Safe Haven Forest Retreat

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 24, 2014
House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, 25 Sleeps

This unique 2 acre property sits at the end of Wilderness Road at an altitude of 6,000 ft. It is the last private property on the road and abutts the National Forest. You'll enjoy the broad mountain views and surrounding forest in this tranquil nature retreat. The wilderness is your back yard to enjoy. And yet, it is less than 1 mile to the town of Running Springs, 8 miles to Lake Arrowhead, and 18 miles to Big Bear Lake. You are literally in the middle of the mountains yet have all the amenities of the easy to reach resort towns. You can explore the National Forest and the mountain communities at your leisure.

Our property was developed as a forest retreat where people could find a SAFE HAVEN to pursue their enjoyment, personal growth, connectedness with nature and each other in a positive and uplifting way. With this in mind, we don’t want to have wild, drunken, disorderly, abusive, and destructive behavior on the property. If you are looking for a place to have a wild party, please don't choose us.

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5
Safe Haven Forest Retreat was ideal for our large group. It had three-levels, so we could easily separate our group meeting time in the 1st floor open area (with a ping pong table that we thoroughly enjoyed, but bring your own paddles!), eating time by the kitchen on the 2nd floor (more than enough plates, bowls, utensils, and a brand new, very efficient dishwasher, and tons of chairs), and sleep time mostly on the 3rd floor (with a smart bathroom layout so it was easy to assign rooms to particular bathrooms to prevent overcrowding). Everything was labeled so we knew exactly where to find items. And the owners are super responsive, returning emails within a few hours and getting the security deposit back to us promptly. If you have a large group, consider telling people to bring earplugs as the walls are a bit thin and those who sleep early may be disturbed by those playing board games late into the night :)

All in all, a great experience! We may make this our annual retreat location!

Owner's Response: We have aimed at making the place well organized and comfortable, even though it can get a bit noisy when you have a large group in one building. We do keep ping pong paddles and balls in a storage closet with other toys for youngsters. But, they do take a beating and seem to wear out quickly. If you are a real ping pong fan, yes bring your own paddle. Speaking of paddles, the boating pond is under construction and we hope to have it ready for summer.

The house was so roomy and accommodated 24 people perfectly. The optional adventure program was also well worth the price. The owners were very friendly and accessible. We will definitely be spreading the word about Safehaven Forest Retreat.

Fun family reunion

  • 5 of 5
What a fun place! We took advantage of all the indoor and outdoor games. From the climbing wall and mini zip line by day to the movie projector by night, there was something for everyone. We created wonderful memories and I look forward to going there again.

Safe Haven Forest Retreat - Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5
What a great cabin and beautiful property! Stayed here for a week-long family reunion and had plenty of room for all 18 of us. Amenities were exactly as described and our group immensely enjoyed the educational program offered by the owner, which included the zipline, rockwall, repelling and air gun target practice. Would recommend this cabin to everyone! Thanks for a great place to stay, Robert and Myriam!

Great staff retreat

Our team of 16 had plenty of space and a very relaxing time for 2 nights. The weather was perfect and we even got to turn on the fireplace once or twice.

Beautiful Family Wedding Location

  • 5 of 5
Our family and friends enjoyed the large,spacious house with all the amenities while attending a "backyard" family-style wedding. With over 50 people in attendance on Saturday, we never felt crowded and the outside area was a hit with all the children, especially the small zip line and the chess game! Everything was as pictured and described on the listing, keep in mind there are lots of stairs!! We even saw deer in the afternoon which added a special treat to our day. Lots of clean bathrooms and bedrooms to get ready for the day's events made life easy on this bride! The property was well maintained and ready for us. All in all, we appreciate the owner's help and permission to use his lovely home as our own private Bed & Breakfast. Beautiful day in a beautiful space.
