About Bill Black

My wife and I have been taking our kids skiing and snowboarding since they were little tykes! They are great kids and now both in their twenties. We are an active family, so we wanted a great location that offered an all season escape to the mountains with a truly wonderful experience. We love to come to Big Bear because each season has so much to offer. We have been coming for many years and never run out of things to do. We also love to relax and have prepared our cabin for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy nature and the scenic views. We hope you will enjoy the Big Bear experience we have come to know and love. We also hope you appreciate what we have done to make your stay special!

Bill Black purchased this cabin in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sarah and I had a wonderful time here again. The weather has been lovely except for a sudden lightning, thunder and then hail storm, which was really cool to watch upstairs from the big windows! Wow! Plenty of bird watching the rest of the days spotting plenty of Stellers Jays, who feuded with the Red Topped Acorn Woodpeckers. The Mountain Chickadees are cute and were around too. There was a notable regular appearance from a Black-headed Grosbeak, who I assume was migrating back North for the summer. This was a relaxing and perfect stay again. Many Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. We love the ZOO, too! I am so glad you had a wonderful time! For future getaways to the cabin you can also try some Big Bear favorite hikes like the Woodland Trail, Castle Rock, Alpine Pedal Path and the 2N10. Also, the "Events" calendar on the City of Big Bear Lake's website has many planned family activities each month all year. All the best, Bill

Wonderland backyard

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience renting this cabin. Bill was easy and pleasant to work with and we were very happy with the clean and comfortable cabin itself. We thought there was plenty of room inside but the real gem is the backyard. My whole family spent hours having snowball fights, making snowmen and sledding down the many hills right outside the door. Location is fabulous. Minutes to hiking, dining and I thought it was quite fun being able to watch the skiers and boarders going down Bear Mountain. Thank you Bill for sharing your cabin with us. Many happy memories were made that weekend!

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our teenage daughter planned the trip and found this quaint little place. We took a few of her friends and our son for a 3 night stay. She was dead set on staying here. Glad she insisted....great location and the owner was incredibly accommodating. Thanks so much. Look forward to coming back!

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, I am glad it worked for your family and friends getaway to Big Bear Lake. I love it...Make sure to put your daughter in charge of travel plans more often. You're welcome back anytime and should check out the summers at the cabin, which are great for hiking, biking and all the Lake activities. Thank you for such a nice review. All the best, Bill

A week to remember!

  • 5 of 5

My family's stay at Bill's cabin was fantastic! The cabin lived up to its billing. We were a short walk to the lifts and the cabin was clean and spacious for all five of us. The balcony and spa area is extra special with views of Bear Mountain Ski Resort both day and night. Having two areas to relax, play games, and watch TV, was nice for anyone wanting quite time or interested in watching something else on TV. Hopefully, next year we'll be back to enjoy this great cabin again.
