*PRIVACY: The APT is separate-no sharing of space, privacy barriers and few neighbors-as we live on a private road with only a couple in full time residence.
You also get a PRIVATE PATIO to sit, lounge, eat, read, drink and be merry. You have full lake views. (see pics) We just added a new Drinking Bar and a BBQ to the private patio.
*QUIET & GREAT LOCATION: We are on a private road and not near any major highways- so we are quiet-most of the time. Yet, super close to the LAKE (less than 1/2 mi as crow flies n 1.3 mile hike to lake) Blue Jay & Lake Arrowhead, Shops & Restaurants. You can even HIKE in the Forest (100yds away) Our Guests have said that it's super quiet and far less noise than any Hotel. Those that have stayed on the Lake or in the Village have said they prefer it here. We also have Sound Proofing in the APT and in the rest of the house, which goes a long way to reduce noise. Solid core wood doors are throughout the APT.
*FREE HI SPEED WIFI: you can even stream your Netflix Movies if you are a member (previous Guests have been happy about this)
*ALL PREMIUM MOVIE CHANNELS: If you want to just relax and watch TV, well, we have EVERY premium movie channel, DVD player & MP3, CD & iPod /IPhone Player-recharger.
*GREAT TEMP CONTROL: Central Heating PLUS cute Fireplace/Heaters in the Bedroom and Dining Room to stay extra toasty or just to enjoy the flames year round. In the summer that level stays very cool and never needs AC. People rave about those cute Fireplaces and always want to know where we got them.
*FINE DINING for 4: inside or Outside (depending upon weather). Inside a pretty glass round table or the bar or the large game table in the Living room.
OUTSIDE there is a large dining table and chairs. Also, Teak Lounge chairs and tables for snacks, reading, cocktails or laptops. (see pics) We just got a BBQ (bring Charcoal and lighter fluid) and we just built a Drinking bar for the private patio. See pics on the Fb page called, Stardust Chalet.
*PET FRIENDLY-we welcome responsible Pet Owners. We love our PETS and want other responsible Pet Owners to be able to bring their Pets on vacation. We also have dogs who can play with your dog. We have even been known to Pet sit.
*FAIRY/ANGEL FOUNTAIN & FLOWERS: 3 fountains run year round (weather permitting) to provide a relaxing and tranquil environment. Pretty flowers are all around the grounds in the Spring, Summer & Fall.
*SUN BATHING or STARGAZING: Unusual for the mountains with lake views but we made a LEVEL lower Yard with full lake views: Do you like stargazing or to get a little sun? Well, there is a level yard area where you can stargaze at night or bring the beach chairs (in small closet) down during the day to take in some Sun rays.
*FIRE PIT--use of our fire pit for trusted guests. (We live in a high risk Fire Area so this is only allowed under certain conditions on the mountains)
*UPGRADES: The property and APT are constantly being upgraded. So, it can improve from one week to the next. Next year we will be providing a Gas Fire Pit to our Guest and enlarging the private patio and screening it in for a LOT of extra space to lounge and sleep and relax. Many MORE features to come.
*SAUNA: We offer the use of our Wet/Dry Outdoor Finnish Sauna to repeat/trusted Guest. Very relaxing.
We just opened (to the public) in late May 2013 and have been booked most of the time. GUESTS seem to repeat that the place is 'Magical' and that it has a great energy in and out. First, they Love the Lake Views and spend a lot of time on the private patio or inside gazing outside. Then they fall in love with the inside of the APT. which is often described as 'Romantic' and Beautiful with many special details and touches.' Guests are thrilled at the close proximity to the Lake & Village-but far enough away have quiet and solitude. They also exclaim delight with the overall decor and the luxurious bathroom and kitchen. We have even received squeals of delight--which were much appreciated! It's what we strive for!
LAKE ARROWHEAD is located about 90 minutes from Beaches, Desert and downtown Los Angeles or Orange County. It's nearest the Ontario Airport..

We love nature, travel, design, garden & DIY projects. We also LOVE Animals and have rescued and fostered for the local rescues. (we don't have kids) We love to travel with our Pets but it's not always easy to do. So, all of those things led us to offer our apartment on Airbnb and now VRBO. We are re-doing our home here in the mountains (it just keeps getting better) and just finished the Rental apartment/ Mother N Law Quarters and are excited for others to come and enjoy it as well. We want you to bring your PET and come and relax, Meditate and unwind and commune with nature and yourself. :-)
We came to the local mountains as children and vacationed here with our family as children and adults. My family fell in love with this house, view and property in the early 90's and we have been improving it ever since.
It's close to the lake but far enough for privacy and quiet.
Lake Arrowhead's benefits: You can enjoy nature and a calm and quiet life and still be only 90 mins (without traffic) from Los Angeles or Orange County or anywhere one needs to be for business.
This home: This house backs up near the National Forest and has some space between us and neighbors. Not a lot of full time neighbors live on our private road so it's usually VERY quiet. We also have a breathtaking Panoramic views of the lake. We have amazing sunsets and sunrises and you can hear the birds, owls and critters throughout--instead of the hustle of the Village and cars. It's close to the lake (1/2 mile as the crow flies) but far back enough to minimize the lake and village noises and traffic. It's an ideal place to unwind while still being close enough to everything you want to do.
