Overview

About the property

Recently remodeled!!! Immaculate 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2, new deck.

ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/CHILDREN/PETS - (My wife is extremely allergic to pet dander).

Designed “Just for 2”, the Hershey Cabin is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away, anniversary, honeymoon, birthday or for an extended vacation. Originally owned as a hunting cabin by members of the Hershey (chocolate) family, it is nestled on the lush side of Lake Arrowhead, in historic Arrowhead Villas. It is situated about 1 mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village at an elevation of 5,500 feet. The Hershey Cabin is a very inviting, quiet, immaculate and comfortable mountain cabin. If the Hershey Cabin is booked, try our exquisite Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage, by typing 634044 in the VRBO/Homeaway search box.

OUR INTENT IS TO KEEP THE CABIN IN TOP NOTCH SHAPE - THEREFORE IT MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. WE CHARGE EXTRA FOR EXCESSIVE CLEANUP.

Totally renovated a couple of years ago, the cabin has been tastefully decorated to make it the perfect retreat for a private getaway. Every piece of furniture and art has been hand selected by the owners who have a passion for incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both antiques and modern furnishings, blended together, to provide the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth and charm of a vintage Lake Arrowhead cabin.

The Hershey Cabin has rustic knotty pine and redwood walls and ceiling, beautifully hand crafted rock fireplace, massive pine mantel and a porcelain/slate tile floors with traditional wool rugs. It has central forced air heating, dual pane windows and fully insulated walls and ceilings. Above the fireplace is a 40 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV (we have high speed internet/Wi-Fi and Netflix and a DVD player), but no cable TV. The living room is a perfect place to snuggle up by the fire and read or watch a movie.

The new bathroom has lots of tile, granite and a frameless glass shower. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with gorgeous granite counter tops, new cupboards and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home.

The bedroom has knotty pine walls and ceiling, and the view out the windows makes you feel as if you are nestled in a tree house. The bed has a memory foam mattress along with beautiful cozy bedding. Outside the bedroom is a new wrap-around deck, with bistro tables and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a meal!

We have easy paved parking along with concrete steps and a wrought iron banister up to the front door. The cabin is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find at night, as it has a lighted address. It is surrounded by beautiful firs, pines, maples and cedar trees, along with a nicely landscaped yard. The siding of the cabin is classic craftsman style shake.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Unlike many cabins, WE PROVIDE A LAKE PASS so you have access to hike the trails around the lake, use the two beach clubs, and fish from the shore or use the Arrowhead Lake Association fishing dock.

The Lake Arrowhead area is a little hidden gem, with a quaint village, dinner theater (Tudor House), movie theater, wonderful local restaurants and various shopping opportunities. If you are looking for a romantic get-away, or just a place to relax and have fun, this is just the place. Lake Arrowhead celebrates all four seasons - warm summer days, fall colors, snow in the winter, and a beautiful spring.

Licensed: Permit #372-CA20140298-SUP-R 10/2018.

My wife and I look forward to having you as our guests at the Hershey Cabin!

About Paul and Janice

My wife and I were married in 1975. We love going on vacations, especially to the mountains - both of our grandparents owned cabins in either Big Bear or Crestline. We both recently retired! My wife's fields of expertise are education/teaching and interior design. I was a security consultant and do property management on the side. We love the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, biking etc.

Paul and Janice purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Paul and Janice chose Lake Arrowhead

We were visiting Lake Arrowhead Village getting an ice tea at MacDonald when our son spotted an ad for a one bedroom cabin at a local realtor's office. We weren't actually looking for a cabin but this one quickly peaked our interest. After checking out over 50 cabins... we chose this one because we liked the old cabin feel, the quiet location, and the lush trees on the property.

The property, which was originally owned by members of the Hershey (chocolate) Family as a simple hunting cabin, was in major need of repair. My wife and I spent the summer and fall remodeling and renovating the cabin from the ground up. We saved the redwood and knotty pine interiors which give it the classic feel.

We also own and rent out the gorgeous BURNT MILL CANYON COTTAGE in Lake Arrowhead. You can find the cottage by searching VRBO or HomeAway for property #634044.

What makes this cabin unique

At about 1/2 the price of a room at Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa you get your own, gorgeous, immaculate, quiet, private one bedroom cabin. The kitchen is completely equipped with new dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc. The appliances are all new, including the dishwasher and washer and dryer. For those of you who are skiers, we have a ski rack in the back yard. If you just want to sit back and read, we have all sorts of magazines for your reading pleasure.

Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, and to use the lake, the beach clubs, and the lake trail, you must have a "Beach Club Membership" pass. We have the pass for your use. In addition, we have an "Adventure Pass" which allows you to park your car while you go hiking in the San Bernardino Forest. For those of you who like to hike, we have 3 books on hiking in the San Bernardino Mountains, as well as maps and other information.

Upon arrival, you will find a welcome basket including Hershey's chocolates, coffee, tea etc. We have a great house keeper who keeps the cabin immaculate, and we also have a wonderful neighbor who checks out the cabin and makes sure it is ready for you when you come up.

