About Don and Diane Cunningham

We are a retired couple who have been fortunate to realize our dream of building our dream home and retiring in Kauai. We were both born and raised in Southern California and had executive careers in local government there. Since our family and friends are in Southern California, we make several trips a year to visit them as well as vacation throughout the U.S. and occasionally internationally. In mid-2013, we achieved another dream of buying a second home in beautiful Lake Arrowhead.

Don and Diane Cunningham purchased this house in 2013

Why Don and Diane Cunningham chose Lake Arrowhead

Although Diane was born and raised in Southern California, she had never been to Lake Arrowhead until some friends invited us there over the 4th of July in 2012. Diane fell in love with the quaint mountain town and made good use of the outlets in Lake Arrowhead Village! She immediately began to work on Don to consider buying a home there. They both loved the fresh mountain air and all that Lake Arrowhead has to offer, so Diane didn't have to work too hard.

What makes this house unique

After looking at many properties, we chose this home as it was the right size for our needs, had a quiet and peaceful location, its overall mountain charm, plowed roads in the winter, and its close proximity to restaurants, shopping and lake activities. We love its chalet-like exterior, the large deck for relaxing and entertaining, and the large yard filled with a variety of trees and shrubs.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this mountain getaway for four nights over July 4th weekend. The home was well appointed with all dishes, utensils, serving platters, etc., as well as a lovely deck where we spent most of our days and evenings. Our family of four, including two teenagers, were very comfortable and we had plenty of room to entertain extended family on the holiday.

We would definitely consider renting this again!

The house was clean when we came in and came fully stocked which was great! The neighborhood was nice and with just a little walk up the hill you are able to see the lake. Will definitely stay here again when we come up to Lake Arrowhead!

We spent 6 weeks at the Cunningham's mountain home is everything as described an much much more. This was one of the best VRBO rentals that we've had. Their response to any questions was prompt, the kitchen is very well equipped (liked the good knives) and best of all were the beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful home!! We loved the comfortable beds and fully equipped kitchen. This was the nicest house we have ever stayed at in the Lake Arrowhead/Big Bear area. It was perfect for two families and an easy drive to sledding and Santa's Village. Waking up to snow was the cherry on top!
