The cottage, a former cabin owned by the infamous Bugsy Siegel, has a style that is rustic & modern. Lots of light and the high ceiling creates the airy feeling. Everything is brand new in this newly renovated 1926 cabin. Private and secluded and minutes from the famous Tudor House, the famous gathering spot of Bugsy and his gang back in the days of prohibition. Explore the history the cabin has to offer and learn more about the secret tunnels, and tales of the past in the midst of the forest, while enjoying the modern conveniences like the SmartTV, comfy Murphy Bed/Couch combo, Washer/Dryer combo, remote controlled fireplace, and portable fan/phone chargers in the loft.

About Lisa Stotelmyre
We live in Brea in SoCal and have several vacation rentals in the area and also in CO. We LOVE the mountains and thrive on short escapes from the "concrete jungle" to the mountains any chance we get. This picture is how the cabin looked when we got it. It was quite the renovation project in the worst winter in Arrowhead in 15 years. We are proud of how it turned out and are excited to share it with our guests. We welcome your feedback and suggestions!
Lisa Stotelmyre purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Lisa Stotelmyre chose Arrowhead Villas
The property is located in the Villas where it can be tight amongst neighbors with narrow roads. The Bugsy cottage is on a 14,000 sf lot so there is space to enjoy the surroundings. It is SO comfortable and cozy (in a good way) with some outside space to relax and enjoy.
What makes this Cottage unique
Get lost in a bit of history and learn more about the Bugsy era. Aside from the unique surroundings mentioned above, there are some surprises inside as well. There are two hidden safes and if you can find them, you will be rewarded for your efforts. The Hints and Instructions document you will receive contains your clues. The Murphy Bed/Sofa combination is unique and the most comfortable bed ever! It pulls down over the sofa and coffee table and raises up to make use of the living space during the day. The loft is equipped with 2 small portable fans that can be used as a cell phone charger. The fireplace provides temperature regulated heat with a remote and will keep you warm even if the power happens to go out. The patio is charming and great for outdoor grilling or just relaxing.

Cute and tiny.
We had our grandchildren come to visit with their parents. That totaled 6 adults and 7 grandkids. We did not have an oven outside of the toaster oven provided and we had hauled up the mountain a 12 lb. standing rib roast for my birthday dinner with the family. Never fear, we purchased a turkey roaster at the local hardware store and all enjoyed a beautiful roast with all the sides and birthday cake picnic style on the living room floor. The snow arrived in time for the children to play outside most of the day. They all enjoyed the tiny cabin and the close quarters that inspired conversation and ingenuity. The grandkids loved “cracking” the safe and discovering treasure.

Quaint and comfortable
Our stay was very pleasant. We stayed for a couple of nights and really enjoyed the cottage and the local area. Lisa, the owner, was very helpful and quick in replying to our questions regarding the stay. We definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and family.
Fun, Cozy Cottage with some history
My wife and I came here for our anniversary weekend and we had a wonderful time at this cottage! It was very cozy and the heater warmed the place up very quickly. They really used the square footage of the cottage very well. We never felt cramped. The Murphy Bed was very comfortable. This place also had a loft with an extra bed that we thought was very neat. All the amenities worked well and suited our needs. It's not too far from the village and shops in Lake Arrowhead.
We also loved the history of this cottage and found it very interesting that it was once owned by Bugsy Siegel. They even included a fun game where you can open a safe and obtain a prize. My wife and I loved that nice little touch.
Overall, we highly recommend this cottage. A great place that's not too expensive for a nice weekend getaway.
Cute and cozy cabin 🏠
We stayed for one night and enjoyed the coziness of the place. The place was clean and it had the feel of home away from home with all the amenities (internet, smart TV...). The owner was very friendly and immediately responded to our messages. We surely will visit again and recommend the place.
Very clean and the owners were accommodating to our needs.
The Bugsy cabin is in Lake Arrowhead, it is in the mountains at about 5,500 feet. It is about 30 minutes from St. Bernadine which is at the base of the mountain.
The main highlight for this time of year is the cooler weather and clean air. The temperature will be 15 to 20 degrees cooler and there is still the smog issue in San Bernardino especially in the summer (although it has gotten so much better in the past 10 years). It is incredibly beautiful and peaceful with lots of trees. It is more of a small town feel with narrow roads in the Villas where the cabin is located.
There is Arrowhead Village that sits on the lake. There are shops and restaurants at the Village and the Arrowhead Resort and Spa is close by. Although the Bugsy cabin does not have lake rights (they are very strict and without lake rights you really can't even hike around the lake), however, we own another cabin that is within lake rights and we would be able to provide a lake pass.
The Tudor house is nearby and I'm including a link for it here. (URL HIDDEN) where there is entertainment weekly and they have an excellent brunch.
The other unique thing about Lake Arrowhead is that the people are incredibly friendly and down to earth. It is like being transported back in time.
Big Bear is another 20 minutes up the mountain and it has a larger public lake and has more clubs and nightlife. There is a huge mountain biking venue at the ski resort where you take the lift with your bike and bike around and then bike down with incredible views.
