We had a truly wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The comfortable living area with gorgeous views of the trees fostered high quality family time. Cozy beds, great kitchen, nice deck. We enjoyed the convenience to Bear Valley ski resort for fun in the snow. It is difficult to find a home of this caliber in the area, we will be back for sure. Thanks Hillary!

The house is impeccable and oh so beautiful. It’s a nice open floor plan and every room in the house is fully stocked with all the essentials. Kids had a great time and enjoyed the house as well. Each and every item in the house is high end including the linens and towels etc. The house is very clean and we loved the fact that the owner was very responsive to my texts and always available to answer any questions. If we had to visit Arnold again, I would definitely come back to this place and re book it. I’ve stayed in a lot of homes and this one is definitely one of my best experiences.

This house is beautiful, has fabulous wooded views and is very well appointed for large groups. There is tons of relaxing space for everyone to spread out and be comfortable, a huge kitchen with plenty of room for several prep stations, an awesome Sonos arrangement to keep the tunes going and the moods up. One invaluable amenity is the car charger in the garage! It was a lifesaver for us as there are very few and far between options otherwise. Hillary was super quick with responses leading up to our stay as well as while we were there. We enjoyed a terrific weekend of grillin' and chillin' with our friends and highly recommend the experience and the location!

Hillary has created a very beautiful home and is an extremely professional host. She responded immediately, was super friendly and was helpful when we needed it. The house is an amazing ski cabin and has all the nice touches. The kitchen is stocked (she has mustard seed and all other spices in the cabinet). We will return for sure.

Wonderful place to stay!!

Chesa Madrisa is wonderful!! The owners pay a lot of attention to detail. To start – it’s great to have a garage to park in, store our snow equipment, swim gear, or anything as it is so convenient. The cabin is a beautiful open spacious two story. The living area allowed our family to interact as a group but also slip to the other side of the big fireplace for quiet reading time. The kitchen, which has everything to make a big family meal, oversees the living and dining so everyone was included in the festivities. The bedrooms are spacious and great to have a private bathroom in each. Love the Scandinavian bells!! We would not hesitate to come back to this home in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous cabin with everything you could possibly need. This was my family's second visit to Chesa Madrisa and we are already planning our next trip. The cabin has a fully stocked kitchen (top of the line appliances, no less), a closet full of children's toys, comfortable beds with beautiful linens, and so much more. The cabin is extremely clean and well-cared for. The layout is exceptional and inviting. We had our 8-month old with us and found we didn't need to bring much of our baby's items since the cabin had nearly everything we could need; from a portable crib to tons of toys, we were set! Truly, save yourself the time and book this place if you're looking for an exceptional stay in a beautiful area.

Can't wait to come back

My family (6 adults, two toddlers and one dog) stayed here for a weekend in July. The home lived up to all our expectations and more. The owners went above and beyond, even with the tiniest of details…the beds were super comfortable, the towels were high quality, there were tons of toys and equipment for kids and the house was impeccably clean. Hillary was also a great host, she was very responsive when we had questions about the house. We’ve rented several vacation homes over the years and Chesa Madrisa tops the list. You could really unpack your stuff and feel at home. The surrounding area was filled with tons of things to do. We visited Big Trees, went swimming in White Plains lake, fished at New Melones and visited the cute little towns of Murphys and Columbia. We’re already thinking of booking the house for a trip in the wintertime.

We've stayed at many vacation rentals in the Arnold area, but this one is a total gem & step above the others. It was spacious & our family of 6 was very comfortable. It really felt like a home away from home, and had a lot of nice extras from cell phone chargers to pool towels. Free use of the neighborhood pool was a definite perk & my kids had a blast. We explored Big Trees State Park, which is practically next door. We also spent time in Sonora & Murphys, and went up to Lake Alpine. The Chesa Madrisa was a great home base and we can't wait to go back!
