Reindeer Cottage is a 3-bedroom Wrightwood Cabin Rental near Mountain High, Navitat, and walking distance to hiking, sledding, and the village shops/restaurants. This cabin is over 80 years old but has been remodeled to meet modern needs while still retaining its old charms.
Two bedrooms on the main level include one queen bed room and one room with 2 twin beds, which can be pushed together and made into a King bed (albeit a little shorter than normal King beds). The loft bedroom includes a double bed and 2 twin beds. Altogether the cabin can sleep up to 8.
The one bathroom is small but adorable, with a custom spa-like shower complete with travertine tile, river pebble floor, and rain shower head. View of mountain from the shower. The sink is a custom-made concrete bowl vessel sink mounted on a piece of a giant fir tree trunk that was cut down locally.
The living room features a real reindeer (taxidermy head mount), wood-burning fireplace, knotty pine plank walls, vaulted ceiling, wagon wheel chandelier, flat screen TV, Dish Satellite channels and wifi.
The retro kitchen includes stove/oven, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, pots & pans & dishes & utensils, etc. Does not have a dishwasher or disposal due to the age of the cabin. Next to the kitchen, the wooden sunroom serves as a dining area, with custom made wood table (made from the cabin's old front door and the weathered wood of the old back deck) and seating for 8.
There's a luxurious infrared dry-heat sauna in the backyard that even has a radio/CD player. It's perfect for 2 people.
Sleds available for use. All linens provided.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are a family of four with one son who's a competitive snowboarder and one who's a competitive skier. We bought our first cabin in Wrightwood to use for ourselves on weekends, but fell in love with Wrightwood and bought a house up here to live in full time. We've had so much fun renting out that first property (Little Pines cabin & the Hideaway) to others seeking great travel memories that we decided to buy another, Reindeer Cottage.
Why the Owner Chose Wrightwood: This cabin was in rough shape when we first saw it on the market. In fact, it sat without a buyer for months, scaring off potential bidders with its interior water damage, thick dust, 1970s decor, and a huge back deck too treacherous to step a foot on. We decided to take a chance on it, and we're glad we did! It's been fun to see the diamond in the rough shine through.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: When we bought our other property (Little Pines) we picked it because it was contemporary on the inside, despite looking like a cabin on the outside. What we love about Reindeer Cottage is how much of a vintage old cabin it actually is -- it's fun to have both ends of the spectrum. We've tried to keep and even reinstall some of the old era details, while modernizing in other spots, such as creating a new spa-like shower with river pebbles, travertine, and rainfall shower head. Our favorite features include the mountain views, the sunroom, the large-plank knotty pine throughout, and the reindeer head mount we found secondhand that now graces the space above the fireplace. We have lots of plans for continual improvements, so come back often to see the progress! Someday soon we'll turn the garage into a game room, add horseshoes to the side yard, hang an old Mountain High ski lift bench to the front porch as a swing, and install an outdoor shower in the backyard, plus much more. If only we had more time to work on these projects!
