Destination guide

Explore Lake Arrowhead from vacation home rentals

Surrounded by the majestic pine and cedar trees of San Bernardino National Forest, stunning Lake Arrowhead makes you feel like you've escaped to the Alps. In fact, the area is often called the Alps of Southern California, and it has the exclusive feel of an upscale resort. Much of the land is privately owned, and you need to get permission from local business and property owners to head out on the lake itself. That's one reason a Lake Arrowhead vacation rental is a great idea. The other reasons? Gorgeous weather, breathtaking scenery, and fun for all ages.

The Mountain History Museum is lovingly maintained by the local historical society. It features Native American artifacts and exhibits honoring the firefighters who've protected the forest for decades.

Natural features

This arrow will point you straight to Mother Nature

Are you craving a walk on the wild side? Well, thank your forebears, because the wild lands surrounding your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental were designated a National Forest more than a hundred years ago. Local hikers and climbers are partial to The Pinnacles, a group of granite peaks northwest of the lake and chock-full of hiking trails and rock climbing opportunities. If your kids are scared of heights (or if you are) take them to Wildhaven Ranch instead. It's a haven for endangered and indigenous species.
