NOW THE LONG VERSION:

2800 SF Lake Arrowhead Cabin, 3 BR, 2 Bath

Includes beach pass to Burnt Mill & Tavern Bay and use of a Kayak!!!

The Dragon Cabin, once owned by Oscar/Emmy winning rich and famous is located in Lake Arrowhead which is a private lake in the stunning San Bernardino National Forest and is called the “Alps of Southern California” and is known as the best secret in Southern California!

OK, so you are wondering, why the Dragon Cabin—right? Firstly built in 1960 by the famous Italian operatic soprano singer Amelita Galli-Curci, and soon after purchased by Oscar and Emmy-winning Carmen Dragon, conductor, composer, arranger and father of Daryl Dragon the Captain of “The Captain and Tennille”. The “Dragon Cabin” stayed in the Dragon family for thirty plus years!

So welcome to the Dragon Cabin where you will be surrounded by the beauty of the natural forest full of pines, cedar, dogwood and abundant wildlife. The two-story cabin is in a park like setting with 2 picnic tables, wrap around decking along with 5 seating areas (weather permitting) viewing the forest and in the distance Mt. Baldy. Wow, the sunsets over Mt. Baldy are beautiful! Who knows you may even feel compelled to write a song or two during your stay while swinging in the hammock!

When you are not relaxing at the cabin during your vacation in the mountains, the lake is just a few minutes drive down the hill, or you can hike down the hill for the more adventurous. Weather permitting, you can walk around the lake at the Villlage and enjoy the views. Did I mention you have use to our 2 seated kayaks during your stay with our private beach pass!

Family or friends that are not into the many wonderful year round outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, water sports, horseback riding, and skiing (did you know Snow Valley Ski resort is only 13 miles from the Dragon Cabin) may just want to relax in the peacefulness of the Dragon Cabin and not leave our private community unless you like shopping! Yes, there is great shopping in Lake Arrowhead Village just a mile away!

Lake Arrowhead Village is just a few minutes away from our home offering great shopping (even factory outlet shopping), dining, 40 summer concerts, a yearly Oktoberfest, and a year round paddle sightseeing boat ride around the lake. All four seasons offer activities for all ages at the Lake Arrowhead Village.

Description of the Dragon Cabin:

Do you like fireplaces? If so, you will be pleased as we have 4 fireplaces, one being an indoor BBQ! We will provide instructions on each fireplace along with supplying firewood to keep you warm and cozy on those chilly nights.

The enormous dining room with forest views has the original knotty pine cathedral ceiling and oaks floors with seating up to 9 and has a fireplace that works as an indoor BBQ (no firewood). Why BBQ in the cold when you can be cozy in doors in the cooler months? Just bring your charcoal to cook your meals on the indoor grill. Great memories can be made in this room next to the galley kitchen set up for making snacks to gourmet meals. We also have a 32 inch flat screen and blue ray player in the dining room for your enjoyment.

The 100% knotty pine living room with 17 foot cathedral ceiling with wrap around windows viewing the forest sunsets with a fireplaces that roars. The living room is set for reading and small chat and of course enjoying the crackling of the fire and viewing nothing but trees!

The family/media room has a large stone fireplace designed by Carmen Dragon and where he played and wrote his music (don’t be surprised if lyrics just start flowing from within). This room is set up for fun, noise, music, 46'' flat screen, blue ray DVD, poker, bumper pool, foos ball, poker table, dancing, etc!

Your big decision for the day will be what room should I have my roaring fire in! Although if you are too tired after a long day of activity to make that big decision then the decision is made for you—there is a fireplace in the master suite with a comfy queen bed as well on the lower level!

There are two more bedrooms on the main floor, one with a queen rustic pine headboard, the other bedroom with a four-poster full trundle with a pull out twin if needed.

Both bathrooms have been remodeled for a clean and comfortable experience. The main floor bath has a new vanity and the floors are back to the original pine with the original walk-in shower. The lower level bath is fully remodeled and has a 4 bear claw tub with view of Mt. Baldy and a walk-in shower with two shower heads and 2 vanities.

Wireless WiFi, Dish for TV, and Verizon phone service is provided free of charge for local and long distance within the US.

Please bring your own music device, iphone, ipod etc for your music enjoyment as we do have 2 hook ups for devices. We do not have a CD player.

Check-Out time is at 11am and Check-In time is at 4pm (early check-in/late check-out may be available if we don't have back to back guests).

Welcome to Lake Arrowhead, the Alps and Jewel of Southern California!!!

