About the property

Great Family Retreat! 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Huge Deck, Hot Tub for 6+



Ideal mountain escape! This is a true mountain cabin with all the atmosphere you could hope for! Close to everything yet feels miles away. Three Bears Retreat combines the most sought after Bear Mountain location with all of the amenities you are looking for. Nestled on a large tree covered lot on a quiet cul-de-sac street with no through traffic. Short walk to Lift, Hiking-Biking Trails, Golf and Moonridge Wildlife Zoo. Less than a 5 minute drive to shopping, dining, nightlife, boating, swimming, fishing and much more! Your vacation begins as you open the door and step into the perfect Great Room with large wood burning fireplace, beautiful hardwood floors, soaring open beam ceilings and expansive windows with breathtaking views of Big Bear Lake, National Forest and the San Bernardino Mountains beyond. The large kitchen beckons you with plenty of room and counter space for multiple chefs and is fully stocked with every amenity you will need. No one slaves alone in this kitchen as your family and guests can gather round the large granite breakfast counter to lend a hand or just sip some wine or coffee and enjoy the conversation. Chef doesn’t want help in the kitchen? Let everyone sink in to the couch, put their feet up and stretch out in front of a roaring fire, watch the game on the huge flat screen TV or just gaze out at the never tiring view, while the chef still gets to enjoy the company and conversation. Take advantage of the warm afternoon sun and move the party outside to the expansive deck, fire up the grill, sit on the deck swing and watch the sunset over the lake. A little stiff from hiking, biking or day on the slopes? Take a relaxing soak in your steaming hot tub with room for 6+.

This upscale immaculately maintained cabin can cater to almost any taste. It provides two levels with 1400 sf for you and your guests to spread out in comfort. The upper main floor is the entry level and is handicap accessible. In addition to the great room, it provides a spacious master bedroom with king size bed, large closets and flat screen TV. The “bunk room” at the end of the hall is equally accommodating for adults and kids. It provides a very comfortable double bed with a twin upper bunk and two more twin beds. There is a full bath across the hall from the master with beautiful tile and wood decor. The stairs off the great room will take you down to “The” master suite hideaway. Here you will find beautiful pine board walls and ceilings, recessed accent lighting, a king size bed, seating area and of course, a flat screen TV. There is a also a private bath with shower and a laundry area with full size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Whether your are resting up stairs or down, you will always be comfortable with warm forced air central heating on cold winter nights, cool central air conditioning for those occasional hot summer evenings. Three Bears is meticulously cleaned and prepared for each guest with freshly laundered sheets and plenty of bath linens. There is off street parking for 3 cars and room for your boat or OHV trailer as well. Your enjoyment and comfort is always our number one goal.

Come on up and enjoy this exceptional mountain retreat!

Beautiful view, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family Thanksgiving weekend. We had plenty of room, enjoyed the spa at night, and were close to all the restaurants and attractions without being in a crowded area. We will definitely rent this home again!

Relaxing and refreshing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great relaxing and refreshing escape from the daily grind of Southern California. The views are unbeatable, cabin is clean and bright, and the jacuzzi provided a perfect end to each evening!!! The owner Kerry was so easy to work with and the property manager Lysa responded to any needs promptly. We will definitely keep this cabin on our radar for future visits.

Second Stay Here and Loved It Again!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to the cabin and we really enjoyed ourselves. We came with another couple and they were shocked how nice the cabin was. I like to stay here because you get the Big Bear Cabin feel with amenities and comfort. The place feels new and fresh and there is a lot of sunlight with an incredible view. Working with the owner and property manager is a breeze. Make sure to take a morning hike around the neighborhood and take advantage of their beautiful family room fireplace. Thank you!!!

Wonderful Big Bear Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four very much enjoyed this well appointed Big Bear House. The location was ideal, being at the top of Moonridge Drive, away from the traffic and high enough to see the surrounding mountains and Big Bear Lake. Our favorite spot was the huge deck with views, Jacuzzi and cool breezes. There is three large TV's, plenty of bar seating along with a fully stocked kitchen. The VRBO owner is a pleasure to work with and the local property manager can be reached via text. We highly recommend this rental and are looking forward to a repeat visit!

Great peaceful quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last summer, and would be happy to rent it again when we return to Big Bear. We loved the very quiet location, we didn't want to be in town. So peaceful to sit on the big porch (or in the hot tub!) next to the pine trees enjoying the view, and walk right up the quiet street to hiking trails -- so I could take a little hike before breakfast while others slept in. There were also quite a few mountain bikers on the trails on the weekend, but otherwise not very many people (but FYI the neighborhood itself is too hilly for younger kids to bike around). The property had plenty of outdoor space for our young kids to explore. The backyard is fenced (it's on a slope, so only useful for kids and dogs). Everything about the house itself was very nice and comfortable, everything is newer and very clean. One thing to be aware of is the steps to the downstairs bedroom/bathroom and laundry area are steep, so not so good if you have trouble with your knees or hips, but our 2-yr-old was fine on the stairs (younger baby/toddler would not be). The main floor is easy to access, with a deck ramp up to the front door. Also, the dining table is pushed up against the wall -- to pull it out to use all sides, you would have to scoot the couch over. So we mostly used the counter eating area -- which my mother-in-law preferred anyway as it was easier for her as the main cook to access and serve. The dining table became the "little kid table". The photo of the bunkbed room is not current -- there is a twin bed where the white chair is pictured, and another twin trundle under the bunk. All in all, a really nice. peaceful vacation home!
