Past guests say:

“Very picturesque location in a quiet neighborhood. The whole place is even more charming in person than in the photos. Well cared for, clean, and very cozy. Enjoyed early morning coffee on the deck. It was our 3-year-old daughter’s first weekend away from home and she loved the little “nook” bed and exploring the property. Good selection of nice places to eat nearby and close to the lake. Beautiful time of year to visit with the Dogwoods in bloom. We regretted not staying an extra day; will keep that in mind next time we decide to venture up to Arrowhead. Excellent communication with the host… thank you Pam for a wonderful weekend!”

Visiting Channel Islands National Park: 21 Things to Know Before You Go

This Airbnb is strictly adults-only and no pets or no smoking, so it’s great for those who have allergies and want to ensure a comfortable stay.

It’s also exceedingly clean and immaculately kept, all high-touch surfaces — from light switches to door handles to counters — disinfected with Clorox between guests.

One of the best ways to enjoy some time with your significant other is taking a romantic mountain getaway to a cabin built for two.

Whether you start your day with a delicious coffee or a mimosa, enjoy the view of the morning sun through on the deck, also a fabulous sunset spot each night. There’s also a grill on the deck if you want to fire up a great grilled dinner, or there’s a spacious and modern kitchen you are welcome to use.

This charming spacious Airbnb for two is the perfect winter getaway — though admittedly, it would be lovely any time of year. However, if you come for winter, expect lots of festive details!

Built in 1922 but recently majorly renovated, the house now boasts modern amenities like porcelain tile floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and central heating.

Cozy up around the fireplace with its lovely knotty pine mantel. Don’t worry if you’re not handy with starting fires: it’s a gas fireplace, igniting with the press of a button!

Past guests say:

“This place was such a gem. Between the location and attention to detail you can not go wrong with this place. Very romantic and while we were there it snowed pretty hard making the whole place that much more magical. Paul was super helpful and even arranged to have the snow cleared out before we left (which was SUPER appreciated). We will definitely be back!”

“Feels like home! Would definitely recommend it! Paul did an excellent job with any questions we had and even helped us clear snow around our vehicle!”

Tiny House in Lake Arrowhead (Walk to the Village)

Nothing says romance like cozying up in a tiny house!

… Or if you’re thinking of downsizing to a tiny house but just want to test-drive it to make sure you won’t kill each other first, that’s also a legitimate reason to check out this adorable Airbnb Lake Arrowhead tiny house!

Still, while it is compact, it isn’t that tiny. There is a full bedroom, full bathroom (with tub!), and plenty of space in the living room, so don’t expect a teeny-tiny sleeping loft you have to squeeze yourself into like you may have seen on HGTV.

Built in the 1930s, this mountain cabin for two is a great small-space solution. You’re just steps from walking to the village, but you also have a lot of outdoor space to enjoy, such as a large deck surrounded by trees, as well as BBQ for cooking up meals.

Inside, you can cozy up on the couch to watch some movies on the projection screen, access the WiFi, or light a fire in the gas fireplace for some romantic vibes.

Past guests say:

“This place is so lovely!! It’s a small, vintage cabin with rustic touches and OH SO cozy. Having a gas fireplace is so much better than a wood-burning one, in my opinion. Kitchen has everything you’d ever need… Brent was the most responsive host I’ve ever encountered. Running an AirBnB in a location with inclement weather can pose challenges—and even though he can’t control those things, he STILL insists on making things right in every instance! We really enjoyed our stay… If you’re coming during the snowy season, I recommend NOT driving once you’ve parked. Bundle up and walk everywhere. It’s 10 minutes to the Village!! I’ll definitely want to stay again—during the snow or the summer!”

“This was a wonderful getaway in such a cozy and well-located spot. Any questions we had were answered readily, and we felt right at home. It was a pleasure being able to walk to the lake and local spots within minutes. I’ll be recommending this spot to all of my friends…even though I hope that it does not fill up too quickly because I’m hoping to come back again soon!”
