About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3-4, wood-burning stove, deck, sauna, very cute!

The Hideaway is a charming and cozy cabin studio featuring a private semi-loft room with double bed, 1 bathroom with large shower stall, living room with futon sofa and flat screen TV with Dish Satellite and wifi, and a fully-equipped kitchenette. The antique woodstove is perfect for cozy fires on chilly nights, the private deck is ideal for sipping wine beneath millions of stars!

The oversized detached garage is shared space with the main cabin house ( and features a 2-person sauna, washer & dryer, mountain bikes, sleds, games, 200+ movies, books, rafts, and extra snow-play gear, all shared with guests in the main house.

Exposed beams, wood and brick walls, bamboo and tile floors. Trendy decor. Kitchenette is small but technologically advanced with a ''Half-time oven'' and a one-burner cooktop stove.

This cozy unit is a perfect hideaway for a couple wanting a romantic weekend in the mountains, an individual wanting a private retreat, a small group of close friends hitting the slopes, or a family traveling with 1-2 kids. It's small but VERY charming! We host many couples for their wedding night since Wrightwood is becoming a popular spot for outdoor weddings.

Combine rentals with the main cabin, VRBO 328738, for a total of 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 living areas, 2 kitchens, multiple decks -- a great way to travel with a larger group, especially for those that want their own space to get away from the pack on occasion (or want a bathroom that they don't have to share).

About Barbara

We are a family of four that loves to travel, especially when it involves skiing and snowboarding. As professors and authors, we have enjoyed using our cabins as a peaceful place to write without distractions. And as avid world travelers, we've filled the cabins with treasures we've brought back from our many journeys.

Barbara purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Barbara chose Wrightwood

Why the Owner Chose Wrightwood: We chose to buy a cabin in Wrightwood in part for the convenience to Mountain High for skiing and snowboarding, but especially to enjoy this quaint little mountain town and the beautiful natural environment that surrounds it. Cool summers and snowy winters - a perfect mountain getaway from L.A.! After using our cabin we fell so in love with Wrightwood that we moved here full time, which means our cabin is now available year-round for others to enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Staying in one of our Wrightwood cabins offers a chance to relax and enjoy quality family time when we're not on the slopes.We spend our time reading, playing board games, going for walks and hikes, and enjoying the sauna.

Quaint and Absolutely Adorable

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend with the family! Loved the cute wood stove, concrete counters with wood branch supports, exposed brick and so many other things about the decor that made this little hideaway so unique and fun!

Fantastic cozy spot!

  • 5 of 5

My house was being fumigated, so I took the opportunity to spend some time in Wrightwood. This spot was my first choice because I wanted to bring my dog with, which the owners graciously agreed to. It's not a spot that would fit a lot of people, but for a single person or a couple it's the perfect getaway spot. The area was quiet, and the cabin is cute, cozy, and clean. It was a fantastic place to come back to after a long day of hiking. The cable and wifi was a nice touch too. I would definitely recommend and visit again!!!

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Very cozy, well maintained, nicely furnished and decorated. And the bed was comfortable, too. This was a surprising find in my local mountains. I would recommend this place and stay here again.

Cozy get away

  • 4 of 5

It was a great place to stay. We were crowded as we were a small family of four. I would definitely come here if it was a cozy get away of two. Very clean, shower was great. We were expecting a kitchen, but it was more like a kitchenette. We probably didn't read the details. The kitchenette was well stocked with everything though, we just had to make due using a portable counter stove they supplied.

Close to the Pacific Crest Trail and lots of other gorgeous hikes, mountain bike trails, hunting grounds, fishing lakes, etc. Just a little over an hour from Los Angeles with no windy roads -- but plenty of gorgeous mountain scenery, towering trees, and fresh air!

RULES ON INSTANT BOOKINGS: if booking less than 24hrs before check-in, we may not be able to accommodate the request due to housekeeping schedule or previously requested early/late check in/out of other guests. Additionally since we list on multiple websites that can have a slight delay in updating calendars, it is possible for instant bookings to be double booked. Your instant booking may be cancelled in these situations but we will do our best to cancel as soon as possible so you can look for another property.

1) PAYMENT INSTALLMENTS may be available upon request. If you are making an advance booking, we would be happy to set up payments rather than require all of it at booking.
3) CANCELLATIONS must be done 30 days in advance to qualify for a refund, minus $25 processing fee. CHANGES to reservation dates typically also incur a $25 processing fee unless adding nights. If you think there is a possibility you may have to cancel less than 30 days before arrival, we strongly recommend you pay for the HomeAway vacation cancellation insurance. Details will be given to you by HomeAway when you book.
4) BOOKINGS NOT PAID 2wks before arrival cancelled without refund.
5) DEPOSIT refunds are processed within a week of checkout.
6) PET FEE is $30 for weekend stays. If staying more than a few days, a higher fee will be assessed. Additionally, if any pet mess is left in the yard, a cleaning fee will be assessed.
7) CLEANING & LINENS FEE: if you're looking to save money, it is possible to avoid this fee by not having it cleaned before you arrive and by bringing your own sheets, towels, TP, paper towels, and dish towels. Inquire for details.

  • 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
