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 house in 2014

Why Barbara chose Wrightwood

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 house 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!

Adorable & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at one of Barbara & Stu's rentals and we absolutely LOVED it! Owl's Nook was perfect for us. It was clean and had all of the necessities. I would highly recommend one of their properties that will suit your needs. We will continue coming back to Wrightwood for our yearly tradition!

We really had good stay at Owls Nook.

  • 5 of 5

This place is very clean and cozy. My husband and I was looking for cabin just like this one. We have my sister and her husband visiting from Texas, the only little problem was that the central heating system did not work. I contact the owner, and he was willing to come and take look at it. But we bought wood for fire place and that work just fine.

The fireplace was used by some one before us and they did not clean up the ashes, so my brother in-law cleaned ashes before we use it. I would highly recomed the cabin and we will come back. K.C.

Relaxing, peaceful, large cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Had almost everything we needed, we spent a lot of time enjoying the back yard. It is so peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed playing games on the large dining room cabin. Our favorite cabin in Wrightwood so far!

It was Amazing! My family thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

This was a family road trip from Texas to California with stops along the way (Grand Canyon). We arrived at Owls Nook ready to unpack and unwind for a week. It was Amazing. It was summer so we enjoyed morning coffee on the balconies watching the squirrels and birds in the trees. The kids always found something to do around the cabin when we weren't in town Rialto visiting family. We did go into the local shops for antique shopping and dinner. We also hiked up blue ridge mountain which was an adventure. It may have been to much for my 5 year old but the two 11 year olds survived. Lol, needless to say we had no idea what we were getting into. We met some Amazing people every where we went, the store, hiking, the next door neighbor. Fellow Veterans at that!! Nothing but a positive experience all the way around. Look forward to coming in the winter time.
