Under "YOUR HOST" near the bottom of this listing, CLICK ON OUR PICTURE TO SEE OUR OTHER EXQUISITE 5 STAR CABIN, the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage.
The quaint “Hershey Cabin”, originally owned as a hunting cabin by members of the Hershey (chocolate) family, is nestled on the lush side of the Lake Arrowhead, in historic Arrowhead Villas. It is situated about 1 mile south of Lake Arrowhead Village at an elevation of 5,500 feet. This is not just another rental house, but rather a very quiet, inviting, immaculate and comfortable mountain cabin.
THE CABIN MUST BE LEFT IN A NEAT AND CLEAN CONDITION UPON CHECKOUT. IF THIS IS NOT YOUR INTENT, THIS IS NOT THE CABIN FOR YOU! WE CHARGE $50 AN HOUR FOR EXTRA CLEANUP.
The Hershey Cabin is the perfect place for a romantic weekend get-away or for an extended vacation. Totally renovated a couple years ago, it has been tastefully decorated to make it the perfect retreat for a private getaway. Every piece of furniture and art has been hand selected by the owners who have a passion for incorporating comfort and elegance in home decor. It is furnished with both antiques and modern furnishings, blended together, to provide the creature comforts of modern day while maintaining the old fashioned warmth of a vintage Lake Arrowhead cabin.
During the renovation we basically went down to the studs and rebuilt much of the cabin from the ground up – yet we saved the original footprint and the rustic knotty pine and redwood inside, so that the cabin still has that old fashioned charm. The cabin has a beautifully hand crafted rock fireplace, massive pine mantel, porcelain/slate tile floors with traditional wool rugs, central forced air heating, dual pane windows and fully insulated walls and ceilings. Above the fireplace is a 40 inch high definition, smart flat screen TV (we have high speed internet/WiFi and Netflix and a DVD player), but no cable TV. The living room is a perfect place to snuggle up by the fire and read or watch a movie.
The bathroom is brand new - with lots of tile, granite and a frameless glass shower. The kitchen has been totally remodeled with gorgeous granite counter tops, new cupboards and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities of home. Throughout the cabin, we completely replaced all wiring, light fixtures, pipes, drains and even the water heater.
The bedroom has knotty pine walls and ceiling, and the view out the windows makes you feel as if you are nestled in a tree house. The bed has a new memory foam mattress along with beautiful cozy bedding. Outside the bedroom is a brand new wrap-around deck, with bistro tables and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a meal!
In front of the cabin we built a retaining wall to allow easy parking along with concrete steps and a wrought iron banister up to the front door. The cabin is situated on a very quiet road and is easy to find at night, as it has a lighted address. It is surrounded by beautiful firs, pines, maples and cedar trees, along with a nicely landscaped yard. The siding of the cabin is classic craftsman style shake.
Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Unlike many cabins, WE PROVIDE A PASS so you have access to hike the trails around the lake, use the two beach clubs, and fish from the shore or use the Arrowhead Lake Association fishing dock.
The Lake Arrowhead area is a little hidden gem, with a quaint village, dinner theater (Tudor House), movie theater, wonderful local restaurants and various shopping opportunities. If you are looking for a romantic get-away, or just a place to relax and have fun, this is just the place. Lake Arrowhead celebrates all four seasons - warm summer days, fall colors, snow in the winter, and a beautiful spring.

The NeighborhoodArrowhead Villas (the small historic area where our cabin is located) was originally founded by the infamous mobster “Bugsy Siegel”, of Las Vegas fame. Bugsy Siegel came up with the idea of opening his exclusive members-only resort in the late 1920’s, after realizing that Lake Arrowhead was quickly becoming the new playground for the Hollywood elite. The property, which cost whopping $1.3 million to construct, opened on July 4, 1929. At the time, the resort was comprised of three individual buildings consisting of a private gambling club, a brothel, a speakeasy, luxury guest quarters, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis courts, a barbershop, a private gas station, horse stables, and a highly-coveted supply of artesian well water – which was used in the making of moonshine.
The resort’s former Clubhouse, which housed the property’s private gambling club and speakeasy, is now known as “The Tudor House”. At the time that Bugsy managed the property there was a secret underground tunnel which connected the Clubhouse to the Bracken Fern Manor (similar “Tudor” style structure across the street), and was used to allow male guests to travel to the brothel undetected.
The Tudor House is now a wonderful dinner theater/ supper club/ concert hall etc. The Tudor House is located at 800 Arrowhead Villas Road, about a half mile from our cabin.
