About the property



Designer owned cabin-style townhouse remodeled with all the modern conveniences with a rustic flair. The living area is located on the top floor, with a beautiful high vaulted A-Frame living/dining/kitchen area. The balcony located on the top floor overlooks the beautiful mountains of snow summit, has a new bbq for grilling, and seating for 4. We recently built a wood-deck on the base level, off the master bedroom for some chilling time - to enjoy coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the afternoon.

Our cabin-style townhome is 2 1/2 bedroom, 2 bathroom at the base of Snow Summit. Easy 4 minute walk to Snow Summit Ski Lift (summer sky chair). This is our families home away from home. We welcome any renter that will treat it like their own. We have 2 boys, so there are plenty of board & card games, videos, footballs & handballs. If you have a beach/vacation home, we are receptive to trades.


Living area. Brand-new furniture includes full size couch and love seat, 50' flat screen TV with DVD player (Charter Cable includes basic TV and on-demand), a 2 seater wood bench overlooks the wood burning gas fireplace (we provide the firewood). FREE WI-Fi. We have a land-line for local & emergency calls only.

Also new - coffee maker, blender, toaster, waffle maker dishes, cookware, glassware and cutlery.. Kitchen has a counter bar area with 4 bar stools. New dining area has seating for up to 8 people. We play a lot of games in our family, so we are fully stocked with card games, board games (backgammon & chess) among others, we have games for the whole family.

Foyer: For your convenience a stackable washer/dryer is in the closet

off the foyer. We provide detergent pods and dryer sheets.


Master bedroom/bathroom. New king size bed with Lacoste linens. 32' flat screen TV with DVD player. Brand new master bath with shower/bath.

Year-Round Location - winter and summer ski lift is basically in your backyard.

In the winter you wake up, pick up your skis & boots and walk over to the lifts. In the summer you walk to the scenic ski chair or Flying Squirrel Zip Line. Also, enjoy the many hiking and mountain biking trails. BB Lake is about a 1/2 mile down the road,

rent a boat, jet ski, or just head to the swim beach. After a day of skiing, mountain biking, hiking or boating take a short ride to Big Bear Village to enjoy great shops and new restaurants. Or just hang in the cabin, light the fire, cook, play games or watch your favorite movie.

We have all the conveniences of home. Come up and enjoy!

My family (5 of us -- four adults and one teenager) went to Big Bear Lake over the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. We had an excellent time at this cozy condo! This is our second time staying here. It has a rustic cabin feel which we simply adore! The pictures of the condo are exactly right especially the views from the balcony off the living area! We love the location of the condo because it is steps away from the Summit slopes, the grocery stores, 7-Eleven, shopping plaza, and The Village that is filled with such adorable shops and restaurants too! Everything that you would need to have a nice getaway is there in the condo including lots of games for everyone to play. Yes, it gets warmer downstairs than upstairs but we adjusted the temperature to make it cozy downstairs while we kept the fireplace going upstairs! It provided for a nice warm atmosphere while fixing meals. The best part for me was having my family either playing games at the dining room table, watching a movie in the living area or simply sitting at the breakfast bar while I prepared some of our meals! And I like that the owners allow you to use whatever is in their refrigerator or cabinets as long as you replace the items that are low. It definitely saved me some extra trips to the grocery store and a few bucks too! My granddaughter (13) enjoyed being outdoors riding the bicycle and scooter that were in the condo. We enjoyed walking on the path that leads straight to the Summit just around the back of the condo. We met friendly neighbors and lots of doggies!! Just a fun time for all of us. Looking forward to going back a third time!

Modern, clean and great location property

  • 5 of 5

The property was small but very comfortable. It had everything that you need. It was very clean and that is usually what I look for in any property. My son has environmental allergies and this property was perfect for him. On top of that, the design was very modern. The owners added great design touches throughout the rooms. The best part of this property is the location. 8 minute walk to slopes and to the children school ski center. It is so convenient!! I would love to come and stay here again!
