The farmhouse is easily accessible in winter with parking right in front.

The farmhouse is easily accessible in winter with parking right in front. A whimsical family of cows greet arriving guests to the farmhouse. Red, white and blue colors are found throughout the farmhouse. Warm up after a day on the mountain in front of the gas fireplace. It looks like a 50s rotary-dial phone, but this one works just like your cell. Picture yourself, family and friends preparing a dinner in this country kitchen! Washer/dryer is behind barn doors. Table holds 6; but kids prefer island seating It takes a number of photos to show the large farmhouse country kitchen. Original artwork in an old wood frame on custom wallpaper enhance the 2nd bath. A pedestal sink, period fixtures and authenic lamp reproductions add charm. A queen, oak sleigh bed in the master bedroom matches the wainscoting around it. The mirrored closet doors of the master bedroom seem to double the room's size. The upstairs bath between the bedrooms is great for long soaks or quick showers. The 2nd bedroom trundle hides two twin mattresses that come out at night. The 2nd bedroom offers plenty of shelf space plus a walk-in closet. Even the backyard storage shed has been renovated to resemble a farmhouse barn! Kids and pets love playing in the fenced backyard. From the upstairs deck, a sunset view adds color to the northern mountain range. The windmill next to the driveway is but one element that adds country charm. Signs of fall are found throughout the farmhouse this time of year. Pedal a bike from the farmhouse to the north shore paved path to enjoy this view Christmas is a special time of year in the farmhouse. There are touches of country charm whereever you look. The farmhouse is popular in the fall. Oktoberfest is within walking distance.

Big Bear City farmhouse description

Remember when you could rent a motel room for less than $100 a night? Well, that rate is even better in the Bear Country Farmhouse, a two-bedroom, two-bath property with a fully equipped kitchen in the heart of Big Bear. Only the nightly rate here is only $75 a night! The only other cost is a low $40 cleaning fee. That's right. Just $190 for a three day, two night weekend in this special retreat that will take you back to childhood memories with your grandparents.

This is no ordinary cabin. Smack dab in the middle of Big Bear is this charming farmhouse, complete with its own windmill and backyard barn. Now is the perfect time to go back to a simpler period in America when a weekend getaway didn't cost as much as a down payment on the family car! This one-of-a-kind farmhouse with its many amenities is central to the best Big Bear has to offer.

'What makes the farmhouse so special?' you may be asking. The barn-red and cottage-white farmhouse looks much as it would in the early 1900s. All floors are wide-plank pine, and the T&G ceilings are supported by massive wood beams. Care has been taken to keep today’s modern gadgets – the TVs, DVD players and appliances -- behind closed doors to maintain the look of an early American farmhouse.

In the large, eat-in kitchen, the cottage-white, bead-board wainscoting and barn-red walls surround a room filled with country charm. Farm antiques, such as an old milk storage container and early American utensils, add to the kitchen’s country look. There’s even a deep, double farmhouse sink! You also have the convenience of a washer/dryer in the kitchen, but since it isn't the ringer-type model your grandmother used, you’ll find it hidden behind the barn doors of the laundry closet.

As soon as the sun dips below the west end of the lake, falling temperatures quickly follow on the mountain. That’s when you will want to gather ‘round the gas fireplace in the living room that keeps the farmhouse toasty warm on chilly nights. There are additional wall heaters in both baths, as well as room heaters in both bedrooms. The linen closet is also filled with numerous blankets and quilts.

When it's time to tuck in the young ones, climb the pine staircase to the second floor where the two bedrooms are separated by a full bath. The master bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and armoire, complete with a TV and DVD unit. There’s also a spacious, mirrored closet. The second bedroom (fondly known as the Blue Bear Room) has a bead-board trundle bed with two twin mattresses that can be set up in a number of configurations. This bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to an observation deck with views of the Green, Gold and Eagle Mountain ranges that are particularly beautiful with the first covering of early spring growth.

Back downstairs, two more individuals can drift off to sleep watching the flickering flames of the fireplace from the queen sofa bed in the living room. There is a convenient bath just down the hall. That brings the total sleeping accommodations at the farmhouse to six.

For the night owls who don’t want the day to end, there’s a large screen television and DVD player with access to hundreds of movie and sports channels in the living room china cabinet. Wi-Fi is available, of course. You will want to tell distant friends and family of the perfect place you have discovered for future vacations in Big Bear!

Cease the opportunity to experience the Bear Country Farmhouse this weekend at this amazing rate. The first one to call 888-424-5211 is in for a special experience on the mountain.

