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. email@example.com or 760.792.8267

About Arlene Corte
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
Why Arlene Corte chose Wrightwood
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.
What makes this lodge unique
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.
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...
