About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3-4, wood-burning stove, deck, sauna, very cute!

THE HIDEAWAY is one of 5 vacation rentals in Wrightwood that we personally own. Check out our other listings as well: Little Pines Cabin, Owls Nook, Chickadee, and Reindeer Cottage.

The Hideaway is a charming and cozy cabin studio featuring a private semi-loft room with double bed, 1 bathroom with large shower stall, living room with futon sofa and flat screen TV with Dish Satellite and wifi, and a fully-equipped kitchenette. The antique woodstove is perfect for cozy fires on chilly nights, the private deck is ideal for sipping wine beneath millions of stars!

The oversized detached garage is shared space with the main cabin house ( and features a 2-person sauna, washer & dryer, mountain bikes, sleds, games, 200+ movies, books, rafts, and extra snow-play gear, all shared with guests in the main house.

Exposed beams, wood and brick walls, bamboo and tile floors. Trendy decor. Kitchenette is small but technologically advanced with a ''Half-time oven'' and a one-burner cooktop stove.

This cozy unit is a perfect hideaway for a couple wanting a romantic weekend in the mountains, an individual wanting a private retreat, a small group of close friends hitting the slopes, or a family traveling with 1-2 kids. It's small but VERY charming! We host many couples for their wedding night since Wrightwood is becoming a popular spot for outdoor weddings.

Available to our guests: $49 MOUNTAIN HIGH 8-hour ski passes, inquire for details.

Combine rentals with the main cabin, VRBO 328738, for a total of 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 living areas, 2 kitchens, multiple decks -- a great way to travel with a larger group, especially for those that want their own space to get away from the pack on occasion (or want a bathroom that they don't have to share).

MEMBERS of Wrightwood Lodging Association, Wrightwood Chamber of Commerce, San Bernardino County licensed/registered vacation rental.

NOTE: The Hideaway received an award in 2013 for being the #1 Most Booked Property Online on the HomeAway/VRBO global network. Thanks for making us #1!

Notes:

RULES ON INSTANT BOOKINGS: if booking less than 24hrs before check-in, we may not be able to accommodate the request due to housekeeping schedule or previously requested early/late check in/out of other guests. Additionally since we list on multiple websites that can have a slight delay in updating calendars, it is possible for instant bookings to be double booked. Your instant booking may be cancelled in these situations but we will do our best to cancel as soon as possible so you can look for another property.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE ON ALL RESERVATIONS:

1) PAYMENT INSTALLMENTS may be available upon request. If you are making an advance booking, we would be happy to set up payments rather than require all of it at booking.

2) Inquire about LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS.

3) CANCELLATIONS must be done 30 days in advance to qualify for a refund, minus $25 processing fee. CHANGES to reservation dates typically also incur a $25 processing fee unless adding nights. If you think there is a possibility you may have to cancel less than 30 days before arrival, we strongly recommend you pay for the HomeAway vacation cancellation insurance. Details will be given to you by HomeAway when you book.

4) BOOKINGS NOT PAID 2wks before arrival cancelled without refund.

5) DEPOSIT refunds are processed within a week of checkout.

6) PET FEE is $30 for weekend stays. If staying more than a few days, a higher fee will be assessed. Additionally, if any pet mess is left in the yard, a cleaning fee will be assessed.

7) CLEANING & LINENS FEE: if you're looking to save money, it is possible to avoid this fee by not having it cleaned before you arrive and by bringing your own sheets, towels, TP, paper towels, and dish towels. Inquire for details.


Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a family of four that loves to travel, especially when it involves skiing and snowboarding. As professors and authors, we have enjoyed using our cabins as a peaceful place to write without distractions. And as avid world travelers, we've filled the cabins with treasures we've brought back from our many journeys.

Why the Owner Chose Wrightwood, CA, USA:
Why the Owner Chose Wrightwood: We chose to buy a cabin in Wrightwood in part for the convenience to Mountain High for skiing and snowboarding, but especially to enjoy this quaint little mountain town and the beautiful natural environment that surrounds it. Cool summers and snowy winters - a perfect mountain getaway from L.A.! After using our cabin we fell so in love with Wrightwood that we moved here full time, which means our cabin is now available year-round for others to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Staying in one of our Wrightwood cabins offers a chance to relax and enjoy quality family time when we're not on the slopes.We spend our time reading, playing board games, going for walks and hikes, and enjoying the sauna.
