Wrightwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Charming Wrightwood Cabin near Mountain High, Big Pines Ziplines, WW Guest Ranch

LITTLE PINES CABIN is one of 5 vacation rentals in Wrightwood that we personally own. Check out our other listings as well: The Hideaway, Owls Nook, Chickadee, and Reindeer Cottage.

The Little Pines Cabin in Wrightwood is a light and airy 2-bedroom, 1-bath vacation home featuring a large, stone-lined wood burning fireplace, an open concept floor plan, a large full kitchen, and a wrap-around deck under towering pine trees (sleeps up to 7). Booking this Wrightwood cabin rental comes with discounts for local businesses, including $39 8-hr. passes for Mountain High (blackout dates apply; inquire for details). Little Pines cabin includes an authentic wooden sauna for 2 with steam rocks, a fenced yard, large gas grill, mountain bikes, rubber rafts, sleds, and more. Mountain views, close to hiking trails and sledding hills. Large flat screen and Dish Satellite TV & wifi.

Both bedrooms have sliding doors opening to the deck, which wraps around the house. Wake to views of snow-covered hills! Peek-a-boo mountain views from every window in the house. The large master bedroom features a romantic queen bed with canopy and a reading corner. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a twin bed on town and a full/double on the bottom (sleeps 3), plus a small flat screen tv, DVD player, and Gamecube system with games. In the living room there's a pull-out queen sofa bed next to the fireplace. This Wrightwood home rental sleeps 7 total.

The cabin's contemporary kitchen has stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, refrigerator, and gas range, plus a built-in microwave, coffee & espresso makers, rice cooker, toaster, crock pot, and more. All dishes, pots and pans, utensils, dish towels, etc., are all provided.

The cabin's bathroom includes a tub/shower combo, hand-carved Mexican vanity with copper sink, slate floor, and global-travel themed decor. Towels and toiletries are provided.

Board games make for fun family game nights, as well as over 250 DVDs to choose from, including many new releases. Relax in the sauna, or grab the sleds or bikes for some outdoor fun. You can also hike in the national forest just a couple blocks from the cabin.

The cabin's back deck has a glass patio table & 6 chairs and large gas grill, plus a sitting area, and mountain views. Sit under the towering pine tree and gaze at the stars! There's also a tree swing and kids picnic table in the fenced backyard as well as a sitting area on the front deck with mountain views.

Guests can opt to add an additional studio cabin (The Hideaway) located on the back of the property with loft bedroom, living area, kitchenette, bathroom, and private deck (sleeps 3-4). Adding The Hideaway to your cabin rental allows your group to easily spend time together but still have some time apart when you want your own private space. Inquire for more info.

The Wrightwood Area: Fun Things to Do! And if you stay with us, you can likely do it all for cheaper with our guest discounts. In the winter head out to nearby Mountain High (5 miles) with its world class snowboarding, skiing, tubing, snow play, and more. In summer hike, fish, swim, or bring our rubber rafts to Jackson Lake, or drive a little further to Silverwood Lake for some of the best fishing, swimming, and boating around, from jet ski rentals to bald eagle barge tours. Enjoy the village of Wrightwood year-round (1.8 miles to the shops) where you can enjoy great food at charming local eateries, friendly pubs, antiques stores, a coffee house, gourmet health foods store, book store, gift shops, candy shop, plus lots of live music, festivals, and events.

Nature lovers and outdoor types have tons of options, including hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and other trails (some just down the road from the cabin), mountain biking, rock climbing, and more!

Wrightwood Location: Only a little over an hour away from the Los Angeles area, it feels like worlds away. A great place to get away from it all and step back in time at the village, yet enjoy modern conveniences in a contemporary cabin. Come experience the pleasure of waking up in Wrightwood!

About Barbara

We are a family of avid skiers and snowboarders that love the mountains! We also love to travel, which is why our cabins have a little bit of an international flair. We're authors and like to do our writing with a mountain view (look for our book Living Abroad in China at bookstores and on Amazon to learn more about us). In addition to renting our 5 Wrightwood cabins, we also have "real jobs" down the hill as professors.

