INTRODUCING LIL' GREEN BEAR CABIN! A short term private rustic rental mountain cabin legally registered with the county of San Bernardino as such. Carefully read each and every one of VRBO's authenticated reviews on the cabin, WE ARE PROUD TO BE THE RECIPIENTS OF A 98% 5 STAR RATING PERCENTAGE WITH OVER 100 REVIEWS AND ONE OF JUST A FEW VRBO LISTINGS GARNERING THE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER "WONDERFUL" STATUS!!

If your coming to Big Bear, come stay in Rustic, organic, natural Mountain Log cabin living, not simple suburban architecture. YOU CAN GET THAT DOWN THE HILL! Lil' Green Bear Cabin has often been described as something right out of a fairy tale or childhood fable! A rustic mountain log cabin that delivers exactly what it shows. Come experience Big Bear the way it's supposed to be experienced, a classic log cabin, mountain decor, seclusion, away from the crowds. Lil Green Bear Cabin awaits and NEVER disappoints!

LIL' GREEN BEAR CABIN, a 1000sf Sierra Style Log Cabin sits quietly nestled just 3 short blocks from the San Bernardino National Forest, 2 miles from the lake & amazing hiking trails, 3 miles from shopping, 4 miles from the slopes and 6 miles from the village! Away from the tourist buses of Big Bear Lake. Big Bear City gives you a chance to truly get away and live like the mountain locals for the weekend? A refreshing walk around the block is an experience in itself, one that you won't forget! There is a maximum capacity of 4 adults (up to 2 additional children are fine).

Completely renovated in 2009 with a brand new roof and wall heater system (NO CENTRAL HEAT AND NO AC) installed in July of 2017 , floor to ceiling knotty pine with 12 inch exposed strewn logs running through the living room ceiling, a classic Maltby fireplace, 2 nicely sized bedrooms with King & Queen beds sitting on rustic, log bed frames.*PLEASE NOTE THAT THE KING BED IN MASTER IS A VERY, VERY FIRM TEMPERPEDIC MATTRESS. A nice sized single bathroom, but please note there is no bath tub. For the folks who have a little trouble relaxing and need to stay close to the office, the cabin is equipt with a 30mbtys, broadband, wireless WIFI router, so the laptop/tablet can stay handy! The mountain theme decor has been praised by countless reviews (visitors). Fully stocked large CHEFS KITCHEN complete with absolutely everything you need to whip up any meal and something rarely found in smaller cabins up here: A REAL KITCHEN TABLE with high back leather dining room chairs! Custom made of reclaimed pine and large enough to seat 6. On so many occasions this is not the case, you are forced to sit on bar stools or TV trays while sitting in the living room!! A custom made leather pull out sectional, 42 inch LCD television with a BASIC CHARTER CABLE PACKAGE (another 36 inch LCD mounted in the master bedroom for the romantic couple who want to stay in bed all day while the wind blows and/or snow falls). Enjoy a glass of wine while snuggling in front of the large, maltby style fireplace on a chilly night while the avocado wood crackles.

The rustic, natural grounds are again well noted throughout the reviews, so many massive pine & evergreen trees on the property and 2 of the most perfect 40 foot Holiday trees ever sit in the front yard! Really special! The front yard boasts natural landscaping with the back yard offering a cute little park like setting, completely fenced in for piece of mind with the little ones (kids) with some very cute decorative pieces that again are fantastic for children. This cabin is extremely kid friendly! Two great porches/decks, the front porch gives you that classic experience of sitting out on 2 great redwood adarondak chairs and simply enjoy the peace and quite, while star gazing into the renown star-lit Big Bear sky. The back deck comes with a large circular redwood table & chairs and either a charcoal grill or propane BBQ (no guarantee's which one) You can go out for dinner anytime, but starting up the grill on a chilly night in a mountain log cabin with a bottle of Red wine while the steaks that's a city get-a-way and a priceless memory you won't forget.

