About the Owner

Came to CA from MN in the late 60s to teach school in Huntington Bch. Skied in BB and fell and love with it. I designed and built the beautiful home. I am a hands on person so will find many wonderful aspects about the property. It took about 15 years from design to finish. I no longer teach, but work with my investments and spend time with my family and travel to all corners of the planet.

Our family of 10 stayed here for 5 days and had an absolute blast! The rustic interior look us just as beautiful as the outside. Was very comfortable for everyone. One family stayed in the downstairs room that had 2 bedrooms and a play are for the kids! Plenty of space in the house to enjoy with everyone and even able to sneak away downstairs to have some privacy. Almost feels like you are in a different house. Simply amazing! The house is steps away from the lifts and all the kids had a great time playing with the snow on the driveway. Our opinion was that the best time to go into the jacuzzi was early in the morning - if you don't hit the slopes. Thanks for the fun experience!

Exceptional location right across from the ski slopes. Plenty of room in this very comfortable and large home that provides a perfect setting for a family get-to-gether or group of friends that enjoy shared experiences.

Christmas with Family

  • 5 of 5
With the urging of my daughter and the link to vrbo I researched available snow resorts in SoCal and after lots of comparisons of locations and prices I selected this Chalet. I was not familiar with Big Bear as it's been over 30 years since I've been there and we never spent a night when we went. But, the house seemed to fit the needs of our family of 11 (including 4 teens and a pre-teen) and the owner assured me that we would not need to drive to the slopes so I signed the contract! We had to rent from Friday even though we couldn't be there until Saturday, and that was a little off-putting (paying for a night we couldn't use). That said, the accommodations were incredible; kitchen was well-stocked; linens were clean and layed out for us; sleeping arrangements were great. And we did walk to the slopes less than a 5-minute walk down the back stairs and the lower property driveway and across the street! We realized that no one had to wait for the rest to go back and have a rest or lunch; we didn't have to pack a lunch or pay the prices at the lodge. No chains on cars, no finding a place to park and riding the shuttle, etc. We just said, "Who's ready to go across the street and ski?" And when we were inside, we could watch the skiers, the boarders, the jumps. At night we watched the lighted plowers grooming the slopes and the blowers doing the man-made snow. We did have fresh snow the day after Christmas and that was special. The only hitch was the lack of water pressure in all but one bathroom but the owner has been apprised of it and assured us that he would look into it! He seems to be very hands-on when it comes to the upkeep of the property. We did park 3 cars and a pick-up truck there without any problem. There's a good little area across the upper level street for some fun sledding. I'm thinking of coming back to one of the smaller units in the summer, just for a getaway!

Ski Nuts

This is a beautiful chalet home for a large group or family ski vacation. The rooms have huge windows with magnificent views of the slopes. There wasn’t much snow when we were there but they kept the slopes well groomed and filled with snow. The slopes are full of amenities that any skier could ask for.

The chalet was very comfortable, cozy, roomy and well lit… especially during the day. There is plenty of room for a large group to eat with the bar in the kitchen, a huge table plus a smaller one… all visible to one another. It is very well stocked with cooking utensils and linens. There are plenty of showers and a large, heated outdoor hot tub. The comfortable beds are heavenly after a day on the slopes!

We’d go back in a minute!

New Years Eve Getaway

  • 3 of 5
It's that time again...hunting for a cabin in Big Bear for New years! We stayed here last year. Although the location is VERY covenient to the slopes, no one told us that the owner actually stays within the living quarters during our stay. This was a bit uncomfortable just for lack of privacy. He did come to the door twice and one of the times rang the doorbell which woke my friends 5 month old twins from their nap. In addition we brought our own tv and portable satellite dish for all the bowl games to which the owner unplugged! Our poor husbands had to try to find the correct signal for the satellite dish again. So in this regard, we didn't care too much for our visit. The house has plenty of rooms and living space. If the owner wasn't there we would probably go back.

Owner's Response: There is a managers attached quarters. This is copletely seperate with it own entance. On occation it may be occupied. During the holidays when the help seems to disappear and when there is a report for a snow storm. like to have someone there to get people in and out. I often ring door bells and knock to suggest to move cars so they don't get towed or snowed in. There may be cases when there are objects and cords (TV satellite antena) in walk ways and stairs. Yes, I moved the dish not unpluged it. I thought it was in a very dangerous place Safey first!


From the Owner

I had this lot 15 years before I built the home. It took a lot of patients and planning to justify this a home on this unique lot. I believe I did it. You be the judge.

The property is truly unique. You have the privacy, seclution and incredible views, but are just steps away from skiing, golf, hiking, mountain biking and hiking.
