Designed “Just for 2”, the Hershey Cabin is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away, anniversary, honeymoon, birthday or for an extended vacation. Originally owned as a hunting cabin by members of the Hershey (chocolate) family, it is nestled on the lush side of Lake Arrowhead, in historic Arrowhead Villas. It is situated about 1 mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village at an elevation of 5,500 feet. The Hershey Cabin is a very inviting, quiet, immaculate and comfortable mountain cabin. If the Hershey Cabin is booked, try our exquisite Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage, by typing 634044 in the VRBO/Homeaway search box.
OUR INTENT IS TO KEEP THE CABIN IN TOP NOTCH SHAPE - THEREFORE IT MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. WE CHARGE EXTRA FOR EXCESSIVE CLEANUP.
Totally renovated a couple of years ago, the cabin has been tastefully decorated to make it the perfect retreat for a private getaway. Every piece of furniture and art has been hand selected by the owners who have a passion for incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both antiques and modern furnishings, blended together, to provide the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth and charm of a vintage Lake Arrowhead cabin.
The Hershey Cabin has rustic knotty pine and redwood walls and ceiling, beautifully hand crafted rock fireplace, massive pine mantel and a porcelain/slate tile floors with traditional wool rugs. It has central forced air heating, dual pane windows and fully insulated walls and ceilings. Above the fireplace is a 40 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV (we have high speed internet/Wi-Fi and Netflix and a DVD player), but no cable TV. The living room is a perfect place to snuggle up by the fire and read or watch a movie.
The new bathroom has lots of tile, granite and a frameless glass shower. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with gorgeous granite counter tops, new cupboards and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home.
The bedroom has knotty pine walls and ceiling, and the view out the windows makes you feel as if you are nestled in a tree house. The bed has a memory foam mattress along with beautiful cozy bedding. Outside the bedroom is a new wrap-around deck, with bistro tables and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a meal!
We have easy paved parking along with concrete steps and a wrought iron banister up to the front door. The cabin is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find at night, as it has a lighted address. It is surrounded by beautiful firs, pines, maples and cedar trees, along with a nicely landscaped yard. The siding of the cabin is classic craftsman style shake.
Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Unlike many cabins, WE PROVIDE A LAKE PASS so you have access to hike the trails around the lake, use the two beach clubs, and fish from the shore or use the Arrowhead Lake Association fishing dock.
The Lake Arrowhead area is a little hidden gem, with a quaint village, dinner theater (Tudor House), movie theater, wonderful local restaurants and various shopping opportunities. If you are looking for a romantic get-away, or just a place to relax and have fun, this is just the place. Lake Arrowhead celebrates all four seasons - warm summer days, fall colors, snow in the winter, and a beautiful spring.

About Paul and Janice
My wife and I were married in 1975. We love going on vacations, especially to the mountains - both of our grandparents owned cabins in either Big Bear or Crestline. We both recently retired! My wife's fields of expertise are education/teaching and interior design. I was a security consultant and do property management on the side. We love the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, biking etc.
Paul and Janice purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Paul and Janice chose Lake Arrowhead
We were visiting Lake Arrowhead Village getting an ice tea at MacDonald when our son spotted an ad for a one bedroom cabin at a local realtor's office. We weren't actually looking for a cabin but this one quickly peaked our interest. After checking out over 50 cabins... we chose this one because we liked the old cabin feel, the quiet location, and the lush trees on the property. The property, which was originally owned by members of the Hershey (chocolate) Family as a simple hunting cabin, was in major need of repair. My wife and I spent the summer and fall remodeling and renovating the cabin from the ground up. We saved the redwood and knotty pine interiors which give it the classic feel. We also own and rent out the gorgeous BURNT MILL CANYON COTTAGE in Lake Arrowhead. You can find the cottage by searching VRBO or HomeAway for property #634044.

My husband and I stayed at the Hershey cabin for a "let's get away from the routine" weekend and it was awesome! Paula and Janice did a wonderful job of remodeling this cabin and every corner and every detail looked as if it was a labor of love. I usually tend to stay away from cabin rentals because they tend to be "shabby" and outdated...but not this one by far. When I viewed the pictures online I knew this was the one and when we arrived everything looked as beautiful as it did on the website. The view from the bedroom and waking up to tall pines and the birds whistling was by far my favorite feature. For my husband it was the fireplace (he has a thing for fireplaces) . Although it was gas and not wood burning, the fire was so "realistic" and well crafted. It even had glowing embers at the bottom and if you listen hard enough you may swear you hear a crackle or two :) I appreciated Paul calling us when we returned just to check to see if we had any suggestions for improvement and to see how we enjoyed our stay...WOW...such excellent customer service. A hospitality business owner that understands the art of hospitality. I will definitely be my go to spot when I want to come up to Lake Arrowhead for a 1 or 2 person retreat. By the way, I have been to several Homeaway rentals that were all very good but this is my first review because it was just THAT special. Paul and Janice...THANK YOU!
Quiet Perfection !
This was truly one of the most peaceful and relaxing getaways . Far enough from the hustle and bustle yet beautiful lake views and nearby lake arrowhead village with great restaurants and in addition a lot fun shops to browse and grocery stores if need be. The cabin is appointed with everything you will need, all the comforts of home. You literately only need to bring food, drink and and a good spirit. Honestly you will not want to leave. Cant wait to go back.
clean rustic cabin, well maintained
Loved the rustic cabin look. Very clean , quiet and comfortable. Enjoyed sitting in front of the fire and watching it snow.
Very nice furnishings and fully stocked kitchen. Easy to read instructions for all the appliances and the TV.
Enjoyed Papagayos Mexican Restaurant. And Hot Shots coffee house.
Would recommend this property and no pets policy was appreciated.
it is as described + somore!
We are no newbies to vacation rentals and this little house was the most immaculate, organized and efficient we have been lucky to stay in. Everything is labeled and supplied. We could tell that the owners love this place and are proud to share it with visitors.
Robert, Janice and I are delighted that you loved the cleanliness and the organization in our Hershey Cabin. My wife was a teacher (now an interior designer) and I was an accountant - so I guess it shows!!
Paul & Janice

Absolutely everything seems to be band new. The cabin is well located and I would definitely recommend this to others.
Thank you for the great review "Excellent"! So glad that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for recommending the cabin!

CLUB ARROWHEAD (NOW THE TUDOR HOUSE) Bootleggers, gamblers, gangsters, trap doors and secret tunnels. Such are the legends of what today is the Tudor House. It began as Club Arrowhead in the Pines, a project of the Atkins Realty Co., which developed Arrowhead Villas and promoted the area as a place to “get away from the cares and worries of city life". Construction began in 1926, with the clubhouse being dedicated on July 4, 1928. A brochure for Club Arrowhead pictures the sumptuousness of the clubhouse and details the many activities available to members, such as swimming in the huge pool or horseback riding. An associate life membership in Club Arrowhead was offered at $250. Then the Great Depression hit. During the Great Depression Club Arrowhead became an elegant speakeasy with a trap door built beneath the bar to dispose of the bottles in case it was necessary. In the late 30's and early 40's, the infamous mobster Bugsy Siegel took over Club Arrowhead and ran a very successful gambling casino in the basement. He is also reputed to have operated a bordello across the street in a cottage belonging to the club (now the Fern Manor). The Tudor House is now a wonderful dinner theater/ supper club/ concert hall etc. The Tudor House is located at 800 Arrowhead Villa Road, about a half mile from our cabin.
