Cute as a Button Authentic 1920’s Lake Cottage ( FOR FILM SHOOTS ONLY)

Malibou Lake , Yes, that is how it was spelled in 1920, when this lake side community came into existence! Once a sporting and fishing weekend destination, this Idyllic lake is minutes from the beach yet a rustic retreat feeling envelopes it. This hidden mountain community is a crazy little secret none knows about!

This charming cottage, recently remodeled, is a lovely place for a film shoot.

This home has a nearby private dock,motor boat and a paddle board to use as props…

Malibou Lake has been the backdrop for an amazing array of films from the original Frankenstein ( remember the little girl at the waters edge?I’ll give you a hint, it didn’t end well), to Desperate Housewives. Hollywood Pedigree from Carey Grant to Clark Gable have graced this lakes shore.

Nearby is the Malibu Cafe. A great outdoor dining establishment, part of Calimigos Ranch. They offer up an amazing Sunday brunch. Eat outside in the mountains, play pool under an ancient oak with a chandelier hanging from the trees. Very cool vibe, kid friendly and unique!

Cornel winery tasting room. Beautifully decorated tasting room offers flights of wines, meat and cheese platters and lots of goodies to buy. If you purchase a bottle of wine here you can take it next door to have with dinner and they only charge you 5 bucks corkage fee. Its a win/win. and speaking of next door…

The Old Place …famous hideaway for the likes of Steve Mc Queen, and old rebel bad boys of Hollywood.It is rumored to be an old stagecoach stop . Authentic 1920’s this place is like an old saloon. It has an old fashioned piano inside and on friday and saturdays, someone always comes along to play it! A huge bar with locals grace the place and make it seem like cheers, in the mountains!
