As you drive through the gates of Cedar Ridge, past the Swiss Chalets you look up at the top of the long drive way is the ivy adorned estate of the Von Trapp family.

This 6000 sq. ft. mansion has four full-sized bedrooms each with a California King and their own private bathroom! (1 located on the 1st level) You can easily park up to 7 cars, 3 in the covered garage.

The kitchen is fully equipped to make a holiday meal with two ovens, gas stove top, and a full sized wine fridge.

The space

Each property in this gated community is on at least an acre of land. It is ideal for long walks through the beautiful area. During the summer enjoy the outdoor patios and hikes to Lake Arrowhead, during the winter - no need to go to the slopes sled and snowboard in the back yard.

Guest access

You will have access to all 6000 sq. ft. with a huge Chef's Kitchen, large formal dining room and a large breakfast room. The Great Room is perfect for a large gathering to watch movies or sports and is complete with a massage chair. The formal living room is perfect for a get away from the kids.

No breaking things. Please do not consume the wine in the wine cooler, we will provide some bottles (of various spirits) that will be available in the refrigerator (we own a restaurant and have some nice spirits donated by various vendors). No smoking in the house (my husband has very bad asthma). We will allow well trained dogs (sorry no cats) but there will be an additional security deposit. Homeowners' Association is very strict about quiet time being from 10pm to 7am and will issue a fine, if there are complaints. We have a close relationship with our neighbors and we ask that all guests respect them. If a fine is issued, this will be deducted from security deposit.

Our group enjoyed the spaciousness of this home. There was plenty of room for all of us (10) and the home is well-equipped. The only downside is that Lake Arrowhead is a private lake and it is difficult to access.

Fantastic house, tons of room and very comfortable, balconies throughout with great views. Kitchen space is open, room to play in the back; short drive to the village and lake plus convenience store 2 minutes away. Hosts were most accommodating and helpful in getting us acclimated. Overall a great experience, highly recommend!

This house is a great deal! There's big, clean, and spacious rooms, big kitchen, entire house was very clean, it's close to local shops and restaurants, it's also a serene and quiet community. There's an old Street Fighter II arcade machine in the garage which was awesome! There's board games, a NES console, xbox, and playstation with games to use. There's trails close by, Lake Arrowhead is close by, 4-diamond rated spa is close by as well (less than 10 mins). However, I would recommend booking this house for sometime other than summer because there is no AC and the house was pretty hot during the day and night, even with fans.
