ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING OR PETS, ADULTS ONLY - (My wife is extremely allergic to pet dander).
Designed “Just for Two”, the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage is the most picturesque, immaculate, luxurious, spacious and secluded 1 bedroom cabin in Lake Arrowhead. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, anniversary, honeymoon, special occasion or just a weekend of relaxation. Established in 1922, it is nestled on a half acre lot on the lush side of Lake Arrowhead among the dogwoods, cedars, maples and pines at an elevation of 5,500 feet. Parking is easy and level - the cottage is reached by crossing a small seasonal stream on our own beautiful footbridge. It is conveniently located 3/4 of a mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village. If this cottage is booked, try our “Historic Hershey Cabin”, by typing 514845 in the VRBO/Homeaway search box.
OUR INTENT IS TO KEEP THE COTTAGE IN TOP NOTCH SHAPE - THEREFORE IT MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. WE CHARGE FOR EXTRA FOR EXCESSIVE CLEANUP.
During our recent major renovation, 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 (2017) top rated - medium firmness - Queen Memory Foam mattress. 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.
