About JOEL TAYLOR

I am a 54 year old freelance and studio musician from Los Angeles. I have traveled the world with many of the greatest artists in the music business. I love to mountain bike, ski, swim, hike and camp and usually book my vacations after one of my tours finishes in a foreign land. Playing music has helped me be able to trek the Himalayas, travel to India 4 times, explore many countries in southeast asia, including China, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia, and travel to almost every country in western and eastern europe. I've also been diving in Australia, Maui, Thailand, Malaysia, and Belize and Tahiti.

I love to get away to my house in Big Bear(Sugarloaf) as often as I can, but when I'm not up there, I enjoy sharing the experience with my friends. I have been letting close and facebook friends use the place for several years now, booked with another from Aug - Nov 2011, but took it off the market for the past 2 years, hence the lack of feedback on this site. I just re-listed on Nov 5, 2013. I'm happy to put you in touch with clients who booked directly through me in the past if you would like references.

I wish you all a pleasant stay at my house if you decide to book. Thanks,

Joel Taylor

A nice place to stay in summer in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in the summer. The house is bigger than it looks on this site, as others have mentioned. Also, the neighborhood is quiet. If you walk south to where the street ends, then east a short block, there are trails through the pines. They make a nice place to walk after dinner in the summer. Just around the corner are a post office, small store, and tavern where you can buy a beer or a hamburger. There was no Internet, but it didn't matter because we got reception on our cell phones (Metro PCS) and were able to stream Netflix, check email, etc. There are a few movies onsite. We watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and a Roman Holiday. The owner, Joel, was easy to work with and communication was good. Would we rent again? Yes.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Although it was just two of us, this cabin would easily fit 6+. The place was very clean when we arrived. Heater and hot water worked great and the fire place in the living room keeps the front of the place very cozy. I was very pleased with it and hope to come back soon
