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!

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!

Cozy cabin in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed two nights at Bill's cabin in October. The cabin is clean and well-appointed. It can comfortably accommodate six, yet didn't feel too big for the two of us. Instead of going out for dinner, we cooked in the small but functional kitchen and grilled on the deck. We loved relaxing in the hot tub - watching the birds in the trees during the day, seeing the countless bright stars at night. And hearing the wolves howl nearby was awesome!

Beautiful, accommodating and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing this wonderful cabin which was equipped with everything we needed to have a fantastic stay! Listen to the wolves at night and definitely visit the zoo (yes, they are caged, no worries :-)). The owner was very helpful and accommodating, the deck and hot tub were awesome too and there was plenty of space here!!! The only negative I had was the heat upstairs. We tried the window fan exhaust trick but nothing worked, we couldn't go upstairs until late in the evening. Maybe consider a portable a/c for up there in summer. Thanks again for sharing Bill!!!

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful summer getaway. This cabin is just close enough to town to be convenient to shopping and restaurants, but just far enough away that's it quiet so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck and hot tub. The kitchen has everything you need to cook family meals, including some spices other have left behind. This was our first time using VRBO. We appreciated how easy our host was to work with and the great communication.
