Skyforest is the Beverly Hills of the San Bernardino Mountains in So. California, and is heavily forested with Sugar Pines, Cedar Incense, Firs, Ponderosa and much more - with charming homes on large lots hidden among the hundred-year-old pines and Dogwood trees. The amazing natural beauty and rich wildlife makes this one of the most awesome locations in the San Bernardino mountains -- and a favorite place for people who prefer the outdoors with a little more seclusion and thick inspirational forests. Ideal as a romantic get away for a couple or a couple with a small child (rollaway available for child).

There is a nicely landscaped stone patio area nestled among the many trees …with outdoor furniture. Relax outdoors with a cup of coffee in the morning, read a book as you enjoy the tranquil, natural surroundings. A Bar-B-Q grill on the patio provides for great cook out opportunities.

A 36 inch TV (with 5 different Premium Movie and music channels) and DVD player provide entertainment. Wireless Internet service is available as well. There is a selection of books and DVD’s for a lazy afternoon.

You will be sleeping in a new CA King pillow-top bed and fresh linen. The Cottage has a full bath (shower/tub) and fresh towels. In the living room area a full-sized sofa, next to that is the kitchen area which has a dining room table and countertops with double kitchen sink and disposal… and is stocked with utensils, dishes, cups,… with a refrigerator, a large microwave, toaster, coffee maker (no stove), Bar-B-Q (for outside cooking).

Several quaint restaurants and charming shops are within walking distance.

* Take a short 2 mile drive to Lake Arrowhead Village where you can enjoy many more restaurants, shopping, summertime concerts, and the beautiful Lake Arrowhead with a fabulous boat tour.

* The town of Blue Jay is also about a five minute drive where you will find many amenities - groceries, movie theater, restaurants, and unique shops and theaters.

* Lake Gregory for fishing, swimming, beaches, and water slides is only 15 minutes away.

Forest service dirt roads throughout the area great are for hiking and mountain biking. In the winter months, you can sled and play in the snow in the immediate area. Skiing/snowboarding is a short 20 minute drive away at nearby Snow Valley in Running Springs.

Nestled in the mountains of the San Bernardino National Forest, Lake Arrowhead and Skyforest, CA, also known as 'The Alps of Southern California,' is a cozy mountain Lake Arrowhead resort paradise featuring numerous outdoor recreational activities, stunning year round scenery and wildlife, and a natural peacefulness that has lured people to these mountains for centuries for relaxation and a romantic get away from Los Angeles and others parts of the worl

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for an affordable vacation in the Lake Arrowhead area. We found this rental in the Lake Arrowhead area and it was exactly what we were looking for. We celebrated our daughters first birthday in this cozy studio cabin. It came with all the amenities that we required for us and our pug. It was quiet, relaxing, and very clean! We loved being able to wake up and all the windows open with the mountain air flowing through. Every window was like looking at a picture on the wall. It was a great short trip to the mountains and it was worth every minute and way better than staying at a hotel! We went on a few hikes in the area and in the evenings took a walk through the mountain neighborhood that was great! I would recommend this rental for anyone that wants a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. There is a lot of things to do in town which is just a few miles away, so the grocery store and specialty shops are not far away. Ken and Donna were great hosts and very welcoming! Thanks Ken and Donna!

How can I put it in words?! The Cabin was very quite and relaxing. If you are looking to escape from a world that is just going to fast or to just spend a few days alone with the one you love, and to take in the peaceful sounds of nature this is the place!!!! Thank you Ken and Donna for a relaxing weekend with my husband. We will be back very soon. God Bless!

I had a lovely time in this beautiful setting and loved the restorative solitude. Even the first two days of rainy, foggy weather did not undermine my deep appreciation of the beautiful green forest I was so pleased to be visiting. Donna and Ken are the perfect hosts and so pleasant to talk with about our shared love of our four-legged friends. Thank you so much, Donna & Ken! I hope to come again.

Perfect Couple Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful three day stay. This was the perfect place for a couple's getaway. It was actually nicer than the pictures - especially the deck area. The cabin was spotless, comfortable, and very private. Also, the owners, Donna and Ken are terrific people whom we very much enjoyed meeting. We are definitely planning to return and highly recommend Mountain Cottage.

We had such a great time at the Mountain Cottage. It was very clean and cozy and the perfect size for a couple. The location was perfect. It was secluded, yet close to the little village of Lake Arrowhead with various shops and restaurants. We had such a relaxing vacation, perfect weekend get a way ! We would absolutely return!

Owner's Response: Thank you both - We do look forward to having you back - it was great that there was still a lot of snow on the ground (per your wishes!) and as the days went by for you, you were able to enjoy a bit of Spring like weather -

We do have snow again, tho! And, more coming - :)

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5
It was just like the video on you tube (under the Mountain Cottage B&B name) we were really happy with our stay and had a really fun time - the cottage was beautiful and cute - it was so quiet and comfortable. We were in the woods and private - then we shopped 'til we dropped at the Lake Arrowhead stores.
Next time we'll explore more - we want to come back.
