Space 1,500 sq ft

About the property

Relax at “The Mountain House,” a contemporary multi-level house with a spectacular forest view from every window in the house that is perfect for four adults and up to four children (8 persons maximum - not suitable or 5-8 adults - not a party house). There are three bedrooms on quiet lower levels with two adjacent remodeled full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom has two twin-size bunk beds that hold a maximum of 165 pounds in each bed.

The updated and fully equipped kitchen features all stainless steel appliances and opens to the dining, living room, loft area and deck. Enjoy new carpet and flooring throughout the house.

Snuggle up on the large, down-filled sectional couch and watch cable TV, Hulu and Netflix on a 55” screen “Smart TV” in front of the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, complete with a gas log. Use the HDMI extension cord to plug in whatever is needed – i.e. PS3. Enjoy free wifi, and access the Internet through the “guest login” on a complimentary Apple computer.

Play table games, put puzzles together or read a book in the cozy loft. Children will have hours of fun in the small secret "Tree House" play loft in the bunk bedroom, hidden behind the closet doors.

You’ll enjoy breathtaking forest views from every window and overlook the trees and the ravine below from the back deck that spans the width of house. The house does not come with lake rights, but Lake Gregory is just 15 minutes away with a public beach and activities for the entire family. In the winter, snow skiing and sledding are as close as 12 miles away at Snow Valley Mountain Resort near Running Springs. Snow-Drift Tubing Park is another place to sled near Running Springs. And more skiing is just 26 miles away at Snow Summit in Big Bear.

Air conditioned. Stacking washer/dryer. Gas grill. One mile to Lake Arrowhead Village for dining, shopping and entertainment, and 1.3 miles to the newly opened Skypark at Santa's Village. Quick access to Rim Hwy 18 and hiking trails. Off street parking deck for three cars. This is a non-smoking property in a high end, quiet community.

About Julie Anderson

In 2012 we purchased The Mountain House as our family vacation get-away - a place where memories could be made with our two children, their spouses and our five young grand daughters. So many wonderful memories have been made here that we wanted to share the joy of The Mountain House with others. The proximity to Lake Arrowhead Village, hiking trails and restaurants make it the perfect time-away spot. Our sincere hope is that you will enjoy The Mountain House as much as we do.

Why Julie Anderson chose Lake Arrowhead

What drew us to The Mountain House from the minute we walked in the door was the view of the forest out every window in the house. The back deck that spans the length of the house has a spectacular, peaceful view of the forest. Many of our guests have said that sitting on the deck makes them feel like sitting in a tree house. The view is breath-taking in the Spring with the sea of white dogwood blossoms sprinkled throughout the forest. And nothing can match the peaceful feeling you get looking out on snow covered trees in the winter while staying cozy inside by the fireplace.

My four year old grandson declared this cabin was perfect, even before seeing the secret playroom!

A beautiful cabin in the woods, with everything you need. Close to Santa's Village and Lake Arrowhead Village. We had a wonderful stay!

The definition of perfection !

  • 5 of 5

As a vacation rental owner ourselves, our expectations are very high. We can wholeheartedly give our highest recommendation for the Magnificent Mountain House ! From the first communication to check out, Julie's attention to detail is evident. Every question you may have is answered before you ever ask. When you open the front door, you know you've made the best decision ! It is the dream of everything you have imagined in a Mountain House ! Everything is meticulous. It's perfection. That it is so close to everywhere you want to be, is just icing on the cake ! We had some fabulous meals & had great fun exploring the area. But, our favorite time was just staying in & enjoying our time away in front of the beautiful fireplace & looking outside & feeling like we were in a gorgeous treehouse.

There are many places you could book in Lake Arrowhead, but we don't know why you would. This is it ! Thank you, Julie, for sharing your beautiful Mountain House with us !

Nicely appointed and well maintained but no direct access to nature outside

  • 3 of 5

As a whole, we had a good time. Here is a list of my pros and cons with regard to this house:


Well furnished and nicely appointed. Everything was in good working order. Beautiful view looking over the woods. Loved the smart TV. Central location (5 minutes from the Village, 5 minutes from hikes, etc). Lots of fun board games. Nice and well-stocked kitchen. Comfortable beds with lots of space for everyone. Great water pressure and spacious bathrooms.


No direct access to nature. We didn't realize that you couldn't let the kids go play outside. The house is situated on a busy street, and the back of the house has a very high balcony that looks over the woods. You would have to walk down a very treacherous walkway to the woods that did not look safe for my kids. So we were relegated to being inside while we were at home.

Most of bedrooms in the house did not have any curtains/blinds. We were up and at 'em every morning right at sunrise.

Washer/dryer is very small/old. Be prepared to do very small loads, if any at all.

Great, relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing stay here. The house was plenty for just the 2 of us, functional kitchen, great bed, and comfortable couch to veg out on. We had rain and spent much more time inside that we had initially planned, so we were very glad to have a cozy space and a good view of the trees! The only "negative" which is quite nit-picky is that you can hear the cars drive by on the road from inside the house (maybe even louder because of the rain). I actually found it kind of zen, but a heads-up for people who would find that distracting or annoying.

We'll be back!
