traveler reviews for this big bear lake house rental


Review submitted: February 20, 2014   Date of arrival: February 13, 2014

This home is so great! The owner thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable, like we were at a fancy hotel! Plenty of room for all 11 of us, super comfy beds and bedding. Plenty of towels/sheets, kitchenware, he even thought of some extra surprises that made us feel so special! Spa was amazing and can I just say that the vicinity to Snow Summit is awesome! a 5 minute walk at the most! This home is one of the best rentals my family has ever rented! I would highly recommend it! Thank you, Hiro!

Perfect for fun and relaxation!

Review submitted: January 21, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

This was such a beautiful home to stay in for our long weekend vacation! We were a group of 7 young professionals (30-somethings) looking for a fun and relaxing getaway for the weekend. Because there hasn't been much snow yet this season, it was important for us to stay at a place that would be fun whether or not we had great snow - and Le Grande definitely qualified!

The house was immaculate when we arrived, and the owner even left a couple of little "welcome" treats for us, which gave it a nice warm feel. The rooms were all spacious, and very comfortable. The bathrooms even had hair dryers - the nice ones with diffusers (which I would never have expected).

The owner was very responsive, each time I contacted him with questions before our arrival. The concierge did a great job making sure we knew where everything was and made himself available at any time if we needed help or even just advice on where to go for dinner... But we didn't want for anything the whole time we were there, and we were hard-pressed to leave the house even to get on the mountain! Snow Summit is less than half a block up the road (less than 4 minutes walking in boots... most of which is the Snow Summit parking lot), and we were able to come home for lunch & power naps in between snowboarding sessions. The jacuzzi was a must for us, as we knew the key to relaxing would be a good soak, after a long day on the mountain.

In the evenings, we had a great time making dinner together, as the layout allows the chef to be social with whoever is seated at the bar stools next to the stove, or on the super comfy couches in the living room. The dining room table is great for family-style dinners and playing games after dinner. The game room is also pretty well equipped, with a pool table, electronic dart board, monopoly, and checkers. The wetbar in the game room has a wine fridge and a full set of wine and champagne glasses as well. The owner thought of so many details, and we were pleasantly surprised every time we opened a drawer!

We can't wait to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone! :)

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: Thank you very much for sharing your vacationing experience! I'm so happy to hear that your group enjoyed every part of the house. I look forward to your next trip to Big Bear.
