Fox Farm cabin description
McAlister Cabin is situated in the lovely Fox Farm/lower Moonridge area of Big Bear Lake. This 2-story cabin, with 3 bedrooms and a loft, is a great place for one or two families.
The cabin is equipped with 4 flat screen HDTV's (w/ HD cable boxes for each TV), 4 Blu-Ray DVD players, Nintendo Wii, WIFI, and 6-person spa on the back deck.
Relax on the front or back deck surrounded by tall pine trees and sounds of nature or enjoy the wood-burning fireplace in the bright and open living room area.

There is plenty of parking space for cars, a boat, or an RV on the driveway. A large front and rear yard allow kids plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors and for snowplay! McAlister Cabin is less than 2 miles to the lake, Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Ski Resorts, Bear Mountain Golf Course, and local grocery stores/restaurants. Just over 3 miles away is Big Bear Village where you can find plenty of shops and restaurants. And across the street from the Kagan's Country Barn and Whispering Pines Estates.

Owner response: Thanks for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
We had a great time here. Everything was just perfect. This home far exceeded our expectations! The communication from the owner was just terrific. The manual found at the house really made everything so easy for us during our stay. This is a great location for all activities in Big Bear Lake. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood. We were delighted to find it clean and ready for us and everything worked. During our week there, we had no need to ever contact the owner for any. Issues at all. We will definitely return! Thank you for your hospitality!!!

Owner response: We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, and appreciate your kind words. Looking forward to your next visit. Thanks!
What a treat! It is rare to find an updated house with modern ammenities similar to your own home. This place is large enough for 3 couples to spend time together without crowding. The upstairs has an additional loft area with a flat screen, perfect for teenagers or kids looking to watch movies seperate from adults. Book your stay now, I know that I will be staying here again this winter.

Outstanding VRBO Cabin Rental in Big Bear!
Outstanding VRBO Cabin Rental in Big Bear!
First of all, I want to mention that the pictures for this cabin do not do the cabin justice. Prior to the trip, I had forwarded the pics to the group that would be staying with us for the weekend...once they arrived, each of them kept saying that the cabin is even better than the pictures. The cabin's interior has been upgraded and very well maintained. Very clean linens, new paint, upgraded carpet and new furniture. Rooms are spacious (although the master upstairs takes the cake by a long shot) and there are 2 bathrooms, which worked out perfectly. There is a TON of parking to include 2 garage spots and rooms for another 3-4 cars outside of the garage. We took advantage of the Jacuzzi and it was awesome...it was HOT and very large. The gas bbq next to the Jacuzzi worked great and we used the large picnic table on the same deck. I especially loved the "combo" style front door lock...made it easy for everyone to come and go as they pleased! TV and internet was SUPER easy to work. We didn't need to call the owner for anything, once we arrived. Also, the location was very easy to get to! A couple of things to note before arriving: We would have liked more shower towels so maybe bring some extras...we brought our own "beach towels" for the Jacuzzi too. Also, the house comes with 1 or 2 trash bags and 1 roll of paper towels...make sure you bring extra provisions. Lastly, there were no zip lock baggies or Tupperware...we had rented a boat for the day and needed to pack lunches but we made it work. Again, these are very little things and just good to know so you can plan accordingly! I honestly can't say enough nice things about this cabin!

Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Great suggestion regarding towels. We have already added more towels for use with spa (they're in the closet in the downstairs bedroom with the king bed) and we plan to put additional towels in the bathrooms. Thanks much.
Perfect place for anyone to stay, even locals, when attending an event at one of the properties across the street. It is easy to find & conveniently located close to lake, ski slopes, shopping, dining, & supermarkets. The cabin is light & airy, clean, spacious, well appointed, comfortable beds. My family will stay here again. The owner is quite nice and quick to respond to your inquiries.
