SPACIOUS PET FRIENDLY CABIN SLEEPS 10: THREE BLOCKS FROM TOWN CENTER!

Wrightwood Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10: 3 Bedrooms (king, queen, full, 3 twins, full futon), 2 Baths

We’re excited to have you visit the Lodge on Helen. It's a three block walk to the center of town! This two level property is completely fenced in to keep your well trained and loved traveling companions safe (kids or dogs!) Welcome!!! Amenities: Fully stocked kitchen. The living room has a leather sofa and loveseat, comfortable chairs a faux fireplace, and a flat screen tv with DVD player. The master bedroom has a beautiful log king sized bed set as well as a Pack 'n Play in the closet. There’s a full bath off the master bedroom. There is another full newly remodeled bathroom between the secondary bedroom (queen bed) and living room. The huge downstairs room has a double and three log twin bed and lots of room for sleeping bags. Get some fresh air on the front porch while relaxing on the rocking chairs or locally made log furniture. The property is surrounded by a chain link fence with plenty of room for the kids and dogs to run and tables and chairs for outdoor dining as well as charcoal barbeques.

This time of year the hiking is amazing; just walk up Walnut, turn right on Linnet and just keep walking. Or, when you get to the Methodist Camp, walk through the camp, hugging the mountain, until you get to the levee and then follow the sounds of the stream of melted snow. You'll find a variety of beautiful pine cones and collect some rare actinolite, a mineral only found in a few places on earth! You might see a deer on your hike. Let the dogs run loose and enjoy their freedom on the levee.

Play board games, read or bird watch. On Memorial Day weekend walk around town to the over 100 yard sales! The third weekend of August is the popular antique auto show. You'll also get your fill of lemonade and cookie stands that abound in the summer!

We just added a super sized charcoal barbeque. Bring your coals, meat or tofu burgers and grill up a storm! There is also the amazing log furniture outside on which you can enjoy your outdoor meals.

Walk to town (a 7 minute walk) and do a little shopping. You'll find restaurants, gift shops, antique stores, market, bakeries, and ski shops.

Sign up for Big Pines Zipline tour! It's an amazing four hour canopy tour adventure through the treetops just two miles away from the cabin (check their website and book ahead). It's one of the most exhilarating activities I've ever done! It's a three mile drive to Mountain High Ski Resort. A few more miles and you'll be at Grassy Hollow visitor center. The Pacific Crest Trail will host thousands of hikers walking from Mexico all the way to Canada!

Mountain High is a quick drive up the highway for skiing, snowboarding and tubing in the winter. Mountain biking (my husband loves the challenging trails) and hiking in that area is a real treat in the Spring and Summer. Motorcyclists love Hwy 2. My husband swears it's some of the premier riding in the nation. Wrightwood really is an amazing, relaxing vacation spot!

The kitchen is fully stocked and is ready for some of your fabulous cooking! There is a market in town, Jenson's (it’s pricey, but well stocked) where you're able to purchase any food you might need. However, if you want a break from cooking there are some wonderful restaurants in town. The Blue Ridge Inn is the nicest if you're looking for prime rib or fresh seafood. Most of their entrees are around $20 with salad and fresh bread (if you go there, please tell them Arlene sent you; I used to waitress there!). Their pumpkin bread is amazing! There's also a Mexican Restaurant, Mexico Lindo (prices around $7-12 each) that has excellent food. For breakfast, the Evergreen cafe has fabulous pancakes and the Village Grind has delicious breakfasts as well (they also have 24/7 WIFI service) and often has live music going. The Grizzly Cafe, on Hwy 2, has the best sweet potato fries around and very good sandwiches. You will love the lodge motif! Mile High Pizza has a great variety of pizzas and other Italian dishes (and they deliver!). Ask them about their $3.00 off a large counter coupon. I guarantee you, you won't starve in Wrightwood!

I will be happy to provide any additional information you might need. Please do not hesitate to contact me either by phone or email. corte.arlene@gmail.com or 760.792.8267

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks again. It is so great to find an owner who is pet friendly and



has a quiet place in the mountains. Ann and Nora also loved the



location of the cabin and the quiet atmosphere. We sat out on the



porch and just rocked and listened to the trees talking...

We purchased the lodge with the intention to live in it. Until we can do that we would like to open it up for others to enjoy!

