About the property

Whether you're looking for a relaxing lakeside getaway or a base camp for all your many outdoor adventures, you'll find this stylish property ideally located to experience everything Lake Arrowhead has to offer. Be sure to try the 2 kayaks and 2 mountain bikes available to use at the property,!

THE PROPERTY

The ultimate vacation awaits you at this gorgeous 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom house, snugly secured in the dense woods of Lake Arrowhead. With enough sleeping arrangements for 8 guests, this property is a terrific size and layout for a large family or multiple families traveling together. Pinch yourself to remember you're not in the Swiss Alps as you step inside the home's spacious yet warm interior, featuring high-end custom Alpine Swiss furniture developed by a renowned Los Angeles designer to the stars! Everything you need to feel as comfortable as possible is here, including in-unit laundry machines, high-speed wireless internet access, and a fully equipped kitchen, where you'll love preparing your family's favorite home-cooked meals.

Count on spending your vacation evenings unwinding outside on the expansive deck, where you can socialize while watching Lake Arrowhead through the pine branches as it calmly ripples in the evening breeze. If you'd prefer to spend your downtime indoors, curl up by the toasty living room fireplace with a good book as the kids make use of the ground floor game room, which features a foosball table for entertainment. When another peaceful day comes to a close, let the kids enjoy a slumber party in the game room while you retreat to one of the 3 bedrooms to rest up for another exciting day.

THE LOCATION

You simply can't beat this home's outstanding location! At this property, you'll only be about 50 steps away from the water. Look forward to swimming in the lake; you'll have access to 2 private beaches, with available amenities. Grab a paddle and explore the full extent of the lake inside one of the 2 kayaks provided at the home. For those wanting to fish, everything is provided at this home, including bait and chairs! See what you can catch fishing from the kayaks or the Marina docks.

If you're feeling waterlogged, the surrounding area offers plenty of opportunity for other outdoor activities. Take an afternoon hike along the miles of pristine hiking trails in the surrounding National Forest, or take the 2 provided mountain bikes out for a spin. In the winter, skiers and snowboarders will want to visit Snow Valley Ski Resort, which is only a 20-minute drive from the property. When you're ready for some lower energy activities, visit nearby Lake Arrowhead Village and treat yourself to a spa day, go shopping, or dine at one of the many fine restaurants. This property is just minutes from SkyPark Santa's Village. No matter how you choose to spend your time here, this lovely Lake Arrowhead vacation rental chalet will quickly become your newest traveling tradition.

Another perfect weekend in the perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in one year staying at this gorgeous home! We just love the availability (free!!!) of the kayaks and bikes. This time, we took the bikes everywhere: from the private beach club nearby to the village for brunch! We had so much fun. The house is immaculate, gorgeously appointed and in the perfect location. Thanks Stephanie for being such a fantastic hostess and generous owner! We'll be back soon!!!! Rick and Co

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Love the house, it felt like we were home! anything we forgot was there, and anything we can think of was available. The location was perfect, we just walked down the talked and the lake was there. The Stephy was amazing, she provided us with all the places to eat and go.

Would go back for sure =)

Beautiful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful house can't wait to see it in summer time. For my stay they expected snow and boy did we get some but as we arrived to the house the drive way was already cleaned and salted to make sure we arrived safely Teresa was there waiting to greet us. The house is as beautiful outside in, we felt welcomed like if we were staying at a five star hotel. Teresa even bought us a cake for my baby's first birthday how sweet of her! Everything was great and the lake looked beautiful. Too cold to go out but for sure will return in the summer to take advantage of the lake pass and the kayak they provide for us.

Decent Lake Arrowhead option

  • 3 of 5

The house was very spacious, the furnishings and bedding were clean, comfortable and nice. Stephanie and her local assistant were easy to deal with. But the property itself was merely average. The lake access was not nearly as close as advertised in the photos. It was down a LONG flight of stairs that made access difficult for the youngest and oldest members of our party. My father was looking forward to fishing off the pictured dock, but there is no dock access (to be fair the listing does not describe dock access, but the photos led us to believe there would be access). The lake itself was very low and swampy so there was no real beach/lake access walking distance from the property (part of that is due to the drought I'm sure). We used a kayak one day but had to strap it to the top of one our vehicles and take it to the beach club. I can't imagine anyone walking it down the stairs to the swampy bay.

