Bear Mountain cabin description

Welcome to your charming, secluded cabin. This cabin is very clean, with new central heating, appliances, flooring, drywall, paint, refinished decks, washer/dryer, sheets/bedding and flat screen TV's with cable, movie channels and Netflix. We choose this cabin because of the backyard sledding and access to national forest hiking trails. You do not have to drive anywhere to enjoy beautiful big bear pines and mountain views If you are the adventurous type the national forest trail head is also located within viewing distance of the back yard and has a family friendly trail for hiking, biking or cross country skiing. We are 1.5 miles from Bear Mountain resort and the Moonridge zoo. The quaint mountain village in big bear is only a couple miles away with all the dinning and shopping you could ever want,
The cabin is located near the end of a dead end street, with very few other rentals around. You will not have to worry about up all night long, loud neighbors. Most of the houses close by are non rented personal vacation homes.

We get lots of afternoon sun and always have great forested views of the snow play area below the house and the trees on the mountain across from the cabin.

Inside the cabin is very clean with many new amenities. Downstairs has one bedroom/den with a couch bed, across the hallway is a full bath with stacked washer and dryer.

Kitchen is small but works well and opens to dinning room and living room. Everything you might need is stocked in the kitchen, silverware, pots, pans, plates, cups, popcorn maker, coffee maker, coffee mugs, coffee, knifes, trash bags, microwave, toaster, sponges, kitchen towels, serving spoons and forks.

The living room has one couch and one love seat, both microfiber and facing our gas assisted fireplace and Samsung flat screen TV, with charter cable and DVR.

Upstairs we have two large bedrooms and a bathroom. Master bedroom has one queen bed with new sheets and bedding, dresser, love seat and coffee table for watching cable or movies, and a large closet.

Guest Bedroom has one queen bed and a bunk/trundle combo with two twins and a full. All bedding and sheets are clean and new. Also some kids books, and games in this guest bedroom.

All linens towels, hand towels, wash clothes, kitchen towels, cleaning rags, sheets, blankets are provided and new.

The bed situation is as follows:

downstairs bedroom 1 pull out queen =2 adults
upstairs master 1 queen =2 adults
upstairs guest 1 queen = 2 adults
upstairs guest 1 full (bottom bunk) = 2 adults
upstairs guest 1 twin (top bunk)= 1 adult

              Our back yard is a hikers wonderland of fun. A national forest trail head is less than 100 yards away from the back yard with hiking, biking or even cross country skiing. We are 1.5 miles from the Bear Mountain Ski Resort and Moonridge Zoo.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We are a family of Eight. My wife Fern and I have 4 children, CC, Elexa, Aubrie, and Jackson. We also usually bring Grandma Deena and our Dog Bodhi anywhere we go.

              Why the Owner Chose Bear Mountain:
              My mother has been bringing me to Big Bear since I was a kid, I learned to snow board here and have always loved the fun and charm of Big Bear. In recent years my wife and children have also been visiting Big Bear and we have decided that as a family this is our favorite vacation destination. We chose this cabin because of the awesome setting and backyard. We wanted a cabin that had a destination we could walk to because on our vacations we do not want to have to drive. This cabin was our perfect answer. With snow play, sledding, and serious hiking, we fell in love instantly. We paid more to have these luxuries in our backyard, but we decided that it would pay off in the years to come, knowing that our children would have the extra experiences this cabin has to offer. We also happened to love the cabin itself, which was a big bonus. It is so clean and nice inside, it just feels like a vacation.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Our property is so cool, because it fits our whole family, has sledding, snow play and hiking in the back yard. The cabin is also very nice and clean with new carpet, wood floors, drywall and many other things I have already told you about. My Mom takes a daily hike up the canyon with the dogs, this is one of her favorite parts of staying at the cabin. The kids ask to go play in the snow all morning, and I just love to relax in front of the TV, fireplace or on the deck.
