When looking for the perfect place to raise a family, we chose Lake Arrowhead for its fresh air, friendly people, natural beauty, and close proximity to everything Southern California has to offer.
Thirty years later, our children are grown and have moved to other cities, states, and countries. We find ourselves with this beautiful home in the mountains and no one to share it with. That is why we decided to share it with you through Vacation Rentals by Owner.
It is our hope that you will find Old North Shore Lodge the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty that is abundant in this spectacular mountain escape. Old North Shore Lodge is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood close to the lake.
We welcome families, retreats, church groups, and friends looking to spend some quality time together. Our home and neighborhood is not conducive to loud parties.
Enjoy your visit to Old North Shore Lodge!

Your stay at the Old North Shore Lodge will allow you limited lake access to one of the most beautiful private alpine lakes in Southern California. Hike (or stroll) the well maintained trails, swim in the lake, fish from the private fishing dock, enjoy the two private beach clubs, or just relax at lakefront Peninsula Park. (Boat launching is not available to guests on Lake Arrowhead).
This was a great home for our family Xmas. The home was clean and well appointed. The owners were excellent to work with and very responsive to our needs. Being so close to the lake made for some nice walks and sightseeing. We have already recommend the home to a friend who we know will enjoy the property.
Wonderful home! Super clean. The house has a great kitchen with everything you would ever need! My family loved seating in the living room with the french doors open and enjoying the deck and view! If we come back to Lake Arrowhead we would love to stay in this house again!!
Very nice house. Very nice kitchen, clean rooms and beautiful balconies where we can sit amongst the treetops. It is a drive to get to the beach, and there are a lot of stairs in the house. But overall a joy.
We (my husband, our 2 kiddos, our two friends and their 2 kiddos, and me), had the pleasure of staying in the Murray's home for four incredibly beautiful days, over the 4th of July weekend. I can't begin to say just how lovely and comfortable their home is! As soon as we stepped in the door, we felt right at home. The furnishings are very beautiful! The decor is perfectly done, without being too "themey" (is that a word? Haha)! Adored the antique pieces, particularly the claw foot bathtub. Kitchen is fully stocked and well-appointed, enough so that I made banana bread! The grill was perfect for a barbq.. The balconies were so wonderful, especially in the early morning relaxing with coffee and tea, listening to the many birds a'chirping! (Yes, coffee and espresso maker)! Oh, and the beds! They are sooo comfy with memory foam type mattress! I actually slept 7 hours straight through, (which is not typical of my insomniac self)!
There are various ALA trails you can take a hike on. Be careful, though, of unknowingly trespassing on some residents property (oops)! The neighborhood couldn't be any more gorgeous than it is.. Super friendly people abound, they obviously love their little neck o' the woods. Jensens Grocery store is only 5 minutes away, in case you need to grab eggs to make said banana bread!
Fireworks show was amazing, as we were able to have front row seats on the lake, accessed by a short walk on one of the trails.
Mr. Murray was so very nice and accommodating and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We'll definitely be back! Thank you so much, Murray's!!
Better even than the photos! Wonderful gourmet kitchen and good views of lake from the living room and master bedroom patios. Gated community makes for a really quiet area. Home is very well maintained, furniture in great shape, and owner was caring and terrific to work with. Hope to be back. Would definitely recommend!!
I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home last Thanksgiving with my family. The home is beautiful, spacious, spotless and is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Lake Arrowhead. We selected the home because of the location, right down the street from my sister's home. Everything we could need was supplied. If you like to cook, the kitchen is a delight. Beautiful views from the front of the home. One afternoon while sitting on the porch my son said he felt he was in Vermont. We had a view of the lake and the trees were gorgeous reds, yellows and oranges. I would highly recommend this home. You won't be disappointed.I might note this home has lots of steps and not ideal for anyone with disabilities or very young children. Mr. Murray was very easy to work with.

In the winter time, you will find that Snow Valley Ski Resort is close by and offers all levels of skiing from beginning to advanced. There is also a “tubing” park as well as countless locations for snow play. If you are traveling up in the winter time, it is highly recommended that you carry chains, even if you own a 4 wheel drive.

Old North Shore Road crosses State Hwy 173, which is one of the first roads to be plowed and is continually maintained during snow storms. For those reasons, access in and out of Old North Shore Road is excellent even in bad weather.
