Lake Arrowhead Resort; A Perfect Family Getaway!
Recently, I was looking for a great local getaway for the family. My requirements were: 1. Short Travel Time in the car. 2. Kid – Friendly / Pet Friendly. 3. Lots of pool and water time. 4. I really wanted to un-plug from work and focus on my family.
I have been wanting for the last few years to travel to Lake Arrowhead and heard great reviews on the Lake Arrowhead Resort and recently they were added to the Marriott family! Full disclosure I was given a press rate and upgraded room for my stay. All opinions expressed are my own and no compensation was given.
The room was spacious and had everything we could possibly need. it also was free of creepy crawly’s… I go on vacations and no matter how 5 star the hotel is the spiders always find me. I did not leave with one bite! It was a 1-bedroom suite with plenty of room to put two roll out twin beds in the living area for the kids and for my husband and I to have our separate sleeping space.
The bathroom had a separate shower stall and a water jet tub that was so deep, my 5 year old daughter could stand in the center and barely see over the edge ( but her favorite part was all of the bubbles)!
We were pleasantly surprised that our room had an ice maker in it, along with a fridge ( there is a store within walking distance) and the room was stocked with coffee and condiments too.
The pool was my kids favorite part. They enjoyed going in between the pool, the jaccuzzi and the private lake. FYI… the lake is dog friendly so you can bring your pooch down with you.
Since the lake is private and only owners can drive a boat you have limited choices to get on a boat. What we loved was taking a ride on the boat that the hotel owns. It was perfect and private and the dog could join us for a small cleaning fee! The trip around the lake was expertly guided by the hotel’s resident captain.
The pool and surrounding area were clean and quiet. The kids had an amazing time alternating swimming and warming up in one of the two nearby jacuzzis. The pool deck has a beutiful view of the lake which adds to it’s wonderfully relaxing atmosphere.
We definetly want to make this an annual trip, the kids can’t stop talking about it and how much they loved the resort! The dog on the other hand would definetly not pass up another opportunity!
