Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

The house on Big Bear Pen Mountain is the perfect get-away for couples, families or even a small group. We have used all in the past and because of floorplan accomodates all easily. The views are wonderful! This is a great house for families because of the flat yard and porches....easy to entertain children. The mountain top is very easy to navigate walking and bike riding. The furnishings are beautiful yet easy to maintain and the kitchen well stocked to fix great meals for a crowd. There are several very good groceries and markets in Highland's...so we enjoy coooking and grilling versus dining out with a group. Excellent cuisine abounds though...if you decide to venture off your mountain top retreat!! Comfortable beds and complete silence make for a perfect night's sleep. A very special place to spend a romantic get away, family get together or small retreat!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this beautifully decorated, well equipped home duing Thanksgiving week. The views from this home on top of Big Bear Pen Mountain are spectacular. There is so much room in the dining room, we were all able to eat together comfortably. The Murray's were so helpful and pleasant to work with in making this a very memorable holiday family vacation. The location is very conveniently located, close to town and easy driving up to the top of the mountain. Driving up and down the mountain was even easy with the 1" snowfall we woke up to on Thanksgiving morning! The Grands loved it! Hiking or long easy walks were right out the door. The wood burning fire place warmed the living room every night. It was so roomy and cozy too! Thank you Ben and Melissa for sharing your piece of heaven. We loved it.

Perfect for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Attractive, well laid out, and well equipped house on top of Big Bear Pen mountain. Go down the mountain and you are in downtown Highlands with excellent shopping, restaurants, etc. Great hikes, zip lines and inner tube sledding enjoyed by the more adventurous members of our family. Garage bedroom/bath offers complete privacy and quiet as well. House excellent for entertaining if you have friends in the area.

We have stayed at this property several times and always had a great time. There is a huge yard for the kids to play and the house is updated and very comfortable. The house is 2 minutes to town and has great mountain views. This is the perfect house for families.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend this fall with our family and dogs. The house is spacious and immaculate. The fron tlawn is great for kids to play and the views of the sunrise/sunset are unbelievable. We have stayed in several homes in the highlands and this one is a great find.
