Boulder Bay cabin description

This is in one of the most desirable areas in our wonderful valley of Big Bear Lake. Boulder Bay is situated in a quiet, secluded, wind protected area of the valley where wake-boarders and water skiers enjoy the calmer waters of our bay. Sitting on either of our decks provides an unparalleled view of the bay and lake that will calm even the most stressed out traveler. In winter enjoy sledding, tubing or tobogganing next to the cabin or enjoy a quit evening next to the air-tight stove, set into a natural Big Bear rock fireplace. Another air-tight stove is provided in the cozy downstairs game room along with cable TV. We provide two refrigerators, one on the main floor and the other in the den, closer to the water and lower deck. There is a large dock provided for your enjoyment to sunbath, fish or park your boat in the provided slip available. After a long day skiing, fishing or lounging in the sun, we provide a propane barbeque for those unforgettable evening meals that memories are made from. After dinner, take a stroll along our quite street or snuggle up on the upper deck to view the magnificent starry nights that Big Bear is known for. Our knotty pine, three story home with skylights has all the amenities necessary for an enjoyable, inclusive family vacation that will stay with you until you come up again for another mountain fix at our retreat.

Within a short walking distance, there is a trail head to one of the most spectacular and popular hiking destinations in the valley. Castle Rock is a destination for rock climbers and day hikers alike. The valley view from the top of the rock is unbelievable. So, don’t forget your camera to remember your adventure. For a more strenuous workout this trail leads deeper into the heart of the forest where you will encounter Bluff Lake, a beautiful picnic spot.

Bring your mountain bikes, as there are mountain trails and dirt roads that are accessible from the cabin or if you prefer, by Snow Summit sky chair, that takes you and your bike to the top of the mountain ridges that line the Big Bear valley area. Or, just ride around the lake for a great day outing, full of spectacular lake and mountain views.

At certain times of the year, Big Bear Lake is known for its’ Bald Eagle nesting during the late winter months of January, February and into early spring. They like to hang out in our bay and can be occasionally seen in some of the higher pine trees or playing on the rocks of Boulder Bay.

Enjoy local snow-boarding/skiing that is only a short 10 minute drive away to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain resorts. You could stay closer, but would miss the peaceful tranquility of the “Cove.”

Restaurants and shopping are also a short drive away in the village, where you will find fine dinning and unique shops to browse. Boulder Bay market is a short walk or drive away from the cabin for those quick needs.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1959

              About the owner: My wife and I first met in Big Bear Lake, Boulder Bay, when we were six years old. My parents and hers owned adjacent cabins. We were also married in Big Bear, in 1997, so maintaining a family home property in Big Bear seemed second nature. We hope you will enjoy the mountain as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Boulder Bay:
              Having six kids of our own who board, water ski & snow ski, mountain activities are bred into both of us. This cabin is a family weekend home that has been in our family for over 50 years.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Being next to the water, this is an ideal spot for aquatic activities, such as ski-doing, boating, fishing, sailing and swimming. Local hiking to castle rock is a very short walk. The cabin is knotty pine with cozy rooms to share that romantic evening with. Or spend time on the deck barbequing and watching the lake activities. Winter sports include local sledding or with a short drive, boarding at Snow Summit. Its location at Boulder Bay instills that 'in the woods' feeling being on the mountain is known for.
