Big Bear City cabin description

From the sensual experience of the softly warmed floor heating to the spruce covered cathedral ceiling, the new masterfully designed cabin will give you a feeling of never wanting to leave. Whether walking across the 'old world' style paved patio or kicking back in the relaxing sitting area on the front covered porch, you are going to love this place.

Watch the glowing sunset filter through the gigantic pine trees, take a hike through the juniper forest surrounding the new cabin, all of you are going to enjoy every moment of your visit. Soak up the sun on the south facing patio and check out the huge granite boulders while you barbeque steaks on the gas grill. Share a glass of wine with your best friends while enjoying unheard of peace, quiet and relaxation, right here close to Big Bear Lake in Southern California.


We know it is hard to believe this kind of magic still exists here near Big Bear Lake in Southern California. Listen and all you can hear is the wind moving through those incredible smelling pine trees. Sled down the hills in the winter. Do like many of our guests... hike down the pine needle covered trails with your lover in the summer, take romantic moonlit snowshoe walks with them in the winter, and as time passes share those same trails with your kids in this beautiful cabin, everything is right about this little piece of heaven we have to offer you.

Open the eight foot tall arched front door and take in the breathtaking downstairs great room with high vaulted ceilings and huge picture windows framing in an incredible view. Snuggle up in the luxurious down filled leather sectional while watching the flames dance in the soft warmth of the soapstone stove.

The gourmet kitchen has a huge granite island with built in cook top and second sink that will delight even the most discriminating chef. A large side-by-side refrigerator, built in oven, microwave, and dishwasher rounded out by the granite counter tops and oak cabinets making this kitchen beautiful and very functional for cooking for a large group.

There are two bedrooms downstairs - one with four poster canopy king bed, the other with a four poster queen. An incredible bathroom awaits your delight with a huge elegant travertine shower & frameless glass surround. Double shower heads and double sinks make for the best bath.

Upstairs you will enjoy a private master suite with king bed, two opening skylights and an antique claw foot tub. The master bath has the same incredible design as the downstairs bath. An open loft area has accommodations for four more guests. Every bedroom has a flat screen TV with DVD player. In addition, a huge flat screen TV/DVD player is located in the living room area.

Close enough to Big Bear Lake to enjoy restaurants and activities - yet far enough away to feel like you are in a whole different world - away from the hustle and bustle of life! Don't miss the virtual tour at the youtube link below!

              This cabin is located on 2.5 acres of its own land on our private 55 acre Cienaga Creek Ranch - no other buildings within sight! It is in a very private and secluded setting, with extraordinarily beautiful views of the woods.

              Spring and Verizon offer excellent cell coverage.

              During the winter months, snowshoe, snow play and sledding right from your door.

              Golf: Bear Mountain Golf Course - 15 miles away

              Ski: Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Ski Resorts are just 15 miles from Cienaga Creek Ranch.

              During the winter months you must carry chains for your vehicle (including 4WD). We clear our roads, however, you must be prepared to chain up your vehicle to reach the home if you do not have 4WD.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1991

              About: We both grew up in Orange County, Southern California, and moved to San Bernardino in 1981. Desiring our sons to grow up with some space around them, we purchased the ranch near Big Bear Lake in 1991 when our boys were 6, 4, 2 and 2 months old. We lived in the 500 sf cottage that is now called Ironwood Lodge - the only building on the ranch. The six of us lived in the cottage (yes, we were a bit crazy!!) while we built what is now the main house - called Granite Vista. It took us 3 years before it was completed enough for us to move in. We did the majority of building ourselves, with help from family and friends. After moving in to the 'big' house, Ironwood sat empty for a few years. With the encouragement of some friends who owned a lodge in town, we remodeled it and began renting it out. Our guests liked it so much that we built three more - Mountain Sunset, Hunter's Lodge and Wild Rose - ready for New Year's 2000. A few years later we acquired the Kopitch Cottage (built by the Kopitch family) that sat on 10 acres bordering our original 40 acres…. then a few years later we built Juniper Ridge - 2000 sf, 3 bedroom 2 bath family cabin. We recently remodeled our home to have available for large groups. Now that the boys are grown, we love to travel and spend several months every year exploring other countries on our motorcycle - BMW 1200 GS. We recently spent 5 months in Central America and 2 months in Thailand. Though we love traveling, there is no place like home!

              Why Big Bear City:
              Our ranch is only 2 hours from Los Angeles, but in an area where there are no utilities. This fact allowed us to purchase acreage at a reasonable cost. With advances in technology, solar power has become more affordable. Every cottage and home on our ranch is run on solar power! Far from utility lines, yet only 15 minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, skiing and the lake, we feel like our ranch is in an ideal location.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Our ranch is forested with tall pines, huge junipers, fir and lodge pole pines. To hike through the forest on the trails on and around our ranch is one of our favorite past times. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses our ranch. At an elevation of 8200, the sky is blue and the stars are amazing. The peace and quiet is so restful.
