About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den (See Description), 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Summer time & the livin' is easy at our Little Lodge.

Our wonderful family cabin is nestled in the picturesque Boulder Bay area, just about 8-10 minutes from the Village and the ski resorts! Across the street is open land, a peek a boo view of the lake can be seen from the lower deck off the living room and upper deck off the master bedroom. The living room has a 50" flat screen TV and DVD player along w/ a large stone gas fireplace to warm your tootsies and enjoy sharing about all those great hikes, your "BIG" catch of the day , play some horseshoes, maybe a little bumperpool, ...perhaps enjoying some family/friend time by the fire, reading, watching a great movie with some popcorn and having that hot chocolate or glass of wonderful wine! BBQ in the sunny clear mtn.air...nothing quite like it!

This is the time to refresh, relax and renew, exactly what our Little Lodge offers.... A cozy cabin, games, family, friends, heart warming times full of unforgettable memories, a little BBQ, take a walk to the lake, watch some great movies on a large TV, hear the birds and feed the squirrels... your heart will smile... Our Little Lodge is ready for you to enjoy the peacefulness of quite Boulder Bay, cool sunny days, chilly star filled nights, 'family fun;) We invite you to stay with us for the most memoriable time in Big Bear! We hope to be able to share all our 'Little Lodge' has to offer with you, family & friends!

The garage has been converted into a playroom with carpet, TV/DVD, comfy chairs, bumperpool table and darts. Fun for the kids or a 'man cave!'

All 3 bedrooms have TV's and DVD players; the bunk room has some children's toys and books. We are kid friendly , everyone is welcome. The living room and upstairs master both have large sliding glass doors and many windows to enjoy the views! There is also a full size bed in the window seat (den next to the living room) complete w/ linens, pillows and blankets. Each room is decorated in a cabin/mountain theme w/ a splash of Tuscan thrown in :) One room even has that romantic touch!

This cabin has been in our family since 1963 when my parents built the first 700 sq. ft. In 2009 we completed a total remodel and additions to bring it up to 1700 sq. ft. We now have 3 generations of family memories, working on the 4th, and would love for you to share those w/ us and create your own!

Since the entire cabin is fairly new, all the linens, bedding, and towels are newly purchased in 2015/2016, we are constantly "renewing.".. Kitchen is completely stocked with most everything you would need. We provide guest soaps and lotions also! The appliances are fairly new, the washer and dryer also. For those of you who enjoy the old, we have saved a few relics. The brick fireplace in the dinning area is the original; we put a wood stove in and large comfy chair to sit 'by the fire!' Dining table seats 7 and there are 5 bar stools.......

So please take a real look at our ad. As mentioned earlier would love to share w/ you! Fun in the sun, snow; whatever you enjoy...BBQ on the covered deck while watching the kids play and hearing the sounds of laughter! Memories :) Maybe a little horseshoes in the snow, it's been done!!!???

***Note... Fall 2014 we added an additional 1/2 bath and additional 100 sq. ft. that will replace the twin size bed in the window seat to a full size. Plus a little more space for those kiddies to 'camp out in sleeping bags' if they choose!***

****Free WiFi in every room.****Ample parking for 4 cars and your boat! 3 bikes available for your use also...summer only.

and growing, 2 grandchildren, adding a daughter in Aug..! We live in OC w/ 1 son in San Francisco. There are 4 SDSU graduates, 1 LBSU, 1 Loyola grad and a University of Oregon Duck grad, and a Cal grad!!! This cabin has been in my family since the 60's...we remodeled all of it and added on 900 sq ft and a garage in 2009! So for 3 generations Big Bear has been in our blood. I learned to ski here as did all my children, and grandchildren...We truly hope your stay w/ us is perfect..lots of love and care has gone into our's pretty special to us and ask that you care for it as carefully as we do. We want it to be around for generations to come!

Linda purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Linda chose Boulder Bay

Our cabin has been in my family since the 60's. My husband and I have taken the original structure, updated it, remodeled and added the 900 sq ft. The original footprint still exists. There is a picture that tells the entire story! There is definitely a special reason we keep coming back!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Little Lodge is located near Boulder Bay. My children have fished there, kayak and bike. We take great walks around the lake; walk to the small coffee shop for breakfasts. It's a great location for some R & R; also just a short drive to the Village and resorts for that fun. It's wonderful to come back after along fun filled day out. BBQ, swing on the front porch swing, play horseshoes etc...!Love to listen to the sounds of the pines at night, look at the all the stars and smell the fireplace burning...can't beat it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Went on lots of walks, antiquing and shopping in the Village, played lots of games, drank lots of wine..Your cabin is very welcoming and inviting; comfortable and convenient. Every amenity you could ever need was available to us! Our memeories will never be forgotten! Taken from the guestbook :)

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This Little Lodge provided everything needed for us. We had an amazing weekend getaway with the whole family. Friendly, warm, cozy atmosphere meant fun family time. We enjoyed the village as well which is close by. Linda could not have been more helpful. We will definitely return again. The best!

Beautiful Cabin and Spacious for Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is lovely, which can accomdadate a family of 10! We had great time with our kids during game night. Most of the popular board games and amenities are provided; we did not have to drive to the store or market to buy anything for our stay. We cooked a lot at the cabin and it had all the cookwares, glasswares, and utensils we needed. The cabin is very close to the lake; it’s literally a two-minute walk from the cabin. The only negative thing about this cabin is that the Internet/Wi-Fi is sluggish and does not reach the entire cabin. Some areas are spotty. It’s not a huge deal for us as we like the kids to be more interactive instead of streaming and surfing the internet on the their phones. Overall, the experience was great! We would definitely rent this cabin again, if we need a place to stay for the weekend!

Happy Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely stay! Comfy and beautifully decorated home, and amazingly well equipped kitchen tools! We had three families with young kids. Kids had a lot of fun with the toys and cable TV available. Linda is very responsive to our request and made our stay even more convenient. Will choose again if revisiting Big Bear.

Clean and cozy cabin in the trees.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay over Thanksgiving weekend. Cozy furnishings in cabin gave it a comfortable vibe. Kids loved the bumper pool and horseshoes out back. We also took a bike ride (bikes provided) and several walks during our stay. Really liked that there was an open field across the street. Linda (owner) was easy to get a hold of and left us a treat upon arrival. Would definitely stay again.
