Our unique Condolets are a combination of a condominium and chalet, and comprise the majority of overnight accommodations here at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge. Most condolets are two-story units with a queen bed and full bath on each level. On the ground level there is a shared living room with a sleeper sofa, work desk, and wood-burning fireplace. The remaining accommodations at the lodge are individual rooms with a queen bed and private bathroom, as well as a sprinkling of vintage cottages. All sleeping rooms offer the amenities of an upscale hotel room.
