Craving a romantic getaway with stunning mountain views and a beautiful lake? Then I’ve got just the place for you! Only a quick 90 minute drive from Los Angeles, Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa is a luxury oasis nestled within the San Bernardino National Forest that allows you to truly reconnect with mother nature and yourself.
Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa.
You have everything you could possibly need right on property at Lake Arrowhead and Spa. A focal point of the retreat is the large heated pool with two hot tubs overlooking the lake. Or you can choose to head down to the spacious lakeside beach after some fun in the game room area including ping pong and foosball tables. The lodge style rooms are rustic and give you that mountain life feel. Bin 189 and Bar is the place to be for dinner. The menu is delectable, the service is impeccable and you can choose to dine inside or outside. I also suggest starting your day enjoying breakfast outside with incredibly scenic views and then later cozying up by the large indoor fireplace for a tasty nightcap.
Spa of the Pines
You must make time for the spa during your stay! The spa is pure luxury and the perfect place to unwind and recharge. I enjoyed a 50 minute massage and my massage therapist was fantastic! You can even choose massage enhancements like cupping, oil scalp massage, LED light therapy and more. There is also a boutique fitness studio and group fitness classes like mat pilates, yoga and even sound healing.
Things To Do
Lake Arrowhead Village
You are within walking distance of Lake Arrowhead Village with tons of cute shops and restaurants. I love eating local and we enjoyed a delicious meal with creative cocktails at Jetties Waterfront Kitchen + Drink. This is the type of place you can linger at for hours whether you are solo, on a date or with your family. Talk about views and vibes!
Lake Arrowhead Queen
The best way to experience Lake Arrowhead history is on the Lake Arrowhead Queen. The hour long tour is so much fun and full of information. Being the pop culture aficionado that I am, I loved hearing our guide and captain’s fun stories about the celebrity homes. You simply can’t beat getting out on the water with the breeze in your hair!
Lake Arrowhead Brewing Co.
Lake Arrowhead Brewing Co. is Lake Arrowhead’s first craft brewery! I’m a bit of a beer snob and I must say these beers are GOOD!! Just a quick walk from Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, the brewery is located lakeside in a converted warehouse. There is tons of space to set up shop, kick back and enjoy yourself. They do some exciting collabs and host different fun events throughout the year.
SkyPark at Santa’s Village
Want to celebrate Christmas year round?? Yes please! And did I mention there’s a world class bike park? Just a short drive from Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, you must put SkyPark at Santa’s Village on your to do list. Obviously it is super fun during the holidays, but this place is truly entertaining all the time whether you are a kid or adult. Here’s a video tour from a recent trip over the summer with my family:
There is SO much to do in Lake Arrowhead from boating to skiing depending on the time of year that this list could go on and on. But hands down THE place to stay is Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa. They are currently renovating the hotel as well and I can’t wait to visit again and enjoy the results! Be sure to put Lake Arrowhead on your bucket list.
