The location of the Saddleback Inn is wonderful on the main road into Lake Arrowhead Village, easy walk or drive to village.It is an historic site being over 100 years old. The choice of rooms are either in the main building or separate cabins winding up the hill from the main building. There is a super restaurant, Diane's, along with... More

We chose this Hotel by chance and were very happy with the outcome. The hotel is less than a block from Lake Arrowhead Village. The hotel and surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. The staff was eager to help and very efficient. Our room was a small cottage. At first it seemed a bit too small but it was clean... More

Love this place. It was build in 1917 and renovated--probably in the 90s. The stairs are steep and I saw no elevator. The staff is lovely, so friendly and helpful. When we arrived, our granddaughter was a little car sick so the kind woman at the desk immediately got her some soda and directed her to stand on the AC... More

The staff was friendly and nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The Inn is close to the village and the lake. It was quiet and relaxing and it was nice to be able to sit outside the room on a nice patio and feel the breeze.

I brought my 17 year old to Arrowhead for a short hiking and exploring summer adventure. After looking exhaustively for a cabin I settled on The Saddleback inn. I'm so thrilled I did! Perfect location to visit the lake and village, central to unlimited hiking. Our cabin was clean, charming and roomy.The staff in the office unparalleled. I loved everything... More

We have been to this location twice each time the room was wonderful. It is located across the street from Lake Arrowhead Village that has shopping, restaurants, boating, fishing, free summer concerts. The property has breakfast included and a great restaurant and bar with karaoke two times a week. It is a mountain lake resort great for the whole family.

Last moment stay at this little gem that is walking distance to "the village". We booked on Expedia for just a $100 for the night-- that included breakfast. It is slightly rough around the edges, but has all that you need to enjoy Lake Arrowhead-- you can even walk to the village! Most of the rooms come in the shape... More

The food at Saddleback Inn is superb! The ambiance is old fashioned elegance. However, it feels like management might be a little confused on whether the Saddleback Inn is high-end and elegant, or casual and off-the-cuff. We arrived for dinner and had to wait several minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Finally one of the female servers loudly stated from across... More
