Friendly people at front desk. They will help to direct you to where every your are going. They also tell you lots of places to visit while here. Easy drive to the Big Trees State park so you can see lots of the giant old trees. About a 2 1/2 hour drive to Yosemite.

Always love our duplex cabin, landscaping is so beautiful, although the little stream didn't run as much. Best hikes ever in Calaveras Big Trees, saw deer on the North Grove trail. Weather was so pleasant. Went to Angel's camp for their Salute to Veterans on 4th in afternoon and heard the famous Off Brothers, very good. Came back to Arnold... More

We decided to rent a condo for a couple of days to join friends who were staying for an entire week at this very nice resort. The staff was very accommodating, putting us in a unit next to the one they were staying in; which was very convenient because we dined together both evenings. The configuration of our unit (#24)...

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
