Lake Arrowhead Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

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.

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.

SORRY - WE DO NOT RENT TO SMOKERS AND WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS ON THE PROPERTY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE DUE TO FAMILY ALLERGIES.

We also rent out another Lake Arrowhead property that we just purchased, the 'Burnt Mill Canyon Lodge', VRBO or HomeAway #634044 - you may want to check it out!

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 ON VRBO OR THE 'BOOK IT NOW' BUTTON ON HOME AWAY 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 an accounting manager (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 LODGE' in Lake Arrowhead. You can find the lodge 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.

If you would like to use the facilities at Lake Arrowhead Spa & Resort, we can sell you Day Passes for $15 each. With the Day Passes, you can use the hotels private beach, pool, Fitness Facility (including as many Fitness Classes as you wish), Jacuzzi, etc. Let us know if you would like this option, and how many passes you would like.

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:

A wonderful Weekend

  • 4 of 5
This quaint place is ideal for couples to getaway from the city. The kitchen has every thing you need, the gas fireplace is warm and cozy, Netflix on demand (with excellent sound), and a bed that is the most comfortable that we have ever slept on. In fact, we are going to buy one ourselves.

When you enter this place, you are literally entering someone's home. We will be coming back.

Arrowhead hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Had a delightful time at Hershey cabin, providing a gratifying dash of the modern in the woods surrounding Lake Arrowhead. The 1 bedroom cabin was immaculate, with modern amenities all around, complete with a well stocked kitchen and an entertainment center loaded with Netflix for a quiet night in. The location was off the main road making for a quiet spot while still being a very short drive to Arrowhead village and its lakeside attractions. This made it easy to reach the touristy spots while having the option to relax and enjoy the mountain air. All in all a wonderful experience and I expect to return soon.

Very Beautiful Home/Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening your beautifully remodeled home for rental purposes. This was our 24th wedding anniversary weekend and it was a wonderful place to stay and celebrate our marriage! The home is easy to find, has easy access, private, parking, is centrally located, and we loved the keyless locking system!!! The newness and quality of the decor made for a bit of nerves though - we were worried about bumping into/breaking a decoration, etc :) The only thing we would critique is the need to remove our own trash. We have rented homes in the past for weeks at a time and have never had to 'take our trash with us'. In Yosemite we needed to take the trash down the street to a community bin, but to have to take our trash with us seemed very odd. Luckily we only stayed two nights and had very little trash (and had checked out on a Sunday) but had we stayed for a week or more it would have been quite inconvenient as we have a very small car and no info on where to take the trash bag. Thank you again for opening this beautiful home to the rental public.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and we do understand your concern regarding the trash. It appears you missed the sign posted in the kitchen regarding trash pick up. Guests that leave on Sunday or Monday can put trash out in the heavy duty black trash bags provided. Trash pick up is early Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, we cannot risk leaving trash out every day, as critters get into it and make a mess. We are charged a $250 fine if this happens. Guests leaving on Saturday can drop the trash off at Rim of the World High School, 2 miles away on highway 18, at no charge between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Unfortunately, we also have to haul our trash out Tuesday afternoon through Friday and do understand that it is an inconvenience.

A Marriage Rekindled

  • 5 of 5
As has been noted by so many previous folks who have stayed in the "Hershey Cabin" it truly is a pleasant quiet retreat. My wife and I spent too few days enjoying the cabin rekindling our marriage of 34 years. We do however plan to return in the not too distant future. All that you could need was available to us short of servants. My suggestion to future visitors is to read the instructions on how to gain access to the cabin. While I missed the most important part to ACTIVATE the lock, Paul was kind to me by explaining "Step #1". He was very patient and polite. I'm sure I would have rolled my eyes at such a question that is "clearly" explained on the instructions provided. Cud-dos to Paul for he and Janice have decorated and provided an outstanding retreat.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise in the mountains! No worries, we are always glad to answer any questions! To be honest, it was quite a tech learning curve to set up the lock, in the first place! 😳 But now, we do love the convenience of the system. We are delighted that you noticed and enjoyed the details we took such care to implement!
Thanks so much,
Janice and Paul

Very cozy and a good cabin that's very close to the village. It's a good location that's not too close to the busy streets. Loved all the rooms that had a very nice touch to every accent.

Lake Arrowhead September 2014

  • 4 of 5
I checked in on 19th Sept evening, the oil bottle in the kitchen was nearly finished. The owner left a new bottle on the door front on 20th Sept morning around 8am (appreciated that). Official check-in time is 5pm. Would be nice if it could be 3pm. One could arrange earlier arrival with the cabin owner though. Overall, I enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We would love to let everyone check in at 3:00, but due to the popularity of the Hershey Cabin we have lots of back to back bookings (which we had in your case). When we have back to back bookings it is difficult to allow early check in because we have to work around our cleaning ladies tight schedule. When she arrives, our cleaning lady has to clean the entire cabin, wash the sheets and towels, sweep the walkways, stairs and deck, and water the new trees. If we don't have back to back bookings, generally we can allow early check in.

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.
