Property description

Whispering Pines is NOT licensed for weddings or events, but we ARE licensed for events for up to 100 guests one mile down the road at Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn, a property we also own. See bottom of listing or inquire for details.

Come and relax at this 4,000 square foot beautiful estate!

There is plenty of room for your friends and family to enjoy this spectacular Estate, which has more than 60 trees on 1.2 acres, including a trickling stream and Gazebo in the backyard, which is fenced in for children.

Enjoy the spacious open floor plan with Gourmet Kitchen and two dining rooms for cooking or bringing home take-out. Warm up next to the crackling fireplace, watch the Big Screen TV. The Estate comes fully equipped with clean linens, towels, cooking utensils, spices, appliances, 3 TVs, Spa, Pool Table and Internet.

There are three large bedrooms including the Master Suite, which is located downstairs on the ground floor. The Master Suite has a California King Bed, large walk-in closet, and an en-suite Master bath which has a Spa bathtub and walk-in shower. Open the sliding patio doors of your Master Suite and onto your own deck to enjoy a Hot Tub Spa under the Whispering Pines.

Upstairs there are 2 large Bedrooms and a Loft. One bedroom has a Queen bed and the other bedroom has one double bed and bunk bed. These two bedrooms have their own separate sink areas and share a Jack and Jill bathroom.

The upstairs Loft area has a Queen pull out bed, electric fireplace, TV area and a game table to play cards and board games. The living room also has a Queen pull-out bed. We also keep a top-of-the-line blow up bed in the upstairs closet.

Strategically located, you will be just 1 mile to Big Bear Lake and minutes to ski resorts, golf course, and downtown stores. Beautiful, serene setting. It is all waiting for you only a couple of hours away! (From LA or Orange County) Plenty of parking space for cars, boats, and RVs, right outside on the large, dual-entry driveway.

Although Whispering Pines is not licensed for events, we are licensed for events for up to 100 guests one mile down the road at Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn, a property we also own. Apples B&B is a uniquely charming, two-story Victorian with craftsman style that provides a romantic garden setting surrounded by tall pines and wedding Gazebo, the perfect destination venue for weddings. Apples Inn offers a Wedding Suite, in-room massage and delicious home cooking! If you get married in the Big Bear area, please consider my estate for your lodging and Apples Bed & Breakfast as your venue.

Activities and Attractions in Big Bear...
Welcome to Big Bear Lake, California. Big Bear is a small community that sits in the mountains above the city of San Bernardino. You can hike in the beautiful National Forest or grab your bike for a trip on one of the many riding trails. If you want to get wet, take a boat on the lake for a leisurely afternoon of fishing or swimming. Plenty of places to breathe the fresh air and enjoy the blue skies. If you like skiing, snowboarding or just playing in the snow, there are two ski resorts and two snow play areas for the whole family to enjoy. There are several restaurants to choose from ranging from fast food to fancy dining. If you're looking for a peaceful quiet afternoon, grab a hot dog and head to the lake or local park to read and relax!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a international trainer teaching teachers and trainers worldwide the latest teaching techniques. I love the mountains and taught skiing in Lake Tahoe for 18 years. Currently I am married and have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. I raced Hobie cats on the US Team for 13 years and enjoy sailing, jet skis and segways. My husband and I collect antiques and love spending time at our home in Big Bear. In April, 2016 we purchased Apples Bed & Breakfast one mile down the road from this Estate. Although Whispering Pines is not licensed for events, we ARE licensed for events for up to 100 guests one mile down the road at Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn, a property we also own. Apples B&B is a uniquely charming, two-story Victorian with craftsman style that provides a romantic garden setting surrounded by tall pines and wedding Gazebo, the perfect destination venue for weddings. Apples Inn offers a Wedding Suite, in-room massage and delicious home cooking! If you get married in the Big Bear area, please consider my estate for your lodging and Apples Bed & Breakfast as your venue.

Why the Owner Chose Fox Farm, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
I wanted people to enjoy the beauty and fresh air the mountain has to offer. Big Bear is the perfect quick get away with great restaurants, theaters and shopping. All of my family loves Big Bear.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The beauty of one of the homes built by the number one builder in Big Bear. The large two story windows overlooking a lovely landscaped yard with running brook. Great kitchen for all to pitch in to help cook. You will seem like you have died and gone to heaven.