CLUB ARROWHEAD (NOW THE TUDOR HOUSE)

Bootleggers, gamblers, gangsters, trap doors and secret tunnels. Such are the legends of what today is the Tudor House. It began as Club Arrowhead in the Pines, a project of the Atkins Realty Co., which developed Arrowhead Villas and promoted the area as a place to “get away from the cares and worries of city life". Construction began in 1926, with the clubhouse being dedicated on July 4, 1928.

A brochure for Club Arrowhead pictures the sumptuousness of the clubhouse and details the many activities available to members, such as swimming in the huge pool or horseback riding. An associate life membership in Club Arrowhead was offered at $250.

Then the Great Depression hit. During the Great Depression Club Arrowhead became an elegant speakeasy with a trap door built beneath the bar to dispose of the bottles in case it was necessary. In the late 30's and early 40's, the infamous mobster Bugsy Siegel took over Club Arrowhead and ran a very successful gambling casino in the basement. He is also reputed to have operated a bordello across the street in a cottage belonging to the club (now the Fern Manor).

The Tudor House is now a wonderful dinner theater/ supper club/ concert hall etc. The Tudor House is located at 800 Arrowhead Villa Road, about a half mile from our cabin.

Best place for a honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the first 5 nights of our honeymoon at the Hershey Cabin (We were married August 31st up here in the mountains). This cabin is a true gem! The description and photos may seem too good to be true, but believe them! The outside of the cabin was even more beautiful than we expected, and the inside was as immaculate as the photos had led us to hope for. The entire interior, from floors to ceilings, were perfection. The flooring was high quality throughout; the walls and ceilings were all knotty pine and redwood with matching dressers in the bedroom. The furniture was all exceptionally tasteful and appropriate for a classy rustic hideaway! The gas fireplace was gorgeous, surrounded by stone and a beautiful mantelpiece. The lighting included excellent overhead lights and unique lamps. The kitchen was completely updated and exceptionally functional for cooking and eating in. The entire cabin is designed to maximize its space. The new memory foam mattress was very comfortable, and waking to the view of the treetops out the gigantic picture window was stunning. The bathroom was extremely well designed and very usable. There are signs throughout the cabin to explain how to use the various equipment and amenities, and everything is completely tasteful and professional. There is really nothing we could imagine being nicer than it was. The design of this cabin is perfection! Enjoy your mountain getaway in Lake Arrowhead.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hershey cabin. The views are amazing, plenty of activities to do!

  • 4 of 5

I can say the experience was great, the Hershey cabin really feels like "home." Only downside for me was the bed wasn't too comfortable. I did use the trail pass that was provided and enjoyed that however it is a "private lake" so you can't really lounge under any docks to layout! At the cabin Netflix is a plus, I loved how they had pots and pans to cook dinner (: overall, it was a pleasant stay planning to visit sometime in the winter. Thanks Paul and Janice! Amazing cabin!

Owner's Response: Thank you Vanessa for your review and for visiting the Hershey Cabin. The mattress that we had was a memory foam bed that was a little on the firm side, so if you are used to a soft mattress it might have been to firm for you. In order to meet most everyone's needs, I just ordered a new $900 mattress (top rated by Consumer Reports Magazine, and graded medium in softness). It will be in the cabin for future guests. In regards to the lake, if our guests want to lounge on the beach, the same trail pass that lets you in to hike the lake trail, also lets you into two beautiful private beaches that have chaise lounges, sand and snack shacks. One of these beaches (Burnt Mill Beach Club) is just a mile and a half from the cabin. We have maps and detail in the binder at the cabin that show were the beaches are. Thanks again, Paul & Janice

Another "jewel" in Lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at the Burnt Mill cabin we decided to try the Hershey cabin. It did not disappoint. Lovely rustic atmosphere set among the forest trees. Very bright and airy with a wonderful patio to enjoy. Paul and Janice make sure all your needs are met. I guess I will have to toss a coin next time because both cabins are winners! This is one coin toss you can't lose!

Perfect for Two!

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely perfect for two! I have stayed at the lake before with family but this was just my boyfriend and I and it couldn't be better. The size was perfect and not having air conditioning was not a problem, with all the windows and the fans provided it was so breezy! They provided everything you could think of and labeled everything so you know where it goes. The owners were so quick to respond to all of my questions and were very helpful with the process. Plenty of space and happily not a ton of steps to the door from the parking. I can't wait to come back and stay at their other property.

I <3 Historic Hershey Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I just fell in love with this sweet little Historic Hershey Cabin. Both the interior and exterior is kept up perfectly, with clear and helpful instructions on how to help maintain its integrity. It is conveniently located near Lake Arrowhead Village and came with passes which allowed access to both hiking trails and beaches within the area. It was very obvious to me the amount of thought Paul and Janice have put into this cabin and how intentional they were to ensure our stay here was as pleasant as possible. I am so happy I had the chance to call Historic Hershey Cabin my home away from home for at least a couple of days and would without a doubt recommend it to anyone! Hope to visit again one day soon!
