About the property

A beautiful knotty pine mountain home...a luxurious way to relax!

Welcome to your home away from home. Relax and rejuvenate in your fully appointed, peaceful, and cozy cabin home. If you're looking for fun and adventure you will also find it here.

WHEN YOU ENTER YOUR CABIN: You take in the bright and expansive knotty pine “great room” with a vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace. You see two overstuffed leather couches and a plush recliner where you can nap, read, catch up on emails, watch TV, or just listen to your favorite music.The cabin's prow front has floor-to-ceiling windows and a large wraparound redwood deck with views into your own personal forest. When you sit in a deck chair, you can sip your morning coffee or enjoy an afternoon snack--and surrender to the tranquility of the peaceful quiet, the warm sun, and a gentle breeze blowing through the trees.

KEYS AND OTHER THINGS: On the kitchen peninsula, you'll find your Welcome Book and Welcome Basket. Next to them are two cabin keys, the garage remote, and two access passes to all the private facilities on Lake Arrowhead.

KITCHEN AND BAR-B-QUE: You have access to a fully stocked, gourmet kitchen that will make you feel right at home. It's complete with a double oven, gas stove, a full set of cookware, a large spice rack, and serving platters for entertaining. If you'd rather, you can BBQ outside on the deck. Whether you cook or bring in food for your family and guests, you can sit at the rustic pine dining table that comfortably seats 10 people. You can enjoy breakfast for two or a quick snack at the granite peninsula.

ENTERTAINMENT: You have easy access to high-speed internet, HD cable television, and a Sony stereo receiver with Bose speakers. The stereo receiver can plug into an iPhone / iPod / mp3 player for music. You can enjoy books, games and puzzles on the large coffee table in front of the fireplace. The DVD library includes a full selection of videos for adults and children.In the loft kids and adults can play foosball and air hockey. You'll also be able to use the office desk to print information about nearby attractions or sit on the love seat/sofa bed and watch the kids play.

BEDROOMS: We can accommodate 9 people. The upstairs master suite has a king-size sleigh bed, full-sized pine dresser and portable air conditioner. Did you bring your dog? You will find a large dog bed in the corner. The large bedroom window looks out towards the hillside trees. On the first floor you have two bedrooms with twin beds and full-sized closets. Warm blankets are available for the winter and light cotton blankets for the summer. In the linen closet you have beach towels available when you go to nearby Lake Arrowhead or Lake Gregory.In addition, the love seat on the loft folds out into a full bed. In the Great Room, one of the leather couches unfolds into a queen bed. All of these are super comfy.

BATHROOMS: The two bathrooms have fresh towels, body wash, natural shampoo, and hair dryers. Both have been recently upgraded with granite vanity tops, clear glass shower doors, and attractive new fixtures. The downstairs bath has a tub that is perfect for warming up after a long winter's day at the slopes or tobogganing in the Big Bear area.

DOGS: Housebroken dogs are allowed. If your dog has an accident, there is spray under the kitchen sink. We provide collapsible dog crates if they will make your doggie feel more comfortable during the night. We recommend keeping your dog on a leash during your walks. Please clean up after them. Doggie poop bags are provided.

PARKING: There is a large attached garage where you can park a car. You receive a garage door remote control to ease your coming and going. If you bring more than one car, there is an additional parking space at the entrance to the driveway. Also, street parking is permitted.

About Peter and Wendy Lewis

Wendy and I have lived in Los Angeles for 30 years. Our daughter has graduated from college so we have an empty nest! Except that we have four hilarious cats and two dogs at home. We have traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe, and the Far East. We enjoy meeting new people and experiencing their history, culture, and cuisine. As well we love to entertain friends at our home in the US.

I am a business management consultant and Wendy is a psychologist. I love photography and digging into the rich history of places we are visiting. Wendy likes the adventure of discovering things that are new and different.

Peter and Wendy Lewis purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Peter and Wendy Lewis chose Inland Empire

We bought this property in 2000, when our daughter was 10 years old. After looking at more than 15 homes in the area, we walked into our cabin and knew immediately that this was IT! We immediately felt the calming effect and positive energy of being surrounded by knotty pine wood and beautiful, comfortable and overstuffed furniture.

We bought the house immediately. It has been the place we go with our dogs, to relax and rejuvenate from our busy Los Angeles lives.

