Our family stayed at Swiss Chalet last week, we had a great time everything is good. Booking was so easy, Grant is very helpful. Will definitely come back.
Absolutely love our mini get-away at Swiss Chalet! We first booked our stay last year and loved it so much that we returned this year. Last year we booked both Swiss Chalet and Creekside lodge, they are located next to each other, which is great since we had a larger group. This year I only booked Swiss Chalet, and I can't even describe how much my kids loved the rental! They love the bunk room! The ping pong table is a big hit, and it converts to a pool table! There are board games, wifi (for those of us who must still use the internet, even thought we're "away") , everything you may need is available. This is definitely a yearly tradition for us now. I've had other friends also book for next month. Grant is very helpful and replies promptly to any questions you may have. Booking is fast and effortless. Definitely recommend it!

Our Thanksgiving getaway was just perfect. The house was the last house on the street which made it just right for our kids to play out in the back of the house. Really kid/teen friendly house. The patio was nice and cozy to have your morning coffee and breakfast. The owner Grant was really nice and welcoming. Looking forward for our next getaway.
This is my 2nd stay through Grant (the owner of Arrowhead Retreats) and it was definitely a pleasure. We had a large group going -- Grant was very accommodating, responsive, and helpful in helping us pick out the best locations for our needs. We got pretty much everything worked out over email, which is nice because I could plan a trip for a large group without committing a lot of time to phone calls and unnecessary logistical issues that other property managers tend to cause.
The stays both times were extremely hassle free - keyless entry, very clean and well maintained properties, and always lots to do on and off the property including backyard games/activities and indoor entertainment (speakers, TV, table games, etc.). Your group will not get bored, in fact during both stays, many people in my group chose to spend most of their day relaxing at the house. The house also includes a guide to local hikes, one of which we very much enjoyed (Deep Creek), and a pass to the lake.
In particular with the Creekside Lodge, my group played some bocce ball in the backyard and also played pool indoors. We really liked how spacious the house was and how it was central to the Arrowhead shops / hiking but also the highway to Big Bear.
The Lake Arrowhead area is a nice, peaceful escape from the chaos of LA County. I loved staying at this house and breathing it all in before retreating back into the smog below...
Highly recommend Grand & Judy Dunning + Arrowhead Retreats! (And no, I was not incentivized to leave this review, I really did have a great experience and offered to write it)
