HISTORIC HERSHEY CABIN - COZY, ROMANTIC, IMMACULATE - DESIGNED JUST FOR TWO

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.

SORRY - WE DO NOT RENT TO SMOKERS AND WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS ON THE PROPERTY.

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.

My wife and I were married 38 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

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 the it the classic 'cabin' feel.

At about 1/2 the price of a mountain view 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.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our 15th wedding anniversary, the cabin was so perfect. They really thought of everything..just bring yourself. It was cozy,relaxing, and romantic. The outside wrap around deck was out standing we would play cards or relax with a glass of wine. The bed was so comfy and with the view of the pine trees & the birds singing every morning we didn't want to get out of bed. The renovation done on the house was amazing...the builder did a wonderful job all the detail put in the house was done by pure craft and heart as well as the lovely decor... this cabin is a must see & stay we will be back for sure!!!

THE ATKINSONS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this lovely cabin for 5 days to celebrate our anniversary. It was the perfect getaway! Quiet, comfortable and peaceful. The interior decorations and antiques were so perfect for the cabin setting. We especially liked the little extras...The information signage so well done, the area highlights notebook, games to play, and the welcoming card and chocolates( Hersheys, of course). We look forward to our next getaway already!

HISTORIC HERSHEY CABIN

  • 5 of 5
This totally remodeled cabin is situated in the heavily pine and oak forested area of Arrowhead and displays beautiful workmanship throughout. It's hillside local gives a birdseye view of the street below and does require a few steps to access. It even has decorated stone arrowheads over the fireplace, the kitchen sink and tiled shower. Every facet of the remodel has been carefully planned out with quality materials and great thought has been put into the comfort of the guests. We did not really miss having a t.v. because we were able to read uninterrupted and enjoyed the peacefulness. Drinking breakfast coffee and enjoying the chirping of the bird life is very pleasant on the deck which surrounds two sides of the cabin. The cabin is truly a gem and we would recommend the accommodations for anyone who wants a true get-away with comfortable and modern decor. We enjoyed the boutique shopping in the Lake Arrowhead and Stater Bros. is very convenient on the upper level. We dined on fresh trout at Woody's Boathouse Restaurant with a view of the lake; then, the following eve at The Grill in Twin Peaks which is just a 10 minute drive away. Many good restaurants including the signature restaurant at the Lake Arrowhead Resort are just minutes away. Spending a few days at Lake Arrowhead is truly a great way to relax from the bustle of the city.

ROMANTIC, BEAUTIFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came to the Hershey Cabin for our 10th anniversary. The cabin was even nicer than it looks in the pictures. Everything has been done high end, from the gorgeous granite countertops to the porcelain tile floors and shower. The location is very quiet and there is a beautifully landscaped yard all around the cabin.
The appliances and everything else in the kitchen are brand new. The kitchen is far more complete than ours at home! The living room is very warm and inviting as is the bedroom - the decorations and furniture in the cabin are perfect!
This is far and away the nicest place we have ever stayed - we will definitely be coming again.

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.
