Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We wanted to give our young children an opportunity to experience the seasonal changes throughout the year. Our work schedules did not allow much time for travel experiences, we needed to keep to something that wouldn't require more than a couple of hours drive as we were looking to spend more of our time relaxing rather than traveling to the destination. Also important was a destination that we could enjoy and expose our children to a variety of activities including seasonal changes, especially snow. Big Bear won our hearts, it's the perfect place whether you are looking for activities to do or just relax and enjoy. An awesome Lake and awesome Slopes, there aren't many areas that offer such diversity and beauty in Southern California. We are so fortunate to have our home in Big Bear and are happy to allow other families to share, experience, and make your own special memories as we have! We know you will love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Boulder Bay:
Before seeing the property we say the name of the street, Chipmunk. It struck us so that we hoped we would find the perfect cabin on the street. As luck would have it we found this wonderful cabin. It's exterior charm and the lay of the land really heightened our interest. One of the nice attributes is that the properties that are technically across the street are situated such that you really don't see them from the kitchen window because across the street properties are located on top of the hill, which makes it nice and lends itself to more of the feeling of nature. This cabin had all the space we wanted, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. A bonus was that it also had a seperate den in addition to the livingroom. And, we love to burn a fire in the fireplace, this property has two! We also loved that we can see the lake from many of the rooms in the home as it is only 1 street up from the lake. The yard has many options, the front yard is a nice place for the kids to play in the snow and the south side of the home had the perfect place for us to put in a custome hot tub. Its larger capacity is sized to fit the spot just right. The north side of the property is the most awesome place in the winter as it turns into its own 'snow play' hill. No need to pay for such fun at the commercial resorts, save your money, the kids will have fun all day, our kids look forward to it every year! The neighborhood terrain is perfect to allow young children to ride their bicycles and is great for taking morning or evening walks, easy enough for seniors to enjoy as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We were told that the area of Boulder Bay tends to get more snowfall than other areas of Big Bear. For us, you didn't need to tell us twice, we definitely wanted to make sure our home would have snow when the potential was there. We are very happy we did! It's quiet location is also wonderful since it is far enough from the main boulevard that takes you to all the fun activities in Big Bear yet close enough to get you where you want to go with convenience. It's close proximity (1 street up) to Pleasure Point Marina makes launching our boat or renting any number of boats and water craft extremely convenient. The marina also offers fishing licenses, charter fishing excursions and a functional cable park. It's also walking distance to the newest Big Bear waterfront park, Boulder Bay Park, great for shore fishing, launching your canoe or kayak or just enjoying the beauty that surrounds. Getting to the slopes of Big Bear takes only minutes whether you are skiing the slopes of Snow Summit or boarding the slopes of Bear Mountain.
