Beautiful Lake Property

  • 5 of 5
This was my 2nd vacation at this house. We stayed 4 families 13 people including 4 kids (ages 3-12) this time. Lots of everything you need. Clean and neat. I noticed that it is remodeled. All my friends loved it and they like to come back for summer vacation. Deck was our favorite spot with the 2nd barbeque down there was a great idea. Very close to main Summit Ski Area 10 minutes drive. Nice hiking place 15 minutes. Close to restaurants and shops.
And owner is really nice and easy to communicate.

My husband and I took family / &our children to this cabin our first time to big bear during the snow season first time renting a cabin , so lucky we found this cabin! Doug the owner called us upon arriving and leaving to ensure everything was okay addressEd any issues or concerns he was very attentive to our needs. Upon entering the cabin it took our breaths away not only is the cabin AMAZING & huge it sits right in front of the lake , our favorite part was downstairs the pool table cd/ player TV was perfect for our children every restroom was supplied with toilet paper towels hand wash soap etc. the kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed a crock pot every size pot , spoon ,crab leg crackers ,coffee mug ,u can think of it was there! We are 29years old and my parents are 60 we ALL enjoyed this cabin the exact same way - this is a truly amazing breathing home. It suits all ages !! Booking was easy and our deposit was returned promply thank you Doug we will return hopefully in the summer to Fish😍

Extended family of 12 has a blast ringing in the NY in this home!!

My husband and I and three daughters and their husbands and 4 grandchildren (ages 2-17) spent the week between Christmas and New Year's in this home. It was perfect!! Each "couple" had a room and two had their own bathrooms! The teenagers chose to sleep downstairs in the rec room so they could stay up super late and sleep in--worked perfectly. It is very spacious--with room on all three levels for people to spread out if they wish, extremely comfortable and well equipped, in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views and the owner is extremely accessible and attentive! It was very cold and SNOWED while we were there. The heating system did an amazing job keeping the place plenty warm! The owner contacted me to make sure his "person" had come by and shoveled the snow around the outside and where the cars were parked--which he had! We enjoyed the fact that there were staples in the pantry and refrigerator, used some and left some. We cooked dinner every night and found everything there we needed! Loved sitting around the nice BIG table and enjoying the view as we ate! It is a quiet neighborhood and the house is situated on a very large piece of property. The deck and waterfront were beautiful and would be awesome in the summer months! I would love to rent this property again in either summer or winter!

This house has something for everyone!

My family loves this home. From the time we drove up to the property, we knew we were going to enjoy it. It is great for summer and winter which is not true for many of the available properties. Some are good for skiers, some for boaters; but this one has it all!. This is our third stay. We have tried summer, fall and a holiday. I really agree with the person who mentioned how much we appreciated the fact that the owners left many staples in the pantry, making it very easy to make any type of meal without countless trips to the store with a list! You can really have a full holiday or family meal and find everything you need to make a great table. The owner is very accessible and the first time we booked it, he spent alot of time ensuring that the house was a good match for our expectations.

There is no beating the views! Most of us parked on the porch every afternoon to watch the sun on the water down to the dam. The owners has made a nice beach area since I was there so there is a nice new option for sitting in the sand, out of the wind, or down at the dock. It is a great family home, and we will be back soon!

We really enjoyed this house

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time here. I've stayed in Big Bear many times and usually have rented a different place each summer looking for just the right place. I think we've found it! The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, dishes etc. We prepared several meals for a large group. The pantry had several items in it which I was happy to see, as I usually bring my own spices etc. but you don't have to, it had them all. There was a little bit of everything in the fridge and pantry,nice to not have to buy everything up there. There was some hard liquor left and we enjoyed that too! The beds are all comfy, bed linens and towels are great. Loved all the little sitting areas and the little ones loved the new sand area the owners had recently put in. The deep water dock and sitting area is really nice, we enjoyed the afternoons sitting down there. No problems with launching the water toys. It was nice to not have to worry about moss in the exhausts! This house has lots of room to spread out, and it is a work in progress, but we found everything to be nice and clean. We had no problems with the hot water and we had 8 in our group. We even had a pool tournament down stairs. Our family really liked this house and we had a great time for the 10 days we were there. The owners were great, checked with us several times to address issues if we had any. We will definitely be back!!

Needs some work yet.

My family stayed in July 2014 with great expectations. Upon arrival we thought the exterior of the house was nice and charming. Upon entering the inside we were a bit disappointed.
Pros: nice seating with fire pit in front, outside.
2 grills for BBQing.
Boat Dock
Nice updated downstairs master suite.
Cons: The kitchen is old, which is fine, but it needs a good scrub down.
kitchen island was not attached, almost fell on my keister.
Living room and downstairs furniture looked like it was from a yard sale.
master suite had a stain on the comforter
downstairs bathroom not really usable due to it's size.
personal items throughout the house
On average everything else was "ok" but we did expect something a bit nicer.
Would I rent this again, possibly if the price was lower or some things were fixed.
