Expanded mountain bike runs, with more being added. Ziplining is now added as well, along with bar & grill amenities.

Golf / Hike / Fish: How will you find time to do everything that Big Bear offers? Do it all, or do nothing at all as you relax and take in the serene mountain environment.

About the Owner

When Bart and Carol Ann purchased this property in 2006, it was in 'original' condition, as if it were frozen in the 1970's. Lots of work and money later, it is one of the nicest townhomes in the Escape complex, and very close to the Snow Summit action - but without the noise.

This is our personal family vacation home, and we take good care of it. If you are willing to do the same, we would like to rent to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I took our two little ones to Big Bear for the first time. We found Bart's place and from the photos and location, felt that this would be a good option. It was absolutely perfect. The downstairs provided more than adequate living, dining and kitchen space. The upstairs afforded us multiple options for sleeping arrangements- our three year old loved the bunk beds and the baby was comfortable in a pack and play that fit easily in either bedroom. The location was fantastic- we didn't know the area and wanted to be close to the heart of the city but far enough away for a quiet retreat- this place satisfied both needs. We could walk to Snow Summit to ride the lift for a nice walk on top of the mountain. It was a short drive to the zoo, lake, restaurants, etc. Parking was close to the front door- a few steps and short walk down a path. Bart was a wonderful host. He answered our naive questions thoroughly and gave nice suggestions for eateries and activities. We absolutely plan to return next year and would stay here again.

A lovely condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 great nights in this lovely condominium. The housekeeping is immaculate and the condo has many small touches that make it quite special. It is REALLY close to the Snow Summit lifts. Easy walking distance even for us older guys to get to the slopes. You will happy with these accommodations.

nice and quiet

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location for skiing being so close to Snow Summit!

During the summer is quiet and peaceful... very relaxing location.

A short drive into town and a jewel of a town it is!

A lot to offer from hiking, kayaking, etc. outdoors to eating and drinking and music at The Cave as well as street musicians .

Nice & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Decorated very cute, walking distance to Snow Summit, and very well maintained grounds. Our family had a wonderful time.

Only complaint was lighting was low, during the day it's fine because you can open all blinds or drapes to let sunshine in.

Cozy getaway, walk to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay. Between skiing and boarding stints, it was a short walk back to the townhouse for lunch. We only needed the car to go out for groceries; there's a supermarket about a mile away. The house was immaculate and as advertised. We definitely plan on returning.

One warning: if there's been recent snow, the California Highway Patrol requires chains or snow tires to drive up to Big Bear -- and you will need them.

From the Owner

You can hike, bike, ski, board, go boating, or do nothing at all. Right outside our front door is Snow Summit. Walk to and from the slopes for fun skiing. In spring/summer/fall, take your mountain bike up the lift to the top and enjoy the ride down the fire roads and trails. Lots of hiking trails and wildlife to see. You don't even need to get in your car once you arrive.

It is expected that all guests treat it with the same respect they would give to their own home. Thank you for your understanding.
