Crestline is the first town you hit on the way up to Lake Arrowhead, but it’s still high enough in the San Bernardinos to qualify as a full-on mountain escape. Somewhere between good looking enough to impress your significant other (daily housekeeping will help) and low key enough that you can (read: should) wear sweatpants all weekend, the cabins here sleep anywhere from two to 12 and range from $89 to $325 a night. Some units are pet-friendly, and the hot tub will be open all summer and fall. BYO Chernobly.
