REINDEER COTTAGE is one of five cabins that we personally own and rent in Wrightwood. You may also be interested in: OWLS NOOK, CHICKADEE, LITTLE PINES CABIN, or THE HIDEAWAY.
Reindeer Cottage is a 3-bedroom Wrightwood Cabin Rental near Mountain High Ski Resort. Walking distance to hiking, sledding, and the quaint village shops/restaurants. Very close to the Wrightwood Country Club, a popular spot for weddings. This cabin is over 80 years old but has been remodeled to meet modern needs while still retaining its vintage charms.
Two bedrooms on the main level include one queen bed room and one room with 2 twin beds, which can be pushed together and made into a King bed (albeit a little shorter than normal King beds). The loft bedroom includes a double bed and 2 twin beds. Altogether the cabin can sleep up to 8.
The one bathroom is small but adorable, with a custom spa-like shower complete with travertine tile, river pebble floor, and rain shower head. View of mountain from the shower. The sink is a custom-made concrete bowl vessel sink mounted on a piece of a giant fir tree trunk that was cut down locally.
The living room features a real reindeer (taxidermy head mount), sectional sofa, wood-burning fireplace, knotty pine plank walls, vaulted ceiling, wagon wheel chandelier, games, movies, flat screen TV, Dish Satellite and wifi. Central heat furnace for winter; portable A/C and fans for summer if needed (most homes in Wrightwood use the cold summer night air in place of air conditioners).
The retro kitchen includes stove/oven, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, pots & pans & dishes & utensils, etc. Does not have a dishwasher or disposal due to the age of the cabin. Next to the kitchen, the wooden sunroom serves as a dining area, with custom made wood table (made from the cabin's old front door and the weathered wood of the old back deck) and seating for 8.
There's a luxurious infrared dry-heat sauna in the yard, perfect for 2 people.
Gorgeous back deck made by a local lumberjack from local trees; views of mountain from deck. BBQ grill, completely fenced yard with apple tree, playhouse. Sleds available for use.
All linens provided. Front-loading washer and dryer in cabin.
Guests can enjoy discounts at Mountain High ($39 8-hour passes, blackout dates apply), Admo Motorcycle Tours (10% off), and more.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are a family of four with one son who's a competitive snowboarder and one who's a competitive skier. We bought our first cabin in Wrightwood to use for ourselves on weekends, but fell in love with Wrightwood and bought a house up here to live in full time. We've had so much fun renting out that first property (Little Pines cabin & the Hideaway) to others seeking great travel memories that we decided to buy another, Reindeer Cottage. Soon after we added Owls Nook and Chickadee as well. When not busy with our cabin business, we do have "real jobs" down the hill as professors.
Why the Owner Chose Wrightwood, CA, USA:
This cabin was in rough shape when we first saw it on the market. In fact, it sat without a buyer for months, scaring off potential bidders with its interior water damage, thick dust, 1970s decor, and a huge back deck too treacherous to step a foot on. We decided to take a chance on it, and we're glad we did! It's been fun to see the diamond in the rough shine through. You can see the transformation on our website, StayInWrightwood.com.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we bought our other property (Little Pines) we picked it because it was contemporary on the inside, despite looking like a cabin on the outside. What we love about Reindeer Cottage is how much of a vintage old cabin it actually is -- it's fun to have both ends of the spectrum. We've tried to keep and even reinstall some of the old era details, while modernizing in other spots, such as creating a new spa-like shower with river pebbles, travertine, and rainfall shower head. Our favorite features include the mountain views, the sunroom, the back deck, the large-plank knotty pine throughout, and the reindeer head mount we found secondhand that now graces the space above the fireplace. Someday we'll add horseshoes to the side yard and install an outdoor shower in the backyard, plus much more. If only we had more time to work on these projects!
