Offering premium hotel lodging, exquisite dining and seasonal entertainment in a resort atmosphere 5000 feet up, and perfectly located near beautiful Lake Arrowhead and the "Lake Arrowhead Village" shopping and entertainment complex, The Saddleback Inn, the locals' favorite, will not disappoint even the most discerning vacationer.

With queen or king beds, river rock gas log fireplaces, double whirlpool baths, air conditioning, refrigerators, suite combinations of one to three bedrooms, some pet friendly cottages, a 4 star "locals favorite" restaurant and full bar, the Saddleback Inn offers something for everyone. The Saddleback Inn is also within walking distance of Lake Arrowhead, as well as the main commercial, entertainment, shopping and dining area, Lake Arrowhead Village - both are a mere 5 minute stroll from the Saddleback Inn.

Great pub ambience with drop dead good pot pie! Can’t recommend the bloody Mary’s as they were weak not spicy. But the pot pie makes up for it. Fireplace would be cozy on a winter visit. Happy hour is 4-6.

According the Lake Arrowhead website: "Please be aware that Lake Arrowhead is a private lake. Therefore, it's use is restricted to homeowners in a tract of land roughly 1 mile around the perimeter of the lake, known as "Arrowhead Woods". However, many lake-related activities are available to the general public. Visitors to the area can access Lake Arrowhead by boat on The Arrowhead Queen Lake Tour, by water ski through the McKenzie Water Ski School, or on foot by strolling at Lake Arrowhead Village."

"Do not get a room that overlooks the main hgy as it is very nosy all day and night."
"ask for the room that does not hear karaoke which is Tuesdays and Fridays 8pm until 12AM"
"Definitely get a cabin farther back as it's right on a busy street."
"Don't book a cottage in the front adjoining the parking lot"
"Not all rooms have fireplaces, so double check if you want one."
