IDEAL LOCATION

Although it looks and feels like Montana surrounding our home we are actually located in one of the most desirable and convenient neighborhoods in Big Bear, just 4 blocks to the slopes and RIGHT across from the ski shuttle pick up for Snow Summit and Bear Mountain ski areas.

We are a short walk, bike ride or drive to all attractions in the Big Bear Area. We are walking distance to Starbucks, Vons Supermarket, restaurants, shops, Blockbuster, the lakeshore, miniature golf, and Meadow Park with swimming beach, tennis, sports fields, fishing pier, picnic tables and play structure. And now Zip Line tours are available nearby.

The free public MWD East Boat/Jet Ski Launch Ramp is only a mile from our door and we are just a block to Elevations Day Spa.

Take a stroll to the lakeshore through our upscale (and not hilly) neighborhood dotted with beautiful old-growth pines and stately home.

Take a short bike ride from our door to the tree-lined 3 mile paved 'Alpine Pedal Path' along the north shore of beautiful Big Bear Lake. Stop and enjoy the informative Big Bear Discovery Center and the numerous trails for all levels of hiking. No bike? Rental shop is only 2 blocks away.

For mountain biking Big Bear is hard to beat. We are central to a network of trails for riding of all levels. And don't miss riding down a choice of great trails from the top of Snow Summit Sky Chair, rising 1100' above the valley floor.

Big Bear Lake itself is great for fishing, water skiing, jet skiing & sailing. If you bring your own boat we are 1 mile to the free public East Launch Ramp on the north shore with a day use picnic area and beach. We are 1.5 miles to Big Bear and Pine Knot Marinas which also have launch ramps as well as boat and jet ski rentals.

We are 3 minutes to quaint Big Bear Village with a variety of shopping from antique stores to unique clothing & souvenir shops, restaurants, arcade, 2 multi-screen movie theaters, bowling, candy & ice cream parlors, etc.

We are 5 minutes to must-see Moonridge Zoo with bear, buffalo, eagle, coyote, birds of prey, deer, reptiles, mountain lion, etc. Call them for decent tours and feeding schedules.

Unlike many rental homes in Big Bear, our flat lot and flat neighborhood makes access very easy during icy or snowy conditions. No struggling to make it up or down steep streets, driveways and walkways during winter months.

OUR GUESTS LOVE IT

With the unusual combination of the numerous amenities mentioned above along with the pool table, ping pong table separate lounge area roomy spa all in such a fantastic location, EAGLE POINT ESCAPE is year- round favorite vacation spot for families, couples and groups.

About Gary A

Gary is a building contractor and Mara is an early childhood educator. Along with our two grown sons we have a great love of the outdoors and of the Big Bear area. We feel very fortunate to have such a beautiful home to share with our guests and enjoy working together to enhance it all the time. We are always on the lookout for that new fixture or decoration that will be just right...finding it is our idea of a perfect day.

Gary A purchased this house in 2005

Why Gary A chose Big Bear

We owned another home right across the street and observed this home taking shape during construction in 2005. We realized it was an exceptional design with great features and finishes. We sold the other home and bought this one brand new.

What makes this house unique

Eagle Point Escape offers everything a family could hope for in a vacation home. Four bedrooms including two master suites, gameroom with 3 game tables TV and leather sofa, 7 person spa on a large deck surrounding the home, very ample 'great room' with HDTV, Netflix and oversized sofa to seat just about everyone, large gourmet kitchen with island seating and countertops and a location that is arguably the best in Big Bear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I took a group of my recent high school graduates for a leadership retreat. The house had plenty of room for everyone to be in their space and place without crowding each other. The home decor was cozy and functional. This house has everything and I mean everything. We needed tape to post a sign, looked in the drawer and walla -- TAPE. The master bedroom was gorgeous. The kitchen was very spacious, which allowed to teach students how to cook. Plenty of places to relax inside and outside. Whether you want to read a book, watch a movie, relax in the jacuzzi, play air hockey, table tennis, or a game of billards, this house has something for EVERYONE. The location was perfect - walking distance to stores. Less than 5 minutes to the village. About 10 minutes from the lake for kayaking and more. We are already planning to schedule to visit in the winter. LOVED LOVED LOVED this house. It was awesome. Also, the owner was really nice and great to work with. They provide great instructions down to the finest detail for everything. Great house for families, romantic getaway, whatever...great property at a great price. You will not be disappointed.

Fabulous big bear retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Eagle Point Escape was a perfect home for a family vacation. We enjoyed our time in Big Bear and the house fabulous. There was plenty of room for everyone and something for everyone to do. The kitchen was fully stocked with supplies for all our cooking. The open floor plan made for lots of together time. The location was great. Close walks to the lake, playing pool, ping pong, and relaxing in the jacuzzi. Super close to lake activities and the Village too. Highly recommend.

Perfect Get Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a great weekend. If your looking for a big, cozy home this is the house for you. We where a family of 12. This home was perfect for all of us. Home accommodates all ages from adults to teens. We also walked to ski resort. That's how close you are to town. Great space outside to play in the snow. Kids really enjoyed it as we where able to run around outside and have snowball fights. This home dose not feel like a rental property. You totally feel like you are at home. Beds are comfy, fully stocked kitchen for those who are cooking a large meal or as we did it is great for outdoor barbecue. Decoration in the house are so cute and nicely furnished. The hubby and I are already in the talks with Gary about coming back. Kids don't want to stay anywhere else. Thank you very much Gary

Fantastic Location - Cozy Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people staying in this home (including 4 kids) and it was more than enough room. The couch in the living area is enormous and cozy. The beds are comfortable - everyone slept great, which is a huge deal for us when we're traveling. Also, when we had an issue with the satellite dish after a snow storm, the owner (Gary) was very responsive and got the service company on the phone to fix the issue. He even answered and helped us find the slopes (which we found out is literally walking distance for Snow Summit) when GPS sent us the long way around. I highly recommend this place.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway weekend with our toddler and another family with two toddlers.

This was the first time to see snow for all of our children. The front yard is perfect for building snowmen and pulling the kids in their sleds.

The home was very easy to get to and the directions for entering and use of all devices inside the home is very clear. This home was cozy and large enough to seat all of us comfortably for meals and for lounging around while the kids were napping.

This house doesn't feel like a rental property. It is fully stocked with everything from kitchen to bathroom needs to videos and books for the kids. We were so pleasantly surprised by all the attention to detail.

We are usually very particular about where we stay and this home was perfect for all our needs. It's also so close to the town and restaurants if you choose to go out for a meal.

Gary was super friendly and accessible if we had a question.

Our favorite parts of the house were the cozy fireplace and huge couch for visiting. The game room in the garage was also really cool. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were all updated. We did not use the hot tub since we have such young children, but for those of you with older kids I'm sure this would be a great perk.

We would absolutely recommend this home and stay here again.

A wonderful holiday rental in Big Bear Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gary and his wife's house in Big Bear Lake was spectacular! Gary was incredibly helpful and available throughout our stay for any questions of help. The house was beautifully appointed - with clean and comfortable linens and a great kitchen with lots of pots and pans - a cook's dream! We cannot say enough about the finished garage with a pool table, air hockey and ping pong table. We had to pull the kids out of there each night at 11pm! The neighborhood is really fabulous. You can easily take a walk with the family and you are so close to K-Mart and Vons. We would love to make this house a part of our yearly trip to Big Bear.
