GT: What makes Lake Arrowhead such a great LGBT destination?

TM: We are located only 1.5 hours from Palm Springs and LA or 2 hours from San Diego; but nothing like our surrounding desert cities. Lake Arrowhead Resort is a perfect romantic mountain retreat nestled on the shores of a beautiful lake. Right now, the Palm Springs area is enduring tempuratures well into the 100's and we are enjoying temps in the 80s during the day and a cool 65 at night. Many of the gay residents of Palm Springs would enjoy escaping the heat to come play in the lake, enjoy our fabulous spa and shop at the outlets in the Lake Arrowhead Village next door. Lake Arrowhead is the playground for many celebrities who own 2nd or 3rd homes on the lake.

GT: What are some hotspots gay and lesbian travelers should check out when they are in Lake Arrowhead?

TM: This destination is not for the gay and lesbian traveler who is into a hot party nightlife; frankly it is more for those who want a get away. Days filled with outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, boating on our privated pontoon boat, endulging themselves in the spa and dining in our 4 star restaurant. "Roughing the wilderness in luxury".
