Private Homes cabin description

This home is for the discriminating vacationer only. It has everything and more and it's all new. We just finished a five month construction. Inside you will find gorgeous 14 foot vaulted tongue and groove ceilings. Huge, beautiful great room done with a large group in mind. The kitchen is simply to die for. All stainless appliances which include refrigerator with ice maker, quiet dishwasher, microwave and five burner stove. Nothing was overlooked. Massive island with seating and quartz counter tops and the prettiest pendant lights you've ever seen. Cooks won't want to leave and non-cooks will learn how to cook. The living room boasts a lovely slate corner gas fireplace. Perfect for those cool fall and winter evenings. Views right out to the lake, deck and dock. It also has a new queen size sofa sleeper for two. Brand new dining room table with elegant distressed finish that seats eight.
New Olhausen pool table and poker table, too.
We have three bedrooms in the main house. The master bedroom has a serene color palette and cozy queen size bed, TV, soft new carpet, walk in closet and private bathroom. The bath is done in cool Carrera marble, travertine and glass tiles. Dual sinks and stand up shower. Bedroom two also continues the relaxing color scheme, new carpet and queen bed with TV and private entrance to the second bathroom. Bedroom three is an excellent choice for the kids. It boasts two queen size beds and TV. Sleeps four easily. Our second bathroom is modern and new. Colors reminiscent of the placid lake water. Blue hues to soothe you on your vacation. There is a tub for soaking if you like. The main house sleeps ten in comfort. The fourth bedroom is located in the detached apartment above the garage. It has a queen size bed and bathroom. The apartment is an excellent choice for guests of different ages. Give grandpa and grandma their own space. It has a living room and kitchen, too. Teenagers will love it as well. They can feel like they are on their own. The living room has a big futon for two more to sleep. The house and apartment combined will easily accommodate fourteen.

Laundry room is available with lots of space to hang your coats and store your boarding gear or whatever you have.
Enjoy the expansive lake views from the large wood deck surrounding this lakefront cabin. Walk to the village or Big Bear Marina. You can launch you boat there. Plenty of parking in our huge driveway. You can park your boat trailer, too. Fish or swim from the yard or just sit and look at the beautiful lake and mountain views. Gas BBQ ready to cook your catch. Relax in the huge, hot spa over looking the lake. Pet friendly, too.

Very clean and family friendly home. The location cannot be beat. This home is true lake front (nothing in between the house and lake except the yard). It is considered in the Village which means you can walk everywhere. No worries about drinking and driving. There so many shops and restaurants you won't be able to go to all of them. The bowling barn is right near us too. Excellent for teens who get bored easily they can walk to the movies, bowling or arcade.

We can accommodate 14 people. The main house is 3 bedrooms and 2 baths for up to 10. All on one floor. Included also is a separate detached apartment on the same lot for an extra bedroom, bath and full kitchen for 4 more people. The apartment is up stairs above the garage and can not be accessed from the house. Great for groups of different ages. Gives grandparents or teens their own private area.

We have another nearby mountain property, please see VRBO 198546, and also two Carlsbad beach properties, see VRBO 288653 and 202785. We have a vacation for you whether it's skiing, boating or just trying to get away. Our home is lovingly cared for and we own and manage ourselves. Call me with any questions. Must be 25 years old to rent ID required to rent this home.

                            My friends and I just spent the weekend at this great house to celebrate a 30th birthday. The house is very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect. You can walk to many different restraunts and shops in the village. We didn't use our cars the whole weekend. The owners were available through email if needed which was nice. They were also very thoughtful, they sent a lovely flower arrangement to the birthday girl. Would love to vacation here again in the summer

                            Sometimes the pictures of a house don't really tell the story, for better or for worse. The pictures here were spot on and everything was just as advertised here. This was place was phenomenal! The living/kitchen/dining area was where we spent most of our time. We utilized the poker table, pool table and had March Madness games on the whole time. The idea of being able to walk through the back sliding doors onto your own deck and yard that leads to a private beach with a dock, amazing! The view of the lake and mountains were breathtaking. The bedrooms were comfortable size wise and everything was spotless when we showed up. There are no questions to whether or not my friends and I would stay here again. If anything, we'd bring more fishing gear next time and just set up shop in our own private beach area. If you are looking for a really nice house that is lake front and also really close to shops and the town, look no further.

