Welcome to Skylight Retreat, a sanctuary for writing, reading and creativity. Nestled in Arnold, California, the Retreat is a fully furnished house and studio. The Retreat is set in a quiet neighborhood. Big Trees State Park is a five miles up the road, while a coffeeshop and supermarket are within walking distance. Arnold sits at the edge of Stanislaus National Forest and is surrounded by hiking trails, including the nearby, easy-to-moderate 10.4 mile Arnold Rim Trail. A small lake (White Pines) and numerous ponds are also in town. Highway 4 is bordered by Carson-Iceberg Wilderness Area on the south and Mokelumne Wilderness Area on the north.

The house has two full baths, two bedrooms, a sleeper sofa, and a full kitchen. Wireless access and a landline phone are available. (There is no television). Washer, dryer and dishwasher to clean up!

We work hard to make Skylight Retreat environmentally-friendly. We provide carbon offsets for guest travel (no extra charge), recycle waste, use low-watt compact fluorescent bulbs, have low-flow showers and toilets, and the buildings are thoroughly insulated to the fullest extent. We use green cleaning products. Please help by turning down heat and turning lights off when you leave. We also provide equipment for local activities like hiking, snowshoeing, and more!

Rates start at $125/night, for two person occupancy. Weekends are $150/night. Work exchanges are available. Contact us for more information: info@SkylightRetreat.com
