Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 17, 2014
Spacious Living Areas Upstairs * 3 Bedrooms Down * 2 Queensize and 3 Single Beds

Located Just steps - about 100 yards-- to the Snow Summit Ski Slopes

* This is a 'Drive-Up' unit (a wonderful convenience not often considered) with ample parking at the unit.

* Just place your skis, boots, and ski wear in the ski locker just inside the entry, ... and 'Come on in'!

* We have INTERNET SERVICE.... and a 'Play Station 2' for guests to enjoy.

* Because we were looking for the 'Ski Chalet' feeling, we chose a tri-level unit (#129 - see complex map) with a Brick Fireplace and Hearth, and High, Vaulted 'A-Frame' Ceilings! We have since added New Flooring; 2 Flat-Screen TV's and DVD Players in the Upstairs Living Areas; 3 Flat-Screen TVs (with DVD players) in each of the bedrooms; and a New Granite Kitchen (with Breakfast bar) ... and the following: a 'Panini' maker, a crock pot, and a Kreiger Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate Brewer (Don't forget to bring your favorite brew!).

*The Upstairs Living area also features an expandable Dining Table; 2 Separate Living/Lounging areas (each with Convertible Sofa-Beds); a wonderful outdoor Balcony/Patio; and an array of family table games and videos to make this the 'Best' Ski/Mountain Vacation Experience yet!

All 3 Bedrooms, including Master Suite, are located Downstairs where it is Cooler in the Summer, and each contains a flat-screen TV with built-in DVD players, and sleeping accommodations for Seven (queen beds in two of the rooms and 3 Twins in the 3rd Bedroom).

Activities: Skiing at Snow Summit or Bear Mountain; Mountain Biking on the Summit; Hiking; all Water Sports at Big Bear Lake - including wakeboarding, water skiing, and a water park; Bowling; 2 Movie Theatres; a Wonderful Zoo; Golf; Wonderful Restaurants; and so much more...

Note: There is a two-night minimum stay for weekends, due to a high volume of inquiries. We appreciate your understanding!

Parking is limited!

Keep in mind that you are only allowed 2 parking spaces at this townhome. If your group is maxing out the capacity of this unit (10 people), and you will not all be carpooling in 2 cars, you will not have a place to park additional vehicles. Due to different work schedules, my family and I were driving in from 3 different places and could not carpool in. Ideally, we would have met up at one house and came in together but my brother was coming in from Los Angeles, my sister from Orange County, and my family and I (and 1 dog) were coming in from Chino. I realized this after I had already booked the unit, so I emailed the owner asking if she could help me locate any reasonably priced overnight parking areas nearby. She did not respond to my emails or even simply reply by saying "no, sorry, can't help you." It would have been nice if she would have done that. Nevertheless, I figured out a way to secure 2 additional parking spots for those in our group that were arriving at a different time. It cost me an additional $35/night but it worked out for us.
Also, we had an issue when we arrived, and I called to ask the owner for assistance. When I turned on the oven to use it, there was oil/grease at the bottom rack so it started to smoke. I left the owner a message to let her know what had happened and also to make her aware that it was not cleaned properly and that we did not cause the issue, but she never called back to make sure it was taken care of. I just cleaned it up and moved on. That was a bit disappointing since she seemed nice the entire time we were communicating about booking the cabin.
As I said, overall the place was nice, good location and cozy, just a few snags along the way but we made it work. I wouldn't let those things ruin our trip.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry you were less than happy with your stay. I do mention in my pre arrival, you are allowed 2 parking spaces. I did respond to your email telling you to go to office and speak with them. I have searched to find out where you paid an additional 35.00 to park to offer other guests that option. I emailed you to ask where that was and you have not responded. When you called to say oven was smoking I called back immediately and due to poor service with many providers you never responded. I immediately went to the cabin Monday afternoon and it was an unclean broiler. The cleaning crew must have overlooked it, I am again sorry. I just wish you had a better time and also mentioned that I let you arrive first thing Friday morning and leave Sunday evening. Again, I always do my best and I am so sorry about your stay. Kim

Place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was exactly what we wanted, somewhere close to Summit so we could ride our MTB bikes from the lifts back to the cabin for lunch, etc... Perfect location, clean and had everything we needed to enjoy a boys MTB weekend and Oktoberfest. Kim was great and on point thru the whole process. Look forward to renting this unit again.

What a great place!!

  • 5 of 5
Where to start. Me and some friends rolled up to bear for a snowboard contest, and needed a place to stay. After searching all over VRBO- this place caught my eye. Not only was the place amazing - beautiful, great location and tons of fun games included - but Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with. I WILL ABSOLUTELY be staying here for many winters to come!!

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had family visiting from out of state and wanted to take them somewhere special besides just our living room. We picked this cabin because of the awesome reviews and how the cabin looked more up to date than most I had seen. Booking was easy and painless, and the owner Kim is sweet as can be and extremely helpful. The cabin was beautiful and cozy and very close to the lake which was great for summer. Unfortunately we went when was no snow but it is literally at the base of snow summit. I plan to return this winter! The cabin was very clean and spacious. The games and book shelf was a nice addition as we stayed up late playing games as a family. The sleeping arrangement makes it easy for traveling with separate couples or in big families. We barbecued each night out on the deck and went hiking during the day. Overall the experience was amazing and we would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks Kim for a great trip and being so helpful!(:

You can't get any closer to the slopes

Booking this Chalet with the Owner was so easy and hassle free. We were attending a Womens mountain biking weekend. The Chalet is so close to the slopes it made it an excellent choice for us because if some of the girls were done early they just walked steps to the Chalet to shower and get cleaned up. The Chalet was comfortable and clean, neighbors were so friendly, we will be returning to book this cute and updated chalet again.

Awesome Get Away

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here last weekend and had a great time. The house was clean and well-maintained. It had lots of games and books to read. The upstairs was awesome because we were all able to spend quality time together either playing games or watching movies. The rooms downstairs were all very comfortable. It is in a great location, right next to Snow Summit and a short drive from the village and the lake. Kim was such a pleasure to work with. She answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable talking to her. I would definitely recommend this home to my family and friends. We will be back for sure!

Location

From the Owner

For many years growing up in Southern California our family made the 2-hour drive/trip up to Snow Summit, Big Bear Lake, and Big Bear Mountain from the Southern California flat lands. And now we were doing the same with our children. In 2004 we had the opportunity to puchase one of the only 'drive-up','ski-in' units at Snow Summit, Unit #129 at Escape Townhouses, and we have not looked back... For friends, family, and guests the convenience is truly appreciated.

Amenities

From the Owner

Aside from our enjoyment of the Snow Summit Skiing experience, our kids have spent hours building snow forts and having snowball fights. In the Summer chasing squirrels takes priority for the kids; while mom and dad enjoy the fireplace, or relaxing after a day on the lake; or cooking and reading on the balcony, or just relaxing watching a ball game or video on any one of the 4 TVS.
