About Anabel

Hi, my name is Anabel and I live in Santa Barbara with my husband Robert and my daughter Jessica. We love, hiking, fishing on the lake, swimming, boating, horseback riding, and skiing. Welcome to our cabin we know you'll love it as much as we do.

Anabel purchased this Cabin in 2014

Why Anabel chose Big Bear Lake

Our beautiful cabin is right in the heart of Big Bear Lake...just a few minutes walk to the Village and the Marina. You'll love relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views right off our spacious deck or taking a nice dip in our very secluded hot tub. We're also just steps away from an awesome trailhead where you'll find miles of hiking, biking, and off-roading. And we're just a few minute drive to the ski slopes!

What makes this Cabin unique

The beautiful views off the back deck are one of the things I enjoy most. Barbecuing, star gazing, or outside dining. Relaxing in the tot tub after a day of swimming in the lake, hiking, or skiing. The most perfect location!

                                                              It was an amazing birthday get away for my son's 7th bday celebration!

                                                              The cabin looks exactly like the pictures. We had an amazing time! We're planning on returning again this summer. Anabel was great answering any questions we had. THANK YOU! For sure we will be booking this cabin again.

                                                              Loved it! Looking Forward to Visiting Again!

                                                              We loved our stay in this lovely peaceful home! We WILL be back! The house has a homy, cozy feel to it. Very clean and comfortable. Locationwise, this home is close to shopping and restaurants in The Village but also in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen was fully stocked w/ everything you need to cook even a slow cooker which I used. We enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings while watching snowfall from the deck. So Pretty!

                                                              We are planning to visit Big Bear next winter and will definitely stay here again!

                                                              Awesome times at The Bears Den!

                                                              We had an amazing time staying at Anabel's cabin! The jacuzzi was perfect for relaxing after a day of snowboarding. We also took full advantage of the back deck cooking on the gas grill each night.

                                                              We'll definitely return to this super cute cabin and look forward to our next visit!

                                                              We had a fantastic experience. It was clean and well taken care of. We even had a small plumbing issue that was handled super quickly by Anabel.

                                                              The only two things I would hope for on our next stay would be a second sofa in the living area and a grate in the fireplace to help with starting fires.

                                                              Hi Jessica,

                                                              Thank you for your great review and for your suggestions. We've replaced the two chairs with newer more comfortable ones.

                                                              Wishing you all the best!


                                                              Pictures don't give you the full picture

                                                              The home is very old and the bathrooms had drainage issues. The pictures give off the impression the hot tub is on the back deck, but rather it's in an awful place next to the cabin, and is inaccessible at night. Overall, if you're looking for something small and cheap, this is a good idea. Otherwise, if you're looking for better amenities, pass.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              I'm truly sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at our home as so many others have.

                                                              I was very surprised with your rating since I've never received one that low before.

                                                              I've tried very hard to make sure the photos picture our cabin as it truly is... notice there is no jacuzzi on the back deck.

                                                              As far as the slow drain, when a guest informs me of a problem during their stay, like a slow drain, I offer to have it fixed during their visit and make sure it's ready for the next guest... I can't tend to things if not informed.

                                                              I'm very reachable and is extremely important to keep the communication line open during all of our guests stay for this very reason.

                                                              Though our cabin is a bit older as most cabins in Big Bear are, it has been upgraded yet keeping that charming old cabin feel that so many guests, new and returning have come to appreciate.

                                                              As far as the Jacuzzi I've never had a complaint on its perfect location... downstairs just off the the back door where you'll find the three bedrooms and the second bathroom. The accesability is easy, lighted, and very close to the bathroom. I had it placed there for that very reason... convenience.

                                                              This and our location is one of the most favored amenities of our place.

                                                              Perfect Location & Size

                                                              This property was perfect for our family of four. Nice views, cozy, quiet and very close to Big Bear Village. Bedrooms and beds were perfect sizes and quite comfortable. My wife was extremely happy about the kitchen being fully stocked for her to cook a few meals. Everything about the property was explained in detail by Anabel, the owner, upon confirming the reservation. Anabel was very prompt with replies leading up to rental dates and very available during our stay. We had no issues at all. The only ONLY thing I would wish for is for brighter lighting in the living area, but that is a minor thing. We would definitely be back to Big Bear and hopefully be able to rent this property again.

                                                              Our cabin is centrally located, right in the heart of Big Bear Lake! We are just a few minutes walk to the village and the marina where you'll find great shopping and dining. At the marina you can rent a boat and go fishing, enjoy water sports, kayaking, or just enjoy the beautiful lake. And we are just a few minutes drive to Bear Mountain resorts where you'll find great Winter skiing and Summer bicycling, hiking, or wall climbing.
