Perched atop Summit Road in picturesque Lake Arrowhead Woods, this enchanting jewel box cottage pays homage to the allure of 1950s vintage wood boats with lacquer bead board and shiplap millwork detailing. “Hobbit Hollow” has been a family retreat that inspires the creative spirit for many over the years, a special place to engage with family and friends or to just break away for alone time to read, paint or write, surrounded by nature. The craftsman style architecture is timeless, featuring cedar siding and enamel black iron windows, anchored by red rock walls, steps, and a patio that beautifully compliments the home. Stepping inside, you’ll be transported to a cherished era of mountain living as the warm tones of the old-growth redwood walls wrap you in nostalgia. Peach glass window panes in the great room filter the outside views of the lake and natural foliage, casting a gentle hue throughout. The living spaces exude a romantic charm, with plush velvet drapes, wool rugs, and inviting, well-worn leather seating. Soft spotlights illuminate the massive stone fireplace, open kitchen shelving, and the vintage Alpine white O’Keefe and Merritt stove, creating a warm and welcoming ambiance. The dining room features an antler chandelier and built-in buffet cabinet. The home layout boasts two inviting primary bedroom suites at opposite ends of the home. Bedrooms have adjoining bathrooms, one with a pink tile shower enclosure and the other bathroom shines with a period turquoise tub/shower with an etched glass enclosure and lacquer-finished built-in cabinet drawers. Venturing outdoors, you’ll find yourself nestled amidst a lush canopy of cedar, dogwood, and quaking aspen trees, creating an intimate al fresco dining space complete with an outdoor fireplace, built-in gas grill and kitchen with a sink that has hot and cold water. The surrounding Sequoia, Cedar, Blue Spruce, Pine and Dogwood trees weave their branches, harmonizing with the seasonal blooms that dot the expansive half-acre property. And for those moments of relaxation, a hammock sways gently, offering a serene perch to savor the tranquil lake views and the crisp mountain air.
In its entirety, this cottage is a haven where vintage elegance compliments the serenity of the mountains, inviting you to escape into a world where time slows, and the beauty of nature and craftsmanship merge into a perfect retreat.
