About Pamina Barkow
We are a family of four who love the mountains. We live in Orange County and every weekend we can, we go to Big Bear to enjoy the beautiful setting. We own two properties close to one another in Big Bear and have taken great pride to bring both homes down to studs and rebuild them. We love architecture and design and with each property have tried to stay true to the original feel of the home. We hope that you will feel at home on our properties the way we do.
Pamina Barkow purchased this House in 2016
Why Pamina Barkow chose Big Bear Lake
When we walked into this property, it was clear that the home had great bones but that it badly needed a lot of work. It had sat on the market ready for someone to take it on. It has been a year long undertaking but very much worth it. We love the location of this home-- we walk to the village, walk to the lake and we love hiking close to the forest. Aside from that, this home is located so perfectly to let light in-- that's hard to fix on a home no matter how much remodeling is done. We love that there is a very open family room/kitchen/dining room so we can spend time together no matter what we are doing.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite unique thing about this home is that there are tons of Blue Jays-- hence the name of the cabin. If you are sitting in the jacuzzi or at the outdoor table, just look up, you are bound to see a number of little colorful birds, and in particular, blue jays. This is great part because of the serene, quiet setting and how many trees you will see on the property and the adjacent properties.

Love this place so much!
We come to stay here every year and there’s just no better place! It’s so comfortable and feels like home and the kids LOVE IT! It has everything you need and more. The location is the best and it’s so nice to have a private jacuzzi to warm up in after playing in the snow. Thanks for another wonderful vacation!
Relaxing stay for 4 adults and 1 baby
My husband and I, his parents and our 6 month old baby had a wonderful time staying in this house. I appreciated that there was plenty of room and privacy for all of us. My husband and I slept in the bedroom downstairs and our baby slept in the bonus room right across from us since she is used to having her own room. The beds were comfortable and had nice bedding on them which I always appreciate. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely! I really enjoyed taking the baby for walks and looking at all the nice/interesting houses. We would definitely stay here again!
2nd trip loved it!
This was our 2nd trip to the Cozy blue Cottage and we had a great time. House is clean and newly renovated. Close to village and slopes.
Pamina was also great to work with and helped us resolve a reservation issue directly!
Beautiful, perfectly located cottage!
This is our second time staying at this cottage and it is so perfect for families! Especially little ones cause there is a sledding hill directly across the street which makes life so much easier! The cottage is always super clean and has everything you could want! Thanks for having us back!
We are in an amazing location-- very close to the village, walking distance to lake and a short drive to all the slopes
