Awesome family home. This 4000 square foot home is one of the largest vacation rentals you will find. We have brand new wide screen smart TVs throughout the whole house (gameroom TV is 70 inches). It has 4 bedrooms each with a queen size bed, 1 with additional bunk beds, and 1 with additional daybed and trundle make it great for groups of families. The 1000 square foot game room also has 2 over-sized window seats with covered thick foam that is almost the size of a twin bed. Many teenagers prefer to sleep up there. Gi-normous kitchen to feed all. We have high end Kitchen Aide stainless steel appliances which include a Viking stove, double ovens, dishwasher, trash compactor and even a warming drawer. The outdoor living space is exceptional also. We have a top of the line Fire Magic gas BBQ, a gas fireplace and a gas fire ring outside to enjoy (no wood needed outside). There are 2 large patio tables and additional bench level seating all around. It is a very private deck and patio area with great wooded views. This house is located right next door to UCLA Bruin Woods Conference Center. It is 1/3 of a mile from the popular Tavern Bay Beach Club. We have purchased 2 beach passes which will allow 12 guest to enter. The newly renovated Tavern Bay Beach Club has a swimming area, picnic benches, snack bar, restroom and play ground. We built the large game room when our kids were teenagers. The kids would spend hours up there playing or watching a movie with surround sound and since it is on the 3rd level, we couldn't even hear them on the first level. Of course, us adults enjoy the game room too. The outside, which has a fireplace and fire ring, is a great place to relax at night and large enough for everyone to sit around. Of course, if it is cold enough, there is a wood burning fireplace inside. Don't forget the gas fireplace in the Master bedroom that can be enjoyed from the tub or in bed. This house is large enough to get everyone together and enjoy each others company but also large enough for one to slip away to be alone and have some down time. This is a quiet neighborhood and we would appreciate keeping the noise level down at night after 9pm.

About Paula

We built this home for our family when our kids were young. The upstairs game room was well thought out to be able to have our kids and their friends up there on the third floor while we were able to enjoy some quiet time downstairs or outside on the decks. This house allowed us to comfortably have friends and family over for BBQs or over night. We have recently relocated for our job and did not want to sell our family home. Many of our family and friends wanted to continue to come to the house and vacation there so we decided to open it up to the public to vacation at also. We have a lot of incredible family memories here and hope you will create some of your own at "Arrowhead Family Memory Maker".

Paula purchased this house in 2003

Why Paula chose Lake Arrowhead

This house is 4000 sq ft which is one of the largest vacation rentals you will find....especially at this price. The outside living space is comparable to a 5 star resort with the fireplace, firering, tranquil view and all the seating. We are just 1/3 mile from the popular Tavern Bay Beach Club so you can either drive or just walk there. Lake Arrowhead is an awesome place in the San Bernardino mountains. Book it for the week and if someone needs to work they can still commute.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like enjoying the deck in the summer evenings while the kids enjoy the 1000 square foot game room on the third floor! There are several free concerts in the Village across the lake. Incredibly, the sound of the music bounces right off the lake and sometimes we can hear it from the deck without the crowd of going to the concert.

This place is amazing and the owners are SOOO accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

My buddies and I did a weekend "Dudes' Trip", and were fortunate enough to get this house. It couldn't have been more perfect. The Game Room alone was worth the price of the stay! Spacious living area, gorgeous backyard with a built in BBQ, and very comfortable beds. They have access to the Beach Club which is a located just down the road from the place. Paula, the owner, was there to answer my questions every step of the way, and she and her husband were even able to order the Mayweather/McGregor fight for me and the fellas to watch on their MASSIVE television in the Game Room. It was truly a perfect weekend, all thanks to this wonderful house and its wonderful owners.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

This house well exceeds any impression I may have had from the pictures. The kitchen is a amazing and has everything you need and more. Every inch of this house is beautiful. At night, we moved all the fun up to the game room and had hours of fun. We went down to Tavern Bay and enjoyed our time there. We would love to visit this house time and time again. We are already looking forward to booking another trip

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have been on 4 family vacations and this one was the best. There were 9 of us with 4 grandsons ages 3,4,6, and 8. They came home and said that vacation was amazing. We went on the paddle boat tour which the kids loved, but other than that we pretty much stayed around the house. This house was perfect inside and out. We all had fun in the huge game room upstairs. We spent a lot of time outside which was as beautiful as the inside. Makes me want to redo my outside area. We had a lot of fun at the fire pit every night roasting marshmallows, telling campfire stories and just enjoying the outdoors. This house really felt like a home. Paula has done a beautiful job of decorating. We like to cook so we were so excited about the well stocked kitchen with everything you could ever need to cook and serve with. Thank you Paula, for everything and sharing your home with us!
