Private Homes, The Village house description

Welcome to Leaf and Needle!

This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a California king bed; the second bedroom has two bunk beds (one with a trundle); and the third bedroom has a queen bed. It easily accommodates our family of 4 and my brother's family of 4 as we enjoy spending quality time together in the mountains. The living room hide-a-bed, and the futon in the master bedroom allow guests to spread out. We provide clean towels and clean sheets on all the beds, with additional linens in closets if needed.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, mini crock-pot and more. We host Thanksgiving dinner here for our family, and find that the kitchen bar makes serving easy and convenient.

The living room opens up to the kitchen, letting the food preparer be a part of the group social scene. Entertainment in the living room includes a 33 inch TV with Bluray/DVD player that streams Netflix. If you just want to curl up on the couch, the wood burning stove offers a cozy atmosphere.

If the weather is nice outside, a large picnic table on the deck in the backyard provides a convenient place to eat. A charcoal BBQ is on the deck for grilling summer fare. If it's a bit hot and sunny, there is a large umbrella that can be found in the hall closet.

Leaf and Needle is less than one mile from The Village and the lake. There are many restaurants and shops in The Village, as well as two movie theaters. Holloway's Marina at the lake offers fishing licenses and boat rentals. The trailhead to Pine Knot trail is a five minute walk from the house. Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, with it's snow play /inner-tube slope, water slide, miniature golf and bobsled slide is less than a half a mile away.

Please call if you have more detailed questions about what is available at Leaf and Needle. We hope you will come stay and make wonderful memories.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Our family of four enjoys discovering new places, sharing our favorites, and playing games. The bobsled at the Alpine Sled is a definite new favorite!

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, The Village:
              Big Bear Lake is a 2 hour drive from our home and is beautiful all year. In the fall the leaves turn red and gold, in winter the snow brings snowball fights, sledding, skiing, and snowboarding. In the spring, the tulips and daffodils bloom and the trees begin to wake up. Summer completes the year as we hike, swim and continue to enjoy nature. With the convenience of restaurants, shopping, and movie theaters, Big Bear is an ideal vacation get away that isn't too far away.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love to sit on the porch swing on our front deck and listen to the birds and the wind in the trees. When it is cold, there is nothing like cuddling up in front of the wood burning stove sipping hot chocolate.
