A Simply Lovely Cabin Set In A Glen Of Tranquility.

This cute vintage 1950s mountain home is set into a hillside that slopes toward the setting sun. From the driveway parking area there are 20 steps to the house level and then another 8 to the front porch. The living room is fairly large and has a dining table and chairs by the window and a fireplace, fold-out sofa, and chairs to the right. The kitchen with stove, refrigerator, washer/dryer and sink has a door that leads out to a round cement patio where you can barbecue and entertain outside under the trees. The main bedroom has a queen size bed, closet and dresser, the smaller bedroom has a daybed with trundle, dresser and closet. The smaller bedroom also has a door that leads out to a beautiful deck in the forested hillside. The driveway provides off-street parking for three cars.

Lake Gregory is just a mile away with all that it offers (swimming, kayaking, boating, hiking, fishing) as well as the quaint town with its shops. Lake Arrowhead is 10 minutes up the hill, Snow Valley is about a half hour away, and Big Bear Lake a little past that. The cabin offers all the comforts of home including wifi and a large flat screen TV. The kitchen, decks, and barbecue make entertaining easy in this serene and enchanting setting.

About Randy Rivera

I'm a retired high school teacher and musician/entertainer. I live in Los Angeles where I manage some rentals I own and enjoy my family and making music with a few friends. I bought this cabin just last month and am hoping to have it as an escape for myself and to share it with others who want to enjoy some time in Shangri La. I love nature, weather, dark skies full of stars, and time shared with good friends.

Randy Rivera purchased this Cabin in 2017

Why Randy Rivera chose Crestline

I've always loved nature and wanted to have a place to escape the rat race, lights, and traffic of the city. As a child my mom took my siblings and me to a cabin at Lake Gregory, and later my best friend lived in a cabin here and I visited him often, so I have some familiarity with the area. It is close enough to home to make it accessible and still have the sense of being away from it all. Some snow, but not too much. This particular place appealed to me because of the simple natural beauty of its setting. It's close to town, but off the beaten path. The street is extremely quiet and the house sits above the street beside a wild canyon. The decks offer lots of outside areas to relax, and the house is comfortable and simple. Not too big to maintain but big enough to entertain a few friends.

What makes this Cabin unique

There are many cute places in Crestline, but most seem pretty close together. This property feels like it's in its own setting. The hillside decks and views have an enchanting ambiance, yet the town is just two minutes away.

                                                          Mary P.

                                                          Well kept, clean, in the middle of it all but still secluded. Randy was lovely and very easy to deal with. We lounged, took walks around Lake Gregory, BBQ and just chilled. It was a perfect get away spot. Great internet service too which was nice. Well stocked kitchen. Easy drive to Blue Jay, Twin Peaks and Arrowhead. You really don’t need to go far though. Goodwins Market was close and had everything and more. Roadhouse pizza was yummy as was Toni’s Mexican.

                                                          Great little mountain home

                                                          Brandi G.

                                                          This was a wonderful little cabin in a somewhat secluded area of Crestline. It was quaint, clean, and felt like home while we waited for our own home to be ready for move-in. Randy was a perfect host. He was easy to work with, friendly, and very attentive to emails and fast to reply.

                                                          Perfect clean secluded getaway

                                                          We loved the cabin. It was clean and fresh and comfortable. Randy was great and easy to communicate with. Overall, a perfect weekend and we would definitely book again.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you Melissa. The feeling is certainly mutual. You were friendly, communicative, and left the place so I had extra time after I checked the place. Look forward to your return sometime. Again, thank you for the positive review. Randy

                                                          Jessica R.Commerce

                                                          We are city folk and on top of that I work retail, so I really enjoyed my stay at this cabin. I loved taking in fresh air on the porch overlooking green trees. The cabin is small and inviting perfect for my little family of 3. We had everything we needed. We cooked dinner and breakfast there with no problem. Looking forward to renting it out again in the future.

                                                          Lovely stay!

                                                          Yvette L.

                                                          The home was spotless! It’s in a great location, close to town and trails but not too close. The heart rock trail was close and a pleasant walk. The weather was beautiful but chilly. The house warmed up nicely. The kitchen was well stocked. The entire process for renting was easy and we would stay again. Thank you for sharing your home!
