About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)


Our Big Bear Rental Cabin is just 10 minutes from the ski slopes. Located 1/4mi from Marina, a short walk to the Village, 5-10 min drive to Snow Summit & Bear Mountain.

This cabin is on two levels with open Kitchen-Dining-Great Room; all with wonderful lake view. You are always aware that you are at the lake in the mountains!

The Great Room features wood beams across the vaulted pine-knot ceiling and two large, comfy sectional sofas in front of the wood burning fireplace - maybe roast marshmallows tonight? This room also includes the 55' cable TV, DVD player and Surround Sound System Speakers (home theatre).

The Kitchen offers new appliances: dishwasher, range, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender and is also fully stocked with new cookware, utensils, and dishes to make your stay feel like a home away from home – perfect for cook-outs and large family dinners!

After a full day of fun, the spa sits on the fenced/private backyard ready to bubble your aches from the day away. Or, relax on the all-around deck and watch the colors of the sunset at play on the lake while the ducks chatter about their day’s activities. Life, as you had known it, looks quite spectacularly different. In the Great Room enjoy the roaring fire in the fireplace to roast marshmallows before retiring to bed and ready to take you to your sugar plum dreams.

With 4 bedrooms, 2 king beds, one queen bed, 2 Bunk Beds (2 Full & 2 Twin beds). A Den/Game room (bring your game console and enjoy). Foosball table and Ping Pong/Table Tennis in the garage enjoy the action with family and friends. Fully equipped laundry room with Washer & Dryer.

Cabin is centrally located, convenient to all that Big Bear Lake offers while located on a quiet street, providing a relaxing, get-away atmosphere.


Big Bear Marina is about 1/4mi. The Marina offers lake tours and rents out kayaks, jet skis, boats, etc. Public Lake access is available right next to this marina where I've taken my grandson fishing and he caught a big one!

About a 10 min drive away is Pine Knot Marina with a paddle boat tour, para-sailing and, of course, rents jet skis and boats. Guests have remarked about the fun they have enjoyed here.

The Bowling Barn is a couple of blocks away with Large Screen Sports TV, Pool Tables, Arcade Games and, of course, Bowling. Glow Bowling is especially fun that kicks off at 8:30p (M-F) and 7:30p (S-S).

The Village is a couple of blocks away with nice ice cream & candy store. The Village also offers 2 movie theaters with a total of 5 screens always showing first rate movies.

About a 5 min drive is the Summit Sky Chair that takes you from 7000 base to 8200 feet in the summer. They have the summer trails set up for the mountain biking or explore the hiking trails or just walk around and enjoy the scenery. Of course, in the winter it is a skier's and snow boarder's paradise.

Alpine Slide is ~ couple of miles away (10 min drive). In the summer, it is a very popular place to stay cool in its water slide and also has gocarts, minature golf and the bobsled. In the winter, the crazy fun is to slide down the snow covered hill in truck size inner tubes and also enjoy the bobsleds.

A little further away - maybe a 5 min drive is Meadow Park - popular for its swim beach, tennis courts, and volleyball sand court.

The Discovery Center, run by the Forest Service, provides hiking permits and offers, for a low cost, kayaking and canoe tours, and craft classes for kids; for free, forest classes. It is located across the lake on north shore.

Moonridge Animal Park about a 10 min drive is home to artic animals no longer able to live in the wild. Mama Grizzly and her 2 children were relocated from Yellowstone after they received 3 strikes for stealing easy access food are an example of the interesting animals in this park located across the street from Bear Mountain.

Guests have shared their horseback riding fun at Baldwin Stables about a 20 min drive from the cabin. They thought it was the best.

Now is the time for that mountain vacation you've been waiting for!

Cabin beautiful great place.

  • 3 of 5

Nice cabin.. we got a great time but we looked a place with hot tub. We report hut tub not working and maintenance fixed at my 3 day around 9 pm. So we used only the last day. I wonder if I can we be compensated because the hot tub was not working and was repaired until the third day of my stay .. we could only use it one day of the 4 days that we rent. Cabin without hot tub normally I can find it at lower price.

Owner's Response: thanks for staying in our cabin. we are looking with the maintenance company on the reason the reset of the spa happened on your 3rd day (normally they are so fast but maybe because you arrived on Christmas eve which is the busiest week of the whole year in big bear?)

The house is beautiful and very cozy. The whole family loved it . It was a great experience the only down side was that the Internet was slow , DVD player in living room didn't work . & the dish network had no signal all weekend . Other than that everything was perfect . Heater works perfectly. Would recommend this home for a big family .

large living room and dinner, everything went as expected, the only thing the spa had too much Clorox. I would suggest taking your own cooking pots also.

Menchies Staff Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We went from May/26-30 for a company retreat. The house/cabin is marvelous and so close to the center of activities, city, etc.

The lake is just across the road and the marina is 5 minutes walking distance.

The house is beautiful and has everything that anyone will need for a great vacation.

The spa is also a major plus after a long hiking day.

All in all we are very satisfied and will repeat this year over year again.
