About the Owner

I'm a frequent business traveler over 25 years. It's like a living out of small suitcase at hotels & airports all the time. Owning a getaway place in Big Bear was my dream to relax and recharge. This is a perfect cabin inviting families and friends with lots of bedrooms and privacy. I love snowboarding with sons and friends during the winter. I enjoy many great summer activities such as hiking, mountain biking, boating and trout fishing. I hope you enjoy Big Bear Lake and our cabin through out the year as much as we do.

From the moment I saw pictures online, I knew I wanted to give this property a shot - Most homes seem dark and old while this one appeared modern and fresh. We definitely were not disappointed! We had four couples and six children (all under 4). The backyard didn't have a fence, but there was plenty of room to play while adults sat on the deck...The rooms were large and clean... The open concept was great for dinners and watching football... And all the small touches (robes/shampoo/soaps in bathrooms) were amazing. Jim was a pleasure to work with - We didn't have to call him for anything, but I really felt like he wouldn't have minded if we did. Overall, a nice getaway for those wanting the feel of home but the comforts of a hotel. We can't wait to book the next trip!

The house was awesome!!!! It felt like home from the moment we walked in. There was such a sense of calm of over the house. Pictures do it no justice. Every room is beautifully decorated with high end hotel accents. The Hiro & Jimmy were a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. My family & I decided immediately that we will rent this home annually. Thank you again Hiro.

Met our expectations! The home was beautifully decorated with a warm inviting feel. There were plenty of towels, the beds were comfy, the game room was an added treat. The owner shows pride in his rental property. We will be returners.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our recent getaway. Our group of three families with young children (8 kids 5 and under!) had plenty of room to sleep and play. The location was excellent and the home was clean, well cared for, and comfortable. The owner and his concierge were quick to respond and very accommodating. We would recommend this home to anyone and would love to return ourselves in the winter!

From the Owner

LOCATION: I was fortunate to find this house at perfect location, very close to Snow Summit. This house was untouched for over 30 years needed total make-over. It took 2 months to build my dream cabin. I'm very happy with outcome of this major renovation, special thanks to my most trusted contractor Bud Bailey Construction. There are many vacation rentals in Big Bear Lake, but not many 5-bedroom house for multi-family vacation. Multi-family vacation means different ages of group and different interests. Skiers and snowboarders always appreciate walking distance to the slope, but more importantly the cabin should be enjoyable for everyone. It's sad not seeing family members for all day on vacation. Staying at Le Grande Retreat, you can make many trips between the slope and cabin for any reasons, feeding baby, lunch or coffee break. You don't need to wait for family members at cold outside or expensive resort restaurant all the time. INTERIOR: Le Grande's decor is not typical Big Bear cabin style. Many cabins offer similar log table, log chair, log bed, quilt tapestries, quilt bed cover. Because I spent so much time traveling and staying at hotels all the time, I wanted to make this place like French-country style house. This project will never end and will be redecorated constantly.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Golf : Big Bear Mountain Golf Course at 3 Miles Nearest Ski : Snow Summit at 0.1 Miles Car: recommended

ONLY 5 DOORS DOWN FROM SNOW SUMMIT, less than 3 minutes walking. Just like Ski-in/ski-out privilege.

Centrally located for all activities and shopping.

3 minutes walk to 7-Eleven, Carls Jr. and KFC. 3 minutes drive to the Village, lake, marina, Starbucks, Vons, K-mart.
