Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Rent my beautiful little house nestled in the woods of Lake Arrowhead. It has cathedral ceilings and dormer windows of painted glass, two decks that jut out into the woods, a full kitchen, a wood burning fireplace,a terraced garden and a peaceful romantic quality hard to describe. From the back deck you can hear the stream that runs at the bottom of the hill. Fully furnished, with one bedroom with its queen sized bed, a loft sleeping area with a twin sized bed, and a very comfortable queen sized air mattress that can be easily blown up and placed anywhere you want.

Rekindle your romance, play in the snow with your sunshine drenched LA children, go antiquing with your friends, retreat with your co workers, go for a girls go wild weekend or just relax by yourself.

Lake Arrowhead is a perfect get-away. It's a place to go to be alone and finish that novel you've been working on or to be together to rekindle your romance. Kid friendly, it's an hour and a half out of LA and minutes away from cross country and downhill skiing, sledding, snowman building and ice skating in the winter and swimming, boating in nearby Lake Gregory, picnicking, hiking, exploring etc. in the summer. Alas, Lake Arrowhead is a private lake so unless you take a cruise on the sightseeing boat or take a waterskiing lesson there is no boating on Lake Arrowhead. The fall finds the leaves are a stunning riot of color. You can shop for antiques and mosey around any time of the year. In the village there are a wide variety of restaurants, rustic gift and home shops, upscale outlet stores, a little kiddie-land type area with rides for the little ones, a children's museum, a video game palace, a pilates studio and the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa.

About Ray Richmond or Jill Holden

I'm a proud public school theatre teacher and actress in Los Angeles. After many false starts I finally found the man of my dreams and was married on 10/10/10. Crazy. We have four kids between us and they are each unique and kooky in their own ways. I do theatre and write and politically organize whenever I can. It's a darn good life.

Ray Richmond or Jill Holden purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Ray Richmond or Jill Holden chose Lake Arrowhead

Having spent my life in the biggest of cities, LA, Chi Town and New York, I yearned for the rural. And I missed winter! After spending a few weekends here on theatre company retreats I was hooked. So I began to go to Lake Arrowhead for weekends and slowly fell in love with its romantic charm. This is the only house I own and I adore it. The mountains are beautiful. I can stand on my back deck, a glass of wine in hand, the fire roaring, and see thousands of stars as I hear the stream gurgle below me. Fantastic. And I don't think my new marriage would have happened with this particular getaway. You'll see. Romance always brews. Then there's the skiing and the spa and the mountain hikes. And the views from 6000 aren't so shabby either. The people are friendly but not intrusive. All in all, it a perfect place.

What makes this cabin unique

The village of Lake Arrowhead, with its restaurants and shops, live music, boat rides and waterskiing, spa and movies houses is only five minutes away. Yet you feel, when at the cabin, that you are miles away from civilization. My dog adores the place. He can run free and seems to think that is the coolest thing ever. If you are bringing kids to play in the snow, there will be plenty right at my house or you can go tubing or sledding (I've got sleds) at a place of business about ten minutes away.

Wonderful place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a true mountain cabin - small, simple, and very inviting. The downstairs bedroom is ideal for two and there is a mini loft upstairs not much larger than a twin bed. The kitchen was stocked with all the basic tools we needed to prepare simple meals and the owner has a very large DVD library. This cabin is situated near the end of the road - I'm not sure if even one car drove by the whole time we were there. Expect a 1920s cabin and you will not be disappointed. Expect a modern luxury mountain home with all the latest comforts/finishes and you will be. BYO firewood/hatchet if you'd like to use the wood burning stove (standard gas appliances for heat/cooking are available). Owner was great to work with. We would definitely stay here again if we don't end up buying a place like this of our own!

Fold out bed in living room was broken. Loft up top way too small. Could been cleaner on check-

  • 3 of 5

The place was very quaint with good history. The fold out bed was very small and broken. The loft way too small. Really should advertise as 2 person. Could have been cleaner on check-in. The pipe froze during our stay which filled up tub with dirty water but not making an issue of it. Record snow fall that weekend

Owner's Response: This renter identified as a party of two. If she had said on her rental request that there were more in her party, I would have explained that my cabin has only one actual bedroom. It also features a sleeping loft with a twin bed that is suitable for a child or a teen but is too small for an adult and not appropriate for a toddler. I further would have noted that the fold-out bed isn’t specifically designed for luxuriant slumber. I have a superb blow-up mattress that makes an excellent companion on the living room floor. As for the pipe, it did indeed freeze for the first time this winter. It’s since been repaired and will not freeze again. I was as responsible as I could conceivably be in this case. I was in immediate contact with the renter when problems arose. It was Christmas day which made it difficult to get plumbing help right away but I got my handyman there quickly to thaw things out - AND I bought the family passes for the Lake Arrowhead Resort health club and spa so that they could bathe, shower and enjoy the spa to offset the inconvenience. Cleanliness is a top priority, and I apologize it wasn’t spotless in this case. It’s something of which I am extremely vigilant and has never before been cited. But I must admit that I was surprised to receive this review as the renter appeared satisfied at the time with my efforts to make her vacation special despite some unforeseen circumstances.

My experience for second stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd stay here. We really enjoy the cozy cabin in the woods. I gave it 4 stars because it is perfect but if it was located closer to shops and Resturants I would give it 5 stars.

There is a major ski resort about 15 minutes away called Snow Valley in Running Springs. Within 30 minutes of my house, up the mountain is Big Bear and in Big Bear there is fishing, swimming and boats for rent. Also about 15 minutes away is Lake Gregory at which there is boating of all sorts and fishing. Lake Arrowhead itself is a private lake with no boat rentals. In Lake Arrowhead which is about 5 minutes away there is a major spa and five star restaurant.
