What to Do in Lake Arrowhead in November

Spend Thanksgiving in Lake Arrowhead.

Spend Thanksgiving in Lake Arrowhead.

November is one of the best times of the year to explore the mountains around Lake Arrowhead. The leaves have changed color and the temperature dips. In fact, it’s one of the few places in Southern California where fall is in the air. If you are planning to take a short fall vacation, here are a few ideas for having fun in the Swiss Alps of So Cal — Lake Arrowhead.

Getting Outside

Visit the San Bernardino National Forest to learn more about hiking in the local conditions. Temperatures in November are typically pleasant, making longer hikes manageable, providing less chance of sunburn and providing an opportunity to see wildlife in their natural habitats. If you plan to hike, make sure you prepare for both unseasonably cool and warm weather, as snowfall can occur in as early as November and as late as May. At nearly 700,000 acres, the forest feels majestically uncrowded in the quieter months of fall. So escape the crowds in the valley below and head up where the air is clear. Need a trail map to spark some ideas? Click this great Arrowhead Ranger District Trails map to find the right trail and campground to meet your needs.

While you are in the mountains, stop at the Strawberry Peak Lookout, a functioning wildfire tower that offers great views and picture-taking opportunities of the area. Built in 1934, the tower’s has volunteers on hand to provide visitors with tips about fire prevention as well as the history of fire throughout the region.

Wildhaven Ranch is a wildlife sanctuary and visitor center that features endangered and indigenous wild animals. Operated by the San Bernardino Mountains Wildlife Society, Wildhaven Ranch is open on Saturday. If you are interested in seeing eagles, bears, and other creatures, reservations are recommended.

Talking Turkey

Live in the hectic world of Los Angeles or San Diego? You may need of a trip out of town for Thanksgiving. Check out the Lake Arrowhead region for a relaxing mountain escape. Here are some tips for getting the most “gobble” out of your Thanksgiving vacation:

  • Make a long weekend trip. Look at the many offerings at Arrowhead Property Rental to find the perfect property to spend “turkey day” in the mountains.
  • Prepare for possible snow. Since Thanksgiving is at the end of the month, there is a chance you and your family will be able to enjoy a blanket of snow while you dine.
  • Lake Arrowhead boasts several great restaurants offering delicious Thanksgiving dinners. Or simply stock up at Stater Bros or Jensen’s for a turkey banquet with all of the trimmings.

November is a great time in Lake Arrowhead, where you can feel the chill of winter coming without the risk of massive snowstorms (though we sometimes enjoy those, too). Whether you’re looking to spend two nights of luxury with your entire family with a gourmet kitchen or would prefer to stay in a modest cabin for several days, weeks or months, at Arrowhead Property Rental in Lake Arrowhead, California, we offer lodging to fit all tastes and budgets – for individuals, couples, families and groups — all at great prices, with unbelievable amenities.

Picking that Lake Arrowhead Vacation Dream Home – Five Essential Tips

Get away from it all in Lake Arrowhead.

Get away from it all. Go to Lake Arrowhead.

You’ve picked your destination and decided on a fun trip to Lake Arrowhead. The next thing on your vacation “to do” list is to choose the perfect place to rent while you’re away, so you can relax and unwind.

Follow these five tips for finding a vacation home, and you will be perfectly positioned to find the ideal vacation rental property:

  1. Match your needs to the property. This sounds simple, but it’s an essential step for finding the perfect rental. All you need to do is match your wish list and budget to available properties.

  • For example, do you need a place that sleeps 10? Don’t stop at counting bedrooms. Check the number of beds in the property. Many owners wisely make the most of their rentals, with convertible features that may not be immediately apparent.

  • Are you planning on hiking during your stay? Search for properties that are located near trailheads.

  • Do you love the water? A lakefront house within walking distance to the Village is one option. This time of year a Lake View home will allow you to feast your eyes on the splendor of Lake Arrowhead.Nature - autumn landscape.

  1. Examine pictures carefully. Pictures can tell a thousand words, so look closely at pictures of the rental property. You’ve found a red flag if the listing description says “modern and bright” but the décor is from the 1970’s and you barely see any windows. Pictures can help gauge the overall condition of the rental and how much space you have to stretch out after a long day enjoying the sights.

  1. Confirm the internet connection. If you plan on enjoying a working vacation, don’t forget to check about the availability of Wi-Fi. In Lake Arrowhead, some homes are located in remote locations, without clear connections to cellphone towers. In such locations, streaming Netflix or playing online games won’t work. And this is a good thing, since the mountain offers plenty of activities that happen outdoors. You might actually enjoy spending time with family members who aren’t glued to their electronic devices. But rest assured that if you prefer (or need) to stay connected, you and your family will be able to do so without worrying. Lots of available properties feature LTE and flat screen TVs.

