Other Big Bear Lake Properties cottage description

*Propane BBQ.

*Linens and towels.


----- CHARM -----

----- COZY BEDROOMS -----

The cabin comfortably sleeps four adults. Each bedroom has a queen bed. The front bedroom has a lake view. The rear bedroom overlooks the back yard and has a high definition television. The living room has a double sleeper sofa. To ensure the comfort of all guests, 4 person maximum occupancy.

The kitchen has been fully upgraded, with new appliances, granite countertops, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and every tool needed to make a winter meal. The cabinets are stocked with pots, pans, plates and bowls, flatware, and baking tools. The dining table seats four with the leaf extended.

----- PETS WELCOME -----
We warmly welcome your friendly pets at no additional cost. The back and side yards are fully fenced. The cabin is just steps from the lake.

We apologize, but for liability reasons we require that all dogs stay in the house, in the yard, or on leash. Aggressive dogs are prohibited.

In winter, the snow can make everything look magical. The driveway is steep, however, and if it snows, you may need chains to get out.

If you leave your chains at home, or if the snow fall is especially steep, we do supply snow shovels. Or, if you need the driveway plowed, we are happy to call a service to do it. We cannot, however, guaranty a fast response and we will deduct the cost from your cleaning deposit.

----HOT TUB----
We have just added a new, luxury Jacuzzi brand hot tub with high power jets. Please note that we charge a $50/visit hot tub fee. We include it as a special fee to keep our base price lower, so that guests who do not wish to use a hot tub do not have to subsidize the cost of having one. The fee covers the cost of having a technician test the PH in the hot tub after each visit to ensure it is at a safe level and the additional utility cost that comes with having a hot tub.

If you do not want hot tub access please let us know before you book and we will be happy to remove the fee.

If you are interested in renting a boat for all or part of your stay, please inquire about our Malibux VLX Wakesetter, which is docked at a local marina Boat rental is an additional $300 for 3 hours, plus gas and a $500 deposit. If you want to rent the boat, we will refer you to our captain to confirm dates and times.

We do not warranty that household electronics, including the hot tub, will work. We have many guests and some are not as careful as you would be with these items. If something is not working we will try to replace it as soon as possible, and we will certainly refund any fees you paid for it (e.g., the hot tub fee) but we are not able to offer further refunds. If something major breaks (hot tub, stove, refrigerator, wifi living room television) we will also give you 20% off your next visit or allow you to cancel the remainder of your stay at no charge.

Please note this is a cabin, not a hotel. We do not have full time staff. If the cabin is out of toilet paper, please buy some and we will happily reimburse you. If the BBQ is out of propane, please take the tank to the 711, have it refilled, and we will reimburse you. If we are out of salt . . .well, you get the idea. We have many comforts at the cabin, because it is our own, but we cannot promise it will be restocked like a hotel. What we can promise is we will reimburse for anything you buy for the house and will respond quickly to any issues.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Alex and Christina live on the beach in Los Angeles with their three Siberian Huskies. They met in law school, got engaged 9 months later, and have been married since 2004. Alex enjoys snow boarding and surfing and is passionate about conservation. He is actively involved with several animal rescue organizations, with a particular focus on elephants. Christina grew up in the Tahoe foothills, but, at 36, is still learning to ski. She loves reading and going to the spa, and completed her first marathon in 2014.

                      Why the Owner Chose Other Big Bear Lake Properties:
                      No one wants to vacation in a grubby or dated house. The Snow Den was fully renovated in 2013, with all new appliances, high end furnishings, resort-style amenities, and up-to-date technology. We preserved the cabin's rustic charm by restoring the original wood floors, adding tongue and grove ceilings, and furnishing the house with locally made wood furnishings. A special note for families with pets: We are pet-friendly people and this is a pet-friendly house. The backyard is fully fenced. We do not charge a pet fee. The house is close to the lake, which is a real treat for dogs who enjoy chasing birds and splashing (we recommend an extendable leash to keep everyone safe; it's all fun and games until a bird gets hurt). The cabin is also less than a mile from a snowy hill and park that is great for hiking.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Walking distance to the lake, with lake views. One mile from the village. Three miles from Snow Summit. Fully modernized, with new appliances and furnishings; high definition, wall mounted televisions; Roku; Wii; and high speed WiFi. New luxury hot tub - high end model by Jacuzzi brand. Enjoy deep tissue and shiatsu massage. Optional boat rental, at almost half the price charged by local marinas in a newer and faster ski and wakeboard boat.
