About Mary Ellen

We have rented cabins in Big Bear for many years for our family. We had the opportunity to buy our own cabin and were so fortunate to find Steps-2-Summit. It is a perfect family cabin where we have enjoyed many special moments and happy family gatherings. We can walk to the ski area, have lots of fun sledding and playing in the snow all around the cabin during the winter months. We also enjoy many great summer activities such as nearby hiking/bicycling trails, Alpine bobsleds, water slide, boating, nearby lake activities - water skiing, wake boarding and fishing. We hope you enjoy Big Bear Lake and our cabin as much as we do!

Mary Ellen purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mary Ellen chose Big Bear

Summit Estates is a great area - you can walk to the Snow Summit ski area, and the cabin is located just a few minutes drive to Bear Mountain (or shuttle from Snow Summit), markets, Big Bear Lake, and Big Bear Village. We are very close to hiking/biking trails and many fun activities during summer months. Located on a private, cul-de-sac road, we maintain the 'mountain hideaway' location which offers a great escape for year-round fun and relaxation. It is a perfect cabin for our family and is very special to us.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is on a secluded, peaceful private road - it is a great escape to enjoy many year-round mountain activities or just relax and enjoy! It is a great cabin for family get-togethers, celebrations, and reunions.

FOUR GENERATION BIG BEAR THANKSGIVING

  • 5 of 5

Could have made it 5 generations however my 105 year old Grandmother could not make it! From 2.5 months old to 89. Such a lovely and spacious cabin with all of the amenities and the feel of home. Super super clean and cozy! We only had to bring ourselves and our eats! Played games, enjoyed the nature walks, sat by the fire....all of the wonderful things big families love to do. We will most definitely be back! <3

Great time, very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations (ages 19 to 77), 8 people total for a family get together. There was plenty of room for everybody to have their space. One of the reasons I chose this home is because there is a big dining room table with enough room for all of us to have our meals and play games together. We also enjoyed playing pool and sitting on the balcony. I highly recommend this home and would stay again.

Family Summer Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The property location is ideal as it is close to so many wonderful activities like Snow Summit, hiking trails, the Village shops and so many other things to do. The property provides so much space for large groups or families and is fully stocked with everything you could need. We had full days of activities and enjoyed meals in the spacious dining area together. The kitchen is equipped for anything you could want to cook or BBQ nicely. Home owner and caretaker are readily available should questions arise, and instructions/area suggestions are very detailed and helpful. We have rented multiple properties and this is our favorite by far!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Our Stay at this cabin was incredible. We had a wonderful time. We had 7 adults and 5 kids between the ages of 2-10. We never felt crowded. The layout of the cabin work great for all our kids and their families. The cabin was very clean and it really felt like home, with a beautiful view. It was walking distance to Snow Summit and lots of room for sledding around the cabin. It was a very pleasant and fun weekend. The owner of the cabin was very helpful. We would love to come back for another family get together. It was perfect.

Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has a fantastic location, basically just a block from Snow Summit. It was very clean and very roomy. We had a great time and absolutely intend to come back. The owner is extremely solicitous and takes care to make sure everything goes smoothly. We go to Big Bear every year and honestly, this is the best place we've rented. You will like it!
