This is the perfect mountain cabin retreat for families to enjoy together!

The village and lake are a short 5-10 min drive. The Cabin is a great for a couple of families to share. The spacious Master bedroom has a king bed, TV with cable and DVD/VCR, plus a window seat (with down-filled cushions) that can also be used as a comfy toddler bed. The 'Alpine Family Retreat' Suite is on it's own level and is decorated in blue Swiss Chalet decor and has a queen bed, a window seat (toddler bed) and a crib.

There are 2 twin beds and 2 full beds which make it the ultimate in cabin-style slumber party fun! One word of caution, the stairs to the loft are a bit steep so are not appropriate for very little ones. We have a baby gate at the bottom to help keep those extra small monkeys downstairs!

About the Owner

My name is Toni and my husband Pete and I feel so fortunate to own this cozy cabin nestled amongst pines trees overlooking Bear Mountain ski slopes. We have been sharing our mountain getaway with renters for 15 years now and truly love knowing that other families are making special memories there as well.

Our family enjoys retreating to the cabin as often as we can and when we can't it brings us joy to know other families are able to enjoy the cabin with their family and friends!

Pete and I have 2 daughters (age 7 and 10) and a 2 yr old Golden retriever named Molly. Our family enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, the beach and traveling to fun new places. We also rent our beach home in Carpinteria which has allowed us to travel during summer with our family. Although our absolute favorite destination is still Thompson Timbers cabin! This is our 'happy place' where all worries seem to disappear :)

So Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This is our 7th straight year renting at Big Bear in the winter. Each year we've rented a different cabin because none of them have been quite right. This year though, we found the PERFECT CABIN in Thompson Timbers. We'll never stay anywhere else! There were 6 of us (3 adults, a high school aged girl, and two elementary-aged boys...oh, and a golden retriever). Everyone was perfectly comfortable. The boys LOVED the loft (and the tire swing, and the boulders to climb on outside). The rest of us loved having separate bedrooms with truly comfy beds. The layout of the cabin was excellent - we never felt cramped. We walked to the slopes and to the Alpine Zoo. We hiked up behind the cabin (also walking distance). We relaxed in the jacuzzi each evening. Also, something small but really nice in a rental cabin was that this really felt like someone's home. It was well decorated, there were felt like staying at a dear friend's home...not at a rental property...which made it that much more relaxing and inviting. Lastly, Toni was an absolute DREAM to work helpful, kind, responsive, generous, etc. I wish all owners were as gracious as she is. We'll be back...hopefully soon!

Will be returning to this gem of a cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a group of 5 couples for our New Years getaway and we will definitely be returning to this cozy mountain cabin! First of all, the location is absolutely amazing! You can literally walk to Bear Mtn resort and have an awesome view of the slopes right from the outside wrap around deck! The cabin was so warm and inviting - as soon as we stepped in the doors we felt right at home. The decor gave you that true cabin woodsy feel and there is plenty of space for everyone! We really enjoyed the luxury of using the Jacuzzi and the cabin had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Best of all, the owner is such a pleasure to work with and provides all the info you need for your vacation in Big Bear. I highly recommend staying at this property and can't wait for our next trip to Big Bear so we can enjoy the all the accommodations this cabin has to offer!

What a wonderful location for our family Christmas. Eight adults, two small children and a little dog. Everything was absolutely perfect. Lots of room for everyone and so very cozy. Loved the hot tub and view of the mountain. Would recommend this to anyone. Hope to return someday.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5
Rented in Dec 2012 for two families (4 adults / 3 kids). It's a clean and cozy cabin and a lot of sleeping space (yes, easily can sleep 10) ... kids especially liked the loft. Living room is not big, but overall there is enough space for two families to move around, play board games, etc. Cabin is located close to Big Bear Mountain and importantly for us, on the outskirts of the city so we could easily find a good place for sledding in a short walking distance. Toni, the owner, was very responsive and easy to deal with. I should mention that I got full deposit back (although that was not the case with one of my prior rentals in Big Bear). I would definitely recommend and consider for future stays.

We had fun!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our vacation in big bear .

The cabin was clean.
The jacuzzi was awesome.
Loved the balcony and the heater .
Nice neighborhood.
And very nice and kind owners. ( she was very helpful and nice )
Fair prices !!
looking at the pictures i thought the cabin is very small specially the living room , but i was wrong. nice size bedrooms , large balcony , nice size kitchen and the living room wasn't that small we were 10 ppl and was good for us.but i will recommend renters to bring their own shampoo,body wash and hair dryer.

We were only disappointed by the rental hours. usually wherever we rented house or cabins before in this all years either they allow us to check in a little earlier before sun goes down or check out a little late. But unfortunately the owner had other families coming in,so we arrived at 5-6pm on Sunday and got out at 12 o clock Tuesday. we only had Monday to go out and enjoy our vacation.

But will recommend this cabin to everyone . We will definitely come back to this cabin again (slow seasons).

Thank you tony !

Fall in love

  • 5 of 5
Every year I spend my birthday weekend in Big Bear, my previous cabin was taken and I stumbled upon this lovely gem. With my luck it was available and more that I could have ever hoped for. Toni was easy to work with, a delight to speak to and also gave great tips on what else to discover. I am amazed no enough people take holiday in the Fall. Fall is my favorite season, perfect weather, the smell of camp fires, beautiful colored leaves cascading the ground. The home is surrounded by beautiful trees. There's an abundance of wonder here inside and out.

There's parking for 3 cars, even though we only had 2 with us. As you enter the cabin, you are instantly warmed and feel right at home. Every adornment was chosen so thoughtfully, every room had character and pieces of love in it. Accommodating for any person that may consider staying here, kids and adults alike. Any questions I may have had, was all in their handy guidebook filled with tips, food, instructions, codes, find a delish restaurant you haven't tried before.. you name it. Don't call just flip it open, how convenient! Many times up in big bear you lose service on your cellphone, don't fret they have a landline and wireless internet too! Oh it doesn't stop there, the hot tub is very clean and hot hot hot. Cozy up fireside. Ample sheets, blankets, towels you name it, pack lightly. The kitchen is fully stocked, take what you want, replace what you finish. A very give and take, feel at home lifestyle which is definitely the air in Big Bear.

The back patio views onto Big Bear slopes, which I can imagine looks amazing in the winter. But for us, it was Autumn and you could see clouds roll in over the mountain tops and trickles of bright sun. Step out into the patio and inhale.. ahhhh, do I have to go home? I was reluctant to leave the next day, no joke.

Fantastic shower pressure. Tv in the master, living and the upstairs loft/cuddle area (great for kids, they'll feel like they have their little own hideaway). Or go up there and tell stories. The movie collection is amazing, reminded me of my youth. You can walk out around the area, go on an adventure stroll, hike, whatever you like. Quick drive down to the lake and super convenient to groceries.

All in all my experience left me with smiles and I hope whoever considers this cabin in the future, feels the same. As, I most definitely will be back every year, and probably again this winter!

From the Owner

This cabin was our 'dream location' as it is just a short walk from ski slopes of Bear Mountain and nestled in a small neighborhood that backs up to National Forest on one side and sits just above Bear Mountain. The cabin was an original owner cabin that was a lot of fun to redecorate and make changes to like a large wraparound deck with jacuzzi. The cabin is the perfect size to enjoy with 2 or 3 families or cozy enough for just the 4 of us as well. We never tire of going to the cabin and wether we are off hiking/biking/skiing or just reading a good book by the fire watching the snow, we always thank our lucky stars that we own this amazing rustic retreat!
