Lovely Lake Arrowhead Home - Perfect for Families
Submitted: February 14, 2012

We have rented homes in Lake Arrowhead for the past three years and this property was, by far, the nicest we have found in terms of space, amenities and decor. The owners have tried to provide all those things a family might want or need during a vacation.
The house is within 10 minutes of the Lake Arrowhead village shopping area and easy to find. Private parking is right in front of the house, with a single flight of stairs down to the front door. The ample living space that this house offers was perfect for our family (6 adults, 3 small children). There are several areas where people may enjoy time together. Most of our time was spent on the main floor in the small sitting and dining areas adjacent to the kitchen, however, there is an entire living area outside the master suite with a TV and fireplace where we enjoyed movies at night. For those who wish to spread out or find some quiet time, there is another family/game room and small library downstairs. The library isn't mentioned much in the description, but there is a wonderful selection of books and cozy armchairs here to enjoy.
The most unexpected "plus" for us with the home was the playroom, which is well appointed with games, toys and books for young children. This is located downstairs, adjacent to the third and fourth bedrooms. These rooms are small but with comfortable beds and a bathroom to share. The two-twin room is on the main floor, adjacent to the kitchen, with access to another bathroom. We also found a baby gate, high chair and pack-n-play in this closet. The master suite is large with a very comfortable King bed, spacious bathroom and spa tub. You may want to note that there is no shower in the master bath, however, the other 3 bathrooms do have shower/tub combos.
The kitchen in this home is smaller than you would expect for the size of the house, but it was well stocked with cookware. The night before our stay, the owners informed us of a slight problem with the oven. A repair was needed to the stove's digital panel but it could not be made prior to our arrival. The owners were very accommodating, coming to the property on the day of our arrival to make a minor adjustment and show us how we could use the oven. We had no problems cooking with it during our stay and were very appreciative of their attention to the matter.
Overall, this lovely property does not disappoint and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Lake Arrowhead. We hope to return soon!
