About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Located at 5200 feet above sea level, this charming 1950's cottage is locally known as Hobbit Hollow. All seasons are wonderful... Summer months are mild with temperatures averaging in the mid 70's fahrenheit providing the perfect climate for boating, sailing or an outdoor barbecue. Fall is beautiful with autumn color and weather cool enough to enjoy a fire in the fireplace. Local skiing at Snow Summit; snow from as early as November until as late is April... February/March is when we typically get the most snow of the year. Spring is late in the mountains; May/June is when the daffodils, tulips, iris bulbs, dogwood trees and rhododendron bushes are in full bloom.


We have owned 'Hobbit Hollow' for over 12 years now. We've enjoyed wonderful vacations with friends and family and are happy to share this special hideaway with others now.

Cedar, pine and dogwood trees tower over the large stone patio and provide a shade canopy on sunny summer days. At the side stone patio is an outdoor fireplace, adjacent is a built-in barbecue with rotisserie to grill a special meal. A quick nap in the hammock breathing the fresh Alpine air at this altitude will alter your attitude.. help you forget your worries and cares!

Wood walls and beamed ceilings are lacquer finished redwood, floors are white oak. Bedrooms have plush wool carpet. With wood beam ceilings, the living room has a massive stone fireplace. The living room also has a large window with lake, forest, patio and garden views. Two master suites; one is referred to as 'The Red Room' and the other 'The Blue Room'... each has a queen size bed. 'The Blue Room' has a large built-in bed that could easily accommodate two adults in addition to the queen size bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with butcher block counters, a farm sink and a classic 1950's O'Keefe & Merritt stove/oven.

The drive to Lake Arrowhead from Los Angeles is only 1 1/2 hours - traffic permitting... and from the coast of Orange County it takes about 1 1/4 hours. San Diego is about an hour drive as well... Within an hours drive you can enjoy a complete change of season, climate and scenery... Hobbit Hollow offers a great escape weekend respite. Enjoy cherished quality time with friends and family. Take off for fun-filled holiday or a romantic getaway with someone special... just a little more than an hour drive from most of greater Los Angeles cities.

Lake Arrowhead Village is a 5 minute drive or 20 min. walk. The Village is known for its seasonal free concerts and family entertainment. There are also outlet/discount shopping opportunities, restaurants, a candy store... The Lake Arrowhead Resort Hotel is a 5 star facility with a full gym and spa - available to the public for a small fee. Summer months at the lake offer kayak or paddle board. Several times a day you can ride the Arrowhead Queen around the lake and hear stories of early Hollywood Royalty that made Lake Arrowhead their vacation home away from the city. A year round vacation retreat!
