From snow showers to spring flowers, we've got the charmer for you!
Bearfootin' is a private, forested, two-story, stone's throw from the water, first-tier lakefront log home with 7-person Catalina Spa housed in open-air mahogany gazebo, offering spectacular lake and mountain views and all the comforts of home! Set atop a hill amidst giant granite boulders and mature pines, Bearfootin' is high above the hustle-and-bustle of daily life. This Boulder Bay getaway is undeniably 'cute and cozy' yet elegantly sophisticated. This log home is endowed with floor-to-ceiling knotty pine throughout, having an open-trellis cathedral ceiling. Its charm is only enhanced by its custom mountain decor. Take some time out to cuddle up next to Bearfootin's massive, native-rock, woodburning fireplace... always a heart warmer!
For your apres-ski pleasure or any time, Bearfootin's seven-person Catalina Spa is the perfect aperitif to any day on the mountain or the lake! The spa is housed in a darling mahogany 'doll-house' style gazebo, providing guests with an added element of comfort and privacy. Looking out over the lake and surrounding mountains, it truly embraces all that nature has bestowed on this land!
Bearfootin' is located just a short walk around the corner to scenic Boulder Bay Park (walkout fishing pier, beach area, launch/rent kayaks, anchor boat, walking path, picnic tables, covered pavilion, public facilities), a 1-minute drive to Pleasure Point Marina (boat rentals of all sorts, fishing gear), 2 minutes to the Performing Arts Center, 4 to 5 minutes to the festive Bavarian-style Village of Big Bear (restaurants, pubs, coffee houses, bakery, shops & boutiques, galleries, 2 movie theaters), Alpine Slide (snow tubing~water slide in summer), horseback riding, mountain biking, zip line, swim beach (lifeguarded) and much more. Only 4.5 - 4.7 miles (Google Maps) to the slopes for our skiers and boarders!
We invite you to c'mon up and enjoy this lovely splendor. Rest assured, if loveliness were music, even bears would be dancin' at Bearfootin'... life's bear necessity!

I think the owner was very prompt in dealing with her. I appreciated that. The cabin is very old, old towels, sheets and dusty. My sons and I have allergies, so this is an issue. If you don’t care, it’s fine. There is no access to the lake, but if you sit on the porch, there is a view. Again, the owner was very nice. Cabin. Okay.
Gat cozy by the lake. Just needs a good cleaning lots of spider webs. Or would have got a 5 stars.
Amazing cabin no hi order Bay sleeps six ! Love it
Wonderful Cabin! Felt at home, but on vacay!!! :) Pictures do not do it justice!
We stayed the weekend of Feb 9th, 2018 to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and we had such a wonderful time! Our host Bridget was amazing and responsive and so sweet! The pictures of the cabin definitely do not do it justice. Everything was very clean, and it is decorated to give you the feeling that you are definitely in the mountains in a cozy log cabin. The living room was so comfortable with plenty of seating options on comfy clean couches and sofa chairs and windows with awesome views. We were two couples and there was plenty of room for us and more. The TV's have cable and Netflix. We lounged and played games around the coolest coffee table everrrr (we love to fish... you'll see it... it's awesome). The crackling fireplace added to our "mountain ambiance" and the heater worked great to keep the cabin warm. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances (coffee maker/toaster/blender/pots and pans/cooking utensils/wine opener/crock pot/everything) and plenty of plates, coffee cups, glasses, etc. The guys cooked with the gas bar-b-q grill out back which had a full tank of propane. We had a beautiful lunch in the back yard on the cool table and benches. The hot tub felt magical after a day of snowboarding, nice and hot. Super convenient to be able to wash our bathing suits in the laundry room (full size washer/dryer). There are two comfortable bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs (both with doors, felt private). The upstairs bedroom has TV and a queen bed, and a twin bed nicely tucked into the wall, which is perfect in the event that you don't use it like us. We got a little warm in the upstairs bedroom but we used a small fan that was provided and were very comfortable (Bridget thought of everything!). There is one bathroom, fully stocked including a hair dryer. Location is perfect! It's a quick drive to the slopes, less than 10 minutes. We rented our snowboards from Scotty's Ride Shop down the street on Big Bear Blvd, less than a 5 minute drive, for only $25!! We picked them up the night before and dropped them off on our way back to the cabin when we were done since it's on the way anyway. Less than a 10 minute drive to Walgreens and Kmart. Plenty of room in the driveway for our two cars. Bridget has a list of very easy and clear instructions to follow for arrival and departure. We drove trash to dumpsters at Fire Department down the street, super easy (it's a Big Bear thing). Can't THANK YOU enough Bridget!! Your home is beautiful!
Great place to settle in for a weekend with your girlfriends and do nothing. Easy hikes and great views. It is in a very quiet location with just a few houses on the same dead-end street. Small kitchen and bathroom but who wants to spend their time in those places. Great sitting table outside with fantastic views. Only thing I felt missing was a swing to sit in on the front porch. Great place to come back to when it snows.
Cozy cute cabin perfect for family
Great cozy space, perfect for our family of 3. Loved the fireplace and spa, was super clean, fully stocked, and the owner was very responsive. Internet was spotty at best, but we had a hotspot so not an issue for us. Great location near downtown and close to direct lake access.
want to relax this is the place
Bridget You don't realize or maybe you do, that you have a gem amongst the trees.
I melted away years of stress in a matter of days staying here. The views
are spectacular, the cabin soooo cozy. I will recommend to everyone that I
know; if they're heading to Big Bear this is the place to stay
Thanx for everything
