A River Paradise - 300' of private property on the pristine Santa Ana River headwaters. Five acres with a beautiful year-round river. A relaxing private mountain sanctuary intended for guests that are looking for a unique retreat in the San Bernardino Mountains (rural Seven Oaks). A place for rest, rejuvenation and discovery. About 2 hours from Orange County or Los Angeles, yet worlds away. Though your surroundings are authentically rustic, there's no need to rough it: you'll find everything you need in the main house. A wonderful combination of furnishings, location, views and amenities.
Perched on a sunny mountainside, a pristine sanctuary to renew the spirit and refresh the senses. Wander and explore the lovely orchard and you’ll feel the splendor of simpler times. Meditate in the fresh mountain air and the beautiful ambiance of the river landscape. Relax in a comfortable handcrafted log home in the woods. You’ll find a wide selection of music, dozens of inviting books and a cozy, peaceful place just for you.
Handcrafted in 2007 this custom log home is comfortably appointed with antiques and modern amenities. The cabin is kept very clean.

The dining area seats ten with additional seating at the breakfast bar for two. There is also a large picnic table on the deck for 10+.

Best Location on this River!
The Santa Ana River upper headwaters of the river in the San Bernardino Mountains still retain a free flowing character and outstanding natural values. The upper headwaters, including its sparkling waters, scenic verdant meadows, rich riparian habitat, and thick forests of pine, fir, and oak offer an outdoor recreation mecca for hikers, bicyclists and fishermen. Perfect place to reconnect with family and friends in a green and pristine mountain wilderness. Come and surround yourself with the natural beauty and privacy of a wooded landscape.
Give yourself time for writing and hiking, painting and reading and stargazing in this peaceful sanctuary. Sit back and take delight in the breath-taking view from the deck as the sun sets and listen to the soothing sounds of nature. Birdwatchers often spot owls, herons, ducks, woodpeckers, hawks and quail.
This is a quality rental for families, perfect for family reunions and quiet retreats.

Originally from the lake country of northern Minnesota. Robert hand-scribed this fabulous home and all the amazing details. Robert likes to tinker and invent. Anna enjoys landscaping this five acre canvas. Their hospitality experience included owning a bed and breakfast in New Zealand. The log house shares this five acre property with the owner’s cabin - 300' away from the house. We respect your privacy, but if you need anything we can assist immediately. We are very interested in making sure your stay is comfortable.

We handcrafted this unique log home ourselves, with much attention to detail. Located in a beautiful green wilderness, the Santa Ana River is unique for So. California - green and pristine. Love the apple blossoms and yucca in the Spring. Bird watching includes herons, owls, quail and hawks. Stars are a lot brighter out here. We encourage our guests to learn about our region's rich history, encouraging stewardship of this rich and unique riparian environment.
Private gate, 1/2 mile to the cabin. Only ten neighbors, all homes are on 5 acres surrounded by 30+ miles of beautiful national forest. Private gate, cabin is 1/4 mile away from the paved road on a private road. Fabulous views. This is not crowded like Big Bear, even on holidays.
RJ…just want to add my 2 cents worth.
We really enjoyed the 2 night stay at your Log cabin. What an accomplishment. My daughter and her husband flew out from Dallas just for my Mom’s 90th birthday celebration, so you know this was a big deal for me and Tammy to have our mom honored like this. Your place was perfect. And added to that was the warm feeling you gave us to be around you. We have been emailing each other back and forth saying how we hope we can all get together again and do a repeat.
this property is in pristine condition. great location with plenty of land for the whole family to enjoy. the owners Anna and R.J Hendrickson were very accommodating made the reservation nice and easy and made us feel welcomed from the moment we stepped foot on their property. definitely coming back for another trip and would definitely recommend this cabin to everyone!!
We enjoyed our stay very much at this log cabin! One of the owners really made us feel at home (Anna). She showed us where everything was; the rooms, where we could go walk around outside, etc. The rules of the cabin were so easy to follow. If everyone does their share in helping to clean on the very last day, the cleaning time goes by so fast...not even an hour and a half, everything was cleaned. Its a very nice, warm and comfy cabin near Angelus Oaks.
Overall we had no problems. We got a quick weekend get-a-away and all our needs were taken cared of. Thank you thank you thank you!
What a great cabin! We were so impressed with the log construction and how cozy it was inside. With seven bedrooms there was space for all of us! We really enjoyed the property and the 25' swing was super fun. So many people commented that it felt like we were worlds away. Thank you!!
The house was great, it was huge and had enough rooms for everyone to have privacy. The location is beautiful and close to LA. I would 100% go back. The owners are awesome and show pride in ownership. They hand built this place and were very helpful showing us around the river and the many nature trails. It is really a rare find. Trust me, rent this place you will love it.
Anna, your promise was totally fulfilled. We wanted a couple of quiet days before our youngest went away to college; and we got them. What we loved the most, was the pride of ownership displayed by you. You so loving shared your home with us, and all the details that went into making it such a beautiful place to visit. Thank you. My dream is to come with my grandchildren one day and share all the outdoor joy you have.
Our group had a fantastic time, We couldn't ask for more! The owners are the best and very accommodating, they even took our group to the river. We will surely recommend to other friends. RJ and Anna, you are the best!
