SWITZERLAND IN CALIFORNIA. That is how beautiful Lake Arrowhead, nestled into the alpine mountains of Southern California, is often described. Surrounded by pine trees and with one of the best views of private Lake Arrowhead, the “Lake House” (as it is officially named) presents the ideal relaxation opportunity for those looking to truly get away from it all.
Recently remodeled from top to bottom by an internationally renowned architect, this four bedroom, 2 bathroom house is located on the shore of one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in North America. It is exactly what you would imagine a lake house should be. With a touch of the “Ralph Lauren” vibe and old world charm, you’ll never know you just a short hour and forty minutes from the big city of Los Angeles.
It’s no accident that Lake Arrowhead is the getaway of choice for Southern Californians and vacationers from around the word.

About the owner: My husband and I have owned 'THE LAKE HOUSE' for over 29 years. Our children were young when we bought the house and they have so many wonderful memories of time spent there. Our children are grown, have children of their own and have moved away. We spend most of our time in NYC and San Francisco where our children now live. While we would never so much as think about selling The Lake House, we are happy to share this magical spot with other families.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Arrowhead: We love pine trees, mountains, crystal clear lakes and the four seasons. We found all we were looking for when we bought our Lake House 28 years ago (it seems like yesterday.) It is so much like Switzerland in its beauty. Our home is right on the water and the views are amazing from every room, bringing the unique peace and quiet of another time into each room in the house. The drive to Lake Arrowhead from Los Angeles is only 1 1/2 hours - traffic permitting. For years, we’ve been able to spend most weekends at The Lake House giving our family the best of both Los Angeles and Lake Arrowhead as well as many priceless memories.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our Lake House has easy access from the road and is just steps away from the Lake Arrowhead. There you will find our private dock & boat with a sandy beach near by. The house is nestled in pine trees away from everything. It is so very quiet during the week as well as most weekends. It is a perfect hideaway for a romantic getaway as well as family fun-filled holiday. While we love taking our friends to the Lake House (sometimes never even leaving the property all week-end) you will find that it is the perfect escape when you just want to get away by yourself to repair, relax and ‘find’ yourself. In addition to the unique bedrooms (each one done with its own personality) and the open and comfortable living areas, you’ll find cooking with friends to be the best in our open, gourmet kitchen. To that end, you will find one of the finest grocery stores in California just 10 minutes away in Blue Jay. For anything else you need or want, Lake Arrowhead Village is a 5 minute drive away. The Village is known for its discount shopping, restaurants, and a 5 star spa & gym at The Lake Arrowhead Resort Hotel. If you’re in the mood for a walk, there is path just steps down from our Lake House that will take you for a beautiful 30 minute walk by the lake to the Village where you can rent a boat with a water ski instructor, take a ride around the lake on the Arrowhead Queen. There is snow skiing and sledding only 20 minutes from the home.
