Lake Arrowhead

The view at Saddleback Inn in Lake Arrowhead is awe-inspiring.

Lake Arrowhead is the perfect place to escape the city and soak in the outdoors.  My first time to Lake Arrowhead was filled with relaxation, awe, and beauty.  My husband and I needed a quick getaway alone together and honestly we could of stayed much longer to explore the scenery and absorb nature’s beauty.  Lake Arrowhead California is a four-season resort destination.  The perfect place to unwind and pause purposefully from a frenzied city life.

Since, it was a goal for us to unplug and recharge choosing a hotel was a big decision.  We decided upon Lake Arrowhead’s beautiful Saddleback Inn.  It was the perfect choice for us.  The setting was absolutely magnificent due to the pine and cedar trees that surround the hotel.  There was a superb stillness in the air and the smell of the pine and cedar trees were both refreshing and exhilarating.

I love that our little cottage was named SUNSHINE!  Another love, my chic jacket from Forever 21.

Saddleback Inn has both hotel rooms in the main building and private cottages that have awesome amenities making you feel at home such as free WiFi, flat screen TVs, stone fireplace, whirlpool tub and mini fridges.  We loved our stay in our private cottage.  Each cottage has a large porch where you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset allowing you to absorb the rustic beauty of Lake Arrowhead.

Another bonus for us is their complimentary breakfast at their restaurant which was quite scrumptious! The sausage, eggs, melody of fruit, breads and cereals hit the spot after a night of restful and peaceful sleep!  Any opportunity where I don’t have to cook is welcomed by me.  The staff at Saddleback Inn were courteous, friendly and warm as well making our trip memorable and delightful.

There are many activities to engage in at Lake Arrowhead.  Our short weekend trip was filled with strolling the town, hiking, dining, watching a movie and of course getting some needed R&R.  We loved our trip so much that we are planning another one and bringing our kids too.

    Debbie what a beautiful place! I love how you said “purposely pause” it’s so true that we need to take time to enjoy and recognize our blessings, and pausing is a way that doesn’t take a lot of time but just enough to refresh. Perfect! My husband and I are going off for a get away in a few months and this post has me all excited! Thanks for sharing! And that picture of you and Albert should hang in your office, what a gorgeous couple!!

      Hi Amanda! It is seriously an amazing place! Yes, I remember typing the word pause and reflecting and mindfully inserting the word ‘purposely’ because that was what that mini-getaway meant for us as a couple. Those moments away from the kiddos are few but when they are there — they are cherished immensely and spending it in Lake Arrowhead was balm for the soul and uber romantic!
