Why Donna and Ken Ward chose Lake Arrowhead
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.

Home away from home
This was the perfect get away for my dog & myself. Had been working long hours so just needed a place to hang/her. The accomodations were perfect & cozy. No stove but we love to bbq so all was good. I highly reccomend The Cottage.
This property was easy to find , set up nicely for me and the wife. Easy access to lake Arrowhead Village which we had a blast. Easy trails to drive to and great Pizza walking distance with a small basement brewery. Will come back again
GREAT PLACE TO STAY
We loved this place. It was clean, comfy and cozy and the owners are amazing. They allowed us to bring our dogs (2 boxers) and were so quick to respond to any questions. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Lake Arrowhead.
Excellent cottage! Great place to to get-a-way
This place is a small and perfect spot to get-a-way to Lake Arrowhead. They have provided everything you need. We totally recommend it. (Note to owner: the hair dryer needs to be replaced due to smelling like it's on fire.)
Perfect place for a couple or one person to just hideout and enjoy each other or just relax. Such pretty surroundings.
New Years Eve Getaway 2020
Everything was just what we were looking for in a little getaway. From booking to departure, Donna was very responsive and answered all of our questions. The location of the cottage is so conveniently located near Hwy 18 and Lake Arrowhead Village and was very easy to find. There is zero noise heard from the highway. It is tucked away and it is so peaceful and quiet. Upon arrival, there was a parking spot for us, off the street, right next to the stairway up to the cottage. The stairway leads to a beautiful spacious deck that would be absolutely wonderful to enjoy in warmer months. Upon entering, it was evident that no detail was missed in a warm and inviting little piece of tranquility. The heater had already warmed the cottage and there was nice relaxing music playing from the TV. The layout of the cottage was beautifully arranged with everything you need. The decor was just darling and was very cozy. Everything was in proper working order and we had zero issues. We will certainly return in the summer when we could enjoy the beautiful deck and barbecue. I cannot recommend this property more; you will completely agree after your stay at Mountain Cottage. Thank you, Donna and Ken, for your lovely hospitality!
