Green Valley Lake cabin description

It's winter and what better way to spend the New Year then in the snow! That's right, we have about 2 feet of snow in front of our cabins right now. Green Valley Lake gets more snow then anywhere else in Southern California. More than Big Bear, More than Wrightwood. At 7200' our cabins are well above Big Bear cabins and you will enjoy the peace and solitude of the mountains, not the hustle and bustle of tourists. Call us for last minute reservations.

Rustic but ready this Creekside Retreat is a mountain oasis in the middle of the Southern California Desert. 7200 feet above the smog and heat, a person can breath fresh air and temps almost never get much above 80 degrees. GVL is less than 30 minutes from Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead. Green Valley Lake offers peace and tranquility with world class 4x4 trails, fine trout fishing, skiing/snowboarding, mountain biking and hiking just minutes away. Walk down to the beach to take a swim, relax by our Barbeque as the creek gurgles past, take in a movie from one of Direct TV's 200 plus channels, or just kickback with a book in front of the fireplace. Do you want to get away? This is the place.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: My wife and I own several full time Rentals in the San Bernadino Mtns. This is our first 'weekend' rental. We don't rent this cabin full time because we want to share this place with our family, friends and the general public. This cabin is located in a special mountain oasis

                  Why the Owner Chose Green Valley Lake:
                  We love the mountains and this area is one of the most beautiful areas in Southern California.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  I love to 4x4, hike, fish and ski and all of these activities are less than 10 minutes away.
