The Manner has not been cleaned in months. Smells, muggy and musty. When I asked about this the owner laughed at my comment and asked what did I expect? Rude old man and smelled of alcohol. The manner was not worth the price...not enough cold water, heater doesnt work in certain rooms and kitchen was filthy. Bathrooms had basic towels but the shower head leaked all over the place. I felt mislead in alot of ways. The owner very nice and accommodating until I booked then he didn't care one way or another. DONT BOTHER WITH THIS PLACE...falling apart and horribly neglected
We booked the whole building (10 rooms + kitchen and living spaces) over the Christmas holiday 23-25 and ended up staying till the 26th (for an additional nights fee of course) due to the snow. The hotel - It might not be for everyone but I personally like the timber house style, it is especially beautiful in the snow. The Manor is located > 2 miles away from Lake Arrowhead Village and right across from the Tudor House. The room - There are 10 rooms in the Manor and all (I think) have a private bath. Ours was on the 3rd floor overlooking the Tudor House and was extremely cold the first two nights (even though the hall was very warm) and extremely hot the 3rd night? The room only had the basic amenities - two sets of towels and a shampoo, conditioner, hand soap and lotion in the bathroom, a small hanging rod and armoire for your clothes and a mishmosh of furniture (chair and small bench) nothing else. It appeared to be clean but when laying in bed the first night my face and hands kept itching, possibly a reaction to bleach? I have very sensitive skin. I ended up sleeping with a tee shirt over the pillow the next two nights and the problem seemed to go away for the most part. Kitchen - It was nice to have the kitchen to ourselves to prepare meals during our stay. I am not sure if this is the norm (if you only rent one room) but I would hope so since no rooms had a fridge, micro or even a keurig. Activities - Lake Arrowhead Village is very close and offers shopping, dining and lake activities. Warning - during the winter months and specifically during Christmas weekend things run on their own schedule there. We definitely should have done research on this area ahead of time but it is hard since there is no reception for phones and only spotty wifi services available within a 5 mile radius of the Manor. So, without proper planning, we did end up heading down to the Village on both the 24th and the 25th. On the 24th we hitched a ride with the caretaker of the Tudor House since our cars were being held hostage by the snow (it snowed the night before and the two plows/bob cat that normally take care of our parking area/driveway were unreachable and the caretakers snow blower was also broke - for all three days). While there we were informed by a store that they would also be open the following day (Christmas Day) so we quickly got some basics and decided to come back the following day when we had more time. The next day we ended up having to walk back (due to day 2 of the car hostage situation and no Uber in the area) and were surprised when only 3 stores were open not including the one who said they would be or the grocery store. So after walking almost 2 miles, literally in the snow, we had to turn around and walked back with nothing to show for it. Staff - all were friendly but we had very few interactions. The caretaker from the Tudor House was the person we dealt with the most. He came and helped us dig cars out on the 26th when it was time for us to checkout. This was done by hand/man handling cars since, once again there was no plow/bobcat or blower available to come and clear the parking area/driveway. This is my main complaint but apparently the person in charge of our reservation was told to have all cars bring chains so this would have been only a small hiccup had the message been delivered I suppose. *PS the history of the Manor is that it was built for Bugsy Siegel and was the brothel building that went along with a gambling hall/building (Tudor House) and an additional building for guests. All are connected by tunnels that include a wine cellar and date back to the prohibition time. If you ask, everyone has a "ghost story" or has had an "experience" in the Manor. I personally think this is just a selling point and, besides the cold room on the first 2 nights, did not experience anything out of the ordinary for a 1920's house while there; however, my SO swears that the lights on the Christmas tree reacted to something he said late one night when it was just him and a cousin present. I don't know, I guess if you REALLY want to see something maybe you will?…
اسمحوا لي أن أبدأ بالقول أنه العائلة كنت استئجار كل 10, لذا فأنا لست متأكداً كيف أن تأجير غرفة مفردة. ومع ذلك، إنه مكان مثالى لعائلة. (كنا هنا في عيد الشكر) كل الغرف بها حمامات خاصة، حميم للغاية. لم أكن سعر هذا المكان كونه فاخر أو فخماً (لا يوجد حتى ان هناك جهاز تلفزيون) ولكن أود أن أقول إن كان فى حالة جيدة، الغرف كانت نظيفة و فريق العمل (جون، بيغي Jimmy) كانت مفيدة. يوجد مطبخ الرئيسية منطقة تناول الطعام الرئيسية بالإضافة إلى غرفة معيشة. The Manor يقع على بعد 5 دقائق من البحيرة، عبر الشارع من The Tudor House. والجميع يريد فعلاً نعرف. . . لا يوجد أحد في مجموعتنا كانت مسكونة في رحلتنا. كان فندق جاسمين إجزيكوتف الغرفة، كانت رائعة.
