About Scott De Long

We have a large extended family, many with kids of their own, and wanted a place we could all gather, along with my sisters family who has the home next door. In just a couple of short years, this house a gathering place for our pre-holiday family outings. We have also used the home to host groups of friends, up to 4 couples at a time to enjoy weekend adventures in the mountains.

Scott De Long purchased this estate in 2010

Why Scott De Long chose North Estates

The house is huge and could accommodate our large and growing family.

W also use it to host corporate retreats. I am a facilitator, and the family room, is creates a perfect space for the work that gets done at retreats. We have decided to rent the property this year for the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, as well as the three day ski weekends, as we simply wont be available to use the house during these times. This really is our family home, and we care about it.

What makes this estate unique

The porches in the front of the house is what we first fell in love with in addition to the grand entrance with the wrought iron doors. It has spectacular curb appeal, it is large and beautiful. We built the inside to be a masterpiece, we went completely away from the 'cabin look' and upgraded everything from stone and fixtures in the kitchen, coffee/wine bar and bathrooms, to the choice of flooring, lighting fixtures, and even the curtains.

Everything was great except for the nosy neighbors

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the house and wanted some peace and quiet time to relax and reflect but the neighbor next door to the right came and knock on the door everyday for the first five day of our 9 days stay and when we didn't open the door he open the door to try to come inside but luckily he heard the alarm and left. On the first few days we had told him that we need peace and quiet but he kept coming back. He kept asking our friends how long we were going to stay and when we are going to leave. It was kind of creepy. Other than that everything else was the great. The house is beautiful with lots of space and cool breeze.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about the experience with the "neighbor". The man who came to the door, was actually a local handyman who was trying to get information so he could do some of the work I had contracted with him. I am no longer using this person, as I also felt he was "creppy" once I got the first job done with him. This is not a reflection on the home or even the neighbors, they are all great. This guy is no longer welcome in or around my home.

Best place in Big Bear!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family getaway here in early July, 2016! With many different age groups, there were plenty of things to do to accommodate everyone. The house is so large and spacious, it's easy to getaway if you need quiet time yet the kids can yell and scream while playing in the great room. Scott was extremely attentive from start to finish and answered all my questions quickly as well as provided contact info if problems arose and gave us a list of recommended activities and restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend this property for a large group and we will be sure to go back!

Ultimate Luxury Getaway for Friends and Family

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time is this immaculate custom home. This is a perfect place for friends and family to vacation and enjoy time together. From our first communication with the owner to our last with the housekeeper Carolina, everything was first class. Each of the bedrooms has a TV and attached or adjacent bathroom. The kitchen is incredible and a central meeting spot for us each morning for coffee and breakfast. Our days were spent exploring the village shops and restaurants of big bear. We loved the restaurant/ bar Social. Ours nights were filled with BBQ, playing Bocce, Pool and Ping-Pong. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely go again.

One of the best houses we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very luxurious house with top of the line appliances and lots of attention to detail. The bed sheets and towels were just like staying at 5 star hotel. One of the best qualities among others is that there are so many full baths - so every room has its own bathroom and shower. Perfect for families and kids. Great entertainment space. We will definitely stay here again. I've stayed at many houses and this was the cleanest one and everything is brand new. Scott the owner is great at responding to emails and helping with any question. Great location and minutes away from slopes and everything else you want to do in Big Bear! Highly recommend this house. (February 2016)
