About Karin Watkins

Hi, we are the Watkins Family! We live in San Diego but spend much of our time in Lake Arrowhead at our second home in the mountains. Our kids are now 11 and 14 but were very little when we first purchased this home so you can imagine the many memories we have made here.

Karin Watkins purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Karin Watkins chose Inland Empire

We chose Lake Arrowhead as our second home destination because of the many summers (and a few winters) I had spent here with my parents and sisters, as a child. It felt so familiar, peaceful and fun-filled that I wanted my own children to grow up with these same memories.

What makes this cabin unique

We were drawn to this property because of the tall A-frame ceiling and wall of windows. We love exploring and being adventurous but sitting by the fireplace, in front of those windows, was so peaceful, we could be completely content just staying in and enjoying quiet time together.

Perfect Cabin - GREAT FOR KIDS!

  • 5 of 5

This is a must stay cabin if you are looking to enjoy Lake Arrowhead. It is close to everything! The local grocery store and Starbucks are literally 2 minutes away...but you feel like your miles away from everything in a cozy cabin. The Kitchen has everything you need and the grill works great. Just bring your toothbrush and some food and your settled in. Plenty of room for the kids to play and the game room has more than you will ever need. So much fun!! Karin and Mark are great, they make sure you are comfortable and answer any questions you may have immediately upon your arrival. Great hosts!!

Happy travelers.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great - comfortable and had everything we needed. The only issue was the lack of heat on the third floor. A space heater would have been nice. But there were a lot of blankets...... Karin responded to all questions quickly and was very helpful with information about local places to visit. We would love to come back in the spring.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan~ It was our pleasure having you as a guest! Not sure what's going on with the heat on the 3rd floor, we are driving up there on Monday to check it out. There was a space heater for your use, sorry wish we had known you were needing one. The box was downstairs in the game room and a prior guest must have put the heater in the closet of the upstairs bedroom. Glad you found all the blankets to keep warm! We hope to have you back in the future! Take care for now~ Karin

Beautiful and warm and inviting. It was a family experience to cherish!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed was provided, except your tooth brush and food! There was cable TV, and warm inviting fire place (infact 2!) and close to everything!. The games and downstairs family room had so much for the kids to do, including a pool table and a wi! We all had a wonderful time, and will go back again and again!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed to feel at home, and enjoy everything Lake Arrowhead & surrounding communities have to offer. The kids loved the game room. I enjoyed the puzzles and the kitchen equipment. We all enjoyed the beaches & nature walks.

Fantastic family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend's band plays the Village every year for 4th of July, so we decided to make a family trip out of it this year and stay in town for a few extra days. The Watkins cabin was the perfect fit for our two families with kiddos ranging in age from 9-15.

It's obvious the Watkins' place is not just a rental for them but a home away from home too. They provide ample bedding, linens, and towels, and the kitchen is very well stocked for a variety of meals. Everything was clean and organized, and the decor was very home-ey and comfortable. The amenities are countless, and we found almost everything in working order and as listed -- I say almost because the Wii equipment and the darts should probably be inventoried again :) There were a couple of things missing that were listed and the kiddos were bummed about but certainly not anything that affected our stay! Really, this cabin was perfect for us - spacious and clean and very easy to stay in.

A couple of things to note --

1) We had absolutely zero issues with neighbors. Everyone we ran into was either super friendly or just left us alone.

2) On the holiday, the fireworks can be seen from the deck but are filtered through trees. Nothing a quick journey up the street and a peek between houses couldn't fix!

3) Karin was very quick to answer our questions and very accommodating with our particular issues.

Overall, we loved our little vacation here! What a great cabin to come home to after a day on the lake. Thank you, Watkins family, for sharing your little piece of paradise!!

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the cabin so much! We had plenty of room and the kids loved playing in the game room. The location was perfect and it was a very short drive to The Village (and Coach outlet), market and restaurants. It was so convenient, I would definitely stay there again with my family.

Make sure to check out the 'Village' as well, where you can shop, dine, feed ducks and attend weekend concerts and special holiday events (i.e., Santa, Easter egg hunt, Oktoberfest, etc.). If you're a food/wine lover, try Bin 189 next door for a picturesque dinner or the local pizza place with its' lake view outside deck and an arcade for the kids. Lake Gregory is also a fun summer destination with water slides, water rentals and a grill. If hiking is your thing, you've come to the right place. Fun for the whole family or romantic for a couple's getaway...
