                                                        stephanie g.

                                                        This house has so much character and was perfect for a relaxing vacation. Had everything we need for a few days stay away from the city in the fresh air! The village is a short drive away. We took the kids on the ferry boat ride and ate in the restaurants and did some shopping.

                                                        The house was nice, cozy and charming! We loved staying there and the neighborhood was great.

                                                        I loved the details inside this vintage charmer and the owner could have not been nicer!

                                                        Wonderful property

                                                        michael k.La Habra Heights, CA

                                                        My family of 6 stayed at this charming vintage home during October. Very private location. It has a spacious family room with a grand fire place. Also, a very large dining area and 2 levels of outdoor patio space. It is a very short walk to the ALA hiking trail. We definitely plan to return.

                                                        The property was not well kept and had alot of bugs and spiders inside. All the windows had spider.

                                                        There was NO access to the lake, so, purchasing a fishing license was a waste of money. I would not recommend or rent this place again. The pictures were deceptive. Finising my statement up top, there were spider webs all over the windows.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        I am so surprised and confused by this review as the house is a. 5 minute walk down to the lake access, and the beach pass was provided in the welcome folder for you to enjoy the activities at all 3 private beach clubs.. I also always provide my cell phone to answer any questions. Other guests (including right before and after you ) seem to love the charm and decor of the house and all the other reviews are 5 star. The cleaner I use every time is thorough and excellent , although she did say you left it a mess, especially outside around the BBQ. Denyse

                                                        We had a wonderful stay in the fabulously cozy, comfortable home. It is in a great location- close to the lake and to beaches, yet nestled among the trees. It has 3 levels, with interesting rooms, with wonderfully- appointed rooms. The windows and window seats were glorious. Dennis, the owner, is lovely and easy to communicate with. We will be back!

                                                        Megan G.

                                                        Our family (2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog) had a wonderful weekend in this charming cottage in a lovely area of Lake Arrowhead. The cottage is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and well-appointed (lots of blankets/throws, stocked kitchen, fireplace matches, fluffy towels, etc.). We were there on a snowy weekend, so we really enjoyed the huge fireplace. The ALA trail around the lake is easily accessible from the cottage and we loved taking a daily walk along the lakefront. Denyse was responsive and helpful. Our family would stay here again in a heartbeat. (Would love to come back in the summer, to use the patio/deck!)
