Spectacular Forest Setting 1Mile From Village

Space 1,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


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 four children (8 persons maximum). 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.

The Mountain House is on Kuffel Canyon Road, which is a main road on the mountain. For our winter guests that means a maintained, snowplowed road. We also have a snow removal service that monitors snowfall and clears the parking deck.

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 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.

Julie Anderson purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Anderson chose Inland Empire

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.

Beautiful Conveniently Located Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the mountain home! Just a few minutes from Lake Arrowhead Village and central to other restaurants and attractions. The home itself is wonderfully appointed with everything needed including towels, housewares, etc. The "secret room" is a bonus and our 6 and 7 years olds loved it. I wish we could've spent more time there but the weekend itself gave us a taste to come back soon and spend more time. Winter is coming...

Beautiful Vacation Home is Easy to Love Staying Here

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Mountain House. We stayed for four nights and it is a great place to stay for a relaxing getaway. The house is an absolute wonder, very clean, organized, beautifully decorated and appointed (and the bathrooms have been upgraded since our last visit). In short, it has everything one needs for a stress-free vacation (especially the huge living room couch and smart TV above the fireplace!). Julie continues to do a fantastic job keeping the place in great condition, and she is very easy to work with. One of the lasting impressions we had from the first visit was that it felt like a tree house looking out from the balcony and rear windows; and after our recent visit that impression is still with us. We highly recommend staying here, and we will be back in the future. Thanks Julie!

Lake Arrowhead Family Vacation

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this property with another family for a couple of days. There really isn't much to do in the area; the rental doesn't have lake access and the property is on a very steep hillside so it wasn't easy to access the backyard for the kids to play in the snow. The house has an odd layout with 3 different levels. Be careful in the shower; if someone flushes the toilet, the shower gets scolding hot (not good for the littlest ones). The house is very close to the street and you can hear a lot of traffic noise. The inside of the house is nice and cozy.

A great place to get away and relax!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 7 nights at the Mountain House and had such a great time. The house is in a great location making it easy to go to different restaurants close by. Up the hill was great food. Down the hill, great food and shopping in the village. When we cooked our own meals, everything we needed for cooking was there. Cozy fireplace and smart TV. Everything was organized and explained so well, we never needed to contact the owner.

We travel a lot and use VRBO almost everywhere we stay. This place impressed us so much we had to submit a review for the first time.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three young girls, and I had the pleasure of staying at the Mountain House this winter and could not be more happy that we chose this home. It was worth every bit of the cost. This home combines ultimate comfort with beautiful design. The owners have thought of everything from a complete kitchen and dining set to personalized toiletries. You could really feel the attention to detail in this home. My girls thoroughly enjoyed the kids play nook, or as they called it "the clubhouse". We are already talking about a return trip.
