Since the 1800s the San Bernardino Mountains have attracted people to its rich variety of natural resources. Today, this area is in the middle of the most "urbanized" mountain range west of the Mississippi River. A pleasant drive from anywhere in Southern California, this mountain location is the ideal California “stay-cation.” Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa is situated at an elevation of 5,106 feet in the San Bernardino National Forest along the shores of picturesque Lake Arrowhead, with plenty of fresh mountain air and a glistening clear-blue sky.
The 173 room Resort offers various amenities and activities, with an assortment of rooms and suites providing a breathtaking view of either the Lake or the sweeping grounds. Each guest room offers a relaxing haven among the already radiant natural settings. With over 20,000 square feet of indoor / outdoor flexible event spaces including the Lakeside Terrace and State of the Art Boardroom, the Resort is perfect for that destination wedding or a corporate brainstorm session.
More than just a place to rest, the Resort offers the ambience of a relaxing getaway partnered with the benefits that would be expected in a full service resort. Featuring a wealth of activity, guests can enjoy the full service spa “Spa of the Pines” with indoor or outdoor pool, sauna/steam room and whirlpool, the BIN 189 restaurant, a state of the art fitness center, gift shop and café, musical entertainment and seasonal outdoor activities, including boat and eco-systems tours.
The Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa has the best of both worlds for both the leisure and corporate traveler and is known for its sweeping tree-line and lake views. Within only 90 miles from most areas in Southern California, it is only a short trip to start an experience that will surely end as a treasured memory. With the Birchwood accented walls and oversized roaring granite fireplaces, this rustic but welcoming Resort is your prime California getaway destination.
