About Romel Nusdorfer

I grew up in this home and, while I currently reside in Los Angeles, Ca, I still consider Lake Arrowhead my home from home.

Romel Nusdorfer purchased this house in 1991

Why Romel Nusdorfer chose Lake Arrowhead

Naturally, I am very sentimental about this home, given that I spent my of childhood and adolescent years here. While this is an older property, its age adds to its charm. Each one of the rooms has its own unique charm, all of them adding to the warmth and hospitality of the environment. When I visit with my family, I am still in awe of the way the living room looks early in the morning when the sun is rising. It is moments like these that I wish for all of our guests to experience when they visit our home. I want our guest to feel as if this is their home.

What makes this house unique

Antique finishes and furniture with modern amenities, accents, comforts. This home allows you to experience all the allure of mountain living while still having access to modern appliances.

By staying in our property, guest also have access to Tavern Bay's private beach and beach clubs, over 60 lake trails, use of Grass Valley, and Peninsula Parks, and lake fishing.

A lovely, spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend there with 14 people in April 1014, really enjoyed the house. It has many rooms - it enables various sleeping accommodations, including some very romantic rooms great for couples. One of them is like a full sweet with separate bathroom and kitchen. There's a huge living room (with a view!), nice patio, a fireplace, a grill. The downstairs kitchen is newly renovated with marble work spaces and allows many people to cook together. There is a big family table that enabled all of us to sit together and eat. The kitchen has also a lovely spacious nook where you can chill, look outside and enjoy your morning coffee. The fridge is big and the kitchen utensils are adequate. I think the only thing we forgot and did not find was pepper :) And even though we never had time for it, an upstairs games room with a pool table is definitely a plus. The manager Lynne was really sweet, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. The entrance could be a little tricky in the dark (the GPS does not not lead you to the alley and the front entrance is steep), so it is important to follow the driving directions. Overall, a great stay and an excellent value for the money. Thank you!

Spacious Cabin

  • 3 of 5


The house is spacious... 4 levels

Has a washer & dryer... good to have for little kids

Game room occupies little kids

About 5 min. from stores and movie theatre.

Snow play and skiing is about 30 min. (Snow Valley, Running Springs)

Bowling in Crestline is about 20 minutes, but a very foggy drive


Bad heating system...second floor is the warmest and first floor the coldest

Broken dinner chairs... dangerous for kids

Broken T.V. in the family room upstairs

Limited hot water

No non-stick pans

No light in the garage

Piled up trash in the garage...made the second floor smell bad

Parking in the drive way is tricky as it is very steep and with snow our cars were sliding back

We had to park behind the garage...good thing we only had 3 cars


Provide hand soap & kitchen towels

Add a T.V. in the Master bedroom

Connect the Wi-Fi,

List what stuff is provided in the kitchen, so people know what to bring (we had to buy a drainer and peeler, which is challenging during the holidays because stores are closed)

Provide blankets...the steep daily rate during the holidays should cover this

Don't charge a cleaning fee...the steep daily rate during the holidays should cover this

Fix the bad wood in the balconies so nobody falls through the wood

Give access to at least one garage to park. This would help loading and unloading. It is also nice during cold days. It might require you fix the automatic garage door.

Owner's Response: In our efforts to ensure the best possible experience for all of our guests, new and returning, we welcome and appreciate any and all feedback from our guest. As of January 1, 2013 the following repairs/updates have been done: The damaged chairs have been repaired. Wifi has been installed and is now available for our guest. We have made arrangements for the removal of all trash even between pick-up/drop off days (the between day being the cause for trash being on the property on day of your arrival). The balcony is currently undergoing repairs and will be completed by February 8, 2013. All suggestions for management have been taken into consideration and have been the catalyst for property updates including but not limited to new stainless steel cookware and hand soap and kitchen towels availability. A list of kitchen items will be posted on the vacation site shortly. We will be working with our capable provider to ensure that all televisions are operable and hassle free. With much gratitude, Management
