About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Ask me for $10 discounted entrance ticket for the newly opened SkyPark at Santa's Village.

Picture yourself biting your favorite food or sipping from the wine glass or coffee cup on the deck outside or at the dining table inside while relishing the breathtaking lake and mountain view. Enjoy beautiful flowers blossoming in the spring. Feel the cool breeze sweeping across your face and see the white sailboats gliding on the lake in the summer. Watch colorful leaves dancing in the fall. Wow at snow-capped mountains gleaming in the winter. And hear blue jays chirping in the trees or right in front of you on the deck railings and breathe in the fresh mountain air full of negative oxygen ions to cleanse your lung all year around. Imagine yourself resting in this cabin submerged so close in this beautiful, sense-rich mother nature that is seemingly far but is only about one hour drive away from your hustle and bustle daily city life.

If you love water sports, we have an inflatable paddleboard and an inflatable tandem kayak you can take to the lake. If you are here to play snow, we have a sled for you to use. If you are here for a church retreat, we have a projector and a screen for your presentation. If you have kids, you can have them make noise, play all sorts of games, or watch kid-safe movies at downstairs family room while you chat or watch TV at upstairs living room. If you have elders or even someone who is wheelchair ridden, we have all the convenience at the entry level: master bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining room, walk-in shower, and deck; plus this cabin is level entry, and we even have wheelchair ramps to use to ride over the front door threshold.

The cabin is on an easy but quiet street and has central air conditioning system, which is rare in the mountain community and can keep you cool during those hot summer days. And read the reviews by all those previous guests! The cabin is about 5-minute drive to the lake and 15-minute drive to the Village.

Everything necessary for living is included such as utensils, pots & pans, condiments, bedding, towels, tissue paper, and plenty of DVDs. Each bedroom's beds are so configured that either a couple or several singles can sleep in it. Up to five cars can be parked at the front.

4pm check-in and 11am checkout. Earlier check-in or later checkout is allowed free of extra charge as long as there is no same day check-in or checkout and if you ask in advance. You will be given the address, the keypad code, and all the details about the cabin via e-mail one day before your arrival. Your damage deposit will be refunded about one week after you check out.

If you have a big group, you can rent my neighbor's cabin (listing #421389) at the same time for your overflowing guests down the same street, which is only about five-minute walk away. He will give you 10% discount. You can also book one of the two other cabins which I am managing as well, listing #654413, #721641, and #592593, and you can get 10% discount.

Beautiful Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this property. We were a large group and Michael, the owner was so accommodating and easy to get in contact with, all through the booking process as well as during our stay. We stayed 3 nights and each night was perfect! Vicky the housekeeper was there as we arrived since we arrived exactly at 4 pm (check-in time), which was great because she was really friendly and showed us around a bit. The views from the home were beautiful and every room including the kitchen was nice and clean and was fully stocked. The game room on the lower floor was great, there's a pool table that serves as a ping-pong table and a Foosball table as well. That room was great, since we had kids in our group it was great to have them play and keep busy there. The location of this property was near a Jensen's grocery store about 10 minutes away and several restaurants were around the area as well. Several of us in my group went snowboarding at Snow Valley and it was a short drive only about 30 mins. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, its a beautiful property and very accommodating for a large group. We will definitely be back next year!

Cozy, lovely, clean home with attentive host

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far the best cabin I've ever stayed at in the Lake Arrowhead area. The best part were the sheets! So clean and smelling of detergent. I have massive dust mite allergies and felt not even a little tickle in my nose. Michael was extremely responsive - picked up when I called, emailed directions and answered my questions (one was, is it worth it to drive to Big Bear Village - he said that because our stay was so short, it probably wasn't worth it - and he was right!! He also gave us a tip that locals get into Santa's Village at $10 a head on weekdays - this was a HUGE savings for our family). My entire family was impressed with the house, especially the kitchen, which is huge.

