Basic accomodations for spur of the moment vacation trip to Calaveras State Park in Arnold Ca. Stayed 4 days and found our room to be very clean and quiet. Very good Italian restaurant (Sarafinas) within walking distance and very close to the Sequioas trees in the state park (about 3 miles).

We've stayed here two times within the last year and will be back for a third stay this summer. It has everything we need - comfortable bed, free internet, coffee maker, microwave, TV, refrigerator and most important, friendly courteous staff. We liked to make coffee in the morning then sit outside on the porch to enjoy the quiet morning. Snowshoe... More

The room was basic, but there were nice touches, like... More

Needed a quick place to stay since crossing over the 4 was still closed due to snow. The innkeeper Coleen was very sweet. Showed the girl an I two options for rooms. We picked queen bed with fireplace. Toasty!! Very clean, neat rooms. Bed was comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed one night last weekend, and we really enjoyed the little room with a fireplace. The decor was modern-meets-rustic, and we had what we needed for the stay. My complaints are that the bed was pretty hard and the walls are pretty thin noise-wise. But I rarely like hotel beds anyway, and it wasn't the Lodge's... More

We stayed for 8 days during a family visit in the area. Great place to stay, comfortable, good beds, clean, convenient, just what we needed. Coleen went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for us.

Nothing makes us happier than guests who are pleased with their stay with us, and who enjoy the area and all it has to offer as you have. Summer is great, but we hope you'll give Spring Fall, and Winter a try! Fantastic describes them all! Thank You, we're so glad you had a great time. Innkeeper, Arnold Timberline Lodge More
