About Ken Steele

My wife and I are long time So Cal residents and enjoy the beach and mountains. Since a child I have spent many vacations in the Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Areas. We enjoy several family and extended famly weekends a year at our home. It's such a nice get-away from the 'Jungle' as most mountain residents refer to the cities down the hill.

Ken Steele purchased this house in 2007

Why Ken Steele chose Lake Arrowhead

We chose Lake Arrowhead because it is the most beautiful area in the San Bernardino Mountains. Close to the Village, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Gregory, the Resort and many great restaurants. A short drive to Snow Valley and easy access to Snow Summit Ski Areas.

What makes this house unique

The home has a great layout for large family and multi-family get-away weekends and extended vacations offering bedroom privacy and a central living area that is both comfortable and large enough to accommodate everyone. Close to San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, and the inland empire.

North bay retreat

  • 5 of 5

Such a cozy and inviting place for a group of friends with young kids. Our group had a wonderful and relaxed time in the cabin. A short drive to Snowdrift tubing park for some snow fun. The view from the deck is beautiful. The bunk room is an awesome headquarter for all the kids, though it was cold down there, even after we tried closing the vents upstairs to 30%. The kitchen was well stocked, living room had a lot of board games, movies. Overall we had a great experience, would stay here again.

Lake Arrowhead Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and Ken was an awesome person to deal with! It was my first time renting a cabin with some friends and we had planned a snowboarding trip and saw his cabin on VRBO and couldn't pass up the deal. He answered all of my questions that I had promptly. The cabin is really nice. It has everything you would need and plenty of space for a nice-sized group. The interior was beautiful and had such a nice and relaxing atmosphere to relax after a long day outside.

Definitely looking forward to staying here again next year!

Lake Arrowhead Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My extended family spent Labor day weekend at this beautiful home in Lake Arrowhead. The little ones loved playing inside the large home. I especially enjoyed the outside deck for meals and just enjoying the family and weather. It is a perfect place for large groups. All 10 of us had a great time! This was my first time using VRBO and I was not disappointed.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I wanted a large and comfortable home in Lake Arrowhead for the weekend. The place felt like it can accomodate upwards of 13 or 14 ppl. The house was maintained really well and clean. Nice view and not too far from the lake. Lots of lounging area inside and outside. Ken, the property owner was responsive and helpful. Definitely would rent again in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

GREAT FAMILY RETREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

My 3-generation family of 6 adults and 4 children enjoyed a great week-long family retreat vacation at the North Bay Retreat, which is located a short hiking distance (or drive) away from beautiful Lake Arrowhead. Everyone in our family was comfortably accommodated with plenty of space to enjoy together or alone. We found the retreat to be a very clean and inviting place to spend our vacation. The great room, with a tall A-frame ceiling, was a welcoming centerpiece to the retreat, with ample furnishings and space for everyone to enjoy. The large dining room table easily accommodated all 10 of us for our family meals together, a feature that was important for us in choosing this retreat! The kitchen offered plenty of space for preparing meals, including a large serving counter, situated between the kitchen and another smaller dining area, a perfect height from which the children enjoyed their snacks! The barbecue on the huge deck was used to cook some delicious dinners and desserts! There were plenty of chairs and space to enjoy the outdoors on the deck, along with two umbrella tables. The spa was also a highlight, which was used by some of our family, without heating, to cool off on a few warm summer afternoons. The extraordinary bunk room, and adjoining spa bathroom, was a top feature for our family in deciding where to stay, and it turned out to be a perfect place for the cousins to sleep, read, or play! It was no secret that the kids loved the bunk room! The upstairs master king suite is a superbly spacious and relaxing space, with an adjoining bathroom. And the two queen upstairs bedrooms offered comfortable and private quarters with a bathroom to share upstairs, and another bathroom on the main floor. The pool table upstairs, the air hockey table downstairs and the large screen TV in the great room were also great entertainment features of this retreat.

On our daily outings to explore the various attractions of either Lake Arrowhead or Big Bear, we found some fun lunch and ice cream places that added to the enjoyment of our vacation.

Retreat owner, Ken, is very attentive and responsive to requests and feedback, and very kind and helpful in his communications. Thanks to Ken and Merilyn for sharing your beautiful retreat! I would highly recommend the North Bay Retreat to anyone interested in a great vacation place at which to stay in the Lake Arrowhead area.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant one week stay at this cabin resort. Family of 11 from grandparents to infant. Great for togetherness - all able to sit at the dining table for dinner but roomy enough for quiet time. Downstairs bunkhouse terrific for all the young cousins to camp-out. Kitchen well equipped with BBQ just out the door for Grandpa to cook. Stater Bros in the Village is the place to shop for food but the rest a tad too "touristy" - Outlet stores all at 80% off, etc.

If you're a fisherman, you'll have to go to Lake Gregory or Big Bear - both a pleasant drive. This property is a bargain particularly if you stay a week or more. Highly recommended.
