Private Homes cabin description

Located within two to three blocks to the center of The Village and just a five-minute drive to the Snow Summit Ski Lifts. Everything you will need is within close proximity once you land at this resort-like vacation rental. In the summer you can swim, boat, fish and sight-see from your own backyard. In the winter you can go skiing (alpine or cross-country), snowboarding, sledding/tubing and enjoy the beautiful snow. This is lakefront at a fraction of the cost of renting lakefront.

This beautiful lakefront condo is one of three units in a triplex. It was built in 1977 and the given name of the complex is: Lake Chalets. The name of our unit is: Lakefront Retreat. There are two buildings on the lot. The 1st building facing the street has garages and a unit above. The rear building has two units. Our unit is the top floor of the rear building, which has no shared walls and a huge deck with unobstructed lake views.

The two-story condo feels much more like a private home than a condo; there are no hallways to get lost in and it is very private. It has cathedral ceilings and tudor details. This does not feel like a condo or a triplex; it is much more private and feels like a cabin. The lot is over 9000 square feet sitting 'on' the lake. There is plenty of room for activities while waiting for your next boat ride/water ski, your next big catch, snow play or simply watching the boats come and go from the nearby, adjacent marina.

Bedding Configuration: The master BR has a queen-size platform bed featuring a down comforter with duvet plus down pillows with high thread count linens. The master features its own large closet with remote color 20-inch TV with DirecTV and DVD player. It also has end tables with lamps, alarm clock and antique armoire for storage of all additional linens, towels and blankets.

The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with down comforter and duvet plus down pillows 'and' a matching bunk bed separated by an end table with lamp and alarm clock. A modest stackable washer/dryer is in the closet for easy storage and access.

The third and fourth bedrooms are dual lofts separated by its’ own bathroom on the second floor. Each loft is open, with no walls, and has two full beds sleeping four total in the loft area. By the textbook real estate definition, these are not actual bedrooms. There is a closet in the bathroom and a hanging rack in the hallway. Drawers for clothes should be kept under the bed; each bed has three drawers under it.

Living Room: 40-inch Flat Screen TV with DirecTV, wireless internet (airport and ethernet), mac computer and DVD player. Enjoy a crackling fire in the rock fireplace on our comfortable ultra suede sectional couch.

Deck: Just off the Kitchen sits the Deck, that includes views of tall pine trees and clear skies for stargazing or snowfall. Enjoy the sunset from the sit-down views, while melting away the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Backyard: Oversized and huge, the backyard has room for any outdoor activity you can think of including, in the winter, making snow angels in the snow-covered backyard which lies just a few steps down from your own shared dock.

Kitchen: Fully-equipped kitchen with travertine floors, dishes and settings for 12 persons, and all appliances - oven/range for big meals, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker and a steak knife set for your steak dinners. With amazing views of the lake through the sliding windows above the sink, and all kitchen utensils, pots and pans - you'll be hard pressed to find a better-stocked kitchen.

                This place was exactly as advertised and better. The views were beautiful and location was perfect. We fit very comfortably in the place and loved the dining area. I think its the greatest value in big bear.

                We had a great time at the cabin. It well well-apointed and had everything we needed. The cabin was a good size for 4 adults and 2 children. The kitchen table was perfect for family dinners. It was great to be right on the lake and the view was fantastic. For dog owners, it should be noted that the yard is not completely fenced in. It was not listed that way but I thought it was based on previous reviews. Nevertheless, that did not impact our stay. We would come back again.

                We spent a wonderful weekend and this condo had everything we needed. There were five adults and three children in our group and we had plenty of space. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen is very well-furnished with pots, pans, plates, utensils. The eating area held our entire group. Some really nice extras included a high-chair for the 2 year old as well as a gate to put across the bottom of the stairs to prevent him from climbing. The location is great: walking distance to the village and an easy drive to markets and snow areas. Would rent again if we return to Big Bear.

                My family and I had a wonderful time in a Big Bear, with many thanks to Kari for providing us with a perfect place to stay. The house had literally everything we could possibly need, and Kari worked with us last minute to get us in quickly. We loved the view of the lake and couldn't possibly ask for a better location. The home is beautifully decorated and was perfect for our mid-week getaway. I would highly recommend this home to my friends and look forward to returning with my family in the future!

                As soon as we walked in the door. My kids, my husband, and I were extremely surprised how big and beautiful the cabin was. The view was absolutely gorgeous day and night. I had coffee every morning on deck looking at the huge view of the lake. My husband fished every morning and night time on the boat dock. We will definitely make this a yearly vacation and we'll bring our boat next time :)

                Wonderful view and location - just a short walk to the marina and Big Bear village. The inside of the home is rustic cabin like with high open beam ceilings, the lake views from the deck and interior are awesome - due to all the lakefront sliders and glass windows. Beds were comfortable as well. A very wonderful stay for us and a few friends.

                Wow, what a great place! Waterfront, huge yard for kids to play in, fishing, walking distance to the village, this place has it all. The huge deck has a spectacular view of the lake that will make you just plop down in a chair and stare at the scenery for hours...even at night. Now, the item that really made my trip AWESOME is the Weber charcoal BBQ on the deck. I've been grilling with gas for last 10 years so I was a little worried that I may have lost my touch when it comes to charcoal grilling but, after tasting my lemon, olive oil, and oregano rib-eyes, I knew that a charcoal grill is in my near future. (I did swing by OSH on the way home to pick one up but OSH was having a sale and they were all out of that model...unbelievable. They were nice enough to give me a rain check.) Anywho, the condo was so nice, my kids didn't want to leave and made me promise to bring them back to THIS unit. My wife raved about it as well and she's a tough critic. And that my friends was all gravy.
