About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Enjoy this popular four-season resort community when you stay at this comfortable, three-bedroom Big Bear Lake vacation home! With a dog-friendly attitude, a private hot tub, access to a dock*, and lovely lake views, this is the ideal Big Bear retreat!

Located in the San Bernardino Forest, about 100 miles from Los Angeles, Big Bear Lake offers two ski resorts (both about 15 minutes from your doorstep), a charming downtown, and plenty of lake sports out on the water. Of course, with your own hot tub, you may be content to stay near the house and soak your cares away.

At night, you'll enjoy a wood-burning fireplace for warmth and ambiance, as well as a flatscreen TV, cable, and a DVD player. You'll also have a full kitchen for family meals and an outdoor deck, complete with views and a gas grill.

Three bedrooms and a loft offer a king-size bed, a queen, and four twins, easily accommodating up to eight guests. You can even bring your furry family members, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.

When you stay here, you'll also have WiFi, as well as a washer and dryer so you can explore Big Bear Lake worry-free. If clothes get dirty, just do some laundry at your vacation home!

For great winter skiing, Bear Mountain Resort and Snow Summit Resort are both a short drive away. And in summer, the lakeside will beckon with activities like swimming, boating, and more.

No matter how you choose to spend your time, this laid-back, family-friendly Big Bear Lake vacation home will be a perfect homebase for exploring this popular California resort town!

*Due to unpredictable water levels, we recommend renting a boat slip at a nearby marina, and using the local marina's boat launches. Please call Vacasa for details.*

About Vacasa, CA- Inland Empire Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

We love this little get away home on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time staying at this home. Love it. Private. Clean. On the water- ish. Fun for the whole family. Whether you are a fisherman, the barbecuer or just want to sit in the shade or on the famous swing bench. Everyone will be happy and relaxing in this scene.

Great BBQ and the grass was lovely for the kids to play on.

We will be back!

Just OK.

  • 3 of 5

Our first impression of the inside of the cabin was that it was a little odd smelling and very run down but definitely fine for our minimal needs (just very, very overpriced and disappointing, all things considering!!!). We mostly enjoyed the backyard, the lake, and the town. We were fortunate to have enough water in the lake to utilize the dock. The house is "pet friendly" although there are no fences so we had to make some temporary boundaries ourselves. The house also has a pretty big ant problem which made prepping/cooking meals in a tiny kitchen, with little to no counter space, even more of a challenge. The ants were also in the bathrooms. The back door was broken -- the top hinge of the door was rotted out so it made it very difficult to open/close and a potential hazard if the next hinge were to give way. The front door was also difficult to open because it rubs pretty hard on the carpet (floors are strange to walk on and have some interesting settling but that is only of concern to a future buyer -- the house is currently for sale). The lock box on the actual front door does not open which was not mentioned during check in so luckily we noticed another lock box behind us on the wood beam which worked and had a key in it. My husband and I found the bed in the first room down stairs to be extremely firm which was very unpleasant. Overall, the house worked out fine since we intended to enjoy the lake and the town and did not need a luxurious space but since I was asked to provide a review after my stay I am delivering the truth compared to the price we paid. I would never pay the asking price to stay there again but if the price was adjusted appropriately I would have no problem staying again! With regard to the price, I am extremely disappointed by all the hidden fees. The actual nightly price is DOUBLE the advertised nightly price after all of the taxes and fees are included. Mind you we still chose to book and understand that most places have fees -- but a hot-tub fee (non-optional) and an extra processing fee if you book thru vrbo (beware!!! -- only book on vacasa!) and a rather steep pet fee for being "pet friendly" (pets will not make this place worse and actually helped keep the squirrel/rodent problem at bay in the yard!!!). As a family that is used to flipping houses and doing a lot of DIY house work, we all agreed that we would NEVER buy this house (it's currently for sale).

Great weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Imagine sitting in your private jacuzzi after sunset, relaxing with your favorite beverage gazing at the star filled sky. This was just that for us. We had to families come together to celebrate the beginning of summer and enjoy some much needed time off. This home was the perfect spot! Located on an inlet just off of the lake, this home has a nice sized private yard, private dock, and plenty of space for our group of 8. The home was well equipped with everything we needed.

The kids had a blast fishing, and floating around the inlet on their tubes. The adults enjoyed the serenity of it all, and relaxing in the spa at night. The home is near outside amenities, but far enough away that you're not bothered by the sounds of traffic.

We can't wait to go back!

Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our little family . Beautiful inside every room offered enough privacy from the rest of the home. The jacuzzi after a day of snowboarding was the cherry on top.
