Nice mountain getaway

  • 4 of 5

We liked the place, it was clean and the lake was close-by. The swimming beach is special - not too many of those on Lake Arrowhead. The owners were very friendly and did their best to make our stay a nice experience.

One thing about the layout that I did not realize from the pictures was that the master bedroom is all the way downstairs, and all other beds are in the loft, two levels up. So, if you have small, scaredy-cat kids like ours, this does not work so well. Would be great for bringing teens & a pack of their friends though!

My favorite thing was the walking trail around the lake, with ever more beautiful views around each new corner. One caution though: I would not recommend this (or any other Arrowhead lakefront cottage for that matter) to anyone who has problems with their knees. There are a lot of stairs!

Owner's Response: Hope future renters get to experience our beautiful lakefront cabin as much as this one did.Yes,with mountains com grades, but it is a great workout, better than the gym! We love it, winter and summer!

Very old and rundown.

  • 1 of 5

There is so much that is wrong and hazardous about the rental I'm surprised it's able to be rented. The house is too rundown to rent. The outdoors is so overgrown there is no view. The beach is a walk away through broken steps, and not maintained paths. The party deck is a 10 min walk from house. This house needs to be fixed up. It is not suitable for rental. Everything is broken. Worse of all it's now been two months and I have not got my deposit back. Great neighborhood but the pictures posted are deceiving. I wish I had walked away the moment we walked it.

Owner's Response: I am always willing to listen to guests comments and take notes, however, and I am sorry that this particular guest had issues, however, I feel they are greatly exaggerated. I definitely will look into any delayed security deposits though if that is truly the case. We state in our agreement that it is approximately 45 days to receive a refund, however with holidays that can be slightly delayed on rare occasion. The house was built in 1960 as were 80% of the homes on the lake and very few have a dock right by the house. It is a 5 min walk for most. We are diligent at keeping the house clean and repaired and I am sorry if something broke during a stay, but I have a handyman 24/7 for any needed repairs but never was called in September for any problems. Unfortunately I don't know who this party is in order to check on their refund. I will review our records though asap. Most folks have a wonderful time and expect that they are going to a "cabin on the lake" and realize what that entails. They enjoy the pristeen lake and views. We have many wonderful reviews of the home that can be provided for future renters.

Cozy cabin, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cozy cabin! Looked out at the beautiful view of the snow covered lake and sat around the fireplace. It had everything we wanted for a much needed getaway from LA. and we went snowboarding a short drive away. Looking forward to visiting again in the summertime to enjoy the lakefront.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your visit. We do our best to make it comfy and cozy. We give a discount to repeat customers so you definitely need to come swim in the lake this summer!!

This is not a lake front home!To get to the lake you must climb down about 65 steps then then down a steep hill to the lake. There is no private swimming beach plus only homeowners are allowed to take boats onto the lake. The overall condition of the house itself is shabby and outdated. Many items were either broken or missing parts. The carpet is probably 30 year old green shag.

Would not recommend this property unless you enjoy paying top dollar for sub standard accommodations.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear of your disappointment. We do our best to help our guests feel comfortable in our cozy cabin. Our many many guests over the years have enjoyed their stay and in fact the majority of lakefronts homes on lake Arrowhead require stairs to the lake. It is unfortunate if the guest had expectations of renting a boat but we were never asked about it. We do not make the Lake Associations's rules. The photos clearly show the home, carpet and all. This home IS considered lakefront and is valued at over $1,000,000 and we charge a modest rental rate considering the property value. There are some other processing charges added on by the website. Occasionally things get broken, but they are always repaired promptly as soon as we become aware of them. Unfortunately we can't predict the expectations people come with and this appears the main reason for this traveller's disappointment moreso than what was promised by the owner. I gave this individual several offers to help their stay better meet their wishes but there was nothing that was acceptable to them and I cannot change the rules and layout of the lake. Future renters have my cell phone number and can ask any questions they have before or after they arrive. We graciously accommodate any requests we can.

The owner was very nice but upon our arrival, my husband said, "We can drive home now and make it by dinner." The house was cluttered, had cobwebs everywhere and dog pee smelling entry. Not sure how this is being called a 2 bedroom, The loft is an open balcony with a bunch of beds stuffed in. As previously noted by another reviewer, the deposit took OVER 45 days to get back, even though I was assured we would get priority refund (since she did not refund our 2nd night). We did not stay both nights and left the 2nd night payment on the table instead of staying another night in that house.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this party had any issues with their stay, but they referred to a few things that we were unfortunately unaware of. Apparently, an animal had marked its territory on the porch area near the front door and we did not know it, but we quickly sanitized that area, but I have never had a similar complaint. Had the customer told me what the problem was when they arrived, I could have sent a crew over to remedy it immediately. We do have a no refund policy, but offer a rebooking. We didn't find any payment left on the table, so I am not sure what this tenant was referring to. We work hard to keep our home clean and tidy, but up in the mountains there occasionally are some things we become aware of by surprise. We do our best and usually have happy customers. Our bookkeepers work at a diligent pace as well, but once in awhile may get behind or be missing a return address or other information needed to process the refund. We wish all of our customers goodwill and safe travels.
