About Helen Lopez

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!

Helen Lopez purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Helen Lopez chose Crestline

It's a house that feels like a cabin - but a very well appointed one! !!

It's cheaper than most at in the area, because it's "Self Serve" so guests provide their own bedding, paper products, cleaning, and trash service. Its not for those looking for a "RESORT" vacation, it's for those who want a reasonably priced place to share and are willing to take the responsibility of day to day upkeep. Truly a "Home Away from Home"

What makes this chalet unique

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.

Best place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to this cabin many times and it is always our first choice when we visit the mountains! Helen is a delight to work with and always so helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Another Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is by far our favorite getaway in Crestline. We had to stay elsewhere once when Eagle’s Nest wasn’t available and it just wasn’t the same! This cabin/chalet is so comfortable and we’ve always felt like we were in a real home instead of a vacation rental. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, the satellite TV always works and the option of Netflix and Hulu is a huge plus. Another big plus - the bed is super comfy.

There are no street lights or city lights so the bedroom stays dark and it’s so quiet!

As far as hosts go, Helen can’t be beat. She’s #1 in our book. She makes everything so simple and straightforward, and is always quick to respond to questions. She goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome, yet never intrudes.

We simply won’t stay anywhere else!

Thanks Helen! See you again soon!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

I was new to this site, I didn’t have guest ratings but Helen gave me a chance to gain them. My friends and I attended Cal Jam 17, I can say that one of the greatest moments was staying in this amazing cabin. It was exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend this place to any of my friends looking for a place to get away and enjoy the peace and silence. Helen was amazing and I know I would come back to her place if I need to get away.

A great little hideaway in the hills of Crestline

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little hideaway in the hills of Crestline. While there are a few adjacent homes in the vicinity, it is secluded enough where you truly feel alone. It is quiet, and you really get to experience the nature around you.

Inside, the cabin is warm and cozy. The large living room is very open and provides ample interaction areas. The kictchen is large and is populated with all of the essentials. There are numerous fans throughout the house which greatly helped with the hot summer days. Two full baths meant that there was never a concern regarding use. I visited in August with my two children, and there was more than enough room. The twin sized bunk-beds are perfect for two kids! There is more than enough room for another two adults without any issues.

The only caution that i would offer is the driveway: It's not for the feint of heart! It's very steep and difficult to see both going up and backing back down. I stayed in the summer; i can't imagine how it is in the winter.

The owner, Helen, is very responsive. I had a slight issue with getting into the property, and i was able to reach her via cell phone immediatley. She was very accomondating and worked through the issues with me.

Overall, this was a great experience which i enjoyed very much. Highly recommended for a family or a small group looking to get away from it all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words - especially after the oops we experienced with the property address! To answer your question, the driveway IS a real challenge, and worse in winter, but many in the mountains are, or worse. Its the price we pay to be "up" and overlooking everyone else.... And that's why we have a handrail, so folks can park at the bottom and walk up (for the "feint of heart"). I tend to forget, as I've been doing it so long I have it down to a science. Thanks again, and welcome back anytime.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house so we could attend a family reunion in Crestline. Eagle's Nest is right around the corner from my sister in laws, so it was perfect. The driveway is very steep, so not sure we'd stay during winter, but everything else was great!

Enjoyed our stay very much. A screen on the patio door would have been nice, but, we understand how one could be damaged by renters. The washer & dryer were a plus. Loved staying at this cabin.
