                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I am an art gallery owner and interior designer who lives in Palm Springs. I go to White Pine Cabin mostly in the Summer to take advantage of the perfect Summer weather. But I love Big Bear Lake year-round. Between the gorgeous Winters with guaranteed skiing from Thanksgiving to Easter (thanks to incredible snow-making capabilities), the beautiful Springs with all the wildflowers in bloom, the perfect Summers (with so many lake activities and a busy Village schedule of events), and wonderful Autumn foliage, hiking, and harvest festivals, Big Bear Lake is truly a great place to get away to all year round.

                  Why the Owner Chose Escape For All Seasons:
                  After searching the Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead areas for over a year to find the perfect cabin, I found this one. I bought it the first day it came on the market after being owned and cherished by the same family for decades. It's set on a huge 1/4+ acre property that's fully fenced and gated (perfect for dogs) and surrounded with soaring evergreens and quaking aspens, has all the original charm but modern conveniences and thoughtful updates throughout. I named it White Pine Cabin both because it's painted white and it has the original old growth pine on every wall and ceiling throughout the entire cabin. The neighborhood is wonderful - quiet and rustic with towering evergreens everywhere you look. I've put in new flooring throughout and updated it, so it has both the original rustic charm, but also great creature comforts and modern conveniences. Unless you must be lakefront (but beware all the boat and human noise!), the location can't be beat. The lake is an easy walk away. There's a lake front RV park with a marina very nearby where you can rent any type of boat you want. The entrance to the Knotty Pine Trail (considered the most picturesque in the San Bernadino National Forest) is literally a 3 minute walk from the cabin. The Village is an easy walk away, as are all kinds of trails and country roads to explore. It's a wonderful area for walking, hiking, or biking. And there are a number of antique shops, really good restaurants, the best bakery in the area, and a family recreation center (with horse stables, an alpine slide, a big arcade, and all kinds of family activities) all within a 10 minute walk. And literally everything else in the Big Bear area is a short drive away. It's also closer to Lake Arrowhead, LA, and Palm Springs that properties on the other side of the lake or in Big Bear City.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The cabin is a unique blend of original old world charm (with the old growth pine throughout) and modern conveniences and comfort. It has been updated and is very well maintained. The 1/4+ acre lot is private and fully fenced. And the location is perfect for everything Big Bear Lake has to offer.
