"We have enjoyed many vacation rentals thought VRBO, including numerous trips to Lake Arrowhead. This is the fifth property we have rented on Palisades Dr. Like the others, the view on to and across the Lake is fabulous. On this trip we had three couples+. The home is clean, spacious and completely comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped with dish, pots pans and utensils. (It seems rare that we didn't have to buy or improvise something for the kitchen.) We found everything to be perfectly comfortable for a long weekend retreat!
The owner was accessible and attentive.
The furnishings and décor are practical. The owner has avoided the appearance (frequent in second homes) of using cast off furniture from their primary home. They also have avoided the tacky mountain souvenir décor that many owners tend toward. On the other hand, the home does not appear to have been professionally decorated, which can be nice but tends to drive up the rental price.
The stairs from the house up to the street level are daunting; but that is true of most all the properties we've rented on the lake side of Palisades Dr. and this property was not the worst in that regard....just something to be aware of for first timers to lakefront properties on Palisades and some other locations at Lake Arrowhead.
We enjoyed using this home and endorse it with enthusiasm."
