Your Romantic Mountain Cottage is literally under the tall alpine woods in the forest, just 1/4 mile off of Hwy 18 - Quiet, serene,. bird watching, and nature at it's best.

Why Donna and Ken Ward chose California

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.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited Lake Arrowhead this weekend for the very first time. The cabin we stayed at was very affordable, very well-maintained, and they provided excellent service. They even provided us with a small breakfast such as muffins, fruit and oatmeal. Everything we needed, they had. There are a couple of restaurants near by as well. I contacted Donna (the owner) a couple times, who was really helpfull. Overall, for our first time being there, was perfect! I definitely recommend this place to anyone. I've already made plans to return later this year :)

Cute mother in law studio ina quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The studio is very cute and extremely clean. In a quiet little neighborhood but a quick drive to lake arrowhead village. Not too bad a of a drive to Snow Valley, but decided it was too far with holiday traffic to attempt going to big bear. We somehow misunderstood the listing and thought there was a full kitchen, there is no stove and no oven. It is a kitchenette with a microwave and an outdoor propane grill. The owners were nice enough to let us borrow some pans so we could cook with the grill, but didn't quite accommodate all we had planned to cook. So if you are planning on cooking meals, it is a little tricky in this small kitchenette. Other than this we had a great stay and were happy with the cozy, quaint room.
