The most challenging mountain hikes for experienced hikers
When we are entering this season, and the weather begins to cool I’ve found the perfect spot to enjoy an easy, relaxing escape to unwind and make preparations for the season. Hidden among the stunning backdrops of California Nature, lies The Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa. It’s situated at an elevation of 4,000 feet on Lake Arrowhead’s mountain. This place is perfect for romantic weekends or families vacations that all can enjoy.
On arrival, we were greeted by the friendly staff and we were quickly moved into our rooms. The rooms were comfortable and inviting with a mountain feel. My balcony overlooked the jacuzzi and heated pool. The pool was stunning, with a breathtaking panorama of Lake Arrowhead. The views of the mountains, lakes, mountain ranges and trees were spectacular everywhere you went. We explored the surroundings of the hotel following our arrival and been settled into our rooms. The hotel featured a sleek design with a crackling fire within the large brick fireplace, and the large leather couches , as well as the modern light fixtures which look like stunning art glass.
As we unpacked and settled into our hotel and sat down to relax, we went on a tour of the hotel. We walked down an avenue and we found ourselves among the trees close to the lake. After exploring the surroundings and returning to our hotel and got ready to eat dinner. Bin Restaurant & Bar was located within the resort. We made reservations. Food and drinks were excellent – starting with the freshly baked hot bread to the succulent crisp orange chicken, as well as the perfect hot steak that was served with a fantastic reduction sauce. The music was on that further enhanced the mood and atmosphere of the night.
Our next day was a day when we had the opportunity to be treated to a boat ride on the majestic Lake Arrowhead, learning some facts about the lake’s history throughout the journey. It was a great experience to spend time on Arrowhead which is a private, man-made lake. Only those with memberships in the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa and private clubs are allowed boats. The only people who buy tickets to the Arrowhead Queen Tour Boat are entitled to use the boat. It was an absolute pleasure to take on the breathtaking scenery enjoying the boat ride.
The resort is lovely and relaxing–a must-visit. We made the decision to go on cruise on the lake and walk around Lake Arrowhead Village before we had dinner. There is always a photograph opportunity wherever you are. If you’re looking for content related to nature, the background of Lake Arrowhead and mountains are a must. We did some shopping and had a great meal at Jetter’s Restaurant on the water to watch the sunset before settling down for the evening. The final day of our trip saw us travel to SkyPark Santa’s Village. There’s plenty to see and do.
There’s plenty to do for everyone, including zip-lining, rock climbing and skating. You might even be lucky enough to have a photograph together with Santa or convince him you were nice and not in a bad mood, so he will bring you the gifts you asked for at Christmas. The plan for us was to complete our trip by visiting the spa following our return from the resort. It is a must. Spa of the Pines offers amazing massages. Then, we sat back in their tranquil spaces.
What lessons can we take away
