Originally opened as the Lake Arrowhead Hilton Lodge in 1982, the 27-acre year-round resort changed its name to Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa in 1990. In 2013 following a multi-million-dollar renovation, the resort joined Marriott International’s Autograph Collection and was the first hotel in Southern California to become part of its exclusive portfolio. With a refreshed look and lakefront “camp” ambiance, Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa is an ideal getaway for travelers looking for a traditional lakeside vacation.

With its full-service spa, a heated outdoor pool and two Jacuzzis, the resort caters to all travelers: families, couples, bridal groups and corporate retreats who all are looking for exclusive access to the private lake.
