Morningside Chalet is located at the end of a flat cul-de-sac with plenty of parking and no traffic. Our home is adjacent to acres of protected forestland so it is very private, quiet and relaxing but close to everything. It’s perfect for a family getaway or a romantic retreat. Walk down the hill to Blue Jay for shopping, movies, restaurant and grocery store. It’s a three-minute drive or a ten-minute walk to access the lake walking trails. We also offer use of our guest pass to the two private beach clubs (only a five minute drive) for swimming and sunbathing. We have umbrellas, rafts and cooler for your use.

It’s a short five minute drive to Lake Arrowhead Village where you and your family and friends can enjoy the summer concerts, ice cream and candy stores, galleries, shopping, boat trips and dining.

Come in the autumn for beautiful fall color and Oktoberfest or in the winter to ski Snow Valley, a short sixteen mile trip away.

The cabin sleeps six comfortably. Our master has a king bed with a private 3/4 bath while the second bedroom has a queen bed and nearby full bath. Both, bedrooms have beautiful, peaceful views. The large cheerful loft has 2 twin beds (great for kids), flat screen TV, DVD player, DVR, game table, and a closet full of games, puzzles, and books. Additionally, there is a small private deck with a view of the Little Bear Greenbelt.

All the beds have down pillows or optional hypoallergenic pillows, and luxurious new linens, comforters & quilts.

The airy yet cozy chalet has twenty-foot ceilings, eclectic high end furnishings, hardwood floors, an impressive stone fireplace in the great room and a kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The kitchen is stocked with cookware, utensils, flatware, coffeemaker, and everything you’ll need for a 4th of July barbeque to Christmas dinner.

The ultra clean bathrooms also have granite counter tops, plenty of fluffy towels, make-up or shaving mirrors, hair dryers and personal soaps.

There are four flat screen TVs equipped with Direct TV, DVRs and an X-Box with games and NetFlix. Each TV has it’s own DVD player. Our great room TV has a sound system that will also accommodate your own Ipod or Iphone for music and the DVD player also plays CDs. We offer free WI-fi, internet service and land line telephone. We have two additional large decks with comfortable furniture, barbeque, umbrellas and dining table.

Very romantic, also great for family fun and those over 55 (as long as 10 steps down to the front door aren't an issue). People with alternative lifestyles are welcome.

Pack your clothes, food and family or friends and come up and escape the city.

This is not a party house and we ask that you respect us (and our neighbors) by not renting from us if this is what you are looking for.

About Ray and Christie

Ray grew up in the mid-west. Christie grew up in Southern California. We met while both working on the road with a famous rock band in the seventies. We dated briefly at that time and then went our separate ways. Twenty years later, we met again, fell in love and were married. We just celebrated our thirteenth anniversary.

Ray and Christie purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Ray and Christie chose Inland Empire

Christie had vacationed in Arrowhead since she was a child. When we reunited this became our favorite vacation spot as a couple. It's always been our dream to buy a home here. It has finally become a reality. Its close proximity to our home in Ventura County makes it a perfect quick escape from our busy work lives. We love it so much we plan to retire here in the future.

What makes this chalet unique

It is just a spectacular house. We walked in and saw the 20 foot cathedral ceilings, floor to ceiling fireplace, wall of windows and huge deck and fell in love. Our home

is located at the end of the street so it is very quiet and feels far away from everything. It's really just above Blue Jay and at the west end of the lake. If there weren't so many beautiful trees we would have a lake view. We have plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Would love to stay here for another week or two! Reggie loved your deck with squirrels and jays to keep him alert-also our long walks around the neighborhood. Thanks so much!

Great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

First off we would like to thank Ray and Christie for opening up this beautiful home to our family. It was exactly like the pictures but even better in person. We had great communication from the start and throughout our visit. The house is in a great spot easy to find and a big driveway which was convenient since we drive a big truck. The house was clean and has a tv in every room which was great. Looking outside at the woods is very refreshing and gives you a real feel of nature. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place and come back again. Thank you!!

A relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet cabin has been by far the best and cleanest pet friendly rental we have ever stayed at in Lake Arrowhead. It is nicely furnished with a small, but very functional kitchen, where we prepared some tantalizing meals to add to our mountain experience.

Ray and Christie have thought of everything, anticipating the most common vacation rental issues like how to work tvs and auxiliary equipment, with very detailed but easy to follow instructions. They also provided an extensive list of things to see, do and eat while visiting this mountain paradise.

The location is fantastic for getting around; 20 minutes to Snow Valley for a morning of skiing, with lots of time in the afternoons to explore the village of Lake Arrowhead as well as the equally charming small towns of Blue Jay, Skyforest and Twin Peaks. Even our dog was kept entertained in the cabin watching squirrels racing up and down the pines and cedars surrounding the decks, and she absolutely adored our hikes!

We would highly recommend this for couples and/or family trips. While we never used the loft area, since it was just two of us, I can only imagine how much fun it would be for older kids to have their own place to hang out. Thank you Ray and Christie for helping to make a quick mid-week getaway so special!

Relaxing sunlit getaway

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is a great place to relax and enjoy a book. It has tons of light and is very peaceful. The home is very well organized and thought out so we didn't have to worry about anything while we were there. Did I mention relaxing? We truly enjoyed our stay.

The Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Like in anything, sometime the pictures don't tell an accurate story. In this case, the chalet lived up to the expectation. The cabin was clean and cozy. We had 6 in our party and the accommodations were matched perfectly. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were surprisingly quiet. We had a great time watching it snow and enjoyed watching movies, playing games and putting together a puzzle. The short walk to down town was nice as well as the short drive to the lake. We will definitely be returning to this cabin in the future.

Owner's Response: Dave, Thanks for the nice review. You and your family really had a snow adventure! You came up in the middle of a huge snow storm and got in just in time! So glad you got to enjoy the snow and the weather cleared up the next day for you. Please do come back. You were really fun guests. We really enjoyed your funny texts! All the best. R&C.

A Winter Wonderland Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, and the amenities were plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay overall. It snowed over a foot the night we arrived (12/23/16), so we got a beautiful white Christmas just 2 hours north of sunny San Diego! Since the house was cozy and warm, beautifully decorated, and well stocked (including plenty of wood for the fireplace), we were perfectly comfortable staying inside, but did miss out on exploring the area because of the road conditions. Christie was especially attentive during our entire stay, even though it fell over the Christmas holidays - making sure we were o.k., responding to questions that arose strictly because of the weather situation, etc. Along with the white Christmas, of course, came the after-effort to shovel our way up the steps from the house to the street, and then shovel our way out of the driveway - definitely not a predictable circumstance, and a known possibility ahead of time, but an effort that used up several hours of our stay.

Owner's Response: Barbara, What crazy weather we've had this winter! Christmas was just the beginning. Everyone loves the snow but we have really had A LOT of snow! When we have so much so quickly it can be hard to do anything for a few days. It's my understanding that it is the most snow we've had in about ten years. Typically, the snow plows are up and running 24 hours a day, but it just kept snowing! The timing of your Christmas trip was right in the middle of it all. Your family did have a white Christmas and a real holiday adventure. We are glad you still had a nice time and enjoyed the chalet. Please come back again so that you can enjoy even more of what Lake Arrowhead has to offer. You were wonderful adventurous guests and we look forward to hearing from you again soon!
