About the property

Log Cabin, 2 Private Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay in your cozy cabin! My family felt very comfortable. We loved the views and we had lots of fun in the hot tub! It was a very unique experience having all the boulders in our own backyard - we enjoyed climbing on them. We also loved all of our rooms. Thank you so much for making our saty in Big Bear a great experience!

Beautiful, warm, cozy, perfect location. Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't help but smile the minute we opened the door. The cabin looks like a home you would see in a decorator magazine. It is so warm and cozy...even more impressive than the pics on your website. Such a nice break for my husband and I. We have 3 young boys, we could just let them go. The cabin is very secluded (and safe, no thru streets/no cars), yet it is in close proximity to everyting. Don't think you can find a more perfect location!! There is something to do every minute, yet is also very tranquil. Although it is perfect for families with kids, I think we're coming back alone next time, it is also very romantic. We could just picture ourselves peacefully hanging out on the deck sharing a bottle of wine overlooking the beautiful view of the lake. Bridget, you were so accomodating, don't know if you decorated the house or you had it done, but it is breathtaking the minute you walk in the door. What a treat!!! The whole family loved it, loved it, loved it!!!! Thank you so much!!

Cozy and comfortable cabin for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four wanted to have a mini vacation at a beautiful location in a cozy cabin and boy oh boy, did we achieve our mission. We pulled up to [the pretty steep] driveway and immediately saw the cute little cottage we were hoping to find. Everything inside was clean and had everything we needed right at our fingertips. The only downside is there was only two trash bags provided for our five-day stay which wasn't enough. But the bedrooms were a good size and having a big flatscreen TV in the upstairs bedroom was a nice treat as well. The bathroom is on the small side but it's definitely not a reason to shy away from this place. You're less than five minutes away from a plethora of great restaurants and a beautiful atmosphere. My family is definitely going back to Big Bear and we might even make the dates go around when the cabin is available. It really is that good.

Charming cabin!

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Bearfootin'! Cabin is older but has a wonderful charm to it. Terrific views of the lake! Awesome boulders surround the property. Jacuzzi with views was a great bonus. Loved our stay. Definitely recommend!

Cute, homey cottage near attractions of Big Bear Lake. Bridget was very nice to work with.

Cute, homey cottage near attractions of Big Bear Lake. Bridget was very nice to work with. Very responsive and genuinely kind. Cottage could use some updating, but it was comfortable. Bathroom is for tiny people, but we understand that space is limited. Very nice experience.

Map

Bearfootin' is located in a convenient locale to all points of interest and activities throughout the four season's Big Bear Lake Mountain Resort.

Boulder Bay Park: The cabin is just a short walk around the corner to scenic Boulder Bay Park, renowned as one of Big Bear's most-beautiful waterfront sites (great photo-op!)! It offers a walkout FISHING pier, always hungry duckies, beach area, picnic tables, covered pavilion, walking path, rent/launch kayaks, paddle board, anchor boat, public facilities . . . walk to Blanca & Pierre's Restaurant (see menu online) and Boulder Bay Market (convenience items, firewood, fishing license) on the east side of the park.

Pleasure Point Marina: The marina is a one-minute drive from the cabin, offering boat rentals of all types, as well as fishing gear.

The Village of Big Bear: Just a 4 to 5-minute drive from the cabin, the festive, Bavarian-style Village is beautifully landscaped to include fire rings to warm by during the frostier times of year! You'll enjoy coffee houses, restaurants, pubs, galleries, boutiques, fudge factory, beef jerky, ice cream, old-fashioned candy, strolling, people watching, window shopping, Christmas corner (during the holiday season) and much more!

Hiking: One of the best trails in all of Big Bear is located within walking distance from the cabin, toward the dam, just off the blvd. You'll want to be sure to checkout "Castlerock" ~ spectacular photo-op at the top, taking in all the elements of the Big Bear Lake landscape!

Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain: Enjoy snow tubing by winter and a water slide during summer. Fun for the whole family! Located approximately 3-minutes from the cabin.

Horseback Riding: There are stables located at Magic Mountain for your riding pleasure, 3 to 4-minutes from the cabin.

Mountain Biking: There are many locations throughout Big Bear for scenic, challenging riding, or a leisurely cruising (bike rentals available). If the latter, you'll enjoy the Peddle Path that is a 4-mile ride around Big Bear Lake. If your up for the adventure, take the Sky Lift up Snow Summit (summer months) and bike down . . . you may need a BBQ fix mid-mountain! See trail maps or contact the Visitor's Center for more information.

Snow Summit & Bear Mountain Resorts: For our Skiers & Boarders, you are from 4.5 to 4.7 miles door-to-door for exciting downhill adventure! Inquire within for lift ticket/ski pass information and for hours of operation! Swoosh! Swoosh! :)

Super Market: The Vons and Stater Brothers markets (as well as Blockbuster, CVS, Walgreen's, Radio Shack...) are both 5 minutes door-to-door, directly off Big Bear Blvd, traveling east from the cabin.
