Crestline House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Game/6th Sleep Room, 4 Baths (Sleeps 10), 3 Decks

WE ARE RENTING ONLY 6 WEEKS INTO THE FUTURE AT THIS TIME DUE TO THE PROPERTY BEING FOR SALE. Rates are $375/night, Two night minimum. Week long rates are Friday to Friday $2275/week ($325/night). Holiday rates may differ, check for Rates by particular holiday. Summer is three night minimum. Check in is 4PM and Check out is 11AM. We personally meet you at property for check in and out. Maximum 10 renters (including adults and any children over 2 years old.)

Our majestic 4,400 square foot lodge is located out on a point of land along the 'Rim of the World' in Crestline, California. The lodge is surrounded by the San Bernardino National forest. From our mile-high elevation, you have to see our breathtaking 180 degree view to believe it. Enjoy the view from one of the 3 decks, in the comfort of our beautiful hot tub, from our sky chairs or from the comfort of one of our master bedrooms.

The lodge features 5 bedrooms and a sixth sleeping area that can be made private.

Of the 5 bedrooms, there are 3 master bedrooms, 2 with gas fireplaces, and all three have large TV screens for Netflix and DVDs, SORRY NO TV CHANNEL SERVICE. There are two additional large bedrooms that share a bath. Two bedrooms have private decks. All have been professionally decorated with Cal-king beds, elegant beddings, rugs and furnishings. This house used to be a bed and breakfast, the furnishings are all top notch and elegant.

The Brittany is our largest master bedroom featuring over 800 square feet of elegant living space. It features a private deck, indoor jacuzzi for 2, remote control fireplace, a 60' TV with surround sound (no TV channel service, just Netflix and DVDs), Cal-king canopy bed, a sitting area, elegant furniture and bedding, original artwork, and a large bathroom with a beautiful large marble shower which has 7 shower heads.

The Excelsior master bedroom, located on the ground floor, features a beautiful gas fireplace, elegant furnishings and lighting, including a Cal-king lighted bed, large screen TV with surround sound (sorry no TV service just Netflix and DVDs), and has an attached large bathroom with a separate shower and tub.

The Tresor master bedroom, located on the second floor, features a beautiful sculpted wood and marble tall Cal-King bed, elegant furnishings, a sitting area, a walk in closet, a full private bathroom, a large screen TV (sorry no TV channel service, just Neflix and DVDs), and a large private balcony with a spectacular view.

A central full bathroom (with 2 sinks) serves the other 2 large bedrooms which are located in a separated wing of the house.

The Pulaski room features 2 carved wooden 4-poster Pulaski beds (one Cal-king and one Queen), as well as other beautiful marble topped wooden furnishings and original artwork. With its 5 windows you can capture the warmth of the evening sun and enjoy a view of the forest while sitting under the custom wall art in the cozy window seat.

The Lilac room, with its beautiful lilac theme painted above the window seat, is one of our most charming rooms. The 5 windows capture the warmth of the morning sun and offer a beautiful forest view. The iron Cal-king bed lends a vintage feel to the peaceful aura of the room. The classic and unusual furnishings, sitting area and other original art complete the decor.

The Lodge's other amenities include a large kitchen with beautiful cabinets, granite counters, cooking island, double oven, jen-air indoor grill, window view of the forest, and 9 foot high pine ceilings. The kitchen comes well furnished for your use. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room that seats 10-12. The large-scale Italian villa furniture, wooden floors and Persian rugs, lend an elegance to your dining experience. Seating is also available at the kitchen counter for 4 or 5.

The formal living room features large, comfortable, elegant couch and chairs, and a well-lit game table. An armoire, located next to the game table, is loaded with games and puzzles for hours of family fun. A formal wood-burning stove, in it's black granite alcove, is the central focus of the room. The wide angle view from the two sliding glass doors is spectacular. After watching the sun set behind Mt. Baldy, Los Angeles skyscrapers, and Catalina Island, you might see the Disneyland fireworks popping up behind the Anaheim Hills. (No TV in Living Room).

The game room features a large pool table, a wet bar with stools, and unique counters hewn from local pine trees. There is a 32' TV for DVDs. (No TV channel service.) The decor is mountain pine with an antique cash register and lighted vintage beer signs. The view is unique for the house, with windows in three directions. The view from the window seat includes the city lights of Redlands and San Bernardino and from the sliding glass door you can see all the way to Catalina and the Los Angeles skyscrapers. This area can be closed off and converted to a private sleeping area with a queen sleeper couch and easy access to a full bathroom nearby.

The first thing you see when you pull up to the lodge is our water feature. You will enjoy the sound and sight of two lighted waterfalls cascading around opposite sides of a boulder, joining to pass under the bridge leading to the entrance of the lodge. (Sometimes we turn it off in the winter.) The water attracts wild animals and many varieties of birds which can be enjoyed while relaxing and having coffee on the porch. From the porch you can see the forest across the street.

The Lodge has quick access from almost anywhere in Southern California, with drive times of about 1.5 hours or less. Highway 18 provides four lanes up the mountain toward the cutoff 138 for Crestline, and the lodge is only 3 miles from the highway.

The Lodge is about 15 minutes from Lake Arrowhead and the Village Shops which include outlet stores and some great shopping deals. Lake Arrowhead has ice skating, movie theaters, great shopping, kids amusement park, summer concerts, restaurants, boating, and art galleries.

