About the property

Large 2 br, 1 ba Private Home. Walk to Snow Summit, 1/2 mile to Village & Lake

Location, Location, Location. 3 blocks to Snow Summit, 1/2 mile to the Village and minutes to the Lake. Newly remodeled with hardwood floors, this family-friendly, level-entry, one-story private home features a large kitchen with everything you need to cook a feast. Front-loading washer and dryer for your use. The Master has a Queen feather bed with 40' flat screen TV. The large 2nd bedroom can sleep up to 5 with a double bunk bed and trundle bed - with a TV, as well. The family room has a huge flat screen above the wood burning fireplace for all of your movies and Sunday football. Featuring HBO, Showtime, etc. along with Wi-fi, there's everything you need to hunker down after a day of skiing or snowboarding.

The big back yard has a jacuzzi and tournament sized horse shoe pit is amazing with sand! There is a giant swing set with slide and fort for the kids. The entire backyard is fenced in with a 6' foot high cedar fence. We call it the 'kid corral' - the safest place for your kids. There's also a 6-person dining table outside with a smoker/grill on the large covered patio. Enjoy the smell of the clean, pine-scented air laying on your own private hammock (seasonal). Snowmen often come to visit, too!

This is the place to relax after a day of hiking, water skiing, wake boarding, wind surfing, tubing, fishing, snow skiing, snow boarding or the many outdoor activities Big Bear has to offer.

Whether you eat-in or go out to one of our many fine-dining establishments, there are so many options. The Bowling Barn is minutes away, as well as miniature golf, Moon Ridge Zoo, Bear Mountain Golf Course, and Alpine Slide. There are tubing parks just a few miles away for the kids to enjoy the snow. The newly-renovated Village is really close with numerous restaurants, shops and a movie theater.

Why Jen Gentile chose Big Bear

We looked at so many properties and this was so clean compared to the rest. Built in the 60's, this home is newer for the area and on a slab foundation with a level entry and garage.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Great quiet neighborhood and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only a weekend and even though the weather warmed up and didn't get any snow. The distance to snow summit made up for that, it is going up hill so the remainder of the time we dropped off the family members that were snowboarding. The main street to walk up is very quite and does not have too much traffic. Home has a huge back yard and everything you need to be comfortable. We never had to contact the owner, but were giving their number in case we needed anything. Walking distance to restaurants. Will come again!

Awesome location, lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

Jenifer was great and the location was perfect. A short walk to the slopes and dining. Kids loved the fact that there were multiple bed choices in the 2nd bedroom. Reclining chair and couches were a great touch too. Very clean and well maintained house. We'll be back.

Fantastic Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My children (3 and 5) made some lifetime memories while staying at Jennifer's cabin. It is located near Snow Summit. We did walk there, but ended up carrying the kiddos home. On the day my boys skied (for the first time) we chose to drive and pay the 20$ parking fee for the convenience. While they loved their ski lesson, the highlight of their trip was the snow in the backyard that had been piled to make a great sledding hill. They loved sledding and just experiencing the snow. The backyard has a fun swing set that is in good shape. After all the snow play, the boys and my husband enjoyed the hot tub. It cozily fit the 3 of them. Downtown Big Bear is a short 5 minute drive. We ended up visiting on a crazy busy weekend(fresh snow).

Inside the home, the boys loved the bunk beds, but ended up sleeping on the bottom bunk and the day bed. The master bedroom was comfortable too. There were plenty of towels, and a washer/dryer if you needed it. The kitchen was clean and had all the necessities(coffee maker w filters/dishwasher w detergent/toaster) and the fridge was very clean. The linoleum in kitchen and bath was sparkling clean as was the carpet. Never have I stayed in such a clean cabin. Kudos to the cleaners. The cabin was super comfortable and felt like 'home'. It didn't have lots of knick-knacks. There were board games, internet, satellite tv inside.

There weren't many downsides. The fireplace took a first try to really understand how it worked, and the heater unit took a minute to figure out. But those are learning curves you would experience anywhere.

My family of 4 of stayed here and we all give it the highest thumbs up.

We look forward to staying in this cozy cabin next year.

We stayed at Jennifer's house over Christmas with our 3 little kids. We absolutely loved our stay there. It was very cozy, the backyard was great for the kids with the play structure in it, everything worked great and we will definitely be back. Thank you Jennifer for your hospitality! Fleur
