Are you trying to find a big place for your whole family? Don't you and everyone else just want their own bed at the end of the night to sleep in? How about just relaxing inside the cabin with a nice sofa, flat screen TVs in all the room and a game room with pool table, foosball table, and air hockey?
This is a beautiful 3 story cabin with mountain view; perfect for friends and family. It is close to the ski slope, Bear Mountain (5 min drive) while far enough where it's quite and located at a cue-de-sac. It is good for kids and the cabin is built on a slope where during winter, with enough snow, can sled down right next to the cabin.
This cabin comes with everything you might need. Here is a list of our amenities: * ALL LCD TVs (all have Netflix, Hulu, Prime for Movies & Shows) * Soak Jetted Tub (Not Jacuzzi. Only for 1 Person) * Game Room * Pool Table * DVD Player & Internet TV * High Speed Internet * 3 Big Beds & 4 Small Beds * 2 Decks Ski Slope/Mountain View (it's gorgeous) * 5 Minutes drive to ski slope (yes, we are close to the ski slopes) * Outdoor BBQ Grill * 2 Stone, Genuine Fireplaces * Mountain Col De Sac Privacy
Parking: 2-3 parking spaces. Additional 2 can be parked on the street (non-permitted during snow season).
Noise: This is a wood cabin built on a hillside. Over the years of soil expansion and contraction, with the age of the cabin, in certain section of the cabin, the floor makes squeeky noises when walked on. We tried to fix it as best as we can but still it makes squeeky noise on certain parts. If this is a concern to you, please factor this decision into booking this cabin.

The cabin is building on a cul-de-sac along a fairly long slope. During the winter time, past renters have taken advantage of that and bob-sled along the side of the cabin with their kids.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: This is Richard. This is our family cabin and I am the person in charge of making sure everything is good. We try to go up to the cabin every so often for us to relax and enjoy.
I personally try to go on as many mini vacations as possible with the help of different vacation sites offering short term rentals like this one.
I believe it's important to spend time away from the city and get away. The great thing about living in LA is that most vacation spots are within 2 hours drive.
My personal favorites around LA include Yosemite, Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez, Oceanside, Big Sur, and Big Bear.
Why the Owner Chose Bear Mountain: We decided to buy this property because we are looking for a big enough place that can sleep our family and our relatives/friends comfortably. This cabin is not the newest and needed (and still) some love, but for the location (close to ski, while tucked safely away for the little kids to play outside), the view (of the ski slope and mountain instead of other cabin's wall), and size worked out for us.
Couple years ago, we were able to see the lake from the cabin on the Patio; but now that trees have grown taller and bigger, it has blocked the lake view and we are somewhat disappointed with that. But the mountain view with the trees standing all and the sky behind, especially during sunset or early morning when the fog is rolling over the hills, it's just beautiful.
Since we got the cabin, we have been working on improving different aspect of the cabin: flooring, furnitures, TVs, internet, bathroom, kitchen, and other smaller items. We are not finished yet; in fact, having a cabin on the mountain is pretty much continual upkeep. In the meanwhile, we enjoy it best we can and we hope you'll enjoy the cabin as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: In order of uniqueness (to us!):
1. The view - open windows and open living room makes the view look even more amazing
2. The privacy - the cabin is on a cul-de-sac on top of it's own 'hill'
3. Close to everything - the ski slope/parking, lake, Vons, Starbucks, CVS, bars and restaurant is still very close
4. Multiple floors - those who want to sleep (top floor) can sleep comfortably and quietly while those who are still up (bottom floor) get to be loud
5. New jetted tub. We just put in a jetted soak tub. I know it's not a jacuzzi but after a day of hiking or snowboarding, you can relax and soak in this new tub with a bag of epsom salt.
6. I tried to make this cabin equipped with the latest: TV in each room, apple TV, digital alarm, high speed internet, and more.
