About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin apartment with modern bath and kitchen

The cabin apartment comes with Internet access, a small tv with Roku box, a modern kitchen and bathroom, multiple parking spaces and has a private entrance. It's nestled in a nice quiet neighborhood with glimpses of the lake. Though modernized, it still retains a rustic cabin feel. It's in walking distance to the famous Tudor House with live entertainment and food. Enjoy beautiful walks surrounded by trees, drive to the village, lake and favorite local shopping and restaurants. All just 5 minutes away by car. Stop by on your way up or down the mountain on a visit to Big Bear. We are approximately 1 mile from HWY 18.

The kitchen has a toaster, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator and electric stove. There are dishes, pans, cooking utensils, cutting boards and so forth. No oven. The bed is a full sized bed. There is a fold out couch so if you have kids, send me an email. I know it's hard to afford to travel with kids, I have one. I know most of the neighbors now, they are all very nice. There is a patio with table and chairs.

I will send entry information the eve before your arrival.

The cabin apt has a separate entry. We may pass each other on the driveway. Say hi if you like. I'll do my best to respect your privacy but if you want to chat I'll do that as well. If you need anything while you are there just let me know. I'm happy to help out in any way possible.

Super wide cars or trucks might be an issue as there is no street parking and driveway entrance is a bit narrow. So far we have not had any issues with this.

Keep the weather in mind! In the winter, when it rains it sometimes snows. Snow can happen Oct-May, check your weather apps. Bring chains for your tires and bring a shovel for your car. Check Caltrans for road conditions and make sure you are prepared. If you are concerned about traveling in the snow, plan your trip at a different time of year. During your stay I can direct you to a broom, snow shovel and a few other odds and ends if you need them.

Some questions I've been asked:

I don't know anything about local fishing so please do your research. Same goes with boats.

There are multiple lakes in the area. Some may have restrictions while others may not.

Available dates, please check the calendar for available dates. I try to keep this current. If it's open and you want to book it, request a booking.

Please notify me if you need access to the fold out couch. I will provide you with info on where to locate extra sheets and blankets. Also please note that the fold out is a bit older and would be better for kids than adults. We've had some adults sleep on it and they were fine.

Absolutely no smoking of any kind anywhere on the property. We are in fire country. Please respect this rule.

Snow, hail, power outages and road closures do happen on occasion in all mountain areas. Power poles, trees and other sometimes go down. The county works real hard to get everything up and running and sometimes in very harsh conditions. Make it an adventure, pull out the lantern, play games, have fun, it will be a great story some day! It's not often but we just wanted to let you know. We understand this is inconvenient when it happens. I will do whatever I can to make your stay more pleasant during these situations and keep you posted with updated info as I know it. Like most mountain rentals, we do not do refunds for conditions that are out of our control.

Please note: We do not accept checks or cashiers checks. We do not share our mailing address. I get asked this regularly thus the need to post it here. HomeAway/VRBO assures us that payment through their site via credit card is secure.

About Diana Mitchell

We enjoy gardening, working with trees, playing board games, being out in nature, going on nice walks, spending time with our critters. I'm as environmentally friendly as I can be. I enjoy historical fiction, old architectural buildings and checking out new and old cities.

Why Diana Mitchell chose Arrowhead Villas

I'm the new home owner and I just fell in love with this house. I love fixing things and I have loved all the projects I've been working on so far. I will be slowly working on fixing up the main house and exterior over the next year or so. I want to keep the old classic charm and cool cabin feel. It'll be a rewarding project. I enjoyed setting up the apartment for potential renters. It's in great shape, it has a nice modern kitchen and bathroom with a cabin feel. I tried to decorate accordingly. I hope I did a good job and that you enjoy it.

What makes this cabin unique

I love that the house is old and has a cabin feel to it. It's nicely located, close to the village and other areas we enjoy frequenting. I like that the property is flat, the driveway is long and makes parking easy to deal with on an otherwise difficult to park in area. The trees give a nice calm peace of mind feel for an otherwise busy life. It's a nice place for a quick get away.

Diana is an amazing host. Very kind, responsive, and respectful. A Great place to get away for a whi

  • 4 of 5

Diana owns a two story home, in which she rents out the first floor to those who want to spend a couple nights up in Lake Arrowhead. It's located fairly close to the lake, the village, and other places one would want to see! The room was a little smaller than expected, no oven to bake, and ran into a couple spiders.. but with a stove and spending most of my days hiking and exploring, wasn't an issue for us. I think if you want a fairly priced get away with friends or family. This is a nice place to go! I will definitely consider coming here again. Thank you Diana

Owner's Response: Hi Andre and thank you for the review! It was a pleasure having you both. I did my best with the photos to try to give an accurate idea of the size of the place. Sorry if the room was smaller than you thought it would be. I do believe I have it noted in the detail that there is no oven. Always make sure to read the detail when renting a place so you know what you are getting. There is definitely a stove and I’m glad you put it to good use! In the woods it’s a bit harder to keep the wild life where you want it. I tell the spiders to stay out but once in a while a couple sneak in. ;-) I hope you kicked those freeloaders out. Thanks again for staying with us!!! Please excuse my bad sense of humor. :-)

Wonderful Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 17 month old son had a wonderful weekend up in the mountains at Diana's cabin. Everything was clean and exactly what we needed. Diana was incredibly responsive and made our stay so easy. We will absolutely recommend this home to any couples planning a trip to Lake Arrowhead.

Charming and romantic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Diana's cabin apartment. She was very accommodating to our needs. Communication was excellent. The cabin apartment is exactly as stated. It's super cute, quiet, charming and just all around the perfect get away. We could not have enjoyed our stay more.