  1. Compute prices. As you check for available properties, be sure you match rates and dates. The same property may go for one rate during tourist season and another on the off-season. The total rates usually include tax, admin. fee and a refundable security deposit.

  1. Prepare to Relax. Before leaving for your trip, make sure you understand the way to pick up keys, enter and exit the property and rules for use. Answering these questions in advance will allow you to sit back and enjoy your Lake Arrowhead vacation.

Fotolia_53509762_XSAnytime of the year, vacationing in Lake Arrowhead is fun and affordable. But during the autumn, when the leaves are putting on a spectacular show, you can’t improve on the beauty of the San Bernardino Mountains.

April in Lake Arrowhead – All about Fishing

pier fishingWhether you are a seasoned fisherman (or woman) or are just starting out, the Lake Arrowhead area is the perfect place to set out with a rod, enjoy nature and reel in a great catch. April is the perfect month to focus on bass, which is a pretty penny in upscale restaurants. So, why not plan a vacation on the hill, where you can catch your own?

Lake Arrowhead

The perfect place to catch trout, Kokanee salmon, bass, catfish, crappie, sunfish and carp, Lake Arrowhead is private, which means its use is restricted to homeowners in a tract of land roughly one mile around the perimeter of the lake, known as “Arrowhead Woods.” Qualified homeowners are required to belong to the “Arrowhead Lake Association” in order to access the lake. If you are interested in purchasing property in Arrowhead Woods, give us a call at (909) 337-2403. But even if you’re not in the market to buy Lake Arrowhead property, you will be able to fish as long as you’re with a property owner. But even if you don’t plan to purchase property in Lake Arrowhead, you can vacation in the area, where there are lots of other great fishing options:

fishing 2Deep Creek and Bear Creek

After years of drought, Deep Creek and Bear Creek are up and running. Both streams feature the elusive native Brown Trout. And maps are available at the Discovery Center. If you decide to fish at either of these locations, you will need an Adventure Pass so you can park at the trail-heads nearest the stream.

Brown Trout can be fished using artificial lures (no bait) on barbless hooks. There is a limit of two catches per day of trout 8″ or larger. Anglers are encouraged to “catch and release” in these areas, to keep the waters well-stocked. The Department of Fish & Game studied Electro-Shocking in the stream and found the area to host browns in excess of 18 inches.

If you are an angler who would enjoy a great day of fishing without the often-associated hours-drive on either end, book a vacation place in Lake Arrowhead and spend a day or two at either of these streams!

Lake Gregory
Held annually, a free Youth Fishing Derby in Lake Gregory-adjacent Lake Arrowhead for kids aged 16 and under. What’s more, four times during the year, a big-tagged fish Fishing Derby is held, with a $2,000 top prize! Additional prizes are also awarded. The entry fee is just $10. And, historically, most of the tagged fish are caught during derbies. Snacks and supplies and a bait shop are located inside the park. And, although camping is not allowed at the 150-acre park, you could book a comfortable vacation spot in Lake Arrowhead and head over for the derby.

gone-fishinGeneral Restrictions

Anglers 16 and older must hold a valid fishing license, which can be purchased at local sporting goods, hardware stores and marinas. Reduced-fee licenses are available for the elderly and armed forces veterans, and free licenses are available for the visually, physically, and/or developmentally impaired, as well as for certain classes of American Indians. Generally, the catch limit is five in the lakes and two in the streams. Anglers in the wild streams are encouraged to “catch and release.” Some fishing also restricts the type of equipment you may use. A basic license is required and only one rod is permissible at a time. For more detailed information on hunting and fishing in California, visit the California Department of Fish and Game website, (phone (916) 227-2245, or check out the US Forest Service for more information.

Whether or not you decide to fish, vacationing in Lake Arrowhead is fun and affordable. Whether you’re looking to spend a single night of luxury with 20 of your closest friends with a gourmet kitchen or would prefer to stay in a modest cabin for several days, weeks or months, at Arrowhead Property Rental in Lake Arrowhead, California, we offer lodging to fit all tastes and budgets – for individuals, couples, families and groups — all at great prices, with unbelievable amenities.

Daffodils in Bloom

Springtime in the Lake Arrowhead communities means daffodils in Twin Peaks! Thousands and thousands of the beautiful little yellow flowers cover the hillside from Running Springs to Lake Gregory. Where did the bulbs come from? It all started in the fall of 1999 when a woman named Julie Greer planted a few bulbs. Since daffodils were her favorite flowers and she was battling breast cancer, she decided she needed a little sunshine in her life. In 2000, she raised enough money to plant 1,000 more bulbs. And though she lost her battle in 2001, her project lived on through her husband, Tom, who has continued her tradition, by planting thousands of additional daffodil bulbs. According to NBC Los Angeles, the total number of bulbs to date is some 80,000. To see the beautiful bulbs, all you need do is drive along Highway 189.
