We enjoyed our stay so much it was very difficult to leave. The Zen Den is a perfectly charming little cabin nestled among the trees in a quiet mountain neighborhood. Listening to the early morning forest sounds while having a cup of coffee on the deck taking in the clean mountain air was a highlight . WiFi, Cable and TVs are all outstanding. The romantic master retreat alone is worth the price of the ticket. As always, Grant was a wonderful host and was immediately available to answer all questions. We will be staying at some his other properties in the area very soon. Thank you for the great time.
Grant as a host was really good and helpful. The Bavarian Zen Lodge was a nice cozy place and fits 7~8 people properly. All the minimum necessities required to stay were in place. Thank you for having us stay at this awesome place.
The Zen Den was great. Not only was it clean but the house was new and up to date. It was also in a good location since the local market wasn't too far away. I truly wished we could've stayed longer.
I recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a getaway mountain house.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Bavarian Zen Den! Played some snow Bocce ball. It was the perfect setting for us to celebrate New Years Eve.
Amazing amazing enchanting little cabin. Close to lake arrowhead village and the movie theater! We went for Christmas Eve and day and it was the best Christmas we've ever had for he both of us. The fire smelled amazing of cedar and the cabin was so warm
And cozy. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept so in the candle lit den:) They have all the kitchen utensils you need to bake and cook and they have cable tv so we watched movies! Such a great little escape that we are already recommending to everyone!

About the Host, Grant
I split my time living in Lake Arrowhead and Newport Beach. My wife and I also have a retreat in Napa Valley that we love to visit and rent out as a vacation rental as well. I love escaping to the mountain community of Lake Arrowhead to enjoy the fresh mountain air and active outdoor lifestyle. We have numerous vacation rental properties in Lake Arrowhead as well as Napa and enjoy having guests experience a great time in the mountains or the wine country.
