Lake Alpine. We’re happy to recommend our favorite spots for hiking and swimming. If your trip is taking you farther afield, we’re 2 hours from Yosemite, and 2.5 hours from Lake Tahoe via the less-traveled Highway 4 in warmer months. Or you can can always just relax with a view in the cabin. Learn more about this land: Our classic 1970s A-frame cabin offers a simple space of retreat with lovely light, view of the trees and uncluttered decor. Great for couples and also solo travelers! Please note there is a 2 night minimum on weekends (if overlaps with a Fri or Sat) and a 3 night minimum for holiday weekends. We're well-located for a weekend getaway (~2.5 hours from the East Bay and ~3 hours from SF) and as a base for your adventures in the Sierras. There's lots to explore nearby with Big Trees State Park and Stanislaus National Forest within minutes, lakes, skiing, mountain towns and wine-tasting, or just relax at the cabin and take in the view. The cabin is on a small parcel in a quiet neighborhood, removed but close to town. We're a 5-minute walk to the Stanislaus National Forest/Arnold Rim Trail (we provide a custom map for nearby hikes), 10-minute drive to Big Trees State Park, 15 minutes to the town of Murphys (great wineries, pubs and dining), 40 minutes to Bear Valley Ski Resort, 10 minutes to White Pines Lake, 45 minutes to Lake Alpine and Utica and Union lakes. We’re happy to recommend our favorite spots for hiking and swimming. If your trip is taking you farther afield, we’re ~2 hours from Yosemite's Big Oak Flat entrance, and 2.5 hours from Lake Tahoe via the less-traveled Highway 4 in warmer months.  We do our best here to strike a balance between simple amenities and comfort. A reminder that we are in the country, so the cabin is best suited to those who like a more rustic getaway. There is no AC, television, or microwave. We've gone without a TV and landline, but WiFi means you can stream to your own devices and make WiFi calls on your cell. We have loads of board games and puzzles. The kitchen has pots/pans/kettle, toaster, mini waffle iron, Brita pitcher, and rice cooker. For coffee drinkers, we have a coffee grinder, french press and pour over dripper.  Help yourself to organic coffee and tea! The cabin is mainly heated by a gas fireplace (looks like a wood stove, but does not need wood). We recommend bringing layers and slippers in the winter while the cabin warms up. Like most cabins in the area, there is no AC, but we provide room fans. Cell reception is unreliable throughout the Sierras except for Verizon, however at the cabin, WiFi calls are available through all carriers --to make calls, enable the setting on your cell phone. The cabin comfortably fits 4 people, with 1 bedroom, a sleeping loft (no door) and 1.5 bathrooms. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and the loft has a full-size mattress and its own half bathroom. We have a flat parking pad instead of a driveway, which makes things easier in the winter months. The rental rate covers a professional cleaning fee and linens and towels!

Comfortable, stylish A-Frame
Fantastic spot for a cozy mountain getaway. Keep warm with the charming gas stove while sipping wine and doing a jigsaw puzzle. Perfect weekend of unplugging and relaxing, surrounded by natural beauty. Fall asleep listening to the rain on the roof and wake up with a hot cup of French press coffee from the local roasters. Lots of delicious food options in town with local wineries, distilleries and local hikes and caverns too.

Our experience at Little Arnold A-frame was great! There was a small hiccup with cleanups when we checked in, but Andria was really quick to respond and she had her cleaner show up right away to take care of things - we really appreciated the fast turnaround on a Saturday night. The place itself was really homey and cozy, and the neighbors are also super friendly. It also had everything that we needed to enjoy the stay. There are a few great hikes around the area, would recommend browsing through the nice little guide that Andria put together for her guests to pick and choose. Would definitely stay here again if we're ever in the area!

The a-frame is so cute and cozy! We were 4 people and fit quite comfortably. It’s the perfect mix of being out in wilderness while still being kind of close to civilization. Andria is a great host, we had an issue with one of the bathrooms and she was able to get someone there quickly. The town is quite nice, we went to some places and everyone was kind. Would def recommend!

We loved our stay at the A-frame! It was the perfect spot for a long weekend getaway. The location is perfect for all sorts of exploring, and the cabin itself is fully stocked with everything you could need.

The A-Frame was very nice. It was a shame we were only there for a weekend since we could only utilize a small bit of what was available. It was really convenient having access to the Arnold Rim Trail right behind the property though.
