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!

Great property. Owls Nook gave my family of 3 adults and 2 kids plenty of room!

  • 4 of 5

Owls Nook was beautiful and has a great view from the dining room area. Perfect place for early morning coffee or late afternoon lunch. Owls Nook is close by a lake and hiking trails. Overall it was a great place for my 2 kids, 7 and 4 months, as a starter spot for the wilderness.

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is huge and very well thought out. Everything you would need, clean and easy to use. Owner is quick and responsive. Great location. Our dogs loved the fenced yard. We will be staying here again.

Excellent Lodging for Family of Six

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smooth, from reviewing the rental, approval and information flow from the beginning. Contact was established over e-mail, text and the excellent VRBO app. One of the things that really impressed me was directions to the property specific to icy road conditions were included, along with an offer to help if needed. ***** We were very comfortable at the Owls Nook. Everything worked - it was clean - it is tastefully decorated - we loved it! ***** It is located close to shopping, restaurants and the ski resorts. Although the pictures don't do it justice, the covered outdoor space is huge! ***** For those that are reading this review and have already decided on the Wrightwood area, I highly recommend this property, as well as recommending doing business with Barbara and Stu. The VRBO app is excellent, and I plan to keep it on my iPhone for future use. ***** I also recommend the grocery store in town. It is well stocked for a small community market. Clean with excellent service. ***** Although I haven't transacted with the hardware store (a few doors down from the grocery) I walked through and found it excellent in variety for it's size. ***** We have enjoyed most of the eateries in Wrightwood that we have tried, which may just be good luck. The exception is the Grizzly Cafe, which we have been to numerous times. If you're looking for an inexpensive meal, get groceries in town and make it at the Owls Nook. We did. If you want a delicious, quality meal of generous proportions, served by a staff that understand good service, in a pleasant, folksy setting - try this place. I'm sure every future trip to Wrightwood will include at least one meal at the Grizzly Cafe. ***** Tony

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Owls Nook proved to be the perfect place for us to spend Christmas. The Nook has everything you might need for your stay. We comfortably slept 7 and had a great Christmas Eve dinner/birthday celebration for our daughter. The kitchen is well equipped as we basically cooked a Thanksgiving dinner and had everything we needed. There is a nice stash of board games and movies for you to enjoy in case you forget your own, which we did. The owners are great and seem to think of everything you might need to help you have a great time. We had over a foot of snow fall in one night and they called and helped us with snow removal from the property which saved us a lot of work. I cannot express how great this trip was for our family. The cabin is close to everything, a few minutes from the village and the ski resort. I didn't have 1 complaint the entire time we were there as even the neighbors are extremely nice. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.

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:

Pros:

-Well-curated art and decorations

-A lot of outdoor space

-Good major kitchen and bathroom appliances

Cons:

-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.
