Just steps from the Village! Best location and super cozy cabin! A GEM!!

You have stumbled upon a gem of a cabin! Just read the reviews! Our guests love visiting us and we love to host. The location is perfect, the cabin is super quaint and comfy,.... and we are dog friendly! We have a brand NEW premium spa just installed in July 2016. Plus, we built a gate that fully encloses the backyard. Perfect for keeping pups and kiddos safely contained. Our close proximity to the village can't be beat.

We often run promotions for a third night free, however they do not apply to holidays or holiday weekends. The third night free is not through VRBO so please ask for a quote and I will manually apply the discount.

Our cozy and comfortable retreat in Big Bear Lake is conveniently located within walking distance of Big Bear Village, the lake - Pine Knot Marina, and the National Forest. Ski, snowboard, boat, fish, hike, mountain bike, or just relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this San Bernardino Mountain community. Only 2 miles to Snow Summit Ski Resort and 3.8 miles to Bear Mountain Ski Resort and Golf Course.

The house has 2 bedrooms (each with its own wall mounted television), 2 bathrooms (one with a very large handicap accessible shower, sink and toilet), 1 large den (with a 50” HDTV), dining room, and a perfect sized and stocked kitchen. After a long day, enjoy a barbecue on the large front deck with swing and peek-a-boo view of the lake, perhaps one of your favorite DVDs, and then retreat to the new backyard spa to relax your body and take in the amazingly brilliant night sky! At night, you can also walk into town and visit all of the great features the village has to offer. Come to Big Bear Lake and ENJOY!!!

About MJ

Bear Haven is under new ownership beginning January 2014! We are always making ongoing upgrades to the cabin.

Why MJ chose Big Bear

This is a super cozy and comfortable cabin. It is in a perfect location, we are pet friendly, we keep the cabin clean, a stone's throw from the village, and everything you need to enjoy a fabulous time in Big Bear.

What makes this cabin unique

Just steps to the village. You get the charm of a cozy cabin and the fun and convenience of what the village has to offer! Brand new hot tub installed July 2016.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The check-in instructions were very clear and well thought out. It was great having wifi in the cabin, as well as cable channels. Our daughter loved the welcome goody bag of treats, that was a nice touch! We also appreciated the abundance of big, fluffy towels...much better quality than we've encountered in other rentals. Overall the kitchen was well-stocked with the exception of glassware - wine glasses in particular. It's a great idea to provide non-breakable glasses for use in the spa, but it would be nice to have the regular kind for use inside. (We keep a supply of glassware from Ikea on hand for parties, you can't beat their prices.) We had a little trouble getting the heat to circulate into the bedrooms, but we managed. The backyard landscaping is quite lovely, and although we didn't get around to using the spa I can imagine that would be a great way to soothe sore muscles after skiing. The cabin location can't be beat! We walked to the village once or twice each day. There was plenty of room for four adults and one child. Having the second bath is a huge plus.

We would definitely contact in the future for a trip.

Exactly what we were looking for!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the "Cozy Cabin!" From the start of booking the communication was great. We got prompt emails with great information so we'd be ready for our trip. The house is very close to the Village. It was about a 5 minute walk and that was with a 3 year old ;-). It's also only about a 10 minute walk down to the lake so it was very convenient! The house itself is very cozy and has everything you need! The beds are comfy and my son was very excited to sleep in a bunk bed. We made use of the jacuzzi several times a day! They have Direct TV with tons of channels so when we didn't feel like being out and about we could be lazy and watch movies. Which reminds me, they had a supply of DVDs, books, games etc.

The yard is fenced which made us feel safer about having our dog and kid running around. It's a nice neighborhood for taking walks but you don't feel like your neighbors are too close. It was about a 5 minute drive to most of the things you might need like grocery shopping, tourist attractions etc.

We received our security deposit back very promptly with a nice note from the owners. We're looking forward to visiting the Cozy Cabin again in the future!

Perfect location for an awesome weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were in Big Bear for the Tour de Big Bike bike ride. We are from Tucson with relatives living just done the hill in Apple Valley, but we decided that this year we didn't want to schlep up and down the hill before and after the ride. Instead, we wanted to be able to enjoy our time in Big Bear outside of the bike ride. This cabin was perfectly situated just uphill from the ride start and within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants district. We had an 8:30 am ride start time, we rolled out of the cabin at 8:20. Even better was that after the ride we could return to the cabin, shower and enjoy the rest of the weekend in Big Bear. The cabin had all of the necessities and was very comfortable for two couples. If we return to ride again next year, we will definitely check on the availability of this cabin.

Great place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed two visits to Bear Haven Cabin - in 2014 and 2016. This cozy cabin has plenty of indoor and outdoor space for mom, dad, two boys, and one dog. The boys love the spa and television. Mom, dad, and dog love the easy walks to the village. We also appreciated access to a grill, keurig machine, and washer/dryer. With Bear Haven Cabin as our home base, we could easily drive to the lake, alpine slide, grocery store, and numerous restaurants. Our entire family feels at home and quite peaceful when we stay in this cabin. We hope to return again!

Clean, and well organized place. BUT....

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, it's a great great place. We just did a summer's weekend. The ONLY big negatives (one isn't even that bad) are that the driveway IS WAY steep and narrow, and no air conditioning. Luckily it wasn't a hot weekend, but if it would have been, we could have been in trouble. Small fans that were provided (one broke) didn't really help. And only two ceiling fans in the dining/ kitchen. In contrast, this place is hooked up ready for the cold with all of its heating options.

The kids enjoyed the space (they're 3 & 6), as did our dog (65lb love bug mix).

Very close walk to the village. Very close to, well EVERYTHING.

great great GREAT place.

Thank you for letting us stay. = )

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Amanda. We bought new and bigger fans for future guests. Many cabins in the mountains don't have AC and it isn't generally an issue as it cools down in the evenings. Hope to see you again!

Bear Haven is our favorite Big Bear Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We adore Bear Haven! So much that we came back again for a second visit. The owners are so kind and helpful, and provide all of the details upfront. The home itself is just wonderful! The layout is great, with plenty of room for everyone. When you walk inside, it just feels cozy and warm. Such a gem. We stayed there with our dog and 2 young boys, and had the best time. It's such a close walk to town, too. I can't say enough great things about this rental. The furniture and beds are comfortable, access to a washer/dryer is a fantastic bonus, and sitting in the hot tub on a starry night is breathtaking. We love this place!!

Awesome weekend gettaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute cabin!! It had everything we need and you can tell the owners take great care of this little gem. We walked to the village to dine and have a drink each day we were there. The village has a small mountain feel and we loved it. Overall an amazing weekend and we can't wait to go back!
