2400SF Lake Arrowhead Cabin, 3 BR, 2 Bath
Includes beach pass to Burnt Mill & Tavern Bay and use of a Kayak!!!
The Dragon Cabin, once owned by Oscar/Emmy winning rich and famous is located in Lake Arrowhead which is a private lake in the stunning San Bernardino National Forest and is called the “Alps of Southern California” and is known as the best secret in Southern California!
OK, so you are wondering, why the Dragon Cabin—right? Firstly built in 1960 by the famous Italian operatic soprano singer Amelita Galli-Curci, and soon after purchased by Oscar and Emmy-winning Carmen Dragon, conductor, composer, arranger and father of Daryl Dragon the Captain of “The Captain and Tennille”. The “Dragon Cabin” stayed in the Dragon family for thirty plus years!
So welcome to the Dragon Cabin where you will be surrounded by the beauty of the natural forest full of pines, cedar, dogwood and abundant wildlife. The two-story cabin is in a park like setting with 2 picnic tables, wrap around decking along with 5 seating areas (weather permitting) viewing the forest and in the distance Mt. Baldy. Wow, the sunsets over Mt. Baldy are beautiful! Who knows you may even feel compelled to write a song or two during your stay while swinging in the hammock!
When you are not relaxing at the cabin during your vacation in the mountains, the lake is just a few minutes drive down the hill, or you can hike down the hill for the more adventurous. Weather permitting, you can walk around the lake at the Villlage and enjoy the views. Did I mention you have use to our 2 seated kayaks during your stay with our private beach pass!
Family or friends that are not into the many wonderful year round outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, water sports, horseback riding, and skiing (did you know Snow Valley Ski resort is only 13 miles from the Dragon Cabin) may just want to relax in the peacefulness of the Dragon Cabin and not leave our private community unless you like shopping! Yes, there is great shopping in Lake Arrowhead Village just a mile away!
Lake Arrowhead Village is just a few minutes away from our home offering great shopping (even factory outlet shopping), dining, 40 summer concerts, a yearly Oktoberfest, and a year round paddle sightseeing boat ride around the lake. All four seasons offer activities for all ages at the Lake Arrowhead Village.
Description of the Dragon Cabin:
Do you like fireplaces? If so, you will be pleased as we have 4 fireplaces, one being an indoor BBQ! We will provide instructions on each fireplace along with supplying firewood to keep you warm and cozy on those chilly nights.
The enormous dining room with forest views has the original knotty pine cathedral ceiling and oaks floors with seating up to 9 and has a fireplace that works as an indoor BBQ (no firewood). Why BBQ in the cold when you can be cozy in doors in the cooler months? Just bring your charcoal to cook your meals on the indoor grill. Great memories can be made in this room next to the galley kitchen set up for making snacks to gourmet meals. We also have a 32 inch flat screen and blue ray player in the dining room for your enjoyment.
The 100% knotty pine living room with 17 foot cathedral ceiling with wrap around windows viewing the forest sunsets with a fireplaces that roars. The living room is set for reading and small chat and of course enjoying the crackling of the fire and viewing nothing but trees!
The family/media room has a large stone fireplace designed by Carmen Dragon and where he played and wrote his music (don’t be surprised if lyrics just start flowing from within). This room is set up for fun, noise, music, 46'' flat screen, blue ray DVD, poker, bumper pool, foos ball, poker table, dancing, etc!
Your big decision for the day will be what room should I have my roaring fire in! Although if you are too tired after a long day of activity to make that big decision then the decision is made for you—there is a fireplace in the master suite with a comfy queen bed as well on the lower level!
There are two more bedrooms on the main floor, one with a queen rustic pine headboard, the other bedroom with a four-poster full trundle with a pull out twin if needed.
Both bathrooms have been remodeled for a clean and comfortable experience. The main floor bath has a new vanity and the floors are back to the original pine with the original walk-in shower. The lower level bath is fully remodeled and has a 4 bear claw tub with view of Mt. Baldy and a walk-in shower with two shower heads and 2 vanities.
Wireless WiFi, Dish for TV, and Verizon phone service is provided free of charge for local and long distance within the US.

We love to travel and have stayed at many wonderful VRBO homes and almost never stay at hotels. We are offering the Dragon Cabin as a vacation rental for your enjoyment!!!
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Owner chose Lake Arrowhead
We love the mountains, being near water and close to the ski resort for year round fun. Our property is very private, nested in the forest with enormous pines yet close to Lake Arrowhead Village and 13 miles to the ski resort. The best of both worlds!!!
What makes this Cabin unique
Privacy, on a 1/2 acre of land, abundant wildlife viewing, with a vintage mountain cabin feel, and updated bathrooms providing our guests with comfort & cleanliness. Exclusive beach pass to Burnt Mill and Tavern Bay beaches--Lake Arrowhead is a private lake!

We stayed at Debra’s property for 3 nights! It was lovely. It was very clean, and definitely able to accommodate the 4 adults, and 2 children comfortably! There was so much room for us all to enjoy! The property had everything there available to use that you can imagine. Debra was always available for any needs we had, and very helpful with the dates approaching with weather updates! I would love to stay again at this property!!!!
“Thank you Debra”. Justine
Thank you Justine for all of your kind comments about your enjoyable stay at the cabin. We love sharing our cabin creating great memories in Lake Arriowhead for all. We hope to have you back soon!
5 Stars plus many more if possible
This was a wonderful home that had all of the comforts we needed. Perfect for kids and teenagers. Owners were so friendly and communicated often. WILL stay here again!
Beautiful Cabin, amazing owners!
I throughly enjoyed my time in Lake Arrowhead at the Dragon Cabin. This historic cabin is located in a beautiful location surrounded by trees. I loved sitting on patio as the sun was setting enjoying wine, cheese and crackers. Each room if full of character from times past yet completely modernized with every convenience. I loved the lower floor with family room and the amazing master bedroom with fireplace, not usable in the summer of course, but still creating ambience. The mater bath has another stunning view from the bath tub and the double shower and two vanities are perfect for a couple. The bonus here are the owners, Debra and Jeff, kind, informative wonderful people who have created a great space to share with guest. This is the perfect retreat that should not be missed! Thank you Debra and Jeff for my fun stay, I loved it!
Fantastic get away
We loved our stay at the Dragon Cabin. We had everything we needed, and enjoyed the games, movies, and beautiful views from the cabin. The kitchen is very well stocked. The rooms are comfortable and the master bathroom is luxurious. Debra was wonderful and very accessible, and gave us all the info we needed for a great stay. We enjoyed the beach access and the inflatable kayak. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
We had an excellent stay at the cabin. The house was lovely, clean, and welcoming. Lots of room to relax and enjoy our time together with family.
The Dragon Cabin is all that everyone states and then some. Debra is so attentive ensuring that your stay at her wonderful home is perfect. We stayed for 3 nights with 4 adults and 3 large dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone including the pups. The dogs loved laying out in the cold on the porch while we had a roaring fire and lounged around. We cooked everyday, all the appliances work great. We even used the indoor BBQ to cook a tri-tip. It was yummy! We even got snow the last night. The dogs went bonkers playing in the snow in the morning. It was a great place and a great experience. We will be back... Kelly
We are off of Hwy 173 about half way down before you arrive at the Lake Arrowhead Village. The location is great as you are close ( one mile ) to all lake activities, (skiing 13 miles), restaurants, and shopping (one mile to Lake Arrowhead Village). We have a wonderful 2 seated Kayak available for guests weather permitting. The Arrowhead Queen paddle boat is open year round in the Village for tours of the beautiful Lake Arrowhead.
