Luxury accommodations in a private gated compound with two lodge buildings on 40 acres overlooking Lake Arrowhead. Just right for family gatherings (up to 22 people), reunions, workshops, and corporate retreats. The posted nightly rental rate includes both the Ponderosa and Sugar Pine Lodges ensuring maximum privacy for our guests. However, in off-season we occasionally rent a single lodge at a reduced rate.
Our outdoor amphitheater is ideal for weddings and other special events, but not included in the lodge rental. Please contact us for separate booking information. If our guests are renting both lodges and require a little extra space, for an extra charge, there is a one-room apartment with a queen bed and a double futon, with a half bath. Otherwise, our outdoor spaces (walking/hiking trails) with views of the lake, are available for use by our guests.
