----- PETS WELCOME -----

We warmly welcome your friendly pets at no additional cost. The back and side yards are fully fenced. The cabin is just steps from the lake.

We apologize, but for liability reasons we require that all dogs stay in the house, in the yard, or on leash. Aggressive dogs are prohibited.

----HOT TUB----

We have just added a new, luxury Jacuzzi brand hot tub with high power jets. Please note that we charge a $50/visit hot tub fee. We include it as a special fee to keep our base price lower, so that guests who do not wish to use a hot tub do not have to subsidize the cost of having one. The fee covers the cost of having a technician test the PH in the hot tub after each visit to ensure it is at a safe level and the additional utility cost that comes with having a hot tub.

If you do not want hot tub access please let us know before you book and we will be happy to remove the fee.


If you are interested in renting a boat for all or part of your stay, please inquire about our Malibux VLX Wakesetter, which is docked at a local marina Boat rental is an additional $300 for 3 hours, plus gas and a $500 deposit. If you want to rent the boat, we will refer you to our captain to confirm dates and times.


We do not warranty that household electronics, including the hot tub, will work. We have many guests and some are not as careful as you would be with these items. If something is not working we will try to replace it as soon as possible, and we will certainly refund any fees you paid for it (e.g., the hot tub fee) but we are not able to offer further refunds. If something major breaks (hot tub, stove, refrigerator, wifi living room television) we will also give you 20% off your next visit or allow you to cancel the remainder of your stay at no charge.

Please note this is a cabin, not a hotel. We do not have full time staff. If the cabin is out of toilet paper, please buy some and we will happily reimburse you. If the BBQ is out of propane, please take the tank to the 711, have it refilled, and we will reimburse you. If we are out of salt . . .well, you get the idea. We have many comforts at the cabin, because it is our own, but we cannot promise it will be restocked like a hotel. What we can promise is we will reimburse for anything you buy for the house and will respond quickly to any issues.

Beautiful Cabin, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the Big Bear Lake area. We had 4 adults and two dogs in our party and stayed 4 days and 3 nights in November. We had a wonderful time. The beds were extremely comfortable and everyone slept great. The cabin was beautiful, cozy and clean. The fenced yard was great for our dogs. The location of the cabin is wonderful. So close to the Village and the Lake. Can't say enough great things about this place. The whole trip was a great experience. We will be staying here again for sure.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 3 overnights for my birthday with our dog in September. We had the best time. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous. The beds were comfortable. The Jacuzzi was clean and hot. The fenced yard was great for my dog. The cabin was the perfect size for us. Location was great too! We will definitely come back again for another stay.

Beautiful and relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5
I booked this property for my parents to enjoy to escape the Las Vegas heat. Christina was very good at getting back to me, and even notified me beforehand to let me know a previous guest had unfortunately broken a window and to inquire whether I wanted to cancel the reservation. My parents went ahead (the window issue was properly handled beforehand) and had a great time. We have rented cabins in Big Bear before, but they said this was by far the best one. It was very modern and nicely done on the inside. They had a great week, and we look forward to booking again here in the future! Thanks Christina!

Great Therapy.

I didn't know how stressed my husband and I were until we got to the cabin and experienced perfect peace. We had thought we would go visit the town and do whatever, but we didn't. We had our coffee outside watching the day begin, Then just did next to nothing except enjoy the silence. Ending our day with a glass of wine and the Jacuzzi. We loved it.

Loved This Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect for those with dogs. My husband and I take our dog everywhere we go so we were glad this cabin allowed dogs at no additional cost, plus has a fenced in backyard. The cabin is so nice on the inside, you can tell it's been recently upgraded and it was super clean. We loved the Jacuzzi in the backyard... a great way to relax after a hike. From the front you can see the lake so we loved sitting on the deck and watching the sunset on the lake... Beautiful! We highly recommend this cabin and would definitely stay her again!

From the Owner

No one wants to vacation in a grubby or dated house. The Snow Den was fully renovated in 2013, with all new appliances, high end furnishings, resort-style amenities, and up-to-date technology. We preserved the cabin's rustic charm by restoring the original wood floors, adding tongue and grove ceilings, and furnishing the house with locally made wood furnishings. A special note for families with pets: We are pet-friendly people and this is a pet-friendly house. The backyard is fully fenced. We do not charge a pet fee. The house is close to the lake, which is a real treat for dogs who enjoy chasing birds and splashing (we recommend an extendable leash to keep everyone safe; it's all fun and games until a bird gets hurt). The cabin is also less than a mile from a snowy hill and park that is great for hiking.
