This was a great place to stay with nice amenities and staff. It is very close to Big Trees State Park and about 2 hours through the mountains to Yosemite. The little town of Arnold is quaint and close to Murphys and Angels Camp with a lot of history and vineyards. Our condo was large and very clean. I agree... More

We are a family who travels frequently. We live only a few hours from this location and were looking forward to our stay. Had things worked out differently they could have expected our business each year.

We stayed in Calaveras Condo #14. Everyone has stated these condos need updating but we found it very nice. The beds were out of this world comfortable! Each bedroom upstairs had it's own balcony which was nice. There is a main bathroom upstairs and the bedroom with the king bed had it's own bathroom as well. The king bedroom also... More

We have been here a number of times and it is better than ever. The rebuilding of the clubhouse damaged by a fire and includes the indoor swimming pool, exercise room, pool table area, business center, lobby and family area has made the resort more enjoyable than ever.
