About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

A Sweet Pine Cabin - An original '40’s log cabin', lovingly restored & decorated. A cozy knotty pine interior and native rock fireplace make this Sweet Pine Cabin the perfect charming vacation get away for friends, families or lovers (Large pets OK too!). On a secured-fenced 1/4 acre lot, with easy off street parking that can fit 2-3 vehicles.


Complete with the original kitchen appliances and classic cabin decor, you will be swept back in time in this delightful environment. Enjoy relaxing on the front porch on our vintage rocking bench, which overlooks the huge fenced in yard. A perfect place for children or pets to roam under the pine trees. Or enjoy dinner on the picnic table, under the pine trees in the spacious backyard. If its the right time of year, our two apple trees will be bearing fruit and you can bake some fresh apple pie in the vintage stove- (still works great). There is a separate entry to a mudroom where you can remove your wet snow/ski clothes after snow play, before entering the kitchen.

Can't leave the 'real world' behind completely? No worries, you can surf the web to your hearts content anywhere inside or outside of the cabin, using our totally free full access high-speed wireless internet! Just logon with your wireless laptop, smartphone, WIFI or airport device and access our WIFI network called 'sweetpine'.

Other amenities include a barbecue grill, 2 flat screen color TVs w/cable, Roku with free NETFLIX (both TVs)VCR and DVD (living room). The living room flat screen TV also has a PlayStation 2 and a selection of games. The kitchen is well stocked with microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, pots/pans, baking items, separate mud room and more.

Only 10 minutes to the ski slopes, lake, golf, zoo, horseback riding, hiking, biking, shops, and restaurants. 5 minutes to the best fishing Big Bear has to offer.

Three charmingly decorated bedrooms and one bath. Very clean and lovingly restored. Master bedroom has a queen bed and color TV with cable and a Roku with free NETFLIX. Bedroom 2 has a full size bed. Bedroom 3 has two twin beds. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both upstairs and loft style.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We love this little log cabin- A great getaway any time of year! We love to escape the desert heat with Maxwell (pictured), to A Sweet Pine Cabin as often as we can. We think it is the quintessential mountain cabin and is exactly what we dreamed a cabin should be. We've had a blast decorating and upgrading this vintage 'Maltby' cabin with the help of our professional designer gal-pals... Thank you P&S!! 'Maltby' is the most well-known mid-century architect of Big Bear; during the heyday of the 1940's. In addition to small utterly charming custom residential log cabins, Maltby did many vintage hotels etc. during that period. Just pick-up any of the historical books on Big Bear and you'll be likely see some of his more 'monumental' architecture!. We chose to maintain many original vintage elements, as it really adds to the charm while maintaining the authenticity of this very 'real' log-cabin. We also really wanted a place that had plenty of room for pets, as we are BIG animal lovers, small & large, they are definitely members of the family too!

Why the Owner Chose Big Bear City, CA, USA:
We fell in love with the style and charm of A Sweet Pine Cabin. And the large fenced yard is perfect for our 4-legged family members.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
relax, eat, relax, eat, relax.... go ski, go fish, go boating, then more relaxing, and oh yeah, hiking and baking fresh apple pies/tarts from the apples on the tree in the yard...
