Welcome to Lazy Bear Retreat. Your home away from home. Lazy Bear is located in peaceful scenic Big Bear City. Big Bear is one of the few places in Southern California that offers year round fun for the whole family. The best place to stay while experiencing Big Bear is in a cozy spacious cabin with all the comforts of home. Lazy Bear Retreat delivers just that.

This magnificent cabin is in a superlative location in Big Bear City. It is within 5-10 min drive time of all the main attractions in Big Bear including Big Bear Lake and Snow Summit Ski Resort. The Cabin is just two blocks from the main highways, which makes access to town quick and simple. The cabins location allows you to be close enough to town to experience the year round fun Big Bear has to offer yet far away enough to truly enjoy the peace and privacy of this secluded neighborhood. So leave the stress and worries of daily city life behind, pack your bags and come experience all Big Bear has to offer at Lazy Bear Retreat.

Lazy Bear Retreat has a great combination of cozy cabin feel and modern living. The beautiful log siding, wood paneling and brick fireplace gives it that warm, cozy cabin feel you would expect to experience in Big Bear. The sleek modern upgrades in the bathroom and kitchen will remind you of your own home. The combination of both gives you a wonderful relaxing cabin to return to after a long day of outdoor fun in the mountains.

This clean spacious Cabin will have more than enough room for your group of family and friends. Both rooms are spacious and so is the living room area. The two large sofas, 50 inch Smart TV and blu ray player are great for watching movies with the family as the daylight hours trickle away. Whether you are staying a week or just a couple days, Lazy Bear Retreat has everything to make you feel just as comfortable as you would in your own home.

As owner of Lazy Bear Retreat, I take great pride in welcoming you to a home that will impress you with its comfort and cleanliness as soon as you step in. Additions to Lazy Bear Retreat are added monthly. Whenever I have an ideal that I feel may please guest and provide guest with more comfort I don’t hesitate to add that new amenity to the Cabin. So each time you visit Lazy Bear Retreat it will be better than the last.

Big Bear can get extremly cold in the winter. The cabin has central heating controlled by a digital wall thermostat to keep you warm and comfortable everywhere in the cabin. I also provide guest with (4) heating blankets, one for each bed. As well as (3) space heaters. And, of course, a cabin would not be complete without a cozy wood-burning fireplace to curl up in front of.

For entertainment Lazy Bear Retreat offers a 50 inch Smart Tv, Dvd’s, FREE CABLE, FREE WIRELESS INTERNET, FREE NETFLIX, Blu Ray / Dvd player and numerous board and card games.

The kitchen was remodeled with new wood floors and stainless steel appliances. The entire house has new carpet and tile throughout. The bathroom was remodeled and received new tile, new vanity and a full size washer and dryer.

The master bedroom has a queen bed with a comfortable new mattress. Bedroom two has a queen bed and a bunk bed. The bunk bed has a full size bed on bottom and twin size bed on top. Which makes the maximum sleeping capacity 7.

Clean sheets and blankets are provided, along with bath towels, hand soap, and dish soap. The kitchen is stocked with new cookware and utensils, cups/glasses, dishes, a coffee maker, coffee, creamer and spices.


The front and rear yard are both large and fenced around the whole perimeter. The driveway can fit approx 4 cars in the driveway. Street parking is also avaiable. There is enough space for approx 2 cars to park on the street infront of the cabin. There is also enough room in the driveway for a boat or RV.

I am dedicated to making this place the ultimate Big Bear experience for my guests and would like for each and every one of you to feel at home, and want to return in the near future. In order to accomplish that, your feedback and reviews are essential! Any returning Guest that has written a review on VRBO about their previous stay at Lazy Bear Retreat will receive $10 off of their next reservation.

About Jay

Hi I'm Jay welcome to Lazy Bear Retreat. I grew up loving the outdoors, camping, snow and outdoor activities just as many of you did. Growing up my family would take several trips to Big Bear each year. Every trip included many cousins, friends, uncles, aunts and grandparents. As my cousin’s and I all entered adult hood we no longer had time to take family trips. We all begin working and had kids and life’s everyday responsibilities no longer allowed us to fit Big Bear in our schedule. Life has a way of making us all grow up even if we don't want to.

I cherished the years with my family and friends in Big Bear and wanted my friends and younger cousins to have the opportunity to grow up in Big Bear just as we did. This house is for you all to enjoy, bond and create your own life long memories just as I did here as a kid. To this day every time I go to Big Bear I see something that reminds me and makes me reflect on all the fun we had here as kids.

After purchasing this home I'm happy to say that our family has begin taking trips to Big Bear again. All the kids enjoy it and its nice to see all our kids bonding and experiencing Big Bear just as we did when we were kids.

Jay purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jay chose Big Bear

After looking at many properties I chose Big Bear City because of the location, size and opportunity to create my own vision of home in the mountains. Majority of my family and friends live in Southern California so we are all able to take a quick vacation to Big Bear any time of year. The neighborhood is very peaceful and the neighbors are very friendly.

Will Never Forget

  • 4 of 5

The reservation process was painless, the owner was responsive. It was my first Thanksgiving with my boyfriend, and this was meant to be a relaxing romantic Thanksgiving getaway for two. I was able to cook a Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen without problem. It was large, clean, and fully stocked. The Netflix on the TV made for a cozy weekend because it was so cold outside we didn't want to leave. We were disappointed in not being able to use the fireplace. The notes from the owner indicated that he wouldn't recommend lighting fireplace if you aren't familiar with that type of fireplace and to unfortunately we were not experts. So to avoid and problems we did not light the fireplace which we were wanting for that romantic feel. However it did start to snow on Thanksgiving and my bf popped the question so all in all it was a wonderful weekend that we will never forget!

Beautiful place with plenty of room. Big front and back yard.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin (house) was very comfortable with lots of room. A great place to see the mountain, whether you want to use the slopes or just spend time in the Big Bear area. Close to the village and the ski area, but far enough away from crowds and traffic. Very beautiful area and had a great time!
