“Nice stay, but just adequate”
Reviewed August 9, 2010

Compared to the other reviewers, I guess I'm harder to please. Our room was just adequate. The decor is kitschy and old. Granted, we did not have a room with a view., so perhaps those rooms are more special. We just needed a room for sleeping after an event in town. I was most disenchanted with the bathroom, which was very small with inadequate counter space. On the plus side, the location is the best.

My husband and I went to Lake Arrowhead to celebrate our 35th anniversary, hoping to stay in something more charming and intimate than your basic hotel, and this place was exactly what we were looking for. Chris and Megan were wonderful hosts who made us feel completely at home. Our room ( the "Romantique" room) was beautifully appointed, as was the whole downstairs area. Coffee and soft drinks were available all day long, as was fresh fruit, carrots and celery, yogurt and other goodies. The cinnamon rolls at breakfast were huge, gooey and absolutely delicious! Complimentary DVDs and board games were also available for guests to use during their stays. We highly recommend the Romantique Lakeview Lodge to anybody who's looking for a special place.

We stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary. The friendly owner greeted us with a short tour, and everything was included in the price: free DVDs, continental breakfast with wonderfully large cinnamon rolls, snacks in the fridge. Room was charming and unbelievably clean. The night got cold, but in-room heater/fireplace did the job. Romantique is across the street from shops and dining--everything within walking distance. Would highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone looking for a nice, friendly, clean and comfortable getaway.

I have traveled to Lake Arrowhead for 15 years on business and just discovered this gem. The location is ideal, the rates are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. What more could you want? I will stay here from now on rather than the resort across the way.

The Lakeview Lodge is really a bed & breakfast, not a hotel. It is charming and warmly decorated. The owners are very friendly and helpful. (We've been vacationing in Lake Arrowhead for years. One Thanksgiving, we got caught in an unexpected snowstorm. The husband of one of the owners came over with his 4 x 4 to help us get our car onto the main road - I've never had that kind of service at a Hilton.)

The location is great, too. It is directly across from Lake Arrowhead Village (very convenient), but, even better is the view. It looks out across the lake and the surrounding pine-covered mountains - just beautiful!

The stay includes a minimal breakfast (cereal, juice, coffee), so don't expect an elaborate breakfast. However, it makes up for it by offering some amazing (and huge) cinnamon rolls from a local bakery.

There are 7 rooms (I think); a couple are very small. The others are fine. The upstairs rooms in the main house are quite large (and have the best views). Each room is uniquely decorated. Overall, I would recommend the Lakeview Lodge to anyone.

A perfect get away with outstanding value. Located within a 2 minute walk to Lake Arrowhead Village, the room was clean and nicely decorated. There was a free continental breakfast with unlimited coffee in a dining alcove with a terrific view of the lake and forest beyond. They had an extensive DVD collection with in–room TV’s that have DVD capability. I had a totally relaxing experience in a warm and friendly mountain cabin. The owner was very conscientious about assuring a great stay . . . . and it was. Already making plans to stay again.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Lake Arrowhead and I chose the Romantiqe Lakeview Lodge for our stay. I wanted a small B&B close to the lake at a reasonable price. We stayed in the Rose Garden room.

The inn is indeed walking distance to Lake Arrowhead Village and to the lake, however, the inn is right on Highway 189 meaning you can hear traffic even from our room in the back and to walk to the Village you must walk next to the highway for a hundred yards or so.

They serve a continental type breakfast of juice, coffee, cinnamon rolls, fruit, and cereal. Not a huge selection, but enough to fill you up for the morning. The cinnamon rolls are awesome.

The bed in our room needed new mattresses. Neither my wife nor I slept very well either night. The mattresses sagged to the middle and were on the soft side. The room was small but perfectly acceptable for the rate and location. Parking was never a problem, though our visit did not occur during the high season.

The inn has a large selection of DVDs that you can borrow any time day or night and they offer a fridge full of sodas and juice that is included in the room price.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Before we arrived, I called up and asked for dinner suggestions and they made a dinner reservation for us at Casual Elegance which was excellent. They knew all about the goings on in the Village and suggested things to do. They have a membership at the Tavern Bay Beach Club and we borrowed the membership card and had a very nice picnic lunch next to the lake at the Beach Club. There really aren't any other places like this to hang out by the lake.

One request we had was that they would have the option to use towels a second time.
