Looking to avoid the heat of summer and drive up to cool Big Bear where it still feels like spring? You can do so by renting the charming Bear Country Farmhouse.
There are hundreds of typical cabins in Big Bear, but there is only one that shows its patriotic colors. Images of Old Glory appear throughout the farmhouse. Even the front door wreath welcomes you with decorative red, white and blue flowers.
While some vacation property owners raise their rates during summer, not so with us. We have maintained our very reasonable $115 nightly rate on this special rental that sleeps six. Bring the four-legged members of your family as well. They are most welcome without having to pay an additional pet fee.
Located a short five-minute drive to the lake and another 10 minutes to Big Bear's quaint village, it's no wonder that the Bear Country Farmhouse is extremely popular. Just read the dozens of positive reviews that have made the farmhouse a five-star rated property by VRBO.
Have you ever wished you could step back in time to a world without the hectic distractions we live with today? The two-bedroom, two-bath Bear Country Farmhouse is the perfect place to do just that.
Our Big Bear one-of-a-kind vacation rental is designed to look like a 1900’s rustic farmhouse where city-slickers can just drop their bags and settle in. Introduce your children to the simple joys of gathering together with family and friends to rekindle memories of times gone by, long before cell phones, texting and the Internet (though WiFi is available for those who must be connected to the outside world). Here's the perfect location to relive those memories of your childhood.
This charming farmhouse even has its own windmill and backyard barn. Experience a simpler period in America in the charming “moo-cow” farmhouse, and at such a bargain. With its red, white and blue color scheme, the farmhouse has been dubbed the all American barn by many.
The farmhouse looks much as it would in the early 1900s. All floors are wide-plank pine, and the T&G ceilings are supported by massive wood beams. Care has been taken to keep today’s modern gadgets – the TVs, DVD players and appliances -- behind closed doors to maintain the look of an early American farmhouse.
In the large, eat-in kitchen, the cottage-white, bead-board wainscoting and barn-red walls surround a room filled with country charm. Farm antiques, such as early American utensils, add to the kitchen’s country look. There’s even a deep, double farmhouse sink! You also have the convenience of a washer/dryer in the kitchen, but since it isn't the ringer-type model your grandmother used, you’ll find it hidden behind the barn doors of the laundry closet.
As soon as the sun dips below the west end of the lake, falling temperatures quickly follow on the mountain. That’s when you will want to gather ‘round the fireplace in the living room that keeps the entire farmhouse toasty warm on chilly nights. There are additional wall heaters in the bedrooms as well. The linen closet is also filled with numerous blankets and quilts.
When it's time to tuck in the young ones, climb the pine staircase to the second floor where the two bedrooms are separated by a full bath. The master bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and wood cabinet that holds the second TV and DVD player. There’s also a spacious, mirrored closet. The second bedroom (fondly known as the Blue Bear Room) has a trundle bed with two twin mattresses. This bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to an observation deck with views that are particularly beautiful as the sun begins its western descent. You can keep an eye on the youngsters and your pups playing in the fenced backyard below.
Back downstairs, two more individuals can drift off to sleep watching the flickering flames of the fireplace from the queen sofa bed in the living room. There is a convenient bath just down the hall. That brings the total sleeping capacity to six. Well, it can be seven if one of your children is an infant. We have a baby crib for the little one.
For the night owls who don’t want the day to end, there’s a large screen television and DVD player with access to hundreds of movie and sports channels in the living room china cabinet.
