About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 bath Private Home with Lake Views & Amazing Decor & Finish Detail

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.

What makes this cabin unique

There is nothing like waking up, having your morning coffee or tea and taking in the beautiful lake and treed view. The plush carpet feels wonderful under your feet after a nights sleep in comfortable beds with amazing sheets and bedding. The extensively equipped Kitchen with its stunning granite, stainless appliances and beautiful dishes and flatware make it a pleasure to prepare meals with family and friends. With 3 flatscreen TV's including a 60' hi def smart TV over the wonderful rock fireplace in the great room, a spacious and comfortable couch, foosball table, dr dre beatbox, samsung appliances, custom vanities with granite countertops, hammered mirrors and custom 1/2 ' glass shower doors. The massive granite slab buffet/bar area is truly special and the lake views can be experienced from many locations. To spend time in this home is to experience mountain living at its best with high end features in a rustic yet refined environment. Treat yourself to something special...

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Perfect weekend getaway. Great little cabin that's all the cute & cozy you could ask for. Very well appointed, the kitchen has more utensils than ours at home, and super clean. Very warm feel with all the wood treatments, and the kitchen cabinets don't really photograph well; in person they are spectacular. We didn't bring our dogs this time, but now that we've seen the layout, feel comfortable in doing so next time. Everything was great and we highly recommend.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights on a weekend, and loved it! The cabin is just as advertised, excellent interior design, they thought through the details, which is PRECISELY what I appreciate most when booking a property. The kitchen is excellent, and the shower is a full 5-star you'd find in an expensive downtown hotel. Attentive owners, and will definitely consider coming again.

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable cabin for my wife, son and I. The owners do take care of the Cabin which is very nicely decorated and overall very clean. The dog fence was perfect for our little dog. The Cabin is not too far from anything that you might be doing while in Big Bear. I messed up the remotes and the owner was more than happy to stop by and set us up. The pictures included for this cabin are pretty accurate, so you definitely get what is advertised. I would definitely recommend this cabin.
