Lake Arrowhead House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

SWITZERLAND IN CALIFORNIA. That is how beautiful Lake Arrowhead, nestled into the alpine mountains of Southern California, is often described. Our home is surrounded by pine trees with one of the best views of the lake. The Lake House presents the ideal relaxation opportunity for those looking to truly get away from it all.

Recently remodeled from top to bottom by an internationally renowned architect, this four bedroom, 2 bathroom house is located on the shore of one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in North America. It is exactly what you would imagine a lake house should be. With a touch of the “Ralph Lauren” vibe and old world charm, you’ll never know you Lake Arrowhead is just a distance form LA

19.5 Cobalt boat is included in the summer price June 1-Sept 5

The boat is also available for May and Sept for an additional charge

We are located one hour and forty minutes from Los Angeles.

It’s no accident that Lake Arrowhead is the getaway of choice for Southern Californians and vacationers from all around the world.

About Cathy Cabrera

My husband and I have owned 'THE LAKE HOUSE' for over 29 years. Our children were young when we bought the house and they have so many wonderful memories of time spent there. Our children are grown, have children of their own and have moved away. We spend most of our time in NYC and San Francisco where our children now live. While we would never so much as think about selling The Lake House, we are happy to share this magical spot with other families.

Cathy Cabrera purchased this house in 1987

Why Cathy Cabrera chose Inland Empire

We love pine trees, mountains, crystal clear lakes and the four seasons. We found all we were looking for when we bought our Lake House 28 years ago (it seems like yesterday.) It is so much like Switzerland in its beauty. Our home is right on the water and the views are amazing from every room, bringing the unique peace and quiet of another time into each room in the house. The drive to Lake Arrowhead from Los Angeles is only 1 1/2 hours - traffic permitting. For years, we’ve been able to spend most weekends at The Lake House giving our family the best of both Los Angeles and Lake Arrowhead as well as many priceless memories.

What makes this house unique

Our Lake House has easy access from the road and is just steps away from the Lake Arrowhead. There you will find our private dock & boat with a sandy beach near by. The house is nestled in pine trees away from everything. It is so very quiet during the week as well as most weekends. It is a perfect hideaway for a romantic getaway as well as family fun-filled holiday. While we love taking our friends to the Lake House (sometimes never even leaving the property all week-end) you will find that it is the perfect escape when you just want to get away by yourself to repair, relax and ‘find’ yourself. In addition to the unique bedrooms (each one done with its own personality) and the open and comfortable living areas, you’ll find cooking with friends to be the best in our open, gourmet kitchen. To that end, you will find one of the finest grocery stores in California just 10 minutes away in Blue Jay. For anything else you need or want, Lake Arrowhead Village is a 5 minute drive away. The Village is known for its discount shopping, restaurants, and a 5 star spa & gym at The Lake Arrowhead Resort Hotel. If you’re in the mood for a walk, there is path just steps down from our Lake House that will take you for a beautiful 30 minute walk by the lake to the Village where you can rent a boat with a water ski instructor, take a ride around the lake on the Arrowhead Queen. There is snow skiing and sledding only 20 minutes from the home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Cathy,

I have been meaning to e-mail you now for the past week. I cannot tell you how much we thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home. We especially LOVED your decorating expertise. Everything was just beautifully placed. We all came back to our homes inspired to re-decorate!!

Having the kayaks & paddle boards were a dream. We all enjoyed the warm weather and loved swimming in the lake.

Another favorite of ours was the path in both directions around the lake. It is just amazing. We never made it on any other hikes. We are going to save them for next time.

We hope to make this a tradition.

Thank you again for all your help and assistance in making my 50th birthday a weekend to truly cherish!!

Best wishes to you and yours.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I had such an amazing time staying here. The house is drop dead gorgeous, but still warm and cozy. Views from the house are really great. Please bring peanuts for the blue jays - they might be missing us right now! Cathy was very responsive to our questions and everything was just top notch. We will hopefully be able to come back soon!!

Beautifully Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days at this amazing place for a small family gathering of 8 in mid September. Our first encounter with Cathy Cabrera was wonderful, she was very professional, accommodating and timely. The Lake House was beautifully maintained (and we are somewhat picky) we had one minor problem, but Roberto the property manager quickly responded and resolved the issue. The location was ideal and the deck was just the perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible view. We loved this place, our only disappointment was not being able to bring our little Pug, Elmo, but we understand some pets can be problematic.

I hosted a girls weekend with 5 of my friends and this home was perfect! The pictures are exactly what you will experience, no surprises with this property. The home is beautifully decorated with spectacular views of the lake from all the bedrooms, living room and covered deck area. The house was spotless and comes with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen they also have numerous games and puzzles. My friends and I especially enjoyed having Nespresso (machine and pods provided) every morning while looking at the lake from the outside deck. The Village is an easy walk and is especially fun during Oktoberfest! We were only at the house for a (too) short weekend but the house also comes with kayaks and paddle boards if you want to be on the water.

Cathy was amazing and was quick to answer any questions we had either through email or text.

I have stayed at Lake Arrowhead several times and this house is by far the best rental I have experienced. My friends and I are looking forward to making it a yearly event!

Beautiful Lake Front Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a 5 day/ 4 night stay at Cathy's house on the lake in Lake Arrowhead. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations and all the fun lake toys that came with the rental; including kayaks, stand up paddle boards and of course the ski boat. Never a dull moment on the lake!

The house is very well decorated and comfortable. Loved the extras like the Nespesso coffee maker that came with the coffee pods. Made the morning coffees on the deck as simple as could be.

Cathy was extremely responsive and provided all the information necessary to make our stay easy. She was also very flexible and allowed us to check in early on the day we arrived.

We are looking forward to our next stay!

The Lake House was a beautiful home in a wonderful setting.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for our large group. The kitchen was large enough for several cooks and was very well equipped. The grandkids learned to water ski and spent lots of time on the paddle boards. Any problem that came up was handled quickly and generously. I would certainly recommend staying there. We all had a wonderful time.

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing experience in Cathy's wonderful home. We caught fish, kids learned to waterski, I wake boarded. Kids had a blast just jumping off the dock for hours. It was our second time at Lake Arrowhead and Cathy's rental has spoiled it for all of us cause now, we don't want to stay anywhere else. House has spectacular views, it's clean and has everything you need. All around, it was one of our best vacations and we can't wait to come back!
