Stayed in one of the big cabins for my son's 17th birthday- the cabin was nice & cozy. Loved the convenience of the walking distance to the Village & 7-11! The restaurant attached to the Inn was HORRIBLE- we paid an enormous amount of money for disgusting food that tasted like it came out of the microwave & was over...

Have wanted to stay here for many years and never made it. The location is just fantastic, plus it's even got a cute history of those that built the original lodge. Lots of variety of choices for booking rooms, and cabins etc... here... so maybe some are better or worse than others. The exteriors are very nice and seem well...

We stayed at the Saddleback Inn in January and it was everything we wanted in the cottage away from home. We were a family of 4, the cottage has all the amenities that you would need to feel right at home (microwave, refrigerator etc, coffee maker). The rooms were spacious, clean and nice kept. We stayed at the 2 bedroom...

This hotel is very nice and well kept. The staff was friendly and the breakfast they serve is delicious, for just being eggs, sausage, and potatoes. It is very close to the Lake Arrowhead village and walking distance to the lake. Which is good because you can leave your car in the hotel parking lot and you don't have to...

It was foggy while we driving in the mountain/cliff area. Kinda scary because we could only see about 10m ahead. It got better when we were actually there. When we got to the saddleback it had a very homey feel to it. The people were friendly and the room was nice. We took a king sized and another mattress on...

Came December 16-18 with hubby and 8 month old son. Stayed in room 29. Location: right off the main road. Easy walking distance to the village and lake which we did do. Roads were icy from a previous storm but the hotel was not bad. All steps were salted and the parking lot scraped. There is also a 7-Eleven right...

We stayed in the Lucky Lindy and it was a fantastic room! However, be aware if you're booking for a Friday night, as they do karaoke until midnight right under the room. Upon check in, we were told that this information was provided upon books, but it was nowhere to be seen. Despite this, it is a lovely room. If...

My husband & I went up on a Sunday and stayed the night. We love the location and have stayed here 4xs in the past few years. Comfortable and clean rooms with cozy fireplaces, spa tubs, in a wooded setting. A racoon came to visit us that night & observed us from the roof. Fun! The restaurant has delicious food...

This place was pretty cool. It is really an old main Lodge-type building nestled in a rambling complex of cabins. It feels charming and rustic. The accommodations are ok but not first-class. The complimentary breakfast was so-so. There is a neat, old bar in the main building, which hosts a Karaoke night on Friday. This was actually the favorite part...
