Our stay was great, and the property lived up to our expectations. Comfortable, convenient, and lots of games and activities for kids were available. The only draw back was that the cleaning crew missed pizza and pizza boxes in the oven from the previous guests.

Totally kid friendly, clean, everything needed and nothing cheap or mismatched. Location was great. Pleasantly surprised🌞👑👑

I loved staying there it was so relaxing and clean.

The cabin was really cute and cozy. I loved the layout. The loft was really hot so we didn’t hang out up there. They had a nice deck to hang out and BBQ that looked out at the meadow and trees. The only downfall was the road was across the meadow and you could hear the cars zoom by. Other than that the cabin was lovely and your close to the market and not too far from lakes.

Stayed here with another couple and our two children. We had a great time. The home was very clean and perfect for us, especially the collection of Disney VHS movies! :)

The location was convenient for our families to meet. You feel like you are in the forest and yet close to Big Trees and Murphys.

Myself and 7 lifelong friends stayed the weekend and loved this place. Awesome meadow right out your back porch and back away from the view of the town. Perfect for groups, families, or just a bunch of friends looking for a good time. Awesome place!

Perfectly cozy cabin! All the comforts of home... plenty of towels, bedding, dishes, etc. My favorite features are the wood stove and big windows. Perfect for a relaxing weekend! I will definitely be planning another stay soon!

This cabin is nice and big. It has everything you need cookware, blankets, games, towels and lots of other stuff. It would be nice if they would have a high chair, portable crib for guests with small kids.

Bears Meadow is a cute and warm home in Arnold, CA. The personality of the homeowners really shine through. You can tell that they have been coming to this property for many years.

Perfect for a family/intergenerational get-together. Two bedrooms on the ground floor, with an open loft upstairs set up for additional guests or for kids to have their own dedicated recreational area. It was too rainy to use the deck, but it opened out to a big field and would be perfect for warmer weather. The home is a 10 minute drive away from Big Trees.

random notes: There are 1-2 steps up to the front door. The mattresses are very firm. Both a Keurig and drip coffeemaker are provided. Tap water tastes great. Ample VHS collection. Cozy wood-burning fireplace. Lots and LOTs of bears -- I was discovering them all the way to the end of my visit!
