Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Wrightwood - OWLS NOOK

Beautiful 2br home in peaceful setting with tons of outdoor living space.

OWLS NOOK is one of 5 properties in Wrightwood that we own and rent out. You may also be interested in Little Pines cabin, the Hideaway, Reindeer Cottage, or Chickadee.

Set in a tranquil tree-filled lot with easy access to the national forest land, Owls Nook is a stunning, quality-built tri-level home with hardwood floors and pine walls, stainless steel appliances, multiple balconies, decks, and patios, and a large stone fireplace. This cozy 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath home sleeps up to 7 and is the perfect retreat for a family or small group of friends looking for a mountain getaway. It's also perfect for just two if you're looking for a high-end romantic getaway!

Located about a mile from the quaint shops and restaurants in Wrightwood and a short drive to Mountain High ski resort, Owls Nook guests can receive local discounts such as $39 ski passes (blackout dates apply -- inquire for details).


The oversized master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a balcony, king bed, and comfy sofa for reading, plus plenty of closet space to unpack and make yourself at home. The full bathroom is on the same level as the master bedroom. This room also has a twin sized pull-out sofa bed and a twin sized trundle bed.

The 2nd bedroom is outfitted with a double bed and a sleeping nook with a queen, sleeping 4 total. This room also has vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan. It is located on the top level of the home.


The kitchen has all high end stainless appliances including dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave with convection oven, standard oven, large fridge, and all dishes, pots, pans, etc. that you'll need to cook. Kitchen is open to the living room with stone fireplace, flat screen TV with Dish satellite and DVD player,, WIFI, plus movies and games stashed in the cupboards. The dining room has incredible ceiling to floor windows looking out at all the trees and mountains beyond. The half bath on this level also has a front loading washer and dryer.


This is one of the best parts of the home, with sitting areas, balconies, nooks, and patios all over! One of the 3 balconies has a twin daybed for sleeping outside in nice weather; the covered patio out back includes a couch, ceiling fan, and outdoor woodstove. Patio table and grill make for pleasant meals outside under the trees. The peaceful yard is a great place to sit and watch the birds and squirrels. The backyard is completely fenced, and the decks/balconies have gates to keep pets and little ones confined (pets allowed with $30 pet fee).

HAVE MORE THAN 7 PEOPLE? NEED A LITTLE MORE SPACE? Owls Nook can be combined with Chickadee, a 1-bedroom, 1-bath "tiny house" made from the home's previous detached garage featuring woodstove, built-in sauna, and fun sleeping loft in the living room. Chickadee sleeps 4.

About Barbara

We own a handful of vacation homes in Wrightwood and live here as well. We bought our first place to be our own ski cabin, but then we fell in love with the area so much we decided to move here full time. And we fell in love with remodeling cabins so much that we just keep buying more places! We were once featured on an HGTV episode for a remodel project we did on a former home. When we aren't running this fun hobby business, we are both business/economics professors as well as authors (see our most popular book, Living Abroad in China, now in it's 3rd edition).

Barbara purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Barbara chose Inland Empire

From the moment we stepped onto this property we fell in love! Though we immediately recognized its potential as a vacation rental, we are very tempted to move in ourselves! So many places to sit and enjoy morning coffee! Such a peaceful environment.

What makes this cabin unique

The giant wall of windows in the dining room is one of the home's best features. Wall to wall, floor to vaulted ceiling, these windows perfectly frame the giant towering pine trees in the yard and the mountains beyond. Also the multiple balconies, patios and decks, the gourmet kitchen, the stone fireplace, the unique little sleeping nook in the smaller bedroom, the sleeping porch (summer only - unless you're adventurous!).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a nice relaxing family celebration. We had both Owls Nook and Chickadee and it worked great! We love the woodsy decor and the way it is set up for family. Beds were comfy and we had a great time!

Cozy, Unique Cabin Among the Pines; Very Minor Drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a great experience at the Owls Nook over labor day weekend. I would definitely stay here again. A couple pros and cons to sum it up:


-Well-curated art and decorations

-A lot of outdoor space

-Good major kitchen and bathroom appliances


-Coffee maker did not work (will surely be replaced)

-The pullout couch in the master bedroom is uncomfortable and too small for an adult

Overall the place was great and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a quick summer getaway from LA.

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The backyard was beautiful. The fireplace was so relaxing. The kitchen was very functional. And the master bedroom was a treat. Just wish there was a queen bed in the guest bedroom instead of in the "nook." It's tough to have two adult couples stay there. The house is better designed for parents and kids. But everyone slept well.

Very cute, clean and nice views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was adorable! We loved it. It was small but there was plenty of room for each of us. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I enjoyed the backyard set up with seating and fireplace. The three large windows in the front of the cabin offered beautiful views in the morning while I drank my coffee. It was nice having furniture on all the balconies...I can't wait to visit in the summer so we can sit out on the balconies/porches at night or early in the morning. The owners were great too. Although I didn't get to meet them, I emailed them quite often and always received a quick and helpful reply. Overall, it was great and will definitely rent from them again.

We had a awesome time in this vacation rental! House was everything as it was described and more! Even though there was no snow my grandkids enjoyed walking in the wilderness. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet get away!
