This place was so clean. It was a good fit for our family of four that wanted some fun in the snow. Lots of little sledding spots right behind the house. Easy to get to grocery store. House equipped with what you’d need to be on vacation comfortably. We’d stay again.

What a cozy and peaceful stay we had at the Dancing Bear Chalet, in Lake Arrowhead. 👍🏻 Would we come and stay there again? YES! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this lovely home. Best wishes!! 😀

We enjoyed this home. The kitchen had all the amenities to prepare home cooked meals. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck. The WiFi was great. We connected our computer to the TV and watched streaming television using our provider. The soaps in the bathroom and hotel grade towels were a nice touch. The one small downside was that the hot water ran out after a few showers. If guests space their showers further apart that should not be a problem.

Scenic views and a large deck to relax. The house was spacious and clean inside but there were many things that were not kept up outside of the home. Trash overflowing outside to the point where one bottle wouldn’t even fit in the bins, which of course wildlife got into. Broken board on the back of the house with missing paneling. An old patio umbrella full of holes laying on the deck that has been there for who knows how long.
Manager response:
Hi, Jathan! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit at Dancing Bear Chalet. There is no dump site in Arrowhead, so we have vendors coming around to pick up trash. We apologize if they were not able to get to your rental prior to wildlife making a mess. The property manager is taking care of the missing paneling and patio umbrella. We hope to see you again!

The house is cozy but was perfect for the four of us visiting Lake Arrowhead. This home sits among many pine trees and has a beautiful deck in the back with a view of the forest and mountains. Two of the large rooms are upstairs along with a full bathroom. When you walk in, the living room with a firplace, a nice size kitchen along with another room and full bathroom. We loved this home!! So glad we came across the Dancing Bear Chalet.

The house was beautifully decorated, comfortable and in a convenient location. However, I called twice as I was early for check in and both times was told the cleaning crew was not finished and needed inspection. Once my family and I went in, though, dust was all over the tables & chimney area, back porch was not as tidy as expected, and spider webs all over the ceilings in the living room and bedrooms. The hot water was turned off, but that was remedied within an hour. Overall, had a good experience.
Manager response:
Hello Jeanette, We apologize the home was not at the level of cleanliness we hold ourselves too. We have notified our local housekeeping team to address this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience and do hope you will give us another chance to impress you in the future!

This is a nice place to stay. It is older and could use some updates. That being said, we enjoyed ourselves and would stay here again! The rooms are big and comfortable! The house is close to lake and village. Also close to the golf course/country club. Great areas to walk. The beds are really comfortable! Very clean too! The outside deck in back is very nice.
Drawbacks - no cable. Has Wi-Fi and DVD/VHS players - but movies are older. No TVs in the bedrooms (maybe not a bad thing!)

The only thing was we had problems finding the keys as they were not where I was told they would be. But we finally found them.

A gorgeous little chalet in the woods. Everything was totally clean and had everything we needed.

I would give it 5 stars but the railing on the back porch is loose and is a serious safety hazard. It needs to be tightened asap. Everything else was perfect.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are happy to report that the railing has been repaired. We hope to host you again soon.

The cabin was spotless! The beds were super comfy and kitchen stocked to cook anything!!

After another booking fell through the day before our planned trip, I was happy to find this adorable home! It was really clean and spacious. All the comforts of home were provided. Our kids loved the creek just down the hill in the back, and we loved the comfort of the couches and beds!
It was just a short 10 min drive to the Village and we enjoyed time at Santa’s Village in Skyforest as well.
Definitely would return our next time in Lake Arrowhead!

Dancing Bear Chalet is such an amazing place to stay and the location couldn't be any better. The cabin was beautifully decorated and maintained, we were so impressed by how everything clean was. Definitely. Great job Vacasa.
Judy O. Nov 2018
Dancing Bear was very cozy and clean.. was able to get in early due to the kind people at Vacasa... would not rent again unless the owners had WiFi and Cable... we also needed a poker to move the firewood around... more kitchen towels needed... the heating system was excellent... we had a very nice stay... loved the deck and looking out to the forest.. was also easy to get to the Village
Manager response:
We appreciate the feedback. All amenities available in the unit can be found under the listing description. Unfortunately, the owners have decided to not provide WiFi or Cable. We will contact the Local Manager to make sure the appropriate fireplace tools are provided.
