Boulder Bay house description
This beautifully decorated home with its spectacular views is unlike any other in Big Bear Lake. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac on Inspiration Point at the far reaches of Boulder Bay, the views are breathtaking from every direction. Expect an 'over the top' experience when staying in this home. The 4,400 sq. ft. of unique living space offers a cozy and comfortable cabin feeling. The beautiful full round hand peeled logs, the hardwood floors, granite counter tops and comfortable furniture boasts a true mountain home experience. The outdoor patio with fireplace is where you will probably spend much of your time enjoying the view and relaxing as you listen to the mountain sounds next to a crackling fire. The lower patio is a perfect place to relax in an Adirondack chair with your feet up as you watch the 'Pirate Ship' or 'Big Bear Queen' tour boats go by -- have your camera ready! If you are a sun worshiper, you'll enjoy the 3rd patio lakeside, or better yet, go ahead and walk out onto the dock to be even closer to all of the lake action -- fishing, boating, boarding, tubing, kayaking and swimming. As evening approaches, have your camera ready again because you will see some of the most beautiful sunsets ever.
Visit The Village with all of its unique shops and quaint restaurants. Take advantage of countless hiking and biking trails and other attractions. Whatever you like, we are sure you will make wonderful memories at 'The Grand on Inspiration Point' in Big Bear Lake -- Southern California's only Four Season getaway.

My husband and I , along with 6 of our friends just returned yesterday from our 50th birthday celebration at The Grand. I cannot begin to describe how perfect this entire experience was. Barb, the owner is a wonderful and responsive lady who was always available for any questions I had. There were zero issues with the property. It is 100% perfectly renovates and the rooms are very comfortable and decorated so nicely. But the one overwhelming quality of this gorgeous home is the spectacular view! Breath taking. We feel so blessed that we chose this property for our celebration. Although it was a little bit more money than a few others we considered, we chose this home because of the great reviews, the location, and finally when I first spoke with Barb, she was so friendly and willing to give us whatever clarifications we needed. I sincerely hope that we will be able to stay here again. Worth every dime.

This was our second summer staying at The Grand. Our only regret was not staying longer! We were a group of 4 adults and 6 kids, ages ranging from 4 to 20. Not only is the home beautiful, warm and well appointed...the location is perfect. Views from every window and multiple decks to enjoy...whether hanging out with the family or sneaking off to the deck off the master for some solitude and a good book! We enjoyed biking, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, fishing with the kids off the dock, (caught their very first fish), rented a pontoon boat as well as a ski boat. We played pool and ping pong, enjoyed sunset margaritas by the water, and star gazing at night. Barb, the owner, is very nice, responsive and great to work with. You can tell that she takes great pride in her home. We are looking forward to coming back to The Grand next summer.

A Memorable Family Trip
A Memorable Family Trip
My wife and I sought out a special place this summer to take our four kids (ages 7 to 21) and their grandparents (ages 78 and 80) and certainly found it at The Grand. While we took full advantage of the full menu of activities available around Big Bear Lake (e.g., road & mountain biking, kayaking, Boulder Bay, water & toboggan slides, etc.), the main attraction was unquestionably the home. As well constructed and appointed as any home you'll find on VRBO or elsewhere to rent, the views of the lake from multiple decks and the sunsets we enjoyed from the lower deck over wine and appetizers each evening of our 7-night stay made for a truly remarkable experience. No sooner had we begun our drive back to Los Angeles than had we already begun plotting next year's return trip.

You can not beat the views in this incredible home! They are absolutely stunning. The indoor space is beautifully appointed and perfect for vacationing with family and friends. We had a fantastic time and hope to return. Barb, the owner, is easy to work with and she was quick to return our deposit. For young children, the top outdoor deck is glassed in and safe. They've thought of everything. This property is breathtaking and provides the space to make memories with those you love with unbelievable lake views everywhere you turn. It is just peaceful. We loved it.

What a Beautiful Home and Experience

My boyfriend and I spent the week up there with our family and to celebrate my fathers 70th birthday. We had such a wonderful time at this beautiful and we would recommend to anyone looking at this house to experience for yourselves. As soon as we walked in we couldn't believe this home was a rental. We felt as though we lived there and it was our house. The warmth and feel of this home is beyond words.

We picked a weekend of record high temps in San Diego and it was picture perfect in Big Bear. The house is gorgeous and better than described. We left only to buy food and to be on the lake with the pontoon we rented. Big designer house with an inviting cabin feel and a view that is beyond stunning. Spotless, comfortable and cozy. We had an amazing time!

This house is absolutely gorgeous! Four of us had a wonderful time in this wonderful home. The view has to be the best on the lake. We sat in the large family room in front of the fireplace just staring up at the high ceilings and huge logs. Went hiking one day but also liked just walking the neighborhood. We found the house to have everything that we needed and more! This House is AMAZING!

Owner response: Thank You for your comments. We built this home 13 years ago and never get tired of it. We also still find it amazing.
My family just spent 4 nights in this beautiful house. The location is unbeatable and my 3.5 year old loved going down to the dock and fishing with daddy. He caught his first fish (well not really on his own!) and gave it a kiss and threw it back in. He said the fish tasted "so yummy". Great memories and definitely a home we will return to. So spacious and immaculately kept.

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful time at this gorgeous rental home. The photos do not begin to do it justice. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The owners were very responsive to our questions and needs throughout our stay. The kids loved fishing off of the private dock, soaking in the jacuzzi, and playing pool and ping pong in the evening. The adults appreciated the beautiful decor and especially enjoyed the outdoor patio and fireplace. We are hoping to return in the near future and would highly recommend this exceptional rental property to anyone wanting to vacation at Big Bear Lake.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder Bay:
We have visited Big Bear for years with our children, family and friends, both during the summer and winter, and fell in love with everything it has to offer. We built our log home on Inspiration Point in 1999 and are enjoying it now more than ever.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best deep-water fishing spot on the lake might just be right off the dock at The Grand. During your getaway, you can enjoy the Spring budding or Fall foilage over the mountains that create a unique, picturesque view from any spot in the house or yard. Experience nature and the wildlife at its best including chipmunks, squirrels and an array of birds at play. You might evev witness a visit from one of the raccoon families that reside in the area. No lions and tigers and the only bears you'll see are carved ones. The neighborhood is wonderful for your morning or evening walks, or to seek out the hidden trails that run along the lake and throughout the hills. Spring and Fall are very delightful at The Grand. Did you know that May/June have no gloom up here with beautiful blue skies and most of the time September/October are two of our best months weather wise - usually very nice for lake activities. In all, you'll find getting away from the 'city bustle' is a refreshing and uplifting treat that revives your inner soul and will surely have you coming back for more getaways year after year, season after season.