About The Owner

We love to travel and have stayed at many wonderful VRBO homes and almost never stay at hotels. We are offering the Dragon Cabin as a vacation rental for your enjoyment!!!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2012

Why The Owner chose Lake Arrowhead

We love the mountains, being near water and close to the ski resort for year round fun. Our property is very private, nested in the forest with enormous pines yet close to Lake Arrowhead Village and 13 miles to the ski resort. The best of both worlds!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Privacy, on a 1/2 acre of land, abundant wildlife viewing, with a vintage mountain cabin feel, and updated bathrooms providing our guests with comfort & cleanliness. Exclusive beach pass to Burnt Mill and Tavern Bay beaches--Lake Arrowhead is a private lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Debra and Jeff were extremely hospitable and the cabin was gorgeous. Great location and perfect set up. We had everything we needed (including a great kayak) for our short stay.

Everything at Dragon Cabin was exceptional. Sitting by the fire during the day, and choosing a movie for the evening's entertainment was wonderfully relaxing. Definitely will return and recommend a stay to my friends!

We loved it.

  • 5 of 5
My wife, I, and our little silky terrier had an amazing weekend at the Dragon Cabin. We kept the fireplace lit and spend the weekend reading books, relaxing by the fire, taking walks around the lake, and watching old movies in the den. This place was seriously amazing, and before we left, we were plotting our next return. Can't wait to come back!!

Sunsets over Mt. Baldy with snow capped mountains!

  • 5 of 5
This property is a private estate where there are vintage cabins and a very charming place to be. The Village is less than a mile away which was nice to be so close. The Dragon Cabin is relaxing, fun, in a great location/very private and clean. The kitchen has all needed to cook and prep meals for the indoor fireplace/BBQ. This indoor BBQ made the best meals ever, better than my 1k BBQ at home! The dining room is open stye to the kitchen and very large--enough room for our group of 9 to gather around and watch the cook BBQ our dinners while we played games listened to music or watched TV, what a nice place to be. Off of the dining room is the living room viewing large trees (all the rooms have beautiful tree views), comfy seating, vintage style, while cozy by the fire, a great lodge like room to relax in and have a few drinks. Off the living room is the deck where we watched the sun set over Mt. Baldy! The lighting through the trees was amazing as the sun sets. You can see much of the property from the large wrap around deck and nice to watch the kids play horseshoes and swing. There is also an outdoor game checker table to play which we enjoyed. There is a media room dowstairs with a DVD library, foosball, bumper pool, poker table and a fireplace where we all had loads of fun. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice bedding/towels, handmade soaps too! We will be back for ski season for sure!

Enjoyable mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with VRBO, and what a success. The property was exactly as presented, and Debra, the owner, was wonderful answering all my text questions over every detail before we committed. She sent very useful information about hiking and restaurants tailored to our needs. The home was comfortable with classic mountain charm, and Debra stages it to feel more like a B&B with her personal attention to detail and comfort. The only negative for me was the sound of traffic from the patio, but this wasn't an issue for my husband. Given the secluded setting and privacy, it's a minor complaint. It's a dog-friendly home, and of the choices in the same price range, this was the best choice for our stay. Lovely home, accessible owner, great setting!

Owner's Response: We love to pay extra attention to all the details for our guests including the furry ones! We have focused on maintaining the vintage mountain charm of the cabin when deciding on improvements--our bathrooms have been redone with with this in mind. So happy you enjoyed and hope to have you back soon. Happy travels!

Loved the Dragon!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in late September and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The cabin is spacious, and well laid out. This cabin is not your typical bare minimum rental. It is wonderful stocked with everything you will need and more. The owner is a wonderful communicator, she made sure that we made it there easily, informed of us all the things we needed to know about the cabin and activities in the area. But in the end we just really enjoyed sitting out on the fabulous deck amongst the trees, and connecting with our friends. We loved eating breakfast outside at the picnic table, and watching movies in the great downstairs game TV room. A very warm and welcoming cabin. We will definitely be staying again :)

Our stay was everything we were promised in pictures and details. The cabin was beautiful, clean and the perfect location for a quiet, relaxing, fun family gathering. We loved the large dining room table,perfect for sharing a meal or playing games. We also enjoyed our morning cup of coffee sitting outside on the patio surrounded by the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest. I would definitely recommend a stay at this cabin for either friends or family coming together to enjoy Lake Arrowhead and it's beautiful surroundings. We would love to come back and enjoy this cabin and location again!
