About Karin Watkins

Hi, we are the Watkins Family! We live in San Diego but spend much of our time in Lake Arrowhead at our second home in the mountains. Our kids are now 11 and 14 but were very little when we first purchased this home so you can imagine the many memories we have made here.

Karin Watkins purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Karin Watkins chose Lake Arrowhead

We chose Lake Arrowhead as our second home destination because of the many summers (and a few winters) I had spent here with my parents and sisters, as a child. It felt so familiar, peaceful and fun-filled that I wanted my own children to grow up with these same memories.

What makes this cabin unique

We were drawn to this property because of the tall A-frame ceiling and wall of windows. We love exploring and being adventurous but sitting by the fireplace, in front of those windows, was so peaceful, we could be completely content just staying in and enjoying quiet time together.

Ideal location, delightful home

  • 5 of 5

This property is an attractive, clean and well stocked older home with air-conditioning. The outdoor balcony is a refuge of song birds and whistling trees, where we dined in the mornings and evenings. Down stairs has a fun game room. This home is just a few driving miles from a grocery store, Lake arrowhead and the village making this an ideal location. Not knowing that LA is a private lake, I did not realize the importance of having Lake rights, which this property has. Bring floating devices in the summer as the water is clean and refreshing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to vacation in this home again.

Perfect for families! Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Karin was excellant at replying quickly to all the questions I sent her about the house & Lake Arrowhead activities. She had the house fully stocked with everything you need. It was very well organized & everything was easy to find right where she said it would be. The game room was a big bonus for the kids & adults. I loved the tri-level layout! Our 2 families were able to spread out comfortably. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks again Karin. Until next time,

Bianca Cobb

Wonderful wilderness getaway close everything

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Karin's place for 5 months and loved it! The place is spacious, there is a peek-a-boo view of the lake, a great network of hiking trails are just a few minutes walk away, and everyone around was very friendly. Plus, we were only a few minutes drive from Blue Jay Village and just over 10 minutes drive to Lake Arrowhead Village and about the same to Sky Park. The place has a nice wilderness, getaway feel while still being close to everything. If we decide on another temporary stay in Lake Arrowhead we will be sure to reach out to Karin and Mark about staying in their lovely home. They were excellent and very responsive hosts.

Love this cabin! Looking forward to staying again.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cabin is welcoming. Plenty of room. Downstairs is great! Our favorite part is the declivitous pool table.

The location is wonderful too. Close to everything you might want, but still private.

Karin is a fantastic host. Always available via phone and/or email.

Had an awesome family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this mountain home. There was plenty of room for our family with the three bedrooms. We had a blast in the game room with the pool table and foosball table. The setting is very quiet with pines around. Had fun at the beach club and even did some fishing. It is close to town and to the village. The reservation process was easy and Karin was quick to respond to questions we had. This was the second time to visit this home and both times were very enjoyable and we plan to be back.

Make sure to check out the 'Village' as well, where you can shop, dine, feed ducks and attend weekend concerts and special holiday events (i.e., Santa, Easter egg hunt, Oktoberfest, etc.). If you're a food/wine lover, try Bin 189 next door for a picturesque dinner or the local pizza place with its' lake view outside deck and an arcade for the kids. Lake Gregory is also a fun summer destination with water slides, water rentals and a grill. If hiking is your thing, you've come to the right place. Fun for the whole family or romantic for a couple's getaway...
