About the property

Arrowhead's Best Restored Vintage Cabin- Updated -2 Bedrooms with loft -Sleeps 6

“DeVilla” is our home away from home. When you walk in the cabin door, it takes you back to a simpler time. This Vintage Lake Arrowhead Cabin has been fully restored back to its classic charm yet is up to date in every way. A great place for a romantic escape or a family getaway.

The cabin sits above Lake Arrowhead and is a short drive to the Lake and the Village. It is 5 minutes to Sky Park - Santa's Village.

The front deck, rear patio, and the fenced side yards are great for outdoor dining and entertainment. Level parking for up to 3 cars.

The "decorator" lake house décor is complimented by the vintage stained knotty pine walls, wood ceiling, and wood floors with a red brick fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a new flat screen TV. The large wood dining table and chairs can be expanded to seat 8 comfortably for dinner and games. (See pictures)

The kitchen with its restored vintage stove is fully equipped. It is well-stocked with all your cooking needs, dishes, flatware and glasses. Appliances include microwave, toaster, coffee pot, as well as an electric hand mixer.

“DeVilla” has 2 bedrooms and a loft with 1 full bathroom with a tub/shower.

The Master bedroom is upstairs with a queen size bed and a new flat screen TV. Look at the view of the lake from this window!

The loft is right off the master and is a great reading area with a twin bed.

DeVilla’s signature “Bunk Room" is the second bedroom. It has two twin size bunk beds built in. Adults and children alike love this room. You have to check this out.

It sleeps 5 people, 6 person could be on the couch.

Enjoy the very fast Wi-Fi. In the living room we have Apple TV and Apple TV in the master bedroom. There is a selection of DVDs and VHS tapes, including popular movies and Disney classics.

Outside there is a front deck which is our go to spot for outside dining. The rear patio deck has a Gas BBQ and a set of Adirondack chairs with a great fenced yard. Extra wide street level driveway with easy access to the side yard (5 steps) and then 8 steps up to the front door.

You can use our "Arrowhead Lake Association beach club pass" that gives you access to the 2 private beach clubs and the ALA hiking trails that surround Lake Arrowhead. It also gives you the ability to fish Lake Arrowhead as our guest. Bring your license.

About Bruce DeVilling

We love Lake Arrowhead. It is 45 minutes from our home in Upland to the cabin in Lake Arrowhead. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and Nancy is from Buffalo. We love southern California as it allows us to enjoy California at its best.

Bruce DeVilling purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bruce DeVilling chose Lake Arrowhead

It really is a Vintage 1938 Cabin that is up to date in every way.

It takes you back to a simpler time yet allows you to enjoy the benefits of today.

In the mountains, close to the lake, close to the village, and in Lake Arrowhead.

The most lovely Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin over Thanksgiving week, and were absolutely charmed by the place. It was perfect and cozy and had all of the kitchen and home items we needed for a very comfortable and easy vacation. The house is close to town for fun day activities and eating out - we also went snow tubing near Big Bear (45 min away). The owners were so responsive and accommodating and flexible, and the house was full of lovely touches that made it feel like home. The bunk room is perfect and whimsical for kids, and the house has plenty of sleeping room. We are already planning another long weekend at this exact location. Perfect getaway!

Cozy and comfortable mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Devilla was a great experience for our family. The owner was very polite and accommodating, the cabin was comfortable, and the neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. We could immediately tell how much history this place had, very charming. It had everything we needed and more, literally turn key in every respect.

We left a personal item behind and the owner mailed it back to us, class move. The cabin itself was a bit "tucked away", which we liked, but there are narrow, steep roads that might not be for everyone. Our minivan had no trouble navigating them, just a travel tip.

The bedding and linens were very nice, comfortable and warm. For those adept at wood fires, the fireplace is awesome. Not huge but had a plenum/fan built in that did a great job of keeping us warm. The weather wasn't warm enough for us to enjoy the patio, but it would be a great place to have lunch or relax & enjoy the sunset.
