Convenient access to outdoor activities such as mountain biking, zip lining hiking, golf, horseback riding fishing, sailing or wakeboarding. The Estate is off Fox farm and is 2 minutes from the market and 3 minutes from both ski hills and 4 minutes from the village where there are boutique shops restaurants, theatres and a bowling alley. Lot next door leads to great hiking. This convenient location is only a couple minutes to the slopes at Bear Mountain and a few minutes to the village, skiing or restaurants.

Although Country Barn Estate is not licensed for events, we ARE licensed for weddings and events for up to 100 guests one mile down the road at Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn, a property we also own. Apples B&B is a uniquely charming, two-story Victorian with craftsman style that provides a romantic garden setting surrounded by tall pines and wedding Gazebo, the perfect destination venue for weddings. Apples Inn offers a Wedding Suite, in-room massage and delicious home cooking! If you get married in the Big Bear area, please consider my estate for your lodging and Apples Bed & Breakfast as your venue.

As of September 2016, the Country Barn Estate is undergoing construction that will expand its occupancy to 26 guests in early 2017. Stay tuned for more details as they become available!

If this property is booked, I also own the nearby Whispering Pines Estate, please see VRBO #336695.

Owner info

About the owner: My name is Laurie Kagan. My husband Spencer and I live in Big Bear, own two rental estates. ( Please visit Whispering Pines VRBO #336695). In April 2016, we purchased nearby Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn! We are licensed to hold weddings and events in the beautiful gardens of Apples B&B for up to 100 guests. Please inquire within if you would like more details. Please note, we are NOT licensed for events at Country Barn. Spencer and I are also the owners and founders of Kagan Publishing and Professional Development in San Clemente, California. In addition to writing books and conducting workshops, our Trainers provides professional development workshops for teachers internationally. In 2015, we founded the Kagan Charitable Foundation, a public non-profit 501c3 in order to further support education.

Why the Owner Chose Fox Farm, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
This historical property is ideal for families with children who can take advantage of the play areas and game rooms. Also ideal for groups of skiiers who want to relax and enjoy the BBQ and Spa after a day on the slopes.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Please note, construction at the very back of the property is currently ongoing at the Country Barn Estate. In 2017, the property will expand to a total occupancy of 26. We ARE licensed for weddings in the gardens for up to 100 guests at Apples Bed & Breakfast Inn in Big Bear, one mile away. We are NOT licensed for weddings at this rental property.
