Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath Heritage cabin nestled in the trees perfect for 2 people

The 'Wildflower' is a Lake Arrowhead Vintage cabin built in the 1920s. Originally used as housing for the U.S. Forest Service, it has been our family cabin for the last 25 years. The Wildflower has beautiful knotty pine walls, wide plank wood floors and the original brick fireplace. You will love spending snowy winter nights next to a roaring fire in the fireplace watching movies. Or, there is nothing better than enjoying drinks and having starters on the deck in the summer while taking in the nature that surrounds the cabin. Treat yourself and cook a romantic, gourmet meal in our vintage kitchen on the Wedgwood stove. Or, why not read a book in the loft if you just feel like relaxing and doing nothing. For those who love to be on the go, take a walk right out your door through the beautiful streets of Crest Estates which has lots of nature and beautiful trees. There is also the Heaps Peak Arboretum nearby that our guest love and we have "Lake Rights," so you can have access to the trails around the lake and the beach clubs. You will have an incredible nights sleep on the super comfortable queen bed and return home refreshed after your stay here. For those who prefer to be in touch we have high speed wifi. The Wildflower Cabin has a plethora of birds that you can watch all day long as they feed and enjoy the bird bath and feeders out front. We have a book on birds so you can read about each one. If this lovely cabin is reserved, please consider our new cabin, the pristine, incredible “Songbird Cabin,” also just for couples. Please type 788627 in the search box above to find it. Or, email me if you have questions.

The Cabin’s location is key, just off Hwy 18 and 173 in the Crest Estates. The Wildflower Cabin is 1.5 miles, a 3 minute drive or a nice long hike to Lake Arrowhead and The Lake Arrowhead Village where there is shopping and many restaurants to choose from. There is also a movie theater and dinner theater, The Tutor house close by. With easy proximity to the main highway you can get up and down the hill quickly or head on to Snow Valley and Snow Summit for a day of skiing or snow boarding.

The 'Wildflower Cabin,' is a real gem, there is nothing like it on the Mountain. See for yourself and come up for a stay. Lake Arrowhead is an all season resort town. Our guest love the warm summer nights, romantic fall with the change of colors, the winter for the wonderland it becomes with snow and the the beautiful new beginnings spring brings. 'The Wildflower,' has been uniquely designed and remodeled keeping all of the original details made into the perfect place for couples, honeymooner's, babymooner's, mom and daughter, sister, best friends, engagements, artist and writers escapes. If your looking for solitude, privacy and lots of nature, this is the place for you. We hope you will come back and stay in our cabin again and again.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. To have access to the lake, property owners must have "Lake Rights". We are fortunate to be members of the Arrowhead Lake Association and thus affording our cabin "Lake Rights". "Lake Rights," gives you access to hike the trails around the lake and to use the two beach clubs for Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Our cabin is not suitable for children so please do not ask. If you bring children or additional guest you will lose your deposit.

Email me if you have any questions.

About Jolene Clarke

The Clarke family is the second generation to own this one of a kind, historic charmer. The original owner was my mother, Jolene Smith, who fulfilled her dream of having a weekend cabin in Lake Arrowhead in 1995. She loved the yearly wildflowers that surround the cabin, thus the name. Sadly, my mom passed away in 2009. We are forever grateful that she left us with so many great memories and also her most prized possession, The Wildflower Cabin. About us, Gary is from New Jersey and had a career in Medicine and retired in 1999. Me, Jolene, named after my mom, I am a native Californian who grew up 'down the hill,' in Redlands. I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where I received a degree in Interior Design and a teaching credential. I taught Middle School Consumer Economics for 10 years and have worked as and Interior Designer in California, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We now live in Tamarindo, Costa Rica where we own and operate our family business, Villa Andalucia Designer Hotel. Our son Brooks, who has spent most of his life growing up in Costa Rica, works with us. Brooks is our amazing tour guide, boat Capitan and surf instructor. Brooks is also an incredible fly and real fisherman, free diver and all around waterman. Brooks is the Capitan of the “Pica Pica.” in Tamarindo. We are a family run business, come see us in Tamarindo if you ever decide to put Costa Rica on your vacation destination list, we would love to have you. Hospitality is what we do!

