Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This home is a beautiful custom built luxury retreat built in 2004 with great privacy, expansive decks and views of the mountains and lake to match.

Walk a block to the slopes, ski all day, and then relax in our spa on the expansive beautifully furnished back deck. Enjoy the views of the lake from the gazebo covered spa and bar. The views of the ski area and the mountains from the front deck are just as nice.

In the summer, golfing and hiking are just a short walk from our front door. Big Bear Lake is just a few minutes drive away and has a public beach, water skiing, a bike/hiking path, fishing, kayaking, and jet skiing.

Please refer to calendar for availability prior to your inquiry.

Great place, great location, and easy check in/out

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of friends and was praised over and over about how amazing the place was and how close it is to bear mountain. The exterior and interior are very charming and you feel right at home in the woods. The front and back deck are perfect especially with the hot tub out back. The studio type room on the first floor was perfect for friends that wanted a little more privacy. Check in was simple and check our rules were easy to follow. Will definitely be coming back again next season.

Great house & location

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful stay. The house was very clean, and the location is great - within walking distance of bear mountain ski area (shuttle to snow summit from bear mtn is convenient, if you time it correctly). The hot tub and view from deck are very nice. Jacuzzi tub in master suite is a nice bonus.

We decided on 4/5 stars due to just a few minor things that can easily be addressed by the hosts: 1) there was not enough toilet paper in the house (luckily we brought some extra). 2) we could only locate one lighter that barely worked to fire the grill and fireplace (the house directions mention matches that we could not find). 3) the coffee maker did not work (apparently the steam arm was broken) so we boiled water and used the coffee maker as a pour-over. 4) Although a path from the back door to the hot tub/grill had been cleared, the rest of the back deck was covered in a huge pile of ice/snow preventing access to the table/chairs/chiminea/patio heater (which didn’t have propane, perhaps because it was wintertime). Admittedly, there had been a couple of large snowstorms leading up to our visit, however, if you choose to charge a premium price for a VRBO, then your guests will expect the very best, including fully cleared decks, driveways, etc.

A couple of additional comments worth mentioning:

-we were told that the furnace was quite loud for the people sleeping in the separate room downstairs (I did not notice this in the master bed).

-The property description says "Queen size Beds (3), Double Beds (1), Twin or Single Beds (2), Sleep Sofa or Futons (1) Queen size sofa bed", but there are actually 2 Queen beds, not 3.

President's Day Wknd

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights over President's day wknd and had a blast. Obviously the snow was great this year, but so was the cabin. Easily accommodated our party of 10. Very clean with great features including a large open concept living space for everyone to gather as well as an awesome deck. Catherine and Lysa were both great to work with. They even offered to take care of the trash, which if you've ever been to Big Bear, is a huge convenience that they provided as an added courtesy. Very close to Bear Mountain, which was also nice to beat the rush and avoid the traffic on the main drag. Lastly, kids had a blast sledding down the side of the front yard. Only thing to be aware of is the driveway, which can be a challenge depending on the conditions. That said, would definitely rent again!

Great location & stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful location- close to Bear Mountain. The house is clean and had plenty of space for all of us to spread out. The room downstairs has a separate entrance which would have been nice to connect to the house but it wasn't too big of a deal. Will definitely stay here again!
