About Diane

My husband and I are both Interior designers. We have enjoyed creating a cozy comfortable home in the best location in Big Bear. We love outdoor sports. We have a Pomeranian, (and know how important it is to be able to bring your pets with you) a large family and lots of friends. We love to travel. Most of all we love spending time with our family and friends playing card games and pool, cooking and just relaxing telling fun stories of the great times we have had in BEAUTIFUL BIG BEAR.

Diane purchased this house in 1986

Why Diane chose Big Bear Lake

I started going to Big Bear when I was a little girl with my parents. My husband and I love going to our home in Big Bear. We have had many fun parties there with our FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets are absolutely beautiful from the deck. We love to travel and we have not seen a better sunset from any of the many places we have gone. The FORTH OF JULY fireworks are on the lake right in front of the deck. It's the best seat in the house. There is plenty of space for playing card games with family and friends or playing a game of pool. Our family is musical so we really enjoy signing and playing the piano. The home is close to so many restaurants, theaters and shopping it makes it hard to choose where to go next. The home is also close to the marina, launch ramp and rental docks. Also only 3 minutes from Snow Summit. It is great to just sit relaxing in the pines and looking at the lake or sitting by the fire reading a good book. The skiing at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain is great for all levels. There is a lot of off the street parking, room for your boat and car. Snow removal is available in the winter. Because the property is fairly flat it makes it easy to get in and out in the winter. A covered walkway goes to the entry doors with only a couple of steps which makes it handicapped accessible. The floor plan is great and makes for good cozy family fun. Eagle Point is terrific for walking and bike riding. At any given time you can see some breed of dog walking with its master. You will enjoy the beautiful homes on the point on your walk. We hope you will love our home as much as we do and want to come back often.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We felt at home the minute we walked in the front door. The owners were great to work with. We loved the piano, the pool table and the veiw is fabulous. All the bedrooms are spacious and the beds are confortable. The home was neat and clean with everything we needed. Our family can't wait to visit again.

This was our second year in a row that we gathered together as a family at this home. Obviously the place is a winner in our book. Great location and the place offers all the amenities that we enjoy. We would definitely consider coming back in the future. Stan and Cheryl P.S. We enjoyed meeting Diane, the owner

Beautiful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely time at this place. It was very clean and Diane was a great hostess. She responded quickly (even on a holiday) and made sure we had everything we needed. The home was perfect for my grown children and their families. The view was stunning. It would have been nice to have towels for the hot tub. We all enjoyed the deck and pool table. We would stay there again when visiting Big Bear.

Owner's Response: I have the best guests. I do tell them to bring their favorite pillow if they have one and beach towels for the spa in the welcome letter. We supply fluffy big bath towels but not big beach towels for the spa.

Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable for our group of 11 from ages 18mos. to 61. It was clean and nicely decorated. The owner had highchairs and booster seats that we could use for the little ones, the flat screen tvs all worked well, 3 fireplaces, there was a pool table and jacuzzi for the adults, swingset/slide on the side yard, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes & cooking utensils, a view of the lake from the back deck and bedrooms upstairs. We were hoping for snow but even without the snow there was plenty to do that was close by. We had to wait over an hour to check in since the cleaning crew was delayed but the owner said that we could stay as late as we wanted on the day we checked out which was nice. I would definitely rent this house again.

We enjoyed our 4 day stay. Beautiful setting, great deck and hot tub. House needs some updates especially in plumbing and dish washer. The owner, Diane, is very nice.

Wonderful location with the view on the lake

  • 4 of 5

The location is beautiful. We enjoyed the lake view a lot, including sunsets. Park nearby with public tennis courts, basketball hoops, etc. The house has everything you would need including pool table. However, the house looks and feels very aged.

Comfortable Home with Great Space

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for my birthday and had my siblings and adult children up for the celebration. We all had a great time. The house is comfortable and is exactly like the pictures. It also has a lot of great space for different people to do different things. The pool table was a big hit. We did a lot of cooking in the kitchen and that turned out well. The deck is very large and nice.
