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 Inland Empire

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!! 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!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay in our home and very glad you had snow while there. We visited Santa's Village with our grandchildren for the first time over Christmas 2016 and loved it. Also, thank you for taking such good care of our home!
