Overview

About the property

2 BR, 2 BA, 2 Story Townhouse

There are lots of average rentals available in this area, however with our unit you are renting a 'Home' not just a condo or house. Please read our fabulous reviews below! Our 2 story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath Unit is beautifully furnished & very well equipped. We supply you with Free High Speed Internet (100 Mbps), FREE unlimited Local & Nationwide as well as Long Distance calls to Canada & Mexico, along with our New Sony Blu-ray / Internet Audio Video unit! Warmly decorated with lots of accent lights, which gives you a 'Mountain Feeling'. 20 foot stone fireplace with enclosed, easy to operate gas insert with timer & blower, granite counter tops, hotel quality carpeting & ‘black-out’ drapes. Our well stocked kitchen is supplied with everything you could possibly need to make any kind of dinner. A gas grill is located at the deck outside.

Serene setting. Nestled by the trees and adjacent to the National Forest and the NEWLY designed ‘Snow Summit Adventure Park' at Snow Summit Mountain Resort’! This mountain condo is located almost in Snow Summit's parking lot, just feet away from your front door. This means that in the Winter when you wake up and it snowed all night, you just pick up your skis, put on your boots and walk to the main lodge and spend the day skiing! No shoveling, no snow chains or frustration needed. Just a day of fun and pleasure.

In the Summer you walk to the Scenic Sky Chair or the Bike Park'. You can also take one of the many hiking trails or numerous Mountain Biking Trails. Big Bear Lake is only about a 1/2 mile down the street - with the swim beach, boat rentals or Lake Tours. Access into your mountain condo is level from the driveway to the front door. Much less chance for slipping and sliding. If you have to bring in groceries or luggage, you have approximately 50 feet to your front door. You are only 2.5 miles to the village with movie theaters, many restaurants and lots of shopping.

About Bob Brickman

We purchased this property because we lived in Riverside at the time and this was only 75 minutes from our home. In 2003 we purchased a hotel in Pinetop, Arizona and moved there. Aside from being in the hotel business we also really like the vacation industry. We found that some of our customers were interested in longer stays for either work or vacation purposes; something that allowed them a larger space and cooking facilities that our Hotel did not offer. We decided to fill that void by purchasing two more vacation condos at 'The Pines in Show Low' and another larger condo at the 'Sports Village' complex close to the Pinetop Lakes Country Club in Pinetop, AZ, which are also available for rent: VRBO 273907 & VRBO 412670

Bob Brickman purchased this townhome in 1988

Why Bob Brickman chose Summit Estates

It is close to all Southern California Metropolitan areas as well as the desert Palm Springs Area. The big attraction of course is the close proximity to the Snow Summit Mountain Resort for both Winter & Summer outdoor activities. Although we are in a condominium (townhouse) project, it is extremely quiet here in the Summer.

What makes this townhome unique

This mountain two story Townhouse has been completely upgraded and is located almost in Snow Summit's parking lot, just feet away from your front door. This means that if you wake up and it snowed all night, you just pick up your skis, put on your boots and walk to the main lodge and spend the day skiing! No shoveling, no snow chains or frustration needed. Just a day of fun and pleasure.

Access into your mountain Townhouse is level from the driveway to the front door. Much less chance for slipping and sliding. If you have to bring in groceries or luggage, you have approx. 25 feet to your front door. You are only 2.5 miles to the village with movie theaters, many restaurants and lots of shopping.

A Peaceful Retreat With Everything You Could Possibly Need

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, feels like home from the moment you walk in the door. Other than bringing your own food, there is nothing you could possibly want for in this well appointed townhome. Gas fireplace eliminates the need to schlep wood, fully outfitted kitchen allowed for a properly prepared Thanksgiving meal. Beds were very, very comfortable, and the selection of cable channels as well as the popular video on demand channels provides an excellent variety of entertainment. Plenty of towels in both bathrooms as well as liquid soap, shampoo, and conditioner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will not hesitate to stay here again at the next opportunity we have to visit the Big Bear area.

Awesome place!!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at this cabin. Very clean, comfortable and cozy! Equipped with everything (dishes and a lot of blankets). Close to Snow Summit Mountain, no need to take your car, you can walk about 5 minutes or less to the entrance of the mountain. Hope we can come back soon :)

Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant visit. The home was nicely decorated with Christmas lights, the fireplace was beautiful, and it was a really great value for such a big space. It's within walking distance to Snow Summit, it comes with all the basics you might need, and the master bedroom even has blanket warmers! We also made use of the air popper for popcorn... so yummy! It was a wonderful winter getaway :)

Close to all the action

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little condo, decorated for winter even in the summer! Seemed to bring the outdoors inside. Only slight problem with the maid service not knowing our arrival time, but we did get to meet the maid and she was awesome! We didn't have to ride our bikes far to get to the bike park. We used the grill-great dinners were had! The landlord was responsive and very nice. No complaints!

Clean, comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I wouldnt hesitate to stay in this condo again. The condo is so "cozy" that it looks like the homeowner left the premises five minutes before we got there. All of their own personal effects are out and keep the home looking lived in and not sterile. There are many knick knacks in the condo, and they arent all accumulated with dust, thanks to their excellent housekeeper, Cynthia. The tv has every station imaginable, and the owners didnt skimp out on mattresses and luxuriant bedding. The bathrooms are very clean (even the baseboards, I checked). The refrigerator and appliances are all clean and in working condition. The only thing I would change is to clean some of the over accumulated "stuff" out of the kitchen cabinets so renters can have a place to put their dry groceries during their stay. The condo complex was quiet and the condo maintained its cool temperature without air conditioning, even though it got up to the high 80s the weekend we were there. Thanks Bob, Vicki and Cynthia for a pleasant experience. I have stayed in Big Bear before, paid more money, and had a lesser trip.