What makes this cabin unique

A beautiful knotty pine mountain cabin, to spend time by yourself, with family or with friends. A wrap-around prow front redwood deck, full gourmet kitchen, deep leather couches, vaulting fireplace, and three bedrooms. Minutes away is world class recreation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at the Lewis's cabin for the holidays! This Lake Arrowhead gem is like stepping into a movie: a cozy, inviting cabin surrounded by huge trees and, luckily for us this weekend, covered in a blanket of snow. Everything from the crackling fireplace to the huge windows overlooking that picturesque winter view was beautiful. Our doggies also loved the experience and we are thankful to the Lewis family for providing this pet friendly weekend getaway. Also, Peter and Wendy are the most gracious hosts. From the moment we booked, they were so pleasant in answering any questions and offering all the best tips for making the most of our time in Lake Arrowhead. It is evident they have put a lot of heart into their home and care about making sure you and your family will feel right at home too.

A Wonderfully Charming, Perfect Cabin in Peaceful Location! Truly a Bit of Heaven in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, both Peter and Wendy Lewis were exceedingly personable and accommodating. From the moment they quickly responded to my questions via email, to when they sent me their Welcome Information Packet (which was so remarkably complete and straight forward, that I didn't have any additional questions about the cabin or local area). Because of the thorough information and prompt attention the Lewis’s provided me, I could tell that they genuinely cared about our stay. Without a doubt, I knew I had found the perfect cabin for myself, my family and my dogs too! Actually, the cabin and location exceeded my expectations tenfold! The cabin was well-equipped, remarkably clean, wonderfully comfortable, sweetly decorated, in great condition and absolutely secure. Throughout our stay, my family and I had a real sense of relaxation in our beautiful surroundings. We truly gained a peace of mind in the wonderful environment the cabin and forest provided. I will forever cherish my memories of this cabin: The spacious wooden deck surrounded by the forest trees in the cool breeze. The glittering stars at night. Playing board games by the stone hearth in the wooden A-frame Great Room. The quiet dawn illuminating the cabin through the floor-to-ceiling windows. These are just some of the many new memories I was able to make and share with my family at the Lewis cabin. We look forward to returning to this sweet bit of heaven for many seasons to come! A wonderfully charming, perfect cabin in a truly peaceful location!

Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely. We used it as a home base while looking for properties in Lake Arrowhead. Great location for us. Clean, cute and quiet. Everything you would need. Wonderful info binders.

Warm, but thunderstorms rolled in and we had rain. In fact, three days of rain but that didn't stop us. I even loved sitting on the balcony in the rain, (not a downpour). It felt like home, which was nice because it reminded me of our place in Mammoth. To new memories in Lake Arrowhead.

Thanks for letting us rent your home away from home.

Wouldn't Change a Thing

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect in every way for our stay. It was myself, spouse and two dogs. The location is a short drive to Blue Jay, the Arrowhead lake and other areas as well (we had a fantastic dinner at The Grill at the Antlers Inn – Twin Peaks).

The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The place itself is large and comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen (cookware, place settings, knives, spices, etc.). All of the furniture is extremely comfortable. The place could’ve easily handled another family during our stay and we would not have felt crowded.

Having access to the passes and being able to walk around Lake Arrowhead was a nice, added bonus and one which we did not think was important…but it was. The owners are extremely responsive. We had a very minor issue when we arrived and they responded immediately and went out of their way to get it resolved.

I would highly recommend this place and we definitely hope to stay there again.

We are so grateful we found this cabin. The entire process was smooth and easy. Peter and Wendy Lewis provide clear instructions along the way and they felt genuinely concerned for our family's comfort and enjoyment. The cabin is very clean and well stocked. We tried our best to take care of everything because it felt like home! It was a beautiful weekend. Thank you.

Peaceful and accomodating -- wonderful stay for a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay! Peter and Wendy's home is clean and the furniture is all in good condition. The master bed was very comfortable. The bathrooms are newer / updated and felt fresh and clean. We were especially impressed by the tools / pans / etc. available in the kitchen. Traveling with a toddler it was preferable to make meals at home, and we had no problem finding everything we needed. Additionally, when I contacted Peter a couple of times with questions, he was quick to respond and very helpful. Thank you again -- we'll be back!
