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

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!

Family Getaway

Review submitted: June 17, 2014   Date of arrival: June 11, 2014

Awesome!!! That's all I can say! We had our family thinking we were staying in a bunk house and we would be using outhouses....when we pulled up to the cabin, one of the family members even started crying! It was a sight to see! Everything was laid out perfectly, plenty of room for everyone. The cabin was very user friendly. We even received a call from the owner while we were there, making sure everything was OK and said to call if we needed anything! We were also close to everything, nothing was more than a 10 minute drive. Would HIGHLY recommend!!

Beautiful Spring getaway

Review submitted: May 7, 2014   Date of arrival: April 11, 2014

We had a wonderful time at Mountain Villa!! It was perfect for a 3 generation family reunion / birthday weekend during the spring. Kids and adults alike enjoyed he short hike up the hill that backs to the property and enjoying the view of the lake and ski resorts. The house itself is beautiful. Tons of room and activities for everyone. Great decor. It feels like a comfortable "home" in how it is stocked with games, supplies, etc. However, it also feels very professionally run -- provided linens, well-stocked kitchen, small hotel-like toiletries, very clean and very reasonable check-out requirements. Owner was a pleasure to work with. Thanks!
