The Hideaway is a romantic little 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom efficiency cabin in Wrightwood, just 5 miles to Mountain High Ski Resort and even less to Big Pines (formerly Navitat) ziplines -- with discounts to both available to our guests (see below).
The Hideaway is perfect for a romantic getaway for 2, a solo retreat for 1, a small family with 1-2 little tykes, or a couple of good friends that don't mind sharing a small space. Larger groups can book it together with our other cabin, Little Pines, which is on the same property.
The Hideaway's cozy bedroom has a romantic canopy. The living area has a futon plus a wall-mounted flat screen TV with Dish Satellite and DVD Player, and an antique wood stove for fires on cozy nights. And WIFI, of course! Many other rentals in Wrightwood do not offer wifi/internet so read the descriptions carefully before you book.
The kitchenette has a unique custom concrete counter, a half-time convection and microwave oven, a one-burner cooktop, and a 3/4 sized refrigerator plus dishes, utensils, toaster, rice cooker, waffle maker, coffee and espresso makers, etc.
The cute little bathroom has an oversized shower; towels and toiletries provided (as are all bed linens). Pedestal sink, views of mountains from bathroom window.
The deck sits under pine trees with a view of the mountains, and has a table and 4 chairs plus there's a large gas BBQ for grilling. Nearby is a hammock under the pine trees.
The garage (not used for parking) has a washer, dryer, bikes, sleds, lots of board games, over 250 DVDs, and a relaxing 2-person wooden sauna with steam rocks.
Short drive or long walk to town. Short walk to hiking and sledding. Easy to find the cabin. Arrive anytime; after booking we'll provide the key code to let yourself in. Have fun!

Interaction with Guests
We live close by and can be on hand if needed, but generally our correspondence is only through email, texts, and sometimes phone calls when necessary. Let yourself in with the key code we provide; come and go at your own convenience. For guests that would like more interaction, we are more than happy to stop by, introduce ourselves, and answer questions about the cabin or the area when we are available, but in our experience most guests prefer to just have their own space.
The Hideaway is located near the edge of a little neighborhood that's surrounded on all sides by mountains. Walk a couple blocks and you'll be in national forest land. Part of the neighborhood includes the Pacific Crest Estates, Wrightwood's most prestigious neighborhood. The neighborhood is very pleasant for walks, even at night when you can see thousands of stars. Or it's easy to get into hiking ground. It's about 2 miles from the cabin to the shops and restaurants in the village, just a little farther to the Big Pines zip lines, the Wrightwood Guest Ranch (for weddings), and Mountain High for skiing, snowboarding, and summertime disc golf.
The driveway has enough space for 2-3 cars. No public transportation is available in Wrightwood, but we do have bikes in the garage that you are free to use.
Other Things to Note
The Hideaway is very private. It's a second unit on the property and faces into the backyard -- you can't even see it from the street. Though it shares the property with our other cabin, Little Pines, it is laid out such that you don't have to interact or even see any guests that may be staying at the other cabin, unless you happen to be accessing the detached garage at the same time. If you rent both cabins together, it is very convenient to go between the two cabins for spending time together with larger groups (up to 11)
Four guests maximum. No smoking inside. No cigarette butts anywhere in the yard or on the property. Please consult the instructions in the cabin on how to use the Half-Time Oven and other appliances. No pets allowed without the permission of the owners and additional pet fee of $30. Four guests maximum at any time.
When the weather's nice you can open up the French doors to the deck and let the mountain breezes come in.
The HIDEAWAY was a fantastic getaway for my family. The house is neatly set up with all the basic and even more amenities available. The house was clean and just as described. The backyard was excellent. small little table, tire swing and a hammock was available.
The neighborhood was nice and quiet. People were very friendly saying hello as we took a walk around the neighborhood.
In the garage, the washer and dryer along with board games and bicycles were there for use. Even some extra jackets for the cold winter travelers were available in the garage.
Overall, the experience was very nice. My 5 year old son loved every minute of it and did not want to leave the place. If you like being surrounded by nature, I highly recommend checking out this place. I'd visit again and we plan to visit again during the fall/winter season.
Just had a great weekend at the Hideaway! My girlfriend and I holed up for the weekend and enjoyed the outdoor patio, nostalgia-inducing board games and cozy space. A great place to rest and hang out after some beautiful hikes on the Pacific Crest Trail!
Barbara was super friendly and helpful, which made our stay a breeze. I'd definitely recommend this space as an easy couple's weekend getaway close to LA.
The actual space inside the hideaway is very functional, but quite small (could be a bit awkward if you were REALLY tall). So only go with people you really like :)
My boyfriend and I stayed at The Hideaway for a night, and it was a lovely experience. The cabin is cozy, well-decorated, and the perfect size for a couple. There are plenty of pots, dishes, and a small hot plate for cooking. We enjoyed hanging out in the private backyard area, especially at night when all the stars were out - I don't know if we just lucked out the night we were there but the sky was clearer than I've seen almost anywhere in Southern California! We also took advantage of the giant DVD collection and folded out the futon to watch a film. The nature surrounding the area was beautiful and provided the peace & quiet we were looking for. We will definitely be back!
