Located within two to three blocks to the center of The Village and just a five-minute drive to the Snow Summit Ski Lifts. Everything you will need is within close proximity once you land at this resort-like vacation rental. In the summer you can swim, boat, fish and sight-see from your own backyard. In the winter you can go skiing (alpine or cross-country), snowboarding, sledding/tubing and enjoy the beautiful snow. This is lakefront at a fraction of the cost of renting lakefront.
This beautiful lakefront condo is one of three units in a triplex. It was built in 1977 and the given name of the complex is: Lake Chalets. The name of our unit is: Lakefront Retreat. There are two buildings on the lot. The 1st building facing the street has garages and a unit above. The rear building has two units. Our unit is the top floor of the rear building, which has no shared walls and a huge deck with unobstructed lake views.
The two-story condo feels much more like a private home than a condo; there are no hallways to get lost in and it is very private. It has cathedral ceilings and tudor details. This does not feel like a condo or a triplex; it is much more private and feels like a cabin. The lot is over 9000 square feet sitting 'on' the lake. There is plenty of room for activities while waiting for your next boat ride/water ski, your next big catch, snow play or simply watching the boats come and go from the nearby, adjacent marina.
Bedding Configuration: The master BR has a queen-size platform bed featuring a down comforter with duvet plus down pillows with high thread count linens. The master features its own large closet with remote color 20-inch TV with DirecTV and DVD player. It also has end tables with lamps, alarm clock and antique armoire for storage of all additional linens, towels and blankets.
The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with down comforter and duvet plus down pillows 'and' a matching bunk bed separated by an end table with lamp and alarm clock. A modest stackable washer/dryer is in the closet for easy storage and access.
The third and fourth bedrooms are dual lofts separated by its’ own bathroom on the second floor. Each loft is open, with no walls, and has two full beds sleeping four total in the loft area. By the textbook real estate definition, these are not actual bedrooms. There is a closet in the bathroom and a hanging rack in the hallway. Drawers for clothes should be kept under the bed; each bed has three drawers under it.
Living Room: 40-inch Flat Screen TV with DirecTV, wireless internet (airport and ethernet), mac computer and DVD player. Enjoy a crackling fire in the rock fireplace on our comfortable ultra suede sectional couch.
Deck: Just off the Kitchen sits the Deck, that includes views of tall pine trees and clear skies for stargazing or snowfall. Enjoy the sunset from the sit-down views, while melting away the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Backyard: Oversized and huge, the backyard has room for any outdoor activity you can think of including, in the winter, making snow angels in the snow-covered backyard which lies just a few steps down from your own shared dock.
Kitchen: Fully-equipped kitchen with travertine floors, dishes and settings for 12 persons, and all appliances - oven/range for big meals, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker and a steak knife set for your steak dinners. With amazing views of the lake through the sliding windows above the sink, and all kitchen utensils, pots and pans - you'll be hard pressed to find a better-stocked kitchen.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Location is amazing!
The house is actually a tri-plex. This is an upstairs unit and has a great outside deck. It's a little older so don't expect granite countertops and high end bathrooms. It has pretty much everything you need including a bbq. We enjoyed our stay.
We had a great time and the location was excellant. The Home was very comfortable.
The property was perfect for what we were looking for. It had a cabin feel and being close to the lake and marina was a huge plus.
Kari was a pleasure to speak with and made sure our first experience in her home left us wanting to return. The home is in a GREAT location, and view cannot be beat at sunrise or sunset. We will return in the spring!!!
Wonderful property, great location
This is a very comfortable home close to everything in the downtown area Big Bear Lake with a beautiful lake view. All the amenities you need. You can't go wrong... Enjoy your stay...
Great family-friendly vacation
We had a great weekend mini-vacation with our two children. The home was clean and inviting, with plenty of space for our boys. The location was ideal with access to the lake and also the Village. Can't wait to go back!
Beautiful home in the perfect Big Bear location!
My family was long overdue for a get-a-way where we could reconnect and have some fun. We couldn't be happier with our experience. Booking this home was made easy by the excellent communication with the owners. The information and directions they provided were clear, allowing us to settle in easily and enjoy our time. The cabin is beautiful. It's set on the lake with huge picture windows and a large deck. There is a cozy fireplace, comfortable beds and bedrooms, all with cable TV, and a washer/dryer. A computer and Wifi are available for your use, but we were having so much fun playing the card and board games provided even the kids barely logged on! It is a great option for all situations. A local trolley heading to area hot spots offers an all day pass and was easy to catch. There is bowling and an arcade, the marina, as well as fine dining, shopping and nightlife in nearby Big Bear Village. Our favorite activity was a trip to the Alpine Zoo, where they rescue and rehabilitate wildlife. The animals are up close and the enrichment activities were incredible. Truly the perfect weekend. We can't wait to book the cabin again!!
