Yes, even Big Dogs are welcomed at this air conditioned Blue Lake Springs cabin in Arnold, CA! No Dog Fee
Welcome to Big Dog Retreat in located in the Blue Lake Springs neighborhood in the town of Arnold! We love the beauty of this area and wanted to share our cabin with guests when we aren't staying here.

Why did we name our cabin Big Dog Retreat? Well in a nutshell, we have big dogs that typically weigh over 100 pounds each. We found traveling with large breed dogs can present some challenges because even some dog-friendly venues sometimes restrict size limits.

Our cabin is a place where families and their dogs can relax. We strive to create and maintain a clean, comfortable environment for others to enjoy this beautiful area.

Big Dog has a large open floor plan, with a wall of windows to let the outdoors in, you can enjoy the spacious great room, fully equipped kitchen and dining area all with a view of the pines. Stay cozy in the winter with central forced air heat and a wood stove, cool down in the summer with air conditioning (a rare find in Arnold) and ceiling fans in all rooms to ensure your comfort.

The extra large gated deck lends itself well to a BBQ bash, a glass of wine or for just lounging around and soaking up those rays! Enjoy the outdoors with a game of horseshoes or retire to the loft for a rousing game of billiards, poker or family game night!

Even parking is laid back at Big Dog retreat; the lot is level!

Free High-Speed Cable Internet with WiFi

Two flat panel TV’s and two blu-ray dvd players.
