About Mike Godfrey

I am a Realtor, Reverse Mortgage Loan Specialist & traditional loan officer. The beauty and peace in Lake Arrowhead is a welcome retreat from our busy working schedules. We live in Orange County so it's a short drive to the mountains but it feels far away from every day life. Some day we plan to retire and live in Lake Arrowhead as our primary residence.

Mike Godfrey purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Mike Godfrey chose Inland Empire

We purchased this property as a place to enjoy the lake and time with our family. We continue to spend as much time as possible there, summer and winter. When we cannot go we like to share it with others and are happy when we hear of other families and groups who have enjoyed it as much as we do.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

I've waited a few days since receiving my deposit back to calm down in order to write a helpful review. It took 2 weeks to get my deposit back, which is just too long. I also noticed the reviews are pretty old (which I used to determine to rent), and I think there should be an updated one. We stayed for a family event for my husband's retirement with 8 guests spending the night and 12 for a dinner. We were there 2 nights.

Let me start off by saying the problems we had were likely related to an owner not having been to his property in some time. One problem was we were not able to check in till 6pm due to the street closure. Owner did not know they were repaving that day. It was very hard on the elderly and young in our group after long drives. This is just an example of the owner not visiting his unit, as signs were posted for weeks about the closure. I'll still give pros and cons to the chalet:

Cons:

The cabin is not as advertised (carpet is not new and is in need of cleaning, sheets and pillows not included)

The comforters on the beds were filthy as was the upstairs couch in which we found all kinds of food, tissues, etc under cushions.

The jetted tubs were clean but the jets themselves were caked with grime (pretty gross and we didn't use them)

Several kitchen items were not working (coffee maker and grinder are examples)

The upstairs queen sofa bed is not usable to sleep on. The mattress is threadbare and has coils protruding)

One of the kayaks was missing a hook on one side for the seat making it unusable

* THE LOFT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN. THE RAILINGS ARE TOO FAR APART AND PROBABLY NOT TO CODE.

Pros:

The round dining table is perfect for a large dinner or just for congregating

Proximity to lake

2 Lake passes included with up to 4 guests with each pass

The deck is large and shaded

Nice BBQ

Not many stairs to the main level for those not able to climb

This could be a great place again, as older reviews seem to indicate it once was very nice. The owner just needs to stay there periodically to keep standards high.

A great 4th of July visit to Lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I decided to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our grown children we chose Lake Arrowhead. As we navigated through the search we needed a pet friendly cabin so Mike's cabin popped up in our search. Not only the cabin met our needs but the reviews were amazing. Rightly so. Mike goes beyond the call of duty and provides you with a clear path into the rental. His cabin is clean and..... Oh, that round table!!!! A great place to congregate, not only to eat but to play games and talk. If you are considering staying in Lake Arrowhead, I would consider this cabin as it will provide you with a relaxed and pleasant stay. Thanks Mike!

Great stay at this rental for three couples, two kids and a dog. Big open space right in the middle of the house--great for gatherings. We loved the fireplace and the huge table for memorable meals! Kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed. Great sledding in trails behind the house. Owner was fast to respond to inquiries and was so accommodating, giving us many tips for enjoying the area. Would definitely come to stay again!

Family Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This Christmas our family of 11 rented this mountain home for our holiday celebrations. We spent one day at the nearby Arrowhead Village, and took a paddle boat tour of the lake. The lake tour allowed us to see the beautiful homes all around the private lake. We found this home to be properly outfitted for a large group, plenty of dishes, pans and cooking utensils to prepare our traditional holiday breakfasts and dinners with ease. The space was excellent with 3 levels to spread out on we never felt we were on top of each other. The fireplace was quick to light with a gas starter, and my favorite dining table of all time..a beautiful large round table that comfortably sat 11 people is really unusual and a wonderful addition. The beds were great, there is a small space under the first floor stairway that my little niece called as her own and slept there each night in her hidey-hole. The top floor has a wonderful area with a large flat screen TV with very comfortable seating, along with a super relaxing recliner. The cabin was decorated nicely, the shades on the windows are very nice, and at 24 degrees outside the house warmed up nicely. The master bedroom is very nice as well with a very comfortable king sized bed. All beds have heated blankets which was helpful to ward off the chill. The last night of our stay it snowed and that was a wonderful way to finish off our holiday. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for something comfortable for a large family.
