Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know we enjoyed our stay at your Lake Arrowhead house. You've created a really comfortable environment there and Lake Arrowhead is a fantastic getaway location. It only took and hour and 45 minutes to get there from Manhattan Beach.

I am sure we'll rent your house again in the future, if possible.

Hi I'm Carol C. I want to start off by saying I appreciate the Whittington for answering my text on my time of arrival because even if you explained very well your directions I am a basket case with directions so thank you very much for that text back. Your cottage was absolutely wonderful. I will always remember this trip and everyone with us was mostly impressed with the furniture and how modern if was but very rustic also, we will be so thankful to your family for your hospitality and more... Hopefully everything was left as you left it for us besides the usual things the big laundry day. Hahaha. Thank you again xoxo. Carol and Chris

Fireworks on the 3rd

  • 4 of 5

Originally when my family decided to visit Arrowhead over the 4th I asked Janice if you could view the fireworks from her deck. She said unfortunately no because the trees blocked the view. We booked anyway. This year the display was scheduled for the 3rd and we did not want to fight the mobs trying to get to the lake for the display so we were in the dining room playing games when we heard a loud boom and then all started yelling because in fact you could see the fireworks. The best viewing spot was from the porch. Many were through the trees but some towering above and most wonderful my granddaughter who was on crutches could watch out the living room window.

We had such a great time we asked for a fifth night.

great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend at the cabin.

Don't think we could have found a better place.

It is large and open, a place for all to sit and be together. the kitchen is nicely equipped. Loved the coffee mugs!

We spent most of our time out on the deck. It would sit 12 easy.

I would give it only a 4 star if I was rating the cabin for kids-the wonderful large deck is very open and our granddaughter had to be watched every second.

but we rented the cabin for the adults.

We thank the owners for sharing this wonderful home with us.

We rented this charming cabin to enjoy the relaxed feel of old Lake Arrowhead and view the dogwoods in Burnt Mill Canyon and we were not disappointed! Clean and comfortable cabin with beautiful master suite, wonderful location for walking too. This cabin has it all!

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was better than we expected! The cleaning service did a really good and detailed job before we came. The floors and bathrooms were very clean. Shelves, cabinets, etc. were well dusted. The rooms were all good size and all the beds were very comfortable. Great wrap around deck/balcony. We used the 2 kayaks and canoe on the lake, which was very close and convenient. Janice was very nice and professional. She answered all our texts and questions. Cottage was spacious and cozy. Decor was nice and charming. The home is very well kept. Would highly recommend!

Family Getaway Success

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful cabin. It was peaceful and relaxing. Far from the city but close to the Village and lake. The property was clean and well-maintained. My daughters had a wonderful time and look forward to going back. Our experience was a very positive one. If I had to chose a negative was that we weren't able to lounge outside and take advantage of the deck as we'd Hope because the cushions to the patio furniture were not available. And parking is a little tight. But, our overall experience was great. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for the experience.
