Big Bear City cabin description

Our Cozy Cabin has all the amenities you need at the best price and location! The Master Bedroom has a new, comfortable queen bed. The loft boasts a full and a twin bed with plenty of open space. Downstairs there is a LazyBoy upgraded sofa bed with a Queen mattress. We have tons of old movies we have collected over the years as well as a DVD player. There is a one of a kind wood burning fireplace and cozy seating to enjoy. The bathroom has a tub and shower. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies, including basic spices and pantry items. There is a beautiful new hot tub in the backyard that is very private and relaxing.
Our cabin is also our home away from home, so we have put our time and money into making it beautiful and comfortable. We fell in love with it because of its charm and interior. For a smaller cabin, it is open and inviting. The walls are all paneled in a beautiful golden pine, the fireplace was built using all local rocks and burns real wood. We have furnished it with nice high quality furniture that is in line with the cabin feel. We have not put up a bunch of pictures or knickknacks. We were trying to keep the place feeling uncluttered and clean.
Our cabin was custom built by our old neighbor. We have added a new hot tub in the backyard just off the deck. It is the perfect way to end a day in the snow. We live on a quiet residential street with many full time locals. It is very quiet and peaceful, as well as safe for kids. Just two streets up is the local forest for walking and sledding. A short 5 minute drive and you are at the ski resorts or 10 minutes and you are at The Village. We love being close to everything but also far enough away from the crowds.
Our cabin is the perfect getaway for couples looking a romantic weekend or families looking to reconnect and make new memories.
Book it and we know you'll be back again!

                      Car: Necessary

                      Big Bear is a favorite local destination for Southern Californians. It offers beautiful hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and cool weather in the summer months. During the winter it is a hot destination for skiers and snowboarders. It's close proximity to LA, San Diego, and Orange County allow visitors to take a spur of the moment trip! Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are premier mountains for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Our cabin is a ten minute drive to all ski resorts. We are so close to the action but far enough away to enjoy the quiet peace of the mountains. There is also fun bars, quaint family restaurants, and speciality shops all close by.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We became a family in 1997 and moved from our beach communities to the new areas in South Orange County. Having grown up and gone to college in southern California, we never wanted to leave. However, we love traveling and getting away for the weekend. We have 3 children that we want to grow up like we did. Enjoying the beach, the dessert, and the mountains. We are a typical active family just trying to work hard and enjoy life when we can.

                      Why the Owner Chose Big Bear City:
                      We bought this cabin because of our love of the mountains. Growing up in Southern California, we spent many days driving up to Big Bear with our families. After getting married, we would drive up for the day but driving home at the end of the day was getting exhausting and sad. We would spend an amazing day and then have to leave, when all we wanted to do was curl up by the fire with a warm drink and enjoy the mountain night. Since buying our cabin we have added 3 children to our family! It transitioned beautifully from our couples retreat to our family cabin. Our children love the place and can't wait to getaway too. Since they all share a large loft space, they really reconnect and enjoy each others' company. They also spend HOURS outside collecting, snow playing, and building. They always sleep best when we are at the cabin! Sadly, as our family has gotten older and busier our time up there is less. We are offering other families and couples the opportunity to enjoy what we have loved so much. We still get up there as much as we can!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Finding our cabin was a miracle. We had spent a long exhausting day looking, and nothing was even close to what we wanted. As we were in the office getting ready to leave a realtor came in with a new listing. It sounded like just what we were looking for. However after a disappointing day, we were hesitant to get our hopes up. The realtor said he hadn't even gotten the keys yet but the place was empty. It was only a few blocks away. So off we went! We could only peek in the windows but from what we say we loved it at first sight! We stayed the night so we could actually 'see' it! The next day we went again and walked into exactly what we wanted. A large peaked roof and wood paneled, larger wood beams across the ceiling, a real wood burning fireplace made from stone. A large deck off the back, a small kitchen but fully loaded. It was cozy, warm, comfortable, and unique. As we walked around outside, we met a lot of neighbors. Our neighbor on the corner, came over and told us how her husband had built the whole place himself. She even showed us yellowing pictures of him during the process of building. What a treasure we had found and on a perfect street. It is a family friendly neighborhood that reminds us of home. We hope you will enjoy it as well as respect the neighborhood that we share.
