About the Owner

Our family is not photogenic. Everyone in our family has contributed something to the Boulder Bay Chalet to make it comfortable, cozy and relazing. The cleaning staff works hard to keep the Chalet clean and in the proper order so you can find everything you need. They must be doing something right because they get sizable tips frequently. We look at the Boulder Bay Chalet as a service for those in need of a vacation. If you can't find something to do there, you are not looking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy & April - Thanks for the 2 days at the Chalet. We all had a great time. It's always nice to be able to get away for a couple of days for family time. Everyone thought the Chalet was great. Nicely decorated and all the comforts of home and then some. Thanks again and have a Happy New Year.

Our cousins reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was the 3rd year out of the past 4 that my cousins and I met in Big Bear, at the Boulder Bay Chalet, for a reunion weekend. It gets better each year. In 2014, 20 of us enjoyed a phenomenal time, much of it due to the friendly, cozy atmosphere of the Chalet. Ten of us stayed at the Chalet, and we all used it as our meeting home. Everything worked well, and the pontoon boat was utilized to it's fullest. We ate all our meals at the Chalet, enjoyed the room, the extensive group of recreational "toys", the views, the quiet, the ample parking, the 11 second walk to the lake, the BBQ, the big screen TV, and as so many of my cousins put it, "the feeling that we were home away from home again". Many thanks to Nancy, her fine housekeeping crew, and for being an integral part of so many memories. We plan to do it annually for many years!

Family Trip to Celebrate Papa's 75th Birthday

Family Trip to Celebrate Papa's 75th Birthday
  • 5 of 5
The Boulder Bay Chalet is a great place to stay if you want all the comforts of home, on the edge of a beautiful bay...We were a group of many friends and family, celebrating our Papa's 75th birthday...From the youngest to the oldest, good times were had by all...Perfect house if you are all close and want to be together...The lake toys took the fear away from all that tried them, the bay is safe, a TOTAL NO WAKE ZONE! Which is important when you've got little ones trying to paddle board for the first time. We had sun...we had rain...we had early mornings and late night...Through it all, you could not slap the smiles off the faces of anyone in the group! We will be back sooner than you know it!

Boulder Bay Chalet, Home away from home~

  • 5 of 5
I should have written this review earlier, but life went back to normal :(. We took our family to Boulder Bay Chalet and had the most wonderful time that I can remember. The house is so warm and inviting and the boat and lake toys were just what we needed! I really felt like I was in my own home, but had no stress that comes with everyday life. Both my husband and I relaxed and spent quality time together with my father and our children and some friends. Everyone enjoyed it so much, they are all asking when we will be returning. We were so lucky for the beautiful weather and calm conditions that we just couldn't get off the lake. If you could rent one house on Big Bear Lake, I would suggest the only option would be Boulder Bay Chalet. Thank you Nancy for sharing your home with us, as it was truly a memory that we all will never forget. God Bless and see you soon~!

What a mess

  • 1 of 5
We stayed here with our entire family. We told her we had 14 people, 8 adults and 6 kids. She assured us that there were enough beds for everyone. Why would she think that adults would sleep in bunk beds? There are 4 bedrooms, but one is filled with 2 sets of bunk beds. The loft turned out to be an attic with mattresses thrown on the floor. I don't consider that loft area. The place was filthy. It is so loaded with dusty stuffed animals and knickknacks that it can't be properly dusted. The sofa in the downstairs bedroom had food left under it. There is so much deferred maintenance it needs to be gutted and redone. Windows didn't work properly, most had no screens, a recliner was broken, there was no ladder on the pontoon boat, the paddle boat didn't work. I could go on and on.

The view is beautiful and the spot is great. But the place is a mess. Be warned. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: I told this gentleman 6 times that we have a 4 bedroom house rated for 11 people & NO pull out sofas.
How can you sleep even 11 people, let alone the 14 he took, without bunk beds? I am an engineer & I don’t know how. A loft is a non private open space where the ceiling touches the floor. It is not a bedroom. Note: we provide a complete list of beds & room descriptions on every inquiry response so you can plan sleeping arrangements. He did not read it or listen when I read it to him.
Over the past seven year on average The Boulder Bay Chalet has had
499 human visitors per year (that we know about)
59 different groups per year
8 people per group average
3.5 nights per visit average
3492 people can’t all be wrong.
A “Mess” is a matter of taste.
*We are not going to reduce the number of stuffed bears for the 1 group a year that doesn’t like them. Besides, they make great pillows & are much cheaper than the pillows on the couches that keep getting torn & disappearing.
*Knickknacks are part of the charm of a mountain cabin. You should look at the pictures of a house before you rent it. What you see is what you get but we replaced the dining table to seat more.
* This group called as soon as they got in the house complaining that the drawers in the kitchen had crumbs in them. The cleaning staff went back & cleaned each & every drawer in the kitchen, complaining to me that there were no crumbs in the drawers. The day this group left, the cleaning staff found dirty utensils & food in the drawers & sticky surfaces all over the drawers & cabinets.
Additionally this gentleman decided it would be fun to take our 404 Lego-Dupro Blocks out to the SAND. The cleaning staff found the Lego-Dupros scattered all over the garage floor covered in sand. It cost me $60 to get them cleaned.
*The pedal boat has 2 sets of pedals. If you only put one person in the boat, you go in a small circle. I did tell him that.
*We do NOT have any deferred maintenance. The wind, rain, snow & 500 people per year thrash the house every year. All of the windows were checked & working, per our handyman, an hour before this group arrived. Five window cranks were broken when they left.
*I am very sorry this gentleman did not like the house. But, we couldn’t rent the most of any of house on the lake if we aren’t doing something right. We could charge more & close for a week between groups for the repairs but then fewer people could stay & play at the Boulder Bay Chalet.

KZ Family Vacation 2

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year in a row at Boulder Bay Chalet for our annual family vacation (14 of us). As mentioned by others in previous reviews this facility is spacious and has a variety of great toys. New to us this year were the 4 paddle boards which were used extensively. With all excellent recreational items on campus the only reason to leave the cabin/house was to go on some amazing hikes or into town. Before leaving we took a family vote about what we want to do next year for our family vacation. The response was unanimous: BOULDER BAY CHALET!!

From the Owner

We have stocked this home with everything we can think of to make your stay comfy, cozy and easy. Every kitchen toy we could buy, kitchen settings in paper, beautiful Corelle, China and Crystal for those weddings and anniversaries. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and neat. The fireplace even has a remote control so you can control the temperature of the house from any room. Even bed wetters can relax with the 6 bedwetter pads on site. Pets are welcome but we ask that you clean up their dropping and bring 3 extra towels per animal to dry them after they romp in the water and snow. We know you will enjoy your stay at the Boulder Bay Chalet.
