About Steve

I grew up in New England hence my love of having four seasons. I've always lived near a body of water. I went to 4-H camp in New Hampshire as a kid where I fell in love with cabin life. It's definitely a real cabin and a home. My guests agree it does not look or feel like a rental property. My home is your home! Welcome!

Steve purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Steve chose Lake Arrowhead

It's an original vintage cabin, one of only a handful remaining at Lake Arrowhead. Paradise on earth to me. I searched 2 years to find this special cabin and I LOVE sharing it! The lot is flat which makes access easy in all seasons. Its got the lake and full lake access + beach clubs membership + 60 hiking trails at one end of my road and a grocery store, diner, antique shops at the other end of the road. It's exceptionally quiet and you can park the car for your entire stay and walk to whatever you may need.

What makes this cabin unique

It really is the Complete Lake Arrowhead Experience! Cabin, Spa, Ski Boat, Beach Club Membership + Full Lake Access + Hiking Trail Privileges + hammock in summer and sleds in the winter.

The reviews of past guests say it all. I really enjoy being your host and I take my host responsibilities seriously. I also enjoy being available to you before, during and after your stay to answer questions or help make your stay memorable, happy and as stress free as possible. It's designed and decorated so that every guest has a quiet space to themselves. Then 5 rooms for the entire group to hang out, play games. cook, drink, hot tub or snooze by the fire.

The Perfect Rustic Mountain Cabin Getaway at Lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a mountain cabin at Lake Arrowhead to take my kids and grandchildren for a summer family vacation. When we found this property, we were very excited as it also came with access to an 18 foot open bow ski boat to fish and ski on the lake. I have been to many beautiful lakes in California, but I don't think I have found a more pristine setting for some incredible family fun. The lake is gorgeous and the homes surrounding the lake are striking. Steve, the owner, made himself readily available to answer questions or any concerns both before we arrived and during our stay. The cabin was built in 1926 and I enjoyed admiring the wood work and cabinetry as well as the wonderful decor Steve has put together that includes authentic antique furniture and nostalgic and historical accessories including animal mounts on the walls that make this the true mountain cabin experience we were looking for. The cabin had come equipped with tons of books and games to provide hours of fun if you wanted to just hang out inside. My favorite place was hanging out on the outside deck with the blue jays and butterflies under the towering trees and read about the early settlers who arrived in the San Bernardino mountains and the challenges they faced, especially in developing roads up into the high country.

Nothing, however, compared to the fun we experienced taking out Steve's boat on the lake. At 6:30 am when the sun was just coming up, the lake is mirror smooth and just gorgeous. We fished, wake-boarded, and generally just toured this amazing body of water. We had access to beach clubs and were able to dock at the beach clubs as well as at Lake Arrowhead Village where the girls were able to shop and pick up some food for our boating experience. The boat is easy to manage, and certainly was big enough to accommodate my wife, two sons, daughter in law and our two granddaughters without difficulty. We had so much fun on the lake and staying at the cabin, we did not want to leave and extended our vacation an extra day.

I am looking forward to booking this cabin next year again, as I cannot imagine a more perfect family mountain getaway. If you decide to check it out, I am certain your expectations will be exceeded.

Thanks Steve. It was a life changing experience.

Perfect rustic design with loads of space in a beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Steve was veryyyy quick to respond, and so friendly!! The cabin is so unique- and has so much character. If you want a high end modern place (which we do lots of times) this may not be it- we stay in 5 star hotels worldwide, and adored this cabin! The hot tub gets HOT which is excellent! The beds are comfortable and the cabin has everything you need. If you are addicted to the show Fixer Upper on hgtv like I am you will fall in love with the outside of this home, its beautiful. My kids had such a great time too, this would be a perfect cabin for a romantic getaway or a family trip. Its a 5 minute drive to the village and walking distance to jensens mini market and a diner. Thank you so much for having us at your home, we would love to come back again once theres some snow!

Charming Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family made a decision this year to have Christmas in the "mountains." We booked in July to ensure we would have the choice of cabins/homes in Lake Arrowhead. From the moment we booked, the owner (Steve) was in contact with us on important things we needed to know up until our arrival. Steve even recommended Santa's Village in Skyforest which is just about two miles from the cabin.

The charming cabin has everything and is in a great location! All we needed was to buy food for our stay which there was a market within a couple of miles. The minute we walked in, we felt at home. There were plenty of games for all ages, movies, fireplaces, TVs, kitchen supplies, extra bedding and more! If there had been snow, there were sleds available as well.

Steve was accommodating and available to answer our questions and to provide more information during our stay.

The 1926 Cabin is definitely a 5 Star rating. We look forward to our return.

Lake Arrowhead
Car: recommended

90 miles East of Los Angeles, an alpine lake elevation of almost 6,000 feet, Lake Arrowhead had been a getaway for silent screen stars of the 20’s and an active film location spot since the 1930’s. The lake is private. This property has full lake rights; a membership to the beach clubs, hiking trails and marina is also included in this rental. The cabin is one block off lake and a few minutes to Arrowhead Village food markets, restaurants, outlet stores, the country’s first water ski school, large paddle boat lake tours, and a lakefront park for picnics. The entire lake area is surrounded by the San Bernadino Mountains which have the best hiking trails and trout fishing in southern California. In the winter months there is a wonderful local ski slope with five lifts 15 minutes from your living room. Lake Arrowhead is a year round resort with all the amenities that make for a delightful vacation. At one mile high there are cool summer nights and moderate winter temperatures with enough snow falls to keep the ski area busy.
