Gangsters & Mysteries at former Bed & Breakfast in Lake Arrowhead

 

The ‘Bracken Fern Manor’ at 815 Arrowhead Villa Road was originally built by famous Mobster Bugsy Seagel. This former B & B is located about 3 miles outside of Lake Arrowhead, CA and has been said that the inn still maintained all the charisma & ambiance of the Roaring '20s.

 

It was originally called Club ‘Arrowhead’ and first opened on July 4, 1929 and cost 1.3 million to build. The Club catered to the rich and glamour of Hollywood by offering gambling, illegal liquor, and prostitution. It also offered extravagant amenities such as an olympic size swimming pool, skiing, tennis courts, a bathhouse, and so much more.

 

After proving to the mob that this gambling club was so successful, that Bugsy was soon able to convince the bosses in Chicago to front the money for another little gambling spot in the middle of nowhere — Las Vegas.

 

The brothel, known as “The Crib,” continued operations through World War II and gambling operations were maintained in the speakeasy up to 1955.

 

Gangsters & Mysteries at former Bed & Breakfast in Lake Arrowhead Bracken Fern has its dark side too. The B & B is also said to be haunted by a former prostitute named Violet. Violet killed herself after the mob killed her lover and it is said that her violet scented perfume can still be smelled wafting through the halls.

 

Another ghost of a small boy has also been seen at this historic inn. Thought to be the son of a former prostitute he was trampled by a team of horses. Today his tiny footsteps are often seen in the snow.

 

Gangsters & Mysteries at former Bed & Breakfast in Lake ArrowheadThe Bracken Fern Manor is a Certified Historic Landmark in the State of California. Some lovely features of this inn was a oversized fireplace, a library, a wine cellar and two decks.

 

Unfortunately it closed in early 2012 so we will wait and see if it opens back up. I am waiting.................
