Located at 5200 feet above sea level, this charming 1950's cottage is locally known as Hobbit Hollow. All seasons are wonderful... Summer months are mild with temperatures averaging in the mid 70's fahrenheit providing the perfect climate for boating, sailing or an outdoor barbecue. Fall is beautiful with autumn color and weather cool enough to enjoy a fire in the fireplace. Local skiing at Snow Summit; snow from as early as November until as late is April... February/March is when we typically get the most snow of the year. Spring is late in the mountains; May/June is when the daffodils, tulips, iris bulbs, dogwood trees and rhododendron bushes are in full bloom.

We have owned 'Hobbit Hollow' for over 12 years now. We've enjoyed wonderful vacations with friends and family and are happy to share this special hideaway with others now.
Cedar, pine and dogwood trees tower over the large stone patio and provide a shade canopy on sunny summer days. At the side stone patio is an outdoor fireplace, adjacent is a built-in barbecue with rotisserie to grill a special meal. A quick nap in the hammock breathing the fresh Alpine air at this altitude will alter your attitude.. help you forget your worries and cares!

The living room also has a large window with lake, forest, patio and garden views. Two master suites; one is referred to as 'The Red Room' and the other 'The Blue Room'... each has a queen size bed.

Charming romantic retreat. Quality furnishings
Thank you for opening your mountain house to us. It was just what the doctor ordered. Peace, tranquility, beauty and fresh air. We had so much fun together this weekend. It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary!
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Hobbit Hollow, in Lake Arrowhead, CA. We've rented other homes in the area before during the Christmas holidays, but this one was by far our favorite. Everything was better than the photographs could convey. The kitchen was well stocked and equipped (including a Nespresso machine!), the entire cabin was beautifully and comfortable furnished, the bathrooms were clean, and the household systems (the fireplace, the showers & bathrooms, the washing machine & dryer, the dishwasher, the heater, the TV and digital systems) worked spectacularly well. We didn't get snow during our stay, but the cabin is peaceful and beautiful no matter the weather. The owner, Mark, could not have been more helpful or hospitable. We hope to return someday.
Awesome place to stay, very well kept. The design of the house really makes you feel like you're in the mountains. We'll definitely be coming back for snowboard season.
We fell in love with the photos of the cabin, but were even more surprised that it was even better than we had hoped! The house and property are so well cared for and expertly decorated. It was like we had the most gracious hosts without them even being there. Rooms were clean and lovely. No traffic outside. There was a hammock, espresso machine, board games and DVDs. Mark laid out a welcome basket for us when we arrived... The perfect getaway. House was not air conditioned, but the windows kept it nice and cool. If you need a respite, this is your place.
We have had the pleasure of several vacations in this home and every time we walk through the beautiful Dutch doors I get a sense of "awe and ahhhh." Not only is this house absolutely charming it is also incredibly elegant. It features a gourmet kitchen fit for a chef, huge wood burning fireplace in the incredibly comfortable and open living room, and phenomenal wood paneling throughout the home which gives the lovely feeling of living on a ship. This vacation home could easily grace the cover of any decorator magazine. Now, that's just the indoors. Step outside onto the magnificent patio with a table that seats at least six, for a special outdoor dinner under the stars and an additional side patio that features a top-of-the-line outdoor grill and another large sitting area. And, don't forget to lay on the hammock hanging amongst the trees. I really cannot say enough good about this Very Special home and I promise that you will not be disappointed!
Ever since we left Hobbit Hollow, our three kids have been clamoring to go back. We had a magical stay at this perfect little mountain getaway. It is decorated perfectly for just what it is, with fine furnishings and an exquisitely outfitted kitchen. The yard and surrounding grounds offer abundant space for kids to explore or for adults to hang out. The beds were amazingly comfortable, in fact, the entire home was cozy and warm. We were there during the summer, so we didn't have a fire, but it just begs for a crackling log in the fireplace with a good book to snuggle up with. We highly recommend a stay here and can testify that the owner, Mark, is available to ensure your stay is pleasant and memorable.
Our stay Hobbit Hollow was an absolute perfect cabin weekend getaway!
We live in Newport Beach and with my family in town from Connecticut, we desired a relaxing weekend where we could get out of town for a few days and experience nature. Upon arrival, the gorgeous stacked stone landscaping and rustic exterior instantly transferred us to another time! The delightful two bedroom cottage was well appointed with charming furnishings and amenities that made our stay cozy and effortless. While the location was less than 10 minutes drive to the Village, we felt so comfortable that we hardly left all weekend. The patio and BBQ area was huge and allowed us to spend much of our time outdoors enjoying the gorgeous scenery. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools needed to create virtually any kind of dish and there were stacks of DVDs and games to keep you entertained. My only critiques would be that the process to work the DVD player be simplified and there be a list of where things are and how they work (i.e. extension cords for the outdoor table lights, emergency phone numbers, instructions for the TV & DVD, etc.). Other than that, I would certainly recommend Hobbit Hollow and look forward to another stay!
