Tax or "Transient Occupany Tax" in Lake Arrowhead
A "bed tax" is a levy imposed by a local government on hotel stays within its jurisdiction. A bed tax is a way for local governments to raise taxes without incurring the wrath of voters since, by definition, the people paying the tax are out of towners who don't vote in local elections.
In San Bernardino County, where Lake Arrowhead is located, the bed tax rate is currently 7%. This Tax is imposed on the occupancy of space or use of furnishings or other services or accommodations in a hotel, motel, or any other structure intended for occupancy by transients for dwelling, lodging, or sleeping purposes for a period of thirty (30) consecutive calendar days or less.
