Overview

Lake Arrowhead Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Just remodeled!!! Immaculate 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2, new deck.

ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/NO PETS/NO CHILDREN

The quaint “Hershey Cabin”, originally owned as a hunting cabin by members of the Hershey (chocolate) family, is nestled on the lush side of the mountains in historic Arrowhead Villas at an elevation of 5,500 feet. The Hershey Cabin’s location is a key feature, about 1 mile north of Hwy 18, and 1 mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village. This is not just another rental house, but rather a very quiet, inviting, immaculate and comfortable mountain cabin. We are looking to rent the cabin to one or two adults who will take care of the cabin, and enjoy it as much as we do. (If the Hershey Cabin is booked up you may want to rent our other (just listed) beautiful Lake Arrowhead property, the 'Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage'', on VRBO/HomeAway under #634044 or at http://www.vrbo.com/634044).

THEREFORE, THE CABIN MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. IF THIS IS NOT YOUR INTENT, IT IS NOT THE CABIN FOR YOU! WE CHARGE $50 AN HOUR FOR EXTRA CLEAN UP.

The Hershey Cabin is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away or for an extended vacation. Totally renovated in the second half of 2013, it has been tastefully decorated to make it the perfect retreat for a private getaway. Every piece of furniture and every art piece has been hand selected by the owners who have a passion for incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both antiques and modern furnishings, blended together, to provide the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth of a vintage Lake Arrowhead cabin.

During the renovation we basically went down to the studs and rebuilt much of the cabin from the ground up – yet we saved the original footprint and the rustic knotty pine and redwood inside, so that the cabin still has that old fashioned charm. The cabin has a beautifully hand crafted rock fireplace, massive pine mantel, porcelain/slate tile floors with traditional wool rugs, central forced air heating, dual pane windows and fully insulated walls and ceilings. Above the fireplace is a 40 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV (we have Charter WiFi and Netflix), along with a DVD player. The living room is a perfect place to snuggle up by the fire and read or watch a movie.

The bathroom is brand new with a tile and frameless glass shower and granite counter. The kitchen has been redone with gorgeous granite counter tops, new cupboards and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home. We completely updated the electrical system and lighting, replaced all pipes and drains, and put in a new 40 gallon water heater.

The bedroom has knotty pine walls and ceiling, and the view out the windows makes you feel as if you are nestled in a tree house. The bed has a new memory foam mattress along with 600 thread count sheets and beautiful cozy bedding. Outside the bedroom is a brand new wrap-around deck, with 2 bistro tables and 4 chairs.

On the outside we built a retaining wall which allows easy access parking, concrete steps up to the front door along with a wrought iron banister. The cabin is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find at night, as it has a lighted address. It is surrounded by beautiful Silver Tip firs, Nordman firs, pines, Japanese and Princeton Gold maples and cedar trees, along with a nicely landscaped yard. The siding of the cabin is classic craftsman style shake.

The Lake Arrowhead area is a little hidden gem, with a quaint village, dinner theater (Tudor house), movie theater and wonderful local restaurants. If you are looking to relieve stress and just relax and have fun, this is just the place. The cabin has an extremely warm and inviting feel to it. Lake Arrowhead celebrates all four seasons - this is an all seasons vacation rental with warm summer days, fall colors, snow in the winter, and a beautiful spring.

CLICK THE GOLD 'BOOK IT' BUTTON TO BOOK YOUR VACATION AT THE 'HERSHEY CABIN'. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU HAVE TO BOOK AT LEAST 5 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF YOUR TRIP.

We look forward to having you as our guests at the Hershey Cabin.

About Paul and Janice

My wife and I were married 39 years ago. We love going on vacations, especially to the mountains - both of our grandparents owned cabins in either Big Bear or Crestline. We recently retired - my wife was an elementary school teacher (she now does interior redesign). I was a security consultant (I do property management on the side). We love the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, biking etc.

Paul and Janice purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Paul and Janice chose Lake Arrowhead

We were visiting Lake Arrowhead Village getting an ice tea at MacDonald's, when our son spotted an ad for a one bedroom cabin at a local realtors. We weren't even looking for a cabin but soon we had bought one. After checking out over 50 cabins we chose this one because we liked the old cabin feel, the quiet location, and the lush trees on the property.

The property, which was originally owned by members of the Hershey (chocolate) Family as a simple hunting cabin, was in major need of repair. My wife and I spent the summer and fall remodeling and renovating the cabin from the ground up. We saved the redwood and knotty pine interiors which give it the classic 'cabin' feel.

We also own and rent out the 'BURNT MILL CANYON COTTAGE' in Lake Arrowhead. You can find the cottage by searching VRBO or HomeAway for property #634044.

