What We Love

  • The setting, situated within San Bernardino National Forest
  • The stargazing program led by an astronomer every Friday (spots are limited, so sign up early)

What To Know

  • A $20 resort fee per night will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout

  • The altitude is just over 5,000 feet, so stay hydrated regardless of the season — especially if you came from sea level.
  • Most rooms have lake or mountain views, but some look out over a pretty big parking lot.
  • There’s WiFi resortwide and it's rolled into the daily resort fee
  • The resort is more a rustic mountain getaway than a luxury resort
  • The pool will be closed from May 28th to June 21st, 2013 for renovations

Underwhelming stay!
Reviewed 6 days ago

This is my second time visiting Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa with my family. The first time (2 years ago) went exceptionally well. Our first stay was from a Wednesday to a Friday... From the cleanliness of the room to the hospitality of the staff (especially the housekeeping) we were undoubtedly impressed! No question we decided we were definitely coming back. This time around we were a bit disappointed that they weren't offering the s'mores experience down at the beach during our stay (Sunday thru Tuesday)... then we find out Monday morning the in house coffee shop that we loved on the last stay was only operating on weekends now. Nonetheless, we accepted the changes and kept the positive vibes we arrived with! On our last night stay (around 10:30 pm) while enjoying family time in our room, the power comes off! Now I know it was late, but we were planning to stay up pretty late on our last night and of course no AC in a warm stuffy room... power came back on about 3ish in the morning. So morning comes and the bill is slipped under the door and low and behold No Discount for the power outage. Even if it wasn't the resorts fault an apology and a small discount would've been greatly appreciated! 4 star resorts should not let guests leave disappointed.

One night stay at the resort

Our family went to the resort because my daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday. We reserved two rooms and they were very nice. We had requested them to have a view of the lake. The rooms were a nice size, king bed and balcony, it was very nice. We ate lunch at their restaurant at the resort called Bin 189. We sat outside which which a great view. The service was slow. The inside is also very nice, great views and nice docor. We then headed to the outside pool. The pool is mainly 3 1/2 fft deep so easy to walk around with kids. Its a nice size, plenty of chairs and there is shade if you need to stay oit of the sun. They also have a nice jacuzzi, I spent time with my Grandson in the spa. We then headed down the stairs to the small sandy beach which has chairs and kayaks to rent. It was so pretty because you see the lake and boats going by. You can only use the pool and go to this beach area if you are staying at the resort. It was a fun time, it too time to gets drinks in the evening because there was a resort at the resort. They do have events and weddings there. I will go back again, it was a nice place to say and a close walk to the village,took us about about 8 min.

Great Location, Amazing Lobby, Super Nice Staff, Comfortable Rooms

We stayed here twice during May, once just for an overnight and the second time for two nights. During the second stay, we took advantage of the spa treatments. The hotel is an autograph hotel, which means it has character and history. While the rooms are an older style (no large work area or multiple charging stations for all our devices, no microwave, and the closet has just a curtain in front--my husband thought it was another shower and wondered why there was no closet), the overall layout of the hotel and the amazing, grand lobby more than make up for the somewhat dated rooms. Our room overlooked the wedding venue area, and had a small balcony which would have been wonderful to sit out on had it been warmer outside. It also had a view of the lake. The hotel is pet-friendly and our room was right off the lobby which was super-convenient for taking our dogs out for a walk. The hotel is but a short walk from the village where there are places to eat and shop. Best part--we could order dinner and wine from the hotel restaurant and have it served to us in the lobby in front of the large fireplace so our two "girls" could be with us. And the food was very good. Staff was amazing. We plan to return for Thanksgiving (we heard about the amazing Thanksgiving Day buffet in the lobby, but don't tell anyone, okay?)

We only stay one night so my husband could do a spartan race. First I want to say that everyone who works here are the nicest people. I mean everyone from the front desk to the servers in the restaurant to house keeping. I was genuinely shocked at how nice everyone was. The hotel is right next to the village a short walk. The hotel backs right up to the lake. We had a room facing the lake very private. The view from our room was beautiful We had a nice little balcony. The room is a little dark and out dated. With that being said it does give a warm cabiny feel with being up in the mountains. The hotel is only 3 floors. They have a full SPA called Spa of the Pines. They have a decent gym to work out in .
