About the property

Just remodeled!!! Immaculate 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2, new deck.


The quaint “Hershey Cabin”, originally owned as a hunting cabin by members of the Hershey (chocolate) family, is nestled on the lush side of the Lake Arrowhead, in historic Arrowhead Villas. It is situated about 1 mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village at an elevation of 5,500 feet. This is not just another rental house, but rather a very quiet, inviting, immaculate and comfortable mountain cabin. If the Hershey Cabin is booked, try our exquisite cottage - the five star rated Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage, by typing 634044 in the search box (above, under the VRBO logo), and click "search".


The Hershey Cabin is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away or for an extended vacation. Totally renovated a couple of years ago, it has been tastefully decorated to make it the perfect retreat for a private getaway. Every piece of furniture and art has been hand selected by the owners who have a passion for incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both antiques and modern furnishings, blended together, to provide the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth of a vintage Lake Arrowhead cabin.

During the renovation we basically went down to the studs and rebuilt much of the cabin from the ground up – yet we saved the original footprint and the rustic knotty pine and redwood inside, so that the cabin still has that old fashioned charm. The cabin has a beautifully hand crafted rock fireplace, massive pine mantel, porcelain/slate tile floors with traditional wool rugs, central forced air heating, dual pane windows and fully insulated walls and ceilings. Above the fireplace is a 40 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV (we have high speed internet/Wi-Fi and Netflix and a DVD player), but no cable TV. The living room is a perfect place to snuggle up by the fire and read or watch a movie.

The bathroom is brand new - with lots of tile, granite and a frameless glass shower. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with gorgeous granite counter tops, new cupboards and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home. Throughout the cabin, we completely replaced all wiring, light fixtures, pipes, drains and even the water heater.

The bedroom has knotty pine walls and ceiling, and the view out the windows makes you feel as if you are nestled in a tree house. The bed has a new memory foam mattress along with beautiful cozy bedding. Outside the bedroom is a brand new wrap-around deck, with bistro tables and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a meal!

In front of the cabin we built a retaining wall to allow easy parking along with concrete steps and a wrought iron banister up to the front door. The cabin is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find at night, as it has a lighted address. It is surrounded by beautiful firs, pines, maples and cedar trees, along with a nicely landscaped yard. The siding of the cabin is classic craftsman style shake.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Unlike many cabins, WE PROVIDE A LAKE PASS so you have access to hike the trails around the lake, use the two beach clubs, and fish from the shore or use the Arrowhead Lake Association fishing dock.

The Lake Arrowhead area is a little hidden gem, with a quaint village, dinner theater (Tudor House), movie theater, wonderful local restaurants and various shopping opportunities. If you are looking for a romantic get-away, or just a place to relax and have fun, this is just the place. Lake Arrowhead celebrates all four seasons - warm summer days, fall colors, snow in the winter, and a beautiful spring.

About Paul and Janice

My wife and I were married in 1975. We love going on vacations, especially to the mountains - both of our grandparents owned cabins in either Big Bear or Crestline. We both recently retired! My wife's fields of expertise are education/teaching and interior design. I was a security consultant and do property management on the side. We love the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, biking etc.

Paul and Janice purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Paul and Janice chose Lake Arrowhead

We were visiting Lake Arrowhead Village getting an ice tea at MacDonald when our son spotted an ad for a one bedroom cabin at a local realtor's office. We weren't actually looking for a cabin but this one quickly peaked our interest. After checking out over 50 cabins... we chose this one because we liked the old cabin feel, the quiet location, and the lush trees on the property.

The property, which was originally owned by members of the Hershey (chocolate) Family as a simple hunting cabin, was in major need of repair. My wife and I spent the summer and fall remodeling and renovating the cabin from the ground up. We saved the redwood and knotty pine interiors which give it the classic feel.

We also own and rent out the gorgeous BURNT MILL CANYON COTTAGE in Lake Arrowhead. You can find the cottage by searching VRBO or HomeAway for property #634044.

What makes this cabin unique

At about 1/2 the price of a room at Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa you get your own, gorgeous, immaculate, quiet, private one bedroom cabin. The kitchen is completely equipped with new dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc. The appliances are all new, including the dishwasher and washer and dryer. For those of you who are skiers, we have a ski rack in the back yard. If you just want to sit back and read, we have all sorts of magazines for your reading pleasure.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, and to use the lake, the beach clubs, and the lake trail, you must have a "Beach Club Membership" pass. We have the pass for your use. In addition, we have an "Adventure Pass" which allows you to park your car while you go hiking in the San Bernardino Forest. For those of you who like to hike, we have 3 books on hiking in the San Bernardino Mountains, as well as maps and other information.

Upon arrival, you will find a welcome basket including Hershey's chocolates, coffee, tea etc. We have a great house keeper who keeps the cabin immaculate, and we also have a wonderful neighbor who checks out the cabin and makes sure it is ready for you when you come up.

