WELCOME TO KANODIA SUMMIT! Why the name "KANODIA"? The Serrano's (a Native American tribe) were the first settlers in the Big Bear Valley. They refer to themselves as the Yuhaviatam, which means "People of the Pines". In honor of these first settlers we wanted to give our cabins a Serrano name. "Kanodia" which means "Where Heaven Rests Upon the Earth" captured our hearts and became the trademark for our beautiful cabins. We feel blessed to share them with you!

Stunning, remodeled, custom octagon home with central great room & massive windows ~ professionally decorated ~ central location ~ 7 houses from Snow Summit ~ upscale neighborhood. Large wooded lot on culdesac ~ garage and flat parking available.

Everything we wanted for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so cozy and has everything we needed. Great stock for cooking and so organized. Everything is so clean and decorated with warmth and the tasteful Big bear touches! Beds are very comfortable for a great nights sleep in the woods. It is such a great location as we took a walk to Snow Summit and a close drive to supermarkets too. Appliances are modern and easy to use. The kitchen/living area is so neat to have the full view of the gorgeous trees! It is stalked like a home with fun games and home accessories needed for a great time. :-)

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home! This was our first family trip to Big Bear -- we came to teach our two daughters (7 and 3) how to ski. Our weekend couldn't have been more perfect. We arrived to find the home in pristine condition -- spotless and comfortable. The upstairs is a open "roundhouse" design with a gas fireplace that was a perfect place to coexist -- we could be together even when one or more of us was cooking or washing dishes. The kitchen was modern and totally equipped with everything we needed. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The house is literally about 700 feet from the Snow Summit lifts, so getting to the mountain -- even with two young kids -- was hassle free. And the owner -- Laura -- was completely reachable and responsive all weekend long, making sure everything was perfect. Very highly recommended!

Charming home that is warm and inviting. I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We instantly fell in love the minute we got there. The property was tastefully decorated and felt like home. It had top notch amenities and the entire home was spotless. We played games by the fire while we sipped hot cocoa. We had a fooseball tournament and winner picked the Netflix movie. We enjoyed the home so much it was hard to venture out, but when we did finally explore Big Bear everything was so close. It was hard to leave, but we will be back.

Beautiful Family Home - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular for my family and I. We stayed over Labor Day weekend and this location near the Lake was PERFECT! The home had a great layout, was clean and had everything we needed and more to cook, play and relax as a family. We loved the multiple porches, gorgeous kitchen and great space. The home is on a quiet street and the kids were able to play right out front. The owners were very nice and accommodating and were very responsive during the rental process. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet or fun Big Bear Getaway! Can't wait to go back!

Car: necessary

Location, location, location! This home is a few house from Snow Summit - one street over from Summit Boulevard. On a good day ski your way back to the house! We're about 1/2 mile from the main Village, grocery stores and the lake! Close to everything Big Bear has to offer yet a world away ... this is the PERFECT getaway destination! Don't forget to visit the Moonridge Zoo, the Discovery Center, Alpine Slide and check out all the incredible events taking place year round!
