Lovely relaxing place
We had a great relaxing time in the woods at the cute cottage. Everything was cosy and welcoming. We slept really well with the nice cool breeze. Thank you Donna!
So Relaxing and Quiet!
We want to thank you for an extremely enjoyable 5 day vacation in your beautiful mountain cottage. We rent a cabin up in Lake Arrowhead every July 4th and this was our first time staying in yours. We love to shop, eat out, visit with our friends who live up here, see the great fireworks display and generally just relax. Our last night here we treated ourselves to a great steak dinner at the Antler's Inn in Twin Peaks, a liitle pricey but we will forever judge steak dinners by that place. Number one on our list. The cottage surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful and we loved the fountain, just made it so cozy. We loved the decor and the bathroom was beautiful. My wife kept saying she wants to know where you got the bedspread, she loved it. Plenty of room for us and our large dog. Thank you also for the delicious big muffins and other food you put out for us. The only small issue we had was the climb up to the cottage. We had checked out the pictures and saw the steps, but when we arrived my wife panicked a bit. She has a knee problem so I had to help her up and down the steps. A hand rail would have helped, but we managed and it was worth it, we really had a great relaxing time. Thanks again!
From the Owner
“If you want to get away from the daily grind, but are tired of long road trips, it’s the perfect place for Southern Californians to escape the heat as well as the hustle and bustle of the valleys below. When temperatures soar and smog is at its peak, it may be difficult to focus on work instead of daydreaming about vacation. But why wait until your “official holiday” for respite? Just a short drive from downtown Los Angeles, congested Orange County, and blazing hot desert communities, Lake Arrowhead is the jewel of the San Bernardino Mountains. So you can head up even if you have just a day or two to make the most of everything the area has to offer: Hiking Trails. If you love the great outdoors, don’t miss the opportunity to witness nature’s bounty up close and personal. - Whether your goal is fitness or fun, the trails in San Bernardino County National Forest are sure to please - Or just a hike among the trees in the woods right outside your Mountain Cottage Door.”
