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.

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.
