Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised that the cottage was everything the website said and more! It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you need to cook a meal or bake cookies. The linens and towels were nicer than we have at home! The beds were comfy and so were the pillows (we are very picky about our pillows!). It is less than a minute to town, but you would never know because it is so quiet. The pool room was a perfect place for adults and kids to bond and play pool. We used the barbeque, which is high quality and worked really well. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Cozy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very cozy for a weekend get away. There is plenty of room for six to eight to relax , take in the views, get some fresh air, and spend quality time with loved ones away from the hustle and bustle of Southern California. The cottage is also conveniently located near the village, lake, shopping and hiking trails. The owners provide a binder with many great suggestions for activities of all sorts. The cottage also has modern amenities (wi-fi, modern television, kitchen appliances, etc), which helps make the stay more comfortable.

Overall great experience. We will definitely visit again soon.

Best Cottage Ever!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this cottage is Magical! We loved being up "in the trees" enjoying such a wonderful view of our beautiful surroundings. The open floor plan of the top level was perfect for our family. We were able to just relax, play games, cozy up with a book (+ iPads) by the wood burning stove, and watch the fresh falling snow through the big windows. The house is very roomy with comfortable bedrooms and nice bathrooms. The little pool hall adjacent to the cottage is great. Our kids had a blast learning to play the game of pool. Fun for the whole family. We really loved the decor. We also loved sledding by the house and at another awesome sledding spot in the neighborhood. It was a short drive to the village and close to the lake which is very convenient. If you're staying at the cottage during heavy snow you should bring tire chains/cables as they will be necessary. The cottage was tidy, well kept, and thankfully lots of amenities are provided. Lastly, the owners were kind and very helpful. Lake Arrowhead is a special place and we are so happy that we found a new family getaway. It was definitely the highlight of our winter break. We'll be back :) Thank You to the Whittingtons!

Great location on a quite street

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great and the location was awesome! It's close to the lake, but away from the noises/people you get at the lakeside. Overall it was clean and well kept. We did notice a few dishes/glasses weren't the cleanest and some of the linens smelled like mildew (our HE washer has the same problem at home), but nothing too bad. Janice was very nice and professional. The separate pool room was a huge bonus! We had fun sledding in the snow right next to the cabin. Thanks for everything Janice.