                            I have to say that the rental was as advertised and much much more. We enjoyed the new kitchen and multiple amenities (fireplace, pool table, hot tub).......I had a question for the owners and not only did they respond immediately but they were very nice ........ I would recommend this property to anyone ....... We are actually booking it again in the summer for our annual family reunion.....

                            This was my birthday weekend and we showed up with 2 dogs, 9 adults and 5 kids ranging from the age of 3-12. It was roomy enough for all of us and the back yard facing the lake was awesome! It was a great central location to everything. The only suggestion I can come up with are more cooking items in kitchen and more comfortable seating in the living room. The house was very clean and in great location. Our families created terrific memories and would love to come back and we will bring the kids fishing poles next time! Thanks Darla!

                            We spent New Years here and it was wonderful. You are walking distance to the village and just a 5 minute drive to the ski areas. The house is on the lake and breathtaking. Everything in the house is very modern and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with nice amenities and all the basics you need but forget to bring! It was a pleasure dealing with the owners/prop mgmt and they were very responsive and helpful as questions came up. I would love to return during the summer to enjoy the lake while staying here. The view from the house and front yard was so beautiful it even inspired a marriage proposal!

                            This home is absolutely wonderful! The open floor plan is absolutely the best for large groups. The fabulous kitchen allows everyone to hang out while shooting a game of pool or how about a game of poker! Whatever you feel it's in this home! We spent valuable time with our grown kids and couldn't be happier with our choice of home ~ it was amazing! The kids loved it! The location was perfect! Not far from the mountain, walk to the village and on the lake - what could be better! The deck was very useful and the next level down close to the beach was something fun to explore. You can't get in the way of others. Our little Jack Russell, Joey, had fun, too! The spa was perfect especially under the full moon. Darla was excellent with communication and the directions were specific. We definitely will return and hope to make it an annual event with our grown children. As a Mom, there isn't anything better than having your family altogether, smiling, having fun, playing games and cooking together! Thank you for such a fabulous home!

                            Our stay at this house was wonderful. The home is beautiful, and easily accommodated the three families that went. The kitchen is huge, and the great room is perfect for being together for meals, cards, or pool.

                            This house has a great location and layout! Perfect for a big family, the kitchen is open to the dining, living, and recreational areas. The kitchen is also nicely remodeled. The three bedrooms in the main house are well appointed and simple. I would say, more fresh linens and blankets would have been nice. The separate apartment over the garage could use a little sprucing up as well. It was a little dingy and outdated. But other than those minor details and driving all the garbage 2 miles away, it was a great property!

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We are licensed real estate professionals and own many full time and vacation rentals. Dave is an eye doctor. I am administrator of the 2 large preschools we own in San Diego. Our children are both in college and grew up learning to ski and snowboard in Big Bear and surf in Carlsbad. We take pride in our homes and use them oursevles. We have been offering vacation rentals since 1995. Call us for a personal, wonderful vacation.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          We have always wanted to be on the lake in Big Bear and finally got the opportunity.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          I think the best thing about this home is it's unique location. There are very few homes that are on the lake and in the Village of Big Bear. The street we are on is very small and tucked away not many people even know it's there. So if you want to have a drink in the Village you can safely walk there and back. The private dock is awesome! We bring our boat and jet skis and jump on for a ride anytime we want. We often cruise around for lunch and dock at B's BBQ. We eat there shoot some pool and just relax. During the Jazz Festival we parked our boat right next to the stage and listened to the great music for free. There is nothing like being on Big Bear Lake in the summer. If you are considering a non-lakefront home you really are missing out. You only vacation a few times a year. My philosophy is spend a little more and enjoy! You only live once.
