About the property

One of the Largest Private Estates in all of Big Bear, this Luxury 9,500 square foot mansion, is situated on almost one acre of “Lake Frontage” land. With over 200 feet of private shoreline, enjoy fishing off of your private dock or cruise on the lake in our 24 foot Pontoon Boat, in the exclusive boulder bay. Its award winning custom design, breathtaking waterfront views, and remote seclusion, separates this property from all the rest.

Ideal for large groups and events, the property includes 9 Bedrooms and 9 Bathrooms and an elevator. Hide out from the cold snow with a nice swim in the indoor heated pool or heat up in the hot tub, large sauna or near the fire pit. Start each day in the fitness room overlooking the water. If it’s the summertime, host a barbeque on our 8 seat wet bar, play horseshoes and listen to music in the water’s edge gazebo. The kids will love the game room, while you enjoy a quiet movie or wrap around views from the great room.

We have a brand new 2015, 24 Foot, "Bentley" Pontoon Boat that you may use during your stay from April until October. Please just sign our release of liability and check-out instructions. We do request an additional deposit and nominal fee for cleaning and boat preparation. The use of the boat is optional.

Fantastic property with a private but convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen is well-stocked with everything but perishables; the (slow) wi-fi signal is fine in the main room and main level den but unusable almost everywhere else. Very poor mobile phone reception in the area (TMobile). Elliptical in the gym was broken. The pool was great, as was the pontoon boat. The outside grill sink was broken, and the grill itself was pretty dirty but cleaned up fine.

All nitpicks aside, the house is beautiful and in a great location; we had a great time.

Incredible Home and Lake Location

  • 5 of 5

Wow - not sure what else to say about this property besides, wow! We had a group of 12 guys and throughly enjoyed our weekend on the lake at this place. The pictures don't do the house justice and the layout is incredible for hosting large groups and entertaining. Also, the hosts went above and beyond to make our stay great including coordinating getting the pontoon in and fixing very minor problems that popped up (and to be expected with first ride of season). Overall, I cant imagine being able to find a better place for large groups/families.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay. We had THE BEST time! The house truly is as spacious and well laid out as the pictures (always a risk when booking online). The pool and jacuzzi were heated upon arrival. I was especially surprised by how well everything was stocked - spices in the kitchen, toilet paper, extra towels and sheets... My family and I would be thrilled to book again! Highly recommend.

Vanessa -Huge Cabin, poorly maintained

  • 1 of 5

This house looks nice and has a great view, but is very broken. Many of the light bulbs were burned out and the smoke detectors were chirping, there was no hot water to the kitchen sink and we had no hot water anywhere the first day. The Jacuzzi was VERY green and we were not able to use it, which was a bummer after a long day of skiing. I tried the dry sauna, but it never got more than 80 degrees and the pool water was cloudy. We complained that the slide didn't work and a repair man came out to fix it the next morning and pretty much moved in. He stayed for over 8 hours, wandering aimlessly through out the house without announcing his presence. He would sit at the kitchen table, talk on the phone, socialize with the kids, etc. Finally at 6pm, we asked him to leave and he refused as the slide was not fixed yet. At 7pm I found him downstairs in the bedroom area where my 14 year daughter was alone showering. He gave no notice of his entry and merely let himself in a side door which he left unlocked earlier. Given that the pool was not located downstairs but down the pathway, it made NO sense to me and i told him to leave as he had NO business being down stairs in the bedroom area. Rather than apologizing, he began to argue with me. Angry at the lack of respect and privacy, I removed him from inside the residence and told him I would call the police if he came back inside. I locked all the doors as I feared for my children's safety. This man had no business being where he was and we all felt unsafe the rest of the trip. Most of the kids were scared after this, and slept with the parents, rather then with their friends, because all day long he had been showing up in random places, trying to talk to the kids, creeping them out. When this was addressed with the owner, he defended his creepy maintenance man who then tried to claim we had more people than we should have, which was incorrect and threatened to keep our deposit if we wrote a bad review. We did eventually get our deposit back, but I believe if you are going to spend this kind of money on a rental, you should be aware, you aren't getting everything you pay for and don't ask for things to be repaired because the maintenance guy will never leave and lacks common courtesy to announce his presence when he enters the residence. We rent a house in big bear every year, but we will never stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately , some guests arrive with a pre-conceived plan of falsifying negative information in exchange for a discount on there stay. When the attempt is denied they blackmail you with the threat of posting a poor review. This is that example. I can assure future guests that these comments are completely false. Sincerely, Barret Woods Property Owner

HUGE Cabin - Great View

  • 5 of 5

Brought my company here for a weekend retreat and was pleasantly surprised that is was actually much bigger than it looks from the pictures. Kitchen, main dining room, and master suite were beautiful and first class all the way. Only downside was the heated pool wasn't very warm and definitely needs to be cleaned. Overall had a great stay here and would definitely come back, hopefully during the summer to try out the pontoon boat.
