About lewis murray

When looking for the perfect place to raise a family, we chose Lake Arrowhead for its fresh air, friendly people, natural beauty, and close proximity to everything Southern California has to offer.

Thirty years later, our children are grown and have moved to other cities, states, and countries. We find ourselves with this beautiful home in the mountains and no one to share it with. That is why we decided to share it with you through Vacation Rentals by Owner.

It is our hope that you will find Old North Shore Lodge the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty that is abundant in this spectacular mountain escape. Old North Shore Lodge is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood close to the lake.

We welcome families, retreats, church groups, and friends looking to spend some quality time together. Our home and neighborhood is not conducive to loud parties.

Enjoy your visit to Old North Shore Lodge!

What a location!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, warm fireplace, beautiful lake views, and a gated community? What a combo! This house is nestled into the side of a hill which affords the views in at least 180 degree approach. Two decks, one off the master, gives ample relaxation opportunities. A well appointed kitchen, multiple bathrooms up and down with a great claw foot tub in the guest bath, and two walk in showers in the master and downstairs guest bath. Separate areas for splitting up the group, early sleepers upstairs and night owls downstairs with their own fireplace, couches and bedroom and tv. Community is far enough away to feel secluded but close enough to grab those last minute items from Jensen’s or the village for restaurants. Would definitely hear back next trip!

Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

The property was a beautiful cabin in the woods overlooking the lake. The amenities were great and it had a nice, big kitchen perfect for cooking. The beds were comfortable and clean. It also came with a washer and dryer, which comes in handy when you have little ones. Overall, we were happy with our stay. :)

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas at The Treehouse. There were lots of different areas in the home to get away by yourself, spread out or gather together. The kitchen was a highlight for us foodies - so well stocked with equipment and essentials. The view of the lake from the balconies was breathtaking - the sunsets amazing. We would definitely come back. Thank you for sharing your home with us Lewis and Brenda.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, comfortable, spacious yet "warm and cozy," close to the lake, and it offers everything you could want for a vacation stay at Lake Arrowhead.

The owners pay attention to the details and they made sure that the home was stocked with everything useful you might need during your stay. There were also many personal touches throughout the home that gave us the feeling that we were "part of their family."

Booking was easy and the owners were very professional and prompt with email replies and with providing detailed instructions, maps to the home, etc. To top everything off we were welcomed with a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival!

If that isn't enough, after we left I was contacted by the owner to inform me that I had left some articles of clothing behind. He courteously boxed and shipped them to my home within the week at no cost to me.

Great experience, great people. We will definitely return!!!

Located in the San Bernardino National Forest, Lake Arrowhead is the premier mountain resort community is Southern California.

Whether you are looking for hiking, cycling, fly fishing, bird watching, or just revitalizing your soul, you will discover what so many others have, including the who’s who of the movie and film industry. Lake Arrowhead is the hidden jewel of Southern California just waiting for you to discover…or rediscover…its beauty, charm, friendly people, and clean fresh air!

Once you arrive, you will discover that this beautiful mountain home is just a short walk down a mountain path to beautiful Lake Arrowhead. Hike the trails, fish for rainbow trout, go for a swim in the beautiful blue lake, or spend some time relaxing a mile high above the hustle and bustle of city life.

Walk about 1 mile along historic Old North Shore Road to the Tavern Bay Beach Club. Tavern Bay Beach Club is private, but your stay includes a membership card allowing you access.

Lake Arrowhead Village is less than a 10 minute drive from Old North Shore Road. You will find shopping, dining, and a kid’s fun park. A must-do is a ride on the Arrowhead Queen Paddle Boat. Learn about the history of the Lake, see some celebrity homes, and maybe even catch a glimpse of a bald eagle. For those interested in water skiing, Mackenzie Water Ski School is available for lessons and charter ski trips.

There are several other charming communities in the Lake Arrowhead area that have amenities to offer including Blue Jay, Cedar Glen, and Twin Peaks.

For you outdoor enthusiasts, hiking trails are nearby including the renowned Pacific Crest Trail, which passes just north of Lake Arrowhead. Travel out Hook Creek Road to Splinter’s Cabin and you will discover Deep Creek Recreational Area. You can fly fish, swim, or hike along the pristine shores of Deep Creek. Other popular hiking trails include North Shore Trail, The Pinnacles, and The Hot Springs.

In the winter time, you will find that Snow Valley Ski Resort is close by and offers all levels of skiing from beginning to advanced. There is also a “tubing” park as well as countless locations for snow play. If you are traveling up in the winter time, it is highly recommended that you carry chains, even if you own a 4 wheel drive. One of the big advantages of this home during the winter time is that it is located on a private road, that has private snow plowing. Old North Shore Road crosses State Hwy 173, which is one of the first roads to be plowed and is continually maintained during snow storms. For those reasons, access in and out of Old North Shore Road is excellent even in bad weather.

Bring your family, bring your friends, but leave your cares behind. Regardless of how long you stay, you will return home refreshed, revitalized, and planning your next trip to Old North Shore Lodge.
