Big Bear City chalet description

Welcome to 'Top O'The Rainbow' our Big Bear Magical Mountain Retreat! just 2 hours from Los Angeles. A great place to stay! any time of year ... Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall! We love to watch the beautiful leaves turn colors in Autumn and smell the fresh pine and crisp mountain air. Our Charming Chalet-Style Cabin feels like home, surrouded by tall pine trees... and is centrally located in a convenient and quiet neighborhood, just minutes from the ski areas, the lake, shopping, adventurous trails; close to convention center (enjoy fun events), and the airport ...enjoy the fabulous air show! ...1/2 mile to Big Bear Snow Play where you can bring the kids and have fun snowboarding and tubing ... enjoy the ride with them on the mini lift. The house is close enough to Big Bear Blvd (1-2 blocks) for easy access to the main road yet set back enough to enjoy the privacy and avoid the hustle and bustle of the main road. Rainbow Boulevard is 'always' plowed early each morning! The Big Bear Shuttle is available from 6AM for enthusiastic skiers through to 2AM for late night dinners in the Village.

This Cabin sleeps 6-7 people comfortably. [For larger groups needing more sleeping accommodations, the cabin next door can be made available and sleeps 6+ people. Our Cabin is great for family gatherings and all to enjoy our Game Room (converted garage) with pool table, TV, card/game tables, Foosball, and small refrigerator!

Our Cabin, Top O'The Rainbow, has two Bedrooms: one is an open loft. Downstairs has one Bathroom with a bathtub/shower. The house sleeps 6-7 people comfortably which includes a Full-Size daybed downstairs and a twin fold-out twin bed. The Master Bedroom upstairs is large and has a very comfortable Queen size bed, TV w/TIVO & Remote; the open Loft upstairs has a Trundle Day-Bed that can convert into two twin beds or clips together making a King size bed ... overlooking the cathedral ceiling-living room below, crackling fire in a stone fireplace, and a fabulous view through the wall of glass and elegant chandelier, of tall Pine trees. A very romantic and cozy place, tucked away, ... far from the maddening crowd, among giant pine trees. Feels like home.

The Living Room is nestled around the handsome stone fireplace which has a wood-burning fireplace 'insert' with a blower which also serves as an additional house heater . . . facing the Pine Trees through a wall of glass! What a wonderful sight it is, especially on a moonlit night, our front deck railing is draped with color lights which reflect off of the snow on the deck! Sliding glass doors open onto the large Front Deck which has a new charcoal/propane BBQ, perfect for Summer nights. Guests have commented on what fun it is to enjoy the deck among the tall pine trees and watch the birds!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Tim and his wife Cindy have lived in Point Dume, California for over 42 years and love living close to nature. Having visited his cabin in Moonridge with Cindy for 27 years, Tim loved introducing her to the Lake, Trees, Mountain Hiking and Skiing, where she too fell in love with its nature and all its glory.

                      Why the Owner Chose Big Bear City:
                      Tim and his wife Cindy looked for and found their dream mountain home in Big Bear 2 years ago. Unfortuneately the property was pulled off of the market much to their great disappointment. ... until Nov 2010 when they patiently & successfully bought the same property on Rainbow and closed escrow January 2011. They are thrilled!!!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      This Chalet Style Cabin is truly magical with high cathedral ceilings with a wall of glass view of Tall PINES, warm wood and beams throughout, cozy stone fireplace, and beautiful view through the window wall to the front deck among the tall pine trees. It's very peaceful and close everything: visit Big Bear Snow Play with its mini-tram is so fun for kids ...of all ages! (-1/2 mile); the Lake Board-Walk & picnic areas (-1 mile); Markets/Shopping Center (-2 miles); Snow Summit/Bear Mountain turnoffs (2-1/2 miles) and the Village (4 miles). Our street is a favorite walking street for the neighborhood, especially in the early morning for coffee on the way to CircleK. We noticed the street is always snow-plowed AM because school buses are en route. We call it Top O'The Rainbow because it truly is a Heavenly retreat to stay. ... Welcome!
