Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

It is hard to believe all these activities are at your disposal and many are within walking distance. There is an unobstructed, indescribable view of Big Bear Mountain Ski Resort and the surrounding mountains.

You can relax on the deck watching the birds and squirrels play in the ponderosa pine trees, or keep an eye on the skiers and snowboarders while enjoying a warm fire or cooking on the BBQ. If you are a skier or snow boarder, you will be sleeping across from one of the best ski ares in Southern California. You may be one of the first skiers on the slopes and return for lunch and nap and head back for more runs in the afternoon. At no extra cost you can catch the tram and ski at Snow Summit free of charge. This is the best winter location in So CA.

Two 4 BR chalets next to each other very similar Mountain views living is larger and cost a little more.

Also have 6BR VRBO #149392 sleeps 15 in beds and a 2 BR VRBO # 151424 sleeps 6 in beds.

About the Owner

I have been the owner for over 30 years. Just fell in love with Big Bear years ago and just can't seem to let go. Taught school in Huntington Beach for many years and enjoyed working and playing in Big Bear in my spare time.

bear mountain chalet

  • 1 of 5
This 'chalet' was 3rd world travel at a 5 star rice tag. The facilities were filthy and shabby, with sub par electrical and cardboard cheap mattresses. The blankets were so old and worn that they were crispy. I went to the local walgreens to buy new blankets for our visit. The location was certainly ideal, but at what a price! The wifi did NOT work despite promises that it did. the lamps were broken and the lighting circuits were very limited. the kitchen utensils and pots, pans, etc were filthy and outdated. I was not only disappointed, I was disgusted, as was my family. NEVER AGAIN : (

Owner's Response: I do take all comments seriously and am always looking to improve to make my property better to make my visitors happy so that they will return. When tenants are untruthful, exaggerate and hurtful you think of some ulterior motives. My number is outside the property and our management company numbers are inside the property. I did not hear of these concerns and comments until they were posted in this review. I do know that during the holidays management companies are overwhelmed, that is why I chose to be in Big Bear, to make sure my people were well taken care of. I did note that this party left my chalet in such a mess we needed to rake the carpet before it could be vacuumed. Dirty pots, cutlery and dishes were left everywhere. I suspect that this review is posted for the sole purpose that this party would not be charged for their neglect. I don't claim that my chalets compare to the Taj Mahal, but they are well worth the price if you want a fantastic location and a comfortable clean place to stay. Our chalets are very well equipped and have comforters on the beds, and spare blankets. In addition the 4 bedrooms have dual pane windows and central heating, with vents in all rooms. We have heard from past guests that the queen and full sized beds are comfortable. (No cardboard mattresses). If there were any concerns that that the place were not clean or up to par, we would have taken care of them promptly if notified. Yesterday, I upgraded my modem and router to improve the WiFi service. The electrical outlets are all working and appear on each wall. There are wall and ceiling lights in all rooms in addition to an assortment of lamps. Management is instructed to test all lamps and leave spare bulbs on the premise. I do take much pride in my chalets and many of my tenants are return visitors. I have had a family that comes from Brazil for 17 years straight. I am a responsible owner and I do care about my visitors experience.

Amazing October Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our cabin was close to everything for family fun: the zoo, the forest with bicycling/hiking trails and golfing. We didn't need our car. The chalet was roomy, clean,and with a well-equipped kitchen, all we needed to bring was our favorite foods. From our balcony we admired the views and beautiful changing colors of the fall season as we BBQ'd our meals. We took an evening family stroll to admire a clear, starry sky from the forest. Our third night was magical as the weather changed and we were surprised by a light snow fall. Our family enjoyed the beautiful sights created by the new fallen snow and envisioned our family's return for a winter ski season stay in our 4 bedroom chalet right across from Bear Mountain Ski And Snowboarding Resort.October 7, 2013

Memorable experience at Bear View Chalets, So many activities within walking distance..

  • 5 of 5
Views from the bedrooms, living are and deck where awesome. You can see the forest, mountains and ski resort. Our family hiked thought forest and observed many birds and all sorts of trees. One day we took out bikes to the top and biked along the sky line trail (what an experience). Our family really enjoyed the animal park, especially the grizzly bears, but each family member had their favorite. We were so close we could hear the animals at night and were mystified by the their sounds . Our family could also hear and see some of the native birds and animals from our deck. My husband and I enjoyed the hot tub at night with a view of the ski resort and beautiful night ski.

What I appreciated most was the homey feeling and comfort of our chalet. It was not fancy, but had everything we needed. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the BBQ was used often. We are looking forward to coming back again and staying at our wonderful chalet. Maybe try the winter when the children can ski and snowboard as it is just across the street.
I certainly would recommend this one of kind location.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you and your family enjoyed the wonderful wild area around my chalet. Being on the very edge of town really gives visitors the mountain feeling that many are looking for. Being at 7500 feet the weather is truly an Alpine atmosphere where the wheater can change abruptly. It may be raining in the village and having a snow storm at my chalets. So happy you had this experience.
