Your Majestic Mountain Retreat is Waiting.

With four distinct seasons as a backdrop, things to do in Lake Arrowhead are practically limitless. Balmy days call for kayaking on the lake, fishing off the dock or relaxing on the beach, while the colder months are perfect for skiing down the mountain, hiking in the pines or warming your toes by the fire.

Take Time to Relax

Skip Take Time to Relax

Though our outdoor attractions are practically endless, we’re more than just a home base for skiing, fishing, hiking, biking and swimming. Our warm hospitality, lodge-style setting and tranquil spa invite you to unwind, too. Let your worries go, find your balance and soak up the serenity.

We’re located in a skier’s paradise in the ruggedly beautiful San Bernardino mountains. Though we’re less than two hours from the bustling metropolis of Los Angeles, our lakeside setting feels cozy and secluded and inspires you to immerse yourself in everything Lake Arrowhead has to offer.

Private Beach Access

There are only two ways to access Lake Arrowhead-you have to own property around the lake, or you have to be one of our guests. We're delighted to offer private beach access where you can enjoy a walk in the sand, roast marshmallows over a bonfire or listen to a ranger from the San Bernadino National Forest Association share tall tales and real history about Lake Arrowhead and the surrounding mountains.

Something Fun for Everyone

With pine-draped mountains, a lake with a beach and four distinct seasons, Lake Arrowhead offers boundless outdoor recreation activities such as hiking, snow skiing, four-wheelers, water skiing, fishing, dirt bikes, paddleboarding and much more. We’re the antidote to the urban frenzy of L.A. and desert of Palm Springs, yet not far away from either.

The only way to get in the water or enjoy the sandy beach of Lake Arrowhead is to be a local resident or our guest. We offer access to the lake via our own private boat, or you can hop on the Lake Arrowhead Queen, which is operated by Lake Arrowhead Village. Be sure to ask us about daily sunset cruises, fishing charters and private charters (availability depends on the season).

San Manuel Casino
Enjoy world-class games of chance, fabulous restaurants and the best in live entertainment.

San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino is a massive gambling complex in the foothills of Highland, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. 

Unlike most Indian casinos, San Manuel is not in a remote mountain area, but is nestled in the foothills of the Tehachapi mountains while still inside a Los Angeles suburban area. You drive right to the edge of town, but you don't have to drive on any winding 30-mile-per-hour roads along canyon edges to get here.

There are no other poker rooms for at least 40 or 50 miles in any direction. But San Manuel has got you covered with a really great room.
