About the Owner

We are an active family and enjoy using our mountain retreat for all the activities that exist in the Big Bear Valley. We never run out of places to explore and adventures share, which made Big Bear Lake the perfect location for us to buy a vacation home of our own. One day, we’d like to retire up here – until then, we’re content to try to keep up with our kids! There are endless options of things to do and see here, all under the glorious California sunshine. We hope that you’ll enjoy all that The Lake House at the Shores of Big Bear Lake has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is probably the best home I have vacationed in; it is truly a beautiful piece of property. We live at the Beach and this was by far superior. This is across from the lake, there are hiking trails and a short drive to both ski resorts (Snow Summit & Bear Mountain). The beds are fantastic, there is a mini-pool table, games and a Hot tub. It is like being at your friends home, nothing like a typical rental. Free access to the internet on the WIFI, many cable movies and games. There was absolutely nothing missing, it is truly set up for 10-14 people, nothing missing. Have a wonderful time!!

Highly Recommended Big Bear Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
First, the owner was super nice, she answered all of my questions and gave us great customer service. The photos accurately represent the interior of the home and the amenities. The layout was functional for our needs and the location easy to find and access. Parking was not a problem. The house is very clean and is well maintained, it looks like most of the furnishings are new within the past year. We spent the weekend skiing and soaking in the spa--it was great! We went into town and walked around at night and sat by the outside fire-pits in town. Big Bear is much improved recently and the Lake House is a great place to stay. I have already recommended this cabin to my friends and family.

The Perfect Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5
This year we chose the Lake House to spend our annunal pre-Christmas family gathering in Big Bear. I chose the Lake House because it reminded me of a historic lakeside cottage but with modern ammenities. I wanted to rent a property with a view of the lake but we were limited on funds and the Lake House was perfect. I feel like we paid a very reasonable price for a very nice home. There was 14 members of my family aged from 1 to 84 and everyone was super comfortable. We loved that the kids had their own upstairs loft area and the adults had the living room to talk and watch TV. We all played in the snow and it was like having a big pajama party that lasted for a few nights. The parking was convienent for our 6 cars. The owner was able to answer all of our questions and she made the booking process very simple. We are already talking about coming back during the summer time.

I spent the weekend with friends in this very nice cabin. I spoke to the owner a couple of times before the stay and she was very friendly and helpful. I've stayed in other VRBO properties before and by far Michele was the best owner. She was knowledgeable about the area and obviously loves Big Bear. The cabin is everything that was stated, very clean, cozy and we loved the large Jacuzzi with the lake view. I highly recommend staying there.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
You know you've found the perfect place when no one wants to go back home. The Lake House was perfect for our entire family, group of 14 including grandma and grandpa. The pictures accurately reflect the condition of the home and we loved the cottage feel. The owners did a perfect job of utilizing the space and thinking of little details that would be appreciated by their guests. My wife and I miss our super cozy master bedroom. The large outside jacuzzi was great for some after dinner relaxing and we used it every night after skiing. The backyard is the perfect playground for the kids to sled and snow play while still being heard. We are already talking about returning during the summer and enjoying the lake across the street. The owner answered the phone every time I called and she kindly answered all of my many questions. Thanks Michele!

Both Charming and Modern

  • 5 of 5
We took a trip to The Lake House for our family reunion. There was plenty of room out on the front deck to dine together as a family and the kids loved eating at the picnic tables. We played games, took naps on the lounge chairs, went bike riding and walked into town. This house is well maintained, clean and decorated in an adorable lakeside cottage motif. The owner takes great pride in this home and I sensed that she was very interested in making sure my stay was memorable. Thanks!

Location

From the Owner

For years I admired this home with its lake views, excellent location and vintage cottage charm and I dreamed of one day owning it. So when the property went up for sale, we decided to buy it. Our family loves nature and playing outdoors! That's one of the main reasons we chose to buy our vacation home in the city of Big Bear Lake. Due to our work schedules we needed to have a place that our family could escape to within a couple of hours. Big Bear is just a short (and easy) 2 hour drive from our home in Orange County, and only slightly longer for our extended family and friends in Los Angeles and San Diego Counties. Access up the mountain is easy with 3 highways leading up the mountain and right in to the city of Big Bear Lake. Drive time is an important factor when you want to ski and travel on the same day. Big Bear truly is a 4 season resort area with so much to do year round. We love being centrally located to so many fun activities in every season -- awesome mountain & trail biking throughout Big Bear Valley, hiking & wildlife viewing, fishing & boating on Big Bear Lake and of course great snowboarding & skiing at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Big Bear City Airport at 4 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Cowboy Restaurant & Bar at 0.1 Miles Nearest Golf : Bear Mountain Golf Club at 4 Miles Nearest Motorway : 330, 18, 38 at 0.25 Miles Nearest Restaurant : There are many excellent Restaurants to choose at 0.1 Miles Nearest Ski : Snow Summit Ski Resort & Bear Mountain Ski Resort at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : Cowboy Beach at 0.25 Miles Car: recommended

Our lovely lakeside cottage is in the perfect Big Bear Lake location, directly across the street from the lake but within walking distance to the Big Bear Marina and the Village shopping area. Bring your water toys and boats as a boat dock can be rented at the local marina for a minimal fee.

In the winter our home is so cozy you may not want to leave the house. However, if you choose to venture outside the local ski lifts are just a couple minutes away. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Ski Resorts are Southern Californians favorite local ski areas. Also, purchase a ticket to one resort and you can ski at both!

Amenities

From the Owner

The Lake House at the Shores of Big Bear Lake has been a wonderful vacation home in so many ways. After purchasing the home in (2013) we remodeled our home with the idea of hosting large groups of friends and families. At that time almost everything was replaced and upgraded. Our great mountain home, can easily house up to 14 people. The home is unique in that the massive front deck can easily accommodate 14 or more at the patio tables and an additional 6 at the dining table while enjoying the a lake view. Having multiple entertaining areas house allows for large groups to relax together while still having their own space. The little kids can sled in the backyard on our own small private bunny hill. Experience the large 40 x 30 private deck, grill and hot tub while enjoying the starry night sky. Relax in the Family room with the giant fireplace and your favorite book. Prepare a hearty meal for friends and family in the modern kitchen. End the evening with a game pool in the Sleeping Loft or cuddle up and watch a movie. Our home is located in the prestigious lakeside community of Gibraltar Point, a quiet residential community. The streets are flat and maintained by the city so during periods of heavy snow our property is still easily accessible. When more than a couple inches of snow falls, our plow service will clear the driveway for you. In the Winter, there is no parking on the city streets but we have a very large, driveway that fits 6 cars. The lake is directly across the street and in the Summer our renters have access to a boat slip at a small additional fee. Big Bear Lake is a public lake that is 7 miles long and has 21 miles of shoreline.
