About the property


THIS AMAZING CABIN IS CURRENTLY FOR SALE. INQUIRE ABOUT RENTAL SPECIALS! NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATION UP TO 30 DAYS IN ADVANCE. Bright, beautiful, "modern spin" on the traditional cabin retreat, this vacation home will whisk you away from the pace and the tone of the city without the "camping indoors" feeling of some dark cabins around the lake. Our cabin includes a LAKE VIEW, CENTRAL A/C, FAST WiFi, NETFLIX, AMAZON PRIME and LAUNDRY! We are only one mile from the Tavern Bay beach club! An interior designer was hired to bring a fresh interpretation of mountain coziness with modern simplicity to our cabin home. Completely renovated in late 2014, there are no deer antlers floating across the ceilings or hanging on the walls. Instead, it is the Lake view that will call your focus: from the stairway leading to the front door, to the outdoor balcony/bbq/dining area, and especially from the Master Bedroom loft when you wake in the morning to the gorgeous, ever-changing kaleidoscope of color.

Inside, you will find that everything is new, from the dark oak flooring, the bright white tile backsplash, open-shelving kitchen with glassware and dishes/pots/pans, to the seating, the beds, the linens and towels. It's fresh, updated, bright, comfortable, cozy, and welcoming. The Master has an exquisite memory foam/gel mattress from Nature's Sleep, and boasts a private bathroom. The two bedrooms on the main level share an updated bath: one bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two twins. Each bedroom has carpet that's wonderful to wake up to on the cold, snowy mornings of the winter.

Downstairs is currently an "open area" that is being converted slowly into additional sleeping quarter. Right now, it's a fun place for those with kids to run around and play, or for an adult who needs some solitude to find a quiet spot to sit by the sliding glass doors and do some "work" away from the rest of the house. We are happy to discuss the use of this additional sleeping area for your guests. The cabin is three levels, and it's all connected, so everyone is still together, even when the lower level is utilized, in whatever way guests decide works best.

Just around the corner from the cabin is a hiking/biking trail. Mountain biking here is beautiful and not too strenuous along this trail. Hiking is also leisurely with mild slopes and a very open walking path and pretty views.

In the winter, the Snow Valley Ski Resort and Snow Drift Tubing is 30-45 minutes away and Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are 45-60 minutes away.

In the summer, guests have lake access with a guest pass to the beach clubs. The Tavern Bay Beach Club is only 5 minutes away with a playground where you can swim or lay in the sand!

Lake Arrowhead bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Lake Arrowhead and what an incredible discovery it was. The Cabin was clean, well equipped, open and airy with great beds and a beautiful forest outlook. Many of the rental homes we looked at were too old fashioned, dark and rustic while this one was more open, light and modern. Loved the deck! We also took our dog who loved the whole weekend as much as we did!

Overall, pleased with the property.

  • 4 of 5

The views are beautiful and there is plenty of room for 6 people to say comfortably ( though we only had 3). The cabin was very clean. There is a small view of the lake and we were able to see fireworks from the balcony/patio, which was really nice! A few downsides, however: the indoor lighting at night is terrible. It is too dark to read or play games or anything like that. There are NO drawers in the bedrooms, so you have to live out of your suitcase. And watch out for the step down into the living room from the entry - it's a killer!!

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate to hear such negativity for a cabin that has received over 70 five star reviews from other guests. This guest was very difficult from the beginning of the reservation process thus it's not surprising that they were not as satisfied as so many others. It's a cabin, in the forest, with more features and is much more modern than most others even if the bedrooms don't have enough room for dressers or the the very high A frame cabin doesn't have enough traditional lighting.

Perfect and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with an updated interior! We had a wonderful family weekend at the cabin and couldn't have asked for a better place to get away. It's beautiful inside and out. The owner was easy to work with. Our kids enjoyed playing outside and we all enjoyed the beautiful kitchen and living room. The fireplace and deck were a favorite! The location is great, far enough from town to feel like a getaway from the city but close enough to hop down to the village for a shopping trip. We can't wait to come back and next time for a longer stay!

Great cabin, we had a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing time at this cabin. The view from the deck is stunning (perfect place to have breakfast)! There are lots of lovely hiking trails in the area. Lake Arrowhead is a very dog-friendly town which is great as our little furry friend was able to come everywhere with us. Highly recommended!!

Fantastic get away home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It's been updated in every way and made comfortable and relaxing. The location was great; views are spectacular from the deck and inside. We loved the fact that we could bring our dog with us and there were plenty of trails from the house to take walks. Our teens really enjoyed the downstairs room where they could escape and have their own space. It was a quick drive over to Snow Valley to enjoy the snow for the afternoon and then back to the house to relax, cook in and watch movies.

We definitely recommend this home and plan to be back ourselves. Scott was great to work with. Communicated all the details we needed and even offered an early check-in which we were happy to take advantage of.

The place is a real find

Loved the place.

We brought our dog who loved the open space. We loved the modern architecture and furnishings. The foam bets were great to sleep on.
