Lakefront Home 5 bedroom, 3 bath home, sleeps 10- 12 and is steps to the lake
We LOVE Lake Arrowhead anytime of year!
Bill purchased this House in 2005
Why Bill chose Lake Arrowhead
The opportunity to buy this Celebrity home with so much history in one of the best locations on Lake Arrowhead was a dream come true. Private, quiet, and close to shopping, restaurants and other conveniences.
What makes this House unique
With so few lakes in California, we had the opportunity to own a lovely lakefront home that has everything you could want in a mountain retreat. It is warm, welcoming and owned by a great American. Our home is steps from the lake, a short walk to Arrowhead Village along a beautiful lake trail and less than a quarter mile to all the best shopping and convenience.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Last minute booking
I booked this house for a last minute getaway for my family. Everything is as advertised and Bill, the property manager, was excellent. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
Chaos and Disappointment
Chaos # 1. I waited two years to rent this cabin (Dick Clark). We arrived on July 26, 2019. After everyone chipped in and brought the groceries in, we immediately started to put groceries in the refrigerator. My daughter noticed that the temperature was at 62 (proof of pictures). Well we figure the housekeepers cleaning the refrigerator set it to this degree. Well, it started to get higher. My daughter-in-law emailed Bill and he said can you please have someone come out. We have $450.00 worth of food we do not want it to go bad. He gets back and says, “No one can come out until next Wednesday” Which is the day before we leave, almost a week later. So, we had three ice chests plus some small ones that we put ice in. We took all the food out and put it in the ice chests.
Fortunately, my son-in-law took it upon himself to clean the coils of the refrigerator. This worked although the ice maker did not make ice so we had to get our own ice.
Chaos # 2: There was a Yellow Jacket nest on the path that takes you down to water. Got a hold of Bill again. And he said no one can come out until Monday. Ok, so everyone sees the yellow jackets coming out of the hole at the bottom of the stairs. We try to stay clear of the hole, but my oldest grandson got stung first. Monday pest control comes and my daughter shows him where they are and she gets stung. Then another person comes and he said he could see them from the balcony. He said I will get rid of them and by tomorrow morning they will be gone. He was 100% correct and no more yellow jackets to be seen.Chaos # 3. My daughter, daughter-in-law and myself smelled gas from the grill. Called Bill again. He said put fans around the smell. And he would get someone out there. Did not give a time. The three of us waited until 4:30 pm that day which was shot for us. The person gets there that is a friend of Bill’s, who had been drinking (arrives by boat) and who was rude on the phone to my daughter-in-law and rude to everyone and argued with us about whether it was propane or natural gas! Who cares? It’s leaking gas! He fixed it by turning off the gas and did apologize for not getting there sooner. After no more chaos we were able as a family to enjoy the few days left that we had on the lake. But I shouldn’t have had to deal with things that were Bill’s responsibility not mine.
I know Mr. Clark (Dick Clark) would of never talk to us in this manner or as a landlord not get things fixed. Sad Bill never said sorry.
It is disappointing when we have a guest who's expectations are not met, or circumstances result in a less than memorable trip. I am truly sorry that Anna and her family did have the vacation they hoped for. As circumstance came up, we did our best to reconcile them. Unfortunately, some of the issues were beyond our control. Some were relatively quick fixes as was addressed. Other issues (such as bee stings) although unfortunate are outside our control. We know that Anna's intent was to have the best vacation possible for her family and we hope that Anna and her family will find the next vacation they take will exceed her expectations.
I believe this was an isolated situation, as our guest reviews just prior and immediately following their stay were very positive. We do take our guest comments to heart and the owners do their best to make improvements based on guest comments. In Anna's case, she wanted a paddle board and the owners went out and purchased one so that Anna's family would have one for their vacation.
FUN,FUN,FUN 7 MORE FUN
THIS :CHATEAU WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. PROOF: THERE WERE 4 BOYS, AGES II TO 14 WHO SPENT 8-10 HRS EACH DAY ON THE DOCK, LAKE, DIVING, SWIMMING AND CATCHING FOOTBALL PASSES. THE ADULTS ENJOYED JUST SITTING, RESTING, NAPPING, AND, OF COURSE, EATING. TELEVISION, OTHER THAN LISTENING TO MUSIC, WAS HARDLY WATCHED. THE BALCONIES ARE GREAT AREAS FOR GOOD CONVERSATION COUPLED WITH WINE. I COULD GO ON AND ON, BUT SUFFICE IT STAY WE WISHED FOR MORE TIME WITH DICK CLARK'S GREAT ESCAPE. WE WILL RETURN. TO EVERYONE WHO READS THIS DON'T DELAY YOU'LL REGRET IT.
This property worked great for our family reunion, thank you so much for letting us stay at the house.
A step back in time
I rented this house for part of my wedding party for my wedding weekend. I stayed in another house a few doors down but visited the house a few times. The owners work hard to preserve this house and it does not disappoint. My bridesmaids and their significant others that stayed in the house absolutely loved it. The decorations, the space, the view. The kitchen is pretty updated and fulfilled their needs with ease. There are so many hidden gems in the house so make sure you take the time to look at all the details. During my first visit, and every tour I gave after to guests and friends over the weekend, it feels like the house just keeps going. My dad mentioned they utilize their space very well and I have to agree. Finding it at first can be a little difficult since it is on a private drive but after visiting it once it is easy to find. The location is very convenient- there's a grocery store and movie theater down the street. It is within a 5 min drive (15-20 min walk) from the resort and therefore it is also very close to town. Absolutely no complaints from me or the other guests.
If you are into staying at a lovely mountain cabin and enjoy the seeing some of the memorabilia of American Rock and Roll, then this is the place for you.
Dick and Arlene Clark loved this place for 26 years and it was their favorite hideaway from Tinsel Town. Come and see for yourself!
Property was exactly and described and expected. Fun stay.
