About Jon Varsano
Lauren and Jon Varsano, 2009
Jon Varsano purchased this House in 1998
Why Jon Varsano chose Big Bear
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Good cabin for the price but....
Overall a nice place to stay for the money. Everything worked fine and it was clean. But if you plan to cook bring your own pans. The pans in the cabin are not usable unless you like heavily scratched teflon in your diet. We brought food to cook but ended up going out more than planned.
My family had a great time here. I loved that we were so close to everything. They loved the Jacuzzi. Beautiful view of the forest from the back deck. The Jacuzzi needed to be filled up (the weather was very cold and the water evaporated quickly) and the owners had someone out with in the hour to fill it up. We will definitely stay here again.
Great cabin, bigger than I thought it would be.
Comfortably slept 7 of us. Clean, and quiet. Internet worked great. I would definitely stay again.
Glad that you enjoyed our place. Feel free to contact us again.
My boys and I started a new tradition this Christmas - go to Big Bear and play in the snow! The Cabin was perfect and we Loved the spa!! We walked to the snow play area and had a wonderful time. We would love to rent this cabin again in the summer because it was so comfortable.
Nice family cabin in Big Bear
Nice family cabin to spend a few days in Big Bear close to everything.
Could use some work, not responsive
Overall, an okay cabin to stay in. The location was great, not too far from the village but far enough to be in a quiet neighborhood. The cabin was cozy but not thoroughly clean. There were a couple of small leaks coming from the upstairs bathroom. We tried calling both the owners and the maintenance contact listed, and no one responded to our multiple calls.
I'm sorry you weren't able to get in touch with our maintenance company. The phone number is posted in the kitchen, the info books, and emailed to you. My owner info is also in the kitchen, info books, and emailed as well, but I checked my messages and never received a call from you. I am also readily available by email. It sounds like everything was OK except a minor leak which was already fixed. Thanks for your stay and review.
We are located a 10 minute drive to the ski resorts and about 12 minutes to the Village.
