Property description

This rare custom built log cabin has original, custom furnishings and intricate detail throughout. This beautiful rustic log cabin was specially designed and built for a very well-known celebrity whom you may know as Richard Carpenter of Karen and Richard Carpenter 'Carpenters'. He built the house in 2002 for his family to live in and call home. The homeowners purchased it from Mr. Carpenter in August of 2013. The house is exactly as he left it with all the furnishings he purchased for the cabin.

This beautiful vacation cabin is centrally located in Big Bear near to both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Ski Resorts, not to mention being close to lots of fun shopping in The Village of downtown Big Bear as well. Within a two mile radius you can visit the lake, or dine at some fabulous restaurants or visit Big Bear Snow Play, Baker's Pond, Hiking Trails, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Boating and much more!

In addition to all of the fun nearby for the entire family, don’t forget about the Game Room, beautiful custom built Teak Wood Pool Table, a Foosball table, and Wii. This cabin is very kid friendly with tons of games and puzzles. There is also a 65' TV with premium channels for Game Day celebrations and a green felted poker table to liven up your stay.

You will truly enjoy this peaceful and inviting home in a quiet, wooded setting. There is nothing more amazing than viewing the night sky while soaking in the Hot Tub in the backyard. Find Summit Lodge on Facebook to see some fun photos taken at the cabin from families like yours.
