COVID-19 Mitigation Efforts

Health and safety is our utmost priority. Please review all of our COVID-19 mitigation protocols in place to ensure the safety of our guests and team members. Among many other protocols, none of our team members, including guest room cleaning staff, will enter your room during your stay, except in emergencies. Your room remains vacant for one night before and after your stay. All UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge team members are tested weekly for COVID-19 and complete a daily symptom-monitoring survey. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the Main Lodge.
We expect our guests to help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep the safety of all guests and team members at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge in mind during their stay. Please monitor yourself for symptoms before your arrival. Please note that your temperature will be taken prior to checking in and masks are mandatory in all enclosed spaces and wherever you might come into contact with other guests or team members. Guests are expected to maintain a six-foot physical distance from other households and UCLA team members at all times during their stay.
Currently, our Fitness Center and Indoor Jacuzzi are closed. No programs or UCLA team member led programs are available at this time.

Lake Arrowhead offers stunning alpine lake views, hiking and biking trails and a bustling village shopping and dining experience.
