Property description

[ 2015 Highest Rating plus Best Value for a Quality 6-7 Bedroom Home near Big Bear! ]

A River Paradise - 300' of private property on the Santa Ana River headwaters. Five acres with a beautiful year-round river. A relaxing private mountain sanctuary intended for guests that are looking for a unique retreat in the San Bernardino Mountains (rural Seven Oaks). A place for rest, rejuvenation and discovery. About 2 hours from Orange County or Los Angeles, yet worlds away. Though your surroundings are authentically rustic, there's no need to rough it: you'll find everything you need in the main house. A wonderful combination of furnishings, location, views and amenities.

Perched on a sunny mountainside, a pristine sanctuary to renew the spirit and refresh the senses. Wander and explore the lovely orchard and you’ll feel the splendor of simpler times. Meditate in the fresh mountain air and the beautiful ambiance of the river landscape. Relax in a comfortable handcrafted log home in the woods. You’ll find a wide selection of music, dozens of inviting books and a cozy, peaceful place just for you.

Handcrafted in 2007 this custom log home is comfortably appointed with antiques and modern amenities. The cabin is kept very clean. Upon entering the cabin, before you is the great room, which is surrounded by windows and decks that brighten the entire area and offer spectacular views. The dining area seats ten with additional seating at the breakfast bar for two. There is also a large picnic table on the deck for 10+. The kitchen island is centrally located in the house with vaulted ceilings and lots of handcrafted character. A great place to enjoy cooking in an open floor plan to the living room and loft. The Master bedroom has a Queen bed and adjacent bathroom, the second bedroom has a full bed and 1/2 bath. The loft has a Queen bed. (Only the two upstairs bedrooms and loft are part of the log area.) Three downstairs bedrooms have 1 King, 1 CA King, and 1 Full bed - great for the extra guests. One additional large bathroom downstairs. (New: Optional 7th bedroom for large groups over 13 guests. 2 queen beds plus extra bathroom, 800 sq ft. add $100 per night.)

There are over 800 sq. ft. of deck wrapped with inspiring mountain views. There is a 25 foot tree swing for the kids. Bob crane and Hootie the owl fly by often.

Best Location on this River!
The Santa Ana River upper headwaters of the river in the San Bernardino Mountains still retain a free flowing character and outstanding natural values. The upper headwaters, including its sparkling waters, scenic verdant meadows, rich riparian habitat, and thick forests of pine, fir, and oak offer an outdoor recreation mecca for hikers, bicyclists and fishermen. Perfect place to reconnect with family and friends in a green and pristine mountain wilderness. Come and surround yourself with the natural beauty and privacy of a wooded landscape.

Give yourself time for writing and hiking, painting and reading and stargazing in this peaceful sanctuary. Sit back and take delight in the breath-taking view from the deck as the sun sets and listen to the soothing sounds of nature. Birdwatchers often spot owls, herons, ducks, woodpeckers, hawks and quail.

This is a quality rental for families, perfect for family reunions and retreats.
RESTRICTIONS: We only rent to responsible people. It’s NOT a party house. No smoking, no fires, no firearms, no pets, no boomboxes. Please respect our neighbors, NO music or noise outdoors after 9 pm. No activities that would prevent our neighbors’ ability to enjoy their residences peacefully - sorry, no weddings or large events. River access is limited to 300' of river on our property only. Please do not trespass on the neighbors property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Originally from the lake country of northern Minnesota. Robert hand-scribed this fabulous home and all the amazing details. Robert likes to tinker and invent. Anna enjoys landscaping this five acre canvas. Their hospitality experience included owning a bed and breakfast in New Zealand. The log house shares this five acre property with the owner’s cabin - 300' away from the house. We respect your privacy, but if you need anything we can assist immediately. We are very interested in making sure your stay is comfortable.

Why the Owner Chose Angelus Oaks:
We handcrafted this unique log home ourselves, with much attention to detail. Located in a beautiful green wilderness, the Santa Ana River is unique for So. California - green and pristine. Love the apple blossoms and yucca in the Spring. Bird watching includes herons, owls, quail and hawks. Stars are a lot brighter out here. We encourage our guests to learn about our region's rich history, encouraging stewardship of this rich and unique riparian environment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private gate, 1/2 mile to the cabin. Only ten neighbors, all homes are on 5 acres surrounded by 30+ miles of beautiful national forest. This is not crowded like Big Bear. Fabulous views.