The property is motion sensor lit (front and back yard/driveway) for late night arrivals, a proper freshly slurred, asphalt driveway, not gravel or dirt, which handles up to 3 vehicles. We have put our heart into this cabin and are very proud of it. It is professionally managed from bedding to towels it will be delivered to you in good, clean condition with all the fresh conveniences of home. We have raised our 10 year old son here, so again we pride ourselves on the cabin being kid friendly whether it be the lil back yard 'play park', the horse shoe pit or front yard circular grass play track, we have thought of everything to assure you that upon the completion of your stay you will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. The greatest compliment we have ever received was in a review one of your guests posted in the spring of 2012 (see review section) simply stating that 'This is not like staying in a rental cabin at all, but more like staying at a friends home!'

We proudly offer you....... LIL GREEN BEAR CABIN!

Randelle Green purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Randelle Green chose Big Bear

It has been a dream of my wife and I to own a log cabin up in the mountains of Southern California, so in 2010 we purchased Lil Green Bear cabin. We enjoyed it ourselves for the first couple years and just now (1/25/2012) have decided to put the cabin into the vacation rental market. We have made sure the cabin has all the conveniences of home. It is our goal to build a reputable business out of sharing our lil piece of the mountain with others. We are well aware that rental homes are built on referrals and we hope each and every guest is more than satisfied and will keep coming back for more. Enjoy your stay at Lil Green Bear Cabin!!

What makes this cabin unique

What really sets Lil Green Bear Cabin apart is the front and back yard space! Professionally landscaped in the summer/spring allow the most beautiful flowers to blossom. The property sits back to allow an actual front yard for the kids to play, which is also fenced (log) to create boundaries. We have a 9 yr old and for him to be outside running around the front yard where we can watch him from the redwood adarondak chairs on the porch is priceless. The same goes for the backyard, a totally enclosed back yard 'play park'. People forget to think about the grounds of the property, who wants to stay inside all day, you come up the mountain for the fresh air and to feel the altitude. Parking is excellent at the cabin, something not always the case. A traditional black asphalt drive way allows you to park conveniently as opposed to some gravel pull up area! Motion sensor lights in the front and back make it safe, and simple for late night check ins. Try finding your way to a new address and foreign place in the pitch black! Dining room, again so many 2 bedroom cabins don't have one, just some bar stools or even worse TV trays for your dinner. LGB has a traditional custom made dining table which comfortably sits 6, it is made from reclaimed pine. The bedrooms are surprisingly large with actual sitting areas, classic mountain log bed frames. The inside was completely remodeled in 2010 with a wide open floorplan, chefs kitchen, and 12 inch (width) exposed logs running through the living room ceiling. A wonderful maltby fireplace. The unique benefits to this 1,000sf 2 bedroom cabin are endless. We simply encourage you to compare the photo's, inside and out, read ALL reviews, VRBO is a legitimate service. And the pictures tell it all.

Clean, safe, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean and neat. The master bedroom has a memory foam mattress so if you cannot sleep on this type of bed, make sure you are comfortable sleeping in the smaller bedroom. We stayed during an extreme heat wave and the inside temp. of the cabin reached 84 degrees with little to no breeze through windows (there was a box fan provided but did little to assist during the day, and this is not typical weather for Big Bear). We ended up cutting our stay in half due to the hot weather, but overall the cabin was nice. The owner communicates well and answered all questions from the very beginning of correspondence, he also accommodated an early check-in which we greatly appreciated.

Owner's Response: Thank you Priscilla for your kind comments and 5 STAR REVIEW! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. With July being the hottest July on record in SoCal, even Big Bear is/was feeling the heat. As stated and like the majority of cabins in Big Bear there is no AC and rarely a need for it, I know the cabin did get warm and we so apologize. See you next time. Randelle & Gabriela Green (owners)

Very quaint

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cabin. Everything was as described. A lot of small details that give the cabin a homey feel. It's conveniently located within walking distance of a large grocery store. However, if you want to get to the lake, you have to drive. If we get back to the area, we would definitely stay here again.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Lil Green Bear Cabin for a birthdays. This is our 5th year doing so and first time at this Cabin. The property was wonderful. Slept great with such a comfortable bed. Enjoyed home cooked meals by the fire place and coffee on the front porch. We loved everything about this property and can't wait to see it again with some snow. The owners are great and quick on responses. We even were allowed a late check out. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay.
