Check out these low Fall rates!

Before I rave about Sugar Bear a few points that are helpful using Homeaway/VRBO:

1) If you are trying to book today the site won't allow it, however, I will : ) Just send me a message via the "Contact Owner" and if it's free we can arrange it.

2) Extra guest fees can be waived for small children again, use the "Contact Owner".

3) We have two cabins right next door to each other, in case we are booked here or you'd like to bring the whole gang you can check out Sugar Cub Lodge. Just cut and paste this property id above in the search for location top of the page: 4285330

Now all about The Bear...

Everything is first class, modern comforts yet still a true mountain cabin with stone fireplace and pine wood accents galore! It is our goal to keep Sugar Bear a great mountain escape...walk in, fall in love and enjoy! We love the private street, just a few cabins down the street and it's National Forest, best sled hill steps away. No cars, but plenty of birds, beautiful oaks and clean mountain air! Views off decks make for great outdoor relaxing! Tennis/b-ball/skateboard park an easy walk. 15 Minute drive to skiing, dining, the Village yet away from it all.

Large HD Flat screen tucked away in a pine armoire. Comfy King size beds (we get many compliments on these!), first class kitchen and great room for entertaining. Top of the line spa on a private redwood deck, only you and the stars!

And...take it for granted Sugar Bear is always immaculate! As owners we are picky....expect the best!

What renters love about Sugar Bear:

~~The high pine log ceiling in the great room

~~Tasteful decor, comfy and personal, true home away from home

~~Kitchen layout near the living/dining/island bar

~~Kitchen contents for cooking up a great meal

~~Cleanliness and lack of clutter

~~Books, movies, games, puzzles and for both adults and kids

~~Beautiful views off the front porch and back deck

~~The spa!

~~Sled hill and park steps away!!!

~~We have a plug in the garage for the Tesla : )

About Tara

It is our goal to keep Sugar Bear (search for 928937) and Sugar Cub (search for 4285330) two great mountain retreats…walk in, fall in love and enjoy! You can always assume our cabins are immaculate and in tiptop shape. Come to take in the views of the oaks and pines, listen to the birds and the beautiful sound of the strong mountain wind. Hiking, boating, skiing or hunkering down in the cabin for good meals, beautiful views, movies, game time, spa time. We love it all and we welcome you to experience all Big Bear has to offer. Sugar Bear and Sugar Cub Lodge await you with open paws!

Tara purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Tara chose Big Bear

What a great question! Why did we buy this property….you will know the minute you open the door, : ) A true log cabin with spectacular mountain decor creates the perfect escape. We love the private street, dead ends at National Forest with a sled hill steps away. Rarely see a car, although plenty of birds, beautiful oak trees and clean mountain air! Rent both cabins and bring the entire gang.

What makes this cabin unique

Log, Log, Log, great sunlight in the cabin, wonderful covered front porch with a view of the tree tops. The Spa. The Great Room Mountain Style. The Great Kitchen. No Junk Drawers! The Empty Garage! Steps to the National Forest with a great sled hill and the park in the opposite direction with tennis, basketball and a skate board park!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Submitted on our previous website:

"I almost don't want to tell anyone about this because I am kind of selfish about things I love, but being that this is the holiday time of year, one good deed deserves another. The place is fun, great looking / feeling and peaceful. The high ceilings and wood put you at ease right away. I sat at the kitchen bar for hours reading and sipping wine. My two kids were in heaven. Tara has a ton of games, puzzles and toys for them to play with. They didn't touch what we brought up. The kids room is so fun, my son now wants bunk beds. Watched the laker game and all sorts of football on the flat screen and slept like a stone in the master bed. What is really unusual is that everything is where you need it. The toilet backed up once and in the first cabinet I looked...there was a plunger. Problem solved. Needed to make some tea... tea kettle was in the first place I looked. Its like you're at home, with snow. Could go on about the nice hot tub on a snowy night, lounging by the fire or walking to the Natl. Forest, but then YOU might book my next trip here. Tara is nice and easy to deal with and left very clear instructions. We have booked many vacation homes and these were the most easy to decipher. Kudos!"

Cozy Cabin!

Perfect for our family of 5. The kids loved all the games and books and the sled hill. I LOVED the kitchen. It had everything I needed for 3 all meals! Location was perfect and communication with Tara was super easy. She was great!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well stocked, clean and housed 4 adults and 4 kids comfortably. We used the well equipped kitchen constantly. We were so happy with that kitchen! We had many excellent snowball fights out front. The neighborhood was quiet. The hot tub was hot and clean. There was a great sledding hill a few doors down. The kids loved their room with the bunk beds and the Netflix enabled TV. The adults loved that the kids were so happy with that room. The description on VRBO was totally accurate. We will definitely be staying here again.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review to read on this New Year's Day! I love my kitchen so it is wonderful hearing about families enjoying their time cooking great meals! Ok...news...with all the amazing sales going on I purchased a 14 piece Kitchen Aid Stainless Set...so, I plan on keeping the kitchen in top shape for all of us! Thank you so much and can't wait for you to return!

Best Cabin Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite cabin. We've been coming to Sugar Bear for years but this year it was booked. We stayed next door at their new cabin which is great too! This cabin rocks everything, feels like a log cabin, you have a great kitchen, room for everyone. The spa. Every year we come back it looks the same, clean and new. Not sure how Tara does that but it works.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We came up in the summer and decided this was our Thanksgiving destination! Our family of 7 fits perfectly and this cabin is cozy and super clean! The kitchen is fun to cook in and has everything you need. We love taking walks, the kids bring their bikes and there is a park you can walk to. My husband and I play tennis. It’s like summer camp! The living room is perfect for movie time, the front porch is my favorite spot. Tara is there for any questions. I recommend this cabin to everyone although now I’m worried they might book it when I want to go.
