About Jake De Ruyter

Judy & I are both retired. Enjoying Life we have had 8 children, all married and now we have 19 grand children and 1 great grandchild. We lived most of our life in Long Beach, Now we both are involved with our Catholic Church Ministry and do some voluntary work. I original with my family immigrated to America from Netherlands. I was one of 13 brothers and sisters. Judy was born in Los Angeles we both grew up around Orange County.

Jake De Ruyter purchased this house in 2006

Why Jake De Ruyter chose Inland Empire

At our 1st Anniversary. Judy and I spent 2 nights a Lake Arrowhead Resorts, I don't think they call it with that name at that time. Later when our kids came, we bought a camp trail and for numerous years We took the family to Dogwood Camp Ground, just out side Blue Jay. Than later Lake Arrowhead Village did a completely demolish and rebuild the village. 5 years Later we could not recognized the place but it still had that mountain air and friendly people. We just love it here, so after retiring we decided that we like to live here part time and get chance to see changes in the season. Hope that you well also enjoy your stay in Lake Arrowhead!

What makes this house unique

Looking for a place to get away from it all? This is it! Beautiful Mountain Home with all the amenities and plenty of room. Whether you want to lounge in a soft leather chair with a good book, or watch the sunset while relaxing in a Jacuzzi [hot tub] overlooking a spectacular hillside garden, this retreat is just the place for some R&R. Of course, if you don't want to completely unplug. There is a TV with premium channels and Internet also available. Mobile phone reception is good. As you can see on the pictures, its truly a place where you can comfortably relax, enjoy the mountain air, read book, Listen to your favorite music or enjoy the Jacuzzi [Hot Tub], wood swing for two, 3 benches to sit enjoy. Judy & I will be looking forward having you stay at our home and build many memories.

A True Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a place to get away from it all? This is it! Beautiful mountain home with all the amenities and plenty of room. Whether you want to lounge in a soft leather chair with a good book, or watch the sunset while relaxing in a hot tub overlooking a spectacular hillside garden, this retreat is just the place for some R&R. Of course, if you don't want to completely unplug, TV with premium channels and Internet were also available, and mobile phone reception was good.

The whole house was so nice you may not want to ever leave, but if you do, it's close enough to all the action around Lake Arrowhead (complete with use of lake association pass) but far enough away from all the traffic to enjoy the sounds of nature. Well situated so that you're only a short drive from the many different mountain activities from Crestline to Big Bear. We particularly liked the visit to the Forest Service watch towers at Keller Peak and Strawberry Peak, and some early morning fishing at nearby Lake Gregory. Just make sure you get a Forest Service Adventure Pass (available at a number of stores and ranger stations) if you want to stay and park your vehicle on any National Forest property, like trail heads and campsites.

Plenty of great places to eat around Lake Arrowhead too (We recommend Aturo's Restaurant and the Cedar Glen Malt Shop... but avoid the malt shop on Wednesday afternoons when the local camp kids come in), but if you don't want to go out the kitchen in this home is large and well equipped for preparing just about any type of meal. Grocery shopping is easy at either Stater Bros. or Jensen's. (the Jensen's we went to had a really nice deli), either just a short drive into town.

Jake and Judy have gone out of their way to make this a warm and inviting place to get away from it all... and they've succeeded! My wife and I, along with our two daughters (ages 10 and 7) felt right at home. If you take care of their place, they'll take care of you.

A great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at Jake and Judy's beautiful cabin! Every little comfort was provided, and the deck was a perfect place to enjoy the peace and quiet of their neighborhood! The big kitchen was really nice and the bedrooms were so very comfortable and spacious! The yard was really beautiful and green and provided a very safe place to play for the little ones! Jake made the arrangements for our stay simple and straightforward and an enjoyable experience! We definitely will be back! Thank you Jake and Judy!

Fantastic experience! Beautiful cabin, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was absolutely wonderful. The cabin is beautiful, very comfortable, quiet and well-equipped. We were first greeted at the front door by a gorgeous sign announcing "Jake and Judy's Mountain Retreat" and we all must confirm, it is a MOUNTAIN RETREAT, for sure! We especially enjoyed sitting on the back deck and relaxing after a day at the village or long hike. It was like being in a tree house with so many beautiful trees surrounding! Sitting in the Jacuzzi and watching the moon rise was also a special moment for the kids and adults alike! The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is spacious and the house has an ideal floor plan. A short ride into Blue Jay or Arrowhead Village is quick and no issue at all! I can't say enough great things about this cabin and its owners! We hope to go back many times again! It was a privilege to stay at this beautiful cabin, and also to meet such wonderful owners over the phone who were so kind and helpful! We will miss Jake and Judy's Mountain Retreat... but fond memories will persist until next we have the wonderful opportunity to visit again! Thank you Jake and Judy for being such wonderful hosts!

Great vacation get away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Jake & Judy's mountain home for Christmas this year and it was absolutely perfect! We had 2 couples, besides ourselves, and a 3 year old with us. Unlike most rental properties this home has 3 bedrooms all with very comfortable KING sized beds! YAY! When we arrived their home was decorated for the Holidays including a Christmas tree. It was very inviting and homey. All the kitchen amenities were there so it made it very easy to cook our Christmas dinner. Fun was had by all and we would definately recommend this home for vacationing. The town of Blue Jay was very close as was the Village of Lake Arrowhead. Unfortunately we didn't have snow for Christmas day but made the drive up to Big Bear for snow tubing! This was one of the best rentals that we have stayed in for Christmas and we'll definately be back! Thanks Jake & Judy !!
