Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 9

Ask me for $12 discounted ski tickets and $19 discounted tickets for the newly opened SkyPark at Santa's Village.

Wow, a stunning mountain view, a game/movie room, and having air conditioner for those hot summer days at such low price! Cabins with A/C are very rare in the mountain community. The kitchen is not designed for a big group.

Everything necessary for living is included such as utensils, bedding, towels, and tissue paper. Plenty parking.

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 way to get the key, 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.

You can also check out the other four cabins I am managing, listing #498393, #721641, #654413, and #699771, which are just five-minute drive away, if you have a big group, and you can get 10% discount on the second cabin you rent.

To avoid regret later on, make sure you click and read the Rental Agreement regarding penalty and cancellation policy before you finalize your reservation.

DONยดT RENT: NOT A 4BD HOUSE + RUDE HOST

  • 1 of 5

After staying several houses during our family holiday vacation in California - coming to this property was the biggest let down from the entire trip to the point we decided to leave earlier.

About the House:

- Terrible mattresses and beds (reason we had to leave earlier – older members of our group could not handle it more than 2 nights)

- Overall old and sometimes dirty furniture

- Not enough towels, sheets etc.

- Extremely thin walls and squeaky floor (you can hear everything from every room)

- 4 bedroom is not really a bedroom and has no curtains

- Kitchen very poorly equipped

- Cheapest toiletries available (like small fast food ketchup packages)

- Completely overcrowded with furniture (prob so when you re forced to move something to your luggage he can later keep your deposit stating you moved the furniture)

The worst part was the host Michael who was rude, untrustworthy and overall trifling.

For example:

- Requesting to be payed with a check via mail

- Charging extra fees for additional guest (even after accepting it was not really a 4bedroom room as advertised

- After complaining and requesting a refund, telling us: "he no longer wanted to talk to us" and later not answering his phone

- Keeping part of our refund because we moved furniture (which is a lie and I have the pictures to prove it)

- Also keeping part of our refund because he claims he had to do five loads of laundry (which is also a lie)

If you scroll down on the reviews you can see claims similar to mine buried in between extremely positive ones - so let’s just say is, mmm suspicious.

Overall, Lake Arrowhead is gorgeous. Just do not stay in any property associated with this guy because he will go above and beyond to rip you off from your money.

Owner's Response: This group came from Germany and asked for early checkout the second day after his arrival. I did not reject his request but proposed to him the most fair solution to both sides as I could think of. He rejected my proposal and chose to stay. I am a practising Christian. I consider lie a sin. I also consider attacking back a sin as well. I feel it is disgraceful for me to respond to his attack. Let facts talk. If you believe what he says, you have all the freedom to rent somebody else's cabin.

Had a wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We booked fairly late and were very happy to get this place. We were a small party - just a family of four but we stayed a week. Great place an also a member of the ALA so we had passes for Lake Arrowhead to go fishing, etc. Wonderful and relaxing. I do wish the Jacuzzi was more accessible (you have to go down the side to the back) but once we were in, all was wonderful

Great cozy cabin in lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with friends and family at this cozy and accessible cabin in Lake Arrowhead. The kids loved the well stocked game room which literally has everything the kids could have asked for. The lakes are close by within 10 mins driving distance and there is plenty of activity.. loved the place, definitely recommend ..

Owner's Response: I am glad to have the chance to host a positive guest like Shlomo. He did not complain and still showed a cheerful attitude facing a partial blackout. With such a spirit, he not only made his own retreat enjoyable even under an uncomfortable circumstance, he also made me even more willing to make it up by trying to serve him even better.

3 deposits - hard to get them back, Too many fine print rules

  • 2 of 5

In all my life of traveling. this place has the most fine print rules which are disadvantageous to the customer. E.g, you can't have more trashes than allowed, can't have more laundry than specified, can't spend certain amount of electricity, etc. If you missed following a rule, it can lead to forfeiting one of deposits.

This place requires 3 deposits! One is the normal one that every rental place has. Another one is a cleaning deposit of $$$$ which you will only get only half of it back if everything goes right. So, it is not a truly a deposit. The owner is charging you $$$$ more and the other half is really the deposit. Then, there is $$$ energy deposit. If you used the thermostat, you forfeit the deposit. I must say that it took me a number of e-mails to get all 3 deposits back.

And the tub usage costs extra $$$$.

My advice is that you ask for the contract and read it through before you rent this place.

The only reason that I gave this place a two star is that the place was clean abd well kept.

Owner's Response: Min's review is vague, unfair, non factual, and even misleading. The real reason he is pissed off is because he meant to rent another cabin of ours with a different address. It is unfair because on one side, he admits "the place was clean and well kept." On the other side, he gave it two stars only simply because of those so-called "fine prints." He actually wants to give it one star only. We list those fees 50% refundable clearly on our listing, on our quote, on our booking confirmation, and in our manual. I do not know what else I can do to be more explicit. There are no "fine prints" whatsoever. It is his or her fault if the traveller does not read even after I send over the manual. All our renters have done their homework before they book our cabin. If they do not read, they are not aware of those fees, and they do not care. For travellers like Min who do read, they are expecting the refund, and those fees are not "fine prints" to them at all. Our cleaning fee is 50% refundable. I learned this practice from a well-known local professional vacation rental company and find it very effective in managing. It rewards those clean guests while making those messy guests have a second thought. If we charge an exact same amount to everybody indiscriminately whether or not they follow our checkout procedure and no matter how much mess, trash, and laundry they leave over, aren't we being more unfair and wrong? Min is wrong when he talks about our refundable energy charge. Again, we try to be fair and keep our price low to those good guests. We only list this fee for summer and winter. You forfeit the fee only if you choose not to follow our instruction to set the temperature as clearly stated in our manual. Again, it is an effective practice to reward those guests who are conservative. Min finally admitted "we may have used it for short period on the 1st day" after he tried to be evasive. I do not understand why he is still complaining even after I refunded him the fee. Our hot tub fee is optional and is 50% refundable. Purchasing, installing, and maintaining a spa is extremely expensive. Again, this is an effective practice to keep our price low to those who do not want to use this option. We make it 50% refundable so users will be careful not to leave a mess or damage. I want to use this opportunity to shout out to all our future guests: READ THOSE FEES! If you do not like them and find them too restraining, you have all the freedom to take it or leave it.

Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Michael'a cabin in Arrowhead. If you have kids the game room is very entertaining. Nestled in the mountains with a great view, while still close to the town if needed.

Thank you Michael for the experience.
