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. Watch every NFL, NBA, and MLB game (Sunday Ticket and MLB Package) live in every room, including the pool, gym, spa, and outside gazebo.

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.

A very beautiful home, comfortable beds, breathtaking views,

  • 5 of 5

Breann and Chris were friendly, and extremely helpful. We had our brainstorming 2days with our team, filling every room. It was the perfect place as we sat in the lounge overlooking the lake, it was quiet, peaceful. The grounds had enough space for all our vehicles. The only improvement I would suggest is upgrading the pots and pans. They’re all Teflon which causes cancer. We had a friend bring in there own pots for us. Other than that I would definitely use it again. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Terrific house!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the house. It is large house which was important to our family of 16 and it was clean and well maintained.

We rented the boat which enhanced our experience.

Everybody in our family enjoyed being there.

Has everything, just needs a little TLC!

  • 4 of 5

July 2017

We were two families totaling 10 people. Everyone had their own rooms, the master suite was on the main floor and the second master and remaining rooms downstairs ( the kids were a bit spooked at first but settled right in). Unfortunately there wasn't a separate thermostat for AC downstairs so it was a bit stuffy for them ( they used various fans). The house offered everything: indoor pool, indoor jacuzzi and fitness room, pool table, games, tv's everywhere, fire pit, BBQ and gazebo and best of all, the pontoon boat! Loved loved loved the pontoon boat! Just a short walk down to the dock and right on the lake. Knowing that this house is a rental, it was a bit used and abused. Carpeting definitely needs cleaning and the mattresses were a bit to be desired. The appliances in the kitchen were old and dirty (ovens and dishwashers). We had just a few mishaps and questions,however, when we needed assistance, the manager of the property was pretty much on top of it (we wanted the pool slightly warmer). Overall, we had a great time and felt comfortable there for the 4 days we were there. FYI, make sure you close and lock outdoor trash bin. We had a visitor (bear) in the nighttime and didn't know until the morning when we saw bear prints and a bit of trash on the ground!!!

Great Lake Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the home is terrific, the house is large, main family areas are laid out nicely and easily handled our family of 15 (3 to 73). Although the house is a bit dated, you can see where the house is being remodeled/updated. Where the remodeling has occurred, it's nicely done. A very quiet neighborhood with ample parking for up to 7 cars.

Pros: The house was well stocked with toilet paper, dishes, glassware, pots and pans, towels. Beds were comfortable. Having 2 laundry areas was a plus (one up, one down). The pantry is fairly large and held most of our dry goods, lots of counter space in kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms everywhere, only a couple are en-suite. One nice thing, you never had to wait to use a bathroom there are so many.

The pool and patio area were wonderful as well as the outdoor grill/bar area. Very comfortable outdoor furniture. We had 4 great days of weather and then thunderstorms for 3 days which was fun to watch moving across the lake from all the large windows. We even had 3 hails storms come thru one afternoon ... in August!

The pontoon boat requires a walk thru to learn how to turn it on. Went fishing almost every day - never caught a thing. Just riding around the lake was great fun and relaxing.

Cons: Although we had a couple issues upon arrival, the owners were extremely responsive, easy to speak with and on top of them with everything corrected or scheduled to be corrected. We never received a check in walk thru, so figuring out the tv's, etc., in the house and outside took a while.

There was a lot of tall brush on the beach so we were unable to use that area to play games (volley ball, horseshoes, etc).

The carpets in the main living area upstairs and in master bedroom are dirty & stained and require cleaning. Some areas of the house (interior and exterior) need a bit more attention paid to them as far as cleanliness/maintenance goes - nothing major.

All in all, we had a great time at the Boulder Bay home and there was nothing really that spoiled our time away and being together. We were relaxed, comfortable, had enough to do and enjoyed ourselves.
