Overview

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. I am honored to have had the lodge in the annual Holiday Home Tour. We take a lot of pride in the Lodge and ask that if you are looking for a quiet, clean and lovely respite, keep reading. If, however, you are disrespectful, please do not consider us. The Lodge is only 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) safe. Amenities: I am putting a lot of effort into purchasing USA built furniture for the whole cabin. At this point I'm at about 90%! We have a fully stocked kitchen. The living room has two seating areas: a Basset leather sofa and chair as well as two vintage North Carolina built sofas with lodge style upholstery. There is also a faux fireplace (Canada)and a flat screen tv (no cable or satellite) with DVD player. The master bedroom has a beautiful log king sized bed (Big Bear) set as well as a Pack & 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 (Vintage USA) and three log twin bed (two hand built from Edilwild one from Big Bear), a full sized futon sofa and lots of room for sleeping bags. Get some fresh air on the front porch while relaxing on the rocking chairs or Wrightwood 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. The back yard has a new deck with a custom built ski fence (I am the brains, my husband is the brawn!).

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. I have a great friend up the street who will be happy to lead you on a hike and tell you all about what you are seeing.

Play board games, read (I have dozens of books at the lodge. If you start one, take it home with you!) 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 is one of the most exhilarating activities I have ever done! It is 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, Jensons (it’s pricey, but well stocked) where you are able to purchase any food you might need. However, if you want a break from cooking there are some wonderful restaurants in town. Many of them are dog friendly (DF). Start your day at Cinnamons Bakery...cannot be beat! The Blue Ridge Inn is the nicest if you are looking for prime rib or fresh seafood. Most of their entrees are around $25 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 is 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 (DF) 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 (DF) has a great variety of pizzas and other Italian dishes (and they deliver!). Ask them about their $3.00 off a large counter coupon. The Yodeler is a bar/restaurant that is also DF, dog friendly. I guarantee you, you will not 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

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! My goal is to have you feel like it's your cabin away from home. I will try to accommodate you to the best of my ability; I take a lot of pride in great customer service.

Arlene Corte purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Arlene Corte chose Wrightwood

We raised our girls (who grew up to be an FBI Special Agent and a Registered nurse) in Wrightwood and I taught at the local elementary school for years. Wrightwood has a very special place in our hearts. I love the location as it's just a short walk to town and fabulous hiking trails as well as on a quiet street.

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. A new deck and amazing ski fence is just outside the dormer. Both bathrooms are newly remodeled and fantastic! A local craftsman built all the beautiful outdoor log furniture. Most of the furniture is made in the USA and I take a lot of pride in that. 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...

Beautiful lodge for Families

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful, and beautiful. Felt like we were at home. It was nice that the owner was super awesome as well. It helped make our stay comfortable. The cabin was very clean, and well kept. It's decorated very nice. We love the table to sign, and the Ski fence. We made tons of memories with our 3 sons on our stay, and hope to be back soon. Thank you again Arlene

Owner's Response: I hope I will be able to find where you and your family "signed" the coffee table with the old printing tools and hammer! I always enjoy looking for the latest "signatures." I'm glad to hear that you and your family had a good time at the lodge; it's our pride and joy! I will be adding you to the "preferred guest" list and you will be receiving great offers in the near future. Thanks again for your visit.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This cute cabin worked very well for our extended family of 9 (grandparents, parents and children). The location was perfect for skiing and being close to town. Grandpa, who uses a walker, was easily able to access the cabin. The cute decorations and antiques throughout the cabin were a great touch. We felt welcomed when we arrived to discover tiny sparkling lights strung along a bough over the front door, a cute tin snowman that was lit from the inside, and several small lit Christmas trees in the living area.

Every room was very clean and well appointed. Playing games in the living area or at the large dining table was something we all enjoyed in this cozy environment.

This weekend was a celebration of Grandma's 70th birthday...what a great place to celebrate. Thank you to Arlene for making this weekend such a great experience. We hope to be able to spend another weekend at this cabin soon.

Owner's Response: Many a birthday has been celebrated at the lodge...if only the walls could talk! I had the ramp to the lodge built specifically to accommodate those with walkers and wheelchairs; I'm so glad to hear it worked well for you. The decorating of the lodge is such fun and I am always happy to hear that my guests enjoy what I've done to the place. You took exceptional care of the lodge and are now on my preferred guest list~~I will be sending you some great specials. We look forward to future visits from your family.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for my family of 6 and my in-laws who were traveling with us. It was very clean, close to the slopes, and had a spacious sitting area for us to play games, eat dinner and sip hot chocolate after a fun day skiing. My in-laws walked to town for coffee before we woke up (they were on EST), and the kids hung out downstairs in the dorm room reading and playing while we slept in. Arlene was extremely helpful and accommodating, and we look forward to coming back!

Owner's Response: I was confident your kids were going to love the dormer room...something about having a little privacy that kids love! I'm also glad to hear that the lodge worked well for you all. We take a lot of pride in the lodge and strive to make it the "happiest place in Wrightwood!" I hope you all had a chance to "sign" the coffee table with the printing tools and hammer; I love reading the messages left behind. We look forward to hosting you and your family again sometime. You are now on my "preferred guest list" and I will send you special offers when they are available. Shalom!
