About Suzannah & Luke de Kansky

We are a family of four who were born and raised in Southern California. We (parents) were able to enjoy Big Bear Lake in our youth and fell in love with the place. With its cool autumns, snowy winters and beach weather summers, we always dreamed of being able to own a home in Big Bear to share with our children, family, friends and guests. We recently had the opportunity to purchase this perfect home, "Grand View Escape". So close to Los Angeles, yet so far away. The perfect escape from our hectic daily lives. We look forward to hearing from you!

Easy access to The Village, the Marina and the ski resorts! Entering Big Bear Lake from the west, you're at the cabin in no time! No battling traffic while traversing the city. Peaceful, quiet neighborhood (great for family walks or bike rides), yet close to all of Big Bear's amenities!

Perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Suzannah’s spacious home. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub (with a view!). Plenty of room for everyone in this house, and the game room was a plus! We walked to The Village for dinner, and it is only a few minutes to drive to the marina. We will definitely be back!

A Fun Fantastic Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Great View Escape during the first weekend in August (2018), it was 10 of us (family & friends) and a baby with a couple small dogs - and we were there to celebrate my wife's B-Day. What an absolutely great time we had! The Great Room is a fantastic place to hang out, while the deck is just simply SPECTACULAR!!! There is enough natural shade to hang out during the day and high enough to feel somewhat secluded during the night. The view is awesome and there is nothing like soaking in the hot tub at night, after an eventful day, relaxing, sipping a drink and seeing a small meteor shower and the moon rising from the horizon... Just breathtaking. The rooms are spacious (except the downstairs one, they're average size), everything was clean and ready to use once we got there. In the summer days, we did find the rooms upstairs got a little warm and stuffy without much air circulation (there is no central air - which is true for much of Big Bear it seems), so the spare fans were very helpful. We had 5 cars with us (but only 4 parking spaces), so we parked the 5th car at an overnight parking lot (located around 553 Alden Rd 92315 - park anywhere there) which was super close. That's the last great thing I'll say about this place... the location is fantastic & ideal - you've got the Village super close (15min walk), two Marinas on either side (2min drive), and shops/fun stuff all within 5 mins of the house. The owner Suzannah was very nice and helpful and responded to all my questions promptly. Thank you again for having us in your lovely home, we look forward to coming back!!!

Overall a great and relaxing place to have our weekend at Big Bear Lake

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the location and overall had a great experience. A few recommendations: get new cookware (flaky Teflon isn’t good), a coffee grinder would have been a great addition to the kitchen, we didn’t realize the hot tub was set to 85 until we were ready to get in and it doesn’t warm up quickly, and lastly, the pool cues need to be replaced and the table refelted. Other than that, loved the place!

Perfect big bear retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great for hanging out with friends. Close walk into town and near plenty of activities and restaurants. Exactly as advertised. Very comfortable. Nothing felt out of date or run down. Hot tub and grill were great and easy to operate. Beautiful views. We had a great time.

Wonderful spot for a family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weekend in Big Bear Lake. For most of the group, it was a first time visit, and we can't wait to go back. The home was well-appointed with all the necessities. The game room and hot tub were a bonus and just having good family time cooking meals in the kitchen and relaxing on the deck on a sunny afternoon was just what the doctor ordered. Suzannah was extremely helpful and responsive. We look forward to a return visit!

Best location - Very Clean - comfortable - Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Great house close to town, the lake, hikes, and fishing spots. The kitchen has everything you need (and really nice deck grill) to cook and the house is very clean. The lake view from the deck is amazing.

The owner was responsive, organized, and ready to help with anything.
