A Bear for all Seasons! 11/20/2009

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This bear adventure brought the blue-eyed bear to beautiful Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California! Situated right on Big Bear Lake’s serene Boulder Bay with its very own private dock, this magnificent 4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home had everything a bear needed for year round fun.

The two-level chalet style home has two decks that look out on to the crystal waters of Boulder Bay on Big Bear Lake. Inside, you’ll find two stone fireplaces, large sunken living room, flat Screen TVs, a fully equipped kitchen, and dining room. All the beds are cozy and comfortable and there are even two additional sleeping lofts for large family or group gatherings. The mountain décor brings a warm touch of home which is felt in each and every room. The homemade quilts encourage you to snuggle up around the fireplace. Play games at the large dining room table, or soak in the two-person Jacuzzi off the upper deck under the stars. The views from nearly every room are spectacular!

Local activities are endless in any season. The owners provide canoes, kayaks and a pontoon boat for use on the lake. You can take a refreshing swim or try your hand at fishing. Right at your door, there are mountain biking and hiking trails so you can explore the natural flora and fauna. The “village” is just down the road for shopping, strolling and night life. For winter time visits, there are skiing and snowboarding resorts within a very short drive. Also, there’s an Alpine slide and snow play areas nearby for the kids!

Just a quick two hour drive from San Diego or an hour from Orange County or Los Angeles, Big Bear is truly the perfect vacation destination. During my stay, we had all the conveniences for me to feel right at home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our family is not photogenic. Everyone in our family has contributed something to the Boulder Bay Chalet to make it comfortable, cozy and relazing. The cleaning staff works hard to keep the Chalet clean and in the proper order so you can find everything you need. They must be doing something right because they get sizable tips frequently. We look at the Boulder Bay Chalet as a service for those in need of a vacation. If you can't find something to do there, you are not looking.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder Bay:
This warm and wonderful spot on the lake makes you relax even if you want to work. Healthy people are happy people. Relaxation is an essential part of good health

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have stocked this home with everything we can think of to make your stay comfy, cozy and easy. Every kitchen toy we could buy, kitchen settings in paper, beautiful Corelle, China and Crystal for those weddings and anniversaries. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and neat. The fireplace even has a remote control so you can control the temperature of the house from any room. Even bed wetters can relax with the 6 bedwetter pads on site. Pets are welcome but we ask that you clean up their dropping and bring 3 extra towels per animal to dry them after they romp in the water and snow. We know you will enjoy your stay at the Boulder Bay Chalet.
