Morningside Chalet is located at the end of a flat cul-de-sac with plenty of parking and no traffic. Our home is adjacent to acres of protected forestland so it is very private, quiet and relaxing but close to everything. It’s perfect for a family getaway or a romantic retreat. Walk down the hill to Blue Jay for shopping, movies, restaurant and grocery store. It’s a three-minute drive or a ten-minute walk to access the lake walking trails. We also offer use of our guest pass to the two private beach clubs (only a five minute drive) for swimming and sunbathing. We have umbrellas, rafts and cooler for your use.

It’s a short five minute drive to Lake Arrowhead Village where you and your family and friends can enjoy the summer concerts, ice cream and candy stores, galleries, shopping, boat trips and dining.

Come in the autumn for beautiful fall color and Oktoberfest or in the winter to ski Snow Valley, a short sixteen mile trip away.

The cabin sleeps six comfortably. Our master has a king bed with a private 3/4 bath while the second bedroom has a queen bed and nearby full bath. Both, bedrooms have beautiful, peaceful views. The large cheerful loft has 2 twin beds (great for kids), flat screen TV, DVD player, DVR, game table, and a closet full of games, puzzles, and books. Additionally, there is a small private deck with a view of the Little Bear Greenbelt.

All the beds have down pillows or optional hypoallergenic pillows, and luxurious new linens, comforters & quilts.

The airy yet cozy chalet has twenty-foot ceilings, eclectic high end furnishings, hardwood floors, an impressive stone fireplace in the great room and a kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The kitchen is stocked with cookware, utensils, flatware, coffeemaker, and everything you’ll need for a 4th of July barbeque to Christmas dinner.

The ultra clean bathrooms also have granite counter tops, plenty of fluffy towels, make-up or shaving mirrors, hair dryers and personal soaps.

There are four flat screens TVs equipped with Direct TV, DVRs and an X-Box with games and NetFlix. Each TV has it’s own DVD player. Our great room TV has a sound system that will also accommodate your own Ipod or Iphone for music and the DVD player also plays CDs. We offer free WI-fi, internet service and land line telephone. We have two additional large decks with comfortable furniture, barbeque, umbrellas and dining table.

Very romantic, also great for family fun and those over 55 (as long as 10 steps down to the front door aren't an issue). People with alternative lifestyles are welcome.

Pack your clothes, food and family or friends and come up and escape the city.

This is not a party house and we ask that you respect us (and our neighbors) by not renting from us if this is what you are looking for.

About Ray and Christie

Ray grew up in the mid-west. Christie grew up in Southern California. We met while both working on the road with a famous rock band in the seventies. We dated briefly at that time and then went our separate ways. Twenty years later, we met again, fell in love and were married. We just celebrated our thirteenth anniversary.

Ray and Christie purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Ray and Christie chose Lake Arrowhead

Christie had vacationed in Arrowhead since she was a child. When we reunited this became our favorite vacation spot as a couple. It's always been our dream to buy a home here. It has finally become a reality. Its close proximity to our home in Ventura County makes it a perfect quick escape from our busy work lives. We love it so much we plan to retire here in the future.

What makes this chalet unique

It is just a spectacular house. We walked in and saw the 20 foot beam ceilings, floor to ceiling fireplace, wall of windows and huge deck and fell in love. Our home

is located at the end of the street so it is very quiet and feels far away from everything. It's really just above Blue Jay and at the west end of the lake. If there weren't so many beautiful trees we would have a lake view. We have plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Would love to stay here for another week or two! Reggie loved your deck with squirrels and jays to keep him alert-also our long walks around the neighborhood. Thanks so much!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Ray and Christi for providing such a nice atmosphere to vacation at! The master and guest bedrooms were wonderful, we loved the peaceful tranquility that surrounded the house and the fact that it was so close to the store and Blue Jay was an extra plus. The kitchen was well appointed and great TV's and channel selection! The large deck had peaceful mountain/tree views and was large with lots of seating and perfect! We recommend it completely, and we'll be back again and again!

Thank you, again and again!

Beautiful home nestled in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this Mountain Chalet and had a glorious, peaceful weekend! The house is beautifully put together with comfy furniture, and all the amenities you need. Warmth exudes all around with the decor, from the stone fireplace to the hardwood floors!! Set back in the woods at the end of the road makes it a very quiet, serene setting. The house is spacious, with enough room for our group of 5 people to feel like we all had our own "space" when we needed it! Our Aussie, Gioi, was with us and welcomed by the owners. It was so great to have her with us, and she loved being in the woods! Ray and Christie had everything we needed for her to be comfortable. I would highly recommend this home as a great "get away"!! It is conveniently located to so many activities and fun places, but when you get back to this amazing house you immediately feel the "Ahhh" of total relaxation! Thank you, R&C, for your kindness and consideration with everything you do for your guests! Meg, Blake, Nick and "Gioi"!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Meg for the nice review. So glad the rain waited for the wedding to be over. You were great guests. We would love to have you all back again, (including good little Gioi) when you come back to Southern California.

A Wonderful Get-away Home

  • 5 of 5

This little chalet was the right fit for us. It is kept clean and has almost all the items you would have or need at home. It’s a really good thing to be able to just show up, settle in and not to have the mini move-in (or out) grief. There is plenty of space for this size house - it’s very comfty. For us, it’s not just about the seclusion get-away, but being with and actively participating with family. We played together, sat on the awesome patio together, cooked and ate together, watched movies and walked together. We reconnected and it was fantastic. Although it’s quiet and peaceful around the area, the location of this home was perfect. It’s on the end of the street with virtually no traffic (cars or people). Surprisingly, there are a lot of rental homes like the chalet, so there are a few places to choose from. Most are in much busier spots. We have NO regret on selecting this home. So, was the purpose of our get-away fulfilled, yes! Did the Morningside Chalet have something to do with it, a big YES! Would we come back? Yes! Thanks again Ray and Christie for sharing your home with us. All the best -jc

The Perfect Getaway Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at the lovely Morningside Chalet for a relaxing winter getaway! We had a wonderful time relaxing, lounging, and taking in the great outdoors! The Morningside Chalet was the perfect retreat house in a beautiful location. It is so well decorated, taken care of, clean, and comfortable. Ray and Christie were very accommodating, friendly, and prompt in their communication resulting in a very easy rental process. I would definitely stay here again!
