Property description

Looking for a relaxing retreat in the mountains of Big Bear? This is the place. A cozy cabin that is perfect for a family with small kids. Avoid the noise of Big Bear Blvd for quiet evenings and mornings while only 10 mins from the slopes and the lake. 10,000 sq ft fenced in lot with open space behind the property. The national forest is just a few hundred feet away with access to miles of hiking and exploring.

The cabin has a rustic feel with the modern touches that make it easy to use and comfortable. The exterior is made from redwood, with a large deck that wraps around to the kitchen. The interior has wood trim and slat throughout and a cozy gas stone fireplace. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality cookware, table settings, Norwegian waffle iron (the one that makes little hearts), popcorn popper, blender, etc. The living room has a new couch and 40' flatscreen TV with a BluRay player.

The beds have quality mattresses and warm comforters. The second bedroom has a pyramid (twin over full) bunkbed and a pop-up crib. The loft is a great play area for the kids with a safety gate to close off the stairs. It boasts a large window overlooking the backyard, a queen bed, twin bed, a flatscreen TV with DVD/VHS player.

The cabin will sleep 8 if there is a mix of kids and adults. If just adults, recommended group limit is 6 to comfortably enjoy the cabin. Rates are based on guests using our cabin sheets and towels. However, guests may choose to bring their own sheets and towels, and can request a rebate of $40 off their total bill.

Come relax and enjoy Big Bear from the quiet woods of Sugarloaf. Maps and brochures are available at the cabin, and the owners are happy to provide suggestions on things to do and see.

FREE HIGH SPEED INTERNET.

No Smoking, No Pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family who have enjoyed relaxing and having fun at the cabin with our small children. The Air Force has moved us from this incredible getaway and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Why the Owner Chose Sugarloaf:
Nestled among three large Jeffrey Pines, with a backyard open to the forest, Laika's Place is a perfect family getaway. You can escape the noise and hustle of Big Bear Blvd, but the short drive to all of Big Bear's attractions makes day and evening adventures easy to get to.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The beautiful redwood siding on our cabin sets it apart from the surrounding homes. Inside, the warm and welcoming stone fireplace makes you want to get cozy on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa, or even gather around the table in the expanded kitchen area. We also added several features to protect your younger children to including padding around the hearth, a safety gate upstairs and child locks on the kitchen cabinets. If you're looking for place to relax and have fun with your family, this is it.
