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.
