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. Snow Summit is making plenty of snow! 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 Lake

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.

Cozy, cute and so close to Summit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here this past weekend with our kids. The place is warm and inviting and it had all the necessities needed. We loved the Decor and there were plenty of things provided such as towels and blankets.

The children loved to play in the backyard with the snow, and the play set was an added bonus. We use the hot tub once and it was nice and heated up quickly for us.

The mattresses in the bunkbed room were all outdated and squeaked a lot which made it hard to get good sleep. The kitchen had lots of cooking utensils to help make a meal. The dining table has a glass too and is VERY unstable. We were never able to leave the kids alone at the table because we felt it was going to fall off constantly slightly leaning on it. Overall, it's a great place to stay! Jen was wonderful at communicating and being available. We will definitely want to come back here in the future! Hoping the table is not there anymore though lol

Very clean and practical

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, everything is perfect specially for a family of four or five. It only has one bathroom so it's great for one family not 2. Very close to ski slopes.

Practical, comfy home, no frills.

  • 4 of 5

Overall comfortable, practical home. Has what you need, but don't expect any special details like nice linens or comfy pillows. The house is maintained, all linens are clean and furniture is dusted, etc. but it's in need of an overall deep cleaning and refresh in my opinion.

My husband and I stayed here with 3 younger children and it was fine. Queen bed in main bedroom is just ok comfortable. Second bedroom sleeps 3-4 children easily.

House has central heating but is on the loud side when it kicks in.

My kids loved playing in the snow in the backyard. And the WIFI and Direct TV were nice. The living room has a fireplace but you supply the wood.

Located near Snow Summitt and 3 miles from Bear Mountain.
