Overview

The Dean Way Chalet is a large and inviting cabin with three spacious levels in which you can spread out and enjoy. The chalet is set smack in the middle of the Sierras, and is surrounded by beautiful big trees all year round! The cabin is located in Blue Lake Springs in Arnold, California, and is waiting for you and your friends and family! Book direct with the owner and save on expensive service fees imposed by Vrbo and other third-party booking platforms!

The chalet has 4 bedrooms, PLUS a loft, PLUS a full lower level with rec room, sleeper sofa, and ping pong room! You can comfortably sleep 12-13 bodies in beds!

Bear Valley ski resort is only 25 minutes away from the cabin! In both winter and summer, it's a fabulous, family-friendly alternative to busy Tahoe resorts, and a MUCH easier drive! Outside this special cabin, in summer you are steps away from two lakes with beaches, as well as access to all the fabulous recreation that Blue Lake Springs has to offer. Tennis, basketball, swimming pools, shuffleboard, organized kids' activities, bingo nights, outdoor movies, playground, volleyball, Snowflake Lodge Restaurant, and more!* Not to mention nearby Calaveras Big Trees State Park and numerous golf courses. In winter there is snow all around the cabin and numerous sno-parks, cross country skiing trails, and of course, Bear Valley!

Of course, you don't have to leave the chalet at all to have a wonderful vacation in the mountains. The possibilities are endless -- you can enjoy a barbeque on the spacious deck and admire the tall trees surrounding the cabin, you can play in the snow all around the cabin during winter (sleds are provided), you can make a fire and play games inside (puzzles, games, and firewood are provided too), or you can swing on the authentic chair lift swing hanging from the deck. Our guests tell us that simply hanging out at the cabin is always a highlight of their vacations!

*As of June 2020, Blue Lake Springs recreation amenities including the two very local lakes and the pool are not available to renters. We are hoping that this changes over the course of the summer, but cannot make any guarantees. There are other wonderful lakes in the area to enjoy, such as White Pines, Utica, Spicer and Lake Alpine.

We are two families from the Bay Area who own this vacation rental together. We have owned the cabin since 2007, and we have spent every year making improvements and updating things so that our guests have great experiences. We also enjoy the cabin with our (5 total) children when it is not rented out. There is so much to do in Arnold, and our cabin makes for an easy, special getaway. The kids love the ping pong and in winter, the sledding right outside. In summer, we spend a lot of time floating on the lakes!
