Our home, The Dragon Cabin, once owned by Oscar/Emmy winning rich and famous is located in Lake Arrowhead which is a private lake in the stunning San Bernardino National Forest and is called the “Alps of Southern California” and is known as the best secret in Southern California!
Firstly built in 1960 by the famous Italian operatic soprano singer Amelita Galli-Curci, and soon after purchased by Oscar and Emmy-winning Carmen Dragon, conductor, composer, arranger and father of Daryl Dragon the Captain of “The Captain and Tennille”. The “Dragon Cabin” stayed in the Dragon family for thirty plus years!
At the Dragon Cabin where you will be surrounded by the beauty of the natural forest full of pines, cedar, dogwood and abundant wildlife. The two-story cabin is in a park like setting with 2 picnic tables, wrap around decking and with 5 seating areas viewing the forest and in the distance Mt. Baldy. Wow, the sunsets over Mt. Baldy are beautiful! Who knows you may even feel compelled to write a song or two during your stay while swinging in the hammock!
During your stay in the cabin, the lake is just a few minutes drive down the hill, or you can hike down the hill for the more adventurous. Weather permitting, you can walk around the lake at the Villlage and enjoy the views. Did I mention you have use to our 2 seated kayak during (weather permitting).
Family or friends that are not into the many wonderful year round outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, water sports, horseback riding, and skiing (did you know Snow Valley Ski resort is only 13 miles from the Dragon Cabin) may just want to relax in the peacefulness of the Dragon Cabin and not leave our private community called Crest Estates unless you like shopping! Yes, there is great shopping in Lake Arrowhead Village!
Lake Arrowhead Village is just a few minutes away from our home offering great shopping (even factory outlet shopping), dining, 40 summer concerts, a yearly Octoberfest, and a year round paddle sightseeing boat ride around the lake. All four seasons offer activities for all ages at the Lake Arrowhead Village.
The enormous dining room with forest views has the original knotty pine cathedral ceiling and oaks floors with seating up to 8 (10 if requested) and has a fireplace that works as an indoor BBQ (no firewood). Why BBQ in the cold when you can be cozy in doors in the cooler months? Just bring your own match light charcoal, mesquite, etc. Great memories can be made in this room next to the galley kitchen set up for making snacks to gourmet meals. We also have a 32 inch flat screen and blue ray player in the dining room for your enjoyment.
The 100% knotty pine living room with 17 foot cathedral ceiling with wrap around windows viewing the forest sunsets with a fireplaces that roars. The living room is set for reading and small chat and of course enjoying the crackling of the fire and viewing nothing but trees!
The family/media room has a large stone fireplace designed by Carmen Dragon and where he played and wrote his music (again, don't be surprised if lyrics just start flowing from within). This room is set up for fun, noise, music, TV, DVD Wii, poker, bumper pool, foos ball, dancing, etc!
There are two more bedrooms on the main floor, one with a queen rustic pine headboard, the other bedroom with a four-poster full trundle with a pull out twin if needed.
Both bathrooms have been remodeled for a clean and comfortable experience. The main floor bath has a new vanity and the floors are back to the original pine with the original walk-in shower.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Dragon Cabin. Every little detail was thought of! The cabin was perfectly cozy, clean and had everything you could possibly need! We cannot wait to come again. The only reason I wouldn't recommend it, is because I selfishly want to keep it a best kept secret!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Dragon Cabin. The cabin is quite charming and met all of our expectations. Even though the cabin is an older property, the owners have done a wonderful job in updating it without losing its original character. The bedrooms were all well appointed and the beds extremely comfortable. The downstairs bathroom is gorgeous! There were plenty of games, Dvds and activities for everyone to enjoy...the setting is extremely peaceful and beautiful.
There was ample dishes, silverware, glassware and pots and pans to make every kind of meal... We all agreed we would definitely rent this cabin again...

We spent several days at the Dragon Cabin with our adult kids and family friends and had a wonderful time. The owners have done a beautiful job restoring this property. They have preserved the charming vintage mountain cabin character while making the vacation home comfortable, very well furnished, and a great place to hang out. Lots of room for everyone with multiple outdoor seating areas and an outstanding game room! One of our best rental experiences!

Our family had such a great time at the Dragon Cabin, We loved how charming and warm the cabin felt. Early morning walks outdoors,shopping in the Village, and then back to the cabin for reading, relaxing and a few cocktails on the deck. The evenings are the best, the cool air and peaceful nights were perfect for our family dinning and playing card games at the dinner table. We will definitely be back, this cabin fit our family perfect. We can't wait for Christmas 2014:) Lots of Love to the Dragon Cabin, our new Home away from Home:)

I recently stayed at this cabin and it was such a delight! Fire places in almost every room, beautiful deck sounding the property and picnic tables outside to enjoy your meal on! There is also an indoor bbq that was built decades ago and has real charm. Let me not forget the dvd, upon dvd that is location in the media center.
I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and relatives!
