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.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 days over the 4th of July, the cabin was great, nice area and very quiet. The kitchen is well equiped and all equipment works very well. Living room is very comfortable and once you get the TV instruction down it works well.

Town is perfect for a get away, did not hear a single fire cracker which is what we wanted. Town does not seem to cater to tourists, I did not see a single gift shop or T shirt. Nice big market, some good restaurants. Lake is very relaxing and dog loved to swim. We will be back

We had a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have stayed at this cabin - it is in a beautiful setting and truly a home away from home. Both times, it has been clean and well stocked. First time we came "I brought everything but the kitchen sink with me" not knowing what to expect. This year, it was just linens, food and personal items - I would recommend this beautiful cabin to all.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve lost track of the number of times we’ve stayed at Eagle’s Nest. This cabin is so comfortable and relaxing that we always return. The location is close enough to everything to be convenient but secluded enough to feel private. The open floor plan is great! There’s a nice outdoor area for al fresco dining and a wrap around deck for just sitting and watching the birds. Comfy bed, great views and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Helen is the greatest host! Quick to respond and always available to answer questions. If you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway or a longer, more substantial visit to the mountains - this is the place!

Amazing Communication!

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with VRBO was a positive one! Most of the credit for that goes to Helen and our stay at this really cute mountain getaway. After booking the stay, my work became insanely busy causing me to go long periods of time without being able to check email. No problem for Helen who communicated clearly with me...even following up via text when I was unable to connect via email. Super clear instructions on getting to the place. We LOVED the accessibility! People wanting to ski should check the location, but for a weekend of hiking and quiet, away from So Cal, this is the place!

Pictures don't really do it justice. Huge kitchen (well-stocked pots, pans, cooking utensils etc.). The open floor plan provides a great area for a family or couples to enjoy. Nice little touches that make you feel at home during the stay.

She makes clear she doesn't want smokers of any kind, and you need to be willing to bring linens and sheets. You need to be willing to clean when you leave. All stated clearly in the ad. This was a birthday weekend getaway for me, and it was fantastic! Thanks, Helen!

Beautiful, spacious,secluded

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it really was. Far better than the pictures online. We are planning to return at the end of the year for an even longer stay. We were sad to go. Also, Helen went above and beyond expectations as the owner/renter of this property. She is truly wonderful.
