vacation rental description

Make an unforgettable alpine summer or ski trip with family and friends. This spacious 5,000+ square foot custom log home is one of a kind--referred to by the local community as 'The Lodge'. You'll enjoy 2 sitting rooms with 25 foot ceilings, lodge pole windows from top to bottom, 4 elegantly decorated bedrooms with large game room, three oversized fireplaces, custom rock work and wood accents throughout. Private and secluded, 5 decks afford mountain and valley views in each direction. The property backs to an eagle preserve, ideal for wooded forest walks, exploring and sledding for the kids.

First time renting a private property? Not sure what you'll get? Rest assured, I've been renting the Mt Villa for well over 5 years and every single guest review has been 5 star. Take a look for yourself.

Sleeping Arrangements for 14+: 2nd floor Master Suite with a King and attached full bath; 3rd floor Master Bedroom with a King and attached full bath; 3rd floor Bedroom with a queen; 3rd floor bunk bedroom with a bunk bed and two sofa pullout singles; 3rd floor loft with two twins; 1st floor Gameroom serves also as a bedroom to sleep 4 with a full sofa pullout, a trundle bed with two singles and attached full bath. Additionally, a twin mattress is tucked into the gameroom closet to sleep one more.

The house was built new in 2005 and features top of the line appliances and conveniences. The house is 3 levels. The first floor, which is street level, enters into a large foyer followed by a expansive gameroom with fireplace and attached full bath. Stairs lead upstairs to the second level, where you find a 25' ceiling sitting room comfortable for 12 with fireplace, dining room for 10, spacious kitchen with center bar, and master bedroom and adjoining full bath. Expansive decks on either side are accessible from the second floor. Off the kitchen, a secluded deck offers a BBQ, patio furniture and a 6 person spa with built-in ipod cradle ideal for late night and apre-ski soaking. Accent landscape lamps blazon the towering pines extending a cathedral like experience while you sit, soak and indulge in your favorite beverage. The upstairs third level hosts 3 bedrooms surrounding a loft with fireplace and expansive views.

This Mt Villa sleeps 14 comfortably. All first class appliances, furnishings and interior decorator touches abound. Pipe music throughout the house sourcing music from the TV, DVD, stereo or portable devices such as an ipod. Complimentary firewood. Located in the exclusive Big Bear Castle Glen Estates, this property offers privacy and space, it's backyard a 10 acre eagle preserve.

The house is located within 2 miles of the two ski resorts. In the summer take in a stroll to the lake, or ride bikes (5) provided at the house, for boating, jet skiing, water skiing and fishing.

traveler reviews for this big bear lake villa rental

Incredible Villa!

Review submitted: August 15, 2014   Date of arrival: July 31, 2014

This house is stunning and perfect in every way! Our extended family of 15 stayed here on vacation and had the best time! The house is very clean, comfortable and spacious. The kids had a blast playing on the hill out back and the adults went mountain biking, hiking, water-skiing, jet skiing and to the zoo which were all located close by. It is a wonderful place to stay! There are so many games at the house to keep anyone occupied and the main floor, kitchen and game room had more than enough space for all of us to be together! Martin, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and made everything very easy. The cabin does not have AC so if you go during the summer, check the house for fans and open all the windows for fresh mountain air! We had the best time and will definitely be back! Thank you again for making our family vacation so memorable! We would highly recommend this villa to anyone!

Multiple family mini vacay

Review submitted: August 1, 2014   Date of arrival: July 29, 2014

What a fantastic place to get away from the Vegas heat during the summer! We had four family's with toddlers stay here and it was the perfect place. Enough space to sleep everyone VERY comfortably and have the little ones run around safely. They went crazy for the open deck space; and the morning critters (squirrels and chipmunks) were my three year olds favorite! It was five minutes from the lake and we were able to rent a pontoon to fit everyone comfortably. Martin (the owner) was very accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. The summer rates were affordable and for as much room as we got I'd say it was well worth it. The wives appreciated that there weren't video game consoles there so we could "unplug" for the weekend, however the cable hook up still kept the men tuned in to the MLB trade deadline. One thing is there is no AC, so if it is a bit warm, just open up the windows and check the closets for extra fans. We took advantage of the beautiful home and folded our cameras with pictures. There is plenty of shopping 2 minutes away if you forget items and the down town is a five minute drive. This was our first visit to Big Bear from Las Vegas. The drive is relatively short at about 3.5 hours. Well worth it. Early check out time is tricky so plan on an extra day or so to really take advantage of this wonderful property and place. We will most assuredly be making the trip again soon and hope to work with Martin again. Such a beautiful and relaxing stay!!!

Fabulous Memorial Day Weekend

Review submitted: June 30, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

What a special treat this home is! Our family of four booked at the last minute, Martin gave us an unbelievable deal to stay in his amazing cabin. The interior alone is jaw dropping, so much detail and love was put into the building of this home. The grand room off the kitchen is simply that, grand! We stayed there in the evenings by the fireplace feeling completely spoiled. The home is well suited for large parties, however our children, aged 5 and 8, loved sleeping by the window beds on the second floor, they felt it was their own personal sleeping fort. The kitchen was well equipped and the grill worked great for our steaks. The bikes provided were a real perk as well, we easily rode to the path on the lake, just be warned coming back up is a challenge :) as the house sits high in the estate. Thank you Marvin for allowing us to stay at your cabin on such a short notice, we were truly spoiled and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!! Would highly recommend for small or large groups!
