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

What makes this cabin unique

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!

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I am glad you picked Big Bear to beat the Yuma heat of summer. You are welcome any time! All the best, Bill

Most amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

On the recommendation of a dear friend of ours who has used the cabin in the past as a Writer's Retreat, we decided to book the cabin for our 20th Anniversary -- we just wanted someplace quiet, where we could just relax and either do nothing, or explore Big Bear at a leisurely place... and this rental DELIVERED!!

Not only are the accommodations lovely, the cabin is ideally situated to a number of great restaurants, and 'necessity shopping' [groceries, drug store, etc.] are a 5 minute drive away. Couple that with locals that are warm and pleasant, and you have what was for us a truly captivating stay... it was everything we hoped it would be, and more.

We couldn't recommend this rental property more; we would have extended our stay if there wasn't someone else already booked to come in the day we were scheduled to leave! And I can safely say that not only will we be back soon, but we intend to make regular visits in the future... can't wait to stay there again! Thanks again for everything!!

Wonderful family time

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean and fun house to stay in. The kitchen is very well appointed and we cooked many meals there. We were even able to bake a birthday cake for one of our kids. We had a lot of fun on the deck and in the hot tub looking out at the view and the moon at night. This house was very cozy and we have a lot of wonderful family memories from our trip. Many thanks to Bill Black for sharing his home with us.