Jolene Clarke purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Jolene Clarke chose Lake Arrowhead

It’s no accident that Lake Arrowhead is the getaway choice for Southern Californians and vacationers from around the word. I have been coming here since I was a child and have so many great memories. I am thrilled that I have a small retreat for two to enjoy and love staying here myself on our vacations. There is nothing more beautiful than the Alpine styled Lake Arrowhead Village covered in snow in the winter or the glistening sun on Lake Arrowhead in the summer. Come see for yourself.

What makes this cabin unique

When I drive up and see The Wildflower Cabin it puts a huge smile on my face, I know it will do the same for you. With one bedroom and one bath this cabin is perfect for two people. The best part is that it is a single story with no stairs to climb! I love having the dutch door open and hearing the birds sing in the trees. There is nothing better than cooking up pancakes on the griddle on a cold winter morning with a fresh brewed cup of Costa Rican coffee that I leave for our guest to enjoy. The location is perfect as you can be anywhere, the lake, golf, antiquing, hiking, fishing and skiing or snowboarding in just minutes.

Perfect Little Cabin - Great Location !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and two small doodle-mixes) stayed in this wonderful cabin for over a week while we worked on the remodel of our own cabin nearby. I have to say that Wildflower Cabin is an inspiration for us as far as decor and cabin ambiance! So many little touches that add to comfort and pleasure to the eye. Great location, close to everything, and very quiet. The cabin is exceptionally clean and super comfortable! We hope to be back for another stay in the very near future and thank you Jolene and Gary for allowing us to extend our stay at the last minute! We really appreciated all that Wildflower Cabin had to offer and look forward to returning!

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this cozy cabin and surrounding neighborhood. We had such a relaxing and peaceful few days in this beautiful setting. I was quite content to hang out with our dogs on the deck and finish a few good books while my husband was off on his road bike for several good work-outs around the lake. The neighborhood in which this lovely cabin is situated is stunning. We took the dogs on several walks to enjoy all the beauty and to admire the lovely homes near-by. We appreciated the shade of the pine trees during our outings as the weather was a little warmer than expected. We found a quiet place just to sit among the pines and listen to the sounds of nature. We must have sat for one hour just "being" without the distraction of cell phones. This kind of quiet is good for the soul. Jolene & Gary's cabin is beautifully decorated and oh so charming. It has absolutely everything you need to feel right at home while enjoying lovely Lake Arrowhead. The view out each window is gorgeous and it was wonderful to see all the birds and chipmunks about. We can't thank you enough for sharing your cabin Jolene & Gary and look forward to our return in October. P.S. The cozy reading loft upstairs is perfect! If the weather was rainy, I would have spent my entire time up there with a few good books.

Thanks Jolene, you do such a great job making the cabin a perfect get away for a few days. This was not our first stay and it will not be our last. We love the little cabin and we love Arrowhead. Thanks again, it does not get any better than this.

Very cute. Beautiful location in woods

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is in a beautiful quiet location nestled in giant trees. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and luxurious shower! Bed is very comfortable but a little on the high side for short legged people (like myself). Nice touches are the condiments/spices in the kitchen and toiletries in the bathroom. The deck is perfect for a glass of wine in the evening and listening to bird songs.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, Glad to hear you like the location of the Wildflower and enjoyed the beautiful, majestic trees. I love them too and the patio is a great place to enjoy their beauty plus the many birds. I am happy also to hear the condiments and the bathroom toiletries were enjoyed. I hope you will consider camping back in the future. Jolene and Gary

Our beautiful one story Cabin is located in Crest Estates where it sits on a flat, 1/3 acre lot with beautiful trees. There is green space all around us and beautiful old trees abound. You do not even have to leave our area to take a long beautiful hike in the forest. However, when you are ready to have some sun and fun, The Lake Arrowhead Village is only 1.5 miles, a 3 minute drive away. The Wildflower Cabin is the perfect combination of peaceful mountains and Lake activities. We have Lake rights so you have access to the trails around the Lake or you can fish and or enjoy the Beach Clubs.
