“Serene Escape”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a lushly located gem of a cottage! With its combination of luxury, coziness, and comfort, Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage provided a sweet, serene escape from city life. The hosts may have been unseen but their spirit of warm and generous hospitality was experienced in every square foot of living space! Welcomed by a note from them along with starter snacks and condiments, we felt we had just checked into a 5-star hotel. When contact with Paul and Janice during our stay was required, both were readily available and immediately helpful. An informative photo history of the lodge as well as a detailed notebook with local information was provided for reference, guiding travel beyond the front door and footbridge to nearby Lake Arrowhead. One cannot help but appreciate the meticulous attention to detail and the rustic décor throughout the cottage. Every getaway need was provided for...and then some! There are many lounging locations on the property that, in our opinion, were perfectly posed for the purpose of quiet conversation, reading, rest and reflection. Whether it was on the upstairs balcony overlooking the tree-lined canyon, the master bedroom corner seating area, the blooming rhododendron-rimmed patio, the dogwood shaded front porch or the rustic fireside living room (with very comfortable leather furniture), each area served as an invitation to come away for a while and be still. Background music provided by Pandora echoed throughout the house with speakers upstairs and down and capped off the soothing ambience. The fully equipped kitchen made meal prep a breeze and meals were easily served up in the adjacent dining area where a well-framed view of the natural beauty surrounding the property was provided for by a large strategically placed bay window. There the gentle canyon breeze floated effortlessly through the delicate leaves of the dogwood trees, the chipmunks and squirrels were easily seen scampering about, and several varieties of birds provided aerial entertainment in the distance. We highly recommend Burnt Mill Canyon Cottage to all who are long overdue for a purposeful break from a frenzied routine and in need of reorienting soul and self to those things most meaningful in life.

“Perfect Cabin for Two”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We decided to get away to "celebrate" my birthday in solitude and the Burnt Mill Cabin didn't disappoint. Everything was perfect, inside and out. You can see the love and attention to detail in every room. We enjoyed it so much that we cancelled our dinner reservation on my birthday and stayed in so we could continue lounging, reading and listening to the great tunes on Pandora. The only things missing was the snow, but we can't control the weather. Janice & Paul made it so welcoming - even setting out snacks - I felt like I was checking into a B&B. And speaking of B, the bed was heavenly. I loved the mattress! We will definitely come back for another "just the two of us" getaway. The only thing I would suggest is providing another blanket throw downstairs, because we were cozied up in the recliners and each of us wanted a blanket.