You can walk to the east end of the lake, as well as a small community store, the best pizza place in all of Big Bear, and the weekly farmer's market at the corner of Division Drive and Big Bear Blvd. on Tuesdays from 8 to 1. You don't have to be a farmer to enjoy this popular local event that offers the freshest fruits and vegetables at the lowest prices in town, but you will feel like one during your time in the farmhouse! Go along with the fantasy and pretend you picked those fruits and vegetables from behind the farmhouse! ;-)...moreless

                    I'd simply say it was our best Big Bear experience ever! This cozy farmhouse & the owner David made the difference! We fell in love with this farmhouse as soon as we opened the front door. We spent most of our time staying in the house, rather than going anywhere else. You'll feel as comfortable as you are at home! Highly recommend to all.

                    We were two couples with little children and we loved this place. It was very clean and well cared for. The owner came to meet us with the key and was very friendly. The decor was charming and they home was fully stocked with everything we needed. The location was close to town and the lake with beautiful views of the mountains. We'd like to come back again.

                    David, the property owner, is the difference maker for the Farmhouse. He's attentive over email -- quick to respond and follow-up with a phone call -- and patient. He helped us book the Farmhouse last minute and still managed to make sure the Farmhouse was clean and cozy for our arrival. And, after we'd departed, he went above and beyond to help with a PayPal issue when promptly refunding our deposit. The Farmhouse makes a great home base for excursions around the lake. From the Farmhouse, it's easy to bike/walk to the marsh path and/or drive into Big Bear Village. And, being just a bit out of the village fray, it seems like a quiet getaway inside the cozy, quaint house. David, combined with the very reasonable fall rates offered, helps the Farmhouse be a low-stress, low-key, low-cost retreat.

                    My husband and I came up here for a couple nights to get away for our anniversary. The pictures of the farmhouse don't do it justice. It is so cute, cozy, and inviting. It is in a perfect location near the airport. It would be great in the winter because you don't have to drive up any of the smaller mountain roads. Also, David was so kind and made sure we had everything that we needed during our stay. Can't wait to stay here again!

                    My husband and I had a wonderful time at the farmhouse. David was so great to work with and he even recommend a great breakfast place! I'm looking forward to my next trip back to the farmhouse. Such a beautiful and well kept place. My husband & I got in late on a Friday night but David left lights on for us and even the fireplace was going when we got there! Very thoughtful.

                    My husband and I and our three small dogs enjoyed our stay at the Farmhouse in August 2013. By happy coincidence, there was an air show at the airport with vintage WW2 planes and we had a great view of the planes from the upstairs porch! The home itself has many great features and details including a big fully-stocked kitchen, laundry facility, and a dog-friendly fenced yard. David made us feel welcome and had everything ready for us early. We would recommend the Farmhouse to any couple or family visiting Big Bear!

                    I have stayed at this property twice (most recently for a week's stay Jan 29-Feb 5, 2012.) The owners are the most gracious hosts. They have such wonderful taste in decor (which is a refreshing change from many IKEA-furnished, personality-less cabins in the mountains.) They also personally maintain the properties, so they're on top of good housecleaning, damaged or missing items, etc. A coffeemaker broke during one of my stays, and they dropped a replacement off the very next day. This property is adjacent to the airport runway (which is not exactly busy and is not disruptive to your peaceful stay.) You're a couple blocks in from the main highway, and the airport traffic is so little that the neighborhood is actually quite quiet. The location is very convenient to both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit (very short drive.) One plus is that this house is on a flat road running parallel to the main highway. I've been here during a pretty heavy snow, and the road was plowed very quickly, long before many of the residential streets on the mountain. There are also only a few steps to get into the house and well-paved flat ground, so I would recommend this home for someone with some physical limitations like arthritis, bad knees, etc. (some mountain homes have three flights straight up!) You could get around this house on crutches, for example. The house is just lovely, exceeding any expectations I would have had for the price and level of service I received. I've brought two guests here who both enjoyed their stay, too. I hope to be back next winter! P.S. I recommend dinner at Madlon's or the Sweet Basil Bistro. Reservations recommended for both.

                    Have no hesitations about this house for your next trip to Big Bear. Darling house, and obviously the price is right! Owner is great and not intrusive at all. He even let us stay as late as we wanted on Sunday (one of my pet peeves is leaving at 11am - especially when you're only going for two nights - it's such a rip off!). I would definitely stay here again!!!

                    We enjoyed our stay at this cute farmhouse. Lots of personality and charming. We really felt as though we were in a farm house. Great location and close to all attractions and restaurants. easy to walk and bike and run to all. The owner was very helpful and available. We were there to relax for a couple of days and enjoy the trails and we did both. Look forward to out next visit.

                    My girlfriend and I stayed at David's Farmhouse in Big Bear to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, and it was a blast. The farmhouse was beautiful and so was big bear. I would and will recommend the farmhouse to anyone looking for a pleasant, quiet getaway.
