Overview

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 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.

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.

Great location and great property

We had a great stay at the house. Jen was a great host and everything we could have needed was at the house. Very close to snow summit. Would stay here again soon! Thanks for having us.

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.

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!

At the base of Snow Summit Ski Resort, this private home is minutes from the Village, Shopping, Restaurants, and the Lake. Less then 10 minutes away are tubing parks, miniature golf, Bear Mountain Golf Resort, Moonridge Zoo and Alpine Slide, which features a water slide during the summer. We are just a few blocks from the hospital and the library, as well as walking distance to several restaurants and stores. We have a tournament size horse-shoe pit in the back yard, along with a giant swing set for the kids. The kids couldn't be safer in this fully fenced-in backyard. You have your own private jacuzzi and outdoor dining area under a large covered patio.
