The SpacePlease read the entire listing description, including the House Rules, prior to booking. Thanks!
Relax while you cozy up to a fire in the wood burning fireplace, or enjoy a fresh cup of coffee on the deck while watching the blue jays fly between tall pines and cedars surrounding the house.
Our 6 bedroom, 3 bath, well equipped cabin in Crestline, is walking distance from Lake Gregory, just 8 miles from Lake Arrowhead, 11 miles from Snow Valley Resort, and 30 miles to Big Bear Resort. Follow the steps down from the street to the front entrance of the house and enter into the mud room/laundry room with full size washer and dryer where you can store your gear from your outdoor adventures. From there, enter into the kitchen where you will find the essentials for making a home cooked meal when you don't feel like eating out. A breakfast bar with stools is available to enjoy a quick breakfast and some coffee from the Keurig brewing system, while hanging out with friends and family in the living room. Feel free to make complimentary pancakes or waffles for breakfast (but please limit yourself to one box of mix in the fridge per stay. If you use more, please replace any extra opened boxes). The living room features a flat screen TV equipped with Roku that can be used to sign into your various video watching applications (such as netflix, hulu, vudu, amazon prime, etc. Just don't forget to sign out before you leave!). You can also watch various available DVDs on the up-converting DVD player, or bring your own favorites while you sit around the wood burning fireplace. Enjoy dinner at the dinner table with space to seat six. The table can be extended to accommodate additional people by adding in the leaf. From the common area, you can also step outside through the dutch door onto the deck, or just open the top of the door to let in the mountain fresh air. There is a small electric stand up grill that can be brought out to the deck for some quick grilling (about six hamburgers).
On the lower level you will find the master bedroom with a king bed attached to a full size bath, and a bedroom equipped with a trundle bed. The master bedroom has direct access to the back wooded area if you feel the need to step outside for some fresh air. On the main level is a bedroom with a full bed located right next to a full bathroom. The upper level has a spacious queen bedroom overlooking the towering pines and cedars and two smaller twin bedrooms that all share a full bathroom. There are also two queen size air mattresses in the upstairs queen bedroom closet. If you use them, please deflate them and return them to the closet before you leave.
We do NOT have air conditioning. It can get warm up here in the summer, but the house is well shaded and built into the hill, typically keeping it cooler. We have a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. We also have a couple of standing fans in the closet of the main level bedroom.
The cabin has wireless internet, lots of DVDs (G through R rated), a few puzzles, games, cards, and books. Our remote controlled heating system will ensure that even if you choose a winter weekend getaway, the cabin will be warm and toasty upon your arrival.
We have a security system that will be turned off during your stay, so you won't need to worry about that feature. There is an access panel located by the front door in the mud room that can be used in an EMERGENCY SITUATION ONLY to contact help. Please DO NOT touch the alarm keypad unless it is an emergency. Just to let you know, there is a motion activated security camera directed towards the door. Don't forget to smile!
If you are coming with kids, please note that the stairs are pretty steep. There is a door leading to the lower level stairs and a baby gate at the bottom of the upper level stairs. Please always supervise children on the deck and the steps at the front entry. If you have dogs, we don't have a fenced in yard. Also, coyotes are in the area, even during the day. Do not let your dogs outside off leash. Guest AccessParking: We have a compact spot located at the top of the stairs to the front door. There are two additional parking spots directly across the street. Do not park on any of the neighboring parking decks. They are privately owned by our neighbors.
Once your stay has been confirmed, we will email or text you your personal entry code to the front door that will be valid during your stay. The alarm system will be turned off during your stay. Interaction with GuestsBecause we have a key pad entry, you don't have to worry about meeting with us at a specified time. Just show up any time after our agreed upon check in time. We are always available by phone (text, iMessage, Facetime audio) so please let us know if there are any issues or if you have any questions. Unless you need us, we will let you be to enjoy your mountain stay! The NeighborhoodOur neighbors are very nice and quiet. Mountain folks are most often friendly and willing to give a hand or directions when needed! Please be courteous of the neighbors and keep the noise down. After 10 pm please be quiet. Getting AroundGuests can visit the public Lake Gregory for swimming and sunning or year round fishing, access the many hiking trails in the area , visit Lake Arrowhead Village for excellent shopping, summer concerts and farmer's market (fridays), less than 20 minutes away, or quickly access the local ski resorts!
Be prepared in the winter that if there is snow on the ground they often require 4WD OR chains, sometimes both. Our cabin is on a county maintained road so it will get plowed, but it can sometimes take 12-24 hours. You may have to dig out a spot. If you are sticking out into the road they will ticket you and you want to be sure your car doesn't get skidded into by another car. Other Things to NoteWe stock toilet paper and paper towels sufficient for a weekend stay. If you are staying longer or have a larger group, you will need to bring or buy some.
Please note that cellular service can be spotty. Try using a VOIP or FaceTime audio to make calls.
Please enjoy some complimentary coffee, tea or hot cocoa during your stay, just please be courteous to the next guest. Anything you want to add to these drinks, please be sure to bring them with you.
Most reservations will require a two night minimum stay, however most holidays, like Christmas and New Year's requires a three night minimum stay. Thanks for your understanding in advance! Weekly rate does not apply to weeks that include holidays. Contact us for holiday weekly special rates.
