Best Location on this River!
The Santa Ana River upper headwaters of the river in the San Bernardino Mountains still retain a free flowing character and outstanding natural values. The upper headwaters, including its sparkling waters, scenic verdant meadows, rich riparian habitat, and thick forests of pine, fir, and oak offer an outdoor recreation mecca for hikers, bicyclists and fishermen. Perfect place to reconnect with family and friends in a green and pristine mountain wilderness. Come and surround yourself with the natural beauty and privacy of a wooded landscape.
Give yourself time for writing and hiking, painting and reading and stargazing in this peaceful sanctuary. Sit back and take delight in the breath-taking view from the deck as the sun sets and listen to the soothing sounds of nature. Birdwatchers often spot owls, herons, ducks, woodpeckers, hawks and quail.
This is a quality rental for families, perfect for family reunions and quiet retreats.

About R.J. Hendrickson
Originally from the lake country of northern Minnesota. Robert hand-scribed this fabulous home and all the amazing details. Robert likes to tinker and invent. Anna enjoys landscaping this five acre canvas. Their hospitality experience included owning a bed and breakfast in New Zealand. The log house shares this five acre property with the owner’s cabin - 300' away from the house. We respect your privacy, but if you need anything we can assist immediately. We are very interested in making sure your stay is comfortable.
R.J. Hendrickson purchased this House in 1997
Why R.J. Hendrickson chose Angelus Oaks
We handcrafted this unique log home ourselves, with much attention to detail. Located in a beautiful green wilderness, the Santa Ana River is unique for So. California - green and pristine. Love the apple blossoms and yucca in the Spring. Bird watching includes herons, owls, quail and hawks. Stars are a lot brighter out here. We encourage our guests to learn about our region's rich history, encouraging stewardship of this rich and unique riparian environment.
What makes this House unique
Private gate, cabin is 1/4 mile away from the paved 7 Oaks Road on a private maintained dirt road. Only ten neighbors, all homes are on 5 acres surrounded by 30+ miles of beautiful national forest. Fabulous views. This is not crowded like Big Bear, even on holidays.

We enjoyed our stay with our family. Nice place for a family gathering.
It was a beautiful setting for a family weekend trip. We really enjoyed ourselves and the location was a perfect glamping getaway.
We had wonderful time💗💗💗
"The spacious house/cabin were of high standard overall. Clean, facilities good. Excellent for our purpose, as we were able to fit all 19 of our group into the house.Perfect accommodation 💗�The kitchen was well equipped , cozy and clean.
My family and I stayed for 2 nights and there are not enough words to describe the wonderful time we had! The owners were very kind and made sure that we felt welcomed. We spend majority of our time outdoors since the it was just so beautiful! The Santa Ana River is nearby so we took many relaxing walks along side it. The kids ate apples and blackberries and enjoyed the swing/treehouse. The home is clean and has such a cozy feel. The owners built this home and we were in awe of their handiwork. Thank you again, Robert and Anna, for sharing your beautiful home!!!!
Family Fun in Angelus Oaks
This property is the perfect log cabin (that sleeps 16!) for our family get a way. We enjoyed the cooler weather and fabulous home that RJ and Anna have created in the beautiful forest of Angelus Oaks. We fished in the Santa Ana and walked around the gorgeous property while collecting the most magnificent pine cones. When we wanted to experience Big Bear, we hopped in the car for a pretty 45 minute drive. The deck has a spectacular view of the mountains. The home had everything we needed and is in wonderful order. We highly recommend this vacation rental property.
A beautiful log home nestled in the mountains surrounded by pines. Very private and tranquil with a hiking trail and a stream running through the property. Large accommodations for a family get together. The owners RJ and Anna made us feel very welcome and shared their knowledge of the area. Highly recommend this beautiful home.