What makes this cabin unique

At about 1/2 the price of a room at Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa you get your own, gorgeous, immaculate, quiet, private one bedroom cabin. The kitchen is completely equipped with new dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc. The appliances are all new, including the dishwasher and washer and dryer. For those of you who are skiers, we have a ski rack in the back yard. If you just want to sit back and read, we have all sorts of magazines for your reading pleasure.

For those of you who like to hike, we have 3 books on hiking in the San Bernardino Mountains, as well as maps and other info.

Upon arrival, you will find a welcome basket including Hershey's chocolates, coffee, tea etc. We have a great house keeper who keeps the cabin immaculate, and we also have a wonderful neighbor who checks out the cabin and makes sure it is ready for you when you come up.

Compare our features to the following Lake Arrowhead hotels and you will see that we beat them across the board in price, privacy, size, quality and features:

Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa,

Saddleback Inn,

Arrowhead Pine Rose Cabins,

Tree Top Inn,

Fleur De Lac European Inn,

Romantique Lake View Lodge,

BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED FOR THE HOLLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were excited to see the Hershey Cabin all lit up with Christmas lights when we arrived on Monday evening. The cabin was decorated nicely both inside and outside for the season. We had a wonderful time at the cozy cabin, and especially enjoyed sitting if front of the fireplace. Everything in the cabin was immaculate and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. We even got a dusting of snow, which made it look like a wonderland outside. We will definitely be coming back to the Hershey Cabin.

Warm and Cozy!

My husband and I stayed at the Hershey Cabin on Thanksgiving weekend. The cabin is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils and everything you'd need to cook a meal. The bed is so comfortable! And the location is perfect--tucked away among the trees, yet close enough to the village and lake. You won't go wrong booking this cabin!

Perfect romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came for a little getaway to celebrate his birthday. It was absolutely perfect!! We loved the cabin, especially the fireplace. The cabin was recently renovated, and was super spacious for two. It was so nice to make breakfast together before hiking The Pinnacles. We loved our stay at the Hershey Cabin, and we are hoping to plan another weekend soon.
Thank you for making my Husband's birthday memorable!

My partner and I spent six nights here and we can't say enough good things about the Hershey Cabin. It has been recently and fully renovated; from the interior aesthetics and beautiful tongue-and-groove paneling to the well-appointed kitchen, no detail has been spared. The bedroom has treehouse views (elegant treehouse) with a glimpse of the lake, a very comfortable bed and plenty of storage for clothes. The living area is cozy and warm and the gas fireplace makes romance at a whim (safely during fire season). Very conveniently located in between Highway 18 and Lake Arrowhead village. We will definitely return to this lovely retreat in the woods!

Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway and we found it in the Hershey cabin. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Someone must be a technical writer because the instructions from how to use the fireplace to the TV are written clearly and easy to follow.We enjoy home cooking more then restaurant food. The kitchen is fully stocked and a delight to use. We enjoyed relaxing on the leather sofas and watching movies on Netflix. The queen sized bed is the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on away from home. We spent our days walking around the lake, my husband played 9 holes of golf, and we loved getting a coffee in Arrowhead Village. Our last night we went to the Tudor House down the street. A 60s style band was playing and we had a lot of fun. The locals are all friendly and warm. It really was a perfect getaway in a perfect cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy - my wife did the instructional write-up to try to make it easy for guests to operate everything. We also love going to the Tudor House for food and entertainment - a picture of the original building taken in 1928 is on the living room wall. Thanks for visiting!

Arrowhead Villas (the small historic area where our cabin is located) was originally founded by the infamous mobster “Bugsy Siegel”, of Las Vegas fame. Bugsy Siegel came up with the idea of opening his exclusive members-only resort in the late 1920’s, after realizing that Lake Arrowhead was quickly becoming the new playground for the Hollywood elite. The property, which cost whopping $1.3 million to construct, opened on July 4, 1929. At the time, the resort was comprised of three individual buildings consisting of a private gambling club, a brothel, a speakeasy, luxury guest quarters, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis courts, a barbershop, a private gas station, horse stables, and a highly-coveted supply of artesian well water – which was used in the making of moonshine.

The resort’s former Clubhouse, which housed the property’s private gambling club and speakeasy, is now known as “The Tudor House”. At the time that Bugsy managed the property there was a secret underground tunnel which connected the Clubhouse to the Bracken Fern Manor (similar “Tudor” style structure across the street), and was used to allow male guests to travel to the brothel undetected.

The Tudor House is now a wonderful dinner theater/ supper club/ concert hall etc. The Tudor House is located at 800 Arrowhead Villa Road, about a half mile from our cabin.
