Lake Arrowhead, 4 Seasons Resort

By: Connie Young

Ninety miles east of Los Angeles, Lake Arrowhead is home to its 782-acre alpine lake, enjoyed year-round by local residents and countless visitors from 'down the hill'.

This four seasons lake and village enjoy a rich Hollywood filming history with such memorable movies like The Great Race, Magnificent Obsession, Space Jam, Boy, Did I Get a wrong Number, and The Parent Trap.

Lake Arrowhead was known as a playground of the rich and famous. Magnificent mansions dot the shoreline and homeowners with lake rights enjoy all kinds of watersports. For the rest of us, The Arrowhead Queen, a Louisiana-style paddle wheel boat, provides 50-minute narrated tours of Lake Arrowhead, pointing out spots where stars have lived and movies were filmed.

Lake Arrowhead Village, at the waters edge, is a collection of boutiques, restaurants and famous brand retailers. You’re sure to find the perfect gift, souvenir and delicious meal while strolling the mountain village. Entertainment events are scheduled year-round on the Village’s large elevated stage.

This destination is a great day trip as well as overnight or longer in one of Lake Arrowhead’s beautiful hotels or rustic cabins.
