About Roger Herrick

Hi. My name is Roger Herrick and I have been involved in the San Bernardino mountain area since 1964 when my large family bought a cabin about this size. I have loved the mountain communities and have been involved in year round activities for over 50 years.

Roger Herrick purchased this house in 2010

Why Roger Herrick chose Big Bear

This one has the views. A Great Chalet is waiting for you. We restored to better than new condition and kept the Mountain Alpine charm. Perfect for the winter and summer sports people. Great parking and a fenced back yard for your pets. A weekend getaway for a breath of fresh air. Perhaps a romantic evening. The chalet has great kitchen that is ready for your cooking skills.

Many happy memories and we welcome you back to our Big Bear oasis.

What makes this house unique

Great weekend getaway. The views are great along with the large decks on the front and back. This cabin is a great value. You can enjoy the mountain cabin without owning it.

comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for our weekend wedding event. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen to work in and nice heater to take the chill away. We had dogs and there were nice walks to take around the area. We were quite happy with the cabin. Good location to get into town. The Wi-fi worked well for our computer needs. Definitely would rent again if in the area. Good working with Roger who was available if needed.

Great value, perfect size for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

Good experience. Great size for a couple but could easily acommodate 4 people. Had eating and cooking utensils, cleaning supplies and even toilet paper. A little fenced in outdoor area for my dog which was nice. Only Cons of the this experience was the noise from the airplanes taking off and some minor stains on the walls, but all in all, great deal. I would come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brian for the positive review. The airplanes are usually pretty interesting but they can be little noisy at times. We're planning to do a little more painting inside. Thank you and will see you again in Big Bear.

Big Bear Buggy Run July 2017

  • 5 of 5

The Chateau is a nice, little rental. Not fancy, but clean and had what we needed for a weekend up in Big Bear for a buggy club event. Our family of 4 + large dog fit the cabin just fine and backyard is fenced for dog and added security. Only seating for 2 at the counter, no dining table, but it worked out ok as we ended up eating in shifts anyways and used the couch/coffee table as needed. During the hot days of summer (85+ degrees) the downstairs was definitely cooler than the loft, but we did ok by keeping both side french doors open to ensure a breeze at night. The stairs are kinda steep, so I would be cautious with elderly or small kids. Definitely know your Netflix code (we forgot ours), as most items on the TV require purchase so plan ahead with DVD's, etc. Plenty of parking up front for 2+ vehicles; pretty quiet neighborhood even though directly across from airport and back behind is a fairly busy road . We were not bothered by any flights during our stay; but it was cool to watch a small engine plane take off in the evening.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are always working to give our guests a positive experience. The planes are fun to watch and it is a quite area actually. The upstairs does cools off quickly with the windows open. Thanks again and see you in Big Bear on another vacation.

The cabin was as we expected

  • 4 of 5

If you read the reviews, you'll see the comments regarding the lack of curtains. Those comments are accurate, but really weren't a big deal for us. We just couldn't sleep in as long as we'd have liked. We had a great time and had good communication with Roger. Very recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the cabin. The curtains were added upstairs. Also there are new wood floors. We are working constantly to improve the property and our guest experience. We look forward to your return visit. With many return visitors year after year on the calendar that says something about their experience.

Cute and charming cabin. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was great. We did have a little hiccup when we first arrived, but Roger was extremely kind and was very helpful. There was so much snow! It was gorgeous. The only thing I would recommend is that he get a shovel for the property. Other than that such a great time. It's warm and cozy and the perfect distance from the mountain!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive response. It was a little bobble when you arrived. However, four feet of snow was the barrier. You handled it well and minutes later the heat system was on. Great job Heather and crew. Please come back for your next adventure. Roger
