Why Donny and Evelyn Chen chose Big Bear Lake
We fell in love with Big Bear Lake the very first time we visited, and ended up buying this home just 3 months later! We chose this property because we love vacationing and entertaining, and this house was a perfect fit. The location is truly unbeatable, and the house comes furnished with all the entertainment options we want in a lake house. We just finished a major renovation to add more bedrooms to the house and to modernize the rest of the house. With true lakefront access, great amenities, and walking distance to the shops, this is rare property for Big Bear. We know that you'll enjoy your time in this home as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
There are very few homes that are on the lake and in the Village of Big Bear, and yet the home is still on a quiet street that is tucked away from traffic. You can easily walk to the restaurants and bars in the Village, and your teenaged kids can walk to the Arcade, Bowling Alley, and Movie Theater nearby. In the summer, you can rent a boat or jet skis for a full day by walking to the nearby marina. In the winter, you can spend all day at the slopes and watch the sun set across the lake from the hot tub or fire pit. This house really has the best location and amenities to fully enjoy Big Bear Lake all year round. Also, Donny is a self-described tech geek, so you can be sure that the home has unique benefits such as the best wifi without dead spots throughout the entire house, DirecTV, Apple TVs, a dedicated Netflix account, Xbox Onesystems, , electronic locks for keyless entry, automated exterior lights, and a heated driveway to keep your cars from getting trapped in the snow. We also provide basic toiletries, bathroom and kitchen supplies, and humidifiers in each of the bedrooms. Compared to many other rental properties, we put a lot of effort into making this a place that our family enjoys, and love sharing the home and experiences with our guests!

Beautiful home with the perfect location. All the amenities you could ask for plus more. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay.
Great pick! Did not disappoint! The property is well situated. It was walking distance to The Village and a few minutes drive to ski resort.
We entairtained and housed 19 people over the weekend and there were plenty of room for sleeping and entertaining.
Owners were very helpful. They were quick to read and respond to emails and calls.
Definitely would book again!

We did receive a response regarding the broken sofa leg on 1/24/19. On 1/27/29 I submitted a summary indicating our experience. This included our overall positive feelings and our frustration over broken oven door and 3 broken coffee makers. This was reported via email and photos on 1-24-19 with no response.
Beautiful home with an incredible location!
I have vacationed at big bear many, many times in the past but this was the first time I had stayed in such amazing accommodations! The home was absolutely beautiful and gave you a modern cabin vibe while being in The Village. You are literally a short walking distance from the lake, restaurants, grocery stores and miscellaneous shops for all your needs which makes it very convenient! The home features everything you need from A-Z and no expense was spared by the home owners to make sure you have a comfortable stay. The wrote it can sleep up to 10 but I would say up to 20 because it was so spacious and had a lot of rooms with plenty of beds and bathrooms. I absolutely loved it and will definitely check back with them first when I return to big bear!
Can't say enough good things about this place. Plus, location, location, location!
My daughter booked our stay for Jan. 3-5, 2018, for my 60th birthday. There were 18 family members, 13 adults and 5 children. I honestly can't remember the last time I had so much fun on a get-a-way. This place had it all and we used it all; the pool table, the poker table, the shuffle board table, the ping pong table, the barbecue, and the fire pit. Well,I guess we didn't use all of it, it was a little too chilly for the hot tub. The only place we drove to was the Snow Play area so the kids and some of us adults could slide down the hills. The owners keep this place very clean and well stocked and the location was right on the lake. You can walk to the lake right out of the backyard and town was so close we walked there too. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. This place even has a washer and dryer and a separate ice making machine. I would loooove to go back with my family again during the summer. Don't pass this one up!
Second year in a row here
Love the place. Love the area. It’s becomig tradition really fast. Very few issues but If there are any they are resolved very quickly. And if they can’t fix it they take care of you. Excellent excellent place. Out of all my years going to big bear every New Years... this is by far the best place we’ve stayed.
This is the best location in Big Bear Lake. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants in The Village, lakefront access and views, minutes from the ski slopes, and walking distance to Big Bear Marina.
