Beautiful and spacious home with all amenities needed.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 12 people! The house is like your own, with everything there. Full kitchen made for cooking and enough to serve 12 guesses. Extra blankets and pillows for everyone. Wifi and spacious game room that kids will love. Couldn’t park in driveway, but street is big enough for side street parking in front of house. Thank you Eric for all your help.

Even more beautiful than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house isn't full of natural light and is so cozy. We loved the big kitchen as well. We had a wonderful family vacation and would definitely consider staying here again.

big snow

  • 4 of 5

best ever snow play area across the street. nice place with comfortable feel. owners seem very nice. we arrived 2 days after heavy snow so there was no driveway parking and VERY limited street parking. we were not able to enter/exit through the front door because ice on stairs made it impossible. (used bedroom sliding door to enter/exit). after booking with vrbo, was disappointed to learn we needed to leave $150 cash cleaning deposit in house upon departure.

Amazing home with so much space!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, Chris and Erica were very flexible and extremely understanding.

My family and I travelled to Big Bear for my birthday the weekend of a huge snow storm (1/20-1/22). Since road conditions were poor the day of check in, Chris allowed us to push our stay a day back. Given that there were severe weather alerts for the entire weekend, Chris also suggested we switch our dates to any other available weekend. However, we all had approved time off from work for this trip and it would be difficult to reschedule all of my guests. So off we went….

The home is amazing and fully stocked with anything you may need! I have absolutely no complaints about the home or the owners. Both Chris and Erica respond quickly and they are just one call/text away! My family is forever grateful to Chris and Erica because they graciously allowed us to stay an additional night due to roads not being plowed and towing trucks not being able to access the road on which the house sits (our car got stuck in a ditch).

I would definitely stay here again! There is great space in the front and back of the home where sledding can be done and there are many excellent books and games within! Also, Netflix included in living room!!

There is one thing…. Access to the home from the main road has a couple hills and plowing does not occur often. If planning a trip during snowy conditions, make sure you have a vehicle with 4WD and snow chains. Many cars get stuck going up the hills to the home! (Chris has alternate routes to the home if vehicles are blocking your way on the main route). We were not aware of the hilly route and drove a Sienna van and Camry… The Van needed an extra manual push (literally) to make it up the hill and the Camry had no chance (chains and all).

Thank you again for an excellent stay!
