Few properties can compare to this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin/home boasting amazing lake views, in a wonderful central location near the lake, village shops, entertainment and restaurants. The artful custom interior delivers the perfect balance of mountain zen meets restoration hardware resulting in a beautiful, luxurious, cozy retreat…the kind of place where lasting memories can be made. Offering 2 bedrooms (one cal king, one queen plus bunk beds) and a full pullout sofa bed in the great room allowing for many different sleeping configurations. The 2 bathrooms are rich in texture and custom details with spectacular furniture-style vanities, granite countertops, custom tile shower/bath with extra deep soaking tub and 3/8" tempered glass enclosures. The floor plan offers a large 'great room' with a stunning rock fireplace, 60' flatscreen hi def smart tv, foosball, stunning buffet/bar, distressed wood-style flooring and beautiful pine tongue and groove ceilings. The sectional couch has a chaise on one end and a recliner section on the other end. The open kitchen has tons of storage, gorgeous granite slab counters with full slab backsplash and wonderful stainless appliances. The kitchen is beautifully equipped, with knife block, custom cutting board, electric tea kettle, beautiful dishes and flatware and quality cookware. The spacious, composite deck overlooks the huge yard with its stunning lake and treed view (lakeview dependent upon lake level at time of stay). It is the perfect place to watch Big Bear's amazing fireworks display. There is a gas BBQ with propane provided, and an artful cable railing to give the least obstructed views possible. The parking is level and the property is dog friendly for those who want to travel with their canine family members. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV with blu ray players and the ceiling fans that are truly special. The sheets are oh so soft and the blankets, bed and bedding have been chosen with comfort in mind. Down the stairs of the back deck is a fenced dog yard so your doggie can be outside during your trips to the store or to The Village. For the comfort of our guests we do offer Air Conditioning at $25.00 for the first two days and $10 for each additional day upon request. So much has gone into making this a spectacular retreat for all who experience it…We invite you to experience it for yourself!

About Karen & Tim Lavrouhin
Tim and Karen Lavrouhin started by purchasing a second home in Big Bear and coming most weekends to enjoy all Big Bear has to offer. They fell in love with Big Bear and went about reinventing themselves. Karen became a top 10 Big Bear realtor. For fun and profit together we have built or remodeled over 85 homes in Big Bear. Since it all started for us with renting cabins and homes in Big Bear we have set out to create vacation rental properties that provide a truly special experience and keep guests returning and sharing these special properties with their friends and family.
Why Karen & Tim Lavrouhin chose Big Bear Lake
We bought this cabin because of its location close to the village and lake and because the views are so wonderful. The property required some imagination and we knew with our experience building and renovating Big Bear homes would allow us to create an extraordinary retreat. We have enjoyed offering a special Big Bear Bear vacation retreat for the past 8 years in Boulder Bay. We have shared our cabin with so many happy visitors. We feel certain our guests will appreciate the many custom features and thought that went into this cabins renovation.

Very well kept quaint cabin. Owners are very responsive
Only thing I don’t like is the advertised time it takes to get a security deposit back... would lik the use of that $ for the holidays... that deposit should be returned ASAP not up to 30 days
Pingston Thanksgiving 2018
The cabin was exactly like the photos showed - absolutely beautiful and very comfortable!. The kitchen had everything you could ever need. Everyone kept saying how great our stay was - we didn't want to leave! The yard was fantastic for our 2 little granddaughters - they loved being able to wander the yard, picked apples and pinecones, and formed their own drum band with sticks and pieces of bark they found around the yard. Bella the Beagle got to watch everything from her special spot on the sofa.Everything was awesome and definitely exceeded our expectations.We hope to come back again :-)
Thank you for the lovely review! We love to hear that you enjoyed yourselves and we hope to have you come back soon!
Cozy little cabin that feels big!
This cozy little cabin feels big. Perfect for our little family but we could have had a few guests and still been comfortable. I loved how the owners went out of their way to make sure our pup was comfortable at home by providing bowls, treats, and even a toy. I also loved how we were close to the village (the pup and I took a run to the village one day) but not too close, very quite and peaceful neighborhood, just what we needed. Thank you so much! I very much look forward to a return visit in the near future.
North of the Tension Zone :)
Had a wonderful time with my wife and dog. My Mother in Law and two sister in laws joined us for a day in town as well. The place is very well decorated with excellent taste. We hope to come back soon!
Everything One Could Want!
Loved this home. It was simply perfect. Amazing use of space. The owners are clearly home designers. Beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. We typically always bring our own sheets up to Big Bear but the owners were spot on about the linens. We will definitely be back. Absolutely wonderful.
Expensive but Nice
This cabin was clean and well appointed in a nice location. We enjoyed our stay as the cabin was very comfortable, the accomodations were "upscale" relative to other rentals and the location was convenient to the town center. Interaction with Lacey and the owners was a positive. I would encourage direct contact with Big Bear Fun Cabins versus renting through VRBO to avoid booking fee. The cabin is well insulated and pet friendly. It has a reasonable view of the lake and a nice fireplace that will keep the main room comfortable in cold weather. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have been updated. Also, the kitchen is very nice. Overall, I would recommend this cabin as you get what you pay for - it is a luxury retreat.
For those who wish to walk the village, lake and snow play area are nearby
