We were looking for a mountain cabin at Lake Arrowhead to take my kids and grandchildren for a summer family vacation. When we found this property, we were very excited as it also came with access to an 18 foot open bow ski boat to fish and ski on the lake. I have been to many beautiful lakes in California, but I don't think I have found a more pristine setting for some incredible family fun. The lake is gorgeous and the homes surrounding the lake are striking. Steve, the owner, made himself readily available to answer questions or any concerns both before we arrived and during our stay. The cabin was built in 1926 and I enjoyed admiring the wood work and cabinetry as well as the wonderful decor Steve has put together that includes authentic antique furniture and nostalgic and historical accessories including animal mounts on the walls that make this the true mountain cabin experience we were looking for. The cabin had come equipped with tons of books and games to provide hours of fun if you wanted to just hang out inside. My favorite place was hanging out on the outside deck with the blue jays and butterflies under the towering trees and read about the early settlers who arrived in the San Bernardino mountains and the challenges they faced, especially in developing roads up into the high country. Nothing, however, compared to the fun we experienced taking out Steve's boat on the lake. At 6:30 am when the sun was just coming up, the lake is mirror smooth and just gorgeous. We fished, wake-boarded, and generally just toured this amazing body of water. We had access to beach clubs and were able to dock at the beach clubs as well as at Lake Arrowhead Village where the girls were able to shop and pick up some food for our boating experience. The boat is easy to manage, and certainly was big enough to accommodate my wife, two sons, daughter in law and our two granddaughters without difficulty. We had so much fun on the lake and staying at the cabin, we did not want to leave and extended our vacation an extra day. I am looking forward to booking this cabin next year again, as I cannot imagine a more perfect family mountain getaway. If you decide to check it out, I am certain your expectations will be exceeded. Thanks Steve. It was a life changing experience.
