“Burnt Mill Dream Vacation”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage is really rustic looking, both inside and out – it even has a bathroom sink made out of a granite boulder. I loved the décor throughout the Cottage which has an old Lake Arrowhead/old west theme. The Cottage is very spacious with a large open concept living room/dining room/kitchen, unlike the Arrowhead hotels I have stayed at, where you are crammed into one small room. The granite fireplace is really old fashioned and gorgeous.
The kitchen is first class with everything you need to cook up a great meal, and serve it in style. The owners have thought of just about everything – and all the drawers are labeled, making it easy to put everything away. Access to Lake Arrowhead Village and Sky Forest shops and restaurants is really quick and easy. I highly recommend the lodge to anyone who wants first class accommodations!

Scott,
We are glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness and decor of the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage. Both the carved sink and the split granite fire place that you mentioned were made by expert stone masons. Thanks so much for visiting the cottage - we hope you can come back soon!

“Perfection in the woods”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Burnt Mill Cottage was divine. Paul and Janice have thought of everything and left no detail untouched. When you walk up, you see the gorgeous cottage and then you start to see the little details- the wooden sculptures, the acorn door knocker, the comfortable chaise lounges... Everything was taken care of for us.

The cabin itself is beautifully decorated, clean and uber organized. Paul and Janice have taken great care to make sure you do not have spend time looking for things or fumbling through getting something working. There are directions and labels to guide your way, making everything worry free!

A little bit about the spaces-- the kitchen is gorgeous and well stocked-- they even had spices for cooking! We loved eating our meals outside on the little patio. The living room is super cozy. You can snuggle up with a book by the fire or enjoy a movie on Netflix. The bedroom was huge and there was a nice patio outside that we enjoyed sitting with a cup of coffee and enjoy the morning. The photos do not begin to show how nice this cabin is.

We loved our time there and cannot wait to come back.

Jenny,
It was fantastic to have you and your husband spend time at the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage! Thanks for the great review - we have tried to "leave no detail untouched" at the cottage. I am an accountant and my wife a former teacher, so between the two of us we tend to be super organized - glad that you found it helpful!

“Idyllic upscale cabin in the woods”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I have never seen a cabin in such a beautiful, tranquil, and verdant setting. The towering incense cedars, white firs and sugar pines, combined with the beautiful dogwoods and rhodoendrons create an idyllic setting for a mountain getaway. We loved sitting on the patio, soaking in the beauty this heavily wooded mountain retreat. The interior of the cabin is incredible. The owners have given great attention to detail to this immaculately restored historic cabin. It has wonderful amenities and is a great place for rest and relaxation. Looking forward to the next visit!!!

“Best cottage around”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Luxurious, sophisticated and rustic, it is a great place for couples. A really nice 1920's exterior woodwork and all modern amenities inside with an amazing remodel and interior design in every room. Right by Lake Arrowhead and not too far from Big Bear so you'll have plenty to do. If there was six stars i'd give it six.

“Serene Escape”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a lushly located gem of a cottage! With its combination of luxury, coziness, and comfort, Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage provided a sweet, serene escape from city life. The hosts may have been unseen but their spirit of warm and generous hospitality was experienced in every square foot of living space! Welcomed by a note from them along with starter snacks and condiments, we felt we had just checked into a 5-star hotel. When contact with Paul and Janice during our stay was required, both were readily available and immediately helpful. An informative photo history of the lodge as well as a detailed notebook with local information was provided for reference, guiding travel beyond the front door and footbridge to nearby Lake Arrowhead. One cannot help but appreciate the meticulous attention to detail and the rustic décor throughout the cottage. Every getaway need was provided for...and then some! There are many lounging locations on the property that, in our opinion, were perfectly posed for the purpose of quiet conversation, reading, rest and reflection. Whether it was on the upstairs balcony overlooking the tree-lined canyon, the master bedroom corner seating area, the blooming rhododendron-rimmed patio, the dogwood shaded front porch or the rustic fireside living room (with very comfortable leather furniture), each area served as an invitation to come away for a while and be still. Background music provided by Pandora echoed throughout the house with speakers upstairs and down and capped off the soothing ambience. The fully equipped kitchen made meal prep a breeze and meals were easily served up in the adjacent dining area where a well-framed view of the natural beauty surrounding the property was provided for by a large strategically placed bay window. There the gentle canyon breeze floated effortlessly through the delicate leaves of the dogwood trees, the chipmunks and squirrels were easily seen scampering about, and several varieties of birds provided aerial entertainment in the distance. We highly recommend Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage to all who are long overdue for a purposeful break from a frenzied routine and in need of reorienting soul and self to those things most meaningful in life.

“Perfect Cabin for Two”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We decided to get away to "celebrate" my birthday in solitude and the Burnt Mill Cabin didn't disappoint. Everything was perfect, inside and out. You can see the love and attention to detail in every room. We enjoyed it so much that we cancelled our dinner reservation on my birthday and stayed in so we could continue lounging, reading and listening to the great tunes on Pandora. The only things missing was the snow, but we can't control the weather. Janice & Paul made it so welcoming - even setting out snacks - I felt like I was checking into a B&B. And speaking of B, the bed was heavenly. I loved the mattress! We will definitely come back for another "just the two of us" getaway. The only thing I would suggest is providing another blanket throw downstairs, because we were cozied up in the recliners and each of us wanted a blanket.