Thank you Michael for a wonderful stay - I can't wait to plan our next visit and hope we can stay with you again!

Beautiful lake view cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4 day 3 night vacation at this wonderful cabin. I was so pleased with this place starting from the huge kitchen with everything included and a big refrigerator. The dining area was overlooking the lake and the patio was big and spacious for multiple people with a nice grill. There was a huge tv in the living room with lots of dvds to watch for all ages also there was Netflix hooked up. Best part about the living room was the surround sound that sounded great while watching movies and playing music from the Bluetooth on the tv. The king bedroom upstairs had a jacuzzi bath tub that was big enough for two people. Downstairs had a nice game room where we played air hockey and ping pong and pool table. There was another huge patio from the downstairs rooms. Overall it is a big and cozy cabin that's perfect for a family getaway with all ages. The owner was wonderful he never bothered us or gave any problems. He was very sweet and understanding he even let us have a late check out which felt amazing to sleep in on the last day. I will be returning to this cabin in January with another group that's how much we loved it!! Thank you so much Micheal !

Amazing time at Michael's Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Michael's Cabin at Lake Arrowhead with nice lake view deck, close to lake and big enough for 3 families.. His properties have all the needed amenities including little thing like Tripod for the DSLR cameras. Have stayed in so many properties with WiFi, but the WiFi at this properties was very powerful for all our guests. We all enjoyed the Kayak, paddleboard along with all the games in house. It was nice of Michael, an owner stop by to make sure everything is ok at the properties. Thank you Michael for your service. I'll recommend to my friends and families to rent your properties and will be looking to rent in the future myself whenever we think about visiting Lake Arrowhead.

Sincerely,

Binaya S.

Cozy Cabin

  • 3 of 5

This place was okay. The pictures make the place look nicer than it really was. In the pictures the rooms look bright and new/modern. The place actually has more of an antique feel to it. The game room is defective. The pool table doesn't work, and the pacman game is broken. The drive way is very small, can probably only fit 4 cars and thats pushing it. Even though it says the place can fit up to 20 people, you can only have up to 12 guests, and will be charged for any extra guest, $50 a person. If you're looking for an older cozy cabin then this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: I am kind of surprised at Victoria's review since she did not raise any issue to me directly when I contacted her. She did not even reply to me at all regarding her forgotten down jacket. To address the issues she has raised, yes, the cabin has more of an antique feel to it. Under Pool Table listing, this is what we have specified: "Flip game table between pool and air hockey. Since it is flippable, it is not to be considered as a professional pool table with perfect balance." You really need to know how to operate in order to use it. I am not sure why she says it does not work since she does not specify any details. Does she mean the slot machine when she mentions pacman game? That machine was broken by some previous group, and we will simply have to discard it. The front deck driveway itself can have up to five cars squeeze onto it but with pretty tight space. You can also manage to park more cars on the nearby roadside. We now list this cabin with normal capacity of 10 guests. Maximum capacity is 15, and we clearly list that additional guests beyond the normal capacity need to pay extra. It is simply unreasonable to expect to pay the same amount whether you check in 10 or 15 guests. Victoria's reservation was only for 10 guests. I do not understand why she complains about this particular issue. Maybe she actually checked in more guests without my knowledge?

family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful weekend at the cabin it was large enough for our family of sixteen, plenty of room for everyone. Older kids spent the time downstairs playing and having fun on ping pong table and air hockey and having there own space.There was plenty of room to sleep comfortably for

everyone. I can't think of anything that was missing in the kitchen it was well stocked with utensils it was a nice large kitchen with plenty of room to cook and

eat and a nice dining area there was a nice deck outside with a barbecue that we used since the weather was so nice.The instruction manual was very

useful and we did use the gate codes to get to the lake and had a very nice walk.Michael called us to find out if everything was ok and I thought that was

very thoughtful of him, we would definitely use this cabin again.

Thank you
