Property description

Location, Location, Location

Welcome to the 5-star Summit Estate 'Le Grande Retreat'. This recently renovated luxury ski chalet is a perfect place for a large family vacation with rare “ski-in/ski-out” privilege. Snow Summit slope is less than a 3 minute walk from this cabin. It’s ideal for a mixed group of skiers & non-ski vacationers. Skiers can easily walk back from slope for a quick break, lunch or a nap as often as you like. Non-skiers can walk up to the Snow Summit to see friends and family or simply enjoy the chalet while relaxing in the jacuzzi or snuggling in front of the wood-burning fireplace.

This gorgeous estate is on a quiet street situated in one of the most desirable Summit Estate areas.

Le Grande Retreat is a convenient location for all other activities offered at Big Bear as well. It is within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops, and only a 3 minute drive to the Village and the lake. Bear Mountain is only a 5 minute drive or you can catch a free shuttle from Snow Summit without any parking worries.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I'm a frequent business traveler over 25 years. It's like a living out of small suitcase at hotels & airports all the time. Owning a getaway place in Big Bear was my dream to relax and recharge. This is a perfect cabin inviting families and friends with lots of bedrooms and privacy. I love snowboarding with sons and friends during the winter. I enjoy many great summer activities such as hiking, mountain biking, boating and trout fishing. I hope you enjoy Big Bear Lake and our cabin through out the year as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
LOCATION: I was fortunate to find this house at perfect location, very close to Snow Summit. This house was untouched for over 30 years needed total make-over. It took 2 months to build my dream cabin. I'm very happy with outcome of this major renovation, special thanks to my most trusted contractor Bud Bailey Construction. There are many vacation rentals in Big Bear Lake, but not many 5-bedroom house for multi-family vacation. Multi-family vacation means different ages of group and different interests. Skiers and snowboarders always appreciate walking distance to the slope, but more importantly the cabin should be enjoyable for everyone. It's sad not seeing family members for all day on vacation. Staying at Le Grande Retreat, you can make many trips between the slope and cabin for any reasons, feeding baby, lunch or coffee break. You don't need to wait for family members at cold outside or expensive resort restaurant all the time. INTERIOR: Le Grande's decor is not typical Big Bear cabin style. Many cabins offer similar log table, log chair, log bed, quilt tapestries, quilt bed cover. Because I spent so much time traveling and staying at hotels all the time, I wanted to make this place like French-country style house. This project will never end and will be redecorated constantly.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
CONCIERGE SERVICE: Le Grande Retreat offers concierge service to meet you at easy-to-find location, and escort to the house for smooth check-in. Your concierge will walk through the house to explain key features and demonstrate how to operate door lock, thermostat, cable TV, hot tub and ready to answer any questions about house or Big Bear Lake. OTHER FEATURES: Large flat parking space for 5 cars in front, RV or trailered boat on side, and garage access upon special request. Gourmet kitchen with coffee maker, oven, microwave, toaster, dishes, pots/pan and more. Internet with Wi-Fi access through out the house. Laundry washer/dryer and ironing board. Charter Cable HD channels, DVD/VHS player, Wii and Playstation 2.
