Overview

Vacation Home1362 Sqft
Skip Tahoe traffic and crowds and get away to the Sierras from the Bay Area in under 3 hours. Bring your electric car too - we have a 220 outlet for EV charging (but bring your own charging cord)! Casa Azul is located off of Highway 4 in in the Blue Lake Springs area of Arnold. Staying in Blue Lake Springs gives you access to 2 private lakes in addition to the Snowflake Lodge and Country Club which has a restaurant, recreation center, pool, and tennis (an extra fee is required).

Casa Azul is a cozy 1970's chalet style cabin with hip vintage charm and modern updates. Located in the popular Blue Lake Springs area of Arnold, guests have access to private lakes and country club amenities. The cabin's prime location is close to shopping, restaurants and local brewery. Outdoor activities abound from hiking the Rim Trail, giant Sequoia trees, the Stanislaus River, and snow play at Bear Valley ski resort. Or simply kick back by the fireplace or enjoy the view on the deck!

Entering the cabin living room you are met by the stone fireplace, soaring windows and sliding doors that go out to a redwood deck overlooking the trees. There is outdoor seating for relaxing and dining, and a propane grill for barbecuing. Or enjoy a nap in the hammock!

The cabin mudroom and laundry area is the perfect spot for your wet snow boots and jackets, or sandy towels and suits from a day at the lake. The laundry area comes equipped with a newer front loading washer and dryer. There is a full bathroom on each level of the house with a toilet, a sink, and a bathtub/shower. Bed linens, blankets, and bath & swim towels are provided.

On the cabin's ground floor there are two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, dresser and closet. The upstairs loft has it's own private deck, king size bed, dresser, & TV sitting area with a small convertible couch for an extra sleeping space. Please keep in mind that the loft while private, is an open space, there is no door to close!

The kitchen has been updated with newer stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, gas range, and microwave. It's stocked with the basics and more - Calphalon cookware, Keurig K-Elite & pods, drip coffeemaker & grinder, electric kettle, toaster, hand mixer, panini press, crockpot, waffle iron, a vintage CorningWare collection, as well as glasses, dishes, utensils, and pantry items. Basic kitchen and bath soaps, laundry soap, toilet paper, and paper towels, are provided.

For those who like to play AND work hard we have an office nook. You will find a desk with a charging station and black & white laser printer located in the great room.

For entertainment, guests will find an array of games and puzzles for kids and adults alike. Please note the cabin has fast internet and devices for streaming media but NO CABLE. There is a portable BOSE blue tooth speaker for music inside or outside! In the living room there's a flat screen television with an Apple TV, a Blue Ray DVD player and small selection of movies. In the upstairs loft there is a flat screen TV with an Xbox One and a small selection of video games.

Renter will have access to the entire house except for "owners closets" and utility areas which will be locked. Guests will be given our number in the event they need help with anything. We will arrange for somebody local who can come by if there is a problem if we are unable to do so ourselves.

Arnold is a great place to begin your adventures! From the cabin, it's less than 2 miles to grocery shopping and roughly 10 minutes to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Murphys, a neighboring Gold Rush era town has a variety of charming shops, restaurants and tasting rooms is about 15 minutes away. Golfers can also head to Murphys and play at the Forest Meadows Golf Course. For snow bunnies, Bear Valley is approximately 30 miles away and offers skiing and snowboarding at it's Ski Resort.
