  • 1400 sq. ft.

House Rules

  • Max. occupancy 8
  • Minimum Age Limit For Renters:

    21 yo; Must have CaDL and major credit card ...moreless

  • Children Welcome:

    Maximum Occupancy 4 adults/ 4 children...moreless

  • Non Smoking Only:

    Absolutely no smoking, inside OR out (c/mon - its the WOODS! Try some fresh mountain air)...moreless

  • Pets Considered:

    $25 p/pet first 3 days, $5 every day after; Must be well behaved and completely house trained. Property must be thoroughly cleaned of all dog hair and other “leavings”. Charges will apply if pets damage carpets, furniture etc. No fenced yard. Small “potty” area in patio, but all business must be bagged/disposed. Plenty of great places to walk Fido, but lots of critters so letting a pet run free is a really bad idea. Small “run” at the back of the house but should only be used for short periods and you should always make sure both ends of the run (including the gate at the shed area) are latched; if Fido makes a nuisance (like barking while you are gone) from being left it will be a problem, and no guarantee that a coyote or really big raccoon won’t hurt (or eat) them. Mountain lions are not unheard of, though we have never seen one. Bottom line: take your dog at your own risk....moreless

    Lake Gregory View on map

    Lake Gregory Regional Park offers a great place for visitors to escape.The lake's surface is at an elevation of 4,550 feet and the ridges around the lake climb up to a thousand feet higher. Summer temperatures are often 20 degrees cooler than in San Bernardino, which is only 14 miles away by car. Unlike Lake Arrowhead, which is private, visitors can swim, boat and fish in Lake Gregory. Visitors can swim, ride on the lake’s two 300-foot waterslides, and rent paddleboards, rowboats, paddleboats, sailboats and water cycles. Outside of the swimming area, anglers will find excellent fishing for trout, catfish and bass. The lake is also an excellent place to exercise in the cooler mountain air on the state-of-the-art fitness

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We worked for the county 10 years and lived in this piece of paradise during the week - now retired and can't bear to give it up! We use it too, and share it when we can't - our home is El Centro and we also have vacation property in San Felipe and Rosarito Baja Mexico so we can't be everywhere all the time....Your advantage!

Why the Owner Chose Crestline, CA, USA:
Its a house that feels like a cabin - but a very well appointed one! !!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Its the best deal on the mountain for this luxury property type - hands down - read our reviews we have many many return customers. If you are willing to put in the effort to do your own cleaning, and bring your own linens and paper, this is the place for you. If you treat our little house right you can come back at a discount.
