Why Matthew Vahabzadeh chose Big Bear

We've always loved taking trips to Big Bear with our friends and family. When we came across this home, we knew it was the one for us! We both have a passion for snowboarding and wake boarding; this property provides the perfect location for both. Only minutes away from both mountains and the lake, this is the perfect get-away all year-round.

What makes this cabin unique

What made us fall in love with this home when we first entered it was the fact that it needed to be remodeled! When purchasing this home, our favorite show to watch together was HGTV's Property Brothers. This made us have an interest in finding a place that we could design and leave our mark on. The location, framework, and layout of the home was amazing, but the property definitely needed some work. After a lot of time and hard work we believe we did an amazing job at refinishing the cabin beautifully.

The Rock House ROCKS!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Rock House truly does ROCK! Five of my friends and I stayed at The Rock House over the Martin Luther King Day weekend and we could not have asked for a better experience. In fact, I travel to Big Bear frequently during the winter months as I love to ski and I can confidently say that The Rock House was one of the best cabins I have ever stayed in. The cabin has been recently, nicely, and tastefully remodeled, has all the amenities one would need, and was very clean top to bottom. Also, the location is fantastic! It is on a quiet street, a couple of minutes away from Vons, and literally an easy five-minute drive away from Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Matthew, who is the owner, was super responsive and made the whole process very pleasant. It took an easy phone call to confirm cabin availability and reserve it. In addition, we had a couple of questions once we got to the cabin and Matthew himself was available over the phone and answered all of our questions. He was also extremely fair refunding our security deposit, cleaning fee, and linen fee. Above all, I have thank him for his generosity as he had filled the fridge with refreshments including energy drinks, all of which were offered to us at no additional cost! YES, TOTALLY FREE!!! Overall, it was definitely a five-star experience and not only will we recommend The Rock House to our friends, we will be sure to contact Matthew when we are heading to Big Bear again.

Clean, close to everything

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and warm. We had some trouble with the DVD player, I think the remote batteries were low. They say there’s Games, but when we looked they were all jumbled and boxes were empty...I suggest you just bring your own. FYI, the electric tea kettle does not work, just boil water in a pot the old fashioned way. Overall, it was a nice place to stay, we enjoyed it a lot! Just a short drive to sledding and restaurants.

Just In Time for The Snow

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a short family getaway. No problems getting up or down the mountain as we avoided the weekend. Even got to see it snow and the kids had a blast. As to the cabin, we had 4 kids ages 7 and under and it was perfect for them. They all slept in the second bedroom which was plenty big, had a t.v. and kid appropriate DVDs. The home is well kept and we did not need anything such as cookware, utensils, etc. Matt was responsive to the one small issue we had upon check-in and had it resolved promptly.

You will like this house if it does not matter to be in or near the village. You will need a car for sure as it is located in a neighborhood a few miles from the village and actually one block away from the airport strip. Big Bear Snow play is just around the corner and comparable to Alpine Slide for tubing. Vons is also close for groceries. House has a full sized frig and dining table seats 6-7. No real fireplace if that is important to you. Wasn't for us. Great little electric one in the living room. Back yard is flat and great to outdoor bbq but no views other than the neighbors house. For the money it was very nice and would stay again.

Neat and spacious home with TV in every room

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. First off, there are TV's in every room which is not common in mountain rentals. The bunk bed bedroom is great for playing video games because there is an open space in front of a two seat couch. There are also a bunch of DVD's to watch. Another thing I enjoyed is how well the house heats. I am often cold when I rent houses but this one heated up great. The owner was very accommodating and communicated extremely well. I would recommend this home to everyone.

Great cabin for our family of 5

  • 4 of 5

The Rock house was just what we needed for our family and would love to come back and rent it. The location is just right and within minutes of everything in Big Bear. It had all the amenities we needed and was comfortable.

Car: necessary

The Rock House is centrally located in Big Bear; within walking distance of the Big Bear Convention Center where they host live music, festivals, a weekly farmers market and more! Another short walk away is Big Bear Snow Play, where you can go tubing in the winter and go-carting in the summer. The Rock House is a five minute drive away from Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts. Located at the eastern tip of Big Bear Lake, The Rock House gives you easy access to the beaches, boat launches, and hiking trails on both the north and the south side of the lake. A short drive will get you to the dining and the shops at The Village or to kayaking and paddle boarding at Boulder Bay. The Rock House is the perfect location for Big Bear activities all year round.
