Property description

Make an unforgettable alpine summer or ski trip with family and friends. This spacious 5,000+ square foot custom log home is one of a kind--referred to by the local community as 'The Lodge'. You'll enjoy 2 sitting rooms with 25 foot ceilings, lodge pole windows from top to bottom, 4 elegantly decorated bedrooms with large game room, three oversized fireplaces, custom rock work and wood accents throughout. Private and secluded, 5 decks afford mountain and valley views in each direction. The property backs to an eagle preserve, ideal for wooded forest walks, exploring and sledding for the kids.

First time renting a private property? Not sure what you'll get? Rest assured, I've been renting the Mt Villa for well over 8 years and every single guest review has been 5 star. Take a look for yourself.

Sleeping Arrangements for 14+: 2nd floor Master Suite with a King and attached full bath; 3rd floor Master Bedroom with a King and attached full bath; 3rd floor Bedroom with a queen; 3rd floor bunk bedroom with a bunk bed, trundle and two sofa pullout singles; 3rd floor loft with two twins; 1st floor Gameroom serves also as a bedroom to sleep 4 with a full sofa pullout, a queen bed, and attached full bath. Additionally, a twin mattress is tucked into the gameroom closet to sleep one more.

The house was built new in 2005 and features top of the line appliances and conveniences. The house is 3 levels. The first floor, which is street level, enters into a large foyer followed by a expansive gameroom with fireplace and attached full bath. Stairs lead upstairs to the second level, where you find a 25' ceiling sitting room comfortable for 12 with fireplace, dining room for 10, spacious kitchen with center bar, and master bedroom and adjoining full bath. Expansive decks on either side are accessible from the second floor. Off the kitchen, a secluded deck offers a BBQ, patio furniture and a 6 person spa with speakers (aux input) ideal for late night and apre-ski soaking. Accent landscape lamps blazon the towering pines extending a cathedral like experience while you sit, soak and indulge in your favorite beverage. The upstairs third level hosts 3 bedrooms surrounding a loft with fireplace and expansive views.

This Mt Villa sleeps 14 comfortably. All first class appliances, furnishings and interior decorator touches abound. Stream your own music through a 5 point speaker sound system by Sonos. 4 TVs (2 Smart TVs with AppleTV). 6 Bicycles on site. Generous supply of firewood ($10/nt.). Located in the exclusive Big Bear Castle Glen Estates, this property offers privacy and space, it's backyard a 10 acre eagle preserve.

The house is located within 2 miles of the two ski resorts. In the summer take in a stroll to the lake, or ride bikes (5) provided at the house, for boating, jet skiing, water skiing and fishing.
