Originally a Roaring 20s casino and speakeasy, The Tudor House was built in 1928 by the infamous mobster Bugsy Siegel. After realizing that Lake Arrowhead was quickly becoming the escape for the Hollywood elite, Bugsy opened this exclusive members-only resort in 1929. At that time, the resort included luxury guest quarters (The Bracken Fern Manor still exists today), horse stables, an Olympic sized pool, tennis courts, a private gas station, an artisan well which was used for moonshine and most importantly - privacy. All at a rumored cost of over $1 million dollars.
This sprawling retreat in Arrowhead Villas has been completely restored to its original magnificence and is now a historic dining and wedding venue. The vaulted ceilings, great stone fireplace and raised stage give the room the perfect ambience. When you enter into the Grand Hall at The Tudor House, the room comes to life and you step into a bygone era.

While the Tudor House is absolutely beautiful and so unique, we had a few hiccups. If you are using the grounds, you can decorate and prep the day prior and the day of. If you are using the inside, you can only decorate the day of your wedding and must pay by the hour. In addition, you have to clean up, vacuum and vacate the inside by 10pm. You may stay in the grounds until 11pm.Sent on 05/26/2017
We did everything ourselves from rental, to center pieces to appetizers, to set up to just absolutely every detail. In the end it was just too much for 2 people who are getting married to do on their own. The rain did not help the situation either.
Other then that it is a beautiful and unique venue. The people who are in charge of booking and in charge of the grounds are absolutely wonderful. If this is the setting you want for a wedding of 50-60 people, I would recommend to hire someone for set up and clean up unless you are 10 or less people.
We paid 800$ for 5 hours. Rentals: tent, chairs, tables, plates, glasses, cutlery, linens, heater, etc, we spent 2200$.
