Relax and enjoy all the amenities Varsano Villa has to offer. 07/23/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:

The charming Varsano Villa provided a great summer getaway! We arrived and were delighted to see a beautiful wrap around porch with chairs and a swing, the perfect place for doing what bears do best, relaxing! The porch led us to the back deck complete with a gas grill and hot tub – we could hardly wait to dip our tired paws. As we explored the inside of our rustic themed retreat, we found a relaxing living room complete with two full sized couches, an inviting fireplace, and a wall mounted flat screen TV – home away from home. The decorative bathrooms were clean and well equipped. The kitchen had everything making it a favorite location to hang out. The master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed and the second bedroom was complete with a queen bed, bunk beds, a TV (including video games). Next time, we will bring the cubs! The owner provided a plethora of information on the local amenities and activities. This cozy gem is a very short drive to the quaint town of Big Bear where there are great restaurants, breweries, shops and nightlife. Equally as accessible were hiking trails, kayaking and swimming, and a farmer’s market to enjoy local produce and crafts. The locals were wonderful too providing great services like zip lining, fly fishing and gold mining! If you are looking for a relaxing getaway that is close to outdoor adventure, then look no further!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Lauren and Jon Varsano, 2009

Why the Owner Chose Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
We bought our house so that we could get out of the hustle bustle in Los Angeles to be close with nature. Since buying the place we have a couple of kids who enjoy coming up to the house. We wanted a place up in the mountains for skiing, hiking, and relaxation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
BIG BEAR INFO The Varsano Villa is located only 1 mile from the lake and 3 short miles from Bear Mountain Ski Resort. Click on the LOCATION MAP for details of the rental home's proximity to points of interest in the Big Bear Lake area. The Big Bear Lake area in the San Bernardino Mountains is a year round resort. A convenient mountain retreat with fresh air, a beautiful alpine landscape, and a relaxing natural atmosphere, it is the perfect weekend getaway from the bustling urban life. Soak in the Varsano Villa's outdoor jacuzzi spa or swing on the hammock amongst the tall pines and giant sequoia's and feel your stress melt away. For the active outdoors person, the Big Bear Resort area features skiing, snow boarding, sledding/inter tubing, and snow shoeing in the Winter. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, enjoy hiking, cycling, boating, fishing, swimming, go-karting, alpine & water sliding, camping, shooting, and horseback riding. The Big Bear Village and Big Bear Boulevard offer a plethora of shopping and dining experiences. Whether you like to search for antiques or bring your family to the Moonridge Zoo, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone happy.