Arlene Corte purchased this lodge in 2014

We raised our girls in Wrightwood and I taught at the local elementary school for years. Wrightwood has a very special place in our hearts.

We love the lodge for many reasons. I really like that the main floor has everything on it (easy on the knees!). The dormer room is downstairs and is a perfect place for the kids or a second family to stay. My husband and I just remodeled the guest bathroom and it is fantastic! A local craftsman built all the beautiful outdoor log furniture. The lodge is right across the street from another cabin I manage (393373) so when large groups come up for weddings they can rent both cabins for convenience. All in all, this is an amazing lodge.

LOVED this cabin

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect cabin for our family birthday celebrations! We had a party of 6 and as indicated this cabin could easily accommodate 10 people. The layout is great the living area was perfect for congregating after dinner and to play games. Arlene is an absolute pleasure to deal with. We also loved that the cabin is walking distance to town! The kids enjoyed the Navitat zip lining and they highly recommend it. We will be back.

Thank you!!

Owner's Response: I am always happy to hear when families are making new memories in Wrightwood; I'm so happy you were able to celebrate your birthday there. The location is one of my favorite parts about the cabin, too. My husband and I love to walk into town at night for dinner with our flashlight and gaze up at the millions of stars. I will send you specials now that you are a "preferred" guest. Thanks again for your patronage!

My family and I had a great time in this cabin. It was very clean - a big plus. We loved the openness between the living room and kitchen - everyone felt like they were together no matter what they were doing. The downstairs was a huge, pleasant surprise - would be great for older kids to have their own space. The two bedrooms were very large. The cabin is comfortable and nicely decorated. The one thing I think it needs is a wood burning stove (since I don't think you can add an actual fireplace). Given the weather we had that would have been going all the time and is just something you expect in the mountains. The yard was nice, but again, given our weather we did not spend time outside other than to build a snowman and take walks.

We would rent again and recommend to others.

Owner's Response: I love the openness of this cabin, too; there is lots of room inside for everyone to congregate. I agree, a fireplace or woodstove would be a nice addition on cold and snowy days. You lucked out in the weather department being in Wrightwood during one of our few snowstorms this year. The drought in California hit us hard, too. Thanks again for your visit!

Great getaway weekend!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was everything I expected it to be. The dormer downstairs was perfect for my daughter and her family. We had a little trouble with one of the doors getting stuck, but a call to Arlene and she had a handyman up within minutes. I would definitely stay here again. My grandson said we had to make this an annual tradition. We ate breakfast at the Grizzly Café on our way home and he decided that also had to be part of the tradition!

Great Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the cabin and it was just right for our family of nine! No snow but we had a great time anyway. We hiked, shopped around town, played games and had great meals at the Grizzly Bear and at the Evergreen. We also Barbecued meals at the cabin. I would recommend this property for any family.

Excellent cabin in Wrightwood!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our vacation and can't wait to go back up! We went up for my daughter's 9th birthday with a bunch of friends to go snow tubing at Mountain High. Although there was no snow at Mountain High for Tubing (Ski Slopes were fine) there was still so much to do and the kids had a blast!!!

The house has a super great layout. The Kitchen, dining room, and living room have an open plan so you can cook, dine, watch TV or simply hang. There is a big master bedroom with a large attached bath, and the 2nd bedroom upstairs is large and next to the main bathroom upstairs. The 3rd Bedroom is really an entire floor that is kid heaven! All 6 kids played downstairs - they all had their own bed (and I think there was room for more!) They were so happy - and so were we!

We happened to up on a weekend when the owner/manager Arlene was also in town as well. Boy did we luck out! She lead our large group on a fabulous hike blocks from the home. Arlene used to be a teacher so we had her added wisdom as she pointed out local rocks, tree's, and a small stream (she even managed to find us a small patch of the elusive snow!) Our kids went wild and came home with a bunch of treasures.

There is a small deck out front for coffee in the morning and star gazing at night.

The town has great restaurants - a nice vintage store - the pizza place delivers quickly and it has a great grocery store nearby. Everything you need for a quick get away!

Have Fun!

Owner's Response: It was so much fun meeting you all. Taking your girls and their friends out for the hike made me remember how much I loved teaching. It brought back lots of memories of when I would take my students up to the levee to do all the exploring that we did!
I'm so glad that the cabin worked well for your family and friends and I really hope that you will all be able to come up again.