In the winter, skiing is only 19 miles away from the Lodge at Snow Summit, and in the summer our own Lake Gregory provides a variety of water activities including a great water slide, swimming, fishing, and boating. There are lots of other activities in the local mountains to enjoy like hiking and horseback riding, and a skate park and basketball courts.

All year round the local towns (Crestline/Lake Gregory, Lake Arrowhead, and Blue Jay) offer many unique shopping opportunities with lots of little antique shops to explore.

But if you prefer relaxing on your vacation (what a concept) we have a variety of cozy places to enjoy a good book (we have a few in our 'library') or a good movie (we have a large and growing collection of family-friendly DVDs, over 100 and growing).

Whatever your inclination, we are sure that you will love every moment of your stay at Sky Forest Lodge.

The minute we saw this place we loved it. The views are like nothing we had seen before. When you look out over the cities (from Redlands to LA and beyond) it just feels awesome, and when the lights come on at night you feel like you are flying (but you are free to move about the cabin). We love to sit in the hot tub in the morning at sunrise with coffee and sit in the quiet forest on the edge of the world and look at the majestic view.

Our full-time home is in La Verne, California. Lynn works as a therapist and Rich owns his own small business. Our drive up is only 50 minutes, so it is a quick, but wonderful get away for us.

Rich Sanders purchased this house in 2011

There is nothing like this house anywhere in the world. We get it all. Weather in the winter and a cool place to retreat to in the summer. With a warm breeze and the sound of a brook to fall asleep to in the summer.

For those that love wild animals we have lots of birds of various types visible from the lodge decks and porches. The water feature brings an abundance of animals including chipmunks, squirrels, and other small animals. But we have also seen bobcats, bears, coyotes and other larger animals.

Incredible View, Incredible Comfort

We had an amazing stay in this Crestline gem. And by we, I mean three families with small children. It was easy sleeping on the ridiculously comfortable beds in their very quiet bedrooms. The bar area was an excellent gathering spot as well as having some of the best views in the house- nighttime was spectacular. The view looked just like the famous scenes from ET. The kitchen was nice and large, and had plates and bowls ready to use, which made it easy to cook for and feed such a big (and sometimes rambunctious) group. And there's a little woodsy area across the street that gave the kids some room to run around and explore. During the daytime, it was nice to sit out on the deck and watch the hangliders and paragliders gliding right over our heads. A very nice place to stay. Only drawback was the TV situation, there is Netflix, which is great, but no basic cable for basic channels. Then again, going way up to this house is about getting away, so maybe the lack of TV is actually a bonus.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We appreciate all your comments.
We do try to be clear in our listing that we have no TV service other than Netflix. We do have about 100 DVDs to borrow also. Some folks brought their computers and wiring and knew the right hook ups to watch sports games over the holidays through using the TVs as monitors, so I guess it is possible if you know how to do it. We think it is best to just get away from it all and have fun.

The view of this house is absolutely amazing. It feels like you're on an airplane when you look out to the view. The house is very nicely upgraded and uses very classic and elegant furnishings. Will definiltey come back. A couple of items I'd like to point out just so travelers know (that's different than other vacation houses I've stayed at) is bath towels are not provided (unless you pay extra), you need to bring extra kitchen paper towels, the kitchen lacks a few items that I'm used to seeing at other rentals (sugar, plastic wrap, sandwich bags, low on salt). I think other renters get them and either they leave the items or you have to get your own, so the owners probably don't know what's available. Cannot use the washer and dryer (not an issue since we only stayed 2 nights).

Owner's Response: Thank you Tina for your nice review. We will be seeing you again next month!
We do try to be very very clear and up front about what we do and do not provide in our website info and our 3 page check in email. When we were a bed and breakfast we provided towels, but with 6 large beds and running and washing everything everything ourselves, we had to set a limit or we could not keep the price down. Most do not mind bringing their own towels. We do provide 3 rolls of paper towels for a 2 day stay, but suggest renters bring extra beyond that. They are located on counter and under sink. Perhaps this renter did not see under sink. We provide about a dozen spices and 3 kinds of salt grinders, the main salt ran out for this renter and we have replaced a full one. We try to be clear about all we provide in the kitchen, and consumables like wrap are not provided, though we have many plastic bags and jars and plastic containers for food storage in a cupboard. When renters stay for a week or more, we make the washer and dryer available, but we do not for 2 day stay. We again are clear about that on the website. I do encourage renters to read all the details and call us with any questions. We do provide things like a baby portable crib and a changing table, games, BBQ with extra propane, etc.
thank you for another 5 star rating!

The home was in perfect condition and clean!!! We absolutely loved the pool room and the huge dinning room table, it was perfect for us! Unfortunately in both of the upstairs bathroom tubs the water didn't stay warm enough to fill up the tub (tub filled up maybe 30% when the water started to run cool) but the jacuzzi outside on the deck solved that problem! Beautiful views and nicely decorated! Beautiful furniture as well! Thank you very much for allowing us to use your home!

Owner's Response: I spoke with Amie about her review here. We have not had any other complaints in a year about water temperature. I know the jacuzzi tub in the Brittany is very large and perhaps our two water heaters could not keep up with the flow for the tubs. There were no complaints about showers keeping warm enough.
