We enjoyed our time in Arnold, The resort is nice and there is a lot to do, the room however is one of the worst time shares that I have ever stayed in. The Kitchen is very small, the hole in the floor to go down stairs in not great if you have little ones. Indoor pool is very nice... More

Small town with great wineries and restaurants in the area. Lots to do anytime of year. Condos are well maintained and very clean with the most comfortable beds anywhere! The staff is also great! Resort activities are fun - especially the pancake breakfast on Monday mornings. The indoor pool, spa, sauna, and workout room are added bonuses.

The accomadations were very clean and spacious. Nice beds, towels, linens. Wonderful location well off of Hwy 4 with a great adjacent sledding hill. Very easy access to the Big Trees State Park, restaurants and grocery store. Best of all: a kind, welcoming and helpful staff. We'll be back again!

Its fun to come here in the winter. There are snow activities available for the kids at the resort and ski packages up the road at Bear Valley or you can stay in by the fire in your unit and just relax. I always like it when it snows at the resort while visiting.
