We have used the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center for many years as a yearly retreat. We usually have about 80 or so people attending the retreat. We usually reserve one of the conference rooms and prefer the room that is in the main lodge and above the dining room. Usually we have 2-3 people in each condlet with 1 person in the loft above. There are single Cedar Lodge Rooms which are smaller. The condlets are cozy, with some having fireplaces. Bathrooms are clean and the beds reasonably comfortable. This past year some people requested the Briar Creek Chalet which is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom place. Very nice though a little farther walk to the dining area. It has a full kitchen, an outside deck and plenty of common space for gatherings.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be provided at a cost with breakfast buffet style and lunch/dinner sit down style. Breakfast is very hearty with both cold and hot options. I like the breakfast :)
Lunch can be anything from burgers to sandwiches. Dinner is different every night and surprisingly good. We always bring our own bottles of wine which they keep in the kitchen to store free of charge. Service is friendly, quick and good.
Activities are available including tennis courts, basketball courts, a large grassy field for sports, a hot tub and pool, and horseshoes. For an extra charge, there is also hiking, bike riding and some other activities that I cant remember.
Overall, if you are looking for a conference center that is fairly close to Los Angeles, I would recommend UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center!
