About the property




INTRODUCING LIL' GREEN BEAR CABIN! A short term private home rental legally registered with the county of San Bernardino as such. Look closely at the property photo's, expand them for a closer look, compare the photo's with any and every other 2 bedroom cabin you are considering and decide for yourself, consider the grounds of the property as well, you are not going to just sit in the cabin your entire visit!! Carefully read each and every one of VRBO's authenticated reviews on the cabin, WE ARE PROUD TO BOAST OVER 70 FIVE STAR (HIGHEST POSSIBLE) RAVING REVIEWS WITH JUST 2 FOUR STAR VISIT'S!!!!!!

If your coming to Big Bear, come stay in Classic 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 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 and perfect grounds, 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, 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. 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, brand new 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 avacado wood crackles.

The 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 is professionally landscaped with the most beautiful summer flower beds around, that's right an actual front yard for the kids to play.(SUMMER ONLY*SEE POSSIBLE NOTES FOR DESERT LANDSCAPING "NO GRASS/FLOWERS" TO ADHERE TO WATER RESTRICTIONS) The back yard is a 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 a large BBQ/Smoker (propane) for you guys who think you can get busy on the grill! 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 spotless condition with all the clean, fresh conveniences of home. We have a 8 year old son 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.

So amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and property as a whole is beautiful! The inside of the cabin was decorated with a cabin theme and had xmas decorations. It was so comfortable and cozy. We received a call from Randalle to check in on us which was very thoughtful. Our kids had the best time and we could not be happier as with the snow storm outside we were trapped in the most amazing place. Thank you for the hospitality, look forward to stay here again in the future!

Beautiful, lovely cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful cabin! Our party of two couples truly enjoyed this beautiful cabin! Mornings on the rear patio, BBQ in the evenings, detailed decor that was an obvious delight of the owner. A true joy of a weekend. Perfect space for a group of four with a roomy kitchen. The neighborhood is quiet and so incredibly peaceful. The only sound was the wind blowing through the trees. Idyllic.

Some in our party did experience a snug fit in the shower. Other than that, we loved our stay. Thank you so much.

Cozy, Clean & Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin if you're looking to get away from the city or just looking to getaway! My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lil Green Cabin for a weekend Summer getaway in August. This cabin was perfect and just as described. It was in a quiet location close to the lake/village/Snow Summit; everything was just a very short drive away. It was VERY clean and comfortable and we really liked how cozy the cabin felt. Randelle, the owner was very nice and helpful - we had absolutely no issues during or stay, from check-in to check-out. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this cabin for a couple or small family. Thank you Randelle, for sharing your cabin with us!

After reading the description of this cabin I thought I had a good idea of what to expect. When I arrived I found everything as expected. The cabin was clean and comfortable, the owner was responsive and the overall feeling was welcoming.

Great experience.

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Randelle, and his, cabin was great! There were tons on amenities that made the cabin a great place to stay at. Cabin was well decorated, functional, and the furniture was comfortable. The shower was small (I'm 6' 4" and it was a bit of a challenge to shower) and would be tough to bathe kids. The internet and TV worked great. Fantastic stay!
