Bedrooms 5
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Two self-contained Lodges in a very private setting with gated access

Luxury accommodations in a private gated compound with two lodge buildings on 40 acres overlooking Lake Arrowhead. Just right for family gatherings (up to 22 people), reunions, workshops, and corporate retreats. The posted nightly rental rate includes both the Ponderosa and Sugar Pine Lodges ensuring maximum privacy for our guests. However, in off-season we occasionally rent a single lodge at a reduced rate.

Our outdoor amphitheater is ideal for weddings and other special events, but not included in the lodge rental. Please contact us for separate booking information. If our guests are renting both lodges and require a little extra space, for an extra charge, there is a one-room apartment with a queen bed and a double futon, with a half bath. Otherwise, our outdoor spaces (walking/hiking trails) with views of the lake, are available for use by our guests.

Ponderosa Lodge: The larger of the two buildings (sleeps 13) contains a Master suite with an attached full- bathroom, and a queen bed on the main floor. Also on the main floor is a bunk room that has one twin and three bunks (six beds). Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. One has a queen bed, and one has two twin beds. On the main lodge floor there is a gender-neutral bathroom with two private toilets and two private showers. The Chef's kitchen is fully equipped with cooking equipment, two Viking ranges, a microwave, dishwasher and a 48" refrigerator with an ice maker and filtered water dispenser. Of course, all glassware, plates and utensils are provided. Professional chefs love this kitchen. The living room contains a large fireplace (firewood is provided), flat-screen TV, (cable and DVD player), i-Pod docks and Wi-Fi. Outdoor living spaces include a large wrap-around deck with luxury seating, 3 outdoor dining tables, an additional fireplace, a large natural-gas grill (gas provided), serving bar and an additional restroom, with two private stalls and a private shower.

Sugar Pine Lodge: This is a real log building (sleeps 9) consisting of three rooms; great-room, kitchen/dinette, and gender-neutral bathroom with two private stalls, a private shower and two sinks. The great-room has a fireplace and seating area, with a flat-screen TV (cable and DVD), Wi-Fi, and i-Pod dock. Next to the seating area is a unique bunk bed with a double mattress below with standard twin bunk above. In the center of the room there is a large round dining table that seats 8 people. At the far end, there are three 3 bunks (sleeps 6), which can be screened from the great-room with a large privacy curtain. The kitchen/dinette is fully stocked. The outdoor patio has a fantastic view of the lake, and contains a gas grill, and outdoor fireplace, covered eating area and luxury seating.

Apartment: (at extra charge). The apartment is located adjacent to a covered parking area, below the Ponderosa Lodge with a separate entrance. It is a one-room apartment with a queen bed and a double futon/couch, with a fireplace (gas, not wood burning) and its own a half bath.

We invite you to experience "rustic luxury", with four-star accommodations in a remarkable forest setting that is secluded and private yet very close to other resort amenities.

Twin Peaks

An Adirondack experience in the Mountains of Southern California

  • 5 of 5

Like looking through the pages of a Ralph Kylloe book, this beautiful property is reminiscent of the Great Camps of the Adirondacks.

So many rentals are located in areas where the neighbors can look in your windows. NOT this place. With 40 acres of private woods, we've wandered the property without seeing another person, played in the full sized Tipi, and watched fireworks from the hillside above Lake Arrowhead.

On another visit, we had a Hollywood movie night sitting outside watching a movie that had been filmed in Lake Arrowhead on a 20 ft. inflatable screen.

We know of nothing comparable to this beautiful property. Whether you are looking for a private destination

getaway, a family reunion or peaceful inspiration, Pine Mountain Camp won't disappoint.

BONUS: This place is clean, clean, clean. Inside and out.

Perfect Easter!

  • 5 of 5

I'm an American living in Sweden for many years. I rented Pine Mountain for a family reunion and was amazed. There are so many gorgeous, thoughtful details in the design, decor and placement in the forest that I was amazed. Our family had a fantastic time. There were spaces to talk, walk, read, relax, dance, play music and just enjoy ourselves thoroughly. The kitchen was so big we could all be there either cooking or coaching/tasting. We will be back! This was a perfect Easter holiday weekend!

Glamorous Camping Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Pine Mountain Camp. We couldn’t have picked a more beautiful place than Pine Mountain Lake Arrowhead for our family reunion. There were 26 of us ranging in age from 3 months to 70 and it was fun and relaxing for all. The fabulous kitchen with two professional ranges made it a delight for our “want to be chefs” to prepare three meals a day for a week. The decks and outdoor fireplace were perfect for gathering, taking in the view and breathing in the clean mountain air. The hiking trails, volleyball and horseshoes all provided the right amount of sport and camaraderie for our family “Olympic games”. We will always hold the Pine Mountain experience in our hearts and hope we will return soon. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing your “glamorous camp experience” with our family.

Pine Mountain Camp has been an extraordinary experience for us. The events wev'e attended there have been in a setting that takes us back in time, where the charm of the buildings and attention to detail in the architecture as well as the furnishings are truly unique and special. The perfect getaway for family and friends to enjoy for special occasions.
