About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms with 2 queen and 2 full size beds. 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 Max!)

After we were sold out until August, we had taken some time off VRBO. We are back for the end of summer and new fall rates.

Rustic but ready this Creekside Retreat is a mountain oasis in the middle of the Southern California Desert. 7200 feet above the smog and heat, a person can breath fresh air and temps almost never get much above 80 degrees. GVL is less than 30 minutes from Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead. Green Valley Lake offers peace and tranquility with world class 4x4 trails, fine trout fishing, skiing/snowboarding, mountain biking and hiking just minutes away. Walk down to the beach to take a swim, relax by our Barbeque as the creek gurgles past, take in a movie with all the movie channels. Enjoy our hi-speed internet, or just kickback with a book in front of the fireplace. Do you want to get away? This is the place.

About owner/manager

My wife and I own several full time Rentals in the San Bernadino Mtns. This is our first 'weekend' rental. We don't rent this cabin full time because we want to share this place with our family, friends and the general public. This cabin is located in a special mountain oasis

owner/manager purchased this cabin in 2008

Why owner/manager chose Inland Empire

We love the mountains and this area is one of the most beautiful areas in Southern California.

What makes this cabin unique

I love to 4x4, hike, fish and ski and all of these activities are less than 10 minutes away.

Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We discovered Green Valley just a couple of years ago! What a gem. This is our second cabin that we have stayed in. It had all of the basic amenities that are needed plus a little bit more for a little bit less. Chris (the owner) was a joy to work with and delivered all that was promised! The cabin kept us warm, safe and in a great location for getting in and out to explore the beauty of Green Valley Lake! Thanks Chris!

My hubby and I have been here two times. This time we left our kids at home and came for our anniversary. We entered the cabin and had a anniversary card and flowers. Great time again. We will always come back here.

Weekend vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went up to the cabin for the weekend and had a blast! Kids played out side in the snow for hours while my husband and I stayed warn by the fire and watched movies. Down stairs has three beds and its own half bath.. Which was perfect for our three children! The living room and dining room are combined for easy socializing! We look forward to many more vacations at this cabin! A huge thank you to Christopher for always being avalible for our questions.

Family of 6 if you count our dog!

  • 5 of 5

Creekside Retreat at Green Valley Lake was just what we needed. Chris was great with immediate communication from the start with our last minute planning on the same week of our stay. The description and photos are accurate; a rustic cabin at high mountain altitude bringing the best of powdery snow for hours and hours of play. Provided breakfast items were awesome and a neat touch and just a reflection of the owners care into your stay. Sledding for toddlers and preschoolers just out the side of the house, with larger more adventurist slopes within a mile or so which the entire family enjoyed including our dog.

Some of the worlds best 4x4 trails, National Forest just a short walk up the road and the mountain biking is epic. Snow Valley Ski Resort is just 10 minutes away. 30 minutes away in Big Bear where, you will find Golf, Water sports, a Zoo, fine dining, theaters and so much more...
