About the Property
SECLUDED, LUXURIOUS, IMMACULATE, SPACIOUS 1,200 SQ FT, 1 BEDROOM, 2 BATH COTTAGE
The Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage is, hands down, the most picturesque, immaculate, luxurious, spacious and secluded one bedroom cabin in Lake Arrowhead. Established in 1922, it is nestled among the dogwoods, cedars, maples and pines at an elevation of 5,500 feet, on the lush side of Lake Arrowhead. It is conveniently located 3/4 of a mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village. If this cottage is booked, try our other cabin - the five star rated, Hershey Cabin by typing 514845 in the search box (above, under the VRBO logo), and click "search".
We are catering to couples or individuals going away for an ANNIVERSARY, HONEYMOON, SPECIAL OCCASION, ROMANTIC GETAWAY or even MARRIAGE PROPOSALS (we have had four at the cottage!). THEREFORE, WE DO NOT RENT TO MORE THAN 2 ADULTS. The cottage is on a half acre of lush forested land and is reached by crossing a small seasonal stream on our own beautiful footbridge. Parking is easy and level, as is access to the cottage - across a foot bridge, up the walk way and up six steps - and unlike most cabins up here, we have lots of level land.
THE COTTAGE MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. IF THIS IS NOT YOUR INTENT, THIS IS NOT THE COTTAGE FOR YOU! WE CHARGE FOR EXTRA FOR EXCESSIVE CLEANUP.
Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away or for an extended vacation. During our major renovation in 2014, we installed porcelain tile floors, granite counter-tops, all new stainless appliances and a hi-tech central forced air heating system to keep you cozy. The cottage has been decorated by my wife, who is experienced in incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both modern furnishings and antiques, providing the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth of a traditional Lake Arrowhead cottage.
The focal point of the cottage is the exquisite fireplace, faced with hand-hewn, split granite boulders. It is accented by a rustic knotty pine log mantel and artisan hand-hammered, bronze fireplace doors. The beautiful gas log fireplace ignites with the push of a button. To the side of the fireplace is a 42 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV. (We have high speed internet/WiFi and Netflix, but do not have regular cable TV or a DVD player). What a perfect place to snuggle up by a glowing fire and watch a movie!
The "Hobbit" bathroom, downstairs, has a beautiful back splash, custom lighting and a unique sink that has been carved out of a large granite rock,. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home, and then some. A new washing machine and dryer are in the hallway upstairs.
The beautifully decorated bedroom suite has peaceful views of the canyon out the windows and cozy, upscale bedding on a new (5/2017) Novaform Queen Memory Foam mattress. The mattress is one of the top rated mattress by Consumer Reports, and is given a firmness rating of medium. This elegant room has a vaulted ceiling, separate sitting area and full size closet. Relax after a day of exploring by taking a shower under the rain shower head in the newly remodeled master bathroom. The bedroom also has access to an outside deck which overlooks the canyon. The cottage has a charming front porch and a large side patio where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner while enjoying the scenery and the sounds of birds in the beautiful canyon. On a warm evening, relax in the chase lounges, sipping hot cocoa and marveling at the stars!
The cottage is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find. It is surrounded by majestic old growth cedars (over 100 feet tall), dogwoods (that have beautiful flowers in the spring, and turn bright orange and red in the fall), pines, spruce, maples and rhododendrons. Step back in time by crossing the bridge, and notice the custom milled knotty pine siding, heavy timber moldings and beautifully crafted, massive front door. You will have arrived at one of the most picturesque cottages, in one of the quietest canyons, in Lake Arrowhead. This is exactly why the original owners built here almost a century ago!!
Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Unlike many cabins, WE PROVIDE A PASS so you have access to hike the trails around the lake, use the two beach clubs (Memorial Day through Labor Day), and fish from the shore or use the Arrowhead Lake Association fishing dock.
WE RENT OUT 1,200 SQUARE FEET - THE ENTIRE 1ST FLOOR DOWNSTAIRS AND THE MASTER BEDROOM UPSTAIRS. THERE IS A SECOND PRIVATE BEDROOM (WITH A LOCKED DOOR) THAT MY WIFE AND I USE WHEN WE COME UP. WE WILL OF COURSE NOT BE THERE DURING YOUR STAY!
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.

We are part of the Burnt Mill Canyon Association which is a group of about 100 home owners. The land that our homes are on was originally owned by the Forest Service and was leased to the owners. In about 1975 the land was sold to those owners who had leases, and green belts were created in between the cabins, providing for a very low density area.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: 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 I do property management on the side. We love the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, biking etc.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Arrowhead, CA, USA:
(We have another Lake Arrowhead cabin - at the bottom of this page click on the "click here to see all my listing" line to see the Historic Hershey Cabin). A year ago we purchased, and still own, use and manage, the historic “Hershey Cabin” which you will also find on VRBO/HomeAway under #514845. We liked Lake Arrowhead so much that we decided to buy and fix up another cabin up here. We looked at almost every cabin that came on the market in our price range for over 9 months, until we found the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage. It is in a fabulous location – in Burnt Mill Canyon, Lake Arrowhead. The canyon is filled with old growth cedars and pines, in addition to the gorgeous dogwood trees with their flowers and autumn colors. When it rains or snows, it creates a seasonal creek that goes underneath our 35 ft. foot bridge. The cottage itself is like a postcard picture – just what you think a cottage should look like. The road outside the cottage is lightly traveled.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
At way less than the price of a 400 square foot room with a parking lot view at Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, you get your own, gorgeous, immaculate, quiet, private 1200 square foot cottage in one of the prettiest parts of Lake Arrowhead. The kitchen is equipped with all new stainless steel appliances, new dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc. Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, and to use the lake, the beach clubs, and the lake trail, you must have a "Beach Club Membership" pass. We have the pass for your use. In addition, we have an "Adventure Pass" which allows you to park your car while you go hiking in the San Bernardino Forest. For those of you who like to hike, we have 2 books on hiking in the San Bernardino Mountains, as well as maps and other information. Upon arrival, you will find a welcome basket including chocolates, coffee, tea etc. We have a great house keeper who keeps the cottage immaculate, and we also have a wonderful neighbor who watches out for the cottage and can help you in an emergency. Compare the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage to any Lake Arrowhead hotels and you will see that we beat them across the board in price, privacy, size, quality and features.
