Though located in a pristine section of Big Bear known as Whispering Forest, far from bustling crowds, it is within a short drive to our main attractions. It's just a 10-minute drive to the slopes and another five minutes to the center of Big Bear Village. This ideal Big Bear mountain retreat has been discovered by countless Southern California travelers as well as others from Arizona and Nevada.
As you drive your vehicle up the gentle curves of Eagle Mountain Road, a turn to the left near the top of the mountain takes you to Green Mountain Drive. The view from this ridge road has been described as outstanding by many guests. Near the end of the road you will find the Almost-to-Heaven Hideaway. The trails of the National Forest are within walking distance. But since you won’t find mention of this in any guide book, you can spend a full day discovering the area without ever running into another human being.
The lake may be 7,000 feet above sea level, but here in the Whispering Forest, the hideaway is another 1,000 feet closer to heaven -- hence its name. Almost-to-Heaven Hideaway provides the rustic atmosphere guests seek in a mountain home, but also offers the conveniences one expects while on vacation. The kitchen contains a large refrigerator with ice maker, a microwave, a dish washer and a slow cooker plus many appliances you don't usually find in rental cabins. If you can't locate something you're looking for, just call us and we'll bring it over. We live 10 minutes from the cabin and seem to have two of everything.
Tucked behind shuttered doors in the hallway closet is a washer and dryer. In addition to its custom stone fireplace, the great room contains a large-screen television, a DVD player and a massive varnished log slab breakfast bar that lets the chef enjoy the inspiring view while preparing a meal. That spectacular 180-degree view of both the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit peaks can be seen from the great room and master bedroom, while the two bedrooms on the lower level offer forest views. The entire south wall of the main floor is composed of sliding glass doors, which lead to the back deck that runs the full length of the cabin.
Adjacent to the great room is the vaulted master suite containing a queen oak sleigh bed; a large, mirrored walk-in cedar closet; and a second flat-screen television and DVD player. Downstairs the other two bedrooms are separated by the second bath. One bedroom contains a queen iron bed and the other holds a set of full bunk beds that can accommodate two adult couples or four giggling youngsters.
There’s a fenced back yard if you want your pups to get some outdoor exercise, and there is no additional pet deposit. Because the Almost-to-Heaven Hideaway is tucked away on a dead-end road, it's extremely rare that you will ever hear a passing car. But you may hear squirrels scampering across the roof.
It's time for you to leave that hum-drum life you lead at the bottom of the mountain and come up to the clean air you will find 7,00 feet above sea level. You'll be glad you did. Hope to see you soon.
