TIRE CHAINS ARE REQUIRED DURING SNOW CONDITIONS. They will have road blocks searching vehicles to be sure they are carrying tire chains. We cannot give refunds for guests who are not prepared.

There is a Roku streaming device so you can stream movies, TV series and more for free.

The RETRO-MODERN CABIN is more than just a cabin. We used eco-friendly details in every step of our remodel.
*Recycled milk containers in the deck railings.
*A low flush toilet
*Energy efficient appliances
*Double paned windows
*Radiant heated floors
*Bose surround sound speakers in the ceiling
*ROKU streaming device for accessing my Netflix or Amazon Prime, Hulu and stream cable TV channels free like CNN, sports & HGTV plus all regular TV channels. accounts to watch movies or your favorite TV shows
*3 flat screen TVs with DVD players (2 are region-free) so you can bring DVDs.
*4G high-speed Internet and WiFi
*Fully stocked kitchen includes a juicer, blender, coffee maker, French press for coffee, water heating kettle, toaster oven, crock pot and most everything else you might need.
*COMBINATION CONVECTION/MICROWAVE OVWN-ONE APPLIANCE DOES BOTH! (one reviewer said no oven, but she was mistaken. She did not know the microwave is also a convection oven which allows you to bake
cookies. You can also bake and microwave pizza [or anything] at the same time-which cooks and browns at the same time. It's a lot faster than just an oven! Just be sure to take the wire rack out of the oven while in microwave mode!)
*Combination eco-friendly washer and dryer all-in-one in one unit. Please read the manual before using. Be sure to wait 3 minutes for the child safety lock to "click" before trying to open the door.
*No cleaning fees if you clean it yourself. Cleaning supplies are stocked under the sinks.
*$95 deposit can be applied to cleaning if you don't have time to clean up. Let me know if you don't intend on cleaning so I can book cleaners before the next guests arrive!
*You must bring your own sheets & pillowcases (full or twin sized) and bring your own towels.
*You must bring paper towels and toilet paper-I live out of town and cannot stock the place for you-sorry!
*You must carry tire chains in your car at all times during snow conditions.
*Parking for 2 cars will be plowed (this is already included in the price)
*Wood burning fireplace (bring your own firewood & kindling)

We considered the environment in our renovations. The RETRO-MODERN CABIN is a two bedroom, one bath home, with wood burning fire place, a double sided wall furnace, flat screen TVs in every room with DVD players, in ceiling Bose speakers for amazing sound and a Roku streaming device so you can stream live cable TV from the "Spectrum" app on it and other entertainment from your own Netflix account and more! My Amazon Prime and Hulu accounts are logged in on the Roku, so you can use those to expand your choices for viewing entertainment.

Each room has its own thermostat for the heated floors. Go snowboarding or skiing and throw your wet socks on the floor. In 30 minutes they are dry and warm!

It's a peaceful get away less than a couple hours drive from Los Angeles, Orange County and San Fernando Valley. The cabin is located in the mountains just above San Bernardino with only about 20 minutes of mountain driving, instead of the 45 minutes it takes to get to Big Bear.

Green Valley Lake is a fresh water lake that supplies our water. The water quality is better than Arrowhead, because there are no motors allowed on the lake. You can drink the tap water and take some home with you. You can rent paddle boats, and get a daily fishing license. They even stock the lake with trout! There is also a beach with a playground for the kids! There's motocross trails and hiking in the National Forest that surrounds the community. Located 7200 ft above sea level, it's Southern California's highest town. It's 20 degrees cooler in summer than Los Angeles or San Bernardino, and above the smog, so the air is fresh and clean. We get the most snow in winter. Snow Valley, Big Bear and Snow Summit ski resorts are 30 minutes away. We have it all, hiking, motorcross, fishing, bird-watching, skiing, snowboarding, and a beach!

The phone only has local and emergency dialing and some mobile phones do not have signal up there, so be prepared to use internet phoning or have people call you. There is WiFi and the TV in the living room can stream directly from the web with Roku. All the TVs all have HDMI inputs so you can always watch what's on your laptop, but bring your own HDMI cables.

The living area of the house, front deck, back deck, wood burning fireplace are all yours to enjoy!

I live out of town, so I will only do your online booking and a concierge can meet you and give you the keys. Or you can have access using the lockbox. We will provide you with your code with the arrival information.

In winter, they will also plow a parking spot for you, so let us know if one or two cars are coming up. They will pretty much leave you alone, but the owners of they live in Green Valley Lake so if you need any help, or have questions they are available.

It's mostly weekend rentals, so it's very quiet during the week and during non-holiday times. There is fishing, hiking, motorcross, snowboarding, skiing, bird-watching, a beach with a playground for the kids. A local market, snack bar, hardware store, bait shop, and post office.

No public transit.

Let me know whether or not you plan on cleaning the place. This way I can schedule a cleaner to come before the next group of guests. It also makes the refund of your deposit go quicker if you do plan to clean it. All cleaning supplies are provided, and a list is on the refrigerator.

YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS (FULL & TWIN), TOWELS, TOILET PAPER AND PAPER TOWELS. THESE ARE NOT SUPPLIED BY THE AGENCY. There is a Roku streaming device so you can stream movies, TV series and more for free. TIRE CHAINS ARE REQUIRED DURING SNOW CONDITIONS.

Erika's home was the perfect central point between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. We enjoyed spending time in both of these lake towns as well as taking a sunset swim in Green Valley Lake, not far down the road from Erika's. Her home felt cozy and had everything needed for a home away from home. We had no problem bringing our own TP, sheets and towels. I would definitely recommend Erika's rental.

This home with small, cute, and cozy. It was close to the lake and was such a peaceful getaway! The host was quick to respond to my questions and I definitely want to come back to take my dog(yes pet friendly too!) to enjoy the water and hikes.

About 10 minutes walking from the lake on a lovely street with other cabins. Super quiet and peaceful with the fragrant smells of the forest. Great big front porch and nice back deck. Hardwood floors and white leather furniture give it a clean feeling. Fully equipped kitchen although the oven is a little small. I like the modern glam look Erika is incorporating and can't wait to see what else she does!

Great little cabin. It had everything we needed and it was well furnished. We enjoyed our stay and didn't have any complaints.

It was as if we never left home. Clean, organized, pretty much every cooking utensil needed. I was more than comfortable and I mean who could complain about heated flooring when it's snowing outside. I see that people would leave little necessary things that one may forget. So I left some fire starters and a big bag of ice. I totally recommend staying at Erika's modern cabin. Thank you Erika for making my first time to the snow easy and one to remember.