Barbara purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Barbara chose Inland Empire

We bought this cabin to stay in when our teens wanted to ski/snowboard, especially since they are now doing competitions. We decided to rent it out when we weren't staying there and quickly discovered that we really enjoy sharing our cabin with other people who love the mountains as much as we do. Now we live full time in Wrightwood so we're available to help guests when needed.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with the wrap-around deck, the peek-a-boo mountain views, the proximity to hiking trails. After looking at lots of places with too much depressing wood paneling, we loved the light and airy open floor plan of this cabin. When we stay here, we always grill out on the oversized gas grill, enjoy meals on the deck, and relax in the sauna.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful retreat you have in your warm and cozy home! What a pleasure it was for us to drink in the beauty of the mountains and hear the sound of singing birds. Thank you for opening this beautiful cabin. It truly was the highlight of our trip from Minnesota. May God bless you richly for your delightful haven of rest!

Easter weekend

  • 5 of 5

Getting away from home is always nice. We really loved the little pines cabin. We spent the weekend here with our kids and they LOVED IT. there is a patio that wraps around the house and a tire swing they couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and play on. It's always stressful bringing our 7 month old anywhere but she slept comfortably. Everything worked out so smoothly. The Easter bunny hid the eggs all around the property. The kids had so much fun. It's such a cozy little house! We didn't get to spend much time in the house because we were up there having our wedding and Easter but we will definitely consider going again one of these days. It was so relaxing!

Dirty, unprofessional, CAUTION!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

Note there pictures are misleading. Our stay was originally planned for Thursday -Sunday. So in a nutshell we arrived at 3 PM which is check in plenty of time to clean the cabin (as it is extremely small) We have a one-year-old and a three-year old upon arriving we noticed that the cabin was extremely dirty (had to do some cleaning since our little one still crawls) floors not clean fireplace full of ash, cobwebs on corner of walls, TV did not work, are bed was basically 4 x 4 pieces of wood with plywood and a mattress on top extremely uncomfortable, shower had some gunk in it and around the drain and the amenities they claim they offer are half used. They claim they keep movies up to date unfortunately the majority are VHS and in Japanese or Chinese. The Coffee pot had mold in it and I could go on. After arriving Thursday late afternoon we unpacked and settled in when we woke up in the morning Friday after reading the multiple rules and sticky notes everywhere around the house telling us to clean up do dishes make the housekeepers job easy or we will charge you more money we decided to pack up and leave it just wasn't worth it really unsanitary and unwelcoming feeling so we pack the kids up and left we emailed them immediately after leaving and notified them of our problems to be fair we asked for one day refund so we agreed to pay on the days we were there Thursday and even Friday "Not even 24 hours there " they would not refund us any thing very unprofessional we will be disputing this with our credit card company.

Owner's Response: This young couple booked our place for New Year’s Eve, left in the morning, and then contacted us after they were gone demanding we give them over $500. We suspect they only wanted to stay for New Year’s Eve (we require a multiple night stay for winter holidays) and thought if they left early and complained about the property we’d simply give them money back. But that’s not the way things work. We will always immediately send a cleaner or personally do whatever we can to meet the needs of our guests, and can sometimes switch guests to another of our cabins, but these guests left without giving us the chance to solve anything, not contacting us until they were long gone. We found no gunk in the shower, no mold in the coffee maker, no broken TVs. What we did find was they completely trashed the place; it took 7 hours to get it ready for the next guests. Some of their comments are simply untrue, and some are simply misleading – for example, we literally have over 200 DVDs there, as well as Dish satellite with hundreds of channels. Yes, many DVDs have Chinese subtitles, which we purchase to help us study Chinese, but subtitles can be turned off. The bed (which they never even mentioned to us) is as they described, a platform bed we made from recycled wood – we enjoy upcycling things! We upcycled the fireplace mantle from old beams, we’ve turned doors into dining tables and tree limbs into table legs, and many of the beds at all five of our cabins are ones we’ve made. I think they’re just mad that we didn’t let them bully us. We even gave them their full deposit back, despite the hours of extra cleaning required, and have been nothing but polite with them at all times, despite their attitude and behavior. We aren’t afraid of a false bad review. You can check the reviews on our other 4 places (Reindeer Cottage, Owls Nook, Chickadee, Hideaway) for the same time period (cleaned by the same people, products, and processes), and you’ll see nothing but happy guests, and many of the reviews specifically mention the word clean. So don’t assume that all reviewers are being honest.

Little Pines Cabin, Wrightwood. Cozy, quaint & relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated my 65th birthday with our friends. It was so nice to have a home-away-from-home to take our shoes off after a day of snooping around Wrightwood. It was topped off with my girlfriend and I zip lining! Awesome experience. I've already recommended the cabin to our friends.

The town hosts several fun events each year, such as classic car shows, chili cook-offs, Christmas caroling, lots of live music, and the like. A small town that feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
