“Most beautiful place I've ever seen!!”
Reviewed December 12, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This cottage is one of the most romantic place I've ever been in my life. My wife and I enjoy every second of it. The cottage has a rustic feel with the heels and whistles of a modern home. You can feel the hard work and time put into the cottage. We will be looking forward to staying there many times throughout the year. One of the best romantic getaways I've ever took part in.. Thanks Paul for such a beautiful cottage!!!

“Lovely cottage!”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My girlfriend and I booked the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage for the weekend for a quick getaway from LA. The cottage was absolutely lovely! Paul, the owner, provides very clear directions both to the cottage and instructions for the cottage. Everything inside was labeled and easy to find...there was even a welcome basket with coffees and goodies. Everything in the cabin was in tip top shape, very clean, and extremely well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and it was so nice to sit in front of the fire in the living room at night. We would definitely return and recommend.

I would recommend trying to arrive in the daylight, as it might be a little tougher to find in the dark. It's a bit of an awkward left turn onto the road where the cottage is and easy to miss (we only missed it twice!) It's not too far off the main road, but the dark and narrow roads make for a true getaway experience.

The town of Arrowhead is fairly small (but I guess that's all relative as we live in LA) and it was nice to get out of the busy city. Arrowhead Village was not what we expected- it's mainly outlet shops, which was fine to walk around and check out. It was about a 45 minute drive to head up the mountain to Big Bear, which we visited for the day. Big Bear is a bit larger town with more shopping and restaurants, but we were happy to be staying in Arrowhead which felt a little more remote.

“Perfect Romantic Mountain Getaway”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Burnt Hill Canyon Cottage exceeded our expectations on every level. My husband and I spent 4 days here the beginning of October and it was perfect for re-charging our batteries. Just a short 2 hour drive from LA we drove into the Canyon and easily found the cottage. It is exactly as pictured. Beautiful especially with the trees turning color. The inside décor reflects a cottage motif but not overly "kitschy" and really preserves the heritage of the building. It has charm with all the modern conveniences of home-great appliances including washer and dryer, Pandora, surround sound, Netflix, lovely fireplace etc. The bed was extremely comfortable! Everywhere there were really special touches that we really appreciated. In addition, it was immaculately clean!

There is a grocery store just a short drive away and Lake Arrowhead and Lake Gregory are very close. Lot's of great places to walk and hike. We enjoyed driving trough the local towns which were charming and got some beautiful pictures due to spectacular views. We cannot comment on restaurants because we just enjoyed cooking at the cottage and enjoying our surroundings. We arrived on Monday and left on Friday so we avoided all the crowds and traffic.

I also want to mention how terrific the service was. Paul allowed us to check in a little earlier. He was very responsive to our questions. He followed up with us via phone to see how we enjoyed our time and asked if there was anything that they could improve upon. Absolutely nothing! We are looking forward to coming back in the spring when the dogwoods etc are blooming.

Michele,
Wow, thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful and comprehensive review of your stay at the Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage! We are so pleased that the Cottage "exceeded your expectations on every level"! We would love to have you return in spring to see the dogwoods in bloom (the canyon we are in is filled with dogwood trees which have beautiful flowers in spring).

“Exquisite rustic cottage for two.”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is an absolutely gorgeous 1 bedroom home that we rented for two nights. It has obviously been recently remodeled throughout and the decor inside is amazing down to the smallest detail. Located just a few minutes from Arrowhead Village, it was the perfect spot for exploring the Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear areas. We very much enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it unconditionally. Only minor drawback is no cable (or over the air) TV, but they do have Netflix and wifi.

“A really wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay at Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage and cannot recommend it highly enough. The setting, décor and facilities are exceptional, everything you could possibly want is provided and easy to find. The cottage/cabin is absolutely lovely, extremely clean and very comfortable. It is clear that a lot of love and vision has gone into its refurbishment and a lot of thought has also gone into the experience that guests will have.

Prior to our trip Paul and Janice were really helpful and gave us the information we needed as first time visitors to area.

A couple of tips: although Lake Arrowhead is a private lake the Marriott Hotel allow non-residents to rent their kayaks (a guide accompanies them). Also if you are looking for a good restaurant and don’t mind a short drive, we thoroughly recommend the Stone Creek Bistro in Blue Jay.

Thanks Paul and Janice for doing everything possible to make our stay wonderful, if only we were closer we would be back like a shot!

“We highly recommend this experience!”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

When we first arrived, we were impressed with the setting and the atmosphere. The cottage being set back from the road in a wooded area with a walking bridge leading to the entry was very inviting. We were even more impressed when we entered the cottage and found that it was beautifully designed and furnished with incredible attention to detail.
The Lake and Adventure Passes, which were provided as a courtesy for the guests, allowed us to take leisurely walks around the Lake and at the Arboretum nearby. You can even walk into town from the cottage, just be prepared for the walk back up the inclined road on your return. After our walks, we looked forward to spending time out on the patio for lunch, getting in some reading, or just simply relaxing.
We highly recommend this experience. Great care is taken to keep everything well maintained and to make the guests feel comfortable. The time we spent there has to rank as one of our most enjoyable mini-vacations.
Thank you!!!