You will LOVE the Tree House Bedroom!

  • 5 of 5

We just LOVED the Hershey Cabin. The place is an absolute beautifully and meticulously maintained cabin, from the ground up. A rare balance between modern amenities and secluded "hidden cabin in the woods" charm that didn't sacrifice coziness. It could not have been more perfect. Everything within is labeled from how to turn on the fireplace to how to access Netflix. We absolutely loved the "tree house bedroom" with the beautiful view of the trees outside (decorated for Christmas). Spotless, everything in perfect working order, with thoughtful little amenities added throughout. Whenever we stay in Lake Arrowhead, this will be our "go to" place, hands down,

Quiet yet close

  • 5 of 5

The quality of this cabin is just as described. Cozy and comfortable for 2 with all the amenities. A short drive from the village area, it is just far enough a way to be quiet an peaceful. All dealings with the owners were fantastic. I will be staying here again in the future.

Cute Cabin for 2

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Everything was perfect. Great living area, well appointed kitchen, and BEAUTIFUL views from the bedroom. You can tell the owners take great pride in their house and every time I emailed the owner he got back to me right away. I highly recommend renting here and as a bonus it's only 10 minutes from town. My husband and I will definitely be staying here again!

Sleeping in a tree house!

  • 5 of 5

Waking up from the comfy bed and looking directly out to the beautiful view of the treetops is quite special. We were treated to rain showers and spectacular rainbow! The cabin is lovely and shows exceptional attention to detail. If you enjoy cooking they have everything you need in the well appointed kitchen. A real plus for me is the fireplace-just light the match and viola the perfect fire emerges from the gas logs and continues as long as you wish. This exquisite property is truly a giant step above the usual vacation rental experience. Additionally, we enjoyed LouEddie's for pizza and microbrew in Sky Forest and Bill's Villager in Blue Jay for brunch. Thank you again Paul for your courteous and timely customer service which helped make our weekend getaway in Lake Arrowhead a truly pleasurable time.

Owner's Response: Shirlene, Thanks so much for the complement "This exquisite property is truly a step above..." . We are delighted that you got to experience the "beautiful rainbow" - it is fun to be in the cabin during and after a rain storm. Thanks for visiting the Hershey Cabin for a second time - hope you can come back again and again! Paul & Janice

We have just returned from our vacation in beautiful Lake Arrowhead and are so grateful to have stayed in possibly the most elegant, cleanest, comfortably appointed "cabin" in the mountains. The bed was more comfortable than our own and we awoke each morning to a fantastic, scenic wooded view. We enjoyed breakfast each morning in a very modern, high-end kitchen stocked with every pot, pan and utensil needed to cook with ease. The leather furniture was more than comfortable where we chatted and sat cozy before the fire. We felt safe and secure in a lovely, secluded neighborhood a few short minutes from the town and mountain highway. One day we traveled to Big Bear and later to Joshua Tree National Park for a little sightseeing adventure. - it was amazing to take in the views traveling the mountain at 7,000 feet and later walk the desert like the surface of another planet. It was a vacation to well remember and we hope to return next year. Thanks to the owners for providing a great place to relax, play and dream.

Perfect Cabin for Two

  • 5 of 5

The Hershey Cabin is a perfect retreat for two. As many others have said, “It is a gem”. From the moment we stepped through the front door we felt we were “home” and didn’t want to leave. The owners thought of every detail and their sweet cabin was truly immaculate. Waking up to a beautiful sunrise through the pines was a treat. The entire experience was beyond 5 star, including our communications with the owners. We look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you for sharing this special place with us:)

Bootleggers, gamblers, gangsters, trap doors and secret tunnels. Such are the legends of what today is the Tudor House. It began as Club Arrowhead in the Pines, a project of the Atkins Realty Co., which developed Arrowhead Villas and promoted the area as a place to “get away from the cares and worries of city life". Construction began in 1926, with the clubhouse being dedicated on July 4, 1928.

A brochure for Club Arrowhead pictures the sumptuousness of the clubhouse and details the many activities available to members, such as swimming in the huge pool or horseback riding. An associate life membership in Club Arrowhead was offered at $250.

Then the Great Depression hit. During the Great Depression Club Arrowhead became an elegant speakeasy with a trap door built beneath the bar to dispose of the bottles in case it was necessary. In the late 30's and early 40's, the infamous mobster Bugsy Siegel took over Club Arrowhead and ran a very successful gambling casino in the basement. He is also reputed to have operated a bordello across the street in a cottage belonging to the club (now the Fern Manor).

The Tudor House is now a wonderful dinner theater/ supper club/ concert hall etc. The Tudor House is located at 800 Arrowhead Villa Road, about a half mile from our cabin.