If you are a large group and are planning only cabin based activities this is a fine, affordable option. But of the cabins I've VRBO'd in Lake Arrowhead it falls towards the middle/lower half of the pack.

I wasn't planning on writing a review but last week I got an e-mail from the owner asking me to write a review -- and offering me a 20% discount on a future stay for a five star review. That gave me special motivation to write this review. I always read all the reviews before booking a property and have always trusted that they are honest opinions. I am now questioning some of the five star reviews on this property and wanted to add a truly honest review to the mix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review this property. We are happy to hear you had a positive experience with the hosts and overall enjoyed the house! We are sorry to hear that you felt the lake distance was not to your interpretation. We take pride in creating detailed listings, with maps and photos that accurately portray the property and surrounding areas. We have since added more photos showing the proximity to the lake. As with most lake destinations, the water density will fluctuate due to snow run-off and summer heat evaporation. Review integrity is a value that we hold very high with our homeowners and travelers to build such listings. We openly encourage travelers to provide open and honest feedback. The homeowner has all the best intentions and is looking to generate repeat business thru what they believed was a positive experience for your family. With this said, we abide by the policy's of Homeaway and do not participate in any sort of bribery- whether that be positive or negative. Best, The Evolve Team

Great Family Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent four nights in this spacious home in Lake Arrowhead and enjoyed it all. Plenty of room for all 8 of us with everything we needed The owner was easily accessible for questions when we arrived. The only downsides were the lack of air conditioning (it was a particularly hot few days) and the fact that there was not any usable lake access within walking distance (this could have been due to the low water level). Other than having to get into the car each day to enjoy the lake it was great!

Expecting more than delivered

  • 2 of 5

First and foremost, I want to say that we had a great time, and that is purely based on the fact that we were with family. We chose this particular property that was more expensive than the rest we were looking at because for the outstanding reviews. Theresa and Stephanie were very accommodating with us wanting to check in a couple of hours early which was very nice. However, we told them we had 7 adults and one toddler staying. When we arrived there were only 4 towels to bath. The carpets were smelly and the whole place smelled musty upon arrival along with the overbearing scent of cleaners to hide the smell. The Uppermost toilet has a faulty wax ring under it so the dirty toilet water gushes out of the bottom of the toilet (not overflowing) and seeps through the floor into the kitchen where it waterfalls from the ceiling. There is evidence to support the fact that this has 100% happened before and it was not handled previous to arrival of new guests (we are a family of contractors) there is watermarks. When we contacted Theresa about the toilet she instructed us to turn off the water, which we had already done, and she arrived within an hour to help us with the problem. She cleaned the bathroom floor with bleach which was nice, but the only way she handled the carpet was to soak it up with towels (which we were already low on) when i asked for the carpet to be cleaned she said "of course we will clean it after you leave." So, for the duration of the stay we all had to wear shoes all the time scared of what the carpet may hold. There was no compensation awarded or offered in exchange for having to essentially live in sewage. We understand it is not a hotel and they cannot just switch rooms for us, however it is very disgusting to stay in an environment that is not sanitary.

Owner's Response: First and foremost, we are glad to hear that you had a great time with your family! However, we are very surprised to hear the rest of your feedback about your stay. The home is professionally cleaned between each stay (the carpets are regularly steam cleaned) and this is the first time we've heard complaints of a musty smell. Regarding the plumbing issue described, the home was professionally inspected when it was purchased less than a year ago, and there were no plumbing issues or water damage whatsoever. Since then, there have been 28 successful stays without any issues reported. After your stay a plumber fully inspected the toilet and connected systems and found everything was in good working order, so while the exact cause of the issue you experienced is unclear, it was not due to an existing problem with the house. We are glad to hear that Teresa was able to get to the property within an hour to address the situation as much as possible, but as this all occurred in the evening before your check-out there was no way to get the carpet professionally cleaned before your departure (it has been cleaned since). If the issue had been due to an existing problem with the toilet or plumbing, it likely would have surfaced before the last night of your stay. Instead, since the plumbing issue was likely caused by a member of your group, a refund was not offered, nor was one requested at any time. We're sorry this issue at the end of your stay marred your rental experience, but do not think it is fair to take this out on the home. We hope that the reviews posted by other travelers speak for themselves! ~ The Evolve Team
