We loved this place! Our family (2 adults, 2 kids under 4 years old, and a dog) had a perfect amount of space for our 4-night stay. The proximity of the cabin was down the road from Calaveras Big Trees State Park, the river, lake in Arnold, and the market. It was a great way to unplug from the busy Silicon Valley lifestyle that we've been living with. A few notes: - We were there in the summer heatwave and had smoke from the Redding and Yosemite fires, so we wish there was another box fan or two in addition to the one that was there. There are ceiling fans in each room. - The BBQ needs a little work since one of the ignition switches is out, but lighting it with a match was easy enough (and there are matches there). - Bear-proofing the trash can would be helpful, since we picked-up garbage 2 of the nights after a visit from the residential bear (harmless, and fun to see!). - Kitchen amenities are adequate and Dollar General and the Big Trees Market had the 2 items that we wanted and purchased, and then we left for the next renters. - We brought most of our groceries, and ate at the Mexican food restaurant in town one night, and grabbed a shake at the burger joint across the street. - Close to the house, our maps took us to a road that was closed for repair, so it was 20 minutes of back-tracking to the alternate route, so check with the owner to see what route to take in. Overall, it's a great place to stay and we'll stay again! It was perfect for our getaway, and we loved the peace and quiet.
